It's just the 4 stages of my game of Spore where I played as Cody. I don't quite remember why mouser sent it to me.

Here's a picture of both my mugs. Is it just production variance or are the new mugs slightly larger?

There had been talk about implementing random guns akin to the ones found in Borderlands for some time on the Datarealms fan forums. And with scripts being allowed to run on so called attachables in the game, it suddenly became a possibility. I basically thought to myself that it would be a fine project to start up after I grasped the basics of the scripting language Lua that Cortex Command uses.

When you buy the weapon in game the first thing it does is pick a body, a magazine, a barrel and a bullet type. Then it smacks them together, rolls up some stats and is ready to be used. It is able to generate 57750 different guns before applying the randomized stats. It also features some lua scripting on 5 of the 7 included projectile types that are inspired by the elemental effects in Borderlands.

Planned Features
I hope to include all the weapon types of Borderlands at some point. But I need more sprites for that to work. Something that I've been supplied with by people on the Datarealms fan forums.


Showcases some of the bullet effects

Large amount of generated guns


Unpack the Brolands.rte folder to the Cortex Command folder and it should automatically load the mod when the game is started.

Using the Application
It should then pop up under weapons in game. Just buy it and it will generate a random gun when it gets loaded in the game world. It might be difficult to spot as only the handle of the gun is actually visible in the shop menu in game.

Just remove the Brolands.rte from the Cortex Command folder. It shouldn't have affected anything in the base game.

Luck affects the quality of the guns a lot. Some of them are pretty decent while a lot of them are below average.

Known Issues
While the mod is basically feature complete. It is missing a buttload of polish and is pretty full of bugs. It is however working and the bugs aren't game breaking in anyway (The two worst are a single console error on creation that I can't track down and some effects not triggering nearly as often as they should). In the polish department the worst part is probably how messy the code is, but also how unbalanced the different modules are. I also haven't gotten around to making muzzle offsets for the barrels. But you hardly notice it anyway.

Cheers! Will try to not put off playing it!

Sounds nice, I really like the aesthetic of the bit.trip games. I haven't had time time really delve into them yet, something I hope to rectify, can has plz?

Stealth Bastard also looks pretty good, it's kind of action-stealth. Not the patient-calculated stealth people have been peddling so far

I believe so, I haven't actually tested it yet though as I haven't gotten around to doing the procedurally generated lightning effects I need afterwards.

Got some more work done on this. Shaping up to at least get a working release out in time for NANY. Done a bunch of scripts for the different bullet types so that they at least emulate the effects from Borderlands 2 slightly.
Does it count if it isn't finalized? I haven't done any other gun types than SMGs, which I did plan to do. But I need tons of graphic content to do so, and I am not able to produce it myself.

The game Cortex Command is a sandbox side scrolling shooter with pixel physics. I have set out to create a random gun generator for this game akin to what is found in the game Borderlands.

This will be done through the games Lua scripting implementation and a lot of sprites (that I have been supplied with by the community). I am already pretty far along and I have the basic script down that handles randomization. But, I still need to implement it for all the weapon types found in Borderlands as well as scripting some different effects for different projectile types.

Here's a picture of the current prototype, which is able to generate little over 40.000 different combinations, not including the different firing sounds they have.

The effects were pretty badass and the moral grey zones were really neat. I just felt that the story felt a bit flat and uninspired. But overall, pretty noice

Oh man, I sure am hyped for this. Anyone up for some early coop or do we want to get a grip of the game before attempting this?

Hilarious music video and terribly catchy k-pop. WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

Knights of Cydonia by Muse

Not only is the music fantastic, the music video is a hilariously great homage to spaghetti westerns.

Recently bought myself a preorder four pack of Torchlight 2 and with that came 4 copies of Torchlight 1. I've got at least one to spare, so if anyone is up for it. Just give me a call

Edit: Oh yeah, sent it to Ampa

Not much to say besides the song being pretty good and the video being a huge shoutout to old adventure games and consoles.

I don't think you can get a 4-pack if you already own the game. I might be wrong though

Daniel Ingram has done it again with Find A Pet Song from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

There is something pretty Disney about this song that just makes me love it.
