hi everybody and welcome to Earth at war. This mod this mod is based of a massive war between the intergalactic empire, the Earth alliance and the Black hole pirates. The music is already done right now and we're now doing the modelling and the coding, however, we still need a rigger and a skinner and an additional modeller or coder would be welcome too.
Since a new month has started I shall post another progress update. :P

During my absence I thought of a few ideas for the mod. The first one is a full redone weapon system:
In the demo I coded the weapons to fire 100 blasts in a volley, reload 5 seconds, fire another volley, etc. In future versions I will balance it more ressembling the actual arms of a unit. i.e. If a units posseses 50 Turbolasers batteries and they're capable to fire 3 pulses in a volley that makes 150 blasts. Thats means that we'll do 3 hardpoints firing 50, 15 firing 10, 50 firing 3, etc, ect. Also, shields will be MUCH harder to take down. They can asorb a lot of damage but regenerate slowly, Ion canons are now, as they're supposed to be, the ultimate way to knock down the enemy shields. We'll also make more realistic weapon to shield particles. In phase 1 the Earth Alliance has the advantage of boasting shield penetrating weapons.
Another idea is having stations buildable from build satalites (in skirmish) Those will be:
I've also looked around on the Internet for good looking planet looks, I found them from the following sites:
Well, this was the update for April.
