Announced 2 months and a half ago on Discord, the Haru Estia mod is now finished!

BIOGRAPHY

When the catastrophe known as the Great Void befell Cloudream, the Earth of an alternate universe, the entire world was turned upside down under the reign of chaos and the march of endless armies of extraterrestrial monsters known as SoulDregs. The teenage girl named Haru Estia proved no exception to this inexorable influence. Over the course of her life, her name became associated with many descriptions, from young medical prodigy, to one of mankind's worst criminals, to even its last hope.

At the height of her professional background, a general evacuation order rang throughout her entire home town. She returned home to celebrate her achievements along with her loved ones, only to see her mother crushed under debris, depleted of life. Her despair complete, Haru grieved soundly near her lifeless body, failing even to notice the Void overhead consuming her.

Eventually, with the surrounding area converted by the strange energies of the Void, a man known as Tenebris came upon her and, overcome by pity, welcomed her into Grasscover Camp, the refugee site which he had established in this now dangerous place. Catching up with events, she learned not only that the camp was incessantly threatened by monsters, but also that she herself had obtained a puzzling power to create swords out of thin air.

Awakened from her grief, but broken still, Haru gradually dedicated herself to the total destruction of these abominations, and put it before even the most basic of human needs such as rest, much to the concern of Tenebris and to the convenience of the villainous Kent, the one responsible for the apocalypse of Cloudream hidden among humans as one of them.

Haru soon realized that, confined in this camp and abiding by its established rules, she would never achieve her ultimate goal of vengeance. One fateful night, she joined the SoulWorker known as Erwin Arclight in an act of escape, at first under the promise of leading her to the one who created the Void. Gradually, as the two spent time together roaming the SoulDreg infested wastelands, and eventually found another establishment where they settled, her negativity started to fade, and before long, she could bring herself to speak of protecting the people dear to her. But even that hope would serve only as fuel for the despair that was to come, for the people of the settlement discovered the true nature of the two wanderers, and in an act of overwhelming paranoia, plotted to kill them both. Forced to slaughter every inhabitant with whom she once laughed, Haru finally snapped and gave in to Desire.

With a new belief, that even the humans in the Void are merely part of it, she laughed away the last remnants of her sanity and took her first step towards the fulfillment of a bloody ambition - the death of all that is unfortunate enough to fall in her line of sight. Her tenacity inspired other misguided humans, twisted by Desire, to join her, and so, over the next 15 years, thousands would meet a miserable end at the tip of her blade, or at the hands of her followers.

After 15 years, Haru fought a golden woman known as Lakasha, who easily defeated her and removed her from the area conquered by the Void. This resulted in permanent amnesia of all the events that had taken place up until that moment in her life. And so, upon witnessing the suffering in the world, her first instinct was to protect everyone from the danger posed by the SoulDregs, as well as a warlike alien race going by the name of Bashai. As if history itself was ignorant to her dark deeds, the world accepted her as a beacon of hope, with threat after threat dispatched by her awesome powers. To this day, Haru remains the last line of defense against forces of evil beyond the mere mortal's understanding or control.

This mod features:
-three skins: SoulWorker, Advancement and DesireWorker
-five basic offensive powers
-two boosts
-one Xtreme
-visual and sound effects for powers, including new models
-a voice file
-HUDs
-a grab smash whose damage can be upgraded by ranking up the first power

VERY IMPORTANT: Before you install this mod, make sure to backup 0501.igb inside ui/models/mannequin and inside textures/loading. They are, respectively, the model for Thing that you see when you're in the character selection screen and he's not on the team, and his loading screen. Haru's mannequin and loading screen overwrite his. Also, make sure that Thing is not on your roster when you start a new game. Not taking these measures can result in glitches.

It has come to my attention that the grab smash ability was not working. This issue should be fixed now, as I had forgotten to include two interact files.

I have updated the download link as well. Download the mod again and take the interact files from the actors and data/fightstyles folders and place them in those respective folders in the game files. That should fix the grab smash not working.

