Hello, I am Megavin123. I am a modder for the game Star Wars Empire at War but I am also planning to give other games a try. Aside of that, I am also part of Bullseye; an indie gamedevelopment group.
Hmm could be that I forgot this file. Thanks for pointing this out. What is the file called?
Yeah that works very well XD
I loved playing this mod back in the day :P glad to see it on Moddb
At the moment factions are: Alliance, Tyranny, Shadows and Black Sun Pirate Remnants. Maybe I'll add more factions in the future but that depends on whether they fit in the story or if the game can handle that.
I deny everything xD
Doesn't the Tector-Class have no hangars? Otherwise that might work I guess.
Well I already have a mkII star destroyer as well hehe. But I could do that I guess
Hey isn't this the landing pad from the Star Wars Commander mobile game? What will it do in the mod?
I raise you 506 xD the counter gets set back to 500 every day though.
That is a great honor! Thanks a lot for the offer :)
Thanks :) once I finish the Tyranny and the Alliance I will get to the aliens :) at the moment I am working on my own, but loojing for other modders so that we'll be able to create our own models and such.
Criticism is always welcome, feel free to send me a pm :)
This is very amazing, but the question is tho, what does this do to the filesize? XD
That's nice :) Say, what do you think of my modding project? It is called Star Wars Return of the Shadows, also for Empire at War. :)
That is definitely working out :p Imo, I think Babylon 5 is the best sci-fi out there haha. Do you know that one?
My comment :p
Farscape...I really should watch that sometime haha :p I have been tracking this mod actually. Looks amazing :) Keep up the great work.
Hello there, wanted to let you know I really appreciate the feedback you've been giving on my mod :) It's nice to have advice coming from an expert of the community.
Thanks for letting me know! :)
Yeah you got a point there hehe. I'll look into this :) I assume the original EJ models are found on the Warlords Moddb page?
Well the thing is, the ai knows how to build stations, but not at the right moment. The constructor ships deploy build pads close to enemies, and I don't know how to change this.
That is fine. Since Nomada allowed me to use his work, I don't think I am in a position to express my opinion about his quality over EJ's models, but I do concur that EJ has some really decent models :) but yeah my problem was that I had no clue where to get those xD since I don't have 3ds
Neat model :) I like the design haha
What I meant with clashing textures, that if I include ships with textures made by different artists, it might look strange, but that could just be me haha :p Your mod looks magnificent btw :) keep up the great work!
I don't know if their textures are going to clash with the other ships in the mod :') Thanks for offering me to use your model, I will give it a try :)
When you look at it that way, I think this actually works yeah. Let us vote :) Alright folks, upvote this comment if you rather want Return to the Shadows :)
Hey there, nice avatar :) painting from the Russian revolution, isn't it? That's nice. Hey I see you got some neat models on your moddb page, so I was wondering, are you working on a project at the moment? Regards :)
I see what you did there, will look into this. The idea came from the fact that in the mod, a dark race invades the galaxy and everyone just calls them Shadows, and in this alternate universe, it is their second invasion, so the shadows return haha :) Return to the Shadows also might be interesting though. Will consider :)
Hmm makes sense. Good work though :)
So what you did is increasing their engagement range? Interesting. Will this also replace the hunt for enemies ability? As I can imagine that would be obsolete now.
Yeah my recording software causes quite a lot of lag so that sucks. Atm I use Fraps to record and take screenshots.
Now that you mention it...it kind off does indeed. Think I should use it?
Before I forget... model was made by Evillejedi and modified by Nomada_Firefox :)
Before I forget... model was made by Evillejedi and modified by Nomada_Firefox :)
Why's it purple?
So what you mean is that the ai doesn't build the new units?
Is it just the angle or do the TIE Fighters seem slightly too big to fit in that hangar? Amazing textures by the way.
But then again, due to its smaller size, the Venator is more agile and harder to hit if I'm not mistaken, thus giving it another advantage over the ISD, as long as the ISD doesn't use its tractor beam.
