Title: Best custom AI mods for Doom 3?
Post by: xyzz on April 25, 2017, 07:15:43 PM
Hi everyone.

I've seen there are some mods that change the way the AI works in Doom 3. Strelok's Denton's and a few others.

My question is, which ones have actually the smarter AI. I was used with playing with Denton's mod.

Thanks

Hello welcome to the forum :)

Don't know if any AI mod exist but IMO The dark Mod has the best custom AI system but is not a Doom 3 mod anymore ( it still uses idtech 4 but modified), so i don't think this is what you wanted.

I was hoping for a mod that changes the AI of the defeault Doom 3 enemies, not necessarily  all the creatures, because some are made to be dumb. But guys like Z-Secs.

There was some script mods a while back for pack ai & a bot, but that's all I remember off hand.

I never found the so any more stupid then other shooters of the era. 

Ai could be enhanced with new animations but 95% of all game ai have the same Abilities as doom 3.

The big change with d3 vs other games was the aas system.  Most games even years later still used the same method as doom 1 and quake 1 for monster pathing.  In doom 3 the aas tells the ai how to go around obstacles vs just beelining straight to you.  Of course if there's a straight line that's what they will take.  :)
