[Island] Into The Wild v1.1.6 (NOT updated for ITB 1.2)

This mod has not been updated for ITB 1.2. For bug free experience, use with ITB 1.1 - otherwise use at your own risk.

I want to update it eventually, but I cannot promise anything.

Timelines are a funny thing. In the infinite expanse of possibility, there are branches in which things are... different. In some, this is as minor as slight variations in population. In others, the Vek attacked sooner, dropping the breachers into an already blighted world. In others, there is... Meridia.


Some quirk of geology or probability sees one island replaced by a verdant land of hostile beauty. An island in which the Vek take on new and unusual forms. An island in which all your training, all your instincts, must be reassessed. An island in which you must go...
    A modded mini-expansion by Djinn and Lemonymous.

Meridia is a brand new island, with brand new enemies, missions, and more! The island is green and lush, but the weather is harsh and unpredictable, the Vek strangely plant-like, and the missions tougher than ever. Luckily, you'll have help in the form of several powerful weapons - and once you've acclimatized yourself, even the weather can be turned against your foes!

Meridia is a tumultuous land, but people live out their lives even so. In saving this land, the Commander might face Geysers, Volcanic Vents, Flash Floods, High Winds, and more. Protect Convoys of trucks, defend Greenhouses, Hotels, Geothermal Plants, and protect planes until they can take off!

Meridia is not a military organization, but a scientific one... but that doesn't mean their tools can't be turned to devastating use!

For the first time ever, gain brand new modded achievements! Eight new challenges must be faced, one of which - when completed - unlocks a secret.

Additionally, using the API created in this mod, achievements can be added to other mods as well!
To check on status of Achievements, check under Mod Content and select Achievements.

Into the Wild 1.1.5 - requires mod loader to function.
Mod Loader - originally made by Cyberboy2000 and continued by kartoFlane.

1. Make sure Into the Breach is up to date.
2. Find your Into the Breach directory. If you are playing ITB under Steam, this directory can be found via Steam Library -> Right Click Into the Breach -> Properties -> Local Files -> Browse Local Files.

3. Scroll down to here, and follow the instructions there to install the mod loader.
4. Download this mod; open 'ITB-Into-The-Wild-master' and place the 'IntoTheWild' folder found there into the 'mods' folder in your ITB directory. (you don't need the licence/readme/etc as a normal user)

5. Run game, open Mod Content.
6. Enter Arrange Islands and choose four islands to be active during gameplay. Note that in order for Jessica Kern to appear in the final mission RST has been locked in place.
7. Restart the game in order to apply your changes.

Special thanks to:
Rusted for helping by writing dialog.
Mezzelo for adding even more dialog.
kartoFlane for modApiExt.
The ITB discord for being awesome!

Known incompatibilities:
Due to how the island is added to the game, mods that add missions can be incompatible depending on how the missions are added.
One way to make mission packs compatible with this mod is to use the library corpMissions.lua (Documentation within) found in /scripts in this mod.

Just opened it up to take a peek, was wondering: Are you interested in typo reports?
- Island CEO intro: "Your #squadname is certainly impressive..." should that be phrased a little different? "are" impressive? Or no "your"?
- Lahar Field CEO text: "...Vek does not appear to avoid the vents..."
- Dewy Hills CEO text: "A start of the art, green facility...
- Mission end dead: "Our motion sensors indicate reduced Vek activity. Region decontaminted."
- Mission plants.lua: "Vek resembling plants has been sighted in this region."
- Mission bugs.lua: "Vek resembling bugs has been sighted in this region."


More types:
- Multishot popup dialogue: "...hit tiles behind it's target..." (should be its, not it's)

It is impressive, definitely. This is a real Advanced Edition for ItB.

YES! This is exactly what this game needs. I got bored with repeating the same islands and missions. Now I can replay the game.
Thank you!

nice mod, I had a lot of fun.
However, I think "the Secret Plants" Squad will need to be supplemented a little.
It felt like I was running three Prime Mechs, so it was very difficult.
If I had the mech that a brute or range weapon, it would have been better to play.

But if you're lucky, it's not impossible to do 30K.
video :

The first upgrade of the mushroom Mech's weapon seems to require some adjustment.
I think it would be better if it worked for the burning "tile" as well as the burning "target."

Thank you for creating a great mode. :)

I'm just going to go ahead and guess that you've had a very bad experience with a very hot chilly before.

Two random comments/questions for you!

1. Have you thought about making the Flood Generator cost 3 cores, and/or about making it a specific class (probably Science)? I still haven't gotten to play ItW much (my failing), but from watching others' runs, the weapon seems...very powerful. Not only does it potentially kill 1-2 Vek outright, but all that water probably means another few easy kills later, plus it potentially cuts non-flying Vek off from a lot of buildings. I wasn't sure how much balance testing you've done, but I think I'd be a little sad to see this pop up in a run because it removes so much tension. (Another random thought would be having the waters recede after the turn?)

2. This one may be a kartoflane question, but did you discuss having the modloader's island select include a "random" option? Either a checkbox, or a "random" icon that could be dragged to the front of the line...I do hope to start including ItW in a lot of future runs, but I'm not looking forward to having to manually exclude 1 island each time. I would much rather be surprised. That would also fit the procedurally-generated feel of much of the game.
