AvP2 2007 Complete texture overhaul (1.1 Fixed)
Aliens vs. Predator 2 2007 (complete texture overhaul) Version 1.1 by dex909

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This mod is a graphical enhancement to the game in the way it should actually look like (my opinion of course). More movielike, less comic. Basically I wanted to change the overall looks and feel of the game to be more realistic, dark and detailed. This is a step away from the colourful comic-look and changes various things. All flags for every modified dtx texture have been checked, compared with each original dxt and set by hand in Dedit as there is no other way to retain the original settings for fullbright, sounds on impact or each detailtexture right. No bugs with textures so far.



For more screenshots and animated gifs for comparison go to my thread at:

All stuff I did, is of course freely available to everyone for further modification. Feel free to take it apart, use textures from it in your mod or the modified dll - just CREDIT me with "dex909" in your readme or whatever and you can include any of my work in your mods. I am not responsible for any stupid/senseless/cheat/garbage mods anyone creates using this, though. If you want to use the modified high res weapon skins you will still have to ask Yaji. Have fun!



I combined some textures from Yaji's High Resolution Weapons and his higher resolution Aliens as well as several graphics and sounds from AJL and did a full overhaul. I did not simply copy and paste them, though. All of Yaji's skins as well as the original game's worldtextures, skins, characters etc. have been reworked to make them look less "saturated" and less "comiclike". I used a "fake" bumpmapping effect over every texture to gain a bit more depth and basically make it appear more realistic. I did not change any things that were perfect in first place, or game mechanics like weaponstats etc. are all original. The motion tracker from AJL has been tweaked a bit (rotation was a bit rough), the HUD colours for human weapons (ammon counter digits) and the Predator energy display were changed to red to make it a bit more movielike. I tweaked some inventory-graphics from the predator to match the new (darker) weapon skins and altered some menu-graphics slightly. The saturation of the marine weapon in the loading screen has been slightly altered to look more realistic and the marine menu skin is now darker. Everything is true to the original "Aliens" and "Predator" universe. Even more movielike were the Projam skins which I also "de-comic-a-lized" but only included in my PRIVATE version of the mod, those skins are not going to be released to the public due to Projam copyrights, sorry (takes a lot of the realism away though, if they ever change their policy I'd be happy to include these).



I also edited the cshell.dll to make the colour of the light the shoulder lamp casts white/blue instead of yellow and give all the Predator vision modes a slight distortion as seen in the movies. Several attribute files have been changed to alter various things like: changing the colour and font of subtitles to appear more movie/dvd like as well as changing the colours from the ammo counter in the marine hud to red (and only the ammo counters). This change comes in a separate .rez so you can choose if you want to use it or not (or to prevent compatibility problems when playing online).



Many changes are subtle and it would take too long to explain and count everythig I did. I am finally happy with this game, as in my opinion it's now looking the way it should. But as with all texture mods, this is a matter of personal preference and taste.



Version 1.1 Changes:

--------------------

- The folder "MODELS" which was included in one rez in the initial version was removed the models there are broken (caused problems in MP) and not intended to be in the mod release.
Under the Hunter's Moon (1.0)
-------------------------------------

Under the Hunter's Moon - Version 1.0

-------------------------------------



'Under the Hunter's Moon' is a multi-level Single Player campaign based on the 20th Century Fox movie, 'Alien vs Predator' (2004) explored from the Perspective of one of the Predator initiates that enters the pyramid. The Campaign is structured to follow the events of the AvP movie up until the point where two young Predators are killed by the Alien known as 'Grid'. That event does not occur in this Campaign and an alternate narrative branches just prior to this incident.



You will be required to combat Humans and Aliens; and solve environmental obstacles and puzzles. Your goal is to complete specific Objectives in order to survive and finish the Campaign. You will then finally be acknowledged as worthy to join the the 'Brothers of the Spear' Clan as a fully fledged member of their Hunter caste.
AvP2 - 2010 Modification (1.0)
Why, hello there!

K, FBV-86 here, and this is probably my only one release for the year 2010, you'll find more information about it on the readmefile, there is no point into posting the same "description stuff" here...



If you want to see the preview video of this mod, go here....

Just one more reccomendation: USE WINZIP TO UNPACK THIS FILE: I am not going to help anyone who comes up crying "the file is corrupted, help me, booh-ooh, booh-ooh!" lol!



