EVE: RTS (work name)
==============================================================================

It's a mod about EVE Online developed by myself,
featuring ships and other objects directly from the original Game.
Models and Textures were extracted using TriExporter.

==============================================================================
CCP confirmed that I can use their Artwork.
==============================================================================

Quote from CCP's message:
2011.10.05 18:54:00 CCP Wrangler
(wich should allow me to use their stuff for the mod.)

"As long as you don't charge for the mod or otherwise make any profit,
and as long as you give us (CCP) credit for the artwork and such,
there shouldn't be any problems with this mod."

==============================================================================
Alpha 2.1 Fixes are: ( Download: Gamefront.com )
==============================================================================

- Changes from Hotfix already build in
- Old Wreckage system returned
- Maximum amount of Wreckages chooseable in skirmish options.
- All bigger then Frigate has a Wreckage
- Wreckages stay 20 Minutes. If there are more then the set number of Wreckages, they disappear after 1 Minute.
- Industrials have only effect Wreckage, so they don't block dockpoints if killed
- Some additional fixes on maps
- skirmish option to disable sector income to play only with Industrials (Deathmatch style)

==============================================================================
Alpha 2 Features are:
==============================================================================

- Ships and other models from the Eve Online Universe

Ok, thank you for all your feedback and ideas.
I think we have a pretty good combination of gameplay elements now and the mod is on a good way.

Status at the moment:
- We can not have a construction effect so
- All ships are called in as Reinforcement
- They can be called from Gates and some other ships (no easy to get)
- Sector buildslots can "build" Gates, Defenses or other functional stations
- Sectors are some sort of small map on their own - but on your real map
- Industrials "harvest" at platforms and later unload at industrial dropoff stations or Frighters
- Owning a Sector will grant access to the objects connected to it
- Owning this Objects may also generate Income
- You travel at least 10 times faster if not in a Sector
- You can only call in Reinforcements inside a sector
- You can only fight inside a Sector
- You only can see enemy players Stuff inside a sector if one of your ships is inside

For Mappers:
- You should be able to easily add new maps to the mod. Even if you are new to scripting.
- If you know how spherical coodrinates work you should be able to create whatever you like to see with the given Objects.


Planed Ideas:
Introduce passive research - The idea:
- You build a research Station in a Sector wich will grant you "research points"
- There may be different types of research stations - like Weapon, Armour, Regeneration, ....
- Regarding to the type of station you will unlock research over time
- Research would increase an attribute with +5% (like eve leveling for most ships)
- Research could also unluck ships chassis over time

Salvageable "artifacts"
- Ancient race objects on the map wich may be salvaged to get additional research unlocks


There are also a few other ideas regarding gamemodes,
but before thinking about another gamemode i should finish this one and get it online.

As always I'm still open to new Ideas, critics . . . wahtever.

Best Regards
Mr.Thi

P.S. Should I try to set up a forum here?

Hey, ive been thinking for homeworld remastered, since gearbox have suposedly removed alot of old modding restrictions is that all of the modders/mods for homeworld should make a 'multiverse' or 'super mod' which has all the factions/units from all/most mods

If I can manage to work on them ^^ ...

I'm currently trying to streamline ship and race integration as well als Buildtree and Build restrictions. I totally altered a lot of stuff with the new Gamemode. Scripting wise it allows a lot more races now. This should be pretty similar to the HW: Universe race management conceptwise.

before we will have Eve ships back, I will finish the Prototype with Hiigaran and Vaygr Fleets. Next Step, may add 1-4 Factions from Nexus: The Jupiter incident and the EVE Race ships with the ships you saw on early screenshots.

I would not expect all this done soon, but when gamemode is fully polished, all things may speed up a lot.
