    Phoronix: An Open-Source Doom 3 Engine Is Looking To Implement Vulkan Support

    While the open-source Doom 3 community hasn't been too vibrant since id Tech had open-sourced the Doom 3 code (id Tech 4) back in 2011, one of the more vibrant open-source D3 projects is looking at adding Vulkan renderer support to the engine...

      Screw doom 3. We want RAGE engine on linux with vulkan. I bet it will run 2x faster with a good set of drivers!

        Who the hell wants to benchmark using 11 (!) years old engine which is only capable of rendering closed environments?

          I liked the game, you can play it with wine. It won't run 2x faster because it has an adaptive loading technology for texture loading that keeps the fps at 60. You can only tast how good your pc is at unpacking/decompressing the textures, unfortunatly it's accelerated only with cuda, so Intel and Amd harware do have bad performance, also true on Windows.

              It's not a 11years old engine.
              Doom 3 BFG has many parts of Rage and is quite modern.

                Rage got a lot of criticism, much of it justified. But hell, I had a heck of a lot of fun with that game. After I finished it I made the mistake of playing Halo Reach right after, the mechanics were like night and day. Rage is silky smooth, and had movement that just felt right. Going back to Halo afterwards (which I had been a fan of) felt like playing in quicksand.

                The end of Rage was awful though.

                  Doom 3 BFG is not 11 old. While it looks very similar to 2004 Doom 3, the engine is completely changed under the hood.

                    Nice to see.. And as far as Rage goes, I'd love to see it ported to Linux. Played it back when I was gaming on Windows and it was one of the last FPS' I enjoyed n completed. Unfortunately the guy who did all the Linux ports left id software around the time the game was made and Carmack had become quite negative about Linux gaming... They've both left now, so I don't see native Linux support coming back to id games any time soon.
