    The point of this thread is to give projects and inspiration to modders and allowing users to request their mods all in one place, so that ideas can be shared built upon, collaborated and reserved.

    Any suggestions will be placed in this post. If you wish to claim an idea, PM me so that I can mark it as "in progress".
    (Any completed mods from this list will also be linked.)

    Ideas will be ordered by popularity (Likes. Good luck likeho's).

    All volt clientside mods should be there. And defender's "meltdown" is very nice

    when it comes to maps... We need to wait until we get more creations realeased.

    Great thread! sticky!

    You can put my Koncept HUD mod in there.

    I'm still waiting for numeric health/energy bars (if they are possible).

    Numeric bars ought to be possible. I mean, everything works with numbers in the first place, so proper scripting ought to do it. I'm working on something now, but I may look into that afterwards.

    EDIT: in-game mod loaders aren't possible so far as I know. Mods aren't loaded as the last thing when legions loads. They are somewhere in the middle and to load them at runtime would stick them at the end. I suppose doing this with certain ones might work, but I have serious doubts. If nothing else, the game would basically have to reload itself with the new settings which would be... interesting...

    EDIT 2: changing the ret on sniper zoom I'm certain is possible. It's actually a matter of switching frames in the same image just as you would with things like the cluster. You'd have to design a custom function in the sniperRifle.cs file, but I'm sure it could be done.

    Just to clear this up, this is a thread for suggesting NEW mods, not advertising old ones ;)
    (May add resorces for new modders later)

    Although, that being said, we do need a new mod "list".

    Well, I guess I could go ahead an put down Skin Selection. I did some basic coding on this already. I'm working on a little something atm that'll get me more aquainted with server/client communications so hopefully I'll be better off working on that after I finish. Unless someone else does the GUI for it, it'll just be console commands. For instance, typing printHeads(); into the console, it'll print out a list of the available heads. printSkins() will print the available skins. setHead(<loadout>,<head name>) and setSkin(<loadout>,<skin name>) will set which thing you so choose. saveSkins() will save the current options for Sentinel, OR, and Raider into a .txt which could be modified at any time. The code components are:

    • Handle console functions
    • Handle file I/O
    • Send data to server
    • Remove default skin selection
    • Receive data from clients (set to default colors if no data received)
    • Set players to chosen skins
    Without a GUI, I should be able to finish it myself (though help would be appreciated, probably from the Fallen Development team). If FD does it, we'll probably add a GUI in-game in addition to my rather blan looking console commands :p The thing I'm working on right now though (if you're not one of the few that already know what I'm doing now, you won't know until release) has highest priority though. Also, I'd like to do some additional work on my Status Pack and Legions Aero. Not to mention finishing LTS. I'm busy lol. If someone else would like to take up the task, that'd be nice. If not, I (and thus FD) will probably get around to it eventually.

    I'll be happy to work on a GUI for you. Especially if it will help get a much-desired feature like this out sooner. PM me details perhaps.

    3lionz - If you'd like to, go ahead and put down Legions Heavy as Mod = In Progress / Accepting Collaborators (under Client-Side Mods). Good idea to make this thread, by the way.

    legions heavy, as in higher graphics legions? Ive been working on making higher quality dts models myself, but I'm still experimenting. Starting off with a head (no animations) then moving on to a weapon (simple animations), then a full character (complicated animations). If you looking for ppl, sign me up as a model/artist guy,.

    :D Legions heavy is intended to make legions look nicer so yeah, dts goes into that category.

    Just an update, I have finished the console version of the skin selector. It allows you to play as whatever skin you want. Unfortunately, when you first spawn in a given game, you spawn as a randomly, but that's largely because of the engine and not my fault. When you first spawn in the game you don't spawn aside from gunner anyways, so it's not too bad. The skin selections are stored locally on a .txt file which has it's data uploaded by the client and stored in an array by the server.

    Hunted down some suggestions and updated the list to add the HUGE FRIGGING AMOUNT new core suggestions and server mod ideas.
    Quite a few goodies there :D

    Please never make me do that much formatting using a phone again.
    Keep the suggestions coming! Tell me if I have missed any new bits.

    Stealth Core: needs engine support
    Fog Core: could be done easily through modding
    Explosion Core: easy
    Dimension Core: not possible
    Berserk Core: not sure what this does
    Power Core: not possible without engine support
    Ghost Core: needs engine support
    Overcharge Core: probably feasible; if nothing else, could act as an auxiliary energy pool
    Anchor Core: needs engine support
    Recharge Core: easy but boring to use (I've done it)
    Link Core: needs engine support
    Reload Core: probably simple
    Wall Core: talk to defender

    Put those that need engine support in the deadpool for now.

    Dimension Core: lol I'm serious. It would be impossible.

    You would have to load every map at the start of the game else you'd be waiting for the new map to load. So impossible to do and be reasonable with it.
