Hey Guys! I'm still alive and I've once again found myself itching to do some mod work and as a result I've decided to make some changes and see if I can't get some of those Centauri ships completed and ingame.
One of the biggest annoyances I have with the mod is the AI. It just doesn't work. So, I've decided to redo some aspects of the Control Point system in order to make it more usable by the computer. Now the computer will capture points without being given a free ship. I've also made it so that only a special ship can capture points, these Command and Control Transports will not only be used to capture points, but by placing them in designated areas within the control points you will be able to generate extra RU's.
I'm also hoping to help the AI along by making the roles of the different ships a bit more specific, right now everything seems to be able to do everything. With any luck, giving the different ships specific roles will help the AI choose its fleet compositions a bit more intelligently.
Something else that I have felt the mod has been lacking is interceptor technology for Earth Force. They really do suffer without it. Sadly, it requires recreating all the pulse weapons and turning them into missiles. At least as far as HW2 is concerned. They want be able to track there targets or anything and they should look the same as the do now (hopefully) but they'll be physical objects that can be destroyed.
Wow. I haven't made a wall of text in ages. Feels good. :)
Look out for progress. I'll post pics every now and then as I go. As always and comments or questions are welcome.
