Because a somewhat deranged, tomb-desecrating millionaire mass-murderer (with boobs!) definitely fulfills the 'jagged' part, I've made the infamous Tomb Raider a recruitable mercenary. This is the same idea as with my Commander Shepard merc - a fully new merc with voice files from the games, complete with xml stuff and so on.



I've only used sound files from ROTTR. The 2013 release has the same file system, but somehow my file extractor doesn't work there, and I've had enough of surfing russian websites I don't understand. Older games have a different voice actress, so no to that.

Anyway, the ingame background would be that after two deeply traumatizing adventures in the pacific, Syria (how did that seem like a good idea in 2015?) and Siberia, and way too many skinned animals, butchered cult soldiers and destroyed UNESCO heritage sites, Lara took the next logical step and joined A.I.M.. Not for money though - her bio adressess that. It seems she has taken a liking to this lifestyle. Or is it perhaps just as a way to visit ancient ruins in remote, war-ridden countries all over the world? Who knows.

She is definitely a merc with good abilities, but also some drawbacks:
  • She is very good at anything involving movement (especially anything involving heights) and survival. This would be a merc that would do well in the country side.
  • However, she still hasn't had a formal military training. Her marksmanship isn't up-to-par (it's the easiest stat to raise though, and she is a good learner). Her background and personality (Intellectual) make her especially prone to suppression, and she is rather uncomfortable in cities. This is not a merc you'd put directly in the thickest of the fighting.
  • Because it fits my narrative (and because usable files weren't as many as I'd like), she is prone to... let's call it mood swings. Normally she's a rather well-spoken, timid person, but in combat she can easily unlock Buzz-like levels of shouting. This fits with her not being trained for combat and easily getting tense. Plus she's also a psycho.
  • Her traits are somewhat debatable. While Athleticism and Survival are rather definite, the third slot is rather open. I went for Ambidextrous here, as a nod to the older games. Auto Weapons, Heavy Weapons, Gunslinger, Hunter, Hand-to-Hand, Stealthy, Bodybuilding and Scouting could all be justified depending on your interpretation.
  • The gear kits are mostly inspired by games. The Survival kit (from the video) is a new one, which mostly fits the while 'survivor' vibe.
  • As Lara's interactions with people mostly consists of her murdering them in gruesome fashion (the whole 'It was self-defense!'-excuse gets a bit stale after arrow-murder #534)), it's not easy to make up any buddy-hate relationships. I've made Sidney her buddy, as he comes from the same social circles and could easily be a character from the games. She learns to like Ira - just like her, Ira got thrown into conflict in a foreign country without a clear idea of what happens, but the desire to help. And she hates Rev. While absolutely not against Gods and such, due to past events, she has a very strong dislike to loud, dishonest priests with a history of violence.
    If I had the 2013 files, I could likely also fashion relations to a random Doctor, Dyno (Whitman) and Sam (somewhat odd, as Sam in TR is a quirky damsel in distress, while Sam in JA is a grizzled old merc).
For obvious reasons this will not go into any official release - not part of 1.13 or anything. This is totally unrelated to 1.13. I just happen to occasionally dabble in there too. angel

For (my) convenience, this is bundled together with Cmdr. Shepard. You can get FemShep&TombRaider V1.3 here.

Saren threw his head back and screamed in impotent fury, before falling to his throne, head in his claws, trembling in horrified disbelief.

Then he heard a faint chime as Sovereign subscribed to her ECHO channel.

If you want, you can donate to me. This will not affect how and what I code, and I will not code specific features in return. I will be thankful though.

Question: what utility do you use to edit AIMBIOS.EDT? EDTMegaEditor will not open it since Shepard was added.

Well, as usually I didn't bother with that, because I can't draw heart

For the .edt files I used the CommieEdt editor. No idea why it won't open, though I've had my share of problems with all edt editors over the years.
It also seems that text of Shepard's last sound file (#145) is cut off, even when I re-add it. Apparently there is some file limit or so...? No idea.

No idea, really. Here's the link again: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AvoJWIsmOiaNgi8ASMcN-2iMkPpb
Though I also get no issues with older files and the same virus prompt as you. I have no idea why, as I uploaded the thing in the same way. Though I also get the option to skip the scan and download it anyway, so there is that.

Edit: Deleted and uploaded the thing several times, no change, though. speechless

I can't find the CommieEDT editor. Got a link?

Still can't DL Croft character -- no option to skip scan, just cancel - and that brings me back to the start. Must be some membership thing -- I'm not a member.

Membership doesn't seem to be the issue, I got an account (duh) and get the same crap.

In edmortimer Arulco Vocations there is alredy Lara Croft voice (Rachel Thorne), they are almost the same, is this a improved version or what?

In Ron Faces there is a face of Angelina Jolie and since she was the actress of Tomb Raider (2001) i thought it will be ok to use her portrait, well atleast i think it fit better than the IMP face.

Unfortunately in Ron faces was missing 33face, 65face and camo faces, but anyway if anyone want to try, here are the files to work with Flugente Lara Croft:

Hu? That's interesting, but no. This is from the 2015 game, different voice actress and all, entirely new made.

I know Ron's faces, but I personally don't like to use real-life photos, the style is to different for me. But thanks for the reminder.

Flugente's voice files for Lara Croft and my voice files for Rachel Thorne are two entirely independent creative processes. I listened to many of Lara's files and think they are sufficiently different (with a little tweaking) from Rachel Thorne's that I could use both characters. I noticed 3 voice files that were basically the same (but I didn't listen to all of Lara's files). But in Thorne's voice files I changed the pitch and tempo and other things from the original files, and I think Flugente kept the original. We both also were creating different characters -- so used different voice files. Rachel Thorne is loosely based on Aileen Wuornos, while Lara Croft is based on Lara Croft.

While (still) uploading UC-1.13 Exp7/RC1 thought I should drop by to mention that Urban Chaos has an Angelina Jolie graphic that seems to be more "Jagged Alliance 2" style. I may have to see if it is feasible to replace the current sounds next week when I return from travelling - Mod Squad used a copy of one of the IMP's for Jubilee in Urban Chaos (and if I remember correctly, in Deidranna Lives! they hacked in the IMP voice directly creating a mod specific bug).

More weapon features and upgrade options, via (mis)use of v1.13 for vanilla Arulco, Dedrianna Lives! and Urban Chaos campaigns.

New version is out. Not much new here - merely merged this to the current GameDir trunk (r2369) and moved all files to Data-1.13 to less confuse people.

Also, yes, I am still alive, in case that was in question ;)

Also, Microsoft OneDrive is a inefficient, needlessly obtuse piece of shit. As is usual nowadays, it lacks in core functionality (uploading files), but has apps, links to facebook, has an offensively useless online help and hogs more resources than an AAA game. In my personal humble opinion, the division that developed it needs to be shut down, razed, and the company grounds salted. I admit I might be a bit biased here.

You could probably say the same thing about Windows itself.
