About this mod

Dark Souls - Prepare to die AGAIN - Lordran reborn

I always loved the feeling of my first Dark Souls run. Everything felt fresh and new and I did not know where deadly enemies lured around. But with every run the game felt less "exciting". Dont get me wrong, Dark Souls is still one of the best games ever made. But the feeling was different. I knew all the enemy positions and also NG+ did change nothing aswell (congratulation to DS2 for actually changing things in NG+ cycles...). I just wished it would be possible to erase my memory and experience the game like it was my first time...but sadly this is not possible yet.
But then I found out about all the awesome modding tools that exist for Dark Souls 1.
The idea to create a complete overhaul for Dark Souls was born...

What this mod does
This mod is a huge lore-friendly expansion that tries to make you experience a fresh but also familiar Dark Souls!
There are new enemy positions, new bonfire positions, new enemies, new quests, new NPC positions, new spells, new armor sets, new rings, new weapons, new events, new items and much more. There are more than over thousand changes plus brand new content! So just discover it for yourself ;)

Does it affect Multiplayer?
Since version 6.0 using this mod online is no issue anymore. There are changes made to the game version number. That means that you can only connect to other players using this mod. Vanilla players are uneffected. (Only PTDE version)

Why are there no images?
I hope you understand that after all that work I dont want to spoil the experience for you. There are changes everywhere and showing you images would take away the element of surprise. And if you are like me who bought Dark Souls without knowing ANYTHING about it, you dont want to be spoilered at all ;-)

How to use (PTD-Edition only)
You have to unpack your Dark Souls files for this to work. (Step 1!)
  1. Download my files and make sure that you have unpacked your files by using this: https://www.nexusmods.com/darksouls/mods/1304/(duh!)
  2. Navigate to your Dark Souls-DATA folder
  3. Make sure to have a backup of this folder
  4. Open the DATA-folder of my mod and copy EVERYTHING of it into your DATA-folder
  5. Override your old files with mine
  6. Launch Dark Souls via Steam

How to use (Remastered only)
  1. Download my files (duh!)
  2. Navigate to your Dark Souls: Remastered folder (the one, where the .exe is located)
  3. Make sure to have a backup of everything you are going to replace
  4. Open the archive of my mod and copy EVERYTHING of it into your Dark Souls: Remastered folder
  5. Override your old files with mine
  6. Launch Dark Souls: Remastered via Steam

"Mod is saying that I am using the wrong version"
Make sure that you are using the steam version of Dark Souls: Prepare to die again. Right click on the game in your library and open the settings. Switch to the Beta-Tab and make sure that you are not using a beta version here!
After that the mod should run fine.

You have to play the game in english or german to get all the new texts! Otherwise they won't show up.
If you can speak two languages fluently and want to help me translate the mod, feel free to write a message.
(Currently the remastered version only supports english, but I will update it soon so it will also support german)
