The Darkness is a mod designed to put the players into a much more difficult position than that of the original Alien Swarm, by removing a lot of lighting, as well as adding support for 8 player cooperative games, both Online and Offline with bot support. Aliens burn in the light from flares, medpacks and buff mines, ala Pitch Black (Riddick), and of course the Bloodhound transport lights also have the same effect. The end goal is create a seperate version of Alien Swarm for the Riddick's among us. Enjoy! Development is in progress, and a working BETA is available.
Swarm Tactics 0.5 and The Darkness 0.5 Released!
Posted by ElementAlien on Sep 23rd, 2010
After a whole lot of work, may I present for download Swarm Tactics 0.5 which includes The Darkness 0.5.
No longer is it impossible for player vs player in alien swarm.
The rules are simple. You get 5 points each for player kills till the max is reached for the game mode.
TDM Max = 300 points to win for a team
Tactics Max = 200 points to win for a team
It can be changed to a different value by server or if cheats are set to on as well.
I plan to make it possible to change that later via the menu.
Swarm Tactics 0.5 includes:
Swarm Tactics 2v2v2v2
The Darkness 0.5 includes
Darkness Team Deathmatch
Darkness Tactics 2v2v2v2
3 maps + 2 of my own vmf type maps for you to play with. Those two arent quite finished yet.
Note that you need to select the gamemode within the actual lobby itself, after you select the correct campaign for the gamemode you want.
