Excellent work, Mogenar!
Well, you did an excellent job of creating it, EmperorNiko.
Rather reminds me of the Refugee Sector container habitats found on Nar Shadda in KOTOR II. Excellent job, the Farseer!
That is a superb splash screen; well done, EmperorNiko!
This is going to be epic!!!!
This is totally awesome, Yoden; thank you for all of your hard work, such is gratefully appreciated.
Well done, Yoden; I love the 3D text!
Depending on the faction and buildings, one can usually put up a decent defense, but infantry are almost always underpowered and easily killed.
Finally, some garrison units wielding appropriate firepower! I have been rather tired of infantry being too weak to be anything but laser fodder...
That movie was awesome!
Interesting design; I've never seen it's like before, but it will definitely be on my list of first units to build.
Reminds me of a dragon fly; great job, The_Darker_Side!
Your mod is glorious, Napoleonic Era Team; I only wish that you would do an American Civil War mod every bit as fine. It is so odd to me to find the units of the United States looking more generic than unique, except for the Colonial Militia.
For instance: The US has a Calvary, not "Hussars;" they have ranged infantry, but those were not referred to as "Musketeers."
If you were to do a mod on the above topic, I know that it would be historically accurate and beautifully crafted. Anyhow, something to consider, perhaps.
My mistake; my apologies sirs; I didn't realize that there were two modders whose usernames are so similar. Lol...
Um, that's Geroenimo, friend.
Welcome back, Benoz!
That bull rancor reminds me of the mutated rancor in Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Now that was an adrenaline pumping, "I'm gonna die," boss monster; much like this one looks. A superb job, Admiral-Ace!
Wow, now that is impressive!
"I may give her a Bloodstar Frigate." For Silri, the name sounds most appropriate.
Well you did a fantastic job on those Death Troopers, Jedi_Clone_X2!
I'm guessing that with the other solar panels deployed, the fighter will have an increase in weapon and shield power as well as increased speed?
This should be ready by next Halloween, right? Lol...
That's one pack that I wouldn't want to tangle with!
Well put, sir; well put indeed!
Sweet charity! You're great, suerteto!
The wasps are similar, and at times they are to be feared. Their sting leaves a marker in your system which can take up to a year to wear out. Once you are thus marked, every wasp will know you as an enemy, and will gleefully sting you at any opportunity.
This is like the Mandalorians; mess with one, and you mess with them all. If you become an enemy to the Mandalorian people, then there is no safe place where you can hide. I have had red wasps throw themselves at my screen door in their zeal to try to get me.
It is a beautiful station, EmperorNiko; I will enjoy using it...
Very impressive, the_Farseer; reminds me of the red wasps that plague the area where I live in the US.
Oft times, it is the little things can help make or break a mod; your mod is one of the best ever made, and with your fine craftsmanship, it is easy to see why, the_Farseer!
"Imperial Extremists" sounds better...
Looks great, suerteto! Good luck on the rest!
It looks like someone is riding a miniature Tie Fighter. Should be an interesting unit to use...
"It was originally a fanon design called the Assassin Corvette."
I thought that the ship looked familiar; still, it is a formidable ship, and one well worthy of your mod, Barcuda13.
An excellent composition, Barcuda13; you are to be congratulated!
If the New Hope is a command ship, then it ought to have the same fleet command ability which Admiral Ackbar has, otherwise what is there to distinguish it from any other dreadnaught, besides the description and a nice icon?
Why waste the munitions, when the same message can be sent by wasting the enemy commander? Lol....
It is an excellent screenshot and fine work, Jedi_Clone_X2.
Looks ancient and deceptive; perfect for crime syndicates.
Excellent and welcome news, Yoden!
Nice work, Admiral-Ace!
There were also times when the Imperial Guard were deployed on missions wearing red Storm Trooper like armor, and carrying enhanced blaster rifles. The Imperial Guard were elite commandos as well as red caped, force pike wielding foes. It would be nice if you could include this second variant in the mod as well.
Perhaps the Emperor could "deploy" them...
Sounds great, Tecness2!
Good luck on both mods, spaceship_2012!
Showcasing the Eclipse?! That is one sweet ship!
Darth Revan, my all time favorite Star Wars character!
Hope you brought an extra pair, because rhakgouls usually travel in packs... Lol...
Apology accepted, Rancor1401; it's an easy mistake to make, especially if one is using a mobile device like so many do here in the US.
Perhaps you should consider beefing up the indigenous population a bit by tweaking the spawned squads so that they include a few citizens armed with military grade weapons, maybe a rocket launcher or two.
