Those amongst you may remember a Star Trek Armada 1 mod that was made many years that went unfinished (it was aprox. 75% completed). Well with a new game and game engine to mod comes a bigger and, hopefully, more complete version. WCI is now being slowly compiled for the Star Wars Empire at War expansion and is going to be solely a space based conversion. We are recreating a majority of the stock WC models to better fit the needs of the game engine and there is going to be significant usage of the capital ship fighter launch capabilities. There is going to be extensive changes to as much of the game as possible and news updates will be posted here, so stand by...... and stay tuned.

The end of an era!!!

News 2 comments

Okay so its been five months or so, since the last news update. Alas I had some large scale plans for this mod but now, again, for some reason the AI is refusing the budge from its home planet for the test GC I made. The only thing I can think of is the stock game and the handful of mods I've played all have one thing in common - The home planets have surface usable maps. This has left me with one choice, and one choice only - The mod is considered finished. Unless a drastic solution is found there will be no further updates to this version of the mod and it will remain as v2.5. All mod files will, therefore, be archived and placed in storage. Appologies to anyone who may have been looking forward to the v3.0 update but all is not lost......

......WC: Invasion 2 will be officially announced some time in the future but will most likely be returning to a more "familiar" game engine (it would be really nice if I was capable of programming a custom made game engine but no matter), so stay tuned for a new page!!!

I love this mod. And like very much its models.

But there are also some things, which I didn`t like.
1. In GC there are still SW heroes of many factions
2. Too low incomes for factions in GC. Can you pls in next time increase income from mines and resourse buildings? AI is working extremely powerful and destroying player in first 30 minutes. Everywhere player needs money, but its no and there is the reason of defeat. Too much hardcore, I also wanted say, unreal hardcore.

Thanks anyway

Hi, actually this mod doesn't work in GC. In its current state, it is only a space skirmish.

I'm working on a GC version, but progress has been stopped for months due to real life issues and I'm not sure when I can pick it up again. Sorry folks, life is a b****.

But I do have this in mind and will get back to it when possible. Thanks.

Happy New Years!

I am currently working on an update. I have decided to overhaul the space mode in preparation to do the GC mode. The overhaul will be quite significant, I'm about 1/2 way done, so I think I will upload this first as Patch 2.8.

The changes will be quite significant, both operational and visual.

Operationally, the AI works better when the ships are matched in their check and balance system: bomber --> capship --> frigate --> corv --> fighters --> bombers. This means that each ship and fighter needed to be cleaned up, making sure everything in the coding fits correctly. This also means each type must have the appropriate shielding/armor/masking of the correct type.

Visually, I've been creating different projectiles for each different cannon type. They vary in shape, color, size, firing delay, etc.. This is taking a long time as there are a lot of projectiles in this game. Also, I'm not sure if I've included it in the 2.7 release, but I did make custom icons for the Nephilim heroes and custom text.

So generally, here's the progress:
Confederation: 100% complete
Kilrathi: 50% complete
Nephilim: 0% complete

---

So after this is finish and uploaded, I'll work on the GC mode. I'm learning as I'm going along, so please be patient.

Thanks and happy new years!

Hi guys,

Sorry for the late reply. I actually lost interest b/c it is very difficult to modify the AI behavior and require a lot of testing. So I actually didn't work on this, fell into other projects I'm working on.

However, I have a better idea for GC mode of this mod and which is what I'm working on now...

"why not land mode?" I don't have that much time to work on it, but I would like to pop out a reasonable playable version in the distant future. I've worked on my own EAW/FOC mod where I modified land units, this is what got me interested in just using the existing game data to form some sort of land teams... it won't have a lot of custom stuff, other than ones I'll make with existing game models etc... but it will leave room in the future for other modders who may want to carry on.

but so far it is all just in my head... it will take some time to implement this.

Well, I've been mostly preoccupied with my own mod - the EAW / FOC mini mod. It is all new to me, so learning as I go along. I'm pretty much done with my mod, don't seen any forseable thing to change in the future.

I've been dabbling in the GC mode of this mod. The creator, Maxpayne, left a lot of the GC material still in the mod so I just pieced them together. From the article above, there seem to be some issue with the AI. I was able to somewhat fix the AI issue, not completely. It will take some work and time to research more on the AI functions, but I think at least I found the location to the cause of the problem.

Anyhow, I don't want to get people's hopes up, but it looks like it might be possible to finish the GC work started by Maxpayne. It will take some time though.

As someone who only first read the Wing Commander books last week, I'd like to thank you for helping bring the WC universe to a strategy platform. I'm looking forward to trying the mod out!
