What? You again!!!
I have to admit, that test scene looks gorgeous.
I see what you mean. When I tried my hand at midi sequencing, I used Noteworthy Composer. That lets you enter the notes on a staff. There was something very cumbersome about it, though. Maybe Guitar Pro makes it easier. I'll have to do some research.
Didn't even know this game was on computers. :D
Cool. This takes me back to the year 2003! (or whenever it came out!)
I'm down to my last 300 dollars or so. lol. I had to cut off the internet.
I'll just PM you. ;-)
ah, succumbing to peer pressure! you're not a norm-setter, you're a norm-FOLLOWER!
well, what's this 'team' that you're now a member of creating? I'm interested. :D
are you the music maker, or are you contributing something else? your skillset is pretty versatile.
Glad to see you're both alive and well (hopefully!)
Yes, just like olden times. Except one has an army of minions to entertain him and the other has upgraded to Skype. La-de-da, mr. Frenchman!
Oh, a gate's gonna keep me out?
I'll just swim in through the stinky river!
This looks great. :D
I like how the cannon ball pushes the whole ship forward. That makes me laugh. :D
His cockade says he's a Prussian!
I'm a fan of x-com and this looks good. Tracking. ;-)
By the way: ^mysterious :D
This looks promising, good luck. ;-)
Always happy to see ambitious new mods for Oblivion.
Excellent! You have a lot of talented people on this project!
Nice work. :D
Are you going to add epitaphs to the tombstones. :-)
this texture is crap! Blue and PURPLE?!?!!?!
pick natural colors u retards!!! stoopeds
This is a great development! I hope you upload some examples of your progress using UDK soon. :-)
I really like the team for this mod! You all really enjoy what you're making. :D
it should fly the hammer and sickle. :D
Quality sounds fine here. Very retro!
This is a neat idea. :-)
wooooah, dark lighting! SPOOKY
This mod has potential. I'll watch. :-)
note: I was very excited when I got my door working. that's why I kept opening it. ;-)
Hammurabi approves. :-)
dogfighting with newtonian phsyics. should be interesting. :D
The purpose is to show you how the game will look through the eyes of several alien species. I think it's a very immersing idea. Use your imagination a little. :-/
Technology rapidly develops during war. If WW2 lasted into the 1960s, it's probable that technology would be far more advanced than otherwise.
The stern is nice! I like that lanttern. ;-)
The deck looks a lot more detailed than vanilla PotC, too. Good work!
Did you draw those faces? If so, doing the different expressions must've took a while. Good work!
I like the idea and I have fond memories of both rpg maker 2000 and pokemon. I will watch you!
you stole the first two seconds from ff8! very shameful!
This looks really good. I hope there's a demo. :-)
aim a musket?!
Haha, wow. Very cool. This was one of my favorite set, too. and I still have it. :-)
this game is very low rez and pixelly!
I'd stand between the pillars on the upper-left shooting grenades down into the lobby pit, which was a no-man's-land!
perfect dark memories. :D
is it really possible to get new units into TW? I think that's a fundamental question! good track, though!
this does look neat! how'd you achieve the cell-shaded appearance?
this is a really neat idea. and oblivion's the perfect engine for it! the progress on your blog looks great. good luck!
This 'contest' says a lot about your mod.
my mod tops your mod. our wars only last 7 minutes!
'REMINDS ME OF LOTR!!!'
every idiot says that. :p
god bless the innocents killed during the occupation of afghanistan and iraq
the carpets look kinda odd. they're not center with the door at the end of the room. :p
that wall texture doesn't lose its detail upclose. :p
I think the one confused is -you-.
this... is ART. seriously!
nice high resolution textures!
Do you know what I like? ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMBIES!
I'll admit, those are some nice lookin' trees
THIS LOOKS AMAzING
...it's nerf, or NOTHING!! AHHHHH!!!!!!!
alttp hyrule castle
Wow. this almost looks too good to be Morrowind! REALLY nice work. it's great. I always wanted a pirate mod, too. will there be naval battles or sailing? I know that's asking for a lot, though!
Looks like a v2, actually. ;)
But even if it's not, it certainly was BASED on it.
This was interesting. :)
yes. I agree, lol. find good settings for it is trial n' error.
You might be able to bypass that limitation by giving different regions its own world space.
We were experimenting with the idea of having Shinra infantryman wear something like SWAT armor. In a lot of ways they act like riot police. Ultimately, we'll use something similar to the sprite. I'm fond of the infantryman equipment. :)
Hehehe. Thanks for all the kind comments on our mod page. Really livens things up. FF7 forever!!! :D
Hehe... how would you like to live next to that?
