Sikkmod v1.1 released for Doom3 and Resurrection Of Evil

Sikkpin has just released an updated version of his amazing mod for both Doom3 and Resurrection of Evil. In case you were unaware, Sikkmod is a general enhancement mod for Doom 3 and its expansion pack: Resurrection of Evil, designed to update the game to a more modern level visually, allow some customizations gameplay wise, as well as including fixes and better organization to stock files to be used as a base for future mods.
This new version features some gameplay additions and fixes, HDR dynamic lens flare effect, Bokeh DoF, color grading through the use of a lut and an all new interaction shader using linear-space lighting, normalized Blinn-Phong specular model.
Here is the complete changelog:
v1.1:

– Gameplay:
————-
– Added a “Use” function. This is used to pick up moveable objects(g_grabMode = 1), pick up items(g_itemPickupType = 1), and to search corpses for items(g_itemSearchFactor > 0),
– Adrenaline power up is now carriable with “_impulse26” to use it. It now has the effect of cutting damage in half as well as infinite stamina.
– Added the ablility to carry health packs (g_healthManagementType = 1). “_impulse25” to use health pack. The “g_healthPack*” cvars are used to customize the mechanic.
– Using “g_itemRemovalFactor”, items can be randomly removed upon map load, just to add some randomization
– Using “g_itemHelmetFactor”, security armor will be randomly replaced with a new armor item: “Marine Helmet”. This has an armor value of 25.
– Using “g_itemValueFactor, each item’s value will be randomly set. Like the variables above, this is just to add some randomization and re-playability.
– All items now have physics. There may be some items here and there that are “sinking” into ground but they should still be obtainable, this mostly happens with items on the bottom shelf of storage cabinets.
– Made further tweaks to max ammo capacities
– Changed max armor capacity to 50
– Some minor tweaks to weapon damages for better balancing
– Increased chaingun’s rate of fire
– Accuracy is increased when zoomed in and Weapon Handling Type is set to “Realistic”
– Splash damage is now added on top of direct damage.
– Increased the locational damage scale for “chest” do to some difficulty complaints (the previous scale kind of bothered me, as well)
– Decreased the locational damage scale for “head” for the pinky demon and cacodemon as they were a little to easy to kill with the previous scale
– Added a toggle for whether the Cyberdemon can be damaged by normal weapons.
– Added a toggle for whether enemies of the same rank will fight each other.
– Adjusted the volume and distance variable of the pinky demon’s combat chatter sounds
– Removed the crude random zombie script and implemented a better random spawning system via code. It’s still in its infancy but it works good enough for now and its not limited to just zombies.
– Graphics:
————-
– Updated and improved HDR implementation
– Added HDR dynamic lens flare effect
– Added color grading through the use of a lut. Much faster and more versatile than using math
– Added Bokeh!
– Added an accumulation buffer style motion blur
– Improved the look of the soft shadows with using Box or Poisson blur methods
– Added localized radial blur effect from explosions
– Added a frost build up effect on the screen when in outdoor areas
– All new interaction shader using linear-space lighting, normalized Blinn-Phong specular model
– miscellaneous tweaks and improvements to most shaders
– Interface:
————-
– updated, of course, to include all new cvars
– made the sikkmod options menu more pretty.
– setting “g_useDynamicHud” allows the hud to fade when stats are static for a period of time.Pressing “reload” will manually show the hud.
