Okay so after the length of time that BIVR has been around and with my AFC sub forum for the next installment I've not exactly had alot of time to do any modding. This is due to my modding Star Wars Empire At War (expansion). Anyway, what this thread is about is the small fact that after one of my semi frequent format/reinstallations, I decided to actually play the stock single player campaign. It actually felt pretty good to spend nearly two hours playing the first level and take my time. Now to my problem. Whilst of course the model quality is always going to be poor, I was not happy with having the poor selection of ships available (defiant, akira) which means your looking at the need to build dozens of these classes. So this miniproject will be similair to BIVR but with two minor differences:

1) Resources costs for this will be almost exactly the same as the regular stock game (build times will be a bit higher but not by much), and strengths will be practically the same. 2) There won't be much in the way of additions, but all the models will be either replaced or updated. Single player maps will be updated as well.

Now before anyone says anything, yes I know theres already an A2 upgrade project in the works but this is my way of doing this. Of course it'll be released once its done and because theres no a great deal in the way of changes it'll mean that it shouldn't take a great deal of time.

Anyway, this isn't part of the BI series so stand by for some updates. Oh and this miniproject won't be using the Flops PP project so theres not going to be a need for anything else other than v1.1 update for the game itself.

Major A Payne;4542965Now before anyone says anything, yes I know theres already an A2 upgrade project in the works but this is my way of doing this. Of course it'll be released once its done and because theres no a great deal in the way of changes it'll mean that it shouldn't take a great deal of time.

I'm only doing graphics (including map updates to include graphical advances from projects like Midnight), an AI that can make a reasonable accounting of itself and balance changes as required to give the AI an even chance with the player.

I'd been hoping someone would pick it up afterwards and mod it as was done with the original A2 upgrade packs. If you'd like to use it as a starting point i'd be quite happy to give you a pre release copy, which is complete to the start of the Borg campaign as of now.
