Modding community for APB

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've seen a lot of offline games and even online ones that offer such freedom to their players so that they can start modding the games(GTA V, Cities Skylines, BeamNG.drive) and I believe that APB should do the same.

I am not suggesting mods for the online game, but a launch of an offline version of APB so that players can come up with ideas for the developers themselves and even help with certain projects.

Even more, if there are good modders, they might even get hired by LO to get APB to where you want to get it.

Being able to mod offline version will cause private online version

Hello

I have moved this topic to the Game Suggestions section.

I would love this idea. But for the reasons of it being a safe-house back up if APB ever goes offline, I'd love to just keep my characters and still derp about making symbols and clothing that no one will continue to ever see. 

 

Buuut to hijack this - why not let the community mod APB, but not in a crazy way like GTA/Skyrim. Why can't we contribute to APB's true customisation?

 

What I'm saying is, to me APB is about customisation and it has a ton and people do so much awesome work with what we have, but there's still more. 

 

For instance - let's say a small but sexy group of players wants to bring the REAL "Old Glory" into APB? but this stuff takes time and LO ain't got time for making what is essentially another "useless" reskin. But some would like to run around with Russia's second greatest gift to weaponry - so why not let the community out source this themselves and then submit it to LO for integration into the game. 

 

I'm talking simple reskins here - I'm not advocating people being able to import pistols that shoot nuclear missiles. I'm talking about picking a gun that's functionally similar to the gun you want in the game and then saying "Hey LO, I made this reskin for the N-SSW, how about it?" and then LO does it's due diligence to make sure it's all good and ports it in. They use the same stats and technical crap as existing assets, but they just look a little different to scratch that customisation itch some of us get.

 

We get a little bit of extra customisation and LO saves time on having to make it themselves and gets a tidy profit from ARMAS too. 

 

It doesn't have to end with guns too. 

 

There is a whole massive Wish List of non-combat related items we'd love to be added to the game. Some as simple as giving Cop Shirt to female characters, tiny things that only a small audience want but will still take time and effort on LO's behalf but if we can outsource this to the community, the boundaries of customisation are endless. 

 

Think Steam Workshop but for APB.

Should have been done years ago.

We would have  new maps and everything galore.There are lots of talented people who just enjoy doing it, let them and give them a little kickback.

  • GTA V has a singleplayer story mode; modding is only "allowed"/greyzoned for this mode only
  • Cities Skyline is a singleplayer sandbox building game
  • BeamNG.drive is a singleplayer sandbox simulation game

 

All the games that you mentioned are singleplayer games with sandboxish features. You are supposed to do shenanigans and have mods to support this.

 

APB, however, is a pure PvP game with a matchmaking system and modding is out of place here. And considering the currently low population, additional custom servers that allow mods wouldn't make any sense.

Arma 3 anyone?

Americas Army used to be great and did this. Then they updated the game and it's small map boredom now.

Original Battlefield was phenomenal and in many ways the series is a step backwards now.