What he means is you should make up a list of units you plan to have ingame, along with some concept images, so that potential modelers know what they are up against.
Well, a few coding can change that bit where you can't place structures by yourself. I'm sure it's possible to start with an MDU like unit that can build a command centre, which can build MDU's for other structures or sumthin ^^
Uhm no.. whoever -1 that agrees that this person is a disgrace for the LGBT community.
That's so much better. Amazing work as always :)
Well yeah that's also important indeed ^^ But I was referring to the types. You see, in vanilla you have only temperate, swamp, forest, desert, volcanic, arctic, urban and space while there are far more possibilities :P you know what I mean? xD
Did you also reflect on individual planet types, such as volcanic, arctic etc.? Feel free to message for ideas ^^
I see Leviathans, Recusants and Krayt Destroyers. What faction is this? Pirates?
Interesting map but textures seem repetitive.. Try to use a little more variation on future maps, it'll make a difference :)
Oh by the way... what do you mean with finish mods, and you always 'finish your mods'? This mod has been up for multiple years and I still haven't gotten to play a stable version in my opinion. Also, Geroenimo might have a slower development pace, but he actually delivers quality that I like playing. Your mod basically is nothing but a mass production of overly detailed, lag producing overpowered units. Your mod might have some features that you claim to be unique, but I never enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed ORAW, since that mod actually is balanced and the ai doesn't have these bizarre advantages, such as free SSD's during skirmish battles.
And finally, ORAW might have ceased development for the time being, but I am sure he has a valid reason for that.
Have a nice day :)
Can you still load previously saved games when this is installed?
It's a good thing to start out with
Do you mean the ship? I don't seem to notice anything else that might look like a weird box :P
I know that, and I am not shoving copyright claims under your nose, so you don't have to defend yourself, okay? I know it came from Warb since I use this station in my personal mod =)
I must admit that slightly resembles Narn architecture.
Wow, XAAT anywone? Nice model :)
It's the flagship if Admiral Giell if I am correct.
wow, just wow.
Thanks! I'll take care :)
Then please give me 1 good reason why on Earth I should name a ship, which symbols the only hope for humanities survival after someone who tried to eliminate an entire religion!!!
Oh I see, so this happens with any faction, because I did notice, when playing 2v2, and the allied ai summoned a reinforcement fleet of a Hero, the ships were mine to command, and if I played mirror mode, so Rebel vs Rebel p.e. I also got the units the enemy ai summoned, maybe a way to fix these issues, including the feature you introduced here, you might find the answer among the structure garrisons, when you activate those in skirmish the spawned ships actually are divided among all the players, human and ai alike.
Because, unlike you apparently, I don't agree with AH's views on the world. I wouldn't consider him to be very important in a positive way. Arthur maybe a legend, but he was much more appreciated that the guy you are talking about.
And this feature is GC only? Or does it also work in.Sirmish?
In the map editor you can adjust the texture of the water, so you could change it to clouds i.e.
Is the VSD in the background also Hapan?
Awesome :) I always used those as a back up, and I was nearly invincible lolz
I suggest giving the Republic a dark red team color, like in the movies.
How many faction will be there in the mod?
I also didn't take it as offensive haha :P but I concur that it looked like a swimming pool xD
In that case I need to make the hangar shields more transparent :P
Looking good, can't wait to try it out:)
Or .Corey. I really like the Golans from Thrawns Revenge.
Well, the ai, I am playing GC at hard, from tech one as recommended as the Rebels. In the beginning the Empire spams me with their starting units and afterwards they build out their bases but they don't get additional units. I fixed this for my self by increasing the 'GC contrast' factor in the Difficulty adjustment XML.
It's the 'printscreen' :)
I see, but if it's a shield, wouldn't you rather mesh the entire ship blue then?
Amazing! Is the bridge suppoed to be blue btw?
Great, are these smaller projectiles supposed to be 'cartoon-like'?
hmm, I'd love to see Garm Beld Imblis or however you spell it with the Perigine. And maybe Booster Terrik with the errant Venture
If you intend to make clone troopers I suggest making/getting a new model, but these could also do as some special Stormtroopers
When I see the minimap, I see that you can't pass from north to south, how's that?
