As I mentioned in another thread I'm working on two different mods at the same time on my own.
My concept for the second one is that it is set in the year 2000 in a parrallel universe. The main difference may be kind of offensive to some but that's not the intention.
Okay, here goes. In the Year 2000 in the parallel Earth, religion was kind of banished some four and a half centuries before. Because of this the advances in technology and society surpasses that of our Earth (because of the whole religion destroying pretty much everything scientific that went against 'god' thing some centuries ago). Now because of a military snafu, two of the three main superpowers (the U.N.A.N and the E.D.D) are on the brink of war which will drag the S.E.A into it eventually.
I know for a fact some Americans would be offended by this (which is not my fault) and I need to know how offensive this concept may be. I very much doubt I'll change the story but this is an intel gathering exercise.
Thank you for any input :)
And trust me, this mod will be great and as accurate as I can make it ie different terms, different city names (because of the different development of this Earth)
[U.N.A.N = Union of North American Nations E.D.D = European Democratic Dominion S.E.A = The State of East Asia]
sounds good, but don't u think that EDD and UNAN look a lot like eachother:confused:
[gold] well it sounds good and all but i must say good luck and i hope this mod does not die lol[/gold]
Thanks for the input guys/gals (delete as appropriate).
I can't see how they are similar except with the initials but I should add that the names are only at an early stage. I only just changed the name of the Asian side a few days ago from E.A.R which sounded a bit silly (East Asian Republic) but the initials are needed when putting it in the unit names ie U.N.A.N Trooper looks better than Union of North American Nations Trooper just looks wrong. I don't even know what I'm saying anymore, so I'll stop.
Also I have no desire for either of the mods to die, I'm totally dedicated to completing both. I've even booked the LAN network at college to playtest them each week :cool:
S.E.A.R. South East Asian Republic is better than E.A.R... Anyway. what you gonna have in this mod? think about it in as broad terms as possible... Less or No religion, why would this of happened? because of this people would have less or no qualms (worries) about the joys of genetic modification. how will Europe differ from America? I presume your still keeping that say, for money and power all the countries such as america were invaded? you've gotta have a country that has religion for some differences, perhaps there was a fat war between Europe and Asia all those years ago, and Europe and Asia both became very militaristic countries because of this, then all the people that wanted to keep their religion went to america, close to europe and america, and the religions merged. Then cos of this mixing of ideas some cool religion started in america, europe and asia have recovered from their war say 150 years later and start working together to destroy the religion in america that could threaten the new way of life in europe and asia. all this war would of been what propelled the development of technology, and america wouldn't in fact be the no.1 power as they were having to stay alive, so lets say europe and asia give up due to distances etc, america now has a racial hatred for europe and asia, develops technologies accordingly, europe and asia would have to have good navys as they have much river and islands and water, america would have navy to take south america as colony, europe colonises africa and australia and asia colonises everything else, (middle east) Maps would develop in same way as england having buisness and income as mass port for invasion of america, same for japan maybe, do the map making. america in south america find many strange plants which they use to develop medicines etc. tech has developed differently how? things were found out faster due to war and so there was a great need for scientists on all sides so science and education was encouraged above everything else, except physical prowess to fight. censorship would be in effect in the 2 militaristic nations, europe and asia, and propaganda would be a huge pasttime in america. you got a site? anyway, just trying to get you to think about things as much as possible, and give everything a history. what tech you gonna have for each side? you gonna change the game completely rather than just doing a different unit set for each country...? try doing it like generals, 2 sides get one thing, air, and the other doesn't, or 2 sides get buildings for income and the other gets units. if theres so much more technology then there'll be fewer ground units and greater use of internet, etc, to destroy each other.
sry but imust se if it works u have any pics
In reply to meltsand:
I am developing the story as we speak. You have some good ideas in there and I may 'unofficially' pinch some ;) I haven't yet decided the final name for the Asian side but I have renamed the E.D.D to E.D (European Dominion). I've decided that it is ran by a council.
Now about distinct differences: U.N.A.N will have hover technology (Asia) will have mechas E.D will be using armoured assault vehciles (not tanks as WW1 didn't happen in this world)
One side will also have laser technology too.
Also, the style of each sides music will be different too.
I have no site for it yet as I am temporarily offline due to a move of house, also why I can't upload pics
NO GOD!???!?! THAT IS THE DUMBEST IDEA EVER THOUGHT OF! What, are you racist against Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Hindis at the same time? (I know there are more religions, so dont bug me) You athiest scum. If I find, pray God will have mercy on you, because I won't
USA1, I hope you're joking...a little.
Yes yes, no god. This is because religion held back the sciences centuries ago so without religion we should be more developed. And guess what, little/no religious terrorism in this world (no jihads). Less discrimination, less bad tings really.
The tagline for the mod is:
In a world without religion, we put our faith not in a diety
...but in each other.
Except when the E.D accidently kills the U.N.A.N Presedent for being a suspected religious leader do things go terribly awry. :uhm:
But I have dcided to appease some religious people as I'm planning on having one of the campaigns ending in a religion being formed as part of a freer world and the such. The story is the main thing in development at the moment. When I've done a proper write up and the internet is back at home I'll upload some shashi.
Sorry. I was joking bout that mercy part... I think this would be a fairly good mod, though. I will just ignore that part now, ok?