I miss Goldeneye. :(
I'm glad to see there's others still interested in doing big Morrowind mods. Yours is looking pretty nice, too. Good luck!
A for effort. :)
lol. what do you mean?
very, very nice!
I'm excited. :)
yay, a gladius!
GIVE ME BACK MY EAGLES!
I likeit. He really looks like a rebel. Worn but determined!
That town's neat. Makes me think of ancient Rome for some reason. I bet it's fun to assemble. :)
Looking nice. Maybe you should create a Mordor weather type?
That's a nice staff, there!
Wow. Great. :)
I love the shadow. Like an 8-bit sprite!
Might be just certain maps. Other ones are working fine (I really like the wind sfx). I can't steer the plane, though! I keep crashing. Is there a way to play it without a joystick? The control preferences menu doesn't show very many options. :o
edit: just found the keyboard config app. on your site. I'll try it out.
Ahh, I finished downloading it (finally!). The installer was fancy (good music, but I won't spoil that!). Seems like there's some major compatibility issues with Vista, though. That's understandable from an older engine. I'll try and see if there's a way to get it playable.
Too late! Your mod will be shut down.........NOW!
Maybe you could have little islands you could travel between?
Have you played Morrowind? It's just like Oblivion (in terms of how you interact with the characters/world), but MUCH better. And, your chief complaint about Oblivion is all its autogenerated content. Everything was done by hand in Morrowind. This project was originally intended as a Morrowind mod, actually. We upgraded to Oblivion because Morrowind's engine is getting out of date. It's still a Morrowind mod, spiritually! If that's possible. :)
I consider myself a pretty strong critic of FFVII. I wasn't all that impressed by the compilation. It's the setting that really appeals to me, in fact. Oh, I have a lot of respect for FFVIII and the Chrono games. ...now, legend of the dragoon! I couldn't stand its music. :p
...hehe, it's not even textured! But, for the actual game mesh, I'm hoping to add a lot more detail. that probably won't look very good when you're standing right next to it. :p
That is awesome. I think one of Pirate's shortcomings is the ugly ships you use when you're sailing around. If you could update a lot of the ships, it'd turn it into a whole new game.
Ah! You've released it. I'll go play it now. Thanks. :)
I like the idea. Have you ever played monster hunter?
lol. "Here's a spiffy shirt. And you can't have it!"
I feel disillusioned now.
Ah, I know what that's like.
It's your job to grind out the features while the artists stand around debating what color the water should be.
Keep up the good work, murphy. ;-)
ah, actual wood fragments being blasted away by the cannons. That's cool. :D
multiply the effect by 5!
Nice detail on that beakhead. Can't wait to see it textured. :-)
Right. Because the sculptures and other artwork that the ancients created look so much different from the people that inhabit Europe today. We can't possibly be descended from the same people that have lived on the continent for thousands of years.
Or maybe your thoughts have just been totally warped by your marxist anthropology professors who have a vested interest in promoting the dispossession of Europeans in their own homelands?
Back for more, eh. ;-)
I was simply explaining to you how your ancestors would not be proud of the antics we're witnessing today throughout Europe. If your ancestors can potentially be proud of what they see, can't they also be ashamed?
Ah, this dungeon keeper treats his minions well!
Also, nice use of Wagner there. :-)
I'd love to hear some sort of rendition of Strauss' Blue Danube waltz in the mod someday, like in Elite II. That would be cool!
See here: Youtube.com
I certainly voted for a more historically-oriented sailing simulation. There are more than enough fantasy games out there. Pleased to see that others feel the same way. :-)
An update about halting updates. :D
The environment looks like 100% more detailed than I remembered!
barbary pirates - what a brilliant and admirable group of people. responsible for all our wonderful conveniences like medicine, electronics, automobiles, etc... oh, wait: white people are responsible for all that. not your filthy mud pirates. you're insane.
Yeah, it sounds to me like you don't have any idea what you're talking about. The muslims of course captured Constantinople in 1453, massacring and enslaving the citizens. The muslim turks attempted to invade Europe all the way into the 17th century before ultimately being defeated at the Battle of Vienna. The (muslim) barbary pirates were enslaving europeans long after that.
The crusades were the result of an appeal to Western Europe by the Byzantines (themselves Europeans) to save them from the muslim onslaught. But yes, I agree that this has gone on too long.
Europe is the homeland of Indo-Europeans. Indo-Europeans have defeated the invasions of racial aliens for thousands of years. Asiatics almost conquered Europe in the 4th century under the leadership of Attilla. The Ottomans made repeated incursions into the European heartland which were defeated by coalitons of Europeans defending their homeland. It would be very unfortunate if we allow ourselves to lose the territory we've defended against aliens for THOUSANDS of years because of some pathological notion of "tolerance". I'm the insane one for seeing the obvious, I guess.
