[MOD] The Return of the Dark Lord

Post by HypnoToad » Tue Dec 06, 2016 1:24 am

I have worked on this for a while, it's a Dungeon Master like dungeon, where it starts off easy, follows pretty much a set path and gets progressively harder, I have tried to make it as interesting as I can and have incorporated things I call:

The Shooting Gallery
Fireworks level
Ghost Train level
Bottomless Pit
Target Shooting
Magic Elevator
etc

Four neophyte adventurers fall through a trap into a dungeon, there is no escape until they find and banish the Dark Lord, and he is waiting for them.

Did you upload it to Nexus?

Did you upload it to Steam Workshop?

Then you could have tracked how many people actually downloaded your mod :)

You don't have to worry if it's a good mod or not. Many people have different tastes.
And there are a lot of custom dungeons out there that are quite dull/boring yet they are on nexus/steam.

Always add plenty of screenshots showcasing the mod to peak the interest of people.
And try to describe why your mod stands out from the rest :)

Posting only 1 screenshot doesn't make me want to bother with downloading it in the first place, especially when nobody has replied for over 2 years. People generally don't like to waste their time.
I will try it out :)

Definitely upload to Nexus, and Steam, if you have the Steam version of LoG2.
Include interesting screenshots—that don't look like all the other mods. ;)

Also [IMO] mention the size of the file (175MB)

*AFAIK Nexus is completely free—they just hard-sell the premium version.

Well, it's no wonder nobody is going to bother replying even if they tried your mod.

I deleted your mod only 3 minutes in. And no I'm not even going to bother summing up all the reasons why.

I'll take it that you weren't keen on it. :mrgreen:

Let's just say, that the first level of the dungeon is about the same as the presentation is.

Tried your mod and found the coins but no clue how to evade the hidden teleporter at the corridor.
I thought there will be a destructible wall, but nothing.

So I can understand Pompidom´s reaction.