It has been brought to my attention that people have had issues with power textures for Armor Smash and Best Served Cold, and for people playing with consoles, icon related issues as well. In addition, there were issues with the way powers and power ranks were being unlocked. This has been hotfixed. If you experienced such issues, please visit the first post on this thread and download the mod again. And my deepest apologies extended to you for this goof-up.

For the texture problem, very much worth noting is that there are new .igb assets inside the texture folder, and two new folders, decals and nextgen, which also contain .igb files. Make sure you add those to your respective game files, and make sure that you overwrite the talents file and the effects files from the previous Haru mod version with this latest hotfixed version's.

Many thanks to the people who let me know of these issues, A.K.A. UltraMegaMagnus and Anderson Brazil, and as always, thank you very much for your consideration of downloading and playing with my mod! I hope these fixes will suffice.

Upon further consultation with some people, my most recently posted hotfix did not resolve the icons issue. However, some modifications I made in the package files have been confirmed to make them appear for console users as they should. I have made a mediafire link to an archive with the good package filesw which you can download and overwrite the current package files with. Thank you for your patience.

I updated my Haru Estia mod with some minor bug fixes and changes.

What you can expect from this update:

-two new loading screens for the Advancement and DesireWorker skins
-fixed an issue which caused HUD effects such as the low HP ring or the Xtreme ready ring appearing behind the actual HUD icons
-fixed an issue which caused control users to not be able to see power icons while in-game
-added a texture to the hair of the Advancement skin

Big issues that still remain:

-for some people (don't know, but maybe even for everyone), the power textures appear corrupted. On my end, everything looks fine. I'm not sure how to fix this yet, but fixes I tried yesterday and the day before didn't work. I'll have to think something up.

Link to the update: http://www.mediafire.com/file/hkvn9nrdfs1yp9g/Haru_Estia_V1.1.rar/file

For those of you who have already installed the first version, 1.0, you only need the following:

-actors/0507.igb
-data/talents/haru_estia.engb
-all the files inside packages/generated/characters
-all the .igb files inside textures
-all the files inside textures/nextgen
-all the files inside textures/decals
-0502.igb and 0503.igb from textures/loading
-all the files inside hud

Replace where necessary.

Thank you, as always, for your patience and for your continued interest in this mod! Until next time.

It's been roughly 3 weeks since I first announced this mod on Discord, and now, the time is finally upon us! Everyone, welcome my second mod ever, the Lily Bloomerchen mod, to the fold!

BIOGRAPHY

Lily Bloomerchen was an affluent teenager from Cloudream, the planet Earth from an alternate universe. She once lived a luxurious life inside the mansion of the reputable Bloomerchen family. However, even that lifestyle would end in the blink of an eye when a catastrophe befell her world, caused by a phenomenon known as the Great Void, spawning countless nightmarish creatures, dubbed SoulDregs, as well as the attention of a warlike alien race known as the Bashai.

In a single night, Lily lost everything, and was forced to helplessly watch her brother being savagely devoured by a monster. Mentally overwhelmed by the horrific image of what she witnessed, and the inconceivable idea that everything she had was gone, she snapped. As the Void's unknown energies consumed the area, the ruins of her brother's room were filled with maniacal laughter, and they became the birthplace of one of the most vicious enemies mankind has ever known. Lily gave in to Desire all too easily, and she became the DesireWorker of Madness, granting her superhuman physical attributes, as well as the ability to materialize a scythe out of thin air from Desire.

Since that moment, like air for the lungs and rest for the weary eyes, bloodshed and the prospect of death became necessary for Lily's happiness. She joyously slaughtered thousands of creatures, no matter their alignment, in a relentless pursuit of one foe who would be powerful enough to kill her. So intoxicated she came to be by this ambition, that no wound, however grievous, would faze her anticipation for that which could deal a final blow to her. Eventually, a man named Tenebris faced Lily, and proved capable of reigning victorious against her. However, much to the mad girl's dismay, he spared her life and took her as a prisoner and DesireWorker in rehabilitation of the refugee site known as Grasscover Camp.