A little slender, but asside from that it's great :)
This one's from Halo, right? :D
Much better :) you should put a turret on that curved section in the front (from this perspective) if you aren't already doing that ;)
Waw I'm impressed :) I like the font btw
Are these figthers, or larges sized units? I haven't watched the Trek series so it's hard for me to tell
This is a nice design, but I doubt something, the radius of a LZ is circular, that can't be changed as far as I know. So landing troops in this thing might get buggy when you mis-click and making the transport land in a wall. I have never seen anything like this in any other mod so I do like this idea though.
Cool, I really enjoyed reading this :) I also know a few misconceptions, like, spaceships can't make sounds in space. And when a space ship get's hit by a projectile, it won't keep moving straight forward but would basically move by the laws of gravity, don't know how to explain in English :P
If that can be coded yes, they are used for taking over small ships, up to cruisers
aparently they these are from a free release pack on File/Gamefront
Wait a second, does this mean it's released? Yaay =D
That's a bug, which I could fix, but this project is dead so I'm not doing it
What do you mean by 'vsd'?
I agree that it's hard to see in this footage but as the Sith destroyer is getting more damaged, you can clearly see smoks coming out of the destroyed hp's
This is not true, you can make hardpoints invisible and destroy them on by one, I tried it myself, take a look at this p.e. Youtube.com Hardpoints are untargetable but it still works fine
One question, will the hardpoints be the same as in Alliance (Do all the ships have a lot of hardpoints)? If so, I'd recommend to make them untargetable but still destroyable, a ship covered with green dots looks weird, especially when there are many hardpoints, but that is just my opinion, it's your mod after all
Now that I took a closer look I indeed noticed that the texture needs work, it kinda looks like it's made out of some kind of bricks.
I agree with the particles, and I also suggest to scale down the fighters, but aside from that, the model is rlly amazing, nice engine glow
Why is it green?
Is that in positive or negative context?
But aside from that, are the models, in your opinion good enough to be used in the mod?
First we make all the models, then we convert them, skin them and rig them and all that stuff and then theh'll be put ingame I learned from my mistakes and I won't screw up again
The reason behind that will be explained in the novel, shortly it's because the Earth Alliance didn't had the ideal fuel for space travel and therefore their ships have large engines to store large amounts of fuel :P
Can these be blocked by the shield Generator?
It doesn't say how to counter it
OH YEAH, I love ground starships :D But, did you take account of the fact that these will outgun you if you don't have an equalivent, or perhaps a velocity or ion canon on the ground that fires at it?
oh yeah :D
And does at fly at the same altitude as A hover tank or does it fly higher?
So you're telling it moves like the Assault-Speeders or the Gallofree HTTs?
How about these?
To be honest, the icon looks like two rocks.
Yeah it is, there used to be a rebel lvl 3 base up there, but when I deployed the station it lasted 5 seconds so I'm gonna fix that and give all the factions a weapon like that, but also, if you've watched Babylon 5, you see that beam canons are supposed to be that powerful
I totally lost it now, who are the bad guys? You or yzvaw?
They're based on Babylon 5 lol :P
It's a combination of the Hammerhead cruiser from Star Wars and the Nova-Class Destroyer from Babylon 5 :P
Why not do both lol?
Yeah, they're quite awesome, but these are also some of the most popular songs lol, if you dig in deeper in their discography you'll find far more awesome tracks :D
Idk, I've always seen them in legacy era mods, so I'm not used to them being in this era, but hey, prove me wrong :P
I've also seen this in the new foc remastered mod, not that I don't trust you but are you sure you made it yourself?
Are these turrets rotating ones? :P
I suggest adding more dedail to the red part, aside from that, the model is amazing :P
The recusant-class isn't supposed to have a fighter bay as far as I know
Very nice so far, will it feature Kingdom Hearts?
