A mod for "Star Wars: Empire At War - Forces Of Corruption" that seeks to change some fundamental aspects of how the game is played and introduces an alternate timeline to the Star Wars universe - all while attempting to retain the essence of the game loved by so many.

Not to be rude but that's pretty lazy to just use another game's model as your "Weapons platform"

A perfectly legitimate gripe; I'm surprised that no one voiced it earlier.

Two things I'd like to mention though:
1) If I had not ported this model into 3ds max, I would have just modelled it myself - The texture would not have been of the same quality, but the model would have been essentially the same.

2) The porting of models is not without precedent; I've seen plenty of models ported from Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds to EAW and vice-versa, and car models are often ported from the Codemasters F1 games to better racing sims such as rFactor and Geoff Crammond's GP4.

As I said above, your point is a good one, and I'm sorry that instead of saying so, someone has gone and down-voted your post.

If you have any further questions or wish to continue this discussion further, feel free to PM me.

Cheers,
AUS_Doug

Well now I take it all back. You explained it very well and I guess I can't even be mad or anything. Good Luck with this mod.

Thank you!
But there is no need to take anything back; You simply voiced a legitimate concern without resorting to accusations of thievery.

Cheers,

Description

Here we have some shots of a WIP, the Orbital Weapons Platforms.
Until now they were just beefed up Level 1 Space Stations.
The observant among you will notice that they are the TEC Starbases from SOASE.
Forums.elementalgame.com is the link to the page with the tool needed to do that.
And thanks to Warb_Null, who pointed out what should have been obvious, thereby saving me jours of work.

In the second screenshot - Top View - the Red rings are where I will be mounting Turbolaser turrets. (On the underside of those corners)
And the Yellow rings are where I will be mounting Anti-Fighter cannons.
(And they WILL be rotating turrets)
