Good to see this back I was honestly slowly converting your mod for Dark Avatar into GalCiv 3... Anyways I know this is going to be a lot of work since you put a lot of quality in your last mod for GalCiv2. I know your working on 9 races right now, but are you going to be making 25 races as you did for Dark Avatar? I was really a fan of your Galactic Confederacy and its shipstyles. So I was wondering if any of the old races from your mod pack for Dark Avatar will be making a return too. I see the Pirates are.
Hey there! Thanks for remembering the good ol days! To be honest, its been ages since I've even seen my old designs... after this nine, not a bad idea to check them out for some inspiration lol. As for the plan... I'm just starting with 9 major races. Then I hope to add minor races, and even more portraits, and possibly circle back to the original 9 and add starbases and drones (right now I'm just using my tiny hulls as the drone model as stand ins).
With that done, I'll probably work on batches of 3 major races at a time, until I die.
Sweet! Nice work Gauntlet03.
How do you get the fighters to attach to the bigger vessels. Can they fly off / re - dock? Did you load them in first then built the capital off of it?
I make the fighter, then make it into one grouped component, and then add that to a in-progress capital ship. Flying off and docking isn't really possible, you could try to get something that would fly off and up, but it would then reverse right back down to land... which would be too awkward looking to be worth it. There is also no way to pause a animation, so I can't add a 5 second pause between animation cycles.
Thanks all. Your continuing praise feeds me... delicious, delicious praise. I'm wrapping up another set at this moment, and with luck will post tomorrow!
