Post news RSS Weekly Update #1

Indept information about the mod. Area's, Gameplay, Planets.

Posted by on

Welcome to our first weekly update, this week, we are going to discuss the area's the mod will take place in, the planets you are going to battle on, and the way you will battle.I think i better tell it straight away: Locals at War will become all area. We start with the galactic civil war, but will expand to the clone wars, the old republic, legacy, new jedi order and ect. The thing is, we are not going to put each faction under a certain tech level, we are going to make a new factions for every area. as long as the game allows that. Now that is told, let's talk about the planets. We will start with Naboo and Coruscant, but more planets will be added for each area. the ammount of maps per planet depends on how much points of interrests a planet has (see wookiepedia). We will map every one of them, with around a minimum mapsize of 10 on Naboo (Hypori map size) and a mapsize of 15 for Coruscant which is really really huge. Galactic conqusts will be converted to these planets, so from now on a galactic conquest is called a planetary conquest. In planetary conquest you will also be able to go to another location, locatiosn replace palnets, by land, so transporting over space isn't needed anymore, you could controll alot of planets, without needing to clear te skies. This also brings it's disadvantage to the attacker, because he can't call in areal support, and the opposing faction can. Now if you are getting invaded or invade someone else, you might run out of reinforcments, this is were we are going to amke a new feature too: call in reinforcements from other planets. Just some sences ago i called space, this is my fault, we don't have space battles anymore, we have atmospheric battles, all you battles with ships will be atmospheric.This was the information releashed for this week, hope to see you next week again, because then i will discuss base building, and hopefully the Stormtrooper model will be done. This week i will present you the map: Great Grassy Plains, hope you like it (see image section).

To do this you need to break EaW harcode; which goes against the contract you automatically sign by modding EaW, therefore it's 1 Impossible unless you're good enough of a coder to practically remake EaW from scratch 2 If you really are that good, it's illegal.
