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 Stair Second, 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 home town. Though she anticipated returning home to celebrate her achievements along with her loved ones, that was 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 young man called Tenebris chanced 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 her unceasing thoughts of revenge against the apocalypse that took her parent earned her superhuman physical attributes, as well as a puzzling power to materialize weapons 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 Void, hidden among the humans as one of them to observe and savor their self-made depravity.

Haru soon realized that, confined in this camp and abiding by its established rules, she would never achieve her ultimate goal of vengeance. Though many had tried to steer her away from this path, she saw it only as refusal to help, and was left to fester in her own negativity in a tent. 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 known as Azland Camp, her bitterness started to fade, and before long, she could bring herself to speak of protecting the people dear to her after sharing her misery and struggles with the people there. But even that brief respite from a perpetually ruined state of mind would serve only as fuel for the further anguish that was to come.

The people of the settlement discovered the true nature of the two wanderers, that they were humans corrupted by the infamous power called Desire, and in an act of overwhelming paranoia, plotted to kill them both. Forced to slaughter every inhabitant with whom she once dined and shared personal thoughts and demons, Haru finally snapped and gave in to this power.


With a new belief, that all living beings in the Void, human or alien, need to perish for her retribution to be complete, she laughed away the last remnants of her sanity and took her first step towards the fulfillment of a bloody ambition - genocide. Her tenacity inspired other misguided humans twisted by Desire to join her, and so, over the next 15 years, thousands would meet a terrible end at the tip of her blade, or at the mercy of her followers.

After 15 years, Haru fought a golden woman known as Roska, 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, she remains the last line of defense against forces of evil beyond the mere mortal's understanding or control.

This mod features:
-four skins: SoulWorker, Advancement, DesireWorker and SoulJustice
-five basic offensive powers
-two boosts
-one Xtreme
-two effects packs - a regular one and one that fits the DesireWorker skin
-two voice packs - a default hero one and a villain one
-a grab smash whose damage can be upgraded by ranking up the first power

Switching between effects packs is done by overwriting the effects files inside effects/char/haru_estia (in the game directory) with whichever effects files you want - either from the effects/desire folder or from the effects/default folder. You will also need to do the same thing for models/bolton/haru_soulum.igb and models/chunks/soulumRain.igb, two entities which are used as effects for powers.

The procedure is the same for switching between voice packs. Replace sounds/eng/h/a/haru_v.zss and haru_m.zsm (in the game directory) with the same two files from either sounds/default or sounds/desire.

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 Stair Second, 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 young 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, knowing power as great as his was not so easy to come by, and for years, her time would be spent either in a holding cell or on the battlefield in defense of the camp.

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 all life in the Void.

Fifteen years since the tragedy, Lily fought a goddess, going by the name Roska, and was easily bested in combat by her 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
-two voice packs to choose from - a default hero one, and a more villainous one to better fit the DesireWorker skin
-two effects packs to choose from - default, and one that better fits the DesireWorker skin
-three loading screens

In order to install either voice pack, you must overwrite lily_v.zss and lily_m.zsm inside sounds/eng/l/i (in the game directory) with the same two files located in sounds/desire or default/eng/l/i, inside the mod directory.

The procedure is the same for installing either effects pack - overwrite the .xmlb effects files in effects/char/lily_bloomerchen (in the game directory) with the same .xmlb effects files located in effects/default or desire/char/lily_bloomerchen inside the mod directory.

Please also make sure that you have overwritten the powerstyle file with the one from this newest update, as it contains changes necessary for the full implementation of the alternate voice and effects packs.

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.

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.

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 Stair Second, the Planet Earth of an alternate universe, and his 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 warehouse manager 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 area. 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 a 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'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 Kant, 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 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 personal agendas.