In real life, civilians can be anybody, and each has unique skills when it comes to their nations being invaded. Some civies are ex-military, some are police and security forces, - etc.
This is why I have never agreed with the standard wimpy civilian forces in the vanilla game. The most dangerous indigenous units are the people of Polus, because their weapons actually disable both a vehicle and its shields. In the past, I have actually lost units to the citizens of Polus, because they were created to be a threat, not laser fodder.
1. Successor? Why are you leaving, rkraptor70?
2. This is a great turret model; reminds me of the ones in SWBF II.
This comment has been posted in a private group.
Impressive; is it a rapid fire mini turbo laser?
That looks like a Victory SD it is devastating, and if so, the hull plating should be able to withstand ground based lasers...
Could you add these to Dantooine as well? In KOTOR I & II, manta ray like creatures were frequently shown flying in the air.
Isn't this the Gonzati cruiser / frigate?
My suggestion: Since this is the Old Republic, why not add in the Czerka Corporation and the Exchange? Czerka was practically the main distributor of armament to the Sith, and the Exchange had a long running feud with the Hutt Cartel, though it seems to have been absorbed by the Black Sun after the sacking of Coruscant at the end of the Great Galactic War.
I notice that in the vanilla game, when one plays as the British and chooses "Revolution," that the Colonial Militia then become the main unique unit.
Having studied this period of time in school, I have to wonder why the Continental Army under Gen. George Washington, the French Marquis de Lafayette, and the Prussian Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben is not anywhere to be found. Because France gave them their uniforms, the Continental Army were dressed much like the British, save only that their uniforms were blue and white instead of red and white.
Since your mod is "The Wars of Liberty," could you create and code in the Continental Army and its heroes as buildable units for the "American" side of the British nation, held in reserve until the "Revolution" is initiated?
Will the Jedi Academy be buildable, and coded to provide special Jedi oriented upgrades and units?
As one who has played your mod's initial release, I must say that in my opinion your work was far from "crappy;" it shows great ingenuity and skill. The Old Republic droid units are some of my favorites in this mod, and I look forward to your next release, Admiral-Ace.
Sweet! Well done, CaptainFordo!
Reminds me of the ShaShore Frigate as found in the Legacy Era mod; one of my favorite units for ganging up on capital ships...
Looks great, Jedi_Clone_X2!
A Universal Modding Tool: sounds like a glorious and much needed program. I wish you luck Anakin_Sklavenwalker!
When people purchase a vehicle they tend to personalize it, and make it uniquely theirs. With such being true with people, it becomes more so with nations, and factions: each would acquire what tech they could, and then make it uniquely theirs according to their preferences.
Perhaps this is what Normada_Firefox wishes to show us through these subtle changes. Not all factions have the exact same mind set. Thus where one would favor one configuration of weapons emplacements, another faction would favor something with more of a flare.
For example: the Empire might favor enhanced turbo lasers, where the Rebellion used standard turbo lasers or particle cannons, and the Consortium a bank of mass drivers or disruptor based weaponry.
To quote from the movie 'The Princess Bride:' "They are the brute squad!"
Mandalorian assault troopers, armed with disruptor rifles: sweet charity!
That would be awesome!
I thought that it might.
In my own ancestry are the German families of Brewer, Fischbach, and Otterbach; on my French side are Petitjean and Perot, as well as some Huguenot families whose names escape me at the moment. "Practical" and "passionate" describe the traits of my family, so I could assume the same in one of similar national backgrounds.
Error in paragraph five:
"destruction of a major station and several cruiser"
The designation "cruiser" should be pluralized as "cruisers." :-)
That means that you are both practical and passionate about what you do, right?
Who could forget Cheesecake645? He is a master!
Wonderful workmanship, Cheesecake645!
It's positively wicked! Great job, EmperorNiko & Geroenimo!
Very nice, Admiral-Ace! A fine job!
Wow, now that's impressive!
Excellent unit, Videogamer13!
It resembles a Titan or Allegiance Class SD...
Have you sent any of your work to the other modders on your team? If so, you may be able to rebuild your work by collecting it from the other modders.
When one creates a mod, the files are usually stored on the hard drive first, then transferred to the removable storage. If this is the case, then I would suggest doing a system sweep for the files. It could be that they are lurking in either a regular, or a temp folder somewhere on the main drive.