Okay guys, before you start saying anything, I got this song from a music app on my phone, I don't know who the origional author was or if it's copyrightet, if you know this song please tell me so I can give the author proper credit, thank you
Try the Youtube version instead : Youtube.com
Better textures, new projectiles, resized units, new ship to ship combat system and a hand full of new units
Sorry but I don't quite get what you're talking about :\
Universal Studios -________-
Lmfao I was just geussing lol, perhaps I'm force sensitive ;D
Ultra light assault vehicle or something lol? no idea XDDD
nice, how much does it take to get through it?
Firefoxccmods.com or something like that
Nice concept, I'm looking forward to the model and ingame footage
Strange.. but in an awesome way :D
Hey, bedankt voor de feedback. Ik zal morgen eens kijken. Btw dit is gewoon een.WIP concept en is du nog lang niet klaar om in de mod te zetten, eerst ga ik het idd nog perfectionaliseren. :P
Hey, you're back :) keep it up bro' :D
Thanks, positive comments mean very much from me and make want to continue the mod even more, especially when they come from you.
That sounds grand. can't wait to play the next version. :D
I think he isn't, these smoke things are also used in a multiplayer map from Battlefield Bad Company 2 :P they're used to tell aircraft and stuff where to land :P
WOW I've got no words for this. Truly amazing.
Obviously yes! We're now making all the models for the alpha release, once they're done we'll start the skinning, rigging and coding.
Then you should try redoing the entire planet texture
I made up a faction called the 'timelords' I never heard of the Timelords from Doctor Who
Thanks man, that means very much to me. :D
It's because they have the most advanced tech. :P wait 'till you see the phase 5 Earth Alliance and Imperial space armada. I'm making some sketches atm. You'll be mind blown. ;)
I love Adeles face XDDDDDDDD
As I said in the video, I'm going to slim down the fleets spawned
So, there are also different stations? (Like Star wars stations on Star Wars planets and Halo stations on Halo planets)
Hey, ik ben het Melvin Winthagen :D
Good idea :) actually when we finished Earth at War I'm planning to launch a new mod: Evelution at war (Major era's of humanity: Stone ages, Middle ages, Late medievals, modern age and the space age (Future age)). Once that one's finished I'm going to expand my personal mod into an all era of Star Wars mod.
They´re missile launchers
Sorry for bad grammer I was in a hurry while typing the description :P
My god, it's beautiful! :D
Uhm... what's edited if I may ask?
But the story IS about the mod
Alaxander Assault craft
Pluto space map WIP
Cluster missile projectile WIP
F-17 assault fighter
Corusca land map WIP
Lol, thanks, I´m uploading another episode :D
Well, the actual unit is from the game Kingdom Hearts and it's also a space ship there, also something you can't see in this pic is that there are engines on its back.
You should get a mod launcher, it's much easier
Okay, thanks for the tip :) Also I'm having problems with making curved objects. Could you give me some tips for that?
I'm not good at Spanish but I think the goal is: Sabotage the long range scanner above Dathomir. Am I right?
It's Thrawns Star destroyer, the blackness is a texture bug :P
It's MUCH stronger than it looks and there are more far more awesome desings
Google Sketchup :)
Lol, you're welcome :P
Nice. Here's a quick tip: Try using more textures and height veriations to give the map a more realistic look :)
We're working on it, that's why the title says : WIP
Very nice, I love the amount of detail in it.
This is my debut to moddeling btw.
That's why I became an Atheïst XDDDDDDDD
Nice one, but the shield generators sgould be closer to each other and there's supposed to be a hangar underneath those 4 turrets. beside of that it's perfect :)
Wow. Amazing :D
Very nice, I love your planets Burntstrobe :D
Sure why not :P
Long story lol. I've put the spawn point marker upside down in this map wich means that ships will enter the map upside down xD But don't worry. This map is for personal use and won't be in the mod
I think you should lift them a bit so they aren't in the ground
Well that's a lot of population points o.O
Don't mind the Corvette. It hasn't been scaled yet
I'm a mapper. :)
We learned that C^2=A^2+B^2=3^2+4^2=9+16=25, and ratix (Or however you call it) of 25=5 so C=5 :)
Isn´t this the Death star map from Yoden=
Awesomeness :D I love the projectiles :)
Yeah! The OG-9 Homig spider :D I love those walkers :P
And I'm helping too with this mod :P
Lol, is he married? I've heard that Selena dumped him :P
This would be nice as a heavy Earth Alliance frigate
It´s a Dutch ambulance btw.
