Things that need to happen that will make Doom 3 BFG Edition worth what we spent on it.
Hindsight, what we payed for it definetely covers the cost for every game in that bundle. 7 games in one set is freaking awesome. But what they suported was mediocre. So, I've compiled a list of things that should happen within the next set of patches to make this worth our money.
1) Multiple IWAD support
- For those of you who don't know, IWADs are the file types that Doom, and Doom 2 are. They basically hold the core functions that isn't the doom engine itself. IE the main monsters, level sets, and graphics. I would love to plug in my copy of Heretic and play that. Final Doom would be nice too. (I can simply rename the Iwads, but the game crashes when I try to exit)
2) Vannila Iwads
- I want to be able to play Map31 and kill some nazi scum. I want to type into my keyboard: idclev31 and go and do that. When I'm there, I would type in iddqd and idkfa, and kick some Nazi ♥♥♥, I already killed enough zombies.
3) Custom Wad and PK3 support.
- If you're like me, Doom wasn't enough. Doom 2 still wasn't enough, and neither was Final Doom. If you're like me, you have a copy of Sky May Be, and Deus Vult II. Because 130 levels wasn't enough for you. Custom Pwads is one of the key features that made Doom so successful, is that the fun didn't have to stop after 130 levels.
4) Multiplayer Support for Classic Doom/Doom 2, and Co-op for Doom 3
- I think this is self explanitory, who here was hoping to have some classic deathmatch with a far larger community? I went back to using Zandorum when I saw non-multiplayer for that. I even dug up my old copy of Doom 3 just to play co-op.
5) Upgrade the Doom engine into something more like Zdoom.
- I'm talking to you id Software. If you want people to play Doom like a modern FPS, you give them tools and features like a modern FPS would be. Zdoom is by far, BY FAR, the best Doom engine out there.
6) Dedicated servers for Doom 3
- This is what happens...
- Find Match
- Looking for server
- 99/100 times it will make you the host
- if you happen to not be the host:
- Host ping 0
- your ping, along with everyone else's: 200 - 400
- C'mon id, you guys are smarter than this.
7) Mod support for Doom 3.
- I don't know about you guys, but I want to put sikk mod on this so I can play thee lost missions without lag. Doom 3 and RoE run just fine, but Lost Missions lagged with a few Imps on screen. And I bet a lot of people would just love to fix the flashlight and other things.
