This is now a thread where I post development updates. Fweeee.
Hello, and welcome to the next phase of the Dark Injection. Here, you will find new experiences, parts, and other things beyond your wildest dreams.
A small fragment of this mod is available on the main Dark Injection thread, and the whole package will be entering open beta soon. If you have any "help" questions, please look at the FAQ, and ask for help only if your question is not answered there, if the answer provided does not work, or if you are unable to execute the answer provided. If you have any non-"help" questions, the FAQ may or may not answer them. If you are not satisfied with the answer provided, feel free to ask for more information, and (if at all possible) I will be happy to answer. I am aware that occasionally you may miss a point while reading the FAQ, and in the event that you do, don't worry. Everyone makes mistakes. I'll just point you to the answer in the FAQ, and then we'll be fine, unless you want more information, in which case I'd be happy to clarify if possible, as previously stated. If you want to help with the update, or you'd like to suggest a feature or report a bug, please do so on this thread.
My old, partially outdated rant on why this update is happening:
THE MINI-RELEASE IS OUT!! Requires DI 9 or earlier. Get it here:DOWNLOAD
EDIT: Forgot to credit Camßεn for the idea behind this mini-release. Woops
A "YOU GET TO TRY SOME STUFF" UPDATE:
There will be a small mini-release very soon, as soon as my computer is up and running again.
A "NEW STUFF" UPDATE:
The only unused model I've found in Darkspore's files.
Beta Skar's weapons!
Gravity Mage's head and Binary Star Shaman's Staff!
Full credit to Camßεn for this idea, I just went and spent around three hours making it happen xD
I finally fixed the Adjustable Guard and Obsidian Deflector, which have been broken for as long as I can remember, possibly since the beginning!
I don't know why, but these took me 15 Hours to create. Regardless, there you have it: Beta Zrin's Right Shoulder Pad thingy!
ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT UPDATE:
After 3 years of absence, the stretchable bones from v3 make their triumphant return. See for yourself:
A DEVELOPMENT UPDATE:
I think I've fixed the camera bugs, but I'll need a few Steam users to test the fix and help me confirm that. Also, the new UI I've been working on is coming along! Here, have some screenshots:
But for those of you who like Davo's UI, that will be an option too!
YET ANOTHER UPDATE:
This is now a loose collaboration. Davo's back on the project!
There's a FAQ now: http://www.davoonline.com/phpBB3/viewto ... =26&t=5328
UPDATE (disregard this, only present for sake of completeness):
Would you like to help make this update happen? Do you want to see a release faster? WELL NOW YOU CAN!!! Here's how:
If you don't know a thing about modding and don't own Darkspore but want to help speed up the process even so:
There is a way you can do that! You might not think so, but one of the hardest parts of this is locating the parts that need fixing in the first place! You can help with this, by...well, slapping parts on a creature, and PMing me a list of the ones that have broken textures (e.g. muddy colouring, peculiar layer mapping, etc), either by part name, or prop.xml name. For clearest view of the layer mapping, I recommend the following colours: Base = Bright Yellow, Coat = Bright Red, Detail = Royal Blue .
If you don't know a thing about modding but own Darkspore and want to help speed up the process even so:
If you have unlocked a large number of Biogenetic heroes and you have apocalypse weapons for those heroes, you can help by providing screenshots of those heroes with those weapons equipped.
