Hey, it's time for a patch for.. The Dark Mod! It's just a bug fix patch but that's still welcome. You can read the full update on moddb.com along with some map updates they're talking about.
The Dark Mod was a mod for Doom 3 but, thanks to the GPL code release, is now a standalone game. It brings the atmosphere and tactics of the Thief franchise to a free, GPL game for everyone. Custom missions are separate so if you're interested check those out too.

The D3 Hexen mod wanted to let everybody know that even though 2013 wasn't a very great year for the mod, 2014 promises to be better! Maps are coming along well and they've got a new programmer who's jumped in feet first to get things done!
You can read the whole update on moddb.com
Hexen: Edge of Chaos for Doom 3 is an officially sanctioned mod by id and Raven. It's not a remake, but a new mod for Doom 3 based around the characters and content of the original game. Check out their website for all the details.

bladeghost aparently liked the Predator movies so much (who doesn't?) that he remade 'ole Painless, the minigun from the movie, in Doom 3 to replace the stock minigun. Awesome! You can download it at Mediafire.

It's a day or or older, but here it is! Oneofthe8devilz has posted a status update for the mod Mars City Security. MSC is a coop Doom 3 mod (the last in development?) that puts some emphasis on “Next Gen” visuals and, as the name suggests, coop! The big hurdle before the first public release is getting the Doom 3 BFG network code over to the original Doom 3 code, so if you can help, let them know!

I've been pretty busy the past couple days so instead of posting what happened over the weekend in several posts, here's your weekend roundup!
..::LvL has some new map reviews for the new year:
Alien Arena is showing off a new look for their iconic characters: the aliens. This is “Generation 3”, as they call it. Click here to see a comparison from years ago to now.
A project I recently became aware of named “Doom 1 as 1 level, Doom 2 as 1 level” is showing off some progress. It ports Doom 1 to Doom 2's engine then makes the entire game of Doom 1 as level 1 and the entire game of Doom 2 as level 2. Version 2.0 has been released and it's suggested to use the Zandronum engine as Zdoom doesn't work properly.
Doom One, the Doom mod that makes entire episodes of Doom (the original) in to single maps (with tweaks & flow changes between “maps” is showing off some new work. Click “Read More” to view.
