Now, before I get started showing you what this game adds, Let's talk about some FAQs.
Q: Wait, what is Dark Cloud 2?
A: Dark Cloud 2, also known as Dark Chronicle in Europe and Japan, is an Action JRPG Dungeon Crawler released for the Playstation 2 in 2003, and re-released as an HD port on the Playstation 4 in 2016. it was developed by LEVEL-5 as an indirect sequel to Dark Cloud, and featured may improvements upon the game's mechanics.
Q: Why is this game from 2003 relevant at all?
A: It's not. this is a fan project that I created to;
1) Pay tribute to (subjectively) one of the greatest games ever created, and
2) to get the name more out into the public. If LEVEL-5 sees its game is still popular, they may create the long awaited Dark Cloud 3 the fanbase has been waiting for.
Q: Where did you get the sprites?
A: The sprites were ripped from actual in-game sprites by Deviantart user darkcapilla.
Q: How did you make this mod?
A: Yes, I am answering a *totally* real question, and I'm not at all legally obliged to disclose that I created this mod using MCreator.
Q: Why do the Antique Sword, Sun Sword, and Big Bang all have 16 pixel sprites, whilst all other weapons have 30 pixel sprites?
A: This is because of the way the sprites are shaped in the actual game. All the 30x30 sprites I used were facing diagonally, with the exception of those three, which were facing vertically. Because of the way Paint.Net works, and because I'm too cheap for Photoshop (Something I wouldn't be if MCreator allowed me to make money off of this mod, something which I am legally not allowed to do) I couldn't rotate the sprites. Therefore, I used sprites I made over a year ago when I first thought of this mod. I may make an alternative to the mod where All the sprites I originally created are used in favour of the actual in game sprites if people want it. But if not, then I won't bother.
Q: What is 'Spheda?'
A; Spheda is a golf-like mini-game where, upon defeating every monster on a dungeon floor, a player may partake in. The object of Spheda is to fill in a Time Distortion with a Distortion Fragment using the Spheda clubs. There are more rules, however, I am currently not sure if it is possible to implement Spheda into Minecraft, at least not on my own.
And finally, on to the content of the mod.
The game contains 14 ores, but the two important ones are:
This ore is used to create a Sunstone Block, which is an essential part of the creation of Maximillian's Wrench's, Hammers, Spheda Clubs, and Guns.
This ore is used to create a Moonstone Block, which is an essential part of the creation of Monica's Swords. (And soon, her armbands as well)
The mod contains 2 decorative blocks that are also used in smelting recipes.
The Sunstone Block is a decorative block that is acquired by smelting Sunstone Ore, and when smelted again, will give a Red Atlamillia.
The Moonstone Block is a Decorative block that is acquired by smelting Moonstone Ore, and when smelted again, will give a Blue Atlamillia
The red Atlamillia is the stone that has chosen Max as it's wearer. This, however, is useless in it's current form. It requires Max's trademark gold pendant in order to be of any use. This item is obtained by smelting a Sunstone Block. This item, in the future, will harm the player when held, emulating the in-game lore, that someone whom the Atlamillia has not chosen, cannot touch it.
Max's Atlamillia, which can be used in every weapon Max uses, which includes Guns, Hammers, Wrenches, and Spheda Clubs, is one of the driving plot items in Dark Cloud 2. I plan on making this item wearable as well.
The Blue Atlamillia is the stone that has chosen Monica as it's wearer. This, however, is useless in it's current form. It requires Monica's trademark silver pendant in order to be of any use. This item is obtained by smelting a Moonstone Block. This item, in the future, will harm the player when held, emulating the in-game lore, that someone whom the Atlamillia has not chosen, cannot touch it.
Monica's Atlamillia, which can be used in every weapon Monica uses, which includes Swords and Armbands, is one of the driving plot items in Dark Cloud 2. I plan on making this item wearable as well.
At the end of every Dungeon, the key required to proceed to the next floor, is called a 'Gate Key.' I've added them into the game, and they're going to be used to travel to separate dimensions for each of the dungeons, rather than crappy biomes that exist now. Here are the recipes, whoich are used to make pointless aesthetic items.
Dyed Iron is an item that I've created, used in many, if not all of the recipes for creating the weapons in this mod. they're created by placing 1 dye, and one iron ingot.
Repair Powders are special powders used to restore your weapons WHP when crafted along with a damaged weapon
I mean, you COULD use it on a weapon with full WHP, but why?
Why would you do that?
Weapon Repair Powder: Used on Wrenches, Hammers, Spheda Clubs, and Swords
Gun Repair Powder: Used on Max's Guns
Armband repair powder is in the game, and can be crafted, but it's entirely useless because Armbands aren't in the mod yet.
Whoops, I forgot to add the recipes for new foods. lol
Note, this item uses the old bread on the top layer, however, because of a bug, the texture in game messes with regular Bread and Gunpowder
Other than that, here's the rest of the food.
