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): https:***#!cAl0XLqD!t-xjenujnsG_RsyP8L7_H5VGN-tn7rLtFKBx_jon_UI (Replace * with / )

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!

Do I need a mod launcher to use this, or is subscribing on the Workshop enough?

this mod has stopped most of the monsters chasing me, except for the scripted sequences of course - but they can still kill me if i get too close (my most recent death was the 'engine room' sequence)

The link to the mod folder for GOG users was removed. How can I get this mod?

gazoz, yeah the game is pretty tough, you cannot really tell when a monster sees you. It was totally different in Amnesia, I could tell how the monsters behaved. In Soma, I can't. Some monsters cannot hear you, but see very well. Others are supposedly blind, but hear very well.