After a decade and some of dedication to this quest, he had finally reduced the total number of DesireWorkers in the Void to a point where they could be counted on one's hands, 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 Roska. 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
-two effects packs, a default one and one that better fits the DesireWorker skin
-two voice packs, a default hero one and a villain one
-a mechanic which allows him to build up attack speed using basic attacks
-three loading screens

If you wish to switch between the default and desire effects packs, all you have to do is overwrite the effects files inside effecs/char/jin_seipatsu inside your game directory with the same effects files found inside effects/desire/char/jin_seipatsu, or effects/default/char/jin_seipatsu, inside the mod directory. The procedure is the same for the voice packs - replace sounds/eng/j/i/jin_v.zss and jin_m.zsm in the game directory with the same files found in sounds/default or desire/eng/j/i.

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.

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"

Link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/bxyq74zajc2r39l/Jin+Seipatsu+V1.1.rar/file

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"

Link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/akdkibg5qgqgkn2/Haru+Estia+V1.3.rar/file

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

Link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/j2o5ktnkqc3ptn4/Lily+Bloomerchen+V1.2.rar/file

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.
Title: Re: Corvetterules - Heroes and Villains of Cloudream (SoulWorker mod catalog)
Post by: corvetterules on October 24, 2020, 08:03pm
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 away anyone foolish enough to get close 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 fate had forbidden this child from savoring any more than a brief respite from suffering. 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 joined a collective led by another individual with a similar aspiration, called Haru Estia, and together with them, became responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocents.

15 years after Stella first entered the Void, she fought a godlike individual named Roska, and was easily defeated. She was then thrown out of the area 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 was greeted as a heroine. Since then and until present day, 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 (plus an alternate loading screen for the DesireWorker skin, that doesn't have those red cracks, for those who dislike that aspect of the original DesireWorker loading screen)
-two voice packs - a default hero one, and a villainous one which better fits the DesireWorker skin
-two effects packs: a default one, and another which better fits the DesireWorker skin
-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

In order to switch between the two voice packs, you must take stel_v.zss and stel_m.zsm from sounds/default or desire/eng/s/t inside the mod directory and overwrite those same two files in sounds/eng/s/t in your game directory.

The procedure is the same for switching between effects packs - you must take all the .xmlb files inside effects/default or desire/char/stella_unibell in your mod directory and overwrite those same .xmlb files inside effects/char/stella_unibell in the game directory.

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 and that his physical manifestation is a cursed body. 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 could not 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 with the SoulWorker Tenebris as its leader, 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 heartfelt 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 a being of unimaginable power, named Roska, 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 now 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 genuine 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.

Post by: corvetterules on October 25, 2020, 09:44am
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.

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.

Post by: corvetterules on December 11, 2020, 09:18pm
The time has come for the fifth SoulWorker to enter the catalog. Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, the personification of fury, Iris Yuma!

BIOGRAPHY

Iris Yuma was once daughter to a renowned family of an alternate Earth, named Stair Second. The prestige of her bloodline brought, along with its privilege, a shackle of destiny - she would constantly be compared to her siblings, and expected to develop as a true heir of the Yuma's legacy, much in opposition to her simpler, more common wish to just be herself. Unspoken words and unexpressed feelings piled up over the years, building a natural distrust for adults and contempt for regulations and orders, and culminated at last in high school, in the wake of a bullying incident in which one of Iris' friends got caught.

Witness to this harassment, she became outraged and put an end to it through violent means, earning the scrutiny of her parents, who were prepared only to reward her loyalty to her friend with scolding. A terrible fight sparked that afternoon, after which Iris made the impulsive decision to run away from home. As she made her way, a general evacuation order rang throughout the city, in response to an unprecedented phenomenon bringing chaos to the people, now known by all as the Void.

She promptly returned to the place where her home resided, only to find a shambled ruin of what it once was. Realizing that her family is dead under the rubble and that her life had been stripped away from her, Iris became consumed by a crude mix of grief and rage, carrying her into the insane act of running straight into the heart of the Void with the intent to destroy it as revenge.

As her mind cleared up, she found herself in a vast, empty area, bustling with wrecked buildings of all shapes and sizes, broken beyond comprehension by the unnatural disasters which befell it what felt like mere moments ago. And even then, the greatest of her worries had yet to come - terrifying alien creatures stalked the land, called SoulDregs, feasting on prey of any and all matter in order to evolve.

