I dont make mods but I love playing them! I get mods for sins of a solar empire and star wars empire at war mostly, but I also play Garrysmod, If that even counts.......
I always love ship lights
don't know anything about game of thrones, but it still looks pretty cool
strange, my old PC was a dual 3.0ghz processor with only a integrated video card. I bought a dedicated video card (Only a GT 430, much better than nothing) and that sent me over 60 FPS, where the videos of the EVE mod I have on youtube were only 20-30fps and that was before my graphics card.
huh, back when I had my old PC and I without a graphics card, and then I installed one, I could have sworn my FPS increased a good measure.
will this be built into future releases? I hope so
I can't recall what planet it was so it probably won't be much help, but I just moved my fleet to a planet as Omega and it just crashed, before I even had a loading screen, just right when they went into the slot above the planet.
wow, this mod is very unique, this looks awesome.
They are basically Russia in this setting, that is why they are using Russian flags and such.
One of my favorite sins mods, always glad to see progress :D
sweet, now we have both of the ones for the HUD and for the zoomed out icons
Great model and video as always, but what is that music? I think I have heard it before somewhere, but never found out what it was
Sweet, haven't played this in months, gonna play it all weekend :D
Now that you point it out, they kinda do
very cool, from these angles the gap in the front looks long, as it should. The previous picture made it look stubby.
interesting backstory, like the rusting effect on them too. Where will these be seen?
I like the one on the right with the plates
Ha, putting star wars ships into sins used to be the big thing, now people are putting sins ships in star wars! Kinda funny, but cool
I don't think its that bad, some mods do it well, but I actually think vanilla land battles are pretty fun, though yes space is better.
Space only GC, should be AWESOME
Man I love ship lights
oh, right, my bad. Was thinking it was old republic because of all the other ships from that era. Disregard that.
Bit too much of a star destroyer to fit in this era Imo, and I was just asking about the tail, it just looks more...pronounced here. Good job going from a single side pic to a full model though. Looks nice
earliest form of a star destroyer it looks like. Not talking about your modeling, but what were the giant triangles above and below the engines for? They don't look practical unless there are more guns on them lol.
Dat pirates of the Caribbean theme tho
loving the ship lights
looks like a constructor
Sony owns the rights to Star Wars music? Would have thought it would be Disney.
Then why does no other mod get in trouble for using the music? A star wars mod without star wars music is just kinda....strange
I would be fine with that, and that's what everybody else does. If not, its easy to replace for personal use. Maybe they are just trying to make sure there is no chance of copyright issues.
ooh pretty skybox!
Was that originally a Punisher?
will they spawn different trade ships depending on faction?
elites are cooler than brutes. The halo 2 brutes come close thoug, always thought the rampage thing was cool and wondered why they removed it and basically made bigger elites in halo 3
I forget, will this mod have permadeath for heroes? And will the AI use this ship's ability correctly? or at all?
cool, this should be interesting.
Good to see these are being shared around the sins community, these are gorgeous.
huh, could have sworn when pentastar was released and people were wondering why they were not doing anything one of you guys said that the game could only have 2 active AIs at the time and it could not be changed.
Or it was just a figment of my imagination screwing with me.
I thought that was hardcoded? How did you manage to get around that?
wow, Can't wait to actually be able to use this. those fire effects are awesome. Too bad the game/engine does not deal with all these additions very well. Imagine this mod with a buttery smooth 60FPS in a huge battle *drool*
wow that's cool! what do you mean by progressive ones though? You mean the main 4?
so wait, now the 4th main faction plus the minor factions will all work now?
I got out of EAW mods for a while, and if it was there I probably didn't use it, so this was the first time it was brought to my attention I guess.
huh, I have never seen this before, looks cool.
Personally I think the way the ship is modeled looks better than most mon cals I have seen, but that's just me.
well it looks good for something you hate doing
Only thing I could think of would be that if you use this as a building, you can build some sort of scout/drone that does the same things as the Empire's Probe droids in vanilla EAW
well..... ok then
thats expensive for a non gaming PC, I got my setup for 500$ with a 1920X1080 monitor off Ebay... anyway we derailed this, we should probably stop
yea, I have that issue a LOT when I play that mod, good to see it won't happen here. can't wait to play it when its done.
so you are saying that it is hard right now, and you are trying to fix it by balancing, but you wont see a fleet above a non choke point planet?
