The original "Ghost Ship" will always be in my personal Top 3 when it comes to leoncj's projects, along with Episodes From Las Venturas and San Andreas Stories. Not only is it a good project on a technical level, it is also the first *real*, competent horror project made in DYOM that paved the way for numerous other designers. When news about the remaster initially broke, I was excited. We all know Lukas' designing level - he may not be the bestest ever, but his projects always win the crowd over.

 

"Ghost Ship: REMASTERED" is yet another win for leoncj in my books. If you remember and like the original work, you have to play this, it's an improvement in every aspect. We can see new features, such as moving cutscenes and objects, used as an upgrade over the original; mapping is improved; the atmosphere is still spooky and thrilling; the writing is improved; but of course the main talking point is the inclusion of sounds. The only thing that I don't agree with is the 'main theme' choice, which I feel doesn't fit the mood at all. Other than that, I like this very much. Hopefully, Lukas, you will finish this one (*cough*EFLV Remake*cough*).

 

Not giving this a rating for now.

In a way, playing this was a nostalgia trip for me. One of the most legendary horror projects that I have played, and this remastered version was just a huge improvement (normally) compared to the first one. New DYOM features really made it look more alive and gave it a ''creepy'' atmosphere. Moving objects and effects was just what this project needed.. and let's not forget the main thing, the soundtrack. The sound effects/soundtracks play main role in atmosphere when it comes to DYOM missions nowadays and this is not an exception. The soundtrack is awesome with all these scary horror sound effects that occur from time to time. It really makes you feel lost, along with new DYOM effects that just fulfill the creepy atmosphere even more. Of course, dialogues, objectives and the rest of details were also improved over the original MP. One of the things I liked the most from this mp was that 'portal' located in SA's interior dimension, made up with objects in the grey sky. All these sudden disappearances and appearances of objects, actors and scary sound effects in the area made it feel really awesome. Whether you are a fan of horror or not, you should try this MP out which I guarantee will give you some kind of 'satisfaction' feeling, plus it's rare for projects like this one to be found in the missions showroom nowadays.

 

Waiting for the the next chapter.

Brilliant. Really makes you appreciate the newest DYOM version even more. Projects like this show it best. DYOM 8.1 makes this mission pack at least 50% better than the original and the original version was already one of my favorite mission packs back in the day, so that is saying something. Good luck with the next chapter. :colgate:

@leoncj

I just played both chapters. They're awesome, and I'm hungry for more. The way you built the ghost world is simply jaw-dropping, and sudden appearances and disappearances of actors and objects made it all the more appealing and made it stick true to the wider theme of horror. Loved the missions so much.
 
Keep 'em coming! Bring it on!

I'm not a pro in reviewing so all I can say is, your Mission Pack can't be underestimated... magnanimous, real magnanimous! Story & the plot, sound effects they're all are perfect made! The gameplay was exciting! I learnt a lot of things of your master piece Mission Pack, I even played both chapters consecutively and waiting for more! I really enjoyed the plot, and the gameplay you made fits to be horror, good work! In some places the environment of the game was a little empty, if you place more object and make it creative that'll be great! For me, this Mission Pack is the best horror mission pack ever in DYOM, keep it up! :^:

Wonderful, unique and exciting, didnt expect any less. Yet the lack of reviews kinda puts things of how DYOM is at the moment in proper perspective.

I will always cherish the reviews/feedback from 8 Years ago.

 

And I will cherish the ones you give me now, so thank you to everyone who have played Chapter 1 and 2.

@Rytuklis @Jack Muller @RithRake24 @AnDReJ98 @Jimmy_Leppard @SatournFan !

 

This is why I am remastering this project, instead of remaking it from scratch. I want old DYOMers to revisit one of the best horror MPs I made in 2011 and NEW DYOMers to experience the MP in a new polished and better version.


I haven't dug into to the other chapters yet, but if I remember correctly, I had some crazy-ass boss fights made that were, according to the reviews, hard as hell.

I will try and keep some of the aspects of the bosses the same, but also edit them and make them more unique with the new DYOM features.

 

So stay tuned, everyone! ❤️

Just played Chapter 3, man. Just amazing:

 

Spoiler

Loved the ghost's flashbacks, you really start to feel that she's kind of innocent and stuff. The fights were really hard but epic. Those spray-can actors were so annoying, but they were quite necessary in my opinion, as without them the fights would have been too easy and definitely less memorable. The flashback sequence and the "ride" that the "Ghost" takes Chris on is done so cinematically and is very aesthetically pleasing.

 

And, by the way, Albert is the biggest effing dog.

 

By this time, you've got me, the player, feeling quite claustrophobic and trapped in the ship. The few scenes that take us out into the Verdant Meadows airfield really made me want Chris to return to the real human world, to what he (and I) is familiar with.


Also, the randomly appearing Ghost actors? Absolutely mind-blowing, brilliant idea.

