1.1 CHANGELOG

General fixes:

Below the Storm:
- Modified jump-on-train scripting for easier access.

- Player is moved to a safe location after transitioning to the next level while on the train, preventing the player from getting stuck.

Rising Up:
- Simplified the complex scripting of the garages slowly opening door, it should no longer cause any crashing.

- Tweaked balancing of MG-fight in garage.

Prototype:

Seems to me that these modifications only really serve to reduce the overall difficulty and level of neccessary skills to play it normally. I think it's a shame that so often modders of really fine work have to release a second reworked " lite " version for people who just want to walk through the mod as compared to working their way through. I can honestly understand why, but challenge is a primary element of playing.

Speaking only for myself, I enjoyed a comfortable and quite enjoyable level of challenge playing on hard ( with no bugs ) and had plenty of time to appreciate the work you put into. Continued success to you Precursor Team !

I think the issue, (at least for me) was that if you had spent certain weapons you couldn't do the final fight.

I made it through the game and figured out every puzzle in the first version. Looks like that makes me a better player then the ones requesting the easier difficulty :D

I thought the alt tab thing was a joke.. lol.. But it was unintentional as it seems.. Great mod! Just the right amount of length IMHP. Looking forward to the sequel! (If there is)