we had that with Math last year ^^
Lol I know :) Btw this is not my mod. This is the Galaxies at war mod
Hey chill out man. We're working on it to get the new units ingame and stuff. These Star destroyers are only temporary
Lolz. I hope Iceviper doesn't see this :P but how do you like it?
Okay. Am I really the only one who took part of this competition o.O
Nice. They could serve as the transprots for the Black hole pirates. Here are the concepts of them: Moddb.com Moddb.com
I think this should be an imperial escort frigate
No I ussed a modified A-Wing for the squadron, a smaller one
Please comment :)
But about your mapping contest. Should it be a space or land map?
Alright, I shall add in some stars and nebuleas then :P
Good work. I like the nebulae ^^
Thanks :D However I couldn't finish it. The map editor suddenly froze :(
Nice one :P
Alright, but I can't find a thing about rigging. Do you know where I can find a program to rig and a tutorial?
It's going to bea skydome in my mod :P this is just a pic I found on google :P
TIE Pinger? What will they look like? I don't suppose that they're flying blackberrys :P
I suggest adding a skydome. That makes the map look more realistic
There are many mods who use ships from other games. Like: Sci-fi at war and Eve at war for example. Why are they still alive then with releases and so on?
Comments saying he stole this from a game/mod will be deleted because *SGU*TheDestiny mades his models himself
Wow, I've got no words for this. This is AM-AZ-ING :D
And this as an elite fighter :P
This might be good as a heavy bomber
Wow, very nice. Can you post me a URL of the mods official page in a pm?
Nice, are those window like things in the front hangars?
How about a hero transport for the Earth Alliance? (A ship that drops the heroes on battlefield)
I can also help you with the mapmaking if you want, and I can aslo do some minor coding.
And these skydomes are only temporary (Or however you spell it :P) we're going to create our own skydomes.
This was included with a texture pack called 'Jeffs texture pack' these nebuleas are for public use
That's the official name but I think I'll change it in something else :P
Very nice, what are those green/blue looking things? Laser beams?
The small one is the Lictor Dungeon ships and the big one is the Galactic class Star destroyer I think
LOLZ Hypervelocity Acclamators :) guess the Rebels have ion canons then. Btw, what happended with the TIE Bomber skin?
I think I understand it. Btw do you know what line in the xml file is about the texture?
Laser beams? I think it's more realistic to give it missiles
My best map is Corulag invation, I think I'm putting it on Filefront
Nice music :)
Is it the droids being big or the TIE Crawler being small?
I just like drawing :)
Nice weapons you've got here, but don't you think the Consortium is too powerfull? I suggest to bring more balance
That is the victory 2 class, the victory 1 class is the vanilla one
Would you also like helping me with my mod? Please send me a pm if you want to :P
We will use new models with more detail
So you're the one with this mod... honestly I don't like such mods :/
you play dark orbit?
I'm exited now, it's only 9.40 AM (In my country) and you've already made my day :D
Very nice :P
Dude, this is the vanilla model!
Wow, that's a lot of stations. I always wanted to have a good fortified space base :D
Okay, but where can I find modding tools and where can I get a tutorial for them?
Feel free to leave your comment :)
A long time ago I got it from a texture pack and I modified it a bit, and I have a very good videocard :)
This story is very good, are you going to make more?
Cool, I didn't knew that a land main menu battle was possible
Hey, I can also add some new music if you want to
Nice one, looks like a bad *** heavy carrier
Probalby yes, but not sure yet. It'll probalby a mining planet where you can build gas extractors
Click view original if you can't read the affilications
Lol, it's Aeten II not Aten II :). Just saying
You should make all those minor factions active, that would make GC more fun and challenging
Would you like to know to make the Black hole pirates active?
