  1. This is an attempt at explaining MetaDoom stuff, such as mechanics, easter eggs, source of resources and stuff etc.
  2. Don't expected 100% accuracy or anything.
  4. ==RANDOM SHIT==
  5. * Mod's logo shows off Doom 1, 2, 3 (BFG lost edition image) and 4
  6. * Background represents first levels or early areas of 1, 2, 64, 3, DRPG, D2RPG and 4
  7. * Main theme is a remix based off D4, intermission theme is a E2M3 remaster from Andrew Hulshult and game over theme from ultra nightmare mode is a piano cover of E1M8
  8. * Texts in the TITLEPIC, Quit messages and even game over texts are lines related to/from Doom games, manuals, characters dialouges, lore related shit and even stuff like Repercussions of Evil and a Chex Quest reference (Martian Buddy and SnapMap are referenced, for example)
  9. * Difficulty setting menu uses Doomguy's face in a "Wolfenstein 3D-esque" fashion
  10. * Doomguy has voice sounds related to beta Doom 3
  11. * Generally, a lot of thing may have beta Doom 3 sounds, but also assets from games that aren't even id related
  12. * If gibbed, his face literally explodes, using an animation from PSX Doom
  13. * Female gender option replaces Doomguy with Kira Morgan from D2RPG/Other gender options replaces him with Dr Peters from Doom VFR
  14. * There's optional content like breakable props, secret enemies and some other shit
  15. * Dead marine corpses can have randomized variants based off D64, 3, RPG, 4 and even some cut Doom sprites
  16. * Some gib sprites may come from DRPG
  17. * Sound of doors/crushers crushing bodies may come from Duke Nukem 3D
  18. * Mod normally has a progress based randomization system, but Content Locust makes everything actually randomized
  19. * You also have options for performance based stuff like preventing some monsters from jumping or vanishing blood effects
  20. * Wolfenstein SS have variants staring SNES port soldier, Mac port Officer, Apple stealth Wolfenstein game enemy and Wolfenstein RPG green soldier with RTCW sounds
  21. * Commander Keen has Dangeround Dave, Rescue Rover, Shadow Knights ninja, Catabombs 3D skeleton and a Hovertank 3D citizen
  22. * Keycards have randomized skins based off D64, 3, D2RPG and 4, along with a D4 sound (That one where you take a chip from the dead red armored marines)
  23. * Skullkeys get randomized skins from D64 and D4, along with a D4 sound
  24. * With default keybind being N, there's a codex inspired by 2016, in which info gets filled up with picked up items/guns and killed enemies
  25. * Codex info references ingame lore, text from game manuals, Doom media like the movies (RRTS) and novels (Robotic lost soul, sphere coating someone with a liquid) and even Impse
  26. * Intermission screen plays a sound from D4 everytime you beat a level and it has a score number tracker
  27. * The score system and 6 treasure items (That spawn next to health/armor bonuses) is based off a cut Doom feature, inspired by Wolf 3D
  28. * Besides the 6 treasure items, other score pick ups include a UAC Credit from DRPG and D4 Marineguys based off four different Doom armor designs throughout the series
  29. * Score can also be affected with secrets and kills
  30. * Mod's menu has some hellish runes in the background, possibly Doom 3 related
  31. * ZDoom marines are acknowledged in this mod, so rail gun AI doomguys are implied to have the Gauss Cannon and Berserker guys do the D3 scream noises
  32. * Theres cheat codes too, one of them makes rooms darker to reference D3 (IMPULSE 2004 in console), while another turns floor/ceiling textures into flat colors to reference SNES Doom (IMPULSE 16)
  33. * Kinsie worked on a thing called Consolation Prize where you can play mods in maps from PSX Doom and Doom 64. This led to a special feature in MetaDoom, where Doom 64 items can get "specific" spawn spots for the sake of faithfullness
  34. * If you IDKFA, you get all codex entries and can spawn D64's demonkeys from the inventory
  35. * If your health is low enough, you get a beeping sound from D4
  36. * If you die, Doomguy's hands have a first person animation based off D4
  37. * Throughout updates, versions of the mod had names referencing Doom related characters like some from the novel and D4
  38. * Water splash effects may be Heretic related
  39. * In the player setup, the player's class is "Slayer"
  40. * Intermission screen has sounds like rocket explosion (kills), Wolf 3D treasure pick up (items) and GZDoom secret notifier (secrets)
  41. * Some Doom 2 monsters have "fixed" sprites, probably to fix stuff like Arachnotron's "holes" and a grey thing next to a frame of a Revenant punching
  42. * The "hehee" sound shows up when you do the Impulse cheats
  43. * Barrels have D4 exploding sound i think and also (maybe) Smooth Doom sprites
  45. ==WEAPONS==
  46. MetaDoom has a lot of toys to play with. Some of them have designs meant to mix up different designs and elements of certain weapons. Some also have alt fires as a nod to D4 and to make things more interesting. There's also some randomization rules where for you to pick up X, you must get Y first except for the melee weapons for some reason.
