Doom 3 Zombie Modifications? Graphics Overhauls? Now it's Like New!

I dusted off my old 3 disc copy of Doom 3 after finding some mods to bring it's graphics and effects up to date! Also some cool single player maps for some instant zombie killing fun.

Graphics & Effects Enhancements:
  • Wulfen Texture Pack - "The purpose of this package is to make doom 3 much better texture quality. The textures have a noticeably higher resolution and much sharpness than original textures. Features: -over 500 High resolution textures -Most texture are 16 times bigger than original doom 3 texture. for example if the original texture had resolution 256 * 256, now has resolution 1024 * 1024 -About 85%-90% textures is completely retextured (modeling in 3d max, baking, drawing), 10-15% textures is rescaled and overlay other texture in higher resolution -large number textures has height maps, so looks rally wonderful with parallax occlusion mapping or relief mapping"

    Installs to your \doom 3\base\ folder.

  • Sikkmod v1.2 - "Sikkmod is a general enhancement mod for id Software's 2004 FPS: Doom 3 and its expansion pack: Resurrection of Evil. Its main purposes are to update visuals of Doom 3 to a more modern level and to allow the user to customize various aspects of the game to suit their preferred styles all while maintaining the core mechanics and aesthetics originally put in by id Software. The mod also includes a number of fixes to and better organization of stock files in order to create a clean and more stable base for future mods"

    Installs to your \doom 3\base\ folder. This mod comes with a "mysettings.cfg" file and I suggest you copy it's contents (opens with notepad) and paste them at the end of your autoexec.cfg file

    GTA IV - Short Stories of Survival Zombie Horror - Machinima + Links to MOD downloads!

    "Short Stories of Survival Zombie Horror" is a new GTA IV Machinima webseries I am creating for fun and for the love of both the "Zombie Apocalypse" and the crazy customizable world of Grand Theft Auto IV.

    Rather than traditional "episodes" and for the sake of my own short attention span, this series will vary in lengths and release, but expect something every few days, if time permits!

    Subscribe to my youtube page so you can catch new episodes!

    So you want to trick out your PC copy of GTA IV? Check out these recommended Modifications (Zombie MODs included in the list!)..


    Always run your game with "\Steam\SteamApps\common\grand theft auto iv\GTAIV\LaunchGTAIV.exe"

    Some mods require the latest GTA IV .NET script Hook in addition to the ASI loader (I recommended Yet Another ASI Loader)

    Some MODS (i.e. "Zombocalypse" & any other reskin/texture replacement) require the use of an editing program called OpenIV

    For advanced players who want to get the best, and newest texture mods, visit this Forum thread: GTA IV Texture Overhaul Thread

    Now to the essentials for modding GTA IV PATCH 7!
    Regarding texture replacements, install in the order I have listed!
  • InGame Trainer - Change time/weather/Teleport around/God Mode and a whole lot of other great options with a configurable ini for you advanced users out there.

  • To enhance your graphics for patch7, I recommend using RealityIV 1.62 by DKTronics70 - I also highly recommended using this with RealityIV, injectSMAA - Antialiasing in GTA IV / EFLC. Neither of these enhancements require ENB (which doesn't run well with Patch7) and using both of these have improved my average FPS.

  • GTA IV Ultimate Textures - (4.37 GB!) - This will replace tons of textures in GTA IV, bringing out the detail.

  • RealizmIV - This is a large download as well, but when its done, be sure to create a new folder on your desktop to install this mod too otherwise it will replace some files and break your game. After it's installed into a temp area, go to the "pc\models" folder and copy over the vehicles.img file to your real install location! The other textures won't be needed thanks to the above "Ultimate Textures" pack (which is better).

  • Tweak ALL the Peds MOD - This will visually enhance all the pedestrians in GTA IV! You do not need to use OpenIV, this file is ready to go.

  • TreesModIV Nice textures for the trees in Liberty City!

  • Trafficload - This script-mod will fix a bug where sometimes too many Taxi's are everywhere, while also diversifying the cars that show up around you.

  • Blood Tweak v1 - Nice blood FX!

  • More Liberty City V3 - This increases the amount of pedestrians that are outside populating the world of GTA IV.

  • No Watermark MOD - Great for your edited clips captured for youtube; this removes the "Rockstar SocialClub" watermark.

  • No Intro Logos - Load your game up quicker by removing the Rockstar logos from the start of the game.

  • Zombocalypse
    - zombie skins for the pedestrians in GTA IV. Goes VERY WELL with any GTA IV zombie script-mod. Skins are made by MrSnaztastic (visit his youtube page!) You will need OpenIV to install the skins. Goes great with the "Tweak ALL the Peds" mod mentioned above!

  • Left 4 Liberty Infection by motorsport71 (visit his youtube page!) - Fantastic zombie scriptmod for (the best in fact) with a lot of great features like slow/fast zombie toggle, vehicle destruction aka random explosions in the city, fire bullets, you can call in 3 survivors for backup, & more!

  • MOD Pack (by Hippiecommunist) - in this mod pack is the best instant zombie apocalypse you could ask for. Press F9 and suddenly hordes of the undead will come after you, you being the only survivor left. The zombies moan in this mod as well as in Left 4 Liberty Infection!

  • Triple Pedestrian Amount

  • Violent Pedestrians in EFLC
  • Custom Left 4 Dead 2 Survivor Model Downloads

  • Download my L4D (1&2) autoexec config
    ("F9" Toggles 3RD Person Modes)

  • I am no longer able to host downloads for the mods, however most can still be downloaded from MrLanky's website or from L4DMaps

    APB Reloaded (BETA) - Review - F2P MMO Third-Person Shooter

    APB Reloaded is a free to play mmo third-person shooter. This footage is from it's Public Open BETA release. Download the game @

    APB Reloaded is a revival of a game released last year of similar title that was not free-to-play. Having seen clips on youtube of the older title, and being a new player to it, I can say that graphically APB:R is far superior. You can extensively customize your character, choosing to be a "good" or "bad" archetype, which each has their own consequences for going against their grain in the form of losing Prestige levels. There are a variety of gameplay mechanics when it comes to Modifying weapons, player and your vehicle (yes, you get a vehicle from the start) and you can take any NPC (non-player character) vehicle off the streets. If I had one complaint about this game, it's getting use to a 1 second delay with driving controls.

    Getting back to customization, there's much more to it, including a built in music-sequencer with a variety of sample packs. Why? Because you can create "death themes", a short 2 bar jingle that you create to torment the ones you kill. There's an entire marketplace for it in-game, where players can sell their creations. Unfortunately it's currently inundated with Lady Gaga and other pop/rock hits that truly succeed at leaving me feeling violated when I die.

    There's also a tag/symbol editor that allows players to create their own icons, clothing designs & graffiti tags. Another niche in the marketplace allowing artists to make some money. Money made in-game is used to maintain your character, having to buy ammo frequently, try out new guns as they are unlocked through level progression, create different outfits, tattoos, accessories, etc.

    Teamplay in this game is unique and quite easy to jump into. Within a couple clicks, by default "u" toggles a window showing teams, and you can set yourself to "LFG", then "k" readies yourself to accept team missions which an objective is shown on-screen, letting you know where to go and what to do. Combat mechanics will take some getting use too, but your standard weapons will be quite sufficient until you can unlock the N-Tec assault rifle.

    There is so much more to say about this game, and maybe I will cover that at a later time. I recommend this title though to anyone who enjoys a good, strategic shooter.
