I see that there is mod support for this game, but is there any easy place to find mods? Navigating the official forums is a nightmare.

Found couple links to Flare mods on official forum but apparently they're out of date and not compatible with latest flare version.

Nameless mod:


If the mods are no longer being developed, it'd be nice if they'd be merget with to flare as they have lot of additional assests (new monsters, icons, sounds etc.) that could be used to extend Flare's base game as well as future mods.

Had this installed for ages, never got around to play it until today. Lot of fun, tho not very long; it's like an elaborate demo (which it's supposed to be aswell afaik) so don't expect a 20 hour game.

It's not really meant to be a game. Its more of an open source engine. This 'game' is meant to be modded.

Best place to follow Flare development is probably project home page: Flarerpg.org

Last development update is from march 5th.

Desura version is outdated. As far as I can see the version offered by Desura both with client and direct download is 0.18 (don't know where you get the build 4 from) and, as you already noticed, the latest on developers site is 0.19 so you should download it from there instead. You can find the changelog for 0.19 here: Flarerpg.org

At least he's only memeber of the listed dev team but hasn't logged in for a year and his last comment is from over two years ago. On the other hand the above two news articles are writen by different people...