  47. >FIST
  48. Has its own keybind as is a simple move that makes enemies drop health pick ups when punched, as in D4 fashion
  49. >1st slot: EGM SIDEARM
  50. * Pistol whose design sort of resembles D3 and 4
  51. * Has infinite ammo and shoots laser instead of bullets
  52. * Alt fire is a lantern, which could resemble D3 BFG edition but it's actually based off D3's duct tape mod
  53. * Menu option turns off intinite ammo, so it uses bullets as ammo, obviously
  54. >2nd slot: COMBAT SHOTGUN
  55. * D64 look but still has a normal reloading animation
  56. * Alt fire is D4's grenade shot, costing 4 shells
  57. >2nd slot: HOLY WATER PISTOL
  58. * From D2RPG
  59. * Main fire deals low damage but makes most fows cry and run like cowards, while instantly killing LS's (Origianlly, it just stunned them and dealt more damage on LS's and maybe Archies too but less on zombies, but i might be wrong)
  60. * Second alt fire refills your health but wasters more water
  61. * To refill its ammo, just stand on most liquid textured floors (Originally it was filled with water tanks and using toilets i think)
  62. * When you refill with water, you may heard a sound that is RPG related
  63. >3rd slot: SUPER SHOTGUN
  64. * Has D2's design but with different sprites, animations etc and both fires are the same
  65. * Can show up in Doom 1 sometimes, by replacing Shotty placement
  66. >3rd slot: FIRE EXTINGUISHER
  67. * Doom RPG weapon that can put up Lost Souls, fireball projectiles and even flames/fires from certain props
  68. * Second fire can save you from Archvile's fire attack (I think originally it was mainly used to put up fires blocking paths and deal more damage on LS's and Archies)
  69. >4th slot: ASSAULT RIFLE
  70. * Doom 3's machine gun, which sort of resembles classic Doom's chaingun, but apparently it fires one tick faster, due to complaints of it sounding weak
  71. * Alt fire is D4's micromissiles, which wastes a lot of ammo
  72. >4th slot: CHAINGUN
  73. * Design mostly represents D64 and 3, but painted blue
  74. * Primary fire is obvious, more damage at the cost of waiting times (I thnk it also uses a beta D3 sound)
  75. * Second fire: D4's turret more, unleashing three barrels to do more damage at the cost of ammo (It also prevents you from walking instead of just walking slowly)
  76. >5th slot: ROCKET LAUNCHER
  77. * Design represents D1, 64 and 3
  78. * Firing sound may be D3 related
  79. * Alt fire is from D4, detonating rockets in mid air
  80. >5th slot: GRENADE LAUNCHER
  81. * A weapon from D4's multiplayer DLC
  82. * Like a traditional GL, its grenades either bounce around and explode shortly after or explode on impact with enemies
  83. * Second fire is a gas grenade, that drops short lasting gas, that continues to hurt enemies (Or sometimes you)
  84. * Grenade sprites may be Duke Nukem related, while the green cloud is probably from Hexen
  85. >6th slot: PLASMA RIFLE
  86. * Design and sounds represent classic Plasma gun and D3/4 (Could resemble all versions, actually)
  87. * Has no recoil
  88. * The screen on the weapon shows bars being filled when firing, this is so when they're full, you can use the alt fire
