this is an update on whats happening in the mod....

Posted by Spinobreaker on Apr 9th, 2011

Hey
This is just a quick update.
Basically, the offer is over for now
Ive finished coding (but not testing) Halo and SG into the mod. There are a few issues i cant resolve, not sure y...
For instance for some insane reason Anubis's super weapon is refusing to work. And ive tried that, and that, and that, and that... to fix it, if u know what i mean. Ive gone over it 10x and so success. Not only that but others have tried as well, we cant get it to work...

Another thing, im going to be refining all the major factions as i go. Stargate and Halo, are now im place. Im working on BSG. Ill be working on that for a while, until its fullly setup. Im not sure how long itll take, since im hopefully going back 2 work in a few days. Itll probably take a fwe more months before ive tuned the damage sets correctly.

Im also looking as squadrons for the fleet. I think ive posted this before, but i wanted to double check it with u guys before i continue with it
heres the squadron lists for the factions so far. The main ones i want to check are the Babylon 5 and Wing Commander ones. Ive got it more or less worked out. T1-3 get 1 support ship, 4-6 get 2, 7-9 get 3, 10 gets 20, since its the carrier, 11 gets 4, 12 gets 4. Heroes will also get there own combo of support ships. And theyll be a combo of fighters and fighter bombers.

Ive also changed the roles of the bombers in the mod as well. THeyve gone from being specific bombers to be more of a fighter bomber roll. They will default to fighter, but if u activate the bomb ability, theyll start firing bombs instead.

Also when it comes to balance, size is everything. We all saw the balance sheet i posted a few months back, suggesting how i was going 2 balance it all in. Well ive decided that the size ofthe ship should be reflected in its health. All ships <1km have standard heath, but <2km get x2 heath, <3 get x3 health etc. Ive done this because i found the larger ships were getting there buts kicked by smaller ones because of this difference. Amd once i implemented that it became more of a fair fight.

That said im still open to all feedback, even if previously posted in regard to the recent, no longer available internal i posted here. Quite a few people downloaded it and tested it, so im open to all feedback on that.

Anyway heres the squadron list (due to update errors i will put some in as comments or something)

thanks, how bout shielded/non-shielded for the same list
All fighters/bombers ingame are unsheilded for balance reasons, but the others can vary. By sheilded i mean stargate/trek style shields, and non-sheilded is more like battlestar. So basically if the dont have proper shields then theyre non-sheilded
thanks

spinno, you can check out the arnaments/defences on this link, Angelfire.com for most capital ships, also, the third space suport ship is called "3Alpha" according to Efni.org further more I also dont think the Avioki carries any fighter support in it's bays... but the brakiri have fighters so you can add 2 of those for balancing....

the cake is a lie

kaken er en løgn

kagen er en løgn

ciasto jest kłamstwem

der Kuchen ist eine Lüge

kakan är en lögn

la torta es una mentira

kek bir yalan

de taart is een leugen

le gâteau est un mensonge

kaka er lygi

bu keks bir yalandır
