Marvel Adventures Released!
« on: January 28, 2013, 02:41:47 PM »
It's done!  Welcome to Adventure in the Marvel Universe!   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!

And snag this patch as well:

Patch 1
Patch 2
Patch 3
Patch 4
Patch 5
This should take care of some missing FX, maps, and broken missions.  Just drop the patch folder into your FFvTTR directory and say “yes” to all overwrite requests.

Campaigns:
  • The Avengers
  • Thor
  • The Fantastic Four
  • The X-Men
  • The Invaders
  • Iron Man
  • Guardians of the Galaxy

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.

It took me a  couple of attempts to download this, so I didn't get a chance to go through any of the campaigns. But I went through the characters, what a selection. Very cool Benton.

Thanks CB, I hope it lives up to your expectations!  Please let me know if you've got any thoughts on balance or the like.  And don't forget to get the patch!  I've added a link in the first post here.

I'm definitely pleased with what I've played so far, I posted a small response in the Mods thread. Really impressed with the amount of work that you put into this, and I can't wait till I have time to go through all the campaigns.

FANTASTIC. Despite minor bugs and issues, this is a great mod. One thing, though--I'd like to see some roster expansions and to see some team gaps filled in. But, anyway, I'm loving this so far and I can see myself using this as my go-to Marvel mod, since your characters are so well-constructed, voiced, and varied.

it may seem a little vain and snobbish but still like this given the past of the whole idea, do hold an interest just to see what skinners make the cut for what characters

It's an all Cyber mod, every character skinned by me.  :thumbup:


































Just kidding, there's really a wide variety of content creators. I could copy and paste the read me file if you want.

Thanks guys, your support means a ton!  If you've got any thoughts on balance or portrayal, please share them!

TUE, I'm not entirely sure what you are saying there.  Haha, your post is a tad confusing.  If I'm reading it correctly, yeah, I've got a pretty wide variety of creators included here.  LP's work was particularly helpful, and he actually inspired some of the story choices I made with his great work on certain characters.  Grenadier is, I think, the most represented creator.  His huge output of awesome Marvel meshes helped keep me interested and working on this mod, though often forcing me to go back and change my own work. :P

DisruptiveMartian, thanks for the comments!  Have you noticed any bugs that haven't been reported yet?  If you'll let me know, I'll try to address them.  Who would you like to see included?  I'm definitely going to be returning to the Marvel Universe eventually, and while Spider-Man and a few others are already on my list for inclusion, I'm very much open to community suggestions about who they'd like to see.  Which gaps did you see in the teams?  Some characters were left out on purpose, but others may simply have been overlooked. ;)

Anyway, I'm sorry this has taken me so long, folks, but here is the third patch, which should make the Guardians of the Galaxy campaign playable and fix problems with the final mission of the Avengers mission, balance issues, keyframe issues, and a few other minor bugs.  It has taken me forever and a day, partially because I kept finding bugs.  Man, the GG campaign was riddled with them!  Also, I've just been rather distracted lately.  I found a few issues I couldn't fix.  For some reason Black Widow's multi-shot projectile power isn't working properly.  "Widow's Barrage" should fire three shots, but only fires one.  I can't figure out what's wrong, as the keys are correct and the power settings are correct.  If anyone figures it out, let me know!  The patch is available below.  Just download and drop the folder into your FFvTTR directory, overwriting everything.

My post was mainly about how I always find it interesting to see what some people have chosen as they're definitive version of the characters and what artists they sed in doing so.

Cool, I suppose I do something very similar when I see how other modders have built characters and the design choices they've made. :D
