Marvel Adventures Vol. 2 - New Release!!
« on: August 14, 2012, 02:32:42 AM »
Howdy folks, and welcome to the next iteration of Marvel Adventures!  This is Marvel Adventures Vol. 2, featuring a whole host of new characters and a brand-spanking new set of campaigns!  At long last I've finished all those final, niggling details, and I've got this behemoth released!  I can't stop using exclamation points!

*Ahem*

Sorry about that. 

This is a gigantic mod that encompasses large swaths of the Marvel comics universe.  It attempts to capture the classic feel of a large assortment of characters with new stories set during the heyday of such icons as Captain America, Thor, the X-Men, the Avengers, and the Fantastic Four, as well as a bevy of villains and guest stars.  You can face the villainous Hellfire Club as the X-Men, or struggle to save all of the nine realms as Thor and his allies.

So, what are you waiting for? Join the fight!

Download Marvel Adventures now!

Check out the Marvel Adventures album HERE!!

Campaigns:
  • The Avengers
  • Thor
  • The Fantastic Four
  • The X-Men
  • The X-Men 2
  • The Invaders
  • Iron Man
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • SHIELD
  • Spider-Man and the Marvel Knights


This mod is akin to my massive DC Universe According to Grey, though on a somewhat smaller scale.  You'll still find a very large mod here, with almost all of the classic heroes and classic villains of the Marvel Universe.  On the other hand, this mod embraces a similar design philosophy to the DCUG, not trying to completely capture any interpretation of the Marvel U., instead trying to create an idealized version, something of the best of all worlds, in my opinion.  It is most closely based on the Bronze Age, but I took liberties to clean up continuity or for the sake of the story I wanted to tell.

Keep in mind, not all of the campaigns tell complete stories, and all of these are intended to be expanded and continued.  In the future perhaps I'll add more, but the mod is also designed to give you everything you need to tell your own stories too!

Awesome preview, Benton! :thumbup:

I seriously cannot wait for this to come out, even if it's just the beta. I can't wait to see what you've come up with :D

Thanks for doing this, Benton. I've only downloaded a few mods in my years as part of the community, but I'm looking forward to this. It captures the era that I grew up with and am most familiar. I don't need all of the retconning and everyone being made uber over the past couple of decades. This should be fun. Let us know if you need some obscure, never been done characters for this thing.

Thanks for the enthusiasm and interest guys, it really helps me keep going with these types of projects. :D

I don't think so young man!  You will wash your hands before you touch my mod!  Haha, thanks CB!

It's my pleasure Hoss, and I know just what you mean.  There's something magical about the comics of that period.  I will definitely take you up on that when next I want to work in some obscure character that shows up in a story I read. :D

Thanks guys!  That's high praise. :D  I hope that it will not disappoint!

Just a heads up, I've posted a poll about the future of the MA mod, so if you're interested in Marvel characters and settings, head over there and let me know what you think.

Thanks guys!  The beginning of the semester and an unexpected visit from an old and dear friend have gotten me so busy I wasn't able to get this finished as I had hoped, but with any luck next week will prove more advantageous.

Alright, this is out to my tester.  On that note, only one person volunteered to test for me.  I'm really appreciative of his help, but I'm sort of disappointed that no-one else was willing to chip in.  Anyway, with any luck we're getting pretty close.

I must have missed it, too. I could have sworn a few people mentioned that they would help when you were ready, but I'm pretty sure that was a while ago when you first started. Anyway, I'm throwing my hat into the ring for helping out.

P.S. Did those meshes that I edited the weapon nodes for work for you? If not, let me know what issues you're still having.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate that!  Ohh, Hoss, those skopes were extremely helpful...but I'm not sure if I actually updated the mod with them yet!  Ha, I'll check on that and fix it if necessary.

Howdy guys, I'm back to work on this after taking a bit of a break.  I'm pretty close to ready, but I need a bit of help.  I'm trying to finish up the Robot Reserve for the Mandarin mission, but they are exhibiting the ghosting problem.  The usual Python script isn't working on this guy for some reason.  Can anyone fix the skin partition problem with Nifskope for me?

Hey guys, does anyone have the level.txt for Human Ton's Fantasy map?  As a matter of fact, does anyone have the HumanTonLayouts file?  Apparently I'm missing it.

Well, I found a work-around for the map, thankfully, but I've got bigger news....

It's done!  Haha!  Marvel Adventures is finished in terms of campaigns.  I'm going to add in some voice packs tomorrow, then I'm going to pack it up and release it.  I'm pretty excited, as this has been a larger project than I expected. :thumbup:

Well CB, that makes my day, man. :D

Guys, I could use some advice on voices.  I've downloaded VPMAX, but I'm looking to match voices with characters.  Some of the are easy enough, but some, not so much.  Which voices do y'all suggest for:

Volstag
Odin
Frost Giant
The Trapster
The Wizard
Sandman
Madam Medusa
Gorgon
Crystal
Triton
Mole Man
Human Torch I (Android)
Toro
Submariner
Baron Zemo
Red Skull
Master Man
Ant Man/Giant Man
Hercules
Black Knight
Wasp
Ronan the Accuser
Captain Marvel (Kree)
Captain Atlas
Dr. Minerva
Supremor
Shatterax
Sebastian Shaw
Donald Pierce
Harry Leland
Angel
Major Vance Astro
Charlie-27
Martinex
Yondu
Nikki
Starhawk
Guardian
Sasquatch

Alright, I've figured some out, but I could still use help on the others.

Alright, well I meant to have this out yesterday or today, but I got rather ridiculously sick in very short order.  I'm on the mend now (I hope), so I'll start things uploading, and with any luck, by tomorrow I'll have it released!