Iris soon fell in the line of sight of such beasts. Before she could become their prey, an earnest wish for power filled her heart, and so she became a SoulForcer, gaining increased physical attributes as well as the ability to project energy blasts. Using this new power, she fended off her predators, and eventually came upon and joined an establishment of human refugees in this new hell - Grasscover Camp.

It was not long before Iris learned of the existence of humans who became twisted by a forbidden power native to the Void named Desire, and who would go on to commit unspeakable crimes against humanity. Hearing of their dastardly deeds, she could feel naught but sick with contempt for any such individuals. This viewpoint would cause her to be at odds with the founders of the establishment, Ladi and Tenebris, who actively attempted to bring in and cure this kind of people. She could not bear the thought of treating these perpetrators of genocide as victims after all they had done. And as it turned out, she was not alone in thinking this way.

Little time passed before many of the survivors of Grasscover Camp rallied under her proverbial banner as those who condemned mercy for the so-called DesireWorkers, sowing the seeds of in-fighting and the eventual fall of this refugee site. Empowered by the numbers at her back, Iris would come to yearn for more than just the accomplishment of her ideals, but simply for the feeling of being right. As that took precedence, she began to allow herself to engage in questionable acts, from endangering innocents by paying no mind to collateral damage with an "end justifies the means" mentality, to even going out of her way to attempt assassinations hidden as accidents on her fellow survivors with whom she disagreed.

Eventually, Iris saw fit to leave Grasscover Camp together with her following, never to return. She continued to perpetuate her spiteful view on the world, hardly ever noticing that she herself had become what she most hated - a DesireWorker. No emotion or thought crossed her mind, other than the total destruction of those like her, and so she has gone on to mercilessly slaughter hundreds of such humans, along with any innocents she deemed were in her way. Though no living beings would survive an encounter with Iris, none won her hatred more earnestly than Haru Estia, the perceived leader and role model of her targets, or Jin Seipatsu, the SoulForcer who at every turn stood steadfast more than anyone against her ideals of death to the ones corrupted by Desire.

15 years later, only a handful of DesireWorkers remained, herself included, a large fraction of whom had died at her hands. Bent on ending this once and for all, she raced towards a focal point of Desire which she had sensed, only to find a one-sided battle in the favor of a gold-clad figure, exhibiting a divine aura, named Roska. Sharing the same fate as the others, Iris was easily defeated, then sent to an alternate timeline outside of the Void-conquered area. And when next she woke, amidst the ruins of a destroyed city, all memory was absent from her mind.

The first step Iris took into the present was to join a worldwide organization dedicated to the defense of mankind, called the Starry Forest League, driven by an unprecedented yet deep drive to protect humanity herself. Fail she did not, for she awakened as a SoulWorker soon after, and her fantastic power prevailed against countless threats of consequences otherwise unimaginable to the human race. She has become a revered heroine and a perceived invincible champion who will almost single-handedly bring salvation to a world starved of hope after a decade and half of depthless suffering.


This mod features:

-four skins: SoulWorker (default), Advancement, DesireWorker and SoulJustice
-three loading screens, for the first three skins
-a mechanic which allows Iris to infinitely stack attack and defense whenever she hits an enemy with one of her first five powers
-five offensive powers, one debuff, one buff and one Xtreme (which is really a second buff)
-two voice packs - a default hero one and a villainous one which better fits the DesireWorker skin
-tons of camera shaking effects to portray this brawny beast of a girl

In order to switch between the two voice packs, you need to overwrite sounds/eng/i/r/iris_v.zss and iris_m.zsm inside your game directory with the same two files inside sounds/default or desire/eng/i/r in the mod directory.

Unfortunately, this mod is unlikely to get an effects pack for the DesireWorker skin in the future. The reason why is because the difference between her default skill effects and the skill effects she has in DesireWorker form is small, to the point where it cannot be captured with the mod's kit without changing her skill effects too much.

IMPORTANT: This mod clashes with BliZZ's Gambit mod. If you have that mod installed, then please backup ui/models/mannequin/21201.igb as well as textures/loading/21201.igb, 21202.igb and 21203.igb. In addition, please remove Gambit from your roster if you have him there. Failure to take these measures will result in bugs.

