Submission + - The Dark Mod beta released (

WWWWolf writes: "The Dark Mod is a total conversion mod for Doom 3 that recreates Thief 1 and 2 -style gameplay and finally finds a good use for all of those neat-but-ultimately-useless-in-main-game features of the Doom 3 engine, like lighting and physics, all in glorious detail that pushes the limits of the engine and shipping with gigabytes of awesome gothic fantasy/steampunk assets.

After five long years of development, the team has released the 1.0 beta of the toolkit; this will let people fire up GtkRadiant (or DarkRadiant, TDM's own Doom 3 -optimised variant) and start making awesome missions. For those who just prefer sneaking in shadows, there's a tutorial mission and three complete ones. The mod needs a patched-up Doom 3, and runs in Windows (both retail and Steam versions of Doom 3) and Linux."
