Unlimited_X MOD(Or UXMOD, for short) is a modification of Homeworld 2. The moder, Unit_X who comes from China is working on it. Of course there is no mod team - Unit_X will do every role, from modeling to scripting and drawing , etc. As there's only one moder(and I'm just a senior 1 student busy studing at school), it may update a bit slowly.UXMOD is trying to create a new world in HW2 - there will be new races, new storyline and a brand new campaign as well as new game modes. Maybe it's a kind of "imagination" of myself.. :)
Now I'm working on UXMOD Version 0.45.
In this version, there will be about 15 new models, 5 new singleplayer levels as well as more than 5 new maps(maybe more or less), 3 new game modes and lot's of new FXs.Now most of the models and FXs are completed.
5 New Maps are done for now.
Level 2 testing completed. Now working on Level 3.
*As this mod is made for Chinese people at first, I'll spend some time doing the localization works.*I know it's the very beginning of UXMOD and I hope it will be a good mod.
---More Info, Coming soon---
Well, it has been long since I posted news here last time. In these days, MANY early plans are delayed or changed but I AM STILL WORKING ON THIS MOD. I'm going to explain some issues about UXMOD's development these days:
1- What have you been doing these days?
-Well, I don't know whether you guys know something about Chinese education(especially the period of senior high , Age 16-18). I've been working on studies and exams this term. However, the coming year(senior 3, 高三 in Chinese) will be really tough since we're going to take unlimited exams and prepare for the final examination in order to get into a good university. That's why I use "STALL" on the mod development: To be honest, there'll be less and less time for me to spend on UXMOD from now on.
2- What about the V0.45 release? What have you done till now?
-Actually, I've finished the campaign [3 small intro campaigns and 1 special level of NIS(In-game render scene telling the main story)]. Most new units are finished but there're still many things to do:
-Animations between each level
-Mod Database & Historical Briefing
These are the main concerns now. Each of them requires much time and I'm not sure when I can get all these done. But these things are the MINIMUM requirements for the first release, sorry for that.. I do want to get a good(at least "playable") start here.
3- Then what's your plan now?
-In June, I'll still prepare for the final examinaton this term. After that, during the summer vacation, I'll try to finish V0.45 and if possible there will be a release in August. I'm still not sure since that summer vacation will be extremely busy & important for the coming senior 3... Anyway, I'll try.
So in all, this news is to show that UXMOD is NOT DEAD but the future is still hard and tough. Just mark my words here: I'll NEVER leave Unlimited_X MOD here DEAD and after I've entered university, I'm sure that mod development will be really on track.
That's all I want to explain here, and just reply if you have anything unclear.
Thanks, -UX,2012 06 12