Maybe you didn't get the memo, but humans ARE animals WITH animal instincts. I guess you didn't pay attention in biology, mr. "u have never read history before".
As for muslims having more of a right to live in Europe than native Europeans, that's just absurd.
Not sure what you mean. Struggle, survival, etc. these are all ideas borne of Western science. We need a new morality based on the theory of evolution.
No, I don't really look at foreigners as animals, etc. That's an inaccurate assumption on your part. But I understand that the uniqueness of my own people will be destroyed forever if we let ethnic aliens occupy our territory. And you're absolutely right about Jews who think of themselves as "God's chosen people" and all the nonjews as inferior goyim. Jews are tribalistic. Western people's are not collectivists like Jews are. That's our weakness.
I'm curious, what program did you sequence it in? I might try and get back into music making. also, did you use a midi keyboard or did you sequence it by hand? I respect your abilities. :D
anyway, I think you probably understand the logic of my argument. it's not like you're my personal enemy at all. if you can make your own country a happy and prosperous place for your people, that wouldn't trouble me.
although I will conceed that I don't have as much of a right to complain about immigration as some people, since my ancestors were immigrants themselves. what is "fair" doesn't really matter, honestly. fairness is not a consideration at all in a world where life is a struggle for existence and only the fittest survive, even if the fittest people are the most unfair and treacherous. if treachery ensures your survival, then treachery is good. morality is only relevant in a homogenous society..
there was never such a concept as "racism" until the commies invented the idea in the 1920s to silence and demoralize their opponents. "racism" is basically just a way of silencing and demoralizing your enemies. call them a racist, that will gett'em to shut up. according to the morality of political correctness, a racist is the worst sinner imaginable. again, "racism" is a mechanism used to weaken people's natural loyalty to the people their related to by blood.
my loyalty is reserved for my ethnic and cultural kin. I am not ashamed of that.
well, you're right about one thing. it probably is too late. like I said, western peoples are so demoralized that we'll never fight our disposession. we have an elite that is determined to destroy us. when the leaders of a society are determined to destroy their own people, what is left to do?
it's a terrible situation.
Yeah, I'm more upset to see Africans and Chinese in Italy than Slavs. Of course you're some braindead leftard so of course you'd call me a racist etc.
of course, the GENOCIDE of europeans obviously doesn't bother you. it's to your genetic advantage to destroy US. your job is to convince us as best you can that we shouldn't worry about our genocide at the hands of your brethren. And that's an argument that will work on many stupid people, but you'll never convince ME for I see what's happening every day. I face the results of unregulated immigration EVER DAY. I can't avoid it or run away. And pretty soon when things have progressed far enough there won't be anywhere to run to.
yeah, I live in the tower of babel. a place populated by myriads of disparate people speaking every barbarous language on earth. that is purgatory in the truest sense.
You're probably being facetious, but high fertility among foreign immigrants is a disaster for anyone concerned about the genetic and cultural integrity of their homelands. Ruling elites are altering the demographics of their countries PURPOSEFULLY. The average person is too demoralized (thanks to the education system and the media) to care about what's happening.
I've done some research. Rome destroyed itself through it's hedonistic lifestyle. Essentially, Romans preferred to have fun instead of raising families. Their birthrates declined and they were overrun by barbarians. And that's exactly what's happening in Western societies today. We ARE doomed.
Look, you say that you're an Arab proud of your heritage, etc. etc. etc. I understand that. Your have a right to love your heritage. But if your homeland was suddenly overrun by MILLIONS of people who will not even adopt your culture, your heritage would be wiped out and replaced in no time at all. Don't you want to fight for something you love and admire, namely your own cultural heritage? Your heritage is what your forefathers passed down to YOU, not some foreigners that contributed nothing at all to the development of your civlization.
Besides that, there is a GENETIC component to it. Germans are very closely related to one another. Japanese are closely related to other Japanese. They're like family. When you import foreigners, you're hurting your own extended family. Culture is also the product of genetics.
