Sup all.... first off, I just compleated BioShock and would like to say GREAT GAME
Now... I would like to see some mod tools released so some hard-core modders can remake System Shock 2 (possibly the greatest game in the world). For the people who have played it; im sure you can see there are similarities between the two games.
As System Shock was such a great game it would be a shame to see it fall into digital oblivion.
Come on... you know im right...
Anyway, what do you think?
I'd love it. At some point in time i'll be getting the PC version, so I wouldn't mind some great mods to go with it.
Though I really don't do much modding to games (creating new levels, altering existing levels, etc.), I LOVED SS2 and this could be really cool.
Wow, UE 3.0 + SS2. *dreams up the possibilities*
Not to mention all the inevitable co-op mods and of course fan made plasmids, levels, etc.
The SDK tools will probably be released when Unreal Tournament 3 hits the stores, I think Epic said once that they want to release the tools with their flagship game.
Mod tools would be great, indeed.
However, I doubt a SS2 remake would near completion before EA shuts it down. They still own that title and I doubt they'd like some modders remaking it without their approval. And that approval probably won't be given. At least not for free.
If it were to be made, it'd have to be known on an underground style basis. Information on it could never be posted here for already mentioned reasons.
I would like...
MULTIPLAYER (please SDK please!) 2 Modes:
Splicer Wars- Team or death match, you pick 2 plasmids and 2 weapons (you can change at each re-spawn) and duke it out. Maybe make it where you have to scrounge for resources, the team/splicer who has scavanged the most stuff from bodies arround the level wins.
Splicers VS Big Daddy- You can choose between being a rosie or a bouncer. One person is randomly assigned to be the big daddy, who protects an invincible little sister. Splicer can win in 2 ways, by harvesting the LS (which takes time, so as long as the big daddy is arround it would be easy for him to interrupt the process) or by killing the BD. The splicer who kills the BD becomes the next BD. Points are given every 10 seconds you are the BD, the person with the most points at the end of the round wins.
I realize people say they dont want "just another multiplayer game" when we have so many. But NO multiplayer game has the fantastic combat mechanics that bioshock has IMHO.
An SDK would be wonderful news. Still I don't think that an SDK is enough to mod the game into having a multiplayer mod (judging from my experience and the effort done for the MTA).
For me it would be great though if the SDK allowed to mess with the enemy AI, make them more cooperative and/or more antagonistic to the player (such as being able to also gather items scattered, use med-kits in addition to medical stations, try to destroy vita-chambers once they realise that the player uses them to regenerate etc).
