The Darkest Day EXTRA QUEST in production

Yeh, yer old editing pal Ajoc is making a cool new (major?) quest for TDD...i will not CHANGE a kit, item and so on which is already in TDD, but i will add several new ones.

Mainly because the last guy (look down a bit) got crucified for stealing items and Deano's MiniMOD (what a tard).

I have permission from my good friends Minto and Max, as they have both declared that they will not be adding to TDD and have moved on to bigger things (Check out Tower of Iron Will and soon what Po is working on), and I need the practise on areas and so forth before I aspire to their dizzy heights, so heres the deal:

A new quest
New Items
New enemies
Probably new spells but I havent made any yet
etc. etc.

I already have 5 new areas running soundly, and a few cutscenes and sotryline is all set up (don't expect anything earth shattering!).

I do have screen shots but I can't be bothered to post them right now, I think Dean plans to do something on TEAMBG.ORG when his real news (lol) runs dry.

I am basically working on this on my own, and have been for a couple of months, and it's picking up speed due to a person I found to make cool new area graphics and a bit of basic help (not sure if i needed it but hey) from my cousin, Grand-Pas.

Also, please reply if you have a request for a balanced ite you would like to see in the game, cos my graphics gy send me an area with about 1000 barrels in and I need to fill them up somehow! And my imagination reaches limits after a few hours.

As for extra playing time, expect a few hours, no more...I am basically makithing this until I get bored with it or I feel it's really well done. There will also be a few mini-quests within mine, like fetching squirrels and picking apples (lol) and pointless things that you guys enjoy-so-much.

Anyway, this must be the longest non-copy-and-pasted post of my life, so I think I'll stop =)

SO far, I have about half an hour added, with a cool into, 5 substantial NEW areas are in (plus a few events to get the quest started in Athkatla)...several people have actually played it already (what i've done) and they liked it...

PLLEEASSE REPPLLYY WITTHH ANNYY TTTHOOUUGGHT VVAAGGUEELLY RREELLEVAANT!

just by curiosity, how long have you been making your MOD?

Don't worry, I wasnt expecting anyone here to actually the read the whole post, which is why I put the important info in the title.

Any other questions?

Since I didnt read everything either ( ), when is it going to be ready? Sounds great to me . Other question is will we be able to play extra parts from saved game or will we need to start over (which would be a pain in the ass...)?

ok, all you will need to do is visit the crooked crane inn (gate district) and a nice chap upstairs will send you off on the quest.

As for when it's done, no idea, maybe mid january? I am away for the christmas hols, but I am working onit on and off solidly.

As for items, i have only added a few, they are really icing on the cake but here's some examples....

(i have tried to stay balanced)
(all from memory)

Bracers of Timestopping
I think these improve a saving throw or AC a little, and allow timestop for 5 secs 1 per day
For all

Amulet of improved theivery
Pretty poor amulet, +10% to find traps and "knock" spell one per day.
for theives

I couldnt remember this one so i openned it up..
Oak Hammer +4

Damage:  1D4 + 5
Special: ID4 Crushing damage upon wielder upon hit.
+1 to THAC0 for 3 seconds upon hit.
Damage type:  Crushing
Weight: 14
Speed Factor: 4
Proficiency Type: War Hammer
Type:  1-handed
Requires: 11 Strength
Not Usable By:
Druid
Mage
Thief

Nice Hammer, 7-13 damage with more chances to hit every time you hit.
If you have a balanced spell or item, feel free to post it and i may include it, as i mentionned above

First, I was not crucified, just flamed. Second I plan on fixing it if possible. Third I had permission from every item/spell/etc creator that made some of the items in my mod except for Deano's Freedom's reign. But if you wish I can help you with your mod as modding is one of my hobbies.

well what can you help with? I am pretty self sufficicient, i can do area graphics, areas, scripts, BAMS, ITMs, SPLs, and other file types you have probably never heard of..hehe

I can send what i have done so far, as long as you dont steal it (joke)...

it's 20mb unzipped, 8mb zipped and is in IAP form, so you just import it over your TDD.

I am quite good with items, spells, etc and where do I go to get your mod so far (I only have a 4MB account so far until I can convince my parents to get me a bigger one). I wont steal your mod (i didn't mean to use FR but lets not start that again).

well i suggest you get on icq or TeamB IRC channel for file transfers...

This is a serious add on, not just modifying existing items and adding a few here and there...

If you wish to submit new items, thats fine by me, cos the bore me to death as i have been making them for around three years now!

Ideas run dry hehe

So send me IAPS with items if you want, and I will credit you. Original items only though...

I am trying to stay as solo as possible, cos teams are just rouble.

I will not be eiditng kits, npcs and so forth, the only annoying thing that will have to be added are worldmap entries.

well look at it this way. I'm doing you a favour, the is no reason for me to end you this, so I am not going to go miles out of my way.

Find on TeamBG IRC, or add 6478164 to your ICQ list if you get it.
