Experiences in Dead Island Riptide

Post  AKMARK5000 on Mon Jul 15, 2013 9:59 am

Dead Island Riptide is the supposed sequel to the first Dead Island (CLICK HERE).  At it's core, Dead Island Riptide is just more of the same Dead Island... a bit of a close nit continuation to be more exact. This is a good thing since I ran through the last half of the original Dead Island in coop and finished it.  I was left wanting more.  So enters Dead Island Riptide.

You can import your Dead Island character, which is nice.  However, only the character skills transfer and not the inventory weapons and other items, but hey, that is OK.  There is a new character added in addition to the four... I might start with the newly added character after continuing with my imported Purana character.

I found mods that are equivalent to the original Dead Island Mods.  One such mod is Ubtri's MOD for Dead Island Riptide v2.

This mod enables the player to run faster and jump higher.  It adds health regeneration and disables "Stamina Drain" and adds rainy weather and increases DoF.  It enables fast zombies and head-shots are required to kill zombies...

Keep in mind that this is Co-Op and VAC friendly... just make sure your friends are using the same mod.

Mod Download ==> http://www.moddb.com/mods/ubtris-mod-for-dead-island-riptide/downloads/ubtris-mod-for-dead-island-riptide-v2

The expanded YouTube page description read...

Weapons have been modified. Melee weapons no longer drain Stamina. Firearms hold more ammo in their clips, do improved damage and cost much less to purchase. The price of ammo has been reduced as well. The first two accessible shops now sell guns & ammo with a random rotation.

Zombies now move faster (World War Z, 28 Days/Weeks Later, DotD Remake feel), can sense you from twice the default distances, and no longer drown. More zombies will attack you at once, and they will even attack you when you are knocked down. It will require a HEADSHOT to kill a zombie. In addition, they will no longer attempt to grab you.
-------

"God Mode" - all characters regenerate any damage dealt. Must buy a skill to unlock. Explosions and falling damage (aka spike damage) will still hurt or kill you depending on your level. (If you do not want God Mode, then delete all files in the skills folder except the default file.)

Removed stamina cost for many things & general stamina usage.
Increased Stamina Regeneration (Not that it matters w/the removal of it's use.)

Fixed movement & mouse speed/lag/stutter.

Brawling (Kicking and punching) has more reach & does more damage!

Increased Fist Critical chance to 50%
Decreased the chance for fists to severe limbs.
Increased blood splatter effects.
Increased Break Door Effectiveness.
Increased Fury Point Gain.
Decreased Blunt Weapon Durability Loss.
Increased Blunt Weapon Critical Chance.
Decreased Melee Weapon Durability Loss.
Increased Melee Weapon Critical Chance.
Decreased Ranged Weapon Durability Loss.
Increased Ranged Weapon Critical Chance.
Decreased Bullet Weapon Durability Loss.
Increased Bullet Weapon Critical Chance.

Increased Med Pack Effectiveness (Not that it matters with "God Mode")

Removed the ability to drown when submerged in water!

Increased Movement speeds & Sprint speeds.
Increased Swim Speed.
Increased Jump Height.

Increased Max Ammo Carrying capacities to 999,999.

Increased DoF range. Made Fog less annoying.
Added Rainy weather.
Removed Refraction, Dust and other effects to cooperate with Rainy Weather.

Installs to your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\diriptide\D
­I\Data folder

Another nice mod is the George Romero Mod IV (George Romero Mod Version 9 Survival Horror Edition With Add-on 4).  As the mod's author says;

This standalone add-on that adds "Morality" mode and the "Greedy Shops" features. This contains all the previous fixes and features of the mod for your convenience.

The George Romero Riptide Mod was made in honor of George Romero, considered to be the "Father of Zombie Movies". This mod aims to replicate the behavior of the Romero zombies, which means that zombies are mostly slow and can only be killed by destroying the brain. There are also other optional features included in this mod to satisfy the cravings of Dead Island players.

The Walking Dead comics and tv series and even the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead are two very well loved horror entertainment that closely follow the Romero style of zombies. Since the mod also aims to give the players a survival horror experience, the fighting system has been customized and you also have other optional choices to suit your needs, like being able to play with modern fast zombies.


New Optional Features:

- "Morality" mode. There is only one way off the island and every survivor wants to leave. Everyone is ready to kill. Will you help those in need or will you use them as distractions for the zombies to feast on?

- "Greedy Shops". The people of the island are trying to take advantage of the zombie apocalypse by charging ridiculous prices for weapons of survival!

- "Blades and Roses" mode. The men and women have become paranoid! They are all over the place and they'll use their blades and rifles to kill you!

- "Exorcist" mode. The women have been possessed by demons! They will set you on fire! Beware, they are very creepy!

- "Gunner's Island" mode. The island has been taken over by gun crazy women! Experience Dead Island Riptide as a true first person shooter!

- "Lilliput" mode. The little people of Lilliput have been zombified! Beware these tiny flesh eaters!

- "Slashers" mode. The women have disappeared and the men have gone crazy due to loneliness. They will use their swords to slash you to pieces!

- "Ammo Loot" - the zombies have arrived and the entire place is a battlefield! Fortunately, the inhabitants seem to be lovers of guns and ammunition! Those who have become one of the undead still carry around some leftover ammo!

The original George Romero Mod V (George Romero Riptide Mod V5 All In One) remains functionally different.

This one has the same general elements and overall aim as the previously posted mod version 4, but has alternative features:

- Zombies can't drown anymore.
- Zombies can't hurt you while you're inside a vehicle.
- Drowners, Rams, Screamers, and other special zombies are now slower.
- Zombies now won't stay idle and they will hunt you down.
- Zombies are more active.

Digital Easter Eggs in video games are little hidden objects and references the game that can be directly, indirectly related to the presented storyline of the game... or totally unrelated Wink
