Post news Report content RSS feed POLL: Progress and Scaling

Im almost ready to overhaul the unit scaling systems. Let your opinion be heard!

Posted by on

Allright guys, id like your input as to how to proceed with the scaling of the units.
I will leave this up for a week, then announce the results. You may submit your opinion either by:
Commenting on this article (preferred), commenting on the ModDB mod's page, emailing or PMing me, or signing up for my website and posting in the forums (also preferred). You may also comment on Twitter by mentioning @GalaxyofChaos or by using #GoCMod.
Now, onto the options.
As you know, we use a great many models from differing sources, so the scaling is not always cogent (YTIEs being as big as Havoc bombers, or Praetors being the same size as the Eclipse, for example). There are also quite a few scaling mods out there.
So, would you like to see:
A) Scaling according to canon (converting canon measurements into a working scale model)
B) Scaling according to Vanilla FoC (using stock units as a baseline then scaling around them)
C) Scaling according to maps (Using the map sizes as the scaling guide)
D) Scaling according to whatever (create an original scaling system)

While you're reading this, you may also append your opinion on mod development:
Do you prefer emphasis on:
A) New units, or reworked units
B) Gameplay changes (abilities, game mechanics, new factions)
C) Canon!!!
D) Just give me something different

Don't be that guy and not vote.
Remember to follow on Twitter, sign up for my website, and if you want to get involved, im always looking for help!

I vote for scaling-A, (i think cannon makes mods good) as for the second vote...I'd like C but also not limited by it, so if you can add a bunch of new features without damaging the cannon of the game then go for it!!

Several units are anachronistic to their factions and such (fury fighters, pellaeon star destroyers, the Viscouny)
But i try to keep the units themselves canon, if thats what you were getting at

If it makes you feel any better, the second poll will be affected by weight, instead of plurality/majority

If I tell you that between me and my children we total about 750 pounds, does that add enough weight? =)

Sorry, sorry, I couldn't resist "punning" you. =)