After many failed attempts by numerous people at restoring Lily's humanity, the two fought once again, with the initial promise that this battle would be her last. However, before the moment of execution, Tenebris understood at long last that it was not carnage that she craved, but her own demise. Taking advantage of this mindset, and in a final attempt to convince the girl to hang onto her life even just a little longer, he struck a deal - if Lily can aid him and the other warriors in the camp in their efforts to defend Grasscover Camp and push back the horrors of the Void threatening it, he would use his great power to kill her. Reluctantly, she accepted, and for years, her time would be spent either in a holding cell or on the battlefield in defense of mankind. In the end, the man who promised her death disappeared, in which she saw enough reason to leave the camp to continue her pursuit of strong enemies, until eventually, she joined the villainess Haru Estia and her followers in her quest to destroy humanity.

Fifteen years since the tragedy, Lily fought a golden woman, going by the name Lakasha, and was easily bested in combat by her seemingly divine power. She was then thrown outside of the area conquered by the Great Void, in a separate timeline, inducing permanent amnesia of all the events that took place up until the present. When she first opened her eyes, she saw a world in danger, and her new greed became the salvation of its people. This former menace to society soon became lauded as a hero, winning countless battles against foes who would've otherwise destroyed mankind.

To this day, Lily remains humanity's last true hope against the many threats it faces.


This mod features:
-four skins: SoulWorker, Advancement, DesireWorker and SoulJustice
-five basic offensive powers
-two boosts
-one Xtreme
-visual and sound effects for powers, including new models
-a voice file
-HUDs
-three loading screens

VERY IMPORTANT: If you have Outsider's Quake mod, then before you install this mod, make sure to backup 11601.igb inside ui/models/mannequin and 11601.igb, 11602.igb and 11603.igb inside textures/loading. They are, respectively, the model for Quake that you see when you're in the character selection screen and he's not on the team, and her loading screens. Lily's mannequin and loading screens overwrite hers. Also, make sure that Quake is not on your roster when you start a new game. Not taking these measures can result in glitches.

Mod showcase: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YK3onTRopo&feature=youtu.be (the version of the mod in this review is 1.0)

All in all, thank you for showing interest in this mod. I am very excited to be sharing it with you all, and if you're impressed by my work so far, then you can definitely expect more content from me down the line.

Until next time, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.

I've put together a hotfix of minor issues for the Lily Bloomerchen mod. The link can be found at http://www.mediafire.com/file/4s05h8bycj54iyk/Lily+Bloomerchen+V1.0.5.rar/file. I'd recommend everyone to download this update, because it also adds an effect that I neglected to include in the first archive, but you should especially download this if you downloaded V1.0 and experienced issues resembling texture corruption.

This also features a hotfix to her talents file, which fixes an issue causing the Xtreme power to be available from level 1.

For those of you who already have V1.0, you only need to overwrite all of Lily's effects files inside effects/char/lily_bloomerchen, her talents file, and drag and drop the .igb files inside textures and textures/nextgen to the respective folders inside the game files.

Hopefully this should fix what I believe would be broken otherwise. I would once again like to thank you for your interest in my work, and I sincerely hope you enjoy playing as Lily! Corvette, taking off.

Post by: corvetterules on August 26, 2020, 07:06pm
I have put together a new update for my Haru Estia mod. This update features:

-a new skin, called SoulJustice, as the fourth skin
-a new HUD for the fourth skin
-major fixes to an issue which caused a sword to appear in Haru's hand at seemingly random times

The link to the archive is here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/twunfz6husve0xp/Haru+Estia+V1.2.rar/file

For those of you who have already installed my Haru Estia mod (presumably V1.1 - if not, I'd recommend just overwriting everything to be safe), the only files of interest are the 0509 files inside packages/generated/characters, the 0509.igb file inside actors, the talents file, the powerstyles file and the herostat entry (you will have to replace the old Haru Estia herostat entry with the new one, inside of your herostat.cfg/herostat.engb file).

I wouldn't consider this update to be big, but I would still say that a lot of people will be happy with the fixes at least. I have the creator's bias, so to speak, and even I found it annoying to encounter that sword issue over and over again during gameplay. That, and those who enjoy magical girl shows will love the new skin.

