"If I told you that Kingdom Hearts wasn't the best Action RPG on the Playstation 2, would you believe me?" ~Super Derek

Yes. Dark Cloud 2 was one of my childhood favourites, and to this day, I still replay the game on my PS2 for a quick blast of nostalgia. But then, I had an epiphany.

"What if I took my two favourite games, and merged them together?"

The outcome, though unfinished, is what you see before you today.

Welcome to the Dark Cloud 2 mod

This mod adds 109 unique weapons to the game, along with 14 new ores, dyed iron ingots, an actual use for Iron nuggets (Seriously, they're entirely useless), and 3 crappy biomes that will probably probably end up being removed when I figure out how to add randomly generated structures.

Now, before I get started showing you what this game adds, Let's talk about some FAQs.

 

Q: Wait, what is Dark Cloud 2?

A: Dark Cloud 2, also known as Dark Chronicle in Europe and Japan, is an Action JRPG Dungeon Crawler released for the Playstation 2 in 2003, and re-released as an HD port on the Playstation 4 in 2016. it was developed by LEVEL-5 as an indirect sequel to Dark Cloud, and featured may improvements upon the game's mechanics.

Q: Why is this game from 2003 relevant at all?

A: It's not. this is a fan project that I created to;
1) Pay tribute to (subjectively) one of the greatest games ever created, and
2) to get the name more out into the public. If LEVEL-5 sees its game is still popular, they may create the long awaited Dark Cloud 3 the fanbase has been waiting for.

Q: Where did you get the sprites?

A: The sprites were ripped from actual in-game sprites by Deviantart user darkcapilla.

Q: How did you make this mod?

A: Yes, I am answering a *totally* real question, and I'm not at all legally obliged to disclose that I created this mod using MCreator.

Q: Why do the Antique Sword, Sun Sword, and Big Bang all have 16 pixel sprites, whilst all other weapons have 30 pixel sprites?

A: This is because of the way the sprites are shaped in the actual game. All the 30x30 sprites I used were facing diagonally, with the exception of those three, which were facing vertically. Because of the way Paint.Net works, and because I'm too cheap for Photoshop (Something I wouldn't be if MCreator allowed me to make money off of this mod, something which I am legally not allowed to do) I couldn't rotate the sprites. Therefore, I used sprites I made over a year ago when I first thought of this mod. I may make an alternative to the mod where All the sprites I originally created are used in favour of the actual in game sprites if people want it. But if not, then I won't bother.

Q: What is 'Spheda?'

A; Spheda is a golf-like mini-game where, upon defeating every monster on a dungeon floor, a player may partake in. The object of Spheda is to fill in a Time Distortion with a Distortion Fragment using the Spheda clubs. There are more rules, however, I am currently not sure if it is possible to implement Spheda into Minecraft, at least not on my own.

 And finally, on to the content of the mod.


ORES

The game contains 14 ores, but the two important ones are:

Sunstone Ore



This ore is used to create a Sunstone Block, which is an essential part of the creation of Maximillian's Wrench's, Hammers, Spheda Clubs, and Guns.

Moonstone Ore



This ore is used to create a Moonstone Block, which is an essential part of the creation of Monica's Swords. (And soon, her armbands as well)

 BLOCKS

The mod contains 2 decorative blocks that are also used in smelting recipes.

Sunstone Block





The Sunstone Block is a decorative block that is acquired by smelting Sunstone Ore, and when smelted again, will give a Red Atlamillia.

Moonstone Block





The Moonstone Block is a Decorative block that is acquired by smelting Moonstone Ore, and when smelted again, will give a Blue Atlamillia

MISC. ITEMS

Red Atlamillia

The red Atlamillia is the stone that has chosen Max as it's wearer. This, however, is useless in it's current form. It requires Max's trademark gold pendant in order to be of any use. This item is obtained by smelting a Sunstone Block. This item, in the future, will harm the player when held, emulating the in-game lore, that someone whom the Atlamillia has not chosen, cannot touch it.

Max's Atlamillia

Max's Atlamillia, which can be used in every weapon Max uses, which includes Guns, Hammers, Wrenches, and Spheda Clubs, is one of the driving plot items in Dark Cloud 2. I plan on making this item wearable as well.

Blue Atlamillia

The Blue Atlamillia is the stone that has chosen Monica as it's wearer. This, however, is useless in it's current form. It requires Monica's trademark silver pendant in order to be of any use. This item is obtained by smelting a Moonstone Block. This item, in the future, will harm the player when held, emulating the in-game lore, that someone whom the Atlamillia has not chosen, cannot touch it.

Monica's Atlamillia



Monica's Atlamillia, which can be used in every weapon Monica uses, which includes Swords and Armbands, is one of the driving plot items in Dark Cloud 2. I plan on making this item wearable as well.