Enjoy dear AvP2 gamers!!!
Island of the Dead
This single-player campaign promises to be an eerie addition to your collection. Based on the works of the Swiss symbolist painter Arnold B�cklin, this campaign is designed for a spooky experience. The author recommends you quicksave often to avoid a surprising and gruesome demise.

BioWeapon
This is my AVP2 single player map "BioWeapon". It is a marine single player map. The map is themed around the original single player campaign for Aliens vs. Predator 2, although, the story itself is not related to the original game. I started making this map near the end of February 2005. This map is my first publicly released map.

Storyline:

_________



On a distant planet, LV 263, the Weyland-Yutani Corporation has established a mining and research facility. The planet's rich mineral deposits made it an ideal source for scientific development. However, the mineral mining facility has simply been a front for public and military eyes. In truth, the Yutani Corporation has discovered a subterranean xenomorph hive on the planet, and constructed the facility to gain access to the hive and conduct experimental research. Now, during one of the most critical experiments, the facility has suffered a power loss. Something has gone wrong. Unable to mount a timely investigation themselves, the Yutani Corporation has asked the marines to investigate the situation. So, after arriving to the planet by dropship, your marine team has set course for the mining facility via APC. Just another routine mission to restore communications at a mineral mining facility and clean up after the Yutani Corporation again.....or so you thought.

    The Sunday Discussion - GamerPoets - YouTuber and creator of awesome tutoria...

    posted by BlindJudge Interviews
    There are a lot of people out there who would love to become a YouTube personality, the thought of creating videos on a subject you love for a living is incredibly appealing. But with the satisfaction of releasing a well-received video comes the incredible amount of work, time, dedication and money that goes into it.

    This week we chat to GamerPoets, a YouTuber who began producing videos as an outlet for an event that rocked his world.



    Hey GamerPoets, many thanks for talking to me today. I guess the first thing we should find out is a little bit about you?

    Hey SmartBlueCat, thank you very much for chatting to me today. To begin with can you tell the community a little bit about you please?

    NMM2 - Update and recruitment

    posted by BlindJudge Site News
    Back in October Dark0ne announced the recruitment of Tannin and the subsequent development of a new Nexus Mod Manager. Since then, we've been working extremely hard and while things might seem a bit quiet on our end, I assure you, we're moving at a great pace! I apologise for the lack of updates but, in between the site redesign and the new mod manager things have just been rather busy here at Nexus Mods HQ.

    Today I would like to give an update on the status of the project and also to reach out to our community for possible assistance, but more on that a bit further on.

    The Sunday Discussion - The Skyblivion Team - Recreating Oblivion in the Sky...

    posted by BlindJudge Feature
    It's truly a love affair when a team sets out to recreate one game, in its entirety, in another game engine. That's most certainly the case for a number of 'The Elder Scrolls Renewal' teams who are recreating Morrowind in the Skyrim engine under the name 'Skywind', and Oblivion in the Skyrim engine under the name 'Skyblivion'.

    These teams want to make sure that newer players get to experience these classic Elder Scrolls games in all their glory with more up to date textures and mechanics. Whilst Skywind is still the bigger project, Skyblivion is fast picking up steam and the team is both hard ...(continue reading the full article)

    This week we have again taken a peek at the mods that are out there and (hopefully) come up with some real crackers for you to check out. TerrorFox1234 has found a great mod collection that is all wrapped up into one nicely bundled 'utility' mod, SirSalami has found some new ways to spend his time in New Vegas, and I have found a mod that was produced following the AMA session I had with Elianora.

    We've had an anonymous submission that I checked out and really liked, their selection is a total redesign of Sanctuary from Fallout 4 that adds many new buildings, fixes the bridge and also changes ...(continue reading the full article)

    The Sunday Discussion - TheModernStoryteller - creator of "The Forgotten...

    posted by BlindJudge Interviews
    It seems as though games are never taken as seriously as other media forms such as movies, television series, music or even books. To many people we simply play a game, a game created without any thought towards a story, the lore or even the characters. We, as gamers, know that not to be true. 

    However, last year something incredible happened and a mod called "The Forgotten City" won the national Writers Guild award for its script. Proving, at last, that what we create is something that can hold its own against other mainstream media.

    Today I'm pleased to give you the Sunday discussion with th ...(continue reading the full article)