Thank you once again for your interest in my work, and I hope you have a joyous time with it! Until next time, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.

Just like Haru Estia, Lily Bloomerchen now has a fourth skin, called SoulJustice, with the new V1.1 update, which can be found at this link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/3he5574k72wddcg/Lily+Bloomerchen+V1.1.rar/file

To those of you who have installed V1.0.5 (for everyone else, I'd recommend just dragging and dropping all the contents of the archive to their respective folders to be on the safe side), the following are the files of interest which you must drag and drop to their respective folders (some will require overwriting):

-actors/11611.igb
-the powerstyles file
-the talents file
-hud/hud_head_11611.igb
-models/bolton/justScytheHemorrhage.igb
-packages/generated/characters/the 11611 .igb files
-the herostat entry

Along with this update, I must unfortunately announce the following - for the time being, at least, I am suspending my combo recommendation and synergy recommendation videos on YouTube. I am sorry to those who appreciated that content, but I'm afraid they are rather time consuming, and at the moment I would rather spend that time working on future mods. I may resume making them in the future, should the demand for them be sufficiently high. But make no mistake - the mod showcase videos aren't going anywhere. They're here to stay and always will be.

Thank you for your understanding, and for your interest in my work. I sincerely hope it's fun to play with in-game. Until next time, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.

Post by: corvetterules on August 28, 2020, 04:48am
I imagine some people who have been playing with Haru's DesireWorker skin, myself very much included, were bugged by the way her long coat behaves while she's running, among other animations. Which is why I went ahead and... fixed it? I wouldn't say it looks perfect as a result of the changes I made, but it certainly looks a lot less bad now IMO. The link to the skin is here, just replace the 0508.igb file in your actors folder with the file at this link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/s3ppi32yh8uy3rt/0508.igb/file (this of course assumes you have installed the mod)

There are some other improvements to the skin's appearance, the most notable one being that the texture on her right arm has been partially fixed (a full fix would require an overhaul of the entire skin, which I'm leaving on the back burner at the moment).

Hope you found these fixes useful! Until next time, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.

As my third contribution to the vast selection of MUA character mods, I present to you Jin Seipatsu!

BIOGRAPHY

Jin Seipatsu was a caring young man from Cloudream, the Planet Earth of an alternate universe, and that pure nature would bleed into his actions. He is a person who has taken on countless volunteering jobs which would enable him to work with and aid people, from common professions such as barbecue chef and factory engineer, to even more dangerous ones such as lifeguard and rescue team member. Before his life was forever changed by the Great Void which cursed his world, his final profession was that of a laborer at a refugee site.

Despite even Jin himself feeling dread gnawing at him, he would always overcome himself in order to bring peace of mind to any refugees sick with worry that they may not survive, through reassurance. Unfortunately, his blind optimism was for naught, as the fearsome darkness of the Void suddenly began to consume the refugee site. Guilt-ridden by his self-imagined failure to protect the people, he committed to an insane act of running straight into the heart of that emptiness in a flimsy attempt to rescue the mother of a lone, young child.

His effort rendered worthless, Jin was now stuck in a vast area covered in bleakness and teeming with monsters, known as SoulDregs, seeking to satiate their ravenous appetite by preying on powerless humans. And in that moment, he himself was human no more, for his great willpower to intervene and rescue people, in spite of his incredible fear, has earned him an equally great power, fueled by SoulForce, to fire energy blasts from his hands. His survival successful for the moment, he continued to roam the Void until he came upon a refugee camp, called Grasscover Camp, established by the man called Ladi and his best friend, Tenebris, whom he joined without so much as a first thought.

Over time, Jin had truly come to aspire to become as admirable an individual as these two founders of the camp, who would defend and rescue people every single day, and even return the ones misguided by Desire, known as DesireWorkers, to their former human selves on rare occasions. That dream would grow more and more in relevance as the population of Grasscover Camp started to dwindle. With time, this establishment would suffer incalculable losses, the worst of which being the supposed death of Ladi, the treason of the powerful SoulWorkers, Iris Yuma and Erwin Arclight, and the sudden disappearance of Tenebris. Even Jin Seipatsu's seemingly unflinching optimism could not withstand the gravity of such events, and he was shook to his very core as the malevolent entities stalking the Void continued to weaken the camp and deal crushing defeats.