  89. * Alt fire is D4's heat wave, which seems to be composed of stronger Plasma balls than a simple Plasma wave
  90. * It also affects your surroundings, although i'm not sure if original heat wave did that or just foes in front of you
  91. >6th slot: LIGHTNING GUN
  92. * D4 multiplayer weapon, whose primary fire is a string of electricity that shocks enemies and wastes a bit more ammo
  93. * Alt fire is borrowed from the Plasma gun in D4, which is a harmless projectile that stuns enemies
  94. >6th slot: Gauss Cannon
  95. * D4 weapon, that is pretty much a Quake Rail Gun, kinda
  96. * Design sort of represents the original BFG9000 or at least early sprites and the toy they used for it
  97. * Primary fire even has that spiral effect from Q2 and Skulltag
  98. * Second fire is just a scope for the sake of balance and maybe a page taken from the Vortex Rifle
  99. * If you're too close, it can cause splash damage and hurt you
  100. >7th slot: BIG FUCKING GUN 9000
  101. * Design represents D64 and 4
  102. * Uses seperate ammo from Plasma gun (Argent core)
  103. * Main fire may deal a bit more damage than usual and the projectile can damage enemies nearby, as inspired by D3/4
  104. * Second fire is a stream of BFG balls based off an unused BFG fire (It can even bounce on floors/ceilings) but there's no red projectiles
  105. >7th slot: UNMAKER
  106. * Doom 64's hellish weapon whose design also represents the Reaper (D4 multiplayer DLC) and because it's originally names, it's technically nicknamed after a Doom bible weapon
  107. * Like the original, it starts off as an odd cousin of the Plasma rifle, but once you pick up the demonkeys, it fires faster and gets to shoot three projectiles at once
  108. * Said demonkeys can spawn next to BFG/Unmaker spots and in D64 maps (Consolation Prizes), they're where they're supposed to be
  109. * Demonkeys also unlock and upgrade an alt fire, where you charge up 1 to 3 laser beams
  110. >7th slot: SOULCUBE
  111. * Doom 3's magic cube whose design is based off Doom 2's spawn cube
  112. * Once picked up, enemies start dropping "soul essance" and you need at least 10 of those to make the weapon work (May be based off D4's MP mode called Soul Harvest)
  113. * Once you got 10 souls, you can use the Cube to instantly kill one enemy and they'll drop ammo/health/armor like in D4 fashion
  114. * Despite being a BFG replacement, it can replace chainsaw in rare occasions (E2M5, Map 10)
  115. >8th slot: Chainsaw
  116. * It's design and sounds mostly resemble later designs but it's technically just a yellow chainsaw, so it may not matter that much
  117. * Primary fire is the same, while second is just a strong and slow swing attack
  118. * Press the FIST key and you get an attack that makes enemies drop health goodies
  119. >8th slot: Fire axe
  120. * Doom RPG's axe, which normally had a black head and yellow handle, but who cares
  121. * Primary/second fire: Slow melee attack that makes enemies bleed and drop health for a while, but zombie types die instantly
  122. * Can destroy barrels without exploding them, this can be usefull
  124. ==INVENTORY==
  125. This mod has one like Heretic and items use a shared ammo system, so if you get X you also get Y but using X also wastes use for Y.
