Steam Workshop items for CS:GO, Dota 2, and TF2 now require Valve approval (Updated)
Mod submissions to the Steam Workshop now require Valve approval before they go live. The change, spotted this weekend by a user on the CS:GO subreddit, applies to new worskhop mods and updates to existing items, and Valve says the approval process should take "less than a day".
Update: Only Steam Workshop items for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and Team Fortress 2 will require approval from Valve moderators before they go live, a representative from the company has said. The new rules are designed to combat scammers promising "free skins" to anyone that subscribes to Workshop items, the representative said via email.
You can now play as Morrigan from Darkstalkers in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
Modder ‘thor777’ has released a pretty cool mod for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. As we all know, this game features vampires and demons and this latest mod allows you to play as the female demon from Darkstalkers, Morrigan.
Going into slightly more details, this mod replaces the default Miriam model with Morrigan Aensland from Capcom’s Darkstalkers series. Furthermore, the mod includes the Bloodstained Modders icon in the splash screen.
This mod works with thor777’s No Hats and No Boots mod (in order to have a clean look at Morrigan’s model). Moreover, main costume choices are now available (so you can change Morrigan’s colour).
In order to install this mod, you’ll have to create a folder named ~mods under BloodstainedRotNContentPaks. Then, you’ll simply have to extract Morrigan.pak into the “mods” folder. And that’s it.
>> You can get this mod from Nexus Mods.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Unreal Engine 4 fan remake looks stunning in these latest videos
CryZENx released new videos from his fan remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time in Unreal Engine 4. These new videos show the hyrule fields, as well as a New Main Menu. Moreover, CryZENx has added a new model for Saria, Gohma death and the Deku Tree death sequence.
The Witcher 3 Music Overhaul Mod released, adds 16 brand new songs
Modders ‘Ridog8’ and ‘Moahofer30’ released a pretty cool new mod for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, called The Witcher 3 Music Overhaul Project. As its title suggests, this project aims to overhaul the music of CD Projekt RED’s RPG.
Instead of replacing already existing music, this mod adds brand new songs to the game. The ultimate goal of the modders is to add a musical variety to The Witcher 3, and make it even more immersive and atmospheric.
Its latest version, version 1.1, adds 16 new songs in total. All these new tracks are for when exploring the game’s environments, and not for when engaging in combat.
>> Nexus Mods is the home of this mod.
Rebecca Chambers is now playable in Resident Evil 2 Remake thanks to this mod
Modder ‘Blabit’ has released a new mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake that allows you to play as Rebecca Chambers. Rebecca Chambers was one of the members in the first Resident Evil game, though she also appeared in other parts like Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil 6.
Her “custom” Resident Evil 2 Remake appearance is based on her Resident Evil 0 HD 3D model. This 3D character swapper supports both hair physics and facial animations. Furthermore, her outfit is based on this concept art.
>> This mod also comes from Nexus Mods, but you'll need FluffyQuack ‘s Mod Manager, to run it.
New video for Dino Crisis Remake in Unreal Engine 4 shows off Regina and raptors
Remember the Dino Crisis fan remake we reported a while back? Well, good news everyone as the team is still working on it (in other words, it has not received any C&D letter). Not only that, but Team Arklay has released a new video, showcasing the in-game 3D models for Regina and the raptors.
The Division, Just Cause 4 and Anthem can look like next-gen games thanks to Reshade & Ray Tracing
Reshade is a tool that can significantly improve the visuals of your games. Seriously, this is something that most PC gamers should be using. Why you may ask? But because it can make your current-gen games look like next-gen remasters.
MasterGames TV has shared three videos, showcasing Reshade (with Ray Tracing effects) in modern-day games like The Division, Just Cause 4 and Anthem. MasterGames TV used a lot of settings (not just Ray Tracing) and the end result is truly spectacular. So yeah, these visual enhancements are not just due to Ray/Path Tracing.
Play Sekiro as Krillin, the strongest man on Earth
Across hundreds of episodes of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, I think Krillin, Goku's best friend, has held a sword exactly once. He's also often a coward, almost always an idiot, and doesn't have a nose for some reason. Krillin is a world-class screw-up who somehow gets dragged into getting his ass kicked by super powerful aliens, which is why I love him. It's also why I love this mod for Sekiro that replaces your lethal warrior with this big dumb anime boy. He looks completely out of place, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
>> I strongly disagree with his comments on Krililn.
Modder brings Minecraft Earth mobs to PC, including a chicken that lays mushrooms
Augmented reality mobile game Minecraft Earth, currently in closed beta, will have a number of exclusive mobs, including a cow that creates dandelions wherever it walks and a chicken that lays mushrooms. They sound fun, and thanks to YouTuber Logdotzip you can now bring them to the PC version of the game by downloading a data pack.
My favorite of the four mobs is the moobloom, a bright yellow cow that leaves a trail of flowers behind it. With Logdotzip's data pack installed, you can create a moobloom by feeding dandelions to a regular cow. It looks fantastic. Shear or kill the moobloom to get a yellow petal, and if you stick eight petals in a crafting table you'll get a dandelion necklace, letting you match the cow's ability to spawn flowers with every step.
