Wuss Mode (retired)

This mod is now retired, as SOMA's official Safe Mode is a massive improvement over this mod's content. I highly recommend you use Safe Mode instead.

If you began a save file in Wuss Mode and would like to continue playing, I'm working on a fix but it will likely take a while to implement.

My apologies for any delay, I highly recommend restarting in safe mode but I'll try to fix the issues with it as soon as possible.

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!

@ yyz, Z3RO, Adma

Looking into it, seems like there's a fundamental incompatability with information from Wuss Mode save files in that area and the newly updated map, make sure to hold onto a save file from before arriving at Omicron for when the fix is released.

I wonder if the dev is looking into this, it's been 24 days now. Hopefully it's just the holiday season that came up :-)

I'm having the same problem as Danforth and Pureknight. Love the mod, hope it's something that's fixable! :)

@Danforth and Pureknight, I can look into it during the weekend, definitely a new bug from the update.
Pureknight Dec 6, 2017 @ 7:51pm 
Hey, I'm having the same problem as Danforth. Wuss mode crashed outside Omicron, bypassed it in normal and can't get it working again. Any ideas? Thanks
Danforth Dec 4, 2017 @ 6:46pm 
Hey, love the mod but can't get it to work anymore. I kept experiencing a hard crash during the battery puzzle outside Omicron. I played past it using the unmodded game but now I can't get Wuss Mode to work again. Keep getting this error when I try to continue from the main menu: Any thoughts?

Yes I use the steam version. I looked into the Soma folder and I cant find the executable what leads to the mod menu. I use Win10 so yeah probably its win10 retardedness time again. Thx

@L-900 :epifox: Are you using Steam Workshop, or the Mega link? Also, have you tried running the addon launcher as an administrator?

Mod does not work for me for some reason. I get "Same error here. It says "Could not load AddOn batch file: C:/Users/i5"
While the folder should be i5-7600, I tried to make an i5 folder there with the batch file. did not worked.(also tried to relocate Soma to C:/)

Wish Alien:Isolation would have such a mod! Thank you!