I wouldn't use a laptop for gaming IMO
well good, will make GC fun again, as long as they aren't as hard as the AI from RAW
ha, I have not seen this ship anywhere since BF2!
dunno if it really fits though to be honest. Every time I hear it now I am just going to think of pokemon, not epic space battles. If you have not already, I would check out some two steps from hell, they are good at making even the minor things seem epic.
Really? Pokemon? you are right you are a dork XD
That design is.... Different, in a good way! Dunno if it will fit in with my sith/republic ships when I take moncal though
haha nice one
This + harrowers, all the ships I will build :D
Not many planets, will you add more as you go?
looks great! I like all the icons, especially the one showing the inside of the ball things on star destroyers, always wondered what was in those
If I see em I will give em a read. surprisingly where I found the books was in my high school library, they had the whole set of books on the time period I described above.
honestly that was the only reason I really read books at all was because I did not have anything else to do in school, have not read anything in leisure time in years.
by the picture I just thought it looked cool :p
I really have no idea what anything you said about it meant, I read the thrawn series of books a few years back and just latched onto his character, don't know much about him besides that he tried to reform the empire and take down the new republic, which he almost did.
Well that's good, if you don't mind me asking how many research stations it take to get the two heroes? I normally just spam capital ships anyway
personally I like this portrait better:
but still, yay my favorite character in star wars got to be a hero! How long does it take to get him on average? will probably be the first one I get
ah, the desc said the last of the three heroes, so I thought that the other two had been revealed and I missed em.
I still hope that the third revealed one is thrawn :D
is thrawn a hero? I don't remember the what the other two are. hope he is, I love thrawn
Honestly, I got to the elite four in those, but never got past them. I still have to do that at some point
oh cool, PVP! if only I had some friends who were willing to play this with me...
also, I have not played in a few months (though I should) how do you get to the gen 1 map? whenever I start I am in the gen 2 area.
actually I do believe that is a default background, just not a very common one. to change them in game easily, just go into effects options while a game is loaded and keep enabling then disabling colored skyboxes (or whatever they are called there, i forget) until you get one you like
Oh so that's what the eyeball does, I always just clicked "watch this mod" on the bottom of that box :p
hmm maybe it just seemed like they had one on every planet :p
all you would hear late game is the announcer saying a weapon was fired
sounds good, that would be extremely OP otherwise. will the AI actually build and use them?
all sounds good, hope the AI wont try to spam those IR superweapons. though you said you would fix it to prevent that hopefully.
I remember back in diplomacy before they added the limit to superweapons and late game almost every planet the AI controlled had a superweapon on it
"ohhh man I am soooo high right now, you dont- you dont even know man"
this is really not the place for it, as far as I know minidumps are for devs, not modders. plus you should have put it on a file sharing site and linked it to him in am PM so as to not show that the mod had an update and confuse people. not trying to insult, just maybe do that next time
lol why is this here?
I just got around to downloading the last version that took like 5 hours thanks to moddb and I really dont feel like downloading it again currently. Will I be missing anything good?
good to see more progress though
weird, i swear almost everything in ME2 Cerberus was orange, that is the one i am going back through again
I thought it was orange
that's pretty freakin creepy. but yay an update!
ooh nice titan abilities, though I don't like sacrificing my own ships, that fits them perfectly. In bloodlust does that mean friendly, enemy, or both sides ships die you get more damage? I love abilities that let you take over other factions ships, hope nephilim get one too
Heh its whatever order you want to do them in. Its your mod, go at your own pace. This mod is less well known and not based off anything super popular, so there are not a crapton of fanboys asking for a release date and raging if you miss it. The people that watch this mod won't keep asking you for release dates all the time especially if they know that you are working by yourself in only free time. This is amazing for a 1 man project
oh cool sounds good. what about the addon effects? Its been a long while since I played sins, did you already have the addon effects? I don't remember.
also, did you change any of the moons abilities yet? because I still find them inferior to starbases. especially when I need to have my starbase in a particular spot for defense purposes and it says there is one there already because of the moon. I did find a work around though, if you build the starbase then colonize the moon, it lets you have both. but can you make it so we can have both normally?
oh sweet, second favorite faction in rebellion! when this is done do we get just this faction, or are the rogues re-included in the download?
cool, cant wait for the other factions. does this include the cool main menu things you made?
oh, this will be cool
no way to convert them like the rest of these ships? I would think that all eve ships would be WAY too high poly for sins. what makes the freighters have more polys than titans and such?
but the refinery ships wont be race specific industrials? oh well that's good too.
will the trade ships be the races haulers? (I forget what they are actually called)
oh sweetness, which one will act as what? and will it be possible to have those moving lights on the stations or not?
