[MOD] Descent Into Darkness 2

Postby Awesome Warlord » Sun May 24, 2015 4:31 pm


They destroyed your home. They killed your family. You are not a violent captain by nature, but now you seek revenge. Do whatever it takes to stop the rebel fleet!

(click to see full hangar view)

Descent into Darkness is a complete overhaul modification for FTL.
You do not start with a single ship loadout and play the game regularly.
Instead, you are given a choice between barebone ship hulls and pick your starting gear, crew, augments, everything.
There are 72 possible starting combinations - 4x more than the number of default ships in vanilla FTL!

Along with this unique change to the game mechanics, there are many, many graphical changes - from the loading screen to the main menu, the hangar, star map...

Naturally, this mod comes with unique weapons with some rather special animations.

Goes without saying that all of the stuff like gibs, room images, cloak graphic etc etc is all done, of course.

Mod compatibility:
This mod is not intended to be compatible with a lot of other things.
Anything with events is probably out of the question.
Background system/planet images should be ok.
Weapon graphic mods might work. Other stuff probably won't.
If you insist on running it alongisde other mods, make SURE you load this LAST in the list! Any part of this mod's content being overwritten will likely mess up the whole thing.

Waste your time leaving comments about balance or lack thereof. I do care.

If it doesn't work for you then try reinstalling your FTL (check that it's the latest version), SSMM etc. DryEagle has tested this on several computers, He claims it works.

I find it quite flattering that you guys would go to the effort to update this when it's so old and all that.
So, just to add in my 2 cents:
I am prefectly fine with you guys fiddling about with it and trying to update it, so long as:
a) it's kept clear that I made the original mod (i.e. dont go posting it in a separate thread as a new mod)
b) it's kept clear that I had nothing to do with the AE stuff (pretty obvious)
That said, I am entirely done with FTL so don't expect me to do anything else with it. Haven't even played AE to be honest.

DryEagle stated that he does not want this mod to be re-posted in a separate thread, which you did here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=27343
You are acting against the explicit will of the original author, and re-posting his mod like that could ultimately be perceived as you stealing other peoples work. I recommend you delete that thread.

BTW if you could help me merge the files i would love that

The file you posted is the exact same mod as the original decent into darkness, you don't even give credit to DryEagle in the thread. You are deliberately appropriating a mod made by someone else and this is not ok. [Thread locked]
