Imperial Dimension Neptunia (IDN) is a mod that aims to bring the fun of Neptunia to RTS format! It takes place in an alternative version of the Imperial Remnant era from Star Wars Legends. Imperial Dimension Neptunia overhauls and rebalances the Factions of Empire at War and even adds the Planetune Empire. Lots of new units from the Neptunia universe are added too. Neptune, Noire, Iris Heart, Arfoire, Kurome and many more characters will also appear to lead various mighty Empires!

State of the Imperial Planetune Empire Address


Hello everyone! Be they Imperial, Rebel, or Pirate. It is time to talk about the progress that has been made in terms of the mod in the past few months since it was started. Lets talk about where we are, what I am currently doing, what still needs to be done, and what the future plans for this mod are! Thus, my friends, we begin our State of the Empire address!


First lets start off with what has transpired in the past few months. Nothing bad has happened that has affected to the mod. Updates and pictures for the mod have been few, but the mod is still sailing smoothly. The main reason for the slow posting of pictures of the mod in April has been that currently the main thing I have been doing is rigging models and trying to make decent animations for them, which is one of the most time consuming parts, and picture wise doesn't look too interesting. Plus i've been busy. Most new units in the mod will be using custom rigs/skeletons. The Neptunia and Valkyria models themselves required a rig from scratch to work with EAW's alamo engine, and as a result they also need new animations too as the vanilla EAW animations can't be reused with them. As rigging/animations are the most time consuming part, these are what I am trying to complete first before moving on to other parts of the mod (so that the hardest part of the mod can be done first). And while some models are rigged, there are still many more that still need to be rigged/animated. Expect May to be a bit slow on pictures and updates as May is when I have alot of finals for class to complete, and thus less time to work on this mod.
Nevertheless, I am still learning on how to better rig and animate these models, and overall my skills are improving with more practice. In short, The mod will be operational and complete!


Now with that out of the way, lets discuss what is on the to do list for this mod, and what future plans are for it!

First off lets discuss what is already done or close to completion (these aren't listed in any specific order):

1) New planets have been added and coded in
2) The galaxy map has been edited so that planets are closer to their actual legends locations
3) many new space units added
4) a few new ground units have been added and animated
5) coding for many of the new units is done (though many of the ground units still need a new animation)
6) new weapon types/variants for space battles have been coded in and added


Currently my to do plans before the first alpha demo of the mod can be released are (these aren't listed in any specific order, and alpha release is still quite a bit of time away):

1) finish rigs and animations for at least the Neptunia units and make them playable
2) Make death clones for ships that're missing death clones, or to improve existing death clones for new ships
3) Finish up space balance and test it more
4) add some more ground vehicles/units
5) finish up rebalancing ground combat and try to make it more fun
6) add new music to the game
7) add new sounds to units (one of the last things i'll do)
8) make better ground maps for the new planets
9) add new names for ships

As for possible plans for the far future (for a future update, not initial release):

1) Add in more playable factions
2) try and improve the AI
3) add in more Galactic conquest scenarios and perhaps a mini story campaign
4) Add 1 late Clone Wars era galactic conquest scenario
5) add even more space/ground units
6) Make it so that when you conquer a planet, you have to first choose planet specialization before you can build on it. You can choose a civilian economy, wareconomy, or balanced economy. Civilian economy doesn't allow you to build any military buildings other than a militia bunker, and gives you access to additional population buildings and strong economic buildings (civilian factories, trade depots, etc). War economy allows you to build all the strongest vehicle and army factories/barracks, and gives access to officer academies and powerful ion cannons/hyper-velocity guns. Balanced economy allows you to build light barracks and light factories with some economic buildings.
7) make the Rebels have an alternate way to level up via research instead of only stealing technology (though research will only move their tech level up, but they'll still have to steal certain ship technology)
8) try to make the Zann consortium less painful to play against
9) expand the size of space maps and make them look nicer
10) rework infantry and vehicle recruitment/production. For example require a drill sergeant unit to be on a planet in order to build a barracks, and require an engineer to build a vehicle factory.
11) add new unit upgrades buildable in Galactic conquest


In conclusion, the mod still needs quite a bit of work though it is still being worked on. I was supposed to post this earlier, but multiple things came up. More status reports and pictures coming soon, and possibly even videos.
Btw, Happy May the 4th!
End Transmission.


Heres a sneak peak of some units that have been worked on recently:

New armor for the basic stormtrooper unit:


Possible Ground forms for Thrawn and Tarkin:


Dark Knight, New Bounty Hunter unit for the Imperial Remnant:


Grim Reaper, Imperial Veteran, minor hero variant of the field Commander:


Next Form White Heart (variant of CPU Blanc, who will only be available in certain galactic conquest scenarios as an Imperial Hero):

In Galactic conquest, all travel between planets will only be done via hyperlanes.

Will you include rom and ram in this mod? Will you also give Vert a little brother/sister of a CPU candidate of her own?

I apologize for the late reply.
If added, Rom/Ram would be added later in a future update.

>Will you also give Vert a little brother/sister of a CPU candidate of her own?
No plans for this as of right now as im trying to make the mod look try to follow the canon of the SW legends and HDN rebirth series.

Tomorrow I will post an update about the mod status. The mod is still coming along, even though it may seem to be made a little bit slowly! Imperial Dimension Neptunia will be operational no matter what. Hail the Empire and Planetune!

I actually had a mod like this in mind, but instead of putting the heroes on the Imperial side and the villains on the Rebel/Consortium side, it would be the heroes forming their own resistance called the Gamindustri Freedom League, while Rei Ryghts is leader of the Galactic Empire.

Unit-wise, the GFL would have the Arwing and Landmaster from Star Fox (renamed the SF-93 R-Wing and LM-97, respectively) instead of the X-Wing and T2-B, and a good portion of its fleet would be made up of New Class ships from the EU, but alot of it would still be the same as the Rebellion (depending on tech level, IF and Compa will either fly the Century Eagle, based on a ship design from Galactic Civilizations III, or the Millennium Falcon itself; remember, the Neptunia series is self-aware). The Empire, meanwhile, would be fundamentally the same as the vanilla Empire, except you can build multiple Super Star Destroyers, the Galaxy Gun (can take out all buildings on a planet, but not the units), and the World Devastator (destroys planets in exchange for credits).

For heroes, Neptune, Noire, Nepgear, and Linda would use Luke's animations, IF would use Han's animations, Uni would use Boba Fett's animations, and the rest would probably have to be custom animations. Sounds for the heroes would have to come from the Neptunia and games and anime, as well as any other works the VAs have been that sound close to the characters.

I call this pipe dream "Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Space War".
