Angels Fall First: Planetstorm is an objective-based assault game fought both in space and on the ground. Featuring totally original art and completely new game types, we take you from flying gigantic capital ships, piloting fighters, and manning turrets to the traditional vehicular and infantry combat, both planet-side and inside the starships themselves. At your command are more than two dozen ships and vehicles, including all original weaponry, 3 maps with full bot support, two custom characters, with more on the way. This is a <b>total</b> conversion mod in the fullest sense of the word. Welcome to Planetstorm.

The Angels Fall First Universe

Welcome to the Angels Fall First Universe Wiki, an extensive reference of our vast universe, currently hosted in the site of one of our projects, AFF: The Second Antarean War.

Rearguard by Strangelet

AFF began as a loosely affiliated collection of short stories set in an original sci-fi universe and has since branched out to encompass several projects including the predecessors of our current projects: a Homeworld2/Nexus total conversion, an Unreal Tournament 2007 conversion, and an original space shooter - Iron Angels. Current projects are the AFF: The Second Antarean War and this mod, AFF: Planetstorm for Unreal Tournament 3. Featuring new units, weapons, and a brand-new, totally original universe, the AFF Project hopes to redefine strategic game play.

The Database, available to you here, has been converted so that ''you'' can assess it without the need for a Second-Spine neural link. Here within lies, a multitude of files, informational briefings, entries, explanations, and other intelligence documents from the Angels Fall First Universe.

For quick browsing, here are provided links to choice entries:

The original collection of short stories that started it all:

  1. Right Where I Am by Phifty
  2. Uncommon Crossings by Alex
  3. Taking Back Lukather Prime by Stranj
  4. Dragon's Nest by Stranj
  5. Knowledge is Power by Phifty
  6. Marine's Last Redoubt by Alex
  7. Spartha Fields by Daemoria
  8. AngelFall by Stranj
  9. The Noise by Phifty
  10. The Unexpected Win by Ryan
  11. Almighty Dollar by Stranj
  12. Dies Irae by Stranj

And some quick links to guide you through our database:

  1. AFF Main Site
  2. History of the Universe
  3. Ship Directory
  4. Fleet Weapons Directory
  5. Infantry Unit Directory
  6. Infantry Weapons Directory
  7. Ground Vehicle Directory
  8. Abbreviation Glossary
  9. The Universe Map (Warning: large image file)

No more wondering what AISN means, or where the Starkingdom of Mournecreek is.

Welcome to our universe.

Oh god thats incredible. Please tell me you can fly those ships in the first screenshot! Those huge ships are awesome. Also awesome drop ships would be sweet. This totally reminds me of my Planetside days, in a good way!

The Cicadas (those are the dropships, and no they were named long before the UT3 Cicadas were named heh) are playable, but will probably be relegated to an automated 'spawning' role for the ground maps.

On the other hand, the escort Locust gunships and the buggies are fully playable. :)

Well, this looks ten times more original and interesting than Unreal Tournament 3. Been waiting on a media update from you guys and I must say: very wise you waited with it. This way you could really make it impressive and show something representative. Nice work!

Not really.

Looks cool, although i dunno the storyline ... you should keep that in mind if you guys are developing an SP ... not everyone will know whats going on if you use the terminology and names from the series without proper introduction :| ...

Indeed. We're probably going to incorporate a few introductions into the game. But the UT3 mod gameplay itself is pretty much intuitive and doesn't need you to know much of the background history, if at all. :)

this is awesome, the only reason why I would buy UT3. Did you guys ever finish the Homeworld2 and Nexus total conversions?

The HW2 conversion released a v0.8:

Further development seems unlikely as the interest has already flagged down for hw2 mods. :(

The Nexus mod didn't get much headway after the bankruptcy of its publisher Mithis Entertainment and the repossession of the game engine BlackSun by the Hungarian government. We tried to get them to release it to the public and us modders, but no luck even finding a way to contact them. :(
