Title: Status report on the table top round-up mod
guitarhead1000 - April 2, 2006 04:02 AM (GMT)
So people heres the idea if any one hasn't gotten it yet were adding new units to this mod to make it more fluffy. so in light of that heres the news. Bikes not done yet, scorpian may or may not be in game up to Zany, medes... studying so no new models. So basically progress is moving but at a slower paise then i think we all wish.
Zany Reaper - April 2, 2006 09:53 AM (GMT)
I thought I set it up so ordinary members couldn't Start topics here. Ah well.
I've completed the Scorpion, yes, & I gave it to mudflap over a week ago, possibly 2. He e-mailed mr recently but it didn't tell me much, except for that he'd try to get the tank ingame, aften the bikes & Ork weapons are finished.
I think he's working on a few more animations for the bikes, then it may be made public.
guitarhead1000 - April 2, 2006 03:02 PM (GMT)
amazing so progress is moving and no you set up so we couldnt post in rules. sorry if i wasnt supposed to posts here.
Zany Reaper - April 2, 2006 03:17 PM (GMT)
Well, check out this page that some uber modeler/texture artist made - http://www.arid777.co.uk/moddow
guitarhead1000 - April 2, 2006 06:24 PM (GMT)
lol wacky beat you to that i saw it like 2 or 3 weeks ago. But yeah it looks great problem is they look choppy or idk how to explain it. they just dont look like right.
Zany Reaper - April 2, 2006 06:49 PM (GMT)
It was Mudflap that showed me that page, about a month ago. I don't think they look choppy, they look rather high quality. Do you mean the edges of the models?
guitarhead1000 - April 2, 2006 07:04 PM (GMT)
Never mind on closer inspection they look good i think its the background there shown in makes them look odd.
Zany Reaper - April 2, 2006 09:39 PM (GMT)
yeah, the backgrounds on some of the models are plain, but it's the models that count. I think that Mudflap's trying to get some models off this medeler. he e-mailed me a picture of the Keeper of Secrets, so he already has that!
he wants to convert it into a daemonette model too, but that won't be needed as the same guy's already made one anyways...
Chris - April 8, 2006 08:00 PM (GMT)
I concur. :rolleyes:
They do look fairly good. :ph43r:
Zany Reaper - April 8, 2006 09:16 PM (GMT)
He e-mailed me saying that he'll 'try' to get he rigged support portal for me.
Unfortunately, ha's also gonna have less modding time, as he's got a new baby. Sweet, but sour for us I guess, in a way... Oh well, there's a contigency plan, thanks to Guitarhead1000...
Stim - April 9, 2006 11:51 AM (GMT)
What about eldar t4 building?
Zany Reaper - April 9, 2006 11:56 AM (GMT)
Well, the new building will be based off the support portal. I've asked havoc to get it for me too, in case Mudflap doesn't.
GrottylilGretch - April 13, 2006 11:42 AM (GMT)
o zany the site is Catwell's and it's really good and now I gotta go so cya
Zany Reaper - April 13, 2006 05:36 PM (GMT)
Chris, you just posted more spam. Deleting & removing posts...
If you mean Arid777/moddow or the other page, then yeah, I gave some of my scorpion files to Catwell for him to tweak. I hope he hurries.
GrottylilGretch - April 14, 2006 04:25 AM (GMT)
yea, but it'll be worth while because he is good
guitarhead1000 - April 22, 2006 10:56 PM (GMT)
lol i dont remember the contigency plan i gave you but it was probably good lol. anyways i was gonna ask catwell to make some models that i thought would be nice but hes quite busy right now. man vacation fried my brain.
Zany Reaper - April 23, 2006 04:25 PM (GMT)
GH1000, you're back from your holiday!
Do we need any more models from him?
I got Compiler to correct many of the mistakes I made in the Scorpion. I'm gonna check later to see if they actually work.
guitarhead1000 - April 23, 2006 11:45 PM (GMT)
great to be back i wanted the landraider crusader but sadly he cant right now but oh well.
Zany Reaper - April 24, 2006 07:27 PM (GMT)
I don't think there's much of a point of having the land raider crusader in the mod anyways, apart from an anti-infantry land-raider.
BadgerNun - April 25, 2006 05:49 PM (GMT)
As if the current Land Raider isn't good against infantry.
Zany Reaper - April 25, 2006 07:31 PM (GMT)
Yeah, but that's plain DOW. You haven't played the Fatality mod, haven't you?
BadgerNun - April 26, 2006 05:40 PM (GMT)
Err, well, I err.. I might just have downloaded it..., but I, err...
