Yes, it is a shame as I prefer the more realistic look myself too. But it is meant to be very moddable so perhaps someone will do something interesting with it. I notice I have been down voted. I was not trying to steal anyone's thunder but thought people might want to know the project existed as I am sure a lot of them played and still play the older games too. cheers.
Still check this site everyday, it is amasing to see how much work you guys put into it tbh.
I hope it is okay if I put this link here, but some of the guys behind TA and SC have started a kickstarter for Planet Annihilation, a kind of sequel to TA. Thought you guys might be interested in the project. A bit cartoony but it might peek your interest.
Really like the top right picture, the side profile, very cool
Great model as always. I was wondering what the tool you refer to allows you to do?
Great, thanks for showing that, good music too :)
As it says at the top the RV Expansion 1.2 will only work with the Infinite War Battle Pack i,e, you must have the DLC for it to work. DLC slows down the computer? haha, sorry, but I have not heard that one before. Trust me, it will not slow down the computer at all.
I have no idea why that has happened but I would suggest deleting the mods, then do the "verify integrity of game cache" on SC2 in Steam which will set the game back to its default files and then put the mods back on, perhaps even from fresh downloads if you really want to make everything new. I would be surprised if that did not work.
I believe they are leaving the vast majority of the original SC2 models alone and are just doing new models for all the SC:FA units and buildings as well as all-new units. There is only one level of shield in SC2 so these are a re-imagining of SC:FA buildings.
Thanks for letting me know and taking a look. It really seems GPG did their best to make things difficult for modders huh.
Therealredmoth: When you do the AI would it be possible to make it able to attack more than one player at the same time?
My brothers and I sometimes like to go against one AI with cheating production + infinite resources + high build restriction. We think it seems to run faster than having several AI but the only problem is it just tends to attack the one player all the time. Thanks
That is a seriously mean looking piece of kit...excellent *evil smile*
Fantastic work. The posture is really good too, captures something special, not quite sure how to word it, it has real character and life to it. One of your best yet.
Looks good. Does the halo do anything? Might be cool if it rotated and glowed and shot out little lasers to take down rockets and missiles? Nice work!
With the Czar and experimental bomber I feel the Aeon actually have more attack options than the Cybran. With all the new units things should be quite different though so it will be interesting to see.
I like this one, a bit beefier than the previous version and that is definitely a good thing for major experimentals I think. Looking forward to seeing the swarm missiles launched, guessing each mini-missile will take out a tech1 tank in one shot at the very least, so a fountain of explosive destruction should be visually pretty cool.
Thanks for putting up the new video, I really like the separation of the war head in to many smaller ones while in the air, very cool :)
Impressive that you have gone into coding this type of thing too. Will you use a version of this model at all now that you have the newer replacement? I do like the athletic look of this one so it would be a shame not to see it in the game, though I agree the new one fits the name 'Hammer' much better.
I was going to suggest gaining points for killing units AND killing buildings but that may just cancel things out too much. Perhaps gaining points for killing just buildings? It would promote more attacking play perhaps, which I think was the original intention of the points for unit killing. Just an incomplete thought :)
I think it looks good, circular parts are a strong motif for the Aeon but that doesn't mean everything has to be. Really like the idea of physical changes with high veteran experience or with new upgrades, all adds to the flavour.
Thanks, no problem. If I just deleted the unit .lua files which refer to the artillery would the game and AI still work? This way I could keep the Buhbledow and Noah building in the game.
Would it be possible in a future version to have greater choice in the exclusions, like in TA where you could choose the individual units or buildings you don't want included?
Is it me of is the AI a little different? I built a Rex and it seemed more effective than they used to be with it's fire and the AI seemed to build the FA stuff much sooner. Just wondering if things have been tweaked a bit or if it is just my imagination? Thanks
There is no way I was trying to make fun of it, my genuine initial impression was that the XP literally dropped out of the teleporter. I freely admit I was wrong but I was just describing what I thought I saw and was certainly not trying to mock it. Upsetting the creators was also not my intention as that just sabotages my own cause. In any case, if that is how my message was perceived then I am sorry, perhaps I could have chosen my words more carefully as I do appreciate you guys put in a lot of hours. Thanks.
My apologies, I did not notice the teleport effect but on taking a second look you are of course correct. However, I do feel your attempt at mockery was not really necessary. My other points are still valid though as I am hardly the only one to express that the current teleporting mechanism does not feel as good as the original gantry entry. They are merely suggestions though, no need to get personal.
I prefer gantries but if the pillars win out I would like to suggest:
1)Get rid of the blue vortex thing which appears when constructing a unit. It obscures the top of the tower (which looks good with the logo) and also looks odd if you change the camera angle as it sits so high in the air...if you drop a vehicle from that height you would smash it.
2)As an alternative could you make the tower "draw in" the experimental just like the original fat boy is currently drawn in in the current Revamp version. This way you still get the feeling of anticipation/excitement as you see it nearly completed and it looks cool as well. This way the half-baked construction function would also work well/still make sense. The only way an opponent could stop construction would be to destroy the tower (just like with gantries).
Something just dropping from the sky just doesn't feel right and looses its epicness.
I like it a lot, a definite improvement. You guys seemed to have really stepped up to a new level recently.
I am also curious about this, I don't mind as I'm a Cybran man but my brothers play UEF so they might get jealous :) With so many XP will normal units become completely useless or will the upgrades always keep them relevant? Cheers. Oh, and great looking model btw :) The upward pointing guns are AA?
Looking at your work above - cool and still very Cybran - and those alternative models (though I do prefer the big barrel laser to the stubbier ones for the ML) I think you have won me over :) I look forward to seeing your future take on the SC universe.
I can't argue with that side on picture, it looks a bit toy like and not really attached. I think it is quite iconic now though so a bit late to change, especially with lots of other things still waiting to be done on the mod. I forget what the SC1 version looked like for comparison.
What is there not to like about it? Big, powerful and sends fear in to the hearts of the enemy :) Cybran stuff is often clearly based on bugs of one type or another but they don't actually look like bugs themselves, and I think that is a good thing. Hopefully that does not change with the new units.
Thanks for clearing that up for me, colour me a little embarrassed :)
Why do you want to replace the Monkey Lord with the experimental Assault Bot? The monkey lord fits the game very well and is one of the most popular units. Some people complain it is too strong but that can be edited easily enough. Besides, it needs to be strong as the Cybran don't have any long range attack combo's like the other two races so needs things which can just charge the enemy base head on and make some headway.
Sorry if I have got the wrong end of the stick on this one but I don't want to see the unit go.
