This mod isn't dead yet! I haven't been working on it in the past few months but I'm ready to start again.
There are two main things I want to focus on right now:
-I do not use ANY dialouge ingame (mainly because the ingame dialouge always bothered me, secondly because I couldn't figure out how to script people to say dialouge at certain points ) so I created invisible plot objects that, when you step over them, a dialouge box appears and describes what is going on (also includes dialouge like in a book. Ex. He said "put out the fire," but she replied... and so on). For the first time that I know of, I am including actual ingame voices for dialouge every time a human character is wounded or dies (I may further the dialouge if I can)
-one thing I didn't like about Notrium was that the flashlight was part of your body when you turn it on. I am going to attempt to make the flashlight an actual "weapon" that uses the visual effects of a flashlight so you have to choose between the flashlight or a gun or melee weapon. Later on in the game, I will utilize the amazing combination system to make it where, if you have a gun, duct tape, and a flashlight, you can combine them to make a gun w\ flashlight so you can see in dark corridors and shoot at the same time.
If anyone wants to help me on the flashlight thing, please show me how to script this ( I have some idea of how to do this but it is mostly based on theory)
as soon as these two things are out of the way, I intend on releasing another (much, much more completed) version of the first part of the game.
