"After one and a half years of work we are ready to officially introduce you this addon. For a long time we've been thinking of how to preserve the atmosphere of this game loved by all of us, but at the same time to extend the existing limits, bring up new gameplay and experience. This time we've gone far beyond simple fan map-making and are going to prove to you that Blood is not this hopeless even without source code. From the beginning BAITD was aimed at expanding gameplay, it can't be limited by common gameplay borders, so here you're going to see a lot of new features. This is new BAITD, so don't compare it to the previous versions and, more importantly, to other people's addons."--NoOne aka Diman

Alone in the Dark is a Blood modification that has been released in several iterations between 2006 and 2016, first as a trilogy, and then "new" and "final" versions. Inspired by the mansion in the influential survival horror computer game of the same name, the maps are also known for their heavy amount of new artwork, voxels and assets modifications; including the packaging in of the the author's Weapons Mod and Voxel Pack.

"Just like the name states, it's a modification for Blood which allows using custom weapons. From revolvers to new bloody shotguns! Of course since Blood's modding is limited, the mod only allows replacing current weapons, but aren't you bored playing the same weapons for years? Maybe you want to play fun mode by installing Triple DZ or maybe Hardcore mode by choosing PowerSlaver revolver? The choice is yours! DosBox is recommended to play this mod, but BloodGDX supports this mod too, since GDX uses BLOOD.RFF and SOUND.RFF. Sadly, some hacks will not work since GDX does not use Blood.exe. Nevertheless it's possible to use custom weapons too."--NoOne

The Weapons Mod mostly replaces weapons with their Blood Alpha versions, save for the Tommy Gun which gets replaced with the Riot Shotgun from Shadow Warrior and the inclusion of the twin pistols from PowerSlave (Exhumed) over the Tommy Gun. It was released on November 17, 2012, and features an batch file to allow for the installation of each particular weapon (noting that the alpha and riot shotguns are mutually exclusive). It was packaged with Final Alone in the Dark.

The mod was later reissued as a version 1.2. It changed the double revolver into a single revolver, as well as other slight tweaks to their characteristics. Version 1.3 added tweaks to the Life Leech. A version 2.0 was later released on September 16, 2016 that brought the roster up to 12. All versions were made by NoOne (aka Dimon), and a version is included with the New Alone in the Dark modification. Version 3.0 was released on September 6, 2017, with assistance by Dzierzan, bringing the roster up to 18. It presently has limited compatibility with BloodGDX.
