Hello modders! Besides my thoughts about a small Babylon 5 mod, I was thinking about a mod consisting of units and ships from the [COLOR=red]Edge Of Chaos - Independence War II [/COLOR]game. The ships and techs featured in this game are great! Many things, like Gatling-guns, cutting lasers, reactive shields, jump accelerators (some kind of jump gates) and many more can be realized in Armada 2 (and maybe in Armada 1) Earth and its colonies are mostly ruled by Megacorporations like Maas Industries. They keep the civilian citizens to their feet. Most of the citizens have to work all day to get enough money to pay fees and depts to the Corporations that financed their voyage from the overcrowded inner colonies to the outer colonies. The government is more or less a puppet, controlled by the Corporations. But in the outer colonies resistance is rising. The people do not want to work forever for the MegaCorporations. The parties for the armada game would be: The Space Navy/Police: At first, the Navy was a armed unit to stop riots, to fulfill ceremonial tasks and as support for the police forces. Even if the breakdown of the classic governmental body and its sold out to the Corporations, the Navy is a more or less independent force. Financed by local fees, the Navy consists of troops from all the core worlds. Even if the Navy is commanded by the marionette government, its peace securing mission had not changed for the last 200 years. Observers are unsure about the side the Navy would choose, when a conflict between the civilian population and the Corporations would erupt, as it should defend the interest of the governement - and so the interests of the corporations. Maas Corporation: The Maas Corporation, led by Caleb Maas and founded by his father, is the most influential Corporation existing. It has its own military force, bases and large industrial complexes within the whole known space. The Maas Corporation controlls the press and tv of the outer colonies and is even allowed to use its military as a police force to control ships, freighters and other units. The League: Within the Badlands, a group of outer colonies, a new alliance of different independent factions was created to fight a pirat organisation called "Marauders" and the influence of the MegaCorporations. It could be said, that this is a people's liberation army. Marauder: The Marauder are a Terrorist/Pirat fraction with the assumed support of some larger Corporations like Maas Industries, even if they also raid convois of these corporations. They kill everything in their way. The positions of their bases are not known, so that they can strike everywhere at every time they choose. [COLOR=navy]Right now I am searching for modders!

But now, a few pics from models, that have already been made: http://img374.imageshack.us/img374/4155/mining4bw.jpg http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/7019/trooptransporter9ql.jpg http://img325.imageshack.us/img325/4908/containerfreighter1xi.jpg http://img466.imageshack.us/img466/8280/adminstationtextured5kb.jpg intrepid out.

Enterprising idea. Sounds very much like a mix of the "Firefly" universe and the "Gap Series" by Stephen Donaldson. I welcome any new mods for Armada. New races/genres are sweet. I only ask that you make it compatible with the original races... There's enough room to add 4 new races without overwriting the originals. 'Cause it's cool when you can bring a new fleet to try and destroy sector 001... I am very busy with my own mods (2 I'm working on right now, and at least 2 more I'm planning (and that doesn't include the 4 other games I want to mod)) but if you need some help, I'll consider lending my talent to keep your creation alive. Also, your models look good to me. Even the textures are okay, but with a little refinement, they'll be great. Qapla
Okay, thanks. Hm, I would need somebody who knows the game and who can do the models, as I have quite a lot to do besides the mod and I would like to continue my Babylon 5 ship series. Of course I would further make models for the mod, but also I wanna try a few odf things for myself. So is there anybody?
I want YOU for modelling! I need a few modellers who can build some ships from the Independence War 2 game for the A2 mod. It would be really nice if someone could help!
