Im pleased to announce that my FOC mod "Shadows of the Underworld" is coming along so well lately, that I'm able to take some time out and start talking about it.
This mod is a result of never being quite happy with the galactic map 'Equal Footing'. It seemed generic so I set out to make a more 'realistic' GC map, which I believe I have done. The mod is now focusing on adding both the Hutts and Black Sun as playable factions, both with the same quality as the originals and each with their own unique gameplay style. This thread is to chronicle its development as well as gain feedback from the community. Heres the first screen - a menu teaser.
Hutts and Black Sun- sounds interesting:p ! Good luck in making it! Will you add more stuff for existing factions( especially consortium)?
Looks good.... Is it just you making the mod?
Yes more units are being added, however there won't be much that isn't already available as source downloads. I only have milkshape which doesn't support .alo model export. Right now I'm more concerned with gameplay mechanics and AI. Yes its just myself, no team for now. The only downside right now is lack of a useable modeling program, but its not priority at the moment.
This name is actually really good... (yes i know its kind of a rip-off of Shadows of the Empire, but it actually makes more sense in this text). Looking forward to it ;)
Finally an interesting mod that doesn't have to do with the clonewars!
I like the logo. And you just dissed yourself clonecommander.
Not really............. I was really refering to AOTHOR and CWEM
Droid;3364449This name is actually really good... (yes i know its kind of a rip-off of Shadows of the Empire, but it actually makes more sense in this text). Looking forward to it ;)
Thanks! Believe it or not, I thought long and hard on a name before finally arriving at one I felt encompassed the feel and description of the mod. And yes, it crosses Shadows of the Empire with reference to the Zann consortium on purpose. :)
I've added EV-9D9 and Guri to their respective Droid Log menus but one thing that is eluding me is where to make changes for the droid advisor on the galactic map. If anyone knows which file they are referenced in it would be most helpful.
I beilive its FACTIONS.xml, but it could be commandbarcomponents.xml, or GUIDialogs.xml Not sure, cause I've never tried it yet, but logic says one of the three.
