Good non-zdoom gameplay mods?

If it's not ZDoom, it goes here.

Good non-zdoom gameplay mods?

Post by Ravick »

Hi there.

I know it is quite a strange thing to ask here. :mrgreen:

Some friends and I are working in a small vanilla map pack for Doom1. It is supposed to run in the most source ports possible, so it is really purely vanilla. As I know GZDoom automatically corrects many glitches in the game, such as slimetrails and stuff like that, I mostly use PrBoom to test it and find such glitches.

Recently I've also played the mod using Doom 4 Vanilla and Freedoom, as they work just fine in PrBoom and I liked it a lot. So I tried to find other gameplay mods that would work with PrBoom. As I mod for G/Zdoom for years I know a lot of Decorate/Zscript mods already, not almost none made for vanilla.

I guessed it'd be easy to find other mods just like D4V but I'm really struggling to google for it. Could someone say some gameplay mods that would work in Boom-like source ports? I'm not really into mods that "enhance" to Doom experience (just like Beatiful Doom or Smooth Doom), but ones that change it (pretty much as D4V does). I mean, ones with new monsters or weapons, or any other things that changes the balance or the visuals of the original game.

Thanks in advanced. :)

Here's a few I found that allegedly work in DOS:
-Boiled Doom (Brutal Doom for DOS): https://www.moddb.com/mods/boiled-doom- ... -canditate

-Action Doom (Contra-style TC that's built on DeHacked): https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/level ... a-c/action

To be fair, I only use GZDoom so I can't confirm what sourceports these will work with.

I was also a GZDoom-only player until I made a couple of maps for this pack, then ai got addicted playing these vanilla things, lol

Thanks, I'll try them both! I've player Action Doom before, but it never occurred me to use it s a gameplay mod.
