Kudos to ND team for the visuals :). I hope this game works out well since i'm a huge fan of NS.
Ps JoseSkinner is right in some ways, but Empires didnt start it ya know, FPS/RTS is indeed nothing "new" (what is?), since HL1 -> NS fame ppl have been working on that "concept".
Its not about who's the first, its about who does it the best. FPS/RTS hybrid is even older than HL1 if i remember correctly, but mostly it gets fuxed and isnt smooth and solid in gameplay so the fame is no where near CS.
Then you have huge succesfull ones like NS, and follow-ups who tend to blend that succes with other smaller factors (who become succesfull because they've learned from the innovators mistakes and shortcomings).
ND's approach i think is to take the strenght of NS, mix that with some sci-fi elements to give them freedom of design and artistic elements, and add CS-style fighting to attract a broad range of ppl.
By focussing on quality in graphics and a smooth gameplay that they know will work, they are working on perfecting a Genre rather than creating one.
They're taking allready existing proven gameplay concepts, altering them slightly with this blend, mixing the best of genre's. -> its not innovation, but they have a big chance of being a succes nevertheless. This approach imo is smart, and a good load of these small design innovative blends end up making it to the top.
Look at DoD, NS and CS, analyse them and try and determine where there succes came from => total new genre? total innovative design? innovative graphics? -> smooth design perfecting existing elements to a solid game.
I wish them luck and am looking forward to this mod :)
oeps, my bad :P
Well, actually Stuffie's (gotta outsource this blame to somebone :P)
But the newspost is about 3 things -> mag scan, winning of noesis pack and announcing the olympics tournement.
If i remember correctly, ND got on frontpage with announcing their mapping tournement, so that pretty much explains it :)
Furthermore i second what Blueworlf said :P, lets keep this from other mods newspost (i remember i had a similar issue once, and simply pm'ed an admin".
Awesome mod! I love the idea :) Keep up the great work!
Dont get me wrong, please post as many bugs and troubles as possible. Preferbly in great detail, cause it allows us to fix it to get it working better.
Hopefully you'll post them on www.isotx.com so we can keep track of em.
Just focus while playing on small player servers, with around 5-7 players tops, that runs best online. LAN games can be higher.
Dont expect us to be able to remove lagg on high amounts of online players (12+) => we just cant get 88+ npc's to run well over the internet (no matter how we code the netcode)...
All in all i hope you guys at least had a bit of fun :)
Stay tuned as more patches are on the way :D
Savage = full RTS with FPS players being the units
Natural Selection = full humans mix all sides of FPS and RTS
IG = 1 RTS team vs rest FPS team = massive AI controlled armies.
Differences in a nutshell :)
Rip-off of what? Half Life 1 or BMS? => arent they both remaking HL1?
I must be missing something here...
Re-read the gameplay, there's a worlds differance between NS and IG gameplay...
Try to play on servers with up to 6 players. We should have hard-coded the limit to 6-8 tops which is a bummer.
Crashes seem to happen on huge amounts of players. Generally, this game is build for Lan-games, but during beta-testing worked fine online too (with up to 7 players).
Its also CPU intensive due to the AI, which i guess fries alot of servers.
Here's the server package:
Have fun ;)
Here's the windows server package:
Client is coming in.. a few hours. Join the release part show of BlueWolf.
Go to www.isotx.com for more info :)
I feel very sad for the Halogen team :( I didnt think Bungee would pull the Blizzard tactic on mods.
Dammit, i was really really looking forward to this one.
I'd also say "accidentally release it", there's no point binning 3 years of hard solid work. Just say you were hacked.
As i mentioned to you in your pm, this is so one-sided and shows you really know little of the situation.
Israeli's didnt all-of-a-sudden walz in, go read the independance and the mandates.
These countries, militia etc all **** over EVERY international rule EVER created, you think a puny country with 6 million jews-christians and muslims would just sit back and follow every rule when they fight those kind of opponents?
Funny actually, wanna know what the difference is between Israel-Syria-Jorden-Lebanon?
A few years... All created in the period 1943-1948, after mandates by France and Brittain ended, and they drew up the country borders.
There is no freekin "stealing-land" motive here, its all a big pile of horse-crap. The Palestinians are created as an excuse so Arab governments like Iran and Syria can legally and morally attack Israel to destroy the Jewish state.
And "reading crap"? Are you seriously so moronic as to think Israel would simply give land to the Palestinians and then put in check-points because... they're evil? Or what?
Come on, read on how "The War Of Attriction" (carried out now in the name of "resistance") started, the further wars, even the independance war, which was sprarked by maraudic arabs raiding Israeli roads.