EVE always had amazing skyboxes. The sectors I end up in always have such dull ones....
I am interested in the trade aspect, will the NPC trade ships dock and trade their stuff too? or is it completely player dependant? Is there a way to build one in single player too?
yay! cant wait to see their other capital too
Um with what may I ask?
yes, that looks very nice. the stars going with actual colors and nebula is better than just stars in black sky in my opinion. looks cool
Hmm they look kinda dirty, with those darker grey spots. what about the normandy, that was all shiny when you got it in ME2
oh ok, that makes sense. so like in TR all ships will be able to shoot at fighters and whatnot, so there will not be any dedicated anti fighter frigate? just trying to get the image of what you are saying correct.
will that mean then that the SSD for the imperial remnant be built from a capital ship bay instead of the titan thing? trying not to push, just understand. I realize that you may not have planned this yet
ooh yay hand stuff! but if this is the biggest ship the hand can have, will that mean its their titan? or how will the titan system work for them?
This one seems to modern day for star wars though
what were those reasons? I am curious now
really the only thing that can kill fighters/bombers in sins are the flak frigates of each race, a capital ship special ability, or other fighters/bombers. I dont remember if corvettes do or not, I still play diplomacy more than rebellion. hope we get to see some hand stuff, they are my favorite faction
kinda wish someone would make a mod that was land units from the kotor era, I liked the shiny sith trooper armor
never seen em before, where they from?
sounds very good to me
wait does this mean just that server is going down or is the online mod going dead?
if I had glasses in my mass effect games, my character would look almost exactly like freeman without the suit
good thing cerberus are not geth
hmm, well the team from sins of new eden got the skyboxes to work in sins, so you might be able to ask there, but I have no idea what res they are
getting custom eve skyboxes too? that would be amazing
know this is a late comment, but I play eve and I really dont see any ships that look similar. but that may just be me
I thought the center platform had a roof on it. though I could be wrong. have not played Battlefront in years
lol I have had more without cheats or mods :p
one time when I played replicators, at the begining of a round, I thought I clicked rename, but It was self destruct :(
the explosions are a bit small though
nice halo music too
sweet, cant wait to try it
so this and the other patches? or the others included with this one? I have not gotten any other patches yet
wow very nice, should have had caldari rock playing :p
good old fashoned orange beams. I dont like them being blue. orange looks better
Too bad I still dont know ships by name :p
Awesome! so I havnt been following this mod long, how are the minmatarr? or have you not started them or have you completed them already? just wondering...
will the smaller fighters be in there too?
lol this is the video I linked on youtube on the rebellion moddb page
finally! I had to wait for it here because the other sites were going at 29-90kb/s(mostly stuck at 20) this one is going at 130, which is better but still not what I get on steam :\ but still I cant wait to play this tomorrow!
these were very cool looking in eve. I think caldari had the most spontanious ship and station types. they look completely random.
Hmm never thought about an industrial ship having repair stuff on them. but how many high slots do charons have? oh yea dosnt matter its a mod :p
does it to me too, been doing that a lot with that site lately
ooh SKYBOXES! I am loving this! but wouldnt it be more realistic if the gold skybox was on a yellow star? just wondering
looks very good, but why does the new republic get star destroyers? arent those an empire type of thing?
I remember boz pity from renegade squadron, but it was civil war only :\ will there be burial pits and stuff too?
TEC have 2 titans? this one and the circular one from the video? they both look human made
no stations? oh well, titans will be fun...... avatar FTW
will there actually be a BIG laser for the avatar? because it would be akward if there was just a few tiny normal beam lasers that come from it that do a crapton of damage XD
NPC's yet? cities be kinda freaky with nobody in them
just a thought, is there any mod (or this one) that includes the droid dispensers from star wars republic commando? I doubt they are cannon because they would run out of droids eventually and they would be overpowered but just a thought :p
yay imperials win! if I were going to choose a side it would have been them
never seen the purple guy before.....
they look like upside down myrmidons with all the armor removed 50 years later. (criticising minmatarr, not devs :p)
do they have the front turrets from halo 2 or the machine gun in front with a person in it from halo 3?
