Post news RSS EMPIRE AT WAR 2 - BACK FROM THE DEAD

I've decided that I'm going to take up this hobby once again. I haven't got much to do with my time but play games, so I figure, why not mod them?

We're BACK in the saddle again.
Summer and fall have come and past. Every winter EAW modding taunts me. I always seem to come back around this time of year- every year for the past 5. I'm excited to work on this mod again, and I plan on staying until the job is done. I noticed people were still interested in this mod last night and began to consider doing it again, and now I will.

Work will come SLOWLY
But steadily. My goal is to give news updates once a month, and get pictures up once a week. The speed at which media is uploaded will increase after exams are over. News will only come once a month- but I will try to make them as filled with new stuff as possible.

New plans
I'm operating on a new machine, with a fresh hard drive. That means the mod that I had before is lost. But, this brings something good as well. it gives me the ability to change the plan I had for the mod. Don't worry, what I had planned before will be pretty much the same- but I have a few things I want to change. I'll cover them in brief here, but the January update will bring them out in full detail.

A fun experience
I'm not one to follow things completely canonically. I will to an extent, but fun>realism in every game in my opinion. I want to make the game feel smooth and fast paced. And I will. What am I talking about?

Well, we can look at a game like Battlefield Bad Company 2. It's very realistic, but the gameplay is, for lack of a better word, chunky. The animations feel slow, the GUI looks bad. I still had fun playing it. But DICE came out with Battlefield 3, and it was a huge success, it challenged Call of Duty, unlike the previous game.

DICE focused on mixing amazing graphics with realism with an arcade experience, to make the ultimate FPS experience. So I will do the same with the Alamo engine, to make the best RTS experience possible with the limitations of said engine.

I haven't found words to put my idea into yet- so I will figure that out and put it all out in update format as soon as I can actually.. figure it out.

Have a good day, and watch the mod to stay tuned for the January update!

awesome stuff, what time period are you going to be doing or are you pretty over hauling just the game as it is?

There's no time period, really. It all gets covered in the summary on the front page- basic 4 factions, cis, rep, rebels, imps, etc. Like battlefront.

And yes I'm going to do what I can to make it look like an actual EAW2. Like a 2013 eaw2. With a 7 year old engine, lol.