All in all, I sincerely hope you have as much of a blast with this mod as I had for the last couple hours. Super satisfied with how it turned out. Thank you for showing interest in my work, and I hope I can keep you coming back. Until next time, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.

Post by: corvetterules on December 12, 2020, 04:44am
I have prepared a minor update to the Iris Yuma mod, which mostly consists of bug fixes. The following issues have been resolved, at least for the most part:

-issues with the energy cost of the first power, "Strike the Despicable"
-issues with the energy cost of the fifth power, "Hammer Time"
-when using the DesireWorker skin, the cannon on the back no longer sticks to Iris' back
-Iris Yuma's grab smash no longer uses Luke Cage's effects and has effects of its own (consists of a recolor to match the other powers)
-when executing the jump smash, the cannon no longer reappears on Iris' back (but there is a compromise - when flying and descending manually back to the ground, the cannon does not reappear on her back, can be made to reappear by simply using a light attack)

In the coming days, I will attempt to experiment with a possible means of making the stacking mechanic of the Iris Yuma mod take less of a toll on the game. Personal testing has revealed that it can even go as far as to make special attributes such as being shielded or Altered Genetics to stop working for elite enemies.

However, I must unfortunately almost guarantee that instead of having powers 1-5 being capable of generating stacks, it'll all be placed on the first power, and each individual stack will provide more stats. It may disappoint some, and the issue will still not be entirely fixed as enough stacks will still gradually break the game, but this affects gameplay quite heavily.

An update to the Iris Yuma mod, V1.1, is now up for grabs. It features quite significant changes which aim to greatly improve stability during gameplay.

The stacks gained by hitting enemies with powers 1-5 now have a limited duration, and no longer persist indefinitely. This was a necessary course of action, as the overall number of individual boosts is very likely what caused issues during gameplay in the first place. However, the attack and defense from each individual stack have been greatly increased.

Old values: 0.5-3 attack, 0.075-0.3 defense
New values: 2.5-5 attack, 0.25-0.5 defense

The specific boost values at any given time of a stack depends on the rank of the first power, Strike the Despicable, as usual.

Iris is still a bit weaker than I would like her to be, but at least now she no longer breaks the game. And I would say that she will still be a force to be reckoned with, as long as you use powers consistently during combat. She is very much a DPS type, whose damage shines over a period of time rather than in a moment.

Hopefully, she will also be the type of mod that doesn't break MUA now. At this point, she should also be relatively safe to play alongside complex characters, such as Erik Lehnsherr's Mysterio mod.

I would like to announce that there won't be any new content for a little while. However, I will be releasing three new mods at once the next time I have new content ready, for the following characters: Erwin Arclight, Tenebris and Chii Aruel. Stay tuned, folks.

I put together a new update for my Haru Estia mod. The following changes were made:

-her 4th power, Whirl Blade, now travels a longer distance and more quickly, and knocks enemies back a shorter distance
-her sound files now have far more voiced lines, for her first power, Best Served Cold, as well as for her boosts and the typical scenarios such as choosing her during gameplay or defeating enemies

Post by: corvetterules on January 09, 2021, 04:08am
So I know it's kind of weird to come out with a new version like two days after the latest one, but I felt particularly inspired to mod recently, so this. I present to you the new version of my Haru Estia mod, V1.5. It features a second voice pack (.zsm and .zss files) and effects pack which more closely fit the DesireWorker skin. And yes, you can expect me to give the same treatment to my other mods as well (of the SoulWorker protagonists, so excluding Fuu Chan), on top of my next few mods (i.e. Erwin Arclight and Chii Aruel, Tenebris will not be counted for this).

I have made it so that these packs need you to overwrite the mod's files in order to be installed, in order to not make the powerstyle file too much for the game to process, and also because the alternate voice pack would not be fully possible otherwise. I have also made a small modification to the mod directory. In the effects folder, you will now see two subfolders: default and desire. Go for default to use the same effects as until now, and go for desire to use the new ones. The same is the case for the models folder and the sounds folder.

