Acheron currently aims to successfully replace the EU handheld weaponry and vehicles by that of the US Colonial Marine Corps. The first stage of the development is completed by 37%. You check the progress on the spreadsheet to get some idea of when the first release might come.

Acheron

Development team

  • Frosty98B - modeller, basic-texture artist
  • General_Bradly - vehicle exporter
  • Anthony817 - universal champ
  • TUERIX - weapon exporter, animator
  • Kiborg_UA - weapon exporter, animator
  • NinjaTheCat - sound and music designer
  • Pe†eR-KuN - improved-texture artist
  • We're looking for a voice actor for Colonial Marines' voice messages

Possible future goals include

  • 'Xenomorph' faction
  • Playable Alien Queen
  • Playable Xenomorph Drone and Warrior
  • Map(s) taking place in the Hadley's Hope complex

We'd love to include these among the features of the version that's currently being developed but we'd like not to make the mod too ambitious.

If you have any ideas/suggestions about the mod, please, feel free to let us know. Any help is much much appreciated. You can either contact us here or over at Acheron's Discord server, everyone's welcome to join!


Please, track the mod for future updates to make sure you're not gonna miss anything.

Due to the impossibility of accessing unlockable items without the master server, we've realised that the original idea of having just one basic class with unlockable weapons and items couldn't work.

Instead, we've agreed on keeping the original four classes (but swapping the engineer for a medic).
The images below illustrate what each class will use (also notice the progress bars on the right).

(*the recon's day night goggles could later be a part of a new soldier model but until then won't have any standalone model)

The last item of each class is only usable by a squad leader.

The medical and ammo supplies will be throwable items with only a limited resupplying/healing capability. The medical hub and the welding torch will provide an unlimited healing/repairing. Vehicles will be the source of unlimited ammo resupply, so keeping them safe will be important.

Lastly, the assault's techinician kit and recon's heat sink won't do anything directly. The techinician kit will be more of physical representation of the assault's ability to open some gates (that the other classes won't be able to) in the later updates while the heat sink should be more of a representation of the recon's invisibility on the thermal vision. Or at least, that's the plan right now.

Thank You for tracking Acheron! We're sorry for not bringing You news so rarely but many of us are busy with real life stuff at the moment. Hopefully, we'll be able to focus on the mod a bit more soon.

Nah I haven't personally tried it, I was just wondering, as i have used the AIX version. Anyway yours is probably better and more detailed.

Well, the last time I asked AIX dev for a permission to use their weapon, I got no reply. Plus, their pulse rifle isn't very detailed as it's just an easter egg.

And after all, using the most iconic USCM weapon from other mod instead of making our own one would really take away some originality.

Oh, thank You so much! I guess we'll have to return the favour to You with a first release that's actually good. ;D