  126. You get 25 "ammo" and you can use these items during normal gunplay (Think of it like Doom Eternal's shoulder cannon before that was a thing) but there's a less than a second delay break when you use something
  129. * Based off D3's grenade but how it works is D4's frag grenade, but it still explodes on impact with foes
  130. * Spawns next to rocket ammo
  132. * D4 item that sort of stuns enemies, while sucking their health to heal the player
  133. * Spawns next to Plasma ammo
  135. * D4 MP item that is thrown at the air and travels to one direction, while travelling foes nearby
  136. * When it hits walls it explodes and that can hurt
  137. * Spawns next to Plasma ammo
  138. >DOG COLLER
  139. * Doom RPG item that spawns next to bullet ammo
  140. * You shoot a yellow thingy that turns dog enemies into melee weapons
  141. * These dog guns can gain armor points from hurting enemies and if you're tired of this, you can throw them at enemies and they'll go boom
  142. * Originally, you could have used them as shields
  144. * D4 MP item that spawns near health
  145. * It creates a solid blue transparent wall (May or may not resemble shiled from D4 possessed security) that stops most enemies attacks, while yours go right through it
  146. >HOLOGRAM
  147. * D4 item that creates a holographic image of the player to distract enemies from the real you
  148. * Spawns near Hastespheres
  150. * D4 MP DLC mines that pawn near backpacks
  151. * These mines can be put on walls/ceilings/floors and take less than a second to activate
  152. * When they detect a target, them jump/fly to them and explode
  153. * If they don't detect them, however, they just take like 20 "ticks" to deactive and become pickable again
  154. >ARTIFACT
  155. * Doom 3 Resurection of Evil's magic heart that spawns near Plasma guns but only if you got a BFG
  156. * When you use them, they slow down time for 5 seconds, giving you lots of opportunities
  158. ==ENEMIES==
  159. Much like weapons and items, they get progress randomization too and some monsters are combinations of things too. Because some enemy types are just redesigns of the same monster, they take Doom RPG enemies from otherwise palette swaps
  161. * He has new/changed sounds and hitscan replaced with tracers and these changes apply to other zombie types
  162. >HELL RAZER
  163. * D4 monster who has more health than Zombieman and charges a laser that deals continuous damage
  165. * See zombieman
  166. >Z SEC
  167. * Based off D3's Z Sec, with a shotgun, rifle zombie's helmet and the ability to roll, which according to Doomwiki, is from the pistol zombie
  168. * Has D64/PSX sounds
  170. * Works as a replacement for the normal chaingunner, but his name and blue armor represent a blue zombieman from DRPG, while he carries the assault rifle
  172. * Carries the chaingun and his red armor indicate he's in fact the Doom 2 heavy weapon dude, despite the differences
  174. * Based off Doom 3's commando zombies (both types), so he has both a chaingun and a tentacle arm that can slap you hard enough you're thrown to other directions
  175. * Lines may as well be beta Doom 3 stuff
  176. >IMP
  177. * Mostly unchaged but he has one new sound when hurt
  179. * Can replace Imp in darker areas and he works faithfully enough (Faster, transparent, faster projectiles) he even gets specific spawns in Consolation Prize's D64 maps
  180. >IMP LORD
  181. * D4 imp, who is faster and can teleport as an homage to the cancelled D4
  182. * Name may be taken from orange DRPG imp
  184. * These two may be unchanged for what i know
  186. * DRPG dog enemy who works as a faster, but low health Pinkey, that can be a weapon with the Dog Collar
  187. >DEMONDOG
  188. * Same as above but blue and strafes a lot
  189. >CERBERUS
  190. * Another dog, this one is red and jumps around
  191. * These dop types seem to use Wolfenstein 3D/Quake sounds, with Cerberus being a Quake Fiend reference
  192. * Dog enemies may also have a high chance to replace Pinkies if zombie types are nearby
  193. >BULL DEMON