Here comes another update, this time for Jin Seipatsu. V1.2 is now officially released, and it features a new voice and effects pack to better fit the DesireWorker skin, just like the latest Haru Estia update.

The installation is exactly the same as with the first packs - just overwrite the effects files inside effects/char/jin_seipatsu inside your game directory with the effects files inside effects/desire/char/jin_seipatsu. And if you wish to go back to the default effects, they can be found inside effects/default/char/jin_seipatsu. Naturally, the same is the case for the voice pack - just overwrite sounds/eng/j/i/jin_v.zss and jin_m.zsm in the game directory with the same two files located in sounds/desire/eng/j/i.

Link: https://www.mediafire.com/file/8hahuj4hofo2lay/Jin_Seipatsu_V1.2.rar/file

I would also like to announce that there will be a video in the future which will serve as a showcase for these packs, all in one, after I have released my next three mods. Everyone will be able to refer to one single video on YouTube, with time stamps in the description, to see the showcases for all seven SoulWorker protagonist mods: Haru Estia, Lily Bloomerchen, Jin Seipatsu, Stella Unibell, Iris Yuma, Erwin Arclight and Chii Aruel.

Ready or not, here I come with the newest Lily Bloomerchen update, V1.3, which includes alternate voice and effects packs to better fit the DesireWorker skin.

In order to use the alternate voice pack, all you have to do is to take lily_v.zss and lily_m.zsm from sounds/desire/eng/l/i (inside the mod directory) and overwrite the same two files located inside sounds/eng/l/i in your game directory. If you wish to revert to the default voice pack, do the exact same thing except you take the files from sounds/default/eng/l/i.

The procedure for the effects pack is the same. Overwrite all the .xmlb effects files inside effects/char/lily_bloomerchen (inside the game directory) with the .xmlb effects files inside effects/desire/char/lily_bloomerchen (in the mod directory). Reverting back to the default effects can be done by overwriting the files in the same location in the game directory with the .xmlb effects files from effects/defaut/char/lily_bloomerchen.

Though I have to admit that this one doesn't make changes nearly as heavy to the feel of the character as Haru and Jin's packs did, I'm still rather satisfied with the outcome, given the material I had to work with and the fact that the good Lily and the bad Lily are not that different. I hope you enjoy this, and thank you for your continued interest in my work.

Please also make sure that you have overwritten the powerstyle file with the one from this newest update, as it contains changes necessary for the full implementation of the alternate voice and effects packs.

A new update for my Stella Unibell mod, V1.1, is fresh out of the oven and ready to be enjoyed. As was the case with my last few updates to my mods, this new update features an additional voice pack as well as an additional effects pack, both of which better fit Stella's villainous past self portrayed through the DesireWorker skin.

In order to switch between the two voice packs that are now available, you must take stel_v.zss and stel_m.zsm from sounds/default or desire/eng/s/t in your mod directory, and overwrite those same two files in sounds/eng/s/t in your game directory.

The procedure is the same for the effects packs - take the .xmlb files from effects/default or desire/char/stella_unibell in your mod directory and replace those same files in effects/char/stella_unibell in your game directory.

And I bet you thought that's all this update brings. But this time, we've got more to unpack than we did the last few times. I bring to you some fairly significant balance changes to Stella's first power and her boost.

-The damage dealt by Witch's Whim: Ravage and Instigate has been reduced by a third of its original value
-The bleed damage over time debuff applied by Witch's Whim: Ravage has been multiplied by 5
-The energy cost of Sorrow: Redeem and Curse has been cut in half, considering it's a bread and butter mechanic for Stella

In addition to this, I have made an alternate loading screen, also for the DesireWorker skin, named "25203 (alternate).igb" inside textures/loading. This loading screen lacks the messy red cracks that the original one has, however I am keeping that one in as well for those who prefer that. If you wish to switch between the two, just copy-paste the loading screen you want to use in textures/loading in your game directory and rename it to 25203.igb, overwriting the original.

A new update for the Iris Yuma mod, V1.1.5, is now up for grabs. It features an alternate voice pack which better fits the DesireWorker skin. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that she will get an effects pack as well, due to the very small difference between her normal skill effects and her DW form skill effects.

