Omens: PTMC Vesta Covert Facility
So over the the past few weeks I’ve been putting together a new singleplayer (and multiplayer co-op) level for Descent 3 that will feature new enemies and weapons from OVERLOAD, re-created with permission from Revival Productions. Some of you may have seen the clips I posted in Discord when testing the weapons. This is something of a combination project that brings back an old level idea with a new set of mods together. Statistically, OMENS is one of the largest Descent 3 levels ever built – if not the largest ever built – but from a physical size perspective it’s probably about the 3rd or 4th largest after some of the Outrage levels. To wet your appetite, here are some screenshots:
The level will feature the following:
* A handful of new robots based on OVERLOAD, including several variations of each
* 12 weapons from OVERLOAD
* Two entirely new boss robots
* A custom soundtrack from Jerry Berlongieri and much more!
Omens brings a kind of classic Descent style back into Descent 3 with slow, bulky and tough enemies. It gets pretty hard on the higher difficulties.
I cannot make any promises, but the level is nearly complete and ready to ship, so expect to see it this month!July 3, 2018 at 11:53 am #18266Pyro-GXKickstarter BackerTopics: 6
Awesome! Can’t wait to play it.July 4, 2018 at 12:36 pm #18269
Yes!!!August 2, 2018 at 8:43 pm #18677
The level is now available!
Grab it at Descent 3 Sector: https://sectorgame.com/d3/downloads/?nav=display&file=880
Or at MODDB: https://www.moddb.com/mods/omens
Fair warning: You may need up to 2 hours to play through the entire level, if you want to find everything! Savegames do *not* work.
Currently this level only works with the GOG version of D3. I will work on a fix.
Edit: Crash should be fixed now on CD versions. Simply DL the level again.August 5, 2018 at 10:47 pm #18685defconxKickstarter BackerTopics: 17
Always love seeing your new D3 projects — truly awesome Hunter!
Must eventually get all the Ds working again …August 6, 2018 at 1:29 am #18688
Thanks! I’m going to be patching this shortly as it turned out a little darker than I realized. Expect an update soon..August 6, 2018 at 5:02 pm #18689
OK, update applied. Simply DL the level again.August 18, 2018 at 8:41 am #18758
Is there energy centers somewhere? I’m currently stuck at a pretty early phase of the level.August 18, 2018 at 6:36 pm #18759
Where are you stuck?
(Did you destroy the crashed ship for the master key?)
There’s none in the cargo areas. Look for discreet powerups and crates for energy (turrets drop them too)August 19, 2018 at 5:01 pm #18761
Oh, I found that one crashed phoenix ship, noting it would be a classic to hide the key there, but it dropped nothing. Maybe a different ship.August 19, 2018 at 6:52 pm #18762
What you want is in the cargobay 2 area, you just have to get there first.
