The version of EON you currently see here on ModDB is old. None of this stuff exists anymore, and the Mod has been completely re-envisioned. A full update with all new content is being planned and will be here in a few short weeks.

Yes, the mod was not in production for a few years. It is being rekindled and will be worked on for at least 4 years, as it will be produced alongside classwork for a college degree.

The reboot of this mod will also be steered by the results of an inquiry made to SquareSoft regarding permissions for non-commercial mods of their titles.

Cya in a few weeks!

ModDB launch!

News

I'm pleased to announce the official launch of "Eon" We have been at work for weeks now in a pre-recruitment phase. During this time, we have completed the basis of the mod from multiple standpoints. The story functions well and is ready to produce content for. We have a viable design document, and a specific task list document for developers to 'check off' on as they select a task from the list. Progress is getting heavy in programming. Props and materials have been produced. The menu system is coming together with a cohesive and attractive theme.

Level design at this point is primarily limited to test maps and scenario backdrops to test the proof of concept for programming. Several new, custom entities have already been produced and integrated into the mod's .fgd file. In the hands of level designers now are concepts such as random encounter generation, dynamic character switching, and pre/post battle scene timing.

More working features will be posted in the features section.

We are currently recruiting for:
*Level Design (mappers)
*Model Design (any level of ability helpful)
*Concept Artist (give the 3d artists something to work off of!)
*Materials (help speed things up for the 3d guys)
*Sound Design - We have a few guys doing some music, so you could collaborate, or just do your own thing, but we're wanting a soundtrack of several dozen themes for characters/places etc...

Join the team by posting on our website's forums ('welcome mat' or 'show and tell')

New members will be given access to the developer forum on our website. From there you'll have your hands full reading the posts, which comprise a robust documentation. Inside you'll find the full (developer's/SPOILER) story, the design document, the task list, documentation on completed concepts, and a mapper's reference for using the mod's custom entities. If you then decide to stay on, FTP information will be provided, and you can choose your first task off the task list.

With the amount of coding this will take, I'd say that you'd be better off doing it as an indie game? o.o

Using HL2 isn't a bad move at all, but I think you could do this just as well on an engine like UDK or Irrlicht - maybe even unity? - It's just because it seems like HL2 would take so editing in this case, that it almost wouldn't be worth it ..

Anyhow, good luck with the project and try to keep it well organized =]

Thanks! I'm actually enjoying the extensive hours of coding time. It's been a great way to improve the old skills :)

So this mod is based on an old game?

No, it is completely original. At first, it was going to be a prequel to Final Fantasy 6, but now it is not.
