About:


This mod wants to keep the original FoC experience, just with improved graphics, while adding a few units to keep it interesting.

This means new models and textures for almost all units. It also ramps up the difficulty so that the game remains challenging even after you've learned how to play it. All changes will only apply to space, ground is uneffected, as I'm not a big fan of ground combat.

What I'd like to do in the mod is make the higher tier units more dangerous, so that when you see a Star Destroyer it will be a larger threat than in the vanilla game. I do this not by giving the ship higher shield points, or add more hardpoints, but by making the hardpoints untargetable. This will ensure the ship is a threat right up untill it blows up, thus making larger ships with more health more dangerous for a longer time. Higher tier ships will also cost more.

The mod will also add one additional tier of battleship above the normal Star Destroyer, Mon Calamari Cruiser and Keldabe Battleship, though seeing one of these will be a special occasion and plenty of reason for panic.

This is my little love project, besides my main mod, Old Republic at War ( Moddb.com ) Sometimes I get a little sick of all the Old Republic era stuff and want to do something closer to the original game, in a different time line.

Constructive critisism is appreciated and taken into consideration, and occasionally I'll make a poll about something to get different opinions on the subject, though the final decision remains mine. No unit requests.I reserve the right to write back an angry response or flat out ignore you.

This is my interpertation of an updated FoC, I like to think I have high quality standards and I always try to improve the mod in all ways, graphical, gameplay related or otherwise.

I hope you enjoy your stay here and that you're as excited for the mod as I am!

Not a bad idea actually. I'll think about it.

I figure you can just copy paste the starbase repair code into the ship itself and its hardpoints, haven't tried it yet though.

Gero, perhaps on the theme of repairs is pulling back a ship to a special satellite constructed facility that can repair not just destroyed parts, but perhaps the entire ship? This gives the feel of a more active combat front where critically damaged ships aren't used to attract fire and are pulled back to be repaired and sent back to the front, provided they escaped the melee

Repairing destroyed hardpoints isn't possible as far as I know, and if it is it'll require a large amount of scripting, which I'm not willing to spent the time to write. A repair satellite isn't a bad idea though, that would be for repairing damaged hardpoints.

Actually, it is in fact possible from the nilla version on space stations. those hard points show up in grey, telling you that you can bring them back if you pay to rebuild them. After they siphon some cash away, the hard point comes back fully rebuilt, however, that only applied to a few hardpoints. On the subject of space stations, they need to be absolutely powerful fortresses rather then a bomber happy player's rush target. it's no fair to watch 5 bombers somehow kill a space station in 5 runs if you go the route of targetable points for a space station (Please don't)

Nope, because those higher tier starbases are completely different objects from the lower tier starbases, and the ship remains 1 object.