In order to switch between the two voice packs she now has, you need to overwrite sounds/eng/i/r/iris_v.zss and iris_m.zsm in your game directory with the same two files in sounds/default or desire/i/r in the mod directory.

Post by: corvetterules on February 27, 2021, 06:38pm
I know what I said, but down the line after I started working on him, I surpassed my own expectations and got way too excited to share this mod with the world. So everyone, while it's a bit early, welcome Tenebris, the legendary SoulWorker of justice, to the world of MUA!

BIOGRAPHY

Few are the people of Stair Second, the planet Earth of an alternate universe, so ignorant as to not know the name Tenebris, which belongs to one of the most important figures of mankind during the apocalyptic times wrought upon the world by the Great Void. Responsible for acts heroic as well as atrocious, his actions have had a significant impact on humanity's efforts to defend itself against the creatures seeking to consume it.

The story of this young man began with Grasscover Camp, a settlement created in the depths of the incomprehensibly large amalgamation of landscapes swallowed by the Void, founded by himself and his best friend, Ladi. The purpose of this place was to protect refugees and other such powerless people, with the help of SoulForcers and SoulWorkers, from the monsters roaming the vast bleakness. Among this alliance of defenders, Tenebris was the first and strongest SoulWorker, whose conviction came from the concept of justice.

The role of leader would already have been a stressful one to play, but that feeling was only amplified by the reality he was forced to face each day. Between the fear of death at the hands of some dreadful abomination, the worry for the survival of the people inhabiting Grasscover Camp and the newly emerging threat of humans driven insane with power by the Void's energies, known as DesireWorkers, though generally stoic, serious and rational, even Tenebris couldn't carry this burden all by himself. Were it not for a number of close confidants with whom he shared his worries and weaknesses, he surely would've given under that weight, and thus he would be unknowingly manipulated by Kant, creator of the Void in disguise, into a number of actions that would ultimately lead to the downfall of the settlement.

Eventually, the two founders would seek to bring in and rehabilitate DesireWorkers, with the viewpoint that they are not just inhumane murderers, but as much victims of the Void as anyone else. This decision was not without controversy, for it was known to all what evils such people were capable of committing while animalistically satisfying their own greed - even at the cost of human life. And thus were sown the seeds of internal conflict and in-fighting among those who inhabited Grasscover Camp, between those who were of the same opinion as Tenebris and Ladi and those who weren't. It would soon be revealed that the worries of those in opposition of this idea were not unfounded - a captured, young DesireWorker called Lily Bloomerchen would be responsible for killing a number of inhabitants from the inside during the rehabilitation effort.

The negative effect of this conflict would reach its peak when, one fateful night, the SoulForcer Erwin Arclight betrayed the settlement by freeing and running away with a captured DesireWorker, Haru Estia, believed to be dangerous, only to be seen again as lethal enemies maddened by Desire. In the wake of that incident, another SoulForcer by the name of Iris Yuma, known for being at the forefront of the initiative to condemn the rehabilitation of such people, exerted a powerful influence onto a significant portion of the inhabitants and left Grasscover Camp along with them, ultimately becoming a DesireWorker herself. To make matters worse, the founder Ladi disappeared, and was presumed dead.

As a result, this refugee shelter grew considerably weaker from having lost so many people and SoulForcers over such a short span of time, and the outside dangers became more difficult to deal with. Battered in spirit by this chain of unfortunate events, Tenebris began to doubt his sense of justice, holding it accountable for everything transpiring as it did, and consequently grew weaker. In the end, he abandoned his now former patience for DesireWorkers, convinced by Kant to "follow his own justice" instead of that of a man who is no longer with him.

To mark the end of his association with Grasscover Camp, Tenebris discovered the truth behind Kant and attempted to fight him, only to be kicked out of the Void-conquered landscape and into the outside world, which was significantly less affected. Awakened in this new part of the world, and with his memories lost, he became a member of a worldwide organization called Starry Forest League, founded to defend the world from the threat of the Void. Before long, he became famous across the world for protecting mankind from extreme dangers, the worthiest of note being the Golden Omen, a strange phenomenon brought by a powerful centaur-like creature which resulted in a portion of the world's skies turning gold, eroding the sanity of any affected by this influence.

