If you need a crack shot, pilot, or just a good old fashioned Sci-Fi brainiac, gimme a call!
Good progress so far.
Don't know what to say about the side-wide heal on the republic side. I'd probably have to play it myself.
To address your little "Peanut Gallery", I see the new Battlefront going one of 3 ways:
1: EA's gonna rush it all to hell, pouring the lion's share of the budget into advertising and whips to use on the dev team, resulting in a buggy, _blatantly_ unfinished product. (But then, what else is new?)
2. It's gonna be a mediocre, competent game that will be generally decently received, but certain business practices will still be hanging around like the smell of a trash compactor that hasn't been emptied for a month.
3. It'll be a pretty awesome game, marred by its publisher-exclusive platform (*cough* Origin *cough*), and quite possibly also suffer those same business practices.
I never liked the Disney-EA agreement, whole thing strikes me with a pretty blatant lack of research on Disney's part. Find the biggest publisher in existence and give them the job. Even a simple google search would probably show no less than 2000 hate-articles on them.
In any case, I see this mod in the way that Jim Sterling and Ben Croshaw see lower-profile titles in the off seasons, snacky bits of content to tide us over for the big releases.
Sweet, merciful crap did this one turn blog-tastic.
"To stupidity and beyond!"
I am definitely a believer in this phrase... I just never thought I'd see it taken to such a catastrophic extreme...
We laughed, we cried, we blew $#!T up! Then we got on a train bound for Closureville with a slight detour to Epic City only for it to derail and ram full speed into the Great Wall of China 3 miles short of the station.
Beau-ti-ful... Wonder if that'll be dotting alien skies in the next few centuries... Or, if we're just gonna sit our ***** here until the sun explodes... Oh well, seeing this makes me hopeful...
"Crysis meets Iron Man meets Metal Gear" is what it is!
Looks better and better every time I visit! Keep it up!
Maybe it's meant to look like a tank (L4D) or something... The only thing that it really needs to sell the scary-factor are those eyes... Those damn burning eyes *shudder*... If a glare could kill, those eyes would incinerate..
Kinda hard to see a pitch-black ship against an almost pitch black starfield (lol)... But yeah, I agree the Prowler needs more of a SR-71/B2/F-117 feel to the skin to be considered a "Stealth Recon" or whatever class of spy-ship it is (I don't pay much attention to the stealthy ships... Wait... THAT'S THE POINT! LOL!)
So true... So true...
I cincerely hope the un-nerf the sniper rifle... they probably ****** off about half of the player population just from doing that (which is why I haven't played the game since... I dunno WHICH patch...)
Those beats made me smile, That vid's SO goin' on my fav list!
been waiting a LONG TIME for this... awesome job!
What about a mix? Humans obviously had to start with the more common slugthrowers we use today, but they gradually implemented stolen tech from skynet, so a healthy mix of "Conventional" and laser weaponry would probably be the best way to go...
I've noticed the empty servers too... That's why I'm on the fence about even letting this game/mod-combo stay on my machine as long as I have... C'mon guys! What's the deal? When I first started playing this there were at least a half-dozen PACKED servers!
Makes me want to ask, is this in progress, or DAMN-NEAR-finished?
Lookin' good, keep it up!
This mod looks better and better as time goes by... To the point that I'll consider knocking the dust off of my copy of MaB just to try this again (I played one of the earlier releases, a beta I think...). Keep up the good work fellas... And I can't wait to see the final product of your hard work!
As beautiful as this image is, the word "bloodbath" is flashing through my head... For obvious reasons...
Looks good... I'm glad you guys went back and re-evaluated the Dropship turret, that, and the pain-in-the-*** flood that kept blowing me up on my way out of the control center (Which I think you guys should ALSO take a look at, it kills me on ANY difficulty... It SUCKS), were the only REAL reasons I tended to avoid playing this otherwise AWESOME mod... Keep up those revisions guys! You're makin' a lotta gamers very happy!
P.S. Do you guys happen to need testers or anything? I am capable of making detailed reports on anything OTO (Out of The Ordinary)... Drop me a line!
And on that note, UN-**** the Sniper Rifle... It used to be a precision tool of DOOM, it made the scout a desireable class... Now all you see are these AR/MG/Rocket/Mortar jockeys running around mowing everybody down... It's sickening, that's what it is...
Heh, If anyone ever sees that control pod peek over the rooftops they'd better take cover! But seriously, these are great updates and I can't wait for this patch to breathe new life into the mod... Keep it up!
Nice to see you guys back! Just give me a populated server, and I'll knock the digital dust off this mod and go in guns blazing!
"Frye, it was horrible! There were ones and zeroes everywhere! And I think I saw a TWO!"
"There there, Bender. There's no such thing as two."
"MOICHENDIZING MOICHENDIZING, Where da REAL money from the movie is made!". Heh, that line was SO true!
Heh... It sure dosen't!
Don't forget the Death Star! I mean it's only the size of a SMALL MOON!... And that's not even MENTIONING the OTHER planetary-sized constructs...
Great argument... I agree with you... Star Wars has the fantasy factor (The Force), Trek has the tech factor (Science fiction at its finest), but Mass Effect has sheer SCALE (MINOR SPOILER: I mean a cycle of galaxy-wide extinction that leads up to these simply TITANIC battles? W00T!)
So in conclusion... To each his own, I'm a member of all three camps, waiting for the next big thing from each!
Damnded broken reply button... If you need me I'll be in the "Angry Dome"!
Man... I watched the "All Your History Are Belong To Us" on Apogee and 3D Realms... Man the story on this game is sad...
AYHABTU: Apogee and 3D Realms Pt.1 Youtube.com
Megadeth - Grabbag... It rocks!
Ah, I see you've captured Corellia's typical saucer-shaped ship profile (WHERE CAN I GET ONE OF THOSE?!)! Well done! I was afraid noone else would catch that little detail... Keep up the good work guys! Looking better and better with each new update!
As sporadic as these updates have been, I've yet to see a bad one (other than when you guys shut down...) Keep up the great work! Can't wait to shred waves with the other Lifters out there! *Two Devil Horns(aka "Rock On" hand gesture) WAY way up!*
But wouldn't that put it in a state of increased passage of time and allow it to just target the relatively slow moving humans and just gun them down? (And cue the Temporal Mechanics debate!)
Those HKs better WATCH OUT!... TechCom's comin'!
Love that Joker is in the appropriate place... Gotta love that!
Someone has to say it... "CRAB-BATTLE!!!"
There's always next year! Seriously guys, SIGN UP NEXT YEAR!
War IS hell... You just haven't been in it! (lol)
Now THAT'S saying something! (I agree, it is as good if not BETTER than Crysis...)
If the Assault Rifle look THIS EPIC... Makes me wonder what the Sniper Rifle is gonna look like!
Well, on the news post I asked to see more ice, and that's precisely what I got. Top-shelf, people!
But seeing those weapons laying on/against those walls/crates makes me wonder if those are interactive, or just for scenery. You know, ready at a moment's notice.
If the damnded servers weren't empty I'd play a lot more... maybe they were just empty at the time, but I wanna see a lot more activity before I start playing... Great concept though!
then why the blast is Moddb not tagging it as such? does it have to be reported or something?
It took me a second to fully get the joke, I knew they were spray cans, but then I *barely* say RAID painted on the front, then I practically fell outta my chair...
would be fun to watch,
would be JUST as fun to have it as either a superweapon or orbital bombardment (bio-weapon spray)...
maybe even a special unit that INSTEAD of a flamethrower, use a HUGE RAID CAN!
