TSP is an effort to update and in some ways improve the old Borderlands maps for PC. The idea is to scale the original maps and increase the over all difficulty to post Knoxx levels and give the player base their beloved 2.5 back.

  • Enemies scale from 60-68
  • New Bosses added
  • Chests and Vending machines are being updated. New ones added.
  • Lockers, Skag Piles are being updated.
  • Boss weapon drops are being scaled.
  • A Chance encounters system has been added to some areas.
    • Chance encounters are areas where a mini-boss might spawn on the player(s) at any given time during a fight.
  • Vehicles from Knoxx have been implemented.
  • More enemy names and levels are added
  • All enemies are well balanced for all play styles
  • New Boss List
    • Supina - Dahl Headland
    • Illumis - Dahl Headland
    • Nimble Nicholas - Salt Flats