But in spite of the infinite glory that came from his actions, a dissatisfaction plagued Tenebris, stemming from a belief that he and all other SoulForcers and SoulWorkers aligned with the Starry Forest League were being exploited and treated like tools. It was not long before this erupted into an effort to turn on the organization, in which all those like him joined, once he was sentenced to death on false grounds of treason after attempting to communicate with the Bashai. All of a sudden, the highly acclaimed Starry Forest League were in real danger of disappearing at the hands of their own greatest weapons, now the self-proclaimed Serenade Guild.

Finally, after countless crushing victories, Tenebris' resistance led them to the final frontier of the organization they once served - Grace City. But before they could seal their victory once and for all, they were without warning incinerated in an instant by a gigantic beam from the sky, courtesy of the divine being Roska. In an instant, every single member of this dreaded resistance had been wiped off the face of the earth, leaving the Starry Forest League in a state of confused but significant relief, and this incident would become known in history by the name of "Bitterly Wept the Stars".

But it was not the end for Tenebris. Though severely disfigured by the intense sun-like heat he was abruptly forced to body, enough for even the restorative properties of his existence as a SoulWorker to not fully heal him, and now pushed into a life of obscurity with nothing left, he came to see the experience as a wake-up call. In that moment, a new belief took roots in his heart - that justice is defined by the powerful. And so, in order to enforce his idea of justice, he became power-hungry, eventually turning into a DesireWorker and aligning with Kant and the Bashai of the Firestream Battalion, fully aware of what he has done.

To this day, Tenebris carries himself as a former hero and celebrity, in pursuit of the truest righteousness of all - the power to affect this world on a foundational level.


This mod features:

-two skins: SoulWorker and DesireWorker
-two loading screens
-three basic powers, one boost and one Xtreme
-generally a powerset which puts a heavy accent on basic attacks, with various effects from each combo
-two voice packs: a default one and one which better fits the DesireWorker skin
-lots of effects

In order to switch between voice packs, simply overwrite sounds/eng/t/e/tene_v.zss and tene_m.zsm inside the game directory with the same two files from sounds/default or desire/eng/t/e in the mod directory.

WARNING: This mod clashes with BliZZ's Punisher mod. Before you install this mod, please backup ui/models/mannequin/15801.igb as well as textures/loading/15801.igb and 15802.igb, and if you have the Punisher mod in your roster, remove him from it. Neglecting or failing to do so will result in unexpected issues.

Until then, have a good one. Corvette, taking off.

I'm afraid I'll have to disappoint the people who have been following my work, briefly. I decided it is best for now to take back the promise of Erwin Arclight and Chii Aruel being my next mods. Truth be told, as a modder, an infinity of ideas for the next mod will be on your mind, and your mood kind of swings from character to character. I think, when making mods, the mood to make a mod of a certain character is the best possible window of opportunity during which to develop said mod, because it'll turn out better in the end. In that spirit, I'm going to stop declaring that this or that mod is going to get made next. I am sorry to the people who were looking forward to Erwin and Chii, but I hope you can understand my decision. I just don't want to end up in a situation where I finally get around to a character mod after some time, and then my former mood to make them is suddenly gone. I'm going to end up making said mod anyway, and when I do, I want it to turn out as well as I can make it.

In spite of this, I hope you will still tune in to the content I put out over time and find something to enjoy in my characters mods. Until next time, my friends.

I have a small update for my Tenebris mod. The purpose of it is to fix some minor issues, as follows:

-Fixed an issue causing Tenebris not to play his usual idle animation during the briefing dialogue part of a simulator mission
-Fixed an issue causing Tenebris not to play the swimming idle animation in Atlantis levels and instead using his regular idle
-Fixed an issue causing the second power, Shredding Current, to cost way less energy than intended.
-Fixed an issue causing certain quotes not to play when using the default voice pack. Personally, I found that the quotes for the boost power, Justice, were not playing.

