Hello and welcome to the very first news of Aurora Effect. In this news I will give you a brief summary of the major features of this mod and show the very first visuals.
To begin with the major features :
- This mod uses the Arrangement code (see here for the Arrangement mod).
This means a whole lot of new graphical features are in such as the glowing lights you'll be able to see in the screenshots of this news. However the changes, fixes and additions are enormous, so you will discover them in other news posts when they are used.
- Extremely detailed environments (as much as I can get from the engine without crashing it) and multiple paths to get to an objective.
- The player will have to go to Xen, other locations may be featured.
There's probably a lot of things I forgot to talk about, but in my opinion, it's better when it comes with pictures or videos, doesn't it ? For this news, it will be pictures of a corridor the player will go through in the Chapter 1 (pre-disaster). There is still some improvements to be made, especially missing decals, but it's close to what you will find ingame.
Please tell me what you think, what you would like to see, and track the mod to show your support !
See you next time !
