This custom story came about while I was working on my other custom story (which is discontinued). This is the first chapter of hopefully many. Read More...

Tons of custom stories for Amnesia: The Dark Descent were published on Desura during last months, and with the current trend of huge amounts of new custom stories added daily to ModDB & IndieDB, many more may be released in coming days, thanks to developers & mappers of Amnesia user-made stories.

Info for developers

What do you need to do to see your custom story on Desura?

Your custom story can be published only if
1) its releases (downloads) are added to ModDB/IndieDB
2) its release date is set to released (only released CSs are on Desura)
3) it installs to custom_stories folder or installs to its own single folder (like isolated conversions such as Parasomnia or Deterioration)

Also you can ensure that your mod profile
1) has some news articles added
2) has at least 7 screenshots uploaded to the Images section
3) promotional media (screenshots, videos) are of high quality & resolution e.g. in-game screenshots instead of editor screenshots
(otherwise your CS won't be shown on the main page of Desura and it may get less attention than it deserves)

"Complex" custom stories (total conversions) that install directly to the main Amnesia game directory could be also published on Desura but at the moment it's strongly unrecommended and a little discouraged due to many possible user problems with installing & uninstalling such stories through Desura (and without Desura).

It's simply easiest and best practice to have your mods install to their own folders without copying anything to original game folders or overwriting anything from the main game folders. Most modders and mods on ModDB do that unless specific game engine disallows hardcore modifications or total conversions. Parasomnia and Deterioration are examples that prove that Amnesia is highly moddable and isolated total conversions installing to their own folders are definitely possible.

Your custom story will be automatically published by Desura staff if your mod meets the first set of requirements detailed above - it has 1) download added to ModDB/IndieDB 2) it's released 3) installs in a simple way.

Thanks for reading, and best luck to all of you & all your projects!

I have to agree with Meki. This mod has far too many bugs for you to claim you tested it thoroughly if at all. Those overlapping textures and glitches are part of what can make or break a game. Especially when you have glitches that directly affect gameplay. So you can either take this constructive criticism and learn from it or you might as well continue being stubborn, sulking away calling everyone trying to help you improve every name in the book as your mods suffer the outcome.

Your review was fail mate, saying I didn't test this custom story is extremely stupid, i may of tested 100 times, it's not my fault you cannot open hatch, (I do admit it is hard). Learn to play a map for what it is, not for petty overlapping textures and "gamebreaking" glitches that only take patience, sorry mate but that is a flawed review.

The internet can be rough. so tell to them.
That you are an beginner with level designing and scripting and story making.
Another tip, Use beta testers.
People said the game was bad.
So why did you not update it?
You shouldn't complain about it, Because you do notting about it :/
