Looks very cool...

but it seems to rely on specific hardware..... so you may be restricted by which PCs will run these mods..

My nephew ( and I encourage and pump him a lot ) is a DOOM nerd...

We already run all possible mods for modern doom in which light bumps and shade maps looks really cool.
Almost like these . but ... they do not require any particular hardware....
A good PC  should be enough.. even iGPUs can do them

Get yourself if not already a good engine like https://zdoom.org/downloads (or ZANDRONUM)

Search the best maps to suit your prefs.. like COD  (Call of Duty) weapon arsenal
AltBrightmaps for Doom1 and 2  + brightmaps and lights doubleDHTP
and HIGH RESOLUTION textures and maps..

There is already a good old Quake high resolution equivalent..

You will have even better results than above.. in cheap hardware..

The kid loves them.. total doom nerd

Nothing compares to AlisBrutalDoom Sgt MarkiV mods...  absolute outstanding ..
(alternative Brutalv21is also a good check)

Impossible to take the kid from ComicBlood level  >:D >:D >:D
