Hey everyone, 3RDplayer here!

The second fanmission for the original System Shock in 24 years arrived and features brand new guns with all new sounds, sprites, interface art, names and properties! But not only that: Ruby Station is a full playable singleplayer level with new voicecovers, updated and more detailed original textures and more! You will be able to try out and learn about the new weapons as the level goes on, while fighting off mutant clones and cyborg replicants let loose on the station. And if you like the weapons you will be able to use the separate MOD pack included in the download, to use all of them while playing through the original System Shock! Enabled via the mod support of Nightdive Studios System Shock Enhanced Edition (Source Port).

The Features
Most of the work on Ruby Station went into creating new spriteart for existing weapons, textures, crates, posters, icons, the userinterface etc. A big chunk of original textures got redrawn and added more details to give them a more modern look and be on par with the high resolution the Sourceport provides. Each weapon required up to 5 sprites that had to be changed and redrawn to fit the new look the mod wants to establish. I do hope that whoever plays the fanmission or uses the weapons will enjoy the new art as much as I enjoyed making it.

RUBY STATION FEATURES:
- a singleplayer level
- new user interface
- 14 new guns, sprites and sounds
- new voiceovers
- new textures

The Fanmission
Unlike the first fanmission System Shock ReWired, the Ruby Station fanmission is just an addition to introduce the new weapons and their advantages and disadvantages to the player. It's a single level in which you take over the role of a UNN Soldier being send to Ruby Station to test some new weapons authorised by the UNN. While she follows her orders, an incident occurs and she sees herself surrounded by clones and replicas of monsters from Citadel Station. UNN was nice enough to clone the horrors created by SHODAN to use as test dummies for new recruits. Nice, huh?

Standalone Weapon Mod
The main star of Ruby Station is the gameplay mod, which changes the original weapons of System Shock. Old-time players that already finished the original game many times can now play through it again with a completely different set of weapons. For example. The handguns now use anti-personnel OR armor-piercing bullets and have different rates of fire. The Magpulse is now a Plasma Rifle ala Doom. The useless Riot Gun is now a powerful shotgun. Among other things!

Thank you for playing! You are awesome!

Awesome!
In all honesty a lot of the original Guns were pretty useless (don't even get me started on the Riot Gun).

Thank you for making this! 😸