Some people think we had better save the polar bears from global warming or they'll become extinct! Meanwhile the future of their own children is in peril. It's funny how middle aged people sometimes say how much happier and safer life was when they were children. They can't understand why it is that today it's dangerous to even let your children play outside in the yard. They don't recognize what has changed in the last 30 years. Western nations have allowed massive immigration from the third world to overun their communities. Studies have shown that people feel AFRAID when they live in a community that's diverse culturally and ethnically. People who are different do not trust one another. Community life is only possible when the community is homogenous. Look at any "wonderfully" diverse and multicultural city and you'll see it's a cesspool. A crime ridden ghetto. 70 years from now you'll be a minority in your own country surrounded by ethnic enemies who hate you. Then you'll understand what you've lost. And trust me, I live in such a community. I already know what the future's going to be like. My family has lived in my neighborhood for a hundred years. It was a peaceful and happy community of German immigrants. Today it's the most awful ghetto in the whole city. I live in fear every day. THAT'S the future.
Also, look at the rape stats in Norway. 95% of rapes are committed by muslim immigrants. THAT'S the future. And dumb idiots say "who cares about the future!" well trained proles!
The West, just like Rome, is under the influence of ideologies that are weakening our ability to survive as a civilization. These are: Feminism (which is totally decimating our population), multiculturalism (sanctioning the creation of ethnic minorities), and Political Correctness (which makes it a thought crime to notice the above problems). The ethnic MAJORITIES (Frenchmen in France, for instance) will be reduced to MINORITIES within 70 years in their own homelands. We are slated for genetic and cultural extinction. But lets get back to playing vidya games instead of resisting our impending destruction.
And tell me why the Romans were destroyed? My guess is that the influence of foreign ideologies (Christianity) weakened the Empire and foreigners (namely, Germans) took advantage of Rome's weakness and took over.
The United States had its own distinct culture that immigrants were expected to adopt and assimilate to until very recently when multi-culturalism became the predominant ideology in the west. Now the dominant cultures in all Western countries are in the process of being wiped out or "deconstructed". The elites want to turn the population into shallow consumers. When the native populations aren't consuming, they import consumers from the 3rd world. They also want to flood the labor market with foreigners to lower wages, but that's another side of the equation. Western Civilization (which I love very dearly) is being obliterated. All our heroes are now painted as villains.
Since most of us are totally powerless, we just distract ourselves with video games, sports, movies, and other meaningless time wasters.
Italians today aren't true Romans. Is that your argument?
I don't mind Slavs. ;-)
I just prefer them to stay in their own countries. A Nation is composed of a culturally and ethnically homogenous population. You destroy the Nation and the culture when you allow yourself to become dispossesed by foreigners.
I thought about adding lamps. But that'd just make it too cluttered. :D
I could easily port this to fallout or some other game, of course. The facecount (with all the modifiers removed) is about 40,000 but that could be optimized pretty easily.
...A Junon mod would be a simple project, even compared to the shinra tower. There are 8 levels with 70 identical buildings. You never know. ;-)
I'm just afraid to indulge too much in my obsessions like I used to.
This is true. ;-)
I kicked Umbra's *** by using a bunch of crappy spells (wearing him down) while running. He never could catch up to me. Make'em faster, at least. :D
FOLDABLE windshields? Brilliant!
I think the bible became irrelevant during the Enlightenment. You're about 300 years behind the times.
I suppose the banner you want to unite the world under is an all-powerful consumerist oligarchy. That's the direction things are headed. ;-)
In the process, we're destined to lose our cultural identities. That wouldn't concern uncultured dummies who play video games all day and obsess over star wars, I guess.
You're willing to hand over countries that have been ethnically and culturally homogenous for thousands of years because of some unscientific belief that "we're all the same, therefore it doesn't matter if the original inhabitants are dispossessed". You believe foreigners should inherit the heritage of our ancestors. This is sad. I think your thinking has been totally warped by video games and teevee.
Alright. Go back to play vidya games. ;-)
Existential problems in the real world don't concern children.
Hey Caimen, do you copy? EMERGENCY MANEUVERS! :D
Would your ancestors also be proud of the fact that the native population of Italy is in the process of being ethnically dispossessed by Chinamens, Africans, and Slavs?
Looking forward to a video. :D
I'd like to see what the gameplay's like.
I guess it fires octagon shaped shells. :D
Big improvement. ;-)
There are a lot of x-com inspired games being announced recently. :D
I'm not complaining. Good luck. ;-)
Very nice HUD. :D
I'm wondering, how big are the levels going to be? Is it an open-world? Maybe you could add a small map on the screen that shows where you are. Great work so far, by-the-way. :-)
Where's the music. :D
This game looks pretty interesting. You're going to add cannons now. That's good. :D
The big 2.0 at last?
Nice mod. Does exactly what it says. I can't get past the first battle, unfortunately. :(
I KEEP DYING!!!!
the team IS pleased to announce. "team" is singular. you use "are" with plural nouns.
besides that, great work. this remake of elite: frontier is excellent. I'm pleased to see new updates.
