Guardian
A mod for Descent 3

Getting Started

Installation: Guardian requires two things: the mod, and some compatible levels.
Installing the mod is easy. You download the mod and unzip the Guardian files into your Descent3 netgames folder. If you experience problems, make sure the mod files made it to the correct folder. If the mod files are not in the correct place, Descent 3 cannot find them.
Installing levels is just as easy. You download the level or mission and unzip it into your Descent3 missions folder. If you experience problems, make sure the level files made it to the correct folder. If the level files are not in the correct place, Descent 3 cannot find them.

Compatibility:Compatability is wide-ranging, fitting many levels and mission packs. Guardian has three modes of gameplay: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. The mod will automatically default to the highest mode supported by the level or mission you choose to play.
Basic mode will work with any CTF-compatible level or mission, for any number of teams. In Basic mode, each team has a goal room and an orb, but there are no repair rooms or cloaking bays.
Intermediate mode will function in any level or mission designed for the Entropy mod. This mode supports a maximum of two teams, and each team will have Repair Rooms in the exact places where Repair Bases are located when playing Entropy there. Refueling centers will NOT correspond to Entropy Energy Bases, but rather to normal refueling rooms as they function in CTF or Anarchy.
Advanced mode will only operate in levels and missions specifically optimized for Guardian, supporting up to as many teams as the level or mission allows for. In Advanced Mode, teams may or may not have Repair Rooms, and there may or may not be Guardian Rooms or Cloaking Bays, all depending on the level played.

NOTE: the gameplay rules are identical for each mode. The difference between them is the availability of special rooms, which affect the gameplay in various ways.
