A relatively new (to me) game on the market is Halo: Spartan Shields, and a huge amount of fans have been trying to get it modded by many different people. The mod has been featured on many different gaming websites and forums. Many fans are even asking if Microsoft can consider this type of modding as legitimate. I’ll have some information on that coming up.
Basically, the concept behind this is similar to what happened with mods for Team Fortress 2. There are a ton of creative types that like to make a lot of different levels and items in this game, and they have basically given up on the idea that there will ever be an official mod. Valve has stepped in to make sure that this type of thing can still happen, and has created a way for people to mod the game. So, now you can play a modded version of Halo on the HTC Explorer.
Now, I’m not sure if you’ve heard about this, but a lot of the games on the HTC Explorer can actually be modified. You can find a lot of different things in there, from skinning to fully customization of your character. However, the one thing that really bugged me about this game is that it didn’t have support for mods. Even looking through the files, I couldn’t see anything that would allow me to make my own tweaks or customizations.
I was pretty much just going to give up after that, so when I was informed about this program, I quickly downloaded it. It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. With a very short learning curve, I was able to start using the mod right away. One of the biggest differences I noticed with the Spartan Shields minecraft mod is that it supports both versions of the game.
This was pretty important for me, because I was playing the version that I love the most (Minecraft). With this mod installed, the difference between the two versions became very noticeable. Instead of being one of the last people on the server to get the resources and start getting some gold, I was one of the first ones to do so. Not only that, but since the minecraft mod actually adds a bunch of blocks to the game, there are actually quite a few new things that can be done.
One of my favorite things is having full control over the mobs that are attacking me. I was still having some problems with mobs not dropping any shields or arrows, but I think that this is going to be fixed in the future. The one problem that I did have with the mod is that the only mobs that drop leather at a high rate were the ones that were attacking me. As I said, I was having trouble collecting enough leather to build myself a complete shield set, so it was basically just better to use the wooden ones I already had than anything else. The next time I went into the forge, I was surprised to see that there were more blocks that fall under the category of “wood” than there were in the forge!
