Well, okay, it seems I have no choice but to trust you, although I don't see how a Destroyer's anti-frigate kinetic cannons are the same as flak turrets and AAA beams designed for the sole purpose of swatting annoying strikecraft from space.
Also, will the Hiigaran Ion Destroyer be able to upgrade its ion cannons to photon beam cannons like the Battlecruiser and Beam Cannon Frigate?
Well, that could be problematic for balance since the Sobek, Hatshepsut, and Typhon all contain weapons effective against warships and strikecraft, although it does balance out a little since their "frigates" would be completely useless in a fight against anything larger than a corvette.
Will the Vasudan ships mount their canonical armaments, and if not, how nerfed will their firepower be?
Thanks for the link, I'll be sure to try those Shivans out. It's a shame you won't be adding the Terrans, especially because they have the largest list of fan-made designs you can download and convert to HW2's format. There's a huge list on the Hard Light wiki, just search for "user-made ships".
Sweet, Freespace in my HW2. Will you be using purely canon ships, or will you add in fan-made designs? I'm asking because I'm not sure the Vasudans have enough variety in canon ships bigger than fighters to fill all the roles needed in HW2. And please tell me that picture is a trick of the perspective and that Sobek really isn't as big as the Pride of Hiigara.
Any possibility of the Terrans making it in?
xPearse has the right idea. KotOR and the Mandalorian Wars, Clone Wars, GCW, and Legacy Era. Your ship list looks good, especially since it looks like you know there's more to Star Wars than the movies and video games. And by "Adominator", do you mean to say "Admonitor"?
So your goal is to keep FoC mostly intact, yet making stats more realistic? Not a bad goal, especially if you are trying to make this PR-lite. I should warn you about custom hardpoints though, as they will need a unique collision mesh or they will use the ship's collision mesh, meaning they will be able to be targeted and destroyed even the hardpoint is on the other side of the ship from the attacker. Also, I hope you remove destroyable hardpoints as that made EaW into a massive game of "snipe the shield generator", and horribly unbalanced when the Consortium spammed mass drivers.
The Phoenix Rising mod has already done a more canonical version of FoC. I suggest you play that, considering it looks better than this one.
Yeah, this song really isn't Imperial. The chanting is nice, but the percussion beat and brass rhythm ruin it. It sounds too "upbeat" in a way, it should be deeper and more Gothic.
No, I like it hidden on the side. That way its not covering up a good portion of the screen.
Holy ****. That's one huge-*** Xin ship.
The colors seem a bit too saturated. And why does that Blood Raven have a Blood Angels symbol on his chest?
Where's the red paint? Every Ork knows red goes faster.
If this is going forwards, that's good. Its always nice to see new FS2 mods.
Reminds me of the Athena and Artemis from the Freespace games.
This meatbag looks forward to using HK-47.
These guys remind me of Total Annihilation. I guess its the nanite love and the spam tactics.
Can you not have destroyable hardpoints? With destroyable hardpoints the game becomes less tactical and more of who can ninja the most shield generators. Not to mention it makes semi-intact ships worthless as anything but cannon fodder since they have a quarter of the guns and a quarter of the max HP. Bad for skirmish.
This mod isn't for graphics whores. Its for people who want to blow sh*t up. So stop begging him for textures, as they are secondary to all the "WTF BOOM PWNT!" this mod will be bringing. Personally, I like the untextured goofyness his models have. Reminds me of Total Annihilation. Good times, that game.
Damn it, damn it. Must have mod so I can kill Bugs.
In other words, mod looks great.
Very dark, very TPOF.
Wait. Its a probe with guns? Damn. Swarm tactics FTW!
WTF. Is there supposed to be a picture here, because I'm not seeing one.
Is this mod only of the first Wing Commander, or will you be including the other ones?
P.S. Please, no Prophecy in this. That game sucked. Damn Nephilim.
WOOT! Avenger cannon FTW!
Armageddon is here.
Who gets the Mammoth?
Strongest tank for the GLA. Still makes it weaker than the Overlord or Paladin. Unless it makes Overlords quiver in terror?