Well, ok then.
Big confession time.
I haven't ACTUALLY played your mod Zany, but from reading the stuff on DOW Files I thought it had promise and I made the offer!
But I still haven't got round to playing it, what with resetting my computer and everything..
Zany Reaper - April 26, 2006 07:07 PM (GMT)
That's OK. I haven't played the Left-out units mod either. I'm too busy with this stuff! I've got the battle fortress & am currently tweaking it. THis will be VERY hard!
BadgerNun - April 27, 2006 05:43 PM (GMT)
You haven't played Leftoutunits mod!!!!!!
Then you haven't lived!!!!!!!!!!
But then I can't talk, since I haven't played your mod...
WackyModder - April 28, 2006 07:33 PM (GMT)
idk, the land raider crusader would be an awsm addition if you ask me:
Zany Reaper - April 28, 2006 10:05 PM (GMT)
BadgerNun - May 4, 2006 05:48 PM (GMT)
Hey, just checked this out, some Necron models up for grabs (I think!)!Necron models up for grabs
Zany Reaper - May 4, 2006 10:10 PM (GMT)
Hah hah Badgernun! I've already downloaded them via a link on the Relic forums. They'd make a good addition to our mini-Necron race!
However, the original things come 1st. We've still got nowhere as WM & MaestroRobertus haven't sent me the requested files yet.
BadgerNun - May 5, 2006 05:40 PM (GMT)
Ah well, I'll go find some other stuff...
Zany Reaper - May 5, 2006 05:59 PM (GMT)
Now, what about what MaestroRobertus said?
To be helpful - Badgernun, maybe you could 'ask' him about these LUAs he was gonna send me?
BadgerNun - May 6, 2006 10:54 AM (GMT)
MaestroRobertus? Dunno him, sorry.
I don't have the same contacts as you.
Minaithnir2005 - May 8, 2006 09:10 PM (GMT)
hey guys, do you need any testers, and when is the release?
GrottylilGretch - May 9, 2006 12:14 AM (GMT)
Minaithnir your help would be very apprieciated and 'IT' might take a while because the mod hasn't been around that long and we are just gathering people and models at the mo. Also you'll need Winter Assault Expansion pack.
Minaithnir2005 - May 9, 2006 10:16 AM (GMT)
got the WA expansion patched to most recent (1.41) will get DC and 1.5 when released. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org, im free to help in any way i can (which is test and use AE morinically :) )
BadgerNun - May 9, 2006 05:34 PM (GMT)
Hey people, you've probably seen this, but the latest Closer to Codex mod is out!Closer to Codex: Firestorm
Zany Reaper - May 9, 2006 06:11 PM (GMT)
MInaithnir, you can test this when I've got the Chaos Dreadnought & Land Raider ingame.
I have a task for you too, Minaithin2005, as well as Badgernun. Since you insist on helping, then PM me, both of you!
Badgernun, I have most of the Closer-to-codex latest stuff ingame, but this thing seems new.
Tell me about the content. Filefront is unaccessable again for some reason at my end.
Minaithnir2005 - May 10, 2006 11:24 PM (GMT)
PM you? (told you i was a newb)
Zany Reaper - May 11, 2006 04:09 PM (GMT)
Private messaging. Please do it!
BadgerNun - May 11, 2006 05:35 PM (GMT)
Stuff about it?
Are yes! Here we go...
New units in Firestorm:
Champion of Khorne
Champion of Nurgle
Randomized Space Marines
Better equipped Beserkers
Helmeted Force Commander
Randomized Space Marines
Better equipped Assault Marines
Better equipped Rhino
Better equipped Land Raider
Better equipped Hellhound
Better equipped Chimera
AI will not use new units, except for those only better equipped or randomized (or helmeted!). Game is not fully balanced, and some armies such as Chaos or the Space Marines have a distinct advantage.
To do list:
Next version, hopefully more Ork units, with better balance for them. Same for guard. New voices for Chaos units, perhaps Eldar? AI unlikely.
REMOVED - High squad cap for CSM and SM.
EDITED - Land Raiders no longer build in 2 seconds. You can have unlimited Land Raiders, if you can deal with the 4 vehicle cap it takes.
And also... Dark Crusade Home Page
Zany Reaper - May 11, 2006 06:28 PM (GMT)
Right, I've got most of the new stuff already tweaked & ingame.
Things we don't/wont have yet from Firestorm:
Helmeted Force Commander*
Randomized Space Marines*
Better equipped Land Raider*
* = not gonna bother with. Too insignificant & takes up 'unneccessary' disk space, making a bigger & longer download.