I remember that game, ahh memories. Bu I recently red the book and I didnt like the ending
In the book dash rendar runs into a piece of the station and dies when vader blew it up
but yes nice stations :p
I think the one laying down is the amarr construction yard, like that gallente one thats making that hyperion.
ok cool, will all races stations have tints/lighting effects to them?
so no fancy lighting effects? oh well looks awesome anyway. Not all the stations will be laying flat like that amarr one will they?
also, I know you said you will give it very few small guns and a crappy shield, but will they be actual hardpoints on the station, or just one big health/shield bar?
huh, cool. wonder which the AI will choose to defend. (guessing primary base)
plus, they don't have any supercaps, so we have to have something capable of taking out those without taking too many losses
now that a take another look at it, are the lasers a bit big? or is that just the bloom effect acting up?
ah, I see it now, very nice
just a little thing I don't like in some mods, when there are blue lasers, it confuses me, as I cannot tell what is Ion cannons or just normal lasers. one side green, one red, share blue for ion cannons it what makes the most sense to me
I am new to DoW 2 and the tau was my favorite faction in DoW 1, is there any mod that lets me play the campaign as tau? I saw you said this one is multi only, but is there any mod you know of that has tau for campaign? google yielded no results for me, but I may just not know where to look.
I am new to this mod, I have it on steam, and I got the download and patches correctly installed, as I see your splash screen on startup. unless you have done nothing to tau (which I imagine you must have done something) my game is still vanilla as far as I can tell. I have not tested other races yet, as it is getting late here, but I see no changes on the conquest map or in battles as tau. the pop cap is not expanded either.
what could I have done wrong? (I did read the FAQ)
any chance of getting banners from the custom factions, or ones like them? like a skull or something for undead, and a white fist, or holy symbol for clerics
people ask if they can use mods on console all the time. The answer is always no.
why do people keep asking this? if its changing game files in any way, then NO.
so for some reason, all of my undead (all 3 types) like 1/4 of them do not have horses. Some of them did lose their horses in previous battles, but not as many as I have seen running around without them. Is there a way to give their horses back?
honestly, I always thought the old model looked like an actual flying turd...no offense to your modeling skills back then lol
it seems like over the years you went from a more rounded shape of your ships, to more angular models. I like it.
halo 2 was my favorite aesthetically and in the one I played multi in the most. I am completely against remakes most of the time, but it should be interesting to see. from the footage at E3, sounds like the grunts are still using the voices from Halo 2 as well, I love lines they say. Halo 3+ grunts are boring and ugly (Imo)
not trying to sound mean, but from my experience (of following mods a long time) modders hate being bugged about whats going on and release dates. If they have something worthy of mention, they upload a screenshot, video, or news article. Until then, just be patient
he will let us know when he has something, pestering really does nothing
sounds like fun :p
what makes them less accurate right now anyway? in the default game and most mods, infantry almost never miss anything.
I actually like the aspect that infantry will have more of a role than cannon fodder like in most other mods, heck infantry vs infantry fights would actually be interesting instead of tank vs tank. (still want the AI in GC fixed too so we have something to play while we wait for this :p)
I have no idea, I don't mod. was just telling you it was not changed yet and that's why it wasn't doing anything.
hmm sounds intriguing, can I still get an explanation on what they do? last time I tried to become a lich I stopped because my entire army got killed by 1 mage with fireball spell.
The AI is not modded in any way yet, that's why it does not do anything. It does not know what to do with the units from the mod, so it just sits there. He has it working now, it just is not in a public version. if you play GC the AI does nothing at all.
may I ask what gems are used for, or to a forum post that explains them? was training some elves on zombies and have a couple Dawn gems (is what I think they are called, they are yellow) but I have no idea what they are used for.
I would still like a release of knights, the current one is extremely boring since the AI does not fight back at all. Even if it is a bit buggy (as long as it is stable) I would take anything at this point lol
look at some older screenshots and news posts
