DRLA Extended is an addon mod for DRLA which adds several new classes, items, mechanics and more! The mod features no new weapons or monsters, and is designed to keep the spirit of DRLA intact while adding new ways to play and things to discover. The DRLA Monster Pack is optional but was designed around the adaptive difficulty of the pack.
DRLA Extended adds five new classes to the game:
Spoiler:Gizmos and Items
DRLA Extended adds new objects to the game world that can be interacted with to give the player new utility and rewards. They will usually spawn near secrets every 2-3 maps. Most will aid you on your run, but some of them may aid future runs and unlock new content! There are also new items that can be found in the wild that occasionally replace old items.
A new mechanic to help customize your build even more, familiars! Familiars will follow close to you and (usually) attack monsters who you target. Each one has a differnet kind of attack, and usually come with a unique ability. Some abilities are passive buffs, others change your attacks or even give you new abilities unique to DRLAX! Once you've unlocked a familiar, it is unlocked forever. If you can find a certain Gizmo, you can summon any familiar you've unlocked to take with you on your journey.
Options and Achievements
DRLA Extended has some extra options to customize the mod to your liking, as well as some optional bug fixes to the original DRLA (enabled by default). It also includes all the options from by blueprint mod, which allows the customization of when blueprints spawn and toggle which blueprints you've discovered. This is handy if you like to play with forced assembly learning enabled and wish to clear your known assemblies for each run.
You can also find Achievements in the options menu. They are tied to unlocking special familiars. Some of them will keep even the DRLA experts busy for a long time. Happy unlocking!
DRLA Extended 1.0 (beta)
- Read the in game PDA descriptions of the classes for more info and story! Sadly new content can't easily be added to the PDA easily unless I rewrite the whole thing (which I'm not prepared to do).
- Untested in multiplayer and other DRLA mods, try it out at your own risk!
- This mod uses zscript mostly for easier modding, but also to inject themselves into the game without the need to update tons and tons of DECORATE code. They will not be made compatible with non-zscript versions of (G)ZDoom.
- If you have cool ideas feel free to post them. If a mechanic sparks my imagination I might just add it!
