I like to announce 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. (see end of summary)
Ingame and Trails ready.
The Industrials can be called in like all other non capital ships from Gates or special Ships - like Carriers.
Then you can oder them to harvest like conventional HW2 Collectors.
They may "harvest" in your Sector or move to a nearby one.
The Sector they try to harvest in should be under military control, to defend against raids.
I wrote "harvest" because technically they are still collectors, but they will visit platforms or mining bases (wich are technically still asteroids - simply not rotating and with another mesh) located on the map.
