Hey, I am a mapper/coder/voice talent/composer for my mod, Galaxy of Chaos, for forces of Corruption. I am a Star Wars nerd, Boy Scout, and musician. (Go figure!) Thats all I'll share with you stalkers.
partly accessibility, partly laziness, partly devotion to programming the mod itself :)
If any other mod team member wants to make an actual wiki for it, they are welcome...
On my website is a wiki for te mod. Check it out at: Freewebs.com
it will be a little longer however....
some of the specs are not canon because of balancing, etc.
But things like Rogue Squadron, SSD's, an the like are canon.
And to answer your wuestion, we are actually going by the novels for most of it.
We don't claim full 'canon' status; the point of the mod is to have a more 'realistic' experience with the lasers, squadrons, planets, ships....
thank you for the encouragement... it is sorely needed
'Super' Ships: Executor (Empire) Viscount (Rebel) Eclipse (Consortium)
Yes, and ssd's for all factons!
well, not technically, but you get the point.
The beta will only supprt (fully) skirmish, with a heavy space concentration, but the 1.0 and above should have the GC fuly supported, and an equally modded land aspect.
my stupid keyboard doesn't seem to want to speal rite
If you want to apply for a job as Voice actor, send some sound files to this email address darthnerdmaps AT gmail DOT com
as for the files:
a full set (select SFX, move SFX, Attack SFX, nebula asteroids SFX) of a space unit of your choice from this list:
Pellaeon-class Star destroyer (Imperial)
Havoc-class bomber (Consortium)
A3 X-Wing (Rebels)
if we(the mod team) like the results, you will be added to the mod team and given Lieutenent status.
Most seem to be on their way to being fixxed. The bombing run is minor, SFX is minor, I fixxed the missile frigate, etc.
Remmer, this is only the beta!
Read the latest news item.
actually, we could use one for a few models...
namely: hyena bomber, new TIE voices, SSD voices, mon cal voices, and if you can manage, droid voices.
Prince Xizor, Guri, Watto, and Joruus C'Baoth with the Consortium?
its not a set era, given that it starts (level 1) with clone wars era and ends up (level 5) with legacy era tech.
Tt is a WAYYYY outdated release... we fixed those ships already. I will release an updad buglist if anybody wants.
Well, we wanted to get the mod out before school started (down here)
but it will be out before fall, I can promise that.
actually, Thrawn and later Imperials shielded their intereptors. You can look it up on wookiepedia.
for the venator, I mean
Yes, the hardpoints are upgraded. Turbolasers instead of laser cannons, torp launchers instead of ion cannons, I believe.
And the lasers are BLUE.
Well, glad to know that. I was sure we would be rated down in the dumpster, but we were still in the hundreds.
Unit list will be put up soon. I promise.
I'm sure it will please.
thats fine. Some of these are just minor fixes, others need more time. However, we ren't looking to fully activate Hutts and Black Sun until at least 3.0, so i wouldn't hold out THAT long...
yes. we just wanted to stress the space aspect first, since that is the most complex. There will be new ground units.
oh, and its set up so that the actual capital ships are unbuildable until tech 5- and we made it harder to advance tech.
oh yes. And you can add more than one file just by seperating with a comma and a space.
how does one edit lua? I mean, i know theres a program for it, but is lua it's own code, or is it another language in a package?
so basically, new code under a variant replaces old base code, so if I only wanted to change, say, model, hardpoints and sfx, i would only code that in?
I'll release the next beta when I get the last of the units coded in.
Ahh, but not all fighters are spawned. Sure it is possible to spam capitals but a counter-spam of say, KWings would solve it. This might be a problem multiplayer, but the AI seems to prefer a mixed assault...
And you always have the option of not capital spamming. Of course, the same could be said of land: all land units=1 pop, so 10 AT-ATs (providing stormies)
If the community believes this is too major a problem ,I could always set limits on capital ships. And carrier ships, for that matter.
