The Saint Posted August 25, 2005 Share Posted August 25, 2005 I'm not a modder, wish I was, I'll learn one day though I suppose before I die. I've got another 60 years to go I figure..ahem..onto the point..I've just been brainstorming some ideas really on what could be done for modifications to EaW. Keeping in mind that we dont really know if the two factions will be hardcoded into the game and thusly unchangable and no new factions are able to be added the scenarios I give will be designed solely for the purpose for a mod with two factions: Wing Commander: Honestly now there arent enough mods for this game series, even though the games themselves were epic space sims in which you could actually win or lose a war. There havent been really many flightsims which allow you to lose a war just as quickly as you win it unless you die and then its a game over. Back to the point of the matter, there is a vast plethora of information concerning ships, dates, times, worlds(one game came with a map which detailed the jump routes from one planetary system to another..hundreds upon hundreds of planetary systems and the factions they fell under). The main crux of the storyline is simple, you have two sides, the Terran Confederation, and the Kilrathi Empire, have been at each others throats for some time..both of them are established however the Kilrathi have a slightly larger military..this would be a rather convential war based around the Carriers both sides put forth. There is a plethora of fighter and bomber craft, transports, destroyers, cruisers, even corvettes. And there are also superweapons for both sides. Definately something to keep in mind. Space Above and BeyondNow there has to be someone on this board who rememebrs this show. United Nations Government vs a race of aliens known only as the Chigs. Fighting on dozens upon dozens of worlds. Its the same as Wing Commander except the SAAB universe is smaller, the ground warfare is better mapped out but their isnt as much information about the ships other than the main Carrier for humanity. Everything else would have to be guessed. This would be a good idea for someone who is just scre wing about and wants to make their first mod(more than likely if I decide to throw my hat in the ring this will be it) Any Babylon 5 War:You cant help but be able to pluck a one on one conflict out of the B5 Universe. The Earth-Minbari War, the Earth-Dilgar Conflict, the Narn-Centauri War, the Earth Civil War. The list goes on for a bunch more conflicts but really now...from what we've seen of the graphics engine in pictures of EaW..I doubt there isnt one fan of B5 who wouldnt want a chance to recreate the Battle of the Line. Heck, I'd play a losing war as Earth just for that sole purpose/ There are of course others, the sky is really the limit for this game depending on the tools which are released for modification purposes..and in the end we can all dream, cant we?