 

Normal shooting missions can tend to be tedious so if you fail them once, you don't feel like playing them again since you have to play the first part of the mission again which you did pass. However that's not the case with your missions: The world is built so beautifully, the fight sequences are crafted so creatively, and the premise is so absolutely gripping that you definitely have to keep playing. There's always something new and unexpected in every chapter. It's kind of sad you don't generally see such creativity nowadays with other projects.

 

Thanks a lot for your remaster, @leoncj. Waiting for whatever you can throw at me next.

I have played chapter 2 and chapter 3. Basically, it was almost all what I was expecting it to be. Although some missions 'feel' short, looking at their statistics proved me wrong, most of the missions use greater part of DYOM's capacity which I have already expected but I still hoped for some more effects. Effects is the most significant thing when it comes to a horror mp in my opinion because it's all DYOM ever needed to make a mp like this look really atmospheric. I will still have to commend you for that one though, and for objects too even though some objects were static which I didn't like since they could've been movable as well. For example, when you need to open a door with keypad, after entering the code, door disappears which is really lame. It's a remaster project with V8 dammit and you acted like it was still V6, very lame. You may consider this as a minor con but it really bothered me despite being as minor as it seems, the same thing goes to elevator. Although you explained to me 'why' it couldn't be done, i'm pretty sure you could've moved things here and there and put the actual working elevator instead of using teleport objective. I have encountered similar things here and there but let's just skip to the main part of the deal.

 

Despite these 'minor' cons, atmosphere is generally very well done. Sometimes you forgot to put weather back to that black sky (or you didn't intend to?) but overall, these few effects that you've used including great usage of objects made it really feel like you are in some other world, a paranormal world I especially liked improvisations and difficulty such as when you need to press 'space' to prevent main character from falling down when she tries to 'break' him from the inside inside her world, or how you had to dodge moving walls/barriers when trying to catch up to her to beat her down. Then, actor's variety is purely awesome, from baseball bats to high accuracy guns and the most overpowered weapon, spray can. They even caught me off guard few times and I failed. I must say I really liked these details, it's a part of what makes this MP unique. A horde of enemies going towards you can't be compared to (for example) your mission pack survivors. Even though it's also one of your legendary MPs, gameplay was barely nothing than shooting hordes of zombies, while here, it's actually really interesting as you have a point that you must reach and fighting a horde ain't a main objective rather than just an add on that will make your difficulty harder. That's one of the reasons I really liked varied weapons within enemies's hands and that certainly included spray can, plus you are open to improvisation on how you want to defeat/avoid them.

 

Story is classic, liked it for the first time 8 years ago, and I still like it. Every mission feels special and progresses a lot, it's way to far from being boring and it makes you feel that you mustn't skip a single mission. Not many mps can achieve this. And since the most interesting 'story' part is coming in the next chapters, I guess i could leave it for then, especially the development of the characters that we have recently met. Oh and another 'minor' stuff that bothered me was CJ. I really don't like when somebody uses CJ (especially in his white tanktop and blue jeans default clothes since it can't be changed in DYOM). It looks way too weird and I wouldn't recommend it any time. I mean, besides all the characters that DYOM has, you chose CJ? Really? It kinda f*cked up my vibe, but it's just me haha.

 

Oh and finally since the beginning of the MP, all we did was running around the ship like dogs, well now it's finally time to see what is right and what is wrong and start going towards the real justice. Looking forward to see the ending.

 

P.S: Forgot to mention. While presentation is mostly good, please stop using moving cutscene going through objects. It looks really bad and amateurish. I pretty sure you can re-direct the cutscene so it does not go through an object.

@AnDReJ98 CJ’s skin for Tom worked me up at first too. But soon enough he became quite believable as the “young boy who survived”, due to his skin appearing much smaller, thinner and therefore younger than most other skins you can find in DYOM...

 

I remember reading somewhere that AnDReJ98 said that he rarely gets the time to go on his PC nowadays and play DYOM. At least @leoncj managed to get him to power up his PC once more...

After a while I downloaded San Andreas again to play the remastered version of Ghost Ship. I played a bit of the original version but I never got to finish it. As for my experience with the mission pack, it was fun. I agree with the others, the missions could have been a little longer, I think I managed to pass each mission in less than 10 minutes. What surprised me enough was how you managed to create an external world and the objects were used expectocularly. The fight with the ghost has impressed me a lot, I loved how you used objects in the fight as a weapon. I will continue waiting for the remaining chapters, meanwhile, good luck, buddy!

Thank you! ❤️

A little update, so I'll be releasing the EXTRA chapter first, before releasing the finale. Now the extra chapter will tell the story from Tom's perspective of what really happened in Ghost Ship.
As for the final chapter, I had a look into it and Jesus Chris almighty - that chapter in the original is a cringe-festival and short as my future.

I'll have to RE-WORK the WHOLE chapter, well except for the last mission as it was a very epic boss battle that I'm going to leave as it is, maybe improve it a bit and make it longer.
So stay tuned, because this is coming to an end and these two last chapters are going to be short so I'll be releasing them soon!


Oh and let's remember the original trailers that I had 8 years ago

 

 

 

And I used to be proud of these trailers 8 years ago! :D  (There's no sound in some points due to copyrighted music I used)
