    Hello, and Welcome to This (Not So Pretty) Forum Thread for my First Mod!


    Features:


    - New and Bright Ideas for using Projectiles that can be Completely Useless to OP
    - Stuff I made during class when I should be paying attention...
    - Borrowed and Recolored Vanilla Textures (For Now...)

    - One Merchant Who Sells Some of the Materials (Maybe More NPCs Later On)
    - Most of All... Fun!

    New WIP mod? Lemme take a look. Is some of the weapons really OP? :joy:

    I tried my best with the balancing and hoping they are not that OP. I hope that you enjoy this mod and tell me what I can do to make it more balanced!

    Weapons are not that overpowered. I can say that it is balanced.

    Most of the "Mod's Contents" Items now have a preview of their projectiles in action. Spoil it at your own risk.

    EDIT: Removed all Basemod dependencies because most of the items didn't need Basemod. Sorry for updating the tapi file just to remove BaseMod dependencies.

    I am sorry about the constant updating of the tapi file, I just keep finding things that are going wrong with the current items. For recompense, I am adding one of the weapons I have been working on for the next big update; the ancient bow, which will only need 1 Dirt Block until I release the next big update. Also, I just thought about it, and it's sort of confusing if I keep the older versions of the tapi on the forum, so I will be removing that too.

    Thank you, I have been working on some concepts (though some of them don't seem to be not working for now), but I have mostly completed the Orbital Ray (though is not as great as it should be) and will be starting on some other projects (like a Shadow Beam Heat Ray / Shadow Beam Laser Rifle) and improving some of the items (for example Force of Will will increase defense/cut damage). Can someone help me make sprites for these items? I really don't want to keep recoloring vanilla items to my liking.

    Pumping up the thread with a preview of our brand new amazing saws! That now look more like ninja stars, but still awesome!

    [​IMG] (SC new saw*) > [​IMG] (Metalman's saw from Megaman 2) > [​IMG] (SC old saw)

    As you can see, our new saw is much, much more amazing than Metalman's and the old saw. You can't argue with facts!