Hasn't been a long time since my official release of Tenebris, but I bring to you, regardless, the DesireWorker of Love, Lupan!

BIOGRAPHY

Lupan was among the humans who were unfortunate enough to be trapped inside the Great Void, a massive lump of alien energy which plunged Stair Second, the planet Earth of an alternate universe, into chaos without warning or reason. In an environment as dangerous as this, infested with terrible creatures with an appetite for all matter, organic or otherwise, any lone regular person would either fall prey to said creatures or be mentally ruined by the malevolent essence which defines the Void - Desire. She was of the latter type, as her greed for love drowned out all reason and humanity, even in this negative place, and empowered her with the ability to generate a weapon of her choice, the fencing blade, out of thin air, as well as vastly improved durability, stamina, strength, reflexes, agility and a healing factor.

After roaming the Void all alone for some time, she was eventually defeated and captured by a man named Tenebris, taken to a shelter called Grasscover Camp, in hopes of successfully rehabilitating her from her broken state of mind. At the time, the inhabitants of the camp regarded this idea with little more than scoffs and raised eyebrows, for DesireWorkers are murderous animals with no human traits other than their appearance and intelligence. Against all expectations, the actions of Tenebris and his friend and co-founder of the camp, Ladi, were seemingly successful, and Lupan was apparently cured of Desire's influence. She could once again walk among humans as one of them, untainted by this power... or so it was assumed. The truth was something else entirely.

Unbeknownst to all, perhaps even herself, the target of Lupan's greed simply changed. Seeing Tenebris' determination to restore this poor victim's soul, in spite of everyone else's ugly stares, proved to be touching to her very core, and thus she developed deep affectionate feelings for him. And yet she remained capable of rational thought and normal social interactions, in order to keep him close, thus attracting the suspicion of none. Mistaken for a SoulWorker henceforth, she fought bravely in defense of the people of Grasscover Camp, until its very end.

Though successful for a time, even this shelter could not withstand the countless dangers of the Void forever. Negativity crept inside the hearts of its members, giving birth to infighting, and the eventual fall of Grasscover Camp, from the inside out. With this chapter behind her, Lupan too had to move on, and after a long time, she found herself out of the Void, back into the outside world.

Little is known of her endeavors from this point on, except that she discovered that Tenebris, too, made it out of the Void, and was still alive along with Kant, the creator of the Void, fighting against humanity. Her greed for Tenebris withstood the test of time, and so, robbed of any capacity for rational thought, it led her to join the side against her own kind. At present, she is scoring victory after victory in their name, with no ambitions or aspirations other than those of the man she obsessively craves. The world may crumble around her, but for as long as he is next to her, hers will persist.


This mod features:

-one skin: DesireWorker
-4 basic powers
-1 debuff
-2 boosts
-1 Xtreme
-1 loading screen
-a mechanic which makes a power require the use of another power previously to be temporarily unlocked

WARNING: This mod clashes with Black Widow (vanilla). Before installing it, make sure to backup ui/models/mannequin/14801.igb and textures/loading/14801.igb, and remove her from your roster if she is there. Failing or neglecting to take these measures will result in issues.

Other than that, developing this mod has been a blast. I feel like I've realized my vision for the most part with this execution. I hope you enjoy playing with it, and that I'll see you again here, in my mod catalog, for my future mod releases.

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

Barely a few minutes passed, and already I need to release a new version to fix some bugs. Sorry about that.

Changes made with version 1.0.5 of the Lupan mod:

-drastically reduced the energy costs of Obsess to Impress and Love, they previously had such a high energy cost that they couldn't be used at early levels at all
-Lupan now has quotes for leveling up, which I forgot to take care of earlier. Took some of her quotes from Obsess to Impress. Voiceover material's quite scarce with this one.

I've put together a very important archive, containing effects files for all the mods currently in the catalog (at the time of writing this, everything from Haru Estia to Lupan) so that a major issue is fixed. Previously, people playing with these mods might've experienced a problem causing yellow and pink squares to replace the typical effect textures. I believe that to be fixed now.
