After Cataclysm Core


Firstly I'll ask you - what brought you to From the Depths? Was it the sci-fi spaceships, or was it the massively detailed steel battleships of the World War era?

If it's the latter you've come to the right place. AFTER CATACLYSM is designed to accentuate your knowledge of realistic ship-building and combat simulation with just the right mix of historically themed weapons and realistic nautical decor to give your replicas and fictional warships enough authenticity to pass an Admiralty review.

Various FTD concepts come and go, but anchored in history are key naval technologies that have spearheaded the art and science of warfare since their conception a hundred years ago.

AFTER CATACLYSM allows you to learn the tools of the trade that allowed the battlewagons of history to be the best of their game. From stadiametric rangefinders to quad 40mm AA mounts, discover the hidden gems of history in detailed weapon models, period-authentic nautical terminology and yes, glorious hints of realism as far as the eye can see.

Realism-oriented builders in our community are often forced to create non-functioning aesthetic substitutes for features that would be crucial on a real sea-going vessel.

Marvel at the synchronized operation of our dedicated rudder system - physics enabled to generate turning force from spinblock motion, and fire spreads of deadly torpedoes with manual gyro angle offsets. If you've looked at a Torpedo Data Computer, you'll know what this means!

Even rebalanced with APS-derived ballistics performance, FTD's stock simple weapons deserves a chance to shine. With AFTER CATACLYSM's custom simple weapon scripting package, hundreds of historical deck-mounted ordnance can be simulated.

From Age of Sail carronades to water-cooled heavy machine guns, point defence may as well be an entire science in itself as you peruse our seasonal catalog of crew served weapons spanning multiple eras of naval warfare.

Having a ship look right, feel right, has been the undying motivation for every From the Depths shipbuilder since the beginning of time. AFTER CATACLYSM reduces, or even eliminates the need to substitute and jury rig decorative items for your personal ship.

Portholes, rudders, observation telescopes, cylindrical masts, bulwarks, railings and lifelines - even World War specification weapon systems allow you to create majestic and functional works of art that wouldn't look out of place in reality.

Advanced scripting capability, an efficient modelling pipeline, impeccable historical research and dedicated administrative and testing staff allowed AFTER CATACLYSM to be more than just a mod - it has its own community, its own following for tournaments and collaborative mod development.

There will be a lot more in store for AFTER CATACLYSM in the coming months and years. Be sure to check for updates on the FTD forums, where our PR team provides support, organizes tournaments, and ensures your questions will not go unanswered.

Will this mod ever be updated again. I played when most of it still worked and it was easily the best mod for FTD. I hope to see many of the new in game models actually work

The latest being next christmas. We're adding a lot of things, including a replacement for vanilla APS that acts more realistically, with shell handling rooms, shell hoists, magazines, gun rammers etc etc, as well as re-coding the simple weapons completely to add more fidelity.
