Wuss Mode: Monsters Don't Attack

This addon renders nearly all enemies in the main story non-hostile during regular gameplay. Surprisingly, it completely changes the atmosphere of the game, often for the better, since the servants of the WAU quietly patrolling the abandoned halls of Pathos-2 have a chilling poignance to them. Puppets slowly stalk you through hallways instead of madly dashing for you, as if they are confused by your presence and don't know what to do with an intruder that shares their flesh and blood. Constructs beg you for structure gel, and angrily chastise you for not sharing, but they cannot take it from you, and as you walk by them, a cold chill overtakes you as you realize they will slowly starve in the inky black depths. Playing it is an incredibly surreal experience, and while I personally prefer the vanilla gameplay, I think for those with weaker countenances, this is certainly a worthwhile way to play. Perfect for wusses who can't take the scares but still want to experience the amazing story and atmosphere of SOMA!

Chase scenes will still happen, as they are necessary to advance the plot, and creatures of the abyss will still bite, but their damage has been reduced to zero.

Mega Link for GOG Users (Put folder in SOMA/Mods):!cAl0XLqD!t-xjenujnsG_RsyP8L7_H5VGN-tn7rLtFKBx_jon_UI

Alternate Mod Launcher if GOG ModLauncher is not working:

(Also, worst case scenario, if you're having issues and if the Mod Launcher isn't working, download the link above, back up SOMA/scripts, then copy the script folder into your SOMA directory. This will modify the behavior files in the main game, so no need for the mod launcher, just start it up and go.)

For those with a game in progress, to prevent having to start over, first run Soma once with the mod, then copy the files in ...\My Documents\My Games\Soma\Main\YourSteamID_randomnumbers

and paste them in ...\My Documents\My Games\Soma\MainWithAddons\randomnumbers\YourSteamID_randomnumbers

After that, load up a game with the mod activated and you should be good to go!

@Aniketos Drakon, It kind of does, leaves the chase bits in so you can still die there, and you never know when they'll come up... they're always there, watching... waiting...

I wish this mod made it a lot scarrier and tricked everyone :p

Thank you! I'm about to play this game because I love what I saw but I can't take horror all.

i'm just a wuss and played all the way through to Tau without it and I don't want to deal with anything else

Lol I love all the squirming in the comments to not label yourselves as wusses.

For ones with "could not find batch.addonbatch".
Possible cause: national letters in windows user name. Soma cannot handle this.
1) copy batch.addonbatch file from C:\Users\<your_windows_user_name>\AppData\Roaming\SOMAModLauncher\ into Soma game folder (default is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\SOMA")
2) launch soma with parameter:
Soma.exe -addonbatch batch.addonbatch

Exactly my point of vue too, while the monsters in Soma add some adrenalin times, they no longuer frighten me.
I just find them annoying and stressing ( I'm the kind who love to explore and read what i can in order to understandf the story)
And when you can't spend more than 5 min without being aggro by whatever they call them when you just want to understand the story, and have to rush through entire floor without understanding what you are doing, it's just demoralizing...

I don't recognize myself as a wuss, I can endure this level or horror, but I hate being disturbed while listening to an audio log ; )
