Hey Guys,

A couple of months ago I decided to mess around with modding for the Original Gothic. I created this mod, Somnus Suscitatio (translates as "Awakening from Sleep" in Latin). There are a couple of new features, including:

- A couple of new quests in the Old Camp, with new NPCs.
- Stat Bonuses upon joining a camp.
- Some new weapons.
- Changed Experience & Rewards for some Quests.
- Rebalanced Stats and Experience for a couple of the Monsters.
- Better textures for the New Camp Armors.

Unfortunately I didn't find much time to work on it, so I have left it in an unfinished state. I decided on releasing what I have made to see if you guys enjoy it. If the response is positive, I may decide to finish it :).

So, enjoy the Somnus Suscitatio Beta, and please let me know what you think :).

Korianous you scare me!! How many projects are you making at the same time? :eek: :p
however your prolific activity is really good for every fan of Gothic saga :dup:

I finished Gothic few months ago so I'll "test" this mod in the future.
I'm curious about the new textures and in particular about the quest and NPCs in New Camp, because it have already a lot of those things :)


P.S. some suggestions about the latin title (:cool:)

Somnus in Latin language was subject, so "from sleep" must be translated "somno"
"Suscitatio" in Latin means almost always "resurrection" and ancient Romans used instead "Excitatio" for awakening

Of course these are only pedantic clarifications :D

Think about the Staff of IK. §gnah

Just Kidding. ;) Everything's like sailing on hot butter.

Hey thanks :). This really didn't take me a huge amount of time. It's possible that I'll finish it eventually, but we'll try to focus on the Story Project for now :).

I picked the title as such because it sounded a bit more rhythmic. I believe it would translate then as "Sleeper Awaken?"

Maybe when it's finished, whenever I do complete it.



BTW:Where do i have to put it?

In your /data folder, within the Gothic1 directory, with all the other .vdf files.

Yeah, once Korianous gives the green light, I'll compile an installer.

Okay, perhaps I'll keep working on it then ;). I'm curious to hear people's thoughts on what I've done so far. I've decided to do a public beta. Unlike HoP, this will probably be the only one. Closed betas will begin soon, apply if interested.

Downloading it now... Keep up the good work.

btw, the sendspace server sucks. Why don't you use the World of Players upload option?

Sendspace is just convenient for me, no particular reason. I'll try and add a few more mirrors for the finished mod. Sound fair ;)?

Look, I don't like bitching about anything... It's just that sendspace isn't always available for all countries (like Greece, where I'm stationed). Personally, I had to wait 1 hour until I got a free download pass for the server. Not to mention that some of the files uploaded there are deleted after a few days (like the beta files of your Heights of Power mod).

A really good idea would be to use http://www.megaupload.com . It has good traffic, it's available to almost every part of the world, it's limit for free upload/download is 1GB (unlike rapidshare, which has a 200MB limit) and it's waiting time is 45 seconds (unlike rs and hotfile that have 15 minutes and filfactory, which has 1 hour)

And, in case anyone's been wondering, NO, they're not paying me to advertise! :lol:

Thanks for the tip :). When the full mod is released, I will likely use the WoP Service, but I'll remember MegaUpload next time as well.
