greylands.freedomforceforever.com/ma.zip

This mod is akin to my massive DC Universe According to Grey, though on a much smaller scale.  I have not tried to capture the entire width and breadth of the Marvel Universe, just my favorite corners thereof.  You'll still find a very large mod here, with most of the classic heroes and many of the 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 I'll add a Spider-Man campaign, Dr. Strange, perhaps Captain Marvel, and others.
God Bless

This is just excellent BG! Thanks so much,  I love the idea that you have different campaigns but all using the same resources!
I've been playing the Avengers campaign and I really enjoy the storyline so far...I've never really read much about Mantis and Swordsman, so this was really welcome.  I've hit a bit of a snag though.

Thanks guys!  I'll post more later, but I've tracked down the bugs y'all found and am fixing them.  DM, you hit a missing map, Jimaras, you found some missing FX.  I'll have a patch ready by this afternoon.

Alright guys, you'll find the patch here:
http://greylands.freedomforceforever.com/ma_patch1.zip

So, basically I was missing a layout file in the mod folder, and a few of the FX as well.  Those should all be where they belong now.  Just drop that folder into your FFvTTR directory and say "yes" to all overwrite requests.

Welcome to the community Jimaras8!  Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate them quite a bit.  As for Spider-Man, that's a good question.  The short answer is, I simply didn't get to him.  I had relatively specific story ideas for all of the campaigns that I created, but I didn't have anything really great in mind for Spidey.  He's on my list, and he's at the top of it, as a matter of fact, for my first MA expansion.  For this release though, I just felt like it was time to put this behemoth out, and I simply hadn't gotten to 'ol Peter Parker yet.

Thanks DM!  It's not a direct retelling of those stories, so don't be surprised if you ever read something that doesn't jive with the story I wrote.  I really liked the Swordsman, and the set of tales surrounding the whole "Celestial Madonna' thing seemed like a tremendous example of wasted potential.  The tale Englehart told was just so out there and weird that I thought I'd try a DCUG-esq approach to it, and just rewrite the thing wholesale.  Some of the basic elements are the same, but the tone and themes, as well as most of the story, are completely different.
God Bless

Take all the time you need Benton :thumbup:! I see your point and i understandit,better a decent spidey campaign than a loosely made.I just reported it because i have a special connection to the webslinger.See it was the first comic i ever received and the one that shipped me to Marvel Universe.Anyway apart form nolstagic i want to inform alla of you guys that i may not have any modding or coding skills but i would be more than happy to playtest and mods you create.Its the least i can do :D

B, the only team base map (of my making) that I see in your missions folder is my X-base map in your list of missions, I don't see my Avengers base anywhere in there.  I'll send you the Avengers base map, if you want to put it in.

Best,

Dana

Sorry guys, I'm afraid sickness has slowed me down.  Yeah, I think I know what's going on.  I added the level.txt for that mission, but I forgot to include the terrain.  The level.txt is pointing to a terrain that isn't there.  I've uploaded a second patch that should fix the issue for good.  The patch is in the first post.

Yay!  The ending for the Avengers campaign felt a bit rushed to me because I was burning out when I got to it.  I hope that y'all will tell me what you think about it.

It was great Benton.really enjoyed it.I wont get itnto details for anyone to go through this.I have one question to you guys.I have found a really big bunch of skins a meshes for FF but i was wondering if it was possible to find complete heroes with abilities infused to them.I know this is tricky cause it needs animations custom fx and maybe custom attributes but as Benton knows i have a crush for Spidey and with his perimission of course i was wondering if i could add him to mod.Sorry if i scrached any taboo i am officialy a noob :D

Thanks Jimaras, I'm glad you enjoyed it! 

To answer your questions, you can find herofiles, FX packs, mesh packs, and skin packs, but you can't really find packs of pre-built characters with all of the above.  The closest you can come are large mods.  Traditionally the community has preferred to keep it that way so that folks will visit the artists' websites and so that the creators will generally have more control over how their work is used.  However, like I've always said, I'm happy for folks to use my mods as springboards for their own projects, so feel free to add Spidey and any other characters you like. 

Generally, the rule with FF content is you can do whatever you want as long as it is only for personal use.  If you're going to release or display it, you need permission from the folks who created it, and you need to be doing enough work on the finished product to make it more than just a repackaging of someone else's work.  Now, many folks give permission for their work to be used in mods right in their readme files.  Other than that, you can ask around, and there are lists of folks who have given permission for things like skoping and the like.  In the end, if you aren't sure, just ask the community and someone will be able to help you. :)
God Bless

Thanks for the reply Benton.So if i want to create a hero for personal use as i get it i dont have to ask for permission.If i want to publish him to the community i need authorization.Makes sense.
