The original Marathon weapons were not really designed with people in mind. They were designed to be effective against slow and stupid aliens that could not dodge shots and could not operate their weaponry while they were being blasted by the player. Human players are a bit more intelligent, and faster than that.
Note that this is not designed with monsters in mind!
This physics model addresses those changes and has undergone thorough balance testing during its development. Weapon switching delay is now nearly non-existant and random damage has been taken out of the game. Weapons that would normally never see action in an otherwise SPNKR filled multiplayer match can now go up against a SPNKR armed player under the right conditions.

Notes for version 1.5:
(more thorough changelog in readme)
- Speed increase of all regular bullets up to 4096.
- Alien Weapon is now a dual function with a regular primary trigger but secondary trigger set as chargeable long range high damage weapon
- The good old automatic KKV-7 SMG is back.
- Bug fix: Enforcers now use "unused 1" shot slot instead of Alien Weapon Blast so not to make them overpowered

Four of Diamonds 1.0
Crater Creator on Feb 4th 2013
This is a new, standalone release. The map is designed to support all gametypes: vanilla EMFH, KOTH, and KTMWTB; and CTF & Rugby via their respective netscripts. For the last two, download the appropriate script from right here on Simplici7y, select CTF or Rugby when gathering, and check the netscript checkbox and use the corresponding netscript as well. There is a small embedded lua script to deal with the multipurpose use of the ball, but that should all take care of itself behind the scenes.
This level is also the first release to utilize my EasyShade plugin for lighting. The screenshots for EasyShade were taken from this map.

Fort Roque 1.0.1
Crater Creator on Feb 4th 2013
I played a Call of Duty map that had a stair/bridge combination I thought was interesting. I loosely mimicked that structure and just sort of built things out from there. At this point the resemblance is gone, but I kept the style of an urban setting with buildings and structures positioned at regular angles.
I tried to put function over aesthetics, leaving all texturing/lighting/scenery/sounds until I was satisfied with the flow. The hill was not the initial focal point of the map, but as a player I like the variety provided by specific objectives like in KOTH, so I'm glad a natural hill area emerged. It may feel somewhat limited with no platforms, teleporters, or powerups; but I didn't want to throw everything and the kitchen sink into the same level.
Notes for version 1.0.1:
- reduced the shield recharger to a 1x. This seemed to be the most egregious flaw to the level.
I hate to bump this to the front page for such a minor change, so I waited until I was going to release something new anyway.

This plugin replaces some textures with those found in the Marathon 2 Preview.
The Marathon 2 Preview was released before the Marathon 2 Demo, and contains different textures, weapons and sprites than in the full game, and in some cases, the demo.
I highly recommend that you use Marathon 2 Textures with this plugin. Aleph One 1.0 also recommended.
-- Special Thanks to Hopper for converting the M2 Preview Shapes to Aleph One Format
For more info on the M2 Preview, check out the Marathon Story Page:
Check out Hopper's converted M2 Preview Shapes on the Pfhorums:
Any questions or comments? You can contact me on the Pfhorums.
Notes for version 2.2:
v2.1 to 2.2
- Ugh, texture 010 was incorrectly named after the Preview, in which it was bitmap 23. Corrected.
v2.0 to 2.1
- I'd forgotten to convert the new textures to DDS format. They should work properly now.
v1.0 to v2.0
Completely replaced all bitmaps, using Hopper's converted M2 Preview Shapes (The screenshot method was worth it :))
Added textures 002, 003, 027, and 029

This is a superplugin for AlephOne 1.0 that lets you easily enable all the hi-res sprites and textures from the XBLA version of Marathon: Durandal with one single click. All required graphics are inlcuded- just unzip the downloaded folder into your Marathon 2 plugins directory. In addition to that, some glow- and bumpmap textures have also been included to improve visual experience and take advantage of AOs new shader features. No custom shapes files are required for this to work. Separate plugins for monsters, wall textures and weapon sprites will be released by treellama.
Notes for version 1.1.1:
Please note that this plugin will NOT function properly with previous versions of AlephOne or Marathon Infinity.
WARNING! - there has been a problem with the previous download (player graphics were missing) - I strongly suggest to everybody who downloaded v1.1. to re-download fixed v1.1.1!

The Grab Bag 3.0
Nibenon on Jan 2nd 2012
A compilation of Ruben Rybnik's and my own maps, each with a specific gametype in mind. Remember, since both of us contributed, we can't review. I leave THAT to you. Really, REVIEW.
Notes for version 3.0:
I've added 6 more maps that were meant to be EMFH, etc. but were then expanded for survival. Ruben finally updated "Palace of Eru" and another map.
Reviews are always nice, even the occasional spite would be a change.
