Invasion is a total conversion for the tactical strategy game Nexus the Jupiter incident. The story is pretty simple for now but i'm expanding it to give a solid background for the mod in the late 18th century a scout alien spaceship crash landed on earth the crew died in the impact but human scientists begun to study the wreck and their discoveries brought humanity to space exploration in the first half of the 20th century but in this peroid the alien fleet arrives into the solar system to claim earth as part of their empire I am a total noob in modding things so feel free to make constructive criticism about my work

Hi, this is the first update for the mod, i've just completed the first version of the background storyline, probably i will change something during
the development of the mod but i think that this could be a good starting point.

In 1897 an alien scout ship crash lands in Noerthumberland, Great Britain, the crew was killed in the incident and the ship took critical demage to the FTL
drive and to other major systems but english scientists begun to study the wreck, especially the rocket engines and the sensor system, the only things they were able to understand to a reasonable level.

They made important discoveries building new kinds of rockets and when in 1914 the First World War broke out the English Army found a... suitable use for this kind of devices. The Triple Alliance forces were unprepared to face this kind of weapons and when England gave this type of technology to her allies they faced the impossibility of continuing a war with such a technological disadvantage and they signed a cease-fire in the first months 1916.

The Great War ended and the Austro-German coalition obtained the ''blueprints'' of the alien ship in exchange of the promise of never starting an another world war.

In 1917 the Soviet Revolution changed the face of Russian Empire and in this year Robert Goddard, an American rocket scientist tired of being considered nothing more than a visionary arrived in England where he started working on a secret project about space exploration,
he developed a new generation of big rocket engines and he saw his dreams come true when in 1926 the first English rocket, the X-1, escaped from the Earth's orbit.Soon other nations began to develop their own engines and systems with different results.

In 1934 the United States developed a new kind of electronic calculator the ENIAC Mk 3, in Italy and Russia Guglielmo Marconi and Nikola Tesla
created their first working RADAR prototypes.

And so in 1936 the HMS Intrepid was the first standard ship to be reconverted from sea to space travel and soon ater in 1937
France launched the firdt components of an anothe technological marvel, a space station called ''Le Petit Sol''.

In 1938 Russians and Americans made their way through space and soon after in 1941 the first Italian spaceship left earth's orbit.

The Germans recovered their disadvantage thanks to the work of Wherner von Braun and in 1943 launched their first ship the
GES - Kaiser Wilhelm.1947 with the completation of the french space station the Earth's nations begun the contruction of a lunar minerary colony and expanded their fleets but the 1st February of 1949...

This really looks interesting. I was playing something like this through Nexus Skirmisher with naming the ships after British and German capital ships from WW I. I hope you will continue with your mod and maybe have an alpha or beta for release soon.

Hi, guys.
Along with some complements of the human fleets and the Savoia battleship ingame shot i'm bringing to you the first alien ships, I think i'll release a pre beta when i'll bring something of them ingame, but i'm afraid it will take a considerable amount of time...

I guys, finally I've got something more to show you, some ingame ''turreted'' models, fighters and so on...
Like always if you have suggestions, hints or something else make me know... No alien ships for now but the concepts are ready and so I've only to start modelling them... when I find the courage.
