There have been discussions as to the direction of the tech trees and I wanted to clear some stuff up and also propose some ideas and get a good idea of where you guys want to go with it.
Rebellion Faction Forks
Now there have been small talks about tech forks due to my post involving the Cerberus Titans. Factions Will fork into two separate sub-factions and I'm going to clarify how each one separates
Pure Human - This tech tree unlocks the Pure-Human titan which uses a very powerful directed energy weapon which completely ignores shields and destroys most intended targets in a single volley. Making it dangerous even for a reaper.
Titan - Pure Human (DEW Titan)
Synthesis - Combining the best of human tech with Reaper tech, Cerberus seeks to create a lethal hybrid. When all they do is become tools for the force they are trying to stop. That doesn't stop them from being any less lethal. Avoid their titan as if it were a Reaper.
Titan - Synthesis (Thanix Titan)
Paragon - Due to events surrounding the first attack by Saren and Sovereign on the Citadel, Commander Shepard saved the Destiny Ascension from a gloomy fate at the hands of Saren and his Geth. Being a War Asset the Destiny Ascension becomes a usable vessel for players choosing this branch.
Titan - Destiny Ascenion
Renegade - Making a tactical decision to save the citadel as a whole, Shepard took the alliance fleet and attacked sovereign, the Destiny Ascension was destroyed. For a time the Citadel Council was without a Dreadnought to lead its fleets. Turians made attempts at larger ships, and so did the alliance only to fail. Only one race lived up to role required of them in these tough times.
Titan - Volus Dreadnought
Destroy - The Reapers in their desire to keep the cycle, forsake all beings organic or synthetic during this cycle in an attempt to erase their failure and start anew. Using their vast army of Collectors as minions and their own massive force of Reapers they shall wipe the galaxy clean.
Titan - Ravager Class Reaper Titan
Control - The Geth after the lose of "The Construct." Lost perspective due to their lack of numbers and new found sense of simple self preservation returned to the old machines (The Reapers) in order to save themselves. The Geth fleet adds to that of the The Reapers. With the Reaper code geth are cunning, they are decisive, and stronger in numbers. Making them all the more lethal.
Titan - Geth Dreadnought
You guys are probably asking yourself, "Hey man, WTF. Why no new movies or in game shots yet." Simple with the release of ME3 I had a lot of work to do. I am working as fast I can to get things in order. Zombie and I have done more work on this mod in the last month than the combined last 11. I have had to remodel ships, station, and redesign the tech tree in order to work with rebellion. I assure you all that I am doing all I can to meet our July Deadline. Cerberus is almost done, Citadel Council is almost done as well. Reapers are going to take some time but while im working on the Reapers. Two of Three factions will be completed and assembled and put in game. Which will hasten the release.
Q & A
- Is the Citadel going to be included and what would its purpose be?
Simple, It is going to be included as a controllable station. Its placed at random on the galaxy map and players get a bonus for controlling it.
- Are the Reaper arms going to be closed or partially open?
You guys can vote on that, the one with the most upvotes and decent arguments why will be done.
- What kind of Super Weapons are you planning?
I'll give you one, its the C.A.R.E package. Short for Catastrophic Area Reaction Explosive, calling this a weapon of mass destruction is a huge understatement. A weapon used exclusively by Cerberus due to its "Legality" its a Nuke with a ferrous tip containing a eezo core fired from the main gun of a dreadnought. It hits with the force of a 10 kiloton bomb, after impact the eezo core is activated causing the mass of what ever object it hits to become unstable. After that reaction occurs it detonates with the force of a 100 megaton bomb (Equivalent to the Tsar Bomba, largest atomic explosion in recorded history) This weapon alone can destroy the eco-system of any planet it is used on. It is something to be feared and used only in extreme circumstances.
Any more questions, comments, concerns. Feel free to put them in the comments section.