Eventually, as blind positivity had come to be replaced with fear for the worst, he found himself wishing for more power, in a place which preyed on such thoughts, so that he could take matters into his own hands and defend mankind. It was at that moment that the vile Kent, perpetrator of the Void disguised as a human and refugee, offered to grant him the forbidden power of Desire. Knowing well what the consequences would be, Jin accepted, and so, his rebirth was complete as the DesireWorker of Passion, with the newfound ability to concentrate energy into extremely powerful impacts. In a world where death and misery were commonplace, his only true boon was a one-track mind, determined to crush the enemy at all costs.

He soon left Grasscover Camp and began his unstoppable rampage, with the DesireWorker plague as its target. His hollow heart knowing no more of human concepts such as fear or restraint, Jin Seipatsu has exterminated countless people twisted by Desire and killed innocent humans as an act of mercy, believing it better for them to die by his hands than mauled and devoured by some horrible beast. Though all living beings in the Void came to be his targets, none earned his wrath more than the despicable Haru Estia, whose dark shadow eclipsed the light of hope that humanity needed in this place, or the traitorous Iris Yuma, who abandoned her own kind to pursue a personal agenda.

After a decade and some of dedication to this quest, he had finally reduced the total number of DesireWorkers in the Void to barely more than a handful, himself included. He raced towards what he thought to be the end of his journey, as he sensed a collective of such people in the distance, only to arrive upon the scene of a one-sided battle in the favor of a divine woman of gold, named Lakasha. He too opposed her, and suffered the same crushing defeat as the others, before being sent to an alternate timeline, outside of the Void-conquered areas, with no memory of anything that had happened.

As if fate itself could not stand Jin Seipatsu dirtying his soul with such bloodshed, he returned to his previous self, defined by a bottomless well of enthusiasm for the future, even as he saw a dying world in need of help and awakened as a SoulWorker to save it. Lauded as a hero and role model by too many to count, to this very day, he stands as a mighty and stalwart sentry against the countless threats that would've otherwise erased mankind.


This mod includes:
-four skins: SoulWorker, Advancement, DesireWorker and SoulJustice
-four basic offensive powers
-two boosts and one debuff
-one Xtreme
-visual and sound effects for powers, including new models
-a voice file
-HUDs
-a mechanic which allows him to build up attack speed using basic attacks
-three loading screens

WARNING: This mod clashes with Outsider's Falcon mod. In order to install and use the Jin Seipatsu mod without any unforeseen side effects, you must remove Falcon from your in-game roster and backup ui/models/mannequin/24101.igb, as well as textures/loading/24101.igb, 24102.igb and 24103.igb. Neglecting to do so will cause issues.

I must say, I'm quite anxious to be releasing this mod to the public at long last. I really like how this mod turned out, and I hope you do too. As always, many thanks for expressing interest! Credits and known issues can be found inside README.txt.

Until next time, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.

I have decided to make some changes to the way my mod catalog works here. Previously, my first post would contain the Mediafire download links for the mods, as well as the link for the mod showcase. I have modified that so that it instead provides links towards the release post, which in turn provides the download link. This, of course, also means that any mod updates I release from now on will be included in the release posts, rather than my first post. I figure this would lead to less confusion, so to speak, as before I made this change, my release posts were never updated to include the latest version, and they also never specified that said latest version would be in the first post.

