seriously, theres barely any good Horror-Mods, and there should be. this, in short, is a group for all the gamers who feel left out of the mod-playing communities just because its hard to make or find something scary. If you think there should be more horror mods out there, or just Love horror mods, feel free to join :D
Guys from Frictional Forum completely solved flashlight problem. If previous one legendary, this one now is EPIC!

It's been a while since last update. After La Caza release, and after playing it, I've decided that a full conversion release would be much more appropriate for this mod. Actually, the idea first nested in my mind from Mkilbride's suggestion, so credits goes to him.
Well, you know what a total conversion means, but what it means for Amnesia mods? It means custom pre_menu, custom menu background... anything custom with same FPS style, physic interaction. All other can be much more different. However... please don't expect a completely new game from a one man team :)
Here's the menu custom background:
I said this is a work in progress, didn't I? Here you go! I've removed night vision so you will need flashlight to see in darkness.
HD Flashlight model: DIGIByte (from Frictional Games forum)
Hand Animations: MrBigzy (from Frictional Games forum)
File Editing and structure: Xiphirx (from Frictional Games forum)
Now that this mod is going to be a total conversion, I've thought about it's storytelling twice. Is it really worth to put so much work on story-telling and symbolism that nearly nobody will care for? From most of my personal conversations, it's a good horror what people expect from me. This is not a horror mod. It's scary, it'll have it's scares, whole atmosphere will screw your mind, but this is not a horror mod. More like a thriller. Or should I say, between or both horror and thriller.
I've decided to tune down the symbolism and story-telling aspects. It'll be easier to follow the story. I'll rather work on creating an intense and spooky atmosphere.
I've thought about releasing a demo and talked about it to one of my friends helping me about this mod. He said it'd be good. Not the one I sent the people to get their criticism and feedback though, but a new level that nobody has seen yet. What do you think about it?