When one moves a file, the computer usually retains a ghost image of the file on the hard drive that can be recovered using undelete software. Before purchasing a lifetime license of Restorer Ultimate Pro, I used several trial editions and freebies with a moderate degree of success. Here is a list of such, should you be interesting in trying a "search and rescue" approach:
Wow; Nomada_Firefox, you are a genius!
This fighter is awesome, EmperorNiko!
Sorry about your accident sir, and I hope that your recovery will be a swift one.
Having been an AOM / AOM-Titans player for many years, I can attest to the "giant(s) from Norse legend" bit; the fire giant is always my favorite after the Nidhogg. Perhpas when you are feeling better, we could discuss our favorite AOM experiences. Anyhow, good luck in life sir!
"It was simple, just it needed two pieces of code very hidden in the game and very few used."
I have often thought upon how strange it is that one is able to capture abandoned factories, and spawn their units, yet not retain those units afterwards. Where did they go? The same goes for units captured either through Zahn's bribery, or via force corruption. The unit pledges their service, so where are they?
It's like the Bespin mission: "We have managed to bribe and capture and Imperial Interdictor." Really, okay, where is it after the mission? An Interdictor is too valuable a ship to simply release after only one mission...
This is excellent, Normada_Firefox!
Wow, now that is an interesting map!
Give the engineers the ability to also repair air vehicles. In so many mods, air support repair is sadly neglected, which is odd since anything that is built can be repaired.
Nomada_Firefox, your craftsmanship is superb! This is the first time that I have ever seen an underground map for EAW/FOC. Congratulations, I believe that you have set a new record with this map!
It is excellent! Great job, EmperorNiko!
Is that a reference to the Disney movie of the same name with Aly & AJ Michalka?
Great job, Scott_W.Pilgrim_!
In KOTOR I, we learn that the Star Forge maps utilized the same technology as the Star Forge itself, and that they had been repairing themselves. The technology implied seems to me to be a type of force imbued nanotechnology; if this assumption is correct, then the Star Forge nanites could contain the schematics for the Star Forge.
After having been blown apart, it would seem reasonable that the debris would all have to be brought to together in order to be solidified into one mass. Using the nanite theory, it could conceivably take thousands of years for nanites to accomplish this task. By the time frame of this mod, the Star Forge might well have been completely repaired and fully functional.
A planet like Jabiim, for instance?
Delta289 has a point; those who worked on the series are usually given payments whenever their work is broadcast by a legitimate broadcasting company. Since YouTube is not a broadcasting company, but rather a file sharing site (technically), they do not have to pay for the rights to show the series.
Payment to those who worked on the series would depend on their contractual agreements; thus the designers, - etc. may have only been paid for their work once, and not every time that their work is shown, although those who hold the rights to the series would.
Nice particle effects, Jedi_Clone_X2.
A very sleek and sophisticated design.
Great Job, EmperorNiko and Angryfly!
Will you be adding the "Commando Droids" from the CW Animated Series?
Welcome back, The66Order66! The mod's description is what got me interested in the mod, and I have been looking forward with glee to it's completion. Thus it is very welcoming news to know that you haven't given up on it.
Would you be willing to create the Trayus Academy on Malachor IV? According to Kreia, the Trayus Academy was created by the original Sith as a repository of knowledge, as well as to train specific classes of Sith. It would be nice to see it used as such during the height of the Sith Empire.
Wow, this new skin is great!
Commanding this ship is something which I look forward to most eagerly.
This looks great, Admiral-Ace!
Happy New Year, Admiral-Ace; love the picture!
Wow, awesome work CaptainFordo!
Looks great, and a "Happy New Year" to you as well; I look forward to the progress which this new year will bring, with this mod.
Wow, this screenshot is great! Excellent work, spaceship_2012!
Thank you Mogenar! This patch is great!
Please, create another faction, and allow the player to help Silri uncover new force secrets from the holocron she stole, and use her new knowledge to conquer the galaxy. *Contemplative:* No one has done that before...
Merry Christmas to you as well!
Looking great, guys! Merry Christmas!
"CIS is not as aggressive as it should be;" oh really, because my LAAT's, AT-TE walkers, multiple infantry platoons, Jedi, -etc were just mowed down by wave after wave of infantry and a nearly invincible enemy hero named "Durge." Compared to other mods, the CIS is so aggressive, that one feels as though the war was real.
On the whole, you have done a great job fr0st47!
You do fractal images, Geroenimo? Are you on DeviantArt as well as ModDB?