  194. * D3 Pinky named after DRPG yellow pinky, who has a charge attack inspired by D4 pinky
  196. * Exclusive PSX enemy that can replace Spectre in darker areas and as expected, he's faster and has more health
  197. * He uses D64 Pinky sprites but the blue/inverted color effect still makes him Nightmare Spectre
  198. >TRITES
  199. * Doom 3 spiders who can replace Spectres in darker areas
  200. * Three of them spawn at once and they're small, fast melee monsters who at times can attach to the ceiling and walking on it (Inspired by a Strife enemy)
  201. * They can only spawn in early levels before never showing up again
  202. * Sometimes they don't show up at all
  203. * They have their own special toggle option due to possible arachnophobia
  204. >SAWCUBUS
  205. * D2RPG chainsaw enemy, based off the green variant Great Sawcubus (Using the Java look)
  206. * Replaces Spectre and does the chainsaw attack on you (Duh)
  207. * If gibbed, he may drop a chainsaw
  208. * Sounds are meant to be Doom 3 Sawyer related, but they might be Beta D3 stuff
  210. * Unchanged but he can be gibbed and drop some unique gore sprites
  211. >MALWRATH
  212. * D64 Caco named after yellow DRPG Caco that shoots three balls at once
  213. * May or may not D3 related sounds
  214. >WRETCHED
  215. * D4 Caco named after DRPG blue Caco who has a tongue attack (Taken from D4 MP) similar to Former Assassin's tentacle arm (I think this tentacle/tongue thing may be based off Strife's Loremaster)
  217. * If you get too close, he can bite you now
  218. >BEHOLDER
  219. * Green PE from DRPG who lacks arms so he looks more unique
  220. * Spews smaller LS's named Forgotten Ones
  221. >RAVOHART
  222. * Doom 64 PE named after DRPG blue PE who spits two LS's at once
  223. >LOST SOUL
  224. * Sprites are changed so his flames look more "authentic"
  225. >PHANTOM
  226. * Cut/alpha LS sprites with green flames (Possibly to reference the Invulnerability sphere since it used his sprites)
  227. * Named after green LS from DRPG and uses D4 sounds (They were altered to sound robotic)
  228. * Can strafe, has a projectile attack and has higher infighting chance
  230. * Smaller LS's meant to represent human skulls named after an LS from D3Resurrection of Evil
  231. * They're small and swarm around, while only originating from Beholder
  232. >MANCUBUS
  233. * His attack shakes the screen for some reason
  234. >BEHEMOTH
  235. * D64 Manc named after DRPG blue Manc, who spits travelling streams of flames based off D4's Manc's flamethrower
  236. * May use D3 sounds
  238. * D4 Manc with more health, whose (Continuously) shoots green sticky stuff that sticks to the level and explodes shortly after
  239. * Unique death animation where he explodes shortly after dying and this only harms enemies
  241. * His attack may use a different sound
  242. >SPIBORG
  243. * D64 Arachno who's name is made up due to lack of RPG Arachnos
  244. * His attack his charging a powerfull fast Plasma ball
  245. * Originally in D64, he shoots two plasma balls five times and charging a Plasma ball is more of a D4 possessed soldier thing
  246. >REVENANT
  247. * Uses PSX Doom sounds but i'm not sure about the beeping homing rocket noise
  248. >FIEND
  249. * D4 Revenant (He's pretty much a regular Rev with fleshy/bloody bones right now) who can shoot streams of micromissiles and jump with jetpack
  250. * He still has Rev's normal attacks and is named after blue Rev from DRPG
  251. >ARCHVILE
  252. * If you kill him, he drops BFG ammo
  253. >SUMMONER
  254. * D4's take on Archie who has less health than him, but still retains his attacks
  255. * Summoner can teleport and summon Unwilling, by throwing D2 Spawn cubes in the air and let them drop in the floor, to spawn said Unwilling
  256. * Also drops BFG ammo after and i don't know about his alert noise
  257. * According to the normal randomization process, he'd possibly the last enemy you'll encounter
  259. * Inspired by zombie type enemies from D4/3, they can also throw blood pieces like Quake 1's Zombies
  260. * They're weak as fuck too