I ******* saw the destroyed convoys ruins in israel you idiot, thats how it was 60 years ago when Israel was fighting with WW1 weapons to ensure their existance.
And if you think it all evolve around the Palestinians: Go ask the Kurds how hypocrit this situation is, you hardly see all Islamic nations unite to help them, yet 6 million jews with a puny piece of land does, hmmm.
The Palestinians are an excuse, they never existed, Palestine way back before (and during) the British Mandates was a collective of what now is Israel and Palestine = Jews, Christians and Muslims controlled by Brits.
This is an independance war, that is not, and will never be accepted by some fundementalist Arab nations, because Israel's very existance is a thorn in their eye.
Last year funny enough the Palestinian Authorities blamed Hezbollah for attempting to destroy peace-talks between Israel and Palestine by offering insane financial offers to anybody willing to commit a terrorist attack.
Every time Israel and Palestine enter peace-talks it gets torpedoed by some terrorist act, responded by an Israeli reprisal.
Ever read up on the 1983 Lebanon-Israeli peacetalks? on how our Syrian friends killed the leaders and forced Lebanon out of peace with Israel? Its not the first time, Syria and Iran have a long history of pushing other countries to deny Israel peace.
They are all officially still freekin IN A STATE OF WAR WITH ISRAEL, how dumb can you be expecting puny Israel to give up the high-grounds in the Golan Heights to countries that deny peace, and even have mandates allowing organisations like the PLO and Hezbollah to freely operate vs Israel (go read on the Lebanese Civil War and its Cairo Agreements), and on top of that, who have constantly attacked through wars and Wars of Attriction Israel (and still are).
This is but a small piece of the cake, i'll explain more when i have more time.
I have lots of sympathy for the Palestinians, but FFS please look at it in a broader perspective, and the solution lies not only with Israel, its a common mentality thats needs to be crushed: an islamic fascist mentality.
Only when that ends, will the people of the MidEast have peace...
Why wouldnt the Israeli's want peace? Maybe because they are "evil"? and they also kicked my dog, and they are, uhhh
Why dont YOU read some books for a change, this mod is a sick piece of propaganda.
Imagine making a mod called: "Neo-Crusades" which was about walzing around in christian outfits slaughtering muslims.
I think its sick your glorifying the intifada, which is not only cause of many civilian deaths, but also ensured that part of the world will further spiral downwards into mass attrocities by both sides.
Kudo's to morons like you for attempting to turn it into something honourable.
To Chat: GameSurge and on #eSportsTV
That will give you an error -> game wont run.
I'm out of town for some time, head over to our forums and there are plenty of guys that can help you.
Thanks alot dethtoll,
I'll post your link here so people without DivX can still watch it in small format:
For better quality i recommend downloading the AVI :)
Nice stuff! Like the mood in the left image the best.
Keep up the good work! :)
Why would patch 1.04 not work because an ini file is missing?
Ini files are extracted from the zero Hour ini.big, they are not part of the initial instalation so Zero Hour + patches dont need em.
If you have the patch succesfully installed, ModToaster2 will work.
Mec Installer, the installer you downloaded from this moddb page, does not work with The First Decade pack, which is the Zero Hour you're probably using.
ModToaster2 a program also build by us, does work with The First Decade pack. MeC1.5 is on the ModToaster servers ( its a content delivery program for Zero Hour mods).
MeC1.5 is not available as standalone version, so you can download this latest version via ModToaster2.
De Mec Installer doesnt work for The First Decade. Simply use modToaster2 which works for TFD, and install the latest version of mec (1.5) there (which is not available as standalone yet).
Impressive ND! Great quality and great design! Looking forward to this mod :D
Instaleer de mod in je "firstDecade/ZeroHour" folder. Dan werkt ie prima :)
Zorg er dus voor dat de .big files die hij uitpakt in de "zerohour" folder van The First Decade komen te staan.
Als dit allemaal niet lukt: www.isotx.com = modtoaster werkt met the first decade en kun je cnc holland ook downloaden.
MeC2.0 will be available standalone + via modToaster 2.
We'll try to make an installer version for MeC1.5.
How? I mean even the CNC remake mods use a construction vehicle..
Kudo's to you guys! that is indeed some voodoo to get working :P
Amazing work guys! Kudo's to your hard work and dedication.
Yes it works offline.
Just import the mods you want, or download them first
You can import/export packages and host them on your own site etc.
So in short: yes you can, but you'll need packages which you can import/export.
More info on this: www.isotx.com
Check the packages tutorial.
Hope this helps :)
.NET you mean?