Hello everyone! My apologies for the seemingly long delay of the Jin Seipatsu mod showcase video. Think not for a second that I've given up on the idea. However, in the meantime, I wanted to put together some fixes and quality of life improvements, ranging from minor to rather major, for all of my three mods so far. Jin Seipatsu has received the most, I'd say. So, let's get right into it:

The new update to my Jin Seipatsu mod, V1.1, features the following changes:

-fixed an issue which would cause Jin to not stop talking and a sound effect to keep playing during the defensive stance of Reactive Field, especially at high attack speeds
-added attack speed stacking to Jin's ground attacks (his attacks when hitting an enemy that is lying down), 10% per hit, and nerfed the attack speed gained from light attacks from 10%/20%/30% to 10%/15%/20%, respectively
-added an effect to Jin's gauntlets during his Xtreme
-fixed an issue which caused Jin's second boost, High Spirits, to reduce energy consumption a LOT more than intended
-also fixed an issue with High Spirits which caused leveling the ability to make the energy consumption decrease lower
-fixed an issue which caused Ki Burst to slow enemies down by a lot more than intended
-made some changes to the names and/or descriptions of some powers, including the Xtreme, which is now called "Punisher of the Void"

The new update to Haru Estia, V1.3, features a few minor fixes:

-fixed an issue with Haru's long coat behaving oddly when using the DesireWorker skin, especially during animations such as push/pull
-fixed an issue with one of Haru's... coat belts, for lack of a better term, when using the Advancement skin, which caused them to appear distorted during animations such as running
-changed the name of her Xtreme to "Executioner of the Void"

And finally, the new version of Lily Bloomerchen, V1.2, also features some fixes:

-fixed an issue which caused Lily to randomly hold her scythe at times when she should not, especially if controlled by AI. However, this comes at the cost of all of Lily's powers being uninterruptable, making her more powerful, to the dismay of some
-fixed an issue with the combo text of any combo which includes Lily's Mad Lunge power
-renamed her Xtreme to "Reaper of the Void"
-made it so that her effects files reference texture assets which are completely separate from the game's vanilla textures. Make sure you drag and drop the .igb files inside the texture folder

Next up is the Jin Seipatsu mod showcase video. I'm glad I got these fixes out of the way for now. Until next time, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.

My next mod will actually be a 2 for 1 special. For that reason, I'm afraid I must set the expectation that it may take a little longer to put this next batch of content out, but my hope is that the extra time I will have taken will also have made it worth the wait.

I'd rather not risk keeping people with unanswered questions or anything, so I would like to announce right now that, given some real life things currently going on, my overall mod development is likely to be slower. Apologies for any inconvenience to those who are looking forward to my future content.

I know what I said in what is quite literally the post just before this one, but I kind of felt like binging on mod development lately, so here we are. This time, we've got a 2 for 1 special. Everyone, welcome Stella Unibell and Fuu Chan to the fray!

BIOGRAPHY 1

Stella Unibell was once merely an orphaned young villager, who was yet not born quite like everyone else. For as long as she can remember, she has been able to see and communicate with spirits, as well as be a means for such entities to manifest in the physical realm. Unfortunately, this gift proved to be little more than a curse. Her people, paranoid of what she might do with such power, labeled her an outcast and a target for endless prejudice and cruelty.

Numbered were the days that the young Stella would spend without an expression of hatred from other villagers, be it through profane insults or even physical abuse. Overwhelmed the entire time by a mix of heartbreak and confusion as to why her people would do this, she persistently tried to approach and befriend them, only for that sweetness to be brutally rejected in return. In the end, the only company she had was that of the spirits she conjured, at every step seeking to comfort her.

Down the line, an event beyond understanding transpired, caused by an alien power named the Great Void, which affected the village. Without a second thought, the inhabitants of the area put the blame on Stella, an act from which she finally had her fill. Blind with tears, she left the world behind and willingly entered the area conquered by the Void, where she found a ruined building in which she could embrace solitude for the rest of her days.

Though most of her time in these ruins was spent in peace and silence, there were times when Stella would inevitably encounter other people. Her insistence firm on being lonely, believing that she brings only evil to society, she violently drove anyone foolish enough to get close away with the help of the spirits accompanying her.

In spite of this, one day, she met a child named Catherine. Before she could be repelled, the two became fast friends and spent time together, even to the point where this girl would offer Stella a present. For one who was hated her entire life, this was an extraordinary occasion, bringing with it happiness of the kind that she never felt before. Finally, there was someone who not only didn't hate her, but seemingly cherished her.