  262. * Based off D4, by design and ground slam ability, while using D3 sound for alert noise and retaining D2 death sound
  264. * D4 version, who's bigger than HK
  265. * He has a stronger ground slam (It forms like 4 red triangles that hurt for a bit) and shoots red fireballs that split into four green fireballs
  267. * D64 sprites and D3 sounds
  268. * Can strafe, shoot while walking and may have more health
  269. * Slide ability from D4 and can kick you if close enough (May be a Doom bible thing)
  270. * Slide ability may also somewhat take something from Heretic's Maulotaur (Maybe)
  272. * Unique design meant to combine old and new versions of the monster, while looking like it's coming out of D64
  273. * Main attack is rapid fire Plasma balls
  274. * Second attack is shooting fireballs to different directions through the floor, possibly based off D64 Mother Demon's fire attack or a D4 attack where she'd shock the floor with blue lightning (I think it even uses that sound)
  275. * She also does a pose from a cut magic attack sprite in the second attack
  277. ==ITEMS==
  278. HEALTH: Health bonus is just a shinier vial with some D4 sound, simpick is blue colored D64 sprite and medikit is a D4 health pick up, possibly using a DRPG sound
  279. ARMOR: Bonus is a D4 armor shard, green armor is D2RPG sprite (Name is Security Armor, possible D3 reference) and megaarmor is a D4 pick up painted blue
  280. BACKPACK: Uses D64 sprite and has a D3 sound, since there was a backpack there
  281. BULLETS AMMO: D64 clip sprite and a classic ammo box still kept
  282. SHELL AMMO: D64 sprites with slight alterations
  283. ROCKET AMMO: Single rocket from D64 and a box that may be a bit original (But still somewhat resembling D64?)
  284. CELL AMMO: Both pick ups look like a mix of classic Doom and 64 sprites
  285. ARGENT CORE: BFG ammo spawning near either Plasma ammo or dropped by dead Archies while its design is unique but fitting
  286. LOOT: Already explanied above somewhere
  287. RADSUIT: Design is a mix of classic Doom radsuit and D3 Hazmat suit, while icon was the power up's design in D64
  288. COMPUTER AREA MAP: Design is D3'S PDA, sounds are possibly D4 related (There was a map machine there) but maps on screen? Maybe just random classic Doom maps (There's also a joke in the codex about Doom being ported into devices and a reference to the Doom bible related title "Evil Unleashed")
  289. INVULNERABILITY: D64 sprites but brighter and with yellow eyes, while the blue filter is a reference to the power up's effect in the GBA port
  290. SOULSPHERE: D64 sprites but brighter to resemble classic Doom and pick up sound seems to be based off both D1/2 and Megahealth from D4
  291. MEGASPHERE: The Manc inside the sphere is based off D4 and pick up sound is Megahealth, again, from D4
  292. BERSERK: Design is the BFG edition "pill in the box" edit, sound is a little D4 screech related to those trial runes and icon is an angry eye from D2RPG; Gameplay wise it makes the player's fists do more damage and faster (Maybe enemies drop more health) but it's timed; Traditional Berserk makes Berserk last for a level and i guess that's how the fist sort of becomes an ingame weapon (Shares same slot with pistol)
  293. QUAD DAMAGE: D4/Quake power up whose design is a purple sphere with a Rev inside it and it obviously increases damage for your weapons but if Traditional Berserk is on, they're gone; They have health near them because they replace Berserk which normally gives you 100 health
  294. HASTESPHERE: D4/Quake 3 power up whose design is a red sphere with Doomguy's helmet (D64 Megapshere) and it obviously makes you run fast
  295. LIGHT AMP VISER: Design is D64 sprite but slightly altered and icon is a bit of its D64 sprite, not sure about sound. It also has green lenses, possibly to reference a cut night vision from early Doom prototypes, which may have lead to GZDoom's night vision mode
  298. Not everything is covered and there's some accidental misinformation and poor grammar, but i just thought this would have been interesting
