I guess it’s high time I posted sth.
For some time now I was thinking about making my own mod. I consulted with Darkstar and following his recommendation I’m officially starting the developement of my own project. I already have all the graphics for the mod though there is a lot of coding I will have to do. I was reading about it a lot so I think I will be able to make all the work required on my own, though I am going to ask you guys a lot of noob questions in the coming days.
I don’t really have any name for the mod, but it will introduce one new race to the game. The new race will have about 7 new ships, one unique racial weapon and one subsystem. My aim is to make this thing as balanced as humanly possible, so don’t expect super-doom-laser, Ultra-nuclear-torpedoes or the unmatched and terrifing RAINBOW BEAM. I plan to finish the work on the ships in a week or two and than ask some of you for help with balancing about which I have no idea whatsoever. Anyways, I think it would be appropriate to include some eye candy in this post, so I uploaded pictures of the turrets I prepared and some of the ships (this pic is not from the game, I made it in gimp so it looks more or less as it would).
*I made the turrets using parts of the ships, which in turn I made using parts of ships from Angels Fall First Mod for Homeworld2, so the credit for the original artwork goes to the team that made them.[/size]
