After the failed partial terraforming of mars. The mars based government retreated back to earth leaving the mars colonies in ruin.
A quick collapse of the various colonial settlements left only the remaining martian military to clean up the mess. Large earth based mining
conglomerates quickly moved in to fill the security void with contracted armies intent on protecting mineral and metal extraction operations
with little regard for the remaining colonist.

Toshida corps, the largest of these companies, now controls nearly all of the mining operations on mars. Toshida corps lets the martian miltiary maintain
complete control in the prime colonies in exchange. A mutual understanding of non agression has become norm between the Military and the corporate armies.
All has been peaceful for nearly 10 years on mars.

Yet, another faction exists on mars. It seems some of the engineers who worked on the original terraforming operations have gone into hiding in the fringe
areas of colonized mars. This group is popularly known as "The Masons" after a earth based organization of the same name.

Sightings of these rogue engineers has become more frequent in the past several months. Some of Toshida corp's outlying mining stations have come under attack
by small raiding parties. these attacks have been limited but increasing in frequency. They seem to be mainly after supplies and retreat quickly without doing much
damage to the operations themselves.

Still, shareholders on earth are worried. Toshida corps has decided to make a limited offensive in an effort to discourage further attacks.

The martian Military has been strangely quiet regarding the incidents and has declined comment on official martian news nets..

this is where we find ourself.

Offworld Mod for battlefield 2.



Milestones:

1. 2 ships in game on a test map (4-6 weeks)
2. 1 ship for each faction and 2 finished maps (2-3 months)
3. 2ships for each faction, Menu graphics, 3 finished maps (4-5months)
4. 3ships for each faction, 6 maps (final stage)(6-8months)

Gameplay objectives: Single player craft based combat. fast short rounds. Intense combat
vehicles will be light/medium armed. Team work will be heavily focused on when balancing the gameplay

This will be a very light project asset wise. No player models, no hand held weapons
Only 9 vehicles planned and statics will be minimal. basically terrain based combat with large scale statics used as fighting locations.

all combat will be in small singleman combact craft known as "flitters". They will be hybrid hover/flight vehicles using nearly conventional weapons. Flight dynamics have already been created. This template will be applied to each vehicle and tweaked according to the indivdual models characteristic.

Long term considering moving the project to another engine at a later stage if its a good concept

Quick Hello

News 3 comments

Hey. Just a quick hello to everyone.

In the next 2 weeks or so I want to get all of our content up here and start producing some high quality images for your viewing pleasure.

Here is a quick and dirty feature list.

Features wrote:

- 8 vs 8 vehicle based team combat: Player used customized "flitters" to form teams of salvagers fighting others teams both inside and outside the ruined remians of the martian landscape.

- Customized vehicle loadouts and a variety of vehicle classes and designs give players the ability to customize their armies. Earn salvage credits, gain weapons, custom ammo and systems upgrades.

- "Offworld" spawning system will eliminate spawn camping and create a more balanced and fluid spawn dynamic

- Large martian terrains with as much sub surface play areas as above the ground. tactics will shift to fit environments and teamwork will be the primary avenue of success.

- Interactive features of the environment will allow players to dock their "flitters" to additional structures and gain control of thing like manned flak turrets, security systems, cranes / conveyer belts, slavage rigs, repair rigs and possibly more!


And in a blast from the past I dug up some old images and videos of the first Offworld: Fall of Mars from the bf2 engine.

ENJOY!

Our 2 manned Tempest Flitter with rocket pods. MGs and second player gattling cannon.. never was too accurate in bf2 engine..but tons of fun!

One of our original levels. Based on a large extinct volcanoe crater. I'll be recreating some of these envirnments for the new project.

Ioina Chaos; a very choatic shattered landscape. was great fun for hiding and divebombing ussuspecting ground vehicles.

Thanks for your time guys. Keep in touch!

I loved my experience. Would need more servers though. Anybody can open up a dedicated server and leave it on 24/7. He would get so much feedback!

I downloaded the demo but I can't play it, is it Internet only or can you play it in a local match?

you can play in a local server but the bot support is not present in the beta. So you can only basically play around in the ships.

the July release "should" have single player support. at least thats what we are aiming for...

I tried playing a local match, but the mod crashes to the desktop when I hit the "MULTIPLAYER" button. What am I doing wrong.

Based on helicopters but with much freer physics. Move forward very fast and can hover and turn in place.

More like a vtol hovercraft...

Will be releasing in 2 weeks, try them then..

still debating TBH...could go both ways...although i like the idea of having pilots be able to bail out and be picked up by a buddy and brought back to base..

hehe..
