I would like to introduce to you, Salvage Storm, a total conversion mod for Unreal Gold.
You may be asking why I am working on an engine that is almost 20 years old. The progress of making a single player mod from any game is common however for Unreal Gold, no one has done it. I’ve worked really hard learning how to make textures, maps and the unrealscript to get the game running free to deliver an entirely different story experience from Unreal Gold. I think there is room for that.
You can download a mod where I’ve created new code and run a program separately away from Unreal Gold which allows anyone to boot up custom maps in the new game tab. I’ve done it very user friendly way to allow players to boot up an entirely different story, with some sample maps using the Windows 95 styled task bar which was made for Unreal Gold. It doesn’t get in the way of the original code that allows Unreal Gold to run. It can be found here: http://www.moddb.com/mods/salvage-storm/downloads/cilent-menu-mod-demonstration
Here are some of the screens and movies so far from the development so far. Feel free to tell me what you think. I’ve currently been working on this for a year so far and I hope to push out a first part of my creative vision on the beginning of the year. I aim to release the mod taking advantage of the new game tabs, by releasing it as installments depending on the chapter. The first release will be the Prologue and Chapter 1.
I also keep an moddb page on the status and development of the mod here, if anyone wants to see: http://www.moddb.com/mods/salvage-storm
I’ll continue to post updates from time to time, but I wouldn’t mind coming back to this forum to show off some of the big stuff.
