3D Space RTS fan. Searching for life outside the homeworld :)
Well, it can be seen that author had done a lot of efforts of bringing tonns of details to mod. It's very nostalgic for AvP fanboys.
But. Behind these small details you can find only unoptimized and poorly done levels even below AvP2000 expectation; and the major thing - it lacks gamedesign. If you've played AvP series, then you'd expect something of a Thief, Riddick, Dark Messiah and other stealth games gameplay of plan-first-act-second. But you find only little modification of original Doom3 mechanics, with it's pretty-straight-forward AI, with shoot-first-think-second action, with those tonns of things not working as they should have.
So, in the end we get a lot of Nostalgy, a little of Game. The mod requires heavy polishing.
I'd advice author to take a look at The Dark Mod - D3 'thief' mod that became stand-alone quite time already. Take, use it's community help, and throw out everything that relates to lockpicking etc, and leave hiding, AI etc. I believe, it would ease life a lot.
Second, I'd recommend to dive in to details, because the devil hides there. Don't just add things, make them work as they should.
To conclude, this project looks promising but only after several iterations. In the end, it could be something that The Dark Mod has become for Thief-fans.
System Shock 2 has been reborn in this mod, like the main hero of the game did. I advice you to play it if you like SS2 and Bioshock series.
This mod broke original Q4 installation with it's own .exe, so you can't launch mods, only this one.
Only they could have implemented hero's improvement in SoulStorm, that would make game more optional, and modding possible. Mb, Dota? )
No doubts, that this kind of pack is needed - like the AvP redux.
But it's a pity that it's made so slowly (((
I like when old games get reborn. Especially, the game like this.
