Introduction


Hello and welcome everyone in the Project Thread of the Serious Sam HD Extended Project (the official project page, which is not the Moddb one, that is an imposter). In this thread you'll see the updates for this great project of mine. You can also feel free to comment, give ideas and whatnot.

Any help and feedback is appreciated!


What is it?


Serious Sam HD: Extended is a fan-made unofficial expansion pack for Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter. Originally seeking to properly merge The First Encounter, The Second Encounter and Legend of the Beast into a single story, with some changes to reflect the story of Serious Sam 3: BFE, the Extended project quickly outgrew its original ideas and now is planned to be a full-blown, game-sized superproject. After 2 years of development and many many delays, its first episode is about ready to be released, hopefully in August. Later episodes are planned to follow in the winter.


Contents of SSHD: Extended


The mod will be released in seven episodes to optimize its production and lower the workload and stress for the developers. Right now, I'm focusing on the First Encounter part of this project that will include:

- Merging the Legend of the Beast Campaign into the campaign.
- 21 new levels added to the Egypt Campaign. Due to these additions, the TFE part of the story was divided into three separate episodes.
- All episodes now start with an intro cutscene level, that expands the story and lore of the game. More emphasis will be placed on the events in SS3, what the Sirians did in Ancient Egypt, and revealing the mystery of why Sam meets no humans during his travels in the past.
- These intro cutscenes will be narrated.
- All episodes will have long Netricsa essays that tell the backstory and the events of SS3 in more detail. Some enemy info will also change to reflect on their counterparts in SS3.
- Expanded and remastered old levels, with new enemies here and there.
- Fixed the enemy spawn errors on the levels.
- Breakable pots, HOLY SHIT!!!!
- The project will come with a highly updated Ultimate Enemy Pack for SSHD. However, the pack will be updated episodically, so not every new enemy will be available when the first episode is released.
- A secret addition to the game, found at the middle point of Episode 2.
- Various minor fixes.


Plans about The Second Encounter


While it seems like a lot from the plans, this project will be not that hard to make. It's just seems large, because the point of the project is to make the game feel larger. This notion will continue into the Second Encounter part of the project as well, with greater emphasis.

- The episodes in TSE will get the same treatment as the TFE half. The intro cutscene level for Babylonia will be the TSE intro remade, just with a few changes so it fits more.
- The South America (now Mesoamerica) episode now switched places with the Persia (now Babylonia) episode, so it makes sense historically.
- There will be more emphasis on the story of the secret organization what we known as "Arc-el-Magi" from the last episode. There will be references to them in Part 1 as well, but I won't spoil that yet. There will be also notions of how the Sirians got to these other Ancient Cultures, and how they afflicted them and their culture. The South American episode will follow in the footsteps of a single Sirian's rise to glory and godhood.
- There will be new levels, normal and secret for all the episodes.
- The amount of normal levels in the Mesoamerican episode is uncertain because of a plan to make an Uncharted 2 like Train level. It may happen to be too hard to implement, and with that, the level may never be made.
- A new episode between Mesoamerica and Medieval Europe: Classical Japan.

Sounds quite epic, really. Wish you luck with it and the SS3 one! And hopefully, SSHD gets Official Level Edit too, would be a shame to see this project go in red probability.

It's not my choice to finish this project, I can finish it if the feature is released for the game.

Now that I have the time to calm down from the excitement, I would like to extend my talents as a composer as as an offer to help this project along. Just send me a PM and I can help on that end.

Knowing your work, I am honored. I originally asked Mongo for help, he made something, but haven't asked him about that for months now. If he's okay with it, I'll gladly accept your help!

There's a reason why I gave him the shades, even though I originally decided not to, but I can't tell you about that yet. One other reason was that he resembles the SS3 version better. It's a half-SS3 half-SSHD version and shows good continuity.

Alright. Hoping this doesn't take almost ten-twelve years like another "When It's Done" game...

This'll be a good game mod when it's done! Take your time, we can wait!

I could help you BFE-ing that shirt if you want

~Edit~

You may also want to retexture his shoes so that it looks like he's using the boots he uses in BFE. Just sayin'

Nope. It will be actually the BFE model that will have the TSE logo on the T-shirt. Also why change the shoes when he finds the classic shoes in SS3?
