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!
There has been a slight issue with permissions, and therefor all nebulae, starfield textures and planet textures will be replaced by new ones, all old ones removed complete untill a replacement has been made. This is effective inmedietly.
Further more, the ORAW download has been removed, as it contained the starfields, nebulae and textures, so if you're wondering where the download went, there you have it. And updated version will be uploaded in time.
In EAW: RE, the Blue Diver is also removed and will be replaced by another ship, as it had small edits on it made by the person who retracted permission.
