So some of the main things I am working one, some done but need testing:

A slow health and EVE regen. Possible removal of EVE Hypos so you have
to wait for your body to produce enough energy to use Plasmids.

Reduced carrying capacity for Health Packs and Hypos. 3 Packs and 5 Hypos.

Health Packs always give you full health and removal of Health Pack improvement Tonics.

Free items when you hack but hacks are going to be very difficult without a few quick saves and loads.

All weapons have increased damage and bigger ammo capacities except the wrench, which now sucks.

You can find more stuff when searching and I also have really changed
up the searching system. Now you can find small amounts of ADAM and
sometimes EVE Hypos on Houdini Splicer bodies Usually around 20 ADAM.
Little sisters give you between 1000 and 3000 ADAM per harvest, halved
for rescue. Big Daddies give you between 100 and 300 bucks. Most
Plasmid and Tonic costs have been doubled.

New plasmids! Yes, you can get Life Drain and Teleportation now, also
maybe Telekinesis Two and Organic Pockets (I've never got it before but
correct me if its already in-game please.

Big Daddies and Fontaine are way more badass and have about double their old health.

Grenade Boxes now have a 50% chance of giving you between 1 and 3 Health Packs. Something for you nade box haters

And something that is probs beyond my ability with BioShocks very
limited modding resources: all Big Daddies are the original bouncer as
he looks and fights way cooler than those lame Rosie's.

Now I know some things may seem pretty bad for gameplay right now, but
just wait and see how the Alpha turns out before condemning it to ****
land. Also, I WILL take requests to an extent, but any flamers can
leave now, don't even bother posting.

The mod is on hold indefinitely (or dead, if you prefer) until such time as we can get people who know how to break the coding and basically force the game to accept the changes as we would like them to implement for the game... including adding the extra's that are currently only available on the console versions of the game.
maybe someday we can do that...
if you know someone who can help us out with this we could start this mod back up (bring it back from the dead) and hopefully make the game better for PC users, like it should have been according to our thinking.

The beta version of this mod, may be full of bugs, so don't expect perfection, lest you end up like Stienman

Oh and I think this removed the bind to Run/walk because I'm moving slow as f*

Whoa, whoa whoa. Slow down a bit. Lets start from the top. The binds will probably be reset to defaults once. 2 shots to drain your EVE isn't something I put in, are you playing on hard? If so, that still shouldn't happen. Back up the files because you need to edit their names, and you cannot change them back, so keep a copy in case. Sounds like you installed this mod wrong, although I don't blame you, it took me three tries to get it right on my new PC. Two questions I must ask: are you using any other mods? and are you CERTAIN its installed correctly?

Well, yeah. I used the balanced mod once before and those had all the functions working (Too bad I freakin' hate that mod).

So what I do is open Contents\system and extract all the files to there (As you put it in ofcourse, so that would be all the .ini etc. files in the zip, not the folders themselves) That's how to do it right?

Oh and the walk/run key option isn't in options anymore but it used to be...
I'm not using any other mods.

Feel free to remove/merge those comments down there.

A question, what does the balance mod do? Make your plasmids use half your EVE in one shot perhaps? If not, it may be a case of conflicting mods. Did you fully un-install it?

P.S. Thanks for being so patient. I know it is a clearly labelled beta, but most people these days try it for 10 seconds and then say it sucks... if they say anything at all.

Well it makes the game a damn load lot harder that's for sure, and incre-hedibly unrealistic! But yeah it did drain EVE in 2 (maybe even 1)

I uninstalled the mod succesfully so that is not the problem. (Just nuked the entire system folder and replaced it with backup)

I don't know.
How do I change the regeneration speed so maybe I can see what's causing the problem or if it's even active?

I'm using Bioshock 1.1 btw.

EVE and/or Health regen aren't in yet... Thats a feature I want, but Bioshock is pretty much impossible to mod, so they aren't working yet. To see if my mod is active, go to the first Gatherers Garden and look for the "Organic Pockets" tonic. If its there, congrats, its working.

Well, it's working.

Too bad about the regen though, you coulda stated that before. The only reason I really got this mod.

I don't think those cheap bastards'll ever release an SDK...

I did state it :)

I said "things I want" not "things I have done". yes, there'll never be an SDK, but maybe I'll find a work around.

Well, Smod: Tactical did it for Half-life 2 ... or... smod... but still the possibility is there that there's some way to do it for Bioshock. It's still on the UT3 TribesV engine ain't it? Should be SOMETHING there.

Well I can hope, but Half Life is designed to be modded... Modding Bioshock is like trying to ride a mule.

So what? Make a video of the altered gameplay or nobody will ever see this or play it...

I'll see if I can play it but my bioshock crapped out.
Don't really care though, system shock is so much better.

I might eventually. The problem is, my Fraps only works when it wants to. Besides, its the Beta, I only put it up here for the testers to download. If the full version ever comes out I'll make sure it has all the pictures and ****.

That should do it, as long as no asshat decides to vote '1' before the actual release.

I just got my backup copy from the store so I'll try it out.

If they do, then I guess I deserve it for making the BETA public, but I wanted everyone to have some fun with it, as the final version is still a ways away.

I hope you have fun with it :)
