This is a rebuild of the old SFAW mod that was removed last year. I plan on starting this over from scratch, so it will take a long time to get up and running. Current Planned factions are Stargate and Star Wars

A quick description of the new version of SFAW thats been born today...

Posted by Spinobreaker on Jun 24th, 2012

Hey This is the first news for the SFAW page. Basically the old SFAW is still dead, i want you to understand that. This is the NEW SFAW. Im starting over from scratch, in order to try and weed out the bugs and what not. So the first version of SFAW 2.0 will have only 3 factions. So far they are Stargate and Star Wars and an unknown to be decided on faction.

Also with this version of SFAW im adding my new and improved skirmish starbase system (currently in the Stargate Reality mod). This means there will be a Starbase, a Heavy Shipyard and a Research Station. If i can get it to work properly, itll be setup so that when one goes boom, it will act like the ground stations, meaning theyll be rebuildable. But if u loose ur research station its back to square one of your tech tree. With these three stations i MIGHT be able to expand the factions fleets beyond there current limit of 3 fighters, 2 bombers, 12 ships and 7 heroes.

There is another reason for the reboot though. And it is, when i started SFAW i had no story to go with it. It was just a mash up for the hell of it. Since then its evolved to a point of having a story. So i will be implementing that from the word go. And that will take a long time (it wont be in the first release but it will be near the start). Also im looking for coders and modelers to help me out. Coders to help me do the ship balancing coding, and modelers to help me make a few new orbital stations.

Ok part 2 of the news is a choice for you guys to vote on the new stargate starbases system. Stargate needs a Light defense satellite, a heavy defense satellite, a ability based satellite, a Heavy Shipyard a Starbase and a Research Station...

2 - Replicator Starbase
3 - Wraith Starbase

9 - Asgard Starbase
10 - Gaould Heavy Canon

First of all Spino i'm very glad you started SFAW again, i was really sad when admins had to delete the mod because of that BSG ********.

Second, i would suggest you focus on 2 factions first, in this case Stargate and Starwars.

Do all the units, coding and whatever it's needed until those 2 factions are 100% complete. When it's done start adding 3rd faction, and so on. That way there will be almost no bugs and i bet it's easier and faster to work on 2 things at the same time instead of 5-6.

Anyway i wish you good luck, i'm really looking forward to play this epic mod again.

Edit: I suggest Star Trek as a 3rd faction but what i would really like is Imperium from Warhammer 40k Universe :P.

I was thinking of doing halo as faction 3 and avoiding Trek for now, since the phasers are a pain in the *** to get right lol
