teukros Posted February 2, 2005 Share Posted February 2, 2005 (edited) Well I've got the world's smallest TC (the .zip is like 9 kb), I call it the Ootini! TC. I've been sitting on it for almost half a year and now I want to share it with the world. But with all of the great work being done on true Total Conversions, I hesitate to upload my modest effort to the TC area... Hmmm you can't attach files to messages... Anyway the DLLs are all the same, the pictures on the cards are all the same, the Facilities and Defenses cards are all the same, even the Major Character cards are all the same (despite temptations to alter, mutilate, and otherwise abuse Skywalker). What I did was, I "tweaked" a lot of the values of the Ship, Fighter and Minor Character cards (including their encyclopedia entries) to reflect "reality", to make the Empire feel more "Imperial", and to (hopefully) make it an evenly balanced game (for two players at least). Here are a few sample Encyclopedia entries: Wedge Antilles Wedge Antilles is a veteran of the attack that destroyed the first Death Star. Gifted and resourceful, he organized and led the celebrated Rogue Squadron, an elite X-Wing starfighter squadron whose pilots are also SpecForce agents who are as dependable on the ground as they are in the cockpit - regardless of the mission. Jan Dodonna General Jan Dodonna was the Alliance officer who planned the assault on the first Death Star at the Battle of Yavin. When the Alliance evacuated the base on Yavin 4, Dodonna remained behind to destroy the base and cover the retreat. Jan Dodonna is the chief designer working on the Alliance's A-Wing project. The A-Wing Starfighter Refined Material Cost: 15Maintenance Cost: 15Attack Strength (Laser Cannon): 45Attack Strength (Ion Cannon): 0Shield Energy: 15Hyperdrive: Yes The A-wing is a lightweight, agile and extremely fast starfighter. The A-wing carries twin, wing-mounted blaster cannon, twin concussion missile launchers, an extensive sensor package, and light armor and combat shielding. It is an ideal choice for space superiority as well as hit and fade missions. The B-Wing Starfighter Refined Material Cost: 21Maintenance Cost: 24Attack Strength (Laser Cannon): 48Attack Strength (Ion Cannon): 72Shield Energy: 45Hyperdrive: Yes The Slayn & Korpil B-Wing was designed by Admiral Ackbar as a new generation of heavy assault starfighter. Mounting two proton torpedo launchers and a small turbolaser, with dual blaster cannon and three ion cannon, a single B-wing can threaten a small capital starship. The T.I.E. Defender Refined Material Cost: 27Maintenance Cost: 30Attack Strength (Laser Cannon): 63Attack Strength (Ion Cannon): 48Shield Energy: 39Hyperdrive: Yes The T.I.E. Defender is one of the few production fighters to be equipped with both a shield generator and hyperdrive system (although it still lacks life support). The Defender mounts considerable firepower in the form of proton torpedo and twin concussion missile launchers, two ion cannon and four automatic laser cannon which can target multiple enemies at once! Maneuvering thrusters are housed in the three odd shaped panels which give the Defender maneuverability almost on the level of the Alliance's A-wing, with speed to match that of the T.I.E. Interceptor. The Bulk Cruiser Refined Material Cost: 30Maintenance Cost: 30Fighter Capacity: 0Troop Capacity: 0Shield Strength: 200 Attack Strength: Fore Aft Port Starboard Turbolaser: 30 0 60 60Ion Cannon: 0 0 0 0Laser Cannon: 0 0 0 0 Bulk Cruisers were economical derivatives of Dreadnoughts which were sold on the open market and were never intended for front line duty. Rugged but very lightly armed and incapable of carrying troops or fighters, the Bulk Cruiser has until recently been one of the mainstay ships of the Alliance Fleet. The Nebulon-B Frigate Refined Material Cost: 34Maintenance Cost: 35Fighter Capacity: 2Troop Capacity: 0Shield Strength: 200 Attack Strength: Fore Aft Port Starboard Turbolaser: 40 0 20 20Ion Cannon: 0 0 0 0Laser Cannon: 180 180 90 90 The 300 meter long Nebulon-B Frigate is built for the Empire by the Kuat Drive Yards. Primarily an anti-starfighter platform, its turbolasers allow it to engage small vessels and it also has the capacity for two starfighter squadrons. The Victory Star Destroyer Refined Material Cost: 68Maintenance Cost: 44Fighter Capacity: 2Troop Capacity: 2Shield Strength: 200 Attack Strength: Fore Aft Port Starboard Turbolaser: 240 0 200 200Ion Cannon: 0 0 0 0Laser Cannon: 0 0 0 0 The Victory Star Destroyer, though old, is a capable combat vessel and is an important part of the Imperial Star Fleet. The VSD was designed with planetary invasion in mind and can enter a planet's atmosphere to deliver accurate and devastating bombardments prior to the insertion of troops. These are just samples... but that's enough for now. What do you think... should I upload it to the TC area? Edited February 2, 2005 by teukros Put an overpowered Solar Ionization Reactor in between two cheap-ass engines and a couple of laser cannon, put a chair with a rudimentary flight control and targeting computer on top, and surround the (unpressurized!) pilot with enough armor plate so he doesn't fry in a tenth of a second... riiiiiiiiight Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