But even that light at the end of a long tunnel would turn out to be a lie. One day, a small team, led by the SoulWorker Tenebris, ambushed the ruins where she dwelled with her new friend, aiming to save her from what they perceived to be confinement. Stella raged against this act of intrusion and commanded her spirits to kill the invaders. Ultimately, the combined efforts of her and her spirits were not enough to defeat this squad and stop them from taking Catherine.

One member of this team was Kant, a god in disguise who was secretly responsible for the creation of the Void. He mercilessly smashed Stella's present in front of her as she laid helpless on the ground, seeking to trigger her awakening as a DesireWorker.

His plan a terrific success, the young girl eventually rose to her feet with a new belief - that she is not human, and therefore can never pursue happiness. And with that final moment of reflection, she resolved to exterminate all of mankind as vengeance, while continuously damning the unfairness of her fate. To that end, she eventually joins a collective led by another individual with a similar aspiration, named Haru Estia, and together with them, becomes responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocents.

15 years after Stella first entered the Void, she fought a godlike individual named Lakasha, and was easily defeated. She was then thrown out of the Void in an alternate timeline, which resulted in complete memory loss. After waking up, the first thing she saw was a world threatened from all sides by otherworldly creatures, and so, she came to fight against them. These actions led to the love and appreciation of humanity as a whole, the same species she once unknowingly sought to slay, and she became greeted as a heroine. Since then and until present, she has been on the front lines as the last hope of the human race and saving it from forces which would've otherwise destroyed it.


This mod features:
-4 skins: SoulWorker, Advancement, DesireWorker and SoulJustice
-3 loading screens
-unique SFX
-a mechanic which allows Stella to change her entire powerset by using a boost power (except her Xtreme)
-6 offensive powers and 4 status boosts in total, as well as one Xtreme

Credits and known issues can be found inside the Readme.txt file.

VERY IMPORTANT: This mod clashes with Outsider's Ant Man mod. Before you install this mod, please backup ui/models/mannequin/25201.igb, as well as textures/loading/25201.igb, 25202.igb and 25203.igb. Also, please remove Ant Man from your roster. Neglecting to do this will result in issues.

BIOGRAPHY 2

Little is known of the origins and identity of the astral entity known by the name of Fuu Chan, other than that he has already joined the ranks of the dead. However, his present status is very much clear - he has sworn to raise and defend a young girl known as Stella Unibell, along with any spirits conjured by her, at any cost.

Ever since Stella's birth, Fuu has been with her. Having come into being with the supernatural power of being able to see and speak to spirits, the community of the village she was born in was overcome with paranoia at what she might do with these abilities, which prompted them to shun her.

But it was more than just loneliness that Fuu would be forced to witness Stella experiencing. Unprovoked verbal and physical violence were commonplace for this poor girl, regardless of her intentions and actions. His hatred for mankind growing steadily each day, he tried to convince the child to stop trying to befriend such cruel people, and instead simply despise them as he did, but to no avail. Her pure heart longed for understanding, and would not be deterred so easily from eventually being accepted, and so, for years to come, she would continuously, yet fruitlessly, attempt to approach people in hopes of forming friendships.

One day, a disaster befell their home world, Cloudream, including the village that they lived in. Full of nothing but suspicion, the villagers stacked their blame onto the harmless Stella, blinded by fear of that which they cannot understand. It was with this outburst that she finally made the decision to leave, heading straight for the Void, where she hoped to find solitude and isolation from the rest of humanity for as long as she had left to live. Fuu Chan and the spirits followed.

Stella and her ethereal companions spent most of their time in the ruins of an abandoned building. It was here that, over time, she would obtain another power called Desire, which allowed her to materialize a guitar out of thin air, through which to manifest many harmful effects such as energy blasts and electricity, at the cost of this power slowly eroding her mind. On rare occasions, humans would chance upon the ruins they called home, only to be repelled in a most violent manner. That is, until the time that they met a young girl called Catherine.

