The development teams left much to be desired... but no more! Featuring new units, 12-fighter squadrons, realistic speeds of projectiles, updated and more-canon build tree, and changed hardpoints. Also, cut content such as planets and some units will be added.

We have several options available (in the 1.0) for galactic conquest mode

Posted by on

Given that the amount of ne wunits surely will not fit on the tactical units list in Galactic Conquest, we have several ways we can code the units to only appear in their tech levels.
First way: write events so that old units are switched with new ones (much like Z95s are replaced by XWings)
Second way: Tech Levels make more space buildings available, which are used to build newer units (instead of building units directly from the space station)
Third way: for every faction, make certain units only available on certain worlds (so you get a mix of techs all the time, but different units buildable on different planets)

As an example:
First: Venators replaced with Acclamators, replace by Victories, replaced by ISD's
Second: Tech 1: Basic Fighter factory (V-Wing, ARC-170) Tech 2: Fighter Factory (TIE Bomber, TIE FIghter) etc.
Third: Hypori: Venators, IPV-1, V-wings Courkrus: Tartan Cruisers, Acclamators, TIE Interceptors (etc)

Basically, I am asking the community which method they would prefer us to code. If you still have questions, I could write a full diagram of each one for you (just give me a bit)

As this is for GC, then I think the third option is the most effective way.

Also, I think Venators should come after Acclamators. Just my opinion, but it is timeline fitting.

we stacked units mostly according to firepower and strength as opposed to timeline 'canonocity', but we'll take that into account.

i agree third option
and im sure Venator is more powerful than the aclamtor, came later, and stayed for more time in use

I would have to vote for the 3rd way.

The Venator-class was born from the success of the Acclamator-class assault ship and was designed by Lira Blissex for the purpose of serving as a medium-sized, versatile multi-role warship.
The Venator is far more powerful then the Acclamator I or II.

- However the Venators where to be cast out as obsolete, Whereas the Acclamator would serve the empire up to the Vong War, and 2nd Civil war.

Acclamator and Venator issues aside, it seems like the third way is holding dominance so far

Ya really, I have seen this option done in others mods before, and works.

Actually this works out well, As you can have the Acclamtor I. But replace it with the upgrade 2nd version, witch was designed as a planetary bombardment ship. - thos giving the player a reason to buy a lesser powerful ship, as to use it's ability to say.. Ad faster recharge to bombardment, or a 2nd or 3rd option in that field.

so: backwater worlds: tech 1&2
developed worlds: tech 3
civilized worlds: tech 4
advanced/hub worlds: tech 5

Ah yes, Very nice. I think that system will work very well. -
I think you should also take it to the next level and ad in many structures that are dependent on the would type. - Like Trade outpost, Civilian Station, Mining Hub.. Ect.. As to prompt attacking base on strategy, not just what would is easier to grab.

yeah Darth, that sounds like a good mix. It works pretty good in Nomada's new alliance 2.3 lite.

Now, he also has a nice feature whereby a 'fleet commander' can summon reinforcements dependant on what kind of ship the commander is in.

I can agree with ur worlds view :P

At first I thought that a combination of options 2 and 3 might
be good, but #3 really seems to be the best choice.

I appreciate the input...
and Ive already coded the units for option 3.
took a few hours... but its set.
the summon reinforcements sounds cool... but with pop caps at 40, it might be moot.
And I was actually thinking about an aspect like special structures...
Listening post (spy on neighboring systems) Trade hub (more income) Inquisitorium (Empire) (build Inquisitors- I.e. Dark Side adepts)
Recruitment Center (from Mix of Consortiums) -Rebels hire indgines
Slave pit (Consrtium, Hutts, Pirates) enslave indigines
Conscription Office: Empire forces indigines into service
Racketeering office: Consortium's criminal hub
(Note- I have already secured code for the buildings from Mix of Consortiums)
Impound lot (allows Empire to build exclusive units)
etc. etc..

Very nice, This will give it a much needed focus on strategy that the game lacks.
I'd be glad to help with building concepts, or that such.