I see more STUFF on the left, and the plantation looks better. I guess that's 2012?
This begs the question: how did you make this diverse group stand still politely while you took the picture? You must've promised everyone five dollars!
Why is your question mark so jagged? It looks diseased!
Made by ME.
GIVE IT BACK!
Was the music featuring the harp made for the mod? It's nice. :-)
Also, having explored Stirk very thoroughly, I must attest to the immense care and effort invested in the mod. This is a team that loves what it's doing and it shows. Good work on the alpha.
Good work, Fork. :D
You made this in blender?
Looks interesting. I'm wondering, what are ways that the player can 'interact with the environment'? I'm hoping that means you can destroy buildings n' stuff. :D
Looks promising! I'd like to know more about the world, too.
now, port it to oblivion. :D
When was I looking for approval?
For the record, I'll say that I never expected SE to give us permission to make the mod. Their silence about the mod's development was tacit approval, as far as I was concerned. :-)
BAIT AND SWITCH! BAIT AND SWITCH!
Very interesting. 8-)
Get something else in there!
Alright, time for a video of an in-game fleet battle!
I officially designate this as our duct music. You will see many strange and wondrous things in the ducts. ;-)
Awesome work! Kl3sk is a jackass. Just ignore him. ;-)
good work, mr. man who illustrated this!
Call it 'the mighty head lopper'
Azam's judgement is good, too. :-)
This looks very good!
Was that wall always so curvy. :-)
That's pretty neat! Good work. :-)
Good work, David. :D
oh, you're trying to trick me into doing more work! I see. ;-)
I'll keep my eye on this. ;-)
What units can we expect?
A maus in london? I'm pretty sure a maus would sink whatever boat you use to move it!
Does PotC deserve such excellent models?!
I suggest you remove the image. I have powerful friends. 8-)
he loves beer, too.
1.Male or Female? male. ;-)

there's a 2000 character limit for comments. :-/
it's a blender render. ;-)
apparently they aren't always terrible looking!
that's a strange looking building. why does the roof face forward?
That's great. :o
This looks strangely like something I made. I think it's just a coincidence. :-)
maybe the aristocrats could carry elaborately decorated ceremonial weapons. :D
how am I supposed to steal this game when it's only on xbox!
maus panzers are indestructible!
yeah, an abrams couldnt destroy it!!
Morrowind is a much better choice for this sort of thing. great idea!
(yeah, only people who havent even played morrowind would prefer oblivion. theyre newbs!)
Gott im himmel!
great work! is this a whole custom engine? it looks professional quality. you could probably sell it! (as a psp game!). would be it be really hard to add a first-person viewpoint? that's what I'd like to see in a first release, if possible!
Sounds neat. What's the best place to start learning Hearts of Iron? The learning curve seems really steep. I've sunk hours into the tutorials and I still don't understand what you should do...
Is this total war?
I wanna see some ff6 stuffs!
the yamato can fly in space but couldnt resist a couple tallboys!
that was our joke. I dont know why.
while this is a FANTASTIC mod, this image is shamefully tiny!
DAMN. it's such a nice video. and moddb is rejecting it!
that treadmill must have a lot of useless features. :p
you're the man, man!
don't use subsurf, ever!
thanks, these textures will be useful. :)
I'm going to buy pie for this icecream.
LOOKS like a falcon! will you make a magsec? I like those. ;)
haha. nice rendering.
hehe! you should just make an ff6 mod!
haha. that's a funny lip. :o
AND I GOT THE LAST COMMENT
the little circles under the guys really annoy me. :p
sweet. really nice job!
aha. friedrich likes his giants!
WOULD NAZI ZOMBIES TRY TO INVADE... POLAND
do you use blender to make your meshes? ...if so, your skill is godlike!!! blender is really hard. :o
5/5 for effort!
They actually have those, now. :o NO KIDDIN
really excellent art, though!
I was gonna make a junon mod. Morrowind couldn't handle all the buildings, though. :(
Haha, it's actually the president's office. :p
I'm still doing all the work alone, though... that might be changing soon.
what he said!
I like that pyramid building. :)
I'm a voyager fan, so I can't wait to see how this turns out. :)
Looks great so far!
needs a cig!
This is neat.
I agree with you completely. Retaining a lot of the original's charm is a high priority.
Ah, that might be an idea. I haven't tried implementing it yet. ...maybe it would slide, but at least you'd hear it rum. :)
Why doesn't Gundam Wing ever get any attention! I'd like to see some OZ suits (like a leo!).
For the big guns, you'll need to drag a few of those around. :)
sweet...weapons that look like what they're supposed to!
Is that a panther I see!