Wings aren't needed in space
What's that dropship in the background?
Looks fine but the shield generator shouldn't be red, only the shield generator on the ship from Obi-wan and Yuralen was red
Sure good idea
That's what we're planning, this is the lvl 5 design. Lvl 1 will have 1 arm and by each lvl up an extra arm will be added
Again model made by Thread and all credit goes to him
This model is made by Thread so all credit goes to him
It should be more realistic to put space junk there because there is many space junk around ourd, think of all those fuel pods that those space rockets leave behind for example
Then you should complain to kkb, he made the map but we could change it into space junk
It's supposed to look like a small castle thats why they look so piramyd like
I meant The world that never was lol
What's that planet below?
It's just the angle, I haven't changed the size of it
lol, looks like the rebel starbase, still looks good tough.
I suspose you can have only one of these?
I meant Attck lol, not the Kill
Looks good, btw it's Gilad Palleon
Looks good enough, I suspect the laser canons are in it's wings right?
nice, but don't you tink the Trandoshian shuttle is better as a hero transport, a good ingantry transport should be a hardcell or a CIS lander
you should suppose some names and let the people vote
Cool, I think the Old Republic has a bit of an advantage if I'm not mistaking
Nice, why a Hutt Palace?
That's because it's so close but I'm still looking for a skinner who can make it look more realistic
Well in GC you have 2 galaxies and you can travel between them using a wormhole
You know what's also a good idea? You should let escape pods launch from a spaceship that gets destroyed
Finlallly, the vanilla capital ships where way to lightly armed
What's the ship's name, and where is it from? Stargate?
Looks good enough, thanks Thread
it's supposed to be a hovering ship but this is a crappy model and I'll get a new model so soon as possible
yes, but the Black hole pirates are more powerfull than the Black sun pirates
Are these yellow dots hardpoints?
I think it's just coding a launch bay in it
hmm, looks good
Probably, I found it on google
Nice, are these imperial vechiles redone?
Cool I like ground starfighters
you should actually give it a deploy ability so the two side wings will lock to attack position
What's the turret on the background?
The Z-95 Headhunter isn't new. Is it?
Nice I like a bit stronger Intredictor
cool will there also be ground star destroyers ingame?
read description, the providence does lack a texture but it's a map editor bug and a new Lucrehulk is coming soon
I meant 3 soundtracks coming right up lol
OMG is this sketchup, looks like empire at war lol
lol thanks :)
yeah, kinda, that'll be explained in the next weekly update where I explain the features
yeah looks cool I think but there won't be a venator in each map xD
the music will also be on the mod I'm working on, it's called foc improvements but I wan tot change it into Earth at war, however the mod's pretty good tough you should realy check it out
what's that planet?
don't you think it's a bit to brown?
cool, but is it only armed with lasers? How about some ion canons or missiles
read discription, I used Z3r0x 3.5 addon to test this map
read the discription, these ships aren't mine I used Z3r0x addon 3.5 to test this map and the rescurants are quite big but it lookes small because the Lucrehulk is very large
nice looks like a walker that can run very fast if I'm not mistaking
cool ship, want to be modeler in my mod?
I know, it isn't supposed to sound like star wars
hey I'm good at space mapping so if you need a space mapper...
are you also going to add new paraticles?
I'm good with space mapping and i can work 4 hours a day
please don't say anything obout that it is on the wrong place because the site automatically linked it to this group, don't know why
btw do you know some good modders because I want to start a new mod but I first need a team.
is stargate in it?
I'm good with space mapping
cool you're back! I thought this mod was dead
isn't it a hammerhead frigate from the old repulic
great I was thinking that u where dead
hi, thnx 4 sending me a friend request. btw you play the same eaw mods I (saw it in your reviews). do you also own some mods?
I did what it said but the ai won't build units ( they are not inactive because they upgrade and move starting units)
nice it's main menu btw
