The Dark Times
by Maveritchell


Thanks for trying out "The Dark Times!" This is a more-or-less experimental mod; I wanted to just try out some things I thought would be interesting tweaks to the game and figured that this mod would be a good platform to use.

This mod adds the "Dark Times" era to your instant action list. Several different modes are available in the Dark Times era:
Conquest (all maps)
Hero Assault (Coruscant, Naboo, Mos Eisley)
Duel (Mos Eisley)
Wave (Coruscant, Death Star, Felucia, Hoth, Kamino, Kashyyyk)
Space Assault (Space Corellia, Space Dantooine, Space Nar Shaddaa, Space Raxus Prime)
Team Dogfight (Space Corellia, Space Dantooine, Space Nar Shaddaa, Space Raxus Prime)


Notes on individual modes:

Conquest: Includes random skydomes on outside maps, Random heroes and AI heroes in singleplayer

Hero Assault: New saber combat system - light/heavy attacks, charging force powers

Duel: Hero assault minus force powers

Wave: Objective-based survival mode; enemies come in "waves." All waves SP-only, except Hoth and Kamino

Space Assault: Standard space assault with new space vehicles

Team Dogfight: Team deathmatch with starfighters, includes space heroes/hero vehicles, AI heroes (SP)

Lag is only ever a function of your computer, this mod doesn't affect it.

Perhaps you could elaborate on "horrible heroes," because that by itself doesn't make much sense.

Nothing new? Are you daft and you just missed the long list of new things in the release post?

If the units seem hard to control, that's because you aren't used to them. They are very different (new melee system, also, see above complaint where you posited "nothing new"), but that doesn't mean they are difficult to control.

Those aren't really very well-thought-out complaints.

im sorry.
the lag has stopped now that i have upgraded my system.

by "units are hard to control" i mean that they are kind of slow and the guns are not that good

i didnt really like the heroes because the force powers were kind of lame (and the "charging" was kind of annoying). another thing is that they were confusing. for example i would choose obiwan and have to adapt to a windu attack, aayla secura also has some weird attack. vader cant dash or do his "null" attack and basically the most fun elements of each of the heroes was taken away.

ive been playing the mod a lot more recently and ive gotten used to it. All-in-all i actually liked having some new heroes/units once i got the hang of them.

Great Job with the mod although i still think that there are some annoying elements in it such as speed of units, hero attacks/forces and etc.

Anyways im sorry if my original post was too vague and i could see how you could get insulted by it so heres my explanation/apology.

All of the heroes are supposed to be different - and that shouldn't be an indictment against them simply because they're not what you're used to. I suggest you read the "NewSabersystem.rtf" document in "Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\addon\BDT\DarkTimesdocs"

Before I download this... does it add files or replaces them?

Maveritchell Jan 24 2010 replied:

This adds files. It does optionally replace some of your original config files, to update the game to the unofficial 1.3 patch (a requirement for this mod). The unofficial 1.3 patch does not break any compatibility, online, offline, mods, or otherwise.

I hd a question, would this mod work along with the conversion pack just fine if these are the only two mods i would use for the game?

Maveritchell Mar 13 2010 replied:

Sure. There are no compatibility issues with the two.

There is a fixed limit to the number of missions (scripts) the game can load, but the Conversion Pack and Dark Times by themselves don't exceed that (the Conversion Pack takes a little over 50% of the limit, but Dark Times adds less than another 10%).

great mod i espescialy liked the hero ships in dogfight although it is a bit hard to tell the difference between biggs x-wing and the normal one so maybe in a update you should add some lines on the sides like the ones on his helmet in a new hope

Mace-Windu Aug 30 2011 says:

could this be because i have another mod installed? because iv got the unofficial patch 1.3 and Conversion pack. because there are no ther things i can think of that would make the game think one of this mods files are corrupted
