Gametypes is an overhaul of the balancing of Scorpion's mod started roughly back in 2006 or 2007. Its aim is to provide a more durable feel to the ships and realistic handling of gameplay features.

A close friend of mine started this nearly half a decade back named AgentExeider. After he stopped working on it I began to tinker with the database files. Eventually resulting in the modification you see here.

Please do note that I have not tested this modification on Allgrey's copy of Conquest, and do not know if it is even compatible. Although I would be overjoyed to hear if it is.

cool im glad that you released a mod into this game. im pretty sure that there are alot of CFW fans out there but this game never really became popular enough to become a mainstream game like Sins of a Solar Empire or other RTS games. do you know about our forums? its the largest gathering of CFW fans.
