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 don't think some files were downloaded when you downloaded them, but i think you can fix it. Your not suppose to do this to get flashlight for the mod working, but you can try copying penumbraFlashLight and DigiByteFlashLight folders from custom_stories/thewill/models/hand_object/lantern to the main models folder in your main amnesia root into amnesia the dark descent/models/hand_object/lantern and copy them in there.

Then go back to will mod go back into models then player then hands then copy flashlightanimations folder into main models folder then player/hands then there, also if there are any files in thewill models folder that aren't in the main one copy those files into the main models folder in the right places too.

Then go to thewill then entities/item then copy those 2 folders into main amnesia entities folder then item folder then you should be good to go.

Btw, please awnser back here to me to say if the freetorch, pews or the table lamp are working or not because if they are thats good and the flashlight should work, if not then i will try to figure out whats happening :)