Though at first reluctant to interact with another human, Stella and Fuu found that this child was full of nothing but friendliness and compassion. Even the pain riddled DesireWorker couldn't help but be absorbed into interacting with her, and so, they quickly became best friends. For once, it seemed like she could finally experience the peace of a normal life, with loved ones.

Only a few days later, however, that hope would be shattered pitilessly by a squad led by the SoulWorker Tenebris, in whose eyes Catherine was a hostage of Stella. Despite the best, desperate efforts of Fuu and the spirits which he commands to prevent them from having their way, they failed, and Stella snapped under the despair of losing her friend.

She soon declared that she would destroy mankind for what they have done to her, an ambition which Fuu Chan assisted her in achieving without question, wishing only for this tortured girl's smile. Before long, they banded up with a team of individuals just like them, led by a DesireWorker named Haru Estia, and so they started bringing true annihilation to the portion of the human race which was stranded in the Void.

15 years after they first entered the Void, Stella and Fuu fought what seemed like a goddess forever beyond their reach, named Lakasha, who easily defeated them. Following that, they were cast out of the Void in an alternate timeline, also resulting in memory loss for the young girl.

Her first waking moments were spent observing the broken, helpless state of the world she lived in, under the influence of countless monsters of alien origins. It was thus that, much to the shock of Fuu Chan, she resolved to help humanity using her powers, and awakened as the SoulWorker of Sorrow, in spite of their innumerable crimes against it. Ever since, they have saved countless people from unspeakable dangers, and continue to do so to this very day.

Though Fuu Chan's contempt for the human race has not lessened in the slightest, stronger than this feeling of spite is his heartfelt wish to support Stella Unibell in anything she does. If the child wishes for their salvation, so be it.


This mod includes:

-one Classic skin
-4 powers, 2 boosts, 1 debuff and 1 Xtreme
-unique SFX
-teleportation mechanics, very similar to those of Deadpool and Nightcrawler

Credits and known issues can be found inside the Readme.txt file.

VERY IMPORTANT: This mod clashes with BLaw's Firestar mod. Before you install this mod, please backup ui/models/mannequin/22401.igb. Also, please remove Firestar from your roster. Neglecting to do this will result in issues.

That's about it for now. If you find any issues with either of these mods that aren't mentioned in the Readme's, please let me know and I will try to fix them in the future. Other than that, thank you for expressing interest in these mods. As always, have a good one until next time. Corvette, taking off.

Lately, I have encountered some texture related issues when running a full team with nothing but my mods. They have a tendency to fail to load in time, instead being replaced by those yellow and purple effect squares, usually indicating that the texture is missing. This affects not only the team members' effects, but also the effects of enemies and even loading screens. I have concluded that the reason why this happens is because of game limitations being tested by the sheer amount of effects. Truth be told, my latest mods, Stella Unibell and Fuu Chan, are very effect heavy.

I will try to think of a way to solve this, most likely by cutting down on some effects without crippling the character's aesthetics too much, but at the moment, I'm afraid I cannot promise anything. In the meantime, I would recommend that, in the event that you play with my mods, try not to make an entire team of 4 with them if you want to avoid such issues. It should still be fine if you still have a team of 4 but not all of them are my mods or other equally effect intensive mods. Thank you for your understanding.

The mod showcase video for Stella Unibell and Fuu Chan is, and has been out for roughly 6 hours. My apologies for the late notification.

I have some good news for people who have inevitably found issues with the effects of my mods - I have finally figured out why, in spite of everything looking fine in the mod showcase videos, the effects of powers look strange for other people, or not as they should. The truth is, I developed and tested these mods in an environment consisting of a set of game files that I modified quite heavily 6 years ago. Expect the next update to include an absolute fix for these effects issues.

In the meantime, I can provide an immediate partial solution for Haru Estia's effect problems - make sure you turn fullscreen effects off in the game's video settings.

Other than that, my apologies for this colossal screw-up of taking almost half a year to figure this out and basically leaving my mods' effects as eyesores for everyone else. In two weeks time, I will attempt to provide fixes.
