Mods & Hacks Anonymous 01/14/2022 (Fri) 14:03:13 No.1745
What are anons favorite mods or game hacks? Any mods you consider essential for a certain game? Have you made any yourself?
Personally I'm not really into mods/hacks. I understand that it can be fun to fuck about, but to me the original creator's intent and artistry behind the game is kinda the important part.
>>1746 That makes sense, first playthroughs should be vanilla for sure. What do you think about total conversions (for example Ashes 2063, Enderal, The Dark Mod and so on)?
>>1747 Not familiar with those, what do they do?
Blitzkrieg Mod with the D-Day June 1944 historical add-on for Company of Heroes. C&C: ShockWave for Command & Conquer: Generals. I have some Kohan mod installed that adds extra heroes to skirmish that I really like. I think the new heroes were actually taken from the campaign, so it feels pretty seamless. Conversely, a lot of mods out there feel pretty amateurish. I've never been a Total Annihilation fan, but there used to be a mod with a Cold War setting called World Domination that I used to enjoy.

>>1748 A total conversion is a mod that replace most if not all content from the base game, before quality game engines were more readily available rookie game devs often got their start by overhauling their favorite titles. Some classic examples include Counter-Strike (Half-Life), Team Fortress (Quake) and Aliens TC (Doom). Some conversions later became stand-alone games in their own right.
>>1750 Isn't that not so much a mod but a standalone game build on the same engine at that point?
>>1751 It depends, if you require the original game to play then it's still technically a mod, often times there's still some residual elements from the original game (especially if the engine is less flexible, Enderal is quite obviously built on Skyrim for instance).
I made a popular mod for a strategy game. It's considered underrated because i never shilled it anywhere but people seem to like it. I'm never gonna update it again tho because modding is god fucking awful, I hated doing it but I kept going cause I loved seeing how it all looked and worked. I discovered some cool stuff no one else were able to do, I had something big planned but it's never gonna happen now. Maybe I will write it down and explain how to do it, but tbh I loved ignoring other discord/redditor modders when they were desperately trying to find out how i changed something they thought was not possible.
>>1753 which game?
Is fixing a game considered a mod?
>>1755 It is unlike what Bethesda and many STALKER fans say
>>1756 They're not in charge.
>>1755 Those are usually called unofficial patches but yes.
