2012 Update

3 years ago News 9 comments

Quick Update. I haven't worked on this for probably at least a year but I have started a little bit of work recently.

First, as I'm sure this will disappoint a whole lot of people, the ground side is dead. I can't get the kind of help I need in that area. This includes modeling and animating ground units such as infantry and bugs. I can model of course, but it's just a hobby and I have no experience in that area. I'm really not willing to spend the time needed to learn by trial and error.

Second, I'm working on some of the new ships as seen in the up-coming Japanese CGI Starship Trooper show. I haven't decided whether to retire some of the current ships or just add to the current selection. I'm also going to be re-modeling some aspects of the current ships. Nothing drastic though.

Third, as with the Federal ships, the Arachnid ships will be re-visited. Mainly texture wise but I will also be adding units to the current Arachnid fleet for a more 1:1 balance against the Federals.

Forth, the Tophit/Skinnies will get a few ships added to the Arachnid fleet.

Fifth, the next release will include all of the above as well as Galactic Conquest but only if I can get the GC to work as space only.

Now, I'd like to thank all of my mod's trackers. I really appreciate that. It helps to know that while the SST universe doesn't get the same attention from the masses as some other genres, it does have it's devoted fans. I know a good proportion of you are wanting a ground side, and it's loss might be the final straw but I can't keep saying it's being worked on when it's not. It's not fair to you.

Finally, I need some input on a few things.

1: On the Federal ships I used a mesh to simulate an exhaust plume. Someone posted I was lazy for doing that but it actually was more work than just using the normal effect. I did this because of issues with how the round effects looked on the predominately square engines. I'm willing to re-visit it to see if I can use the round effects if this is the preferred look.

2: There's still a weird bug where when a Hero ship arrives, an explosion will occur on another ship. It only seems to happen with the arrival of Heroes. Anyone have any ideas? Does it happen on all maps?

3: I've seen posts of people having issues with launching the mod. The mod works. It works on 64bit Win 7 and 32bit Win XP systems. However, it was created using a store bought retail version of FoC. I'd like to hear if any people have been able to play this mod or any other FoC mod with the Steam or any other downloadable version. I'd like to figure out what the fix is for it. I know Steam uses a different download directory, which might be an issue.

That's it for now.

If I did follow through with that idea, it would depend on who would join up to help out and how much experience they had. C&C TS all the way to Generals I've modded extensively and could do it by myself but I would not do TW alone. I've added units to TW but personally I find it overly complicated to mod. It also would be a side mod to this one, so I'd need a co-leader to help ramrod the team. If no experienced modders help out, then the idea will wait until this one is finished.

Hi Rebelmoon, I really like your Starship Troopers mod. So far I haven't seen any other mods who are still working on the Starship troopers theme. I hope it gets more out there.

Also, have you had any thoughts on getting this mod to a Command & Conquer game? If you ever want to go C&C, let me know. I'm a writer for . I could help spread the word and maybe help you with a team.

I've toyed with that idea from time to time. I've modded most of the C&C games from the original to TW. I actually prefer C&C for land battles. Most of my current land/air models are way too high poly for those games though.

Unfortunately I have had zero interest of restarting work on this any time soon. I just have too much other stuff going on right now. I firmly believe I will come back to it but right now, no work has been done on it in several months.

Don't bother seeing the third movie. It was garbage. Terrible. Rubish. There aren't even enough negative adjectives to describe it. Robert A. Heinlein is spinning in his grave like a jet turbine thanks to Paul Verhoeven.
