This is a great mod.

That said it is also ridiculously, amazingly, frustratingly hard.

I'm only near the beginning fighting the security bots, but so far, I have 2 guys, they have anywhere from 3 to 10. They are better equipped than me. If I take too long to kill them more come. They can take more damage. They have more guns. They can fire at me offscreen where I can't see them.Get shot too much and your gun breaks, which means I have a choice between taking 2 assault rifles and 3 shotguns into battle or being able to move under the weight of my backpack. A direct point blank headshot to a bot does 20-30 damage. 2 or 3 pellets from a shotgun launched somewhere offscreen will turn me into a pile of bloody giblets. When there's too many enemies, I lag. When there's a Gatling turret, I lag. When I throw a grenade, I lag. Not only that, but the game has you ridiculously reliant on grenades, which are a total crapshoot. Throw them too hard and they break. Throw them not hard enough and they land in front of you and you roll the dice to see whether you dodge every single particle from the explosion because of your crouching abilities and the presence of a mangled corpse between you and the nade or you turn into a bloody pulp. Throw them just right and the enemy steps on them, shattering the grenade along with your hopes.

And if I make on tiny screw up, anywhere from 15 minutes to 50 are erased because I didn't exit and reenter the room.

This is a fun mod. It is an addicting mod. It is an amazing mod. It is the best mod I have ever seen for this game, or any for that matter. It is also an incredible way to lose 10 hours of your time trying to beat one room just so you can screw up 2 inches from victory and have to start the battle all over.

True, but this was released at the times of B27 (and I could complete every single quest) and since then bots bacame much stronger. Most of my older mods probably became unbeatable thanks to this. Have you tried playing on easy difficulty? It least it should decrease the number of enemies.

How do I change the difficulty once I'm ingame?

Open your save file in notepad and to get an easiest difficulty change those values:

PositiveIndex=1.5
NegativeIndex=0.5
DifficultyString=I'm too young to die
SkillPointsPerLevel=4
EnemiesPerWave=2
WaveInterval=420

Copy some faction file from Factions folder to use as a template, then change actors and weapons to whatever you want. You'll also need at least 5 actors with increasing toughness for RPG system.

Soldiers File


Mech File

... Bad luck whit (or with?) Weegees scenes... I dropped both folders to my Cortex Command folder (steam) and when I started this scene, it said GO! (or something like that, what ever this game says when a fight starts) and it was just a screen full of space... Nothing else, nothing!

What did I do wrong this time Weegee?
(Well at least I got that SHIELD story working! :D)
