Resident Evil 3(1999) Overhaul MOD "The Lord of the Necropolis" is created as a game like "Resident Evil 3 : Director's Cut". Resident Evil continues to evolve and then "Village" will be released soon. This is the project to pursue the origin of "Survival Horror" again in the world of classic Resident Evil. I'm thinking about ResidentEvil-ness. Why did Capcom declare RE's subgenre is not "Action", "Adventure" or "Horror", but "Survival horror". I have understood the original codes of RE3 and add

[Resident Evil 3 (1999) Overhaul Mod] - The Lord of the Necropolis

Version 1.1.2 (November 25th, 2021)

Version 1.1.2 is available. It fixes the following bugs:
1) If Jill gets the Blue Herb in the graveyard hut before the Carlos scenario begins,
the Chronos Chain or Gun Powder C in the clock tower machine room will disappear
2) If you go out through the door next to the warehouse container after Dario's death,
the background will not be displayed correctly when you re-enter the warehouse.
3) The new ending is opened even in Easy Mode.
4) Carlos can use "Time Stop" .


Resident Evil 3(1999) Overhaul MOD "The Lord of the Necropolis" is a major expansion of Classic RE3.
In Ver.1.1.0, the new ending that I gave up implementation in Ver.1.0 due to lack of my technical ability and time is added. Many other changes have been added, such as expansion of police station, a new route after jumping off the cable car, merchants and so on. The game balance has been adjusted so that more Resident Evil fans will be able to enjoy the MOD. The new skill "tackle" and the new shooting objects "generator"and "flour bags" will be very useful in the early stages.
I hope a lot of RE fans can remember the fear and sense of accomplishment when they first played the classic series of Resident Evil.

[note] Route for the new ending [NOT EASY MODE]
1) Defeat Nemesis 6 times or more * Including Boss battle / Carlos Scenario
2) Jump off the cable car
3) Don't leave the railgun
4) Select ??? in the final live selection

For MOD Creators:

Please give credits to me when reusing my works for your MOD. I'm profoundly grateful if you share the link to my ModDB or Youtube. I'll get motivated to create new works.
I want to focus on development, so I'm not accepting technical questions related to MOD creation.
After the MOD update is finished, I plan to release technical information in some way.
