A mod queston.
Alright, so I know that there are hundreds of campaign mods out there focusing with either the L4D1 team or L4D2, has anyone ever tried to make new survivors complete with voice acting? Such a project would take years, but not as long as HL2 mods with custom voices and stories. Or is it Valve's job to make new survivors? I do see a major difference between the modding community of L4D2 compared to that of HL2. And I would doubt anyone making a campaign with completely new survivors. One campaign of course only, added on to L4D2, just w/new survivors/voice acting.

Of course people can do model replacements along with names and survivor pictures, my main concern is just voice acting.

Wink, wink, L4D3.

Like make a mod, of a completely new game? New map, survivors, voice acting? 1 issue, if you change the voices and words, wouldn't that cause you to no longer play online with them?

Are you talking about doing a mod like what Black Mesa did with Half Life 2? Yes, that would take years because you'd be replacing most everything.

If that is the case, just wait for the 3rd game. lol.

All I wonder, is will the game still have l4d1 and l4d2 maps on the 3rd. I would love to see no mercy in better graphics. :)

I don't think anybody has made anything beyond just new character and enemy models. I think to do new voices would require a huge amount of time and would probably mess a lot of things up. Even if such a mod were to exist, I don't think you would be able to play with that mod activated online. Then again, I'm not a modder, so your guess is as good as mine.

The map Frozen has its own survivor team, but it sucks. No voice lines either.

Making such a Mod would be much more attractive if Valve had implemented the "Download from Server" system, which allows you to download "Missing" or New files required for gamemodes/campaigns.

Currently, with your idea, such a Mod would lose a lot of potential players simply because it'd require all the players to download it off another website before they could even start a lobby together, so it'd only work on a group of friends.

I'm not talking about a standalone mod that makes more of a game than an addon campaign. Besides, if people want to play with the same content as others, (playing campaign with friends), they'd download it anyway. I do see the point though, L4D2 only supports "replacing" stuff more than adding on something completely new. I do not plan to make a mod, I merely asked whether anyone has.

Like what they do for HL2, but of course, HL2 is a very modable game, and different to L4D.

You could make a new survivor with voices, but for each character there are at least 800 voice lines. Hell of a lot to plow through.
As far as I know, you can't add that survivor straight new, they'd have to replace an existing survivor.

There are a number of mods that allow you to change the model of the player characters.
If you wanted to create a completely new survivor, a lot of the work would be re-coding the menu system so show a 5th option of a new character.
The voice acting is a hefty bit of work but still easy to do. The coding is not as simple as the 4 main characters are implemented through the entire game and would be far more fiddlyt to edit.

I'm surprised to see you here. I played your mod, Deep Down, lol. Not part of the topic, what I just said, though.

Anyway...I think there's a way to get 5 survivors into the game, some way of cheating, I haven't tried really.
