Marathon 1 Redux 0.0.11-alpha

liacrow on Jul 10th 2018

Biggergunsnearby_0053

Latest releases now on Github: https://github.com/ravenshining/M1R

A project to give Marathon 1 a facelift, incorporating the new features of Aleph One to flesh out and add realism to the Marathon's architecture. Eventually, to include a branching storyline- possibly even missions on the colony moon.

Featuring Marathon 1 with liquids, ambient sound, new weapons, more scenery, improved sprites, expanded architecture, new terms & terminal art, the latest HD plugins. Also including Craig Hardgrove's soundtrack, you can visit his page over at themarathonmusic.com !

Although it is now a playable scenario, I still consider this an Alpha release for development and testing, but at this stage you may find it more entertaining than and almost as complete as M1A1. To contribute to this project, download it and read the "Help Wanted.txt" and/or TODO.txt," or head over to the Pfhorums where the lists and discussion are posted: http://pfhorums.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=53510

Notes for version 0.0.11-alpha:

At this point, M1R is playable through to the end in the canonical level sequence! There will undoubtedly be bugs along the way, the biggest of which is that M2/M? Rescue missions are not yet supported in Aleph One.

Please note that if you command-option- or control-shift- begin new game, only (most of) levels 1-37 are playable. Levels 39-99 are redundancies for the planned branching storyline, and do not yet have physics, terminals, or MML.

Redux now features netmaps! Levels 101-119 include all of Bungie's M1 netmaps, M? Jjaro netmaps, and two M? lava netmaps I happen to have converted.

For the Simplici7y release, I've zipped the source folders for the map and images so you don't have a gigantic list of levels in your Environment preferences, and zipped up all the plugins to save space.

Now that this is a near-complete replacement for M1A1 that has grown to 245MB in size, I might be updating Simplici7y less often. You can still find the latest updates and releases on the GitHub site listed above.

Upscaled Weapons for M1 1.0

Flippant Sol on Jul 4th 2018

16

A similar scaled texture pack as "xBR Monsters for M1", but this is for M1's weapons and the algorithm is slightly different.

I would recommend leaving linear filtering on to smooth out the textures.

Notes for version 1.0:

Shouldn't be any incompatibilities with other plugins.

Marathon Music Remasterd 2.0

Screen_shot_2015-06-29_at_2

The music that is shipped with the Marathon release is based off of the classic Quicktime synth. This is the fed through fluidsynth which utilized a modern sample set — in this case, Don Allen's Timbres of Heaven. All tracks have been normalized and made working for in-game.

To install, simply replace the Music folder within the Marathon data folder

Notes for version 2.0:

-A new attempt utilizing Timbers of Heaven 3.4 and the latest fluidsynth.

fixed missing track 14

Flippant Sol on Nov 19th 2017

21

Marathon 1 monster textures at 16x the original resolution using xBR scaling. Includes marine textures and every color palette.

Credits:

  • General Tacticus, who helped me index M1's original shapes file
  • Treellama, who helped me use Aorta to remove blue from the textures
  • Hawkynt, who created the program that could batch upscale 2,602 textures, and
  • Hyllian, who created the xBR 4x scaling algorithm
Notes for version 1.3:
  • Added some missing textures
  • Reverted back to original algorithm
  • Quality-of-life improvements

3D scenery for M1 1.2

General Tacticus on Nov 16th 2017

Dish_screen

Replaces the 2d scenery sprites with 3d models in Marathon 1

Note: works best in shader mode.

Make sure bloom is turned off!

Obviously some errors can't be avoided, but I have done my best to smooth over as many bumps as possible.

Notes for version 1.2:

-Replaced the escape pod model with a much better one

-Changed the pfhor egg to be more like the original (an egg)

Marathon over Tau Ceti E-I Landscape Texture 8192x3072 3.0

liacrow on Sep 17th 2017

G4sunbathing_0004

This 360° wrap-around starscape replacement shows the stars as they would appear in the Tau Ceti system on July 3, 2794 at 0839 UTC, as well as a few local objects likely to be visible.

The stars, colony, and positions of planets have been rendered by Celestia, the open-source universe explorer. Using data on the planets known to be orbiting Tau Ceti, I made a few tweaks within real parameters to make things more comfy for our Martian colonists.

Remember the pink-brown planet from the Pfhor chapter screen? It's now an ice giant around which the colony orbits. Or is it a water giant? Celestia says it's 40F up there. Whatever, it's like Uranus, execpt smaller, warmer, and not sideways.

The huge blue planet is the colony moon, 1300 km below. I tried to put the Marathon in as high an orbit as possible while still being close enough to be an easily reached space station.

You can easily find Sol in the screen shot from G4 Sunbathing. It's just above and to the left of the right gantryway, or just below and to the right of Arcturus, slightly brighter than the surrounding stars.

On Marathon levels, your point of view will be from the Marathon's surface. The Scoutship will be part of the backdrop, while the scenery item is replaced by the unused slave transport sprite. On Pfhor levels, you view from an alien ship surface, and the Marathon sprite has been enhanced.

Software used: 1 - Gravitation to find a stable orbit for the moon, 2 - Celestia to produce renders, 3 -Hugin to stitch them together into a panorama, 4 - GIMP for postprocessing and Marathon's surface texturing.

To install, please drop the zip file into your appropriate plugins folder. Also, make sure that in Preferences > Graphics > Rendering Options, that "Replacement Texture Quality" for Landscapes is set to "Unlimited."

Notes for version 3.0:

-New landscape for Pfhor levels -Corrected star orientation on Pfhor levels -Removed floating Marathon logo -Restored & enhanced Marathon sprite -Shortened plugin UI name -Fixed Windows compatibility (I hope)