Pardon me EmperorNiko, but if the name: "Darth Treya" quoted in your mod's description is the same one from KOTOR II, then you may want to make a correction; the Sith name of Kreia is "Darth Traya." :-)
Add a restoration station specific to Corellia. In so many mods, the Corellian Destroyer was spoken of as an older ship built in modules, so that as the ships aged they could be upgraded to become relevant and powerful again. This sounds like a perfect fit for the restoration station profile.
Sounds good; with hints like those in your post to dwell upon, the time will pass quickly.
Well Larry-3, you are the only modder that I know of who ever put Grace Kelly in command of a Star Destroyer. ;-)
Seriously though, the work that you have done on the Violet Alliance / Alliance at War has been excellent; you have talent as a modder, and it would be awesome to see you continue in this venue. It would equally great to see a new version of the Alliance at War on the downloads page, as I notice that the downloads which you had before are missing. I have downloaded just about everything that you have released, and have found your mod to be "most impressive." :-)
I think that capturing Mandalore will be one of my top priorities when the new version is released. Will Mandalore also be the sole place where one can build the Canderous Assault Tanks? Since they are named after Mandalor the Preserver (Canderous Ordo) it would seem appropriate.
Wonderful job, damiclone7567; the model looks just like Obi-wan does in the animated series!
This is a sweet map! Reminds me of the Kashyyyk map of the "Rising Sun" mod for SW Battle Front II.
Ahoska Tano looks like she just stepped out of the series. Splendid work, damiclone7567!
Not to request any spoilers, but will the Star Forge be buildable by the Rakata faction? This factory ship has captured by interest ever since I first saw it in KOTOR I.
I have researched both entities, and am pleased with your announcement. What powers and abilities do you have in mind for the Rakata?
Trandoshan warriors and a rancor, an interesting situation...
Wow, good job! Unlike most vanilla models, your model actually looks like the character it represents. *Content Sigh* Good job, damiclone7567!
It looks great; well done, Admiral-Ace!
Sweet charity; this frigate is awe-inspiring!
Excellent musical score; my compliments to the composer.
Well made, jawnkwan; well made indeed.
This is the first time that I have ever heard this song, or of its composer, and I love it already! Thank you for making me aware of its existence, gentlemen.
Looks good; sounds great; and I can't wait to play it!
Nice axe; the head reminds me a bit of the "Batman" symbol. Lol. Thanks for clearing that up for me, AUS_Doug.
Not to be negative, but is it just me, or is the shield on unit three coming out of his body and through his left arm?
Thanks, Mogenar; this patch is much appreciated!
Canonically, Darth Revan was male, not female; however, there is an option in KOTOR I to play Revan as a female, and in KOTOR II's player conversation with Atton Rand, there is the option that allows one to define Revan as either male or female. That said, it bears repeating that according to cannon, Darth Revan was in fact, a man.
Matrix, anyone? Lol...
As a student of web design, I work with xml coding and can attest to the unending frustration that can come from a tag being left out. This is why I use Notepad++; color coding, syntax checking, -etc. really help in ensure a clean xml file. My advice is to always check the color coding first. In the version I am running, correct tags are shown in purple highlight. :-)
@LordVindican: Not to be sarcastic sir, but: is the Elite Sith Warrior's chest supposed to resemble the hide of a Jersey cow, or is a by product of your rendering / modelling engine?
A Star Wars style hunting / trophy photo. YES!
The leader reminds me of Davik Kang, from KOTOR I!
Wonderful graphics; well rendered; looking forward to testing the demo.
Okay, okay, lady; I get it already, no ignorance, only knowledge - right?!
In the "Absolute Corruption 2.4" mod, if you controlled Bothawui, you were able to recruit Bothan spies and build a Bothan Cruiser; likewise, if you controlled Naboo, then you could build the Naboo star fighter. This concept of being able to build on each planet, what the planet was known for would be very beneficial to your mod. It could go side by side with your mod's concept of receiving the ability to recruit the conquered planetary faction's units.
Here is another idea: It has been said that everyone has their price." Why not take greater advantage of the defiler's ability to corrupt planets by creating the option to literally purchase all of the planets space and ground forces? Think of it as a "Bribe Garrison" feature, whose cost would be calculated based on each unit's cost. Once used, the planet would change to your faction, with their units becoming your units; and their buildings, your buildings. This would make the game play quite interesting.
The "print screen" button only captures the screenshot and imports it into Windows' clipboard. If you want to save the image, then open your favorite imaging program (I use MS Paint), then press "Cntrl" + "V" to paste the image. After that, simply save the file.
