* notes *

I'm a fan of id Software's games. They're fun to play, are always
technically solid, and great to make mods for.

Barista 3 is the third in my little Barista series. Barista 1 was
for the ZDoom engine, Barista 2 was for the Quake 2 engine, and now
here's Barista 3 for the Doom 3 engine.

One of my goals was to push for more interactivity. It always bugs me
when you enter a restroom and cannot click on the toilet or hand-dryer.
Does activating a hand-dryer really enhance gameplay? No, not really.
But it is amusing on some strange obscure level. And so, in Barista 3,
there are lightswitches, cabinets, drawers, lockers, gadgets and
doodads that you can interact with.

This mod was meant as a test-bed for learning how to edit Doom 3.
Prior to this, I had worked with Doom 1, Quake 2, and Half-life.
Doom 3 follows the same principles (brushwork, entities, targets),
but introduces many new things.

For me, the two biggest things are the scripts and guis. I feel these
two elements have to be the biggest advances made in fps games in the
past several years (script files have been around for quite a while,
but I believe the gui stuff has never been done before). The two have
their own mini-languages you have to learn, but it's well worth the

Uncompressed, the files clock in at about eleven mb. This surprised
me. I only included two custom art assets (two jpegs) which accounted
for only 90k. Since almost every file was a tiny text file made in
notepad, where was this huge 11 mb coming from?

The bulk of it came from the compiled map files (.map .cm .proc),
which ended up being 9.3 mb. Even though the map is quite tiny,
the collision and bsp stuff end up taking a lot of room.

The guis take up about 1.2 mb, though most of that consists of the
700k mainmenu gui.

With that being said, though, since everything is a plain text file,
they compress incredibly well. The 11 mb ended up zipping up to a
nice 2.3 mb.

The compiling process is fantastic. In the older id Software engines,
compiling times were ugly. If you were very efficient, you might skate
by with a 30-minute compile time on a fairly large map. A large map
may take something like two hours. In Doom 3, the compiling process
is something along the lines of 20 seconds! This made me flip out.
Lighting is done in real-time, VIS is done manually through visportals
(I think), and the only thing the game compiles is the BSP.

(and of course, the preview window in DOOMEdit calculates light in
real-time, so you don't even need to run the game)

The book labels and post-it notes are plain guis. Unfortunately, I was
restricted to only using the color black since any other color will "glow
in the dark".
