Chasm - a techtree by Ishmaru
« on: 23 April 2019, 20:51:48 »
Ishmaru asked me to have a look at a mod he worked on some years ago, one that was never released. It needed a little clean-up, which I've done the minimum to get the mod working. The graphics and models are very nice. It's somewhat similar to the Assault Command mod (available in the mod center).

This one, Chasm, isn't in the mod center yet. It's difficult to predict what will happen with it yet. The download I've prepared from Ishmaru's work is definitely playable.

Download chasm_A1.7z

The git repo for it is at https://github.com/Ishmaru/Chasm-Game but it's current set to Private. I'll ask Ishmaru to set it to public to help make opportunities to contribute and post feedback easier.

Andy seems you were proclaimed 'the guy who revives almost dead factions'  :O it is good! thanks for your efforts!  :thumbup:

I am not into futuristic stuff but I might give it a try if you need feedbacks and we can put it in the mod center :thumbup:

You're welcome! Thanks for your continuing participation and willingness to test.

I have no plans to work on this right now but of course I'll post here if there's any new info.

Thanks for making a public repo. I find Ishmaru's style too cartoonish for my taste, but his mods are amazing and well crafted. I will definitively try this out and report issues  :thumbup:

Nice! Ishmaru's factions are some of the best MegaGlest artwork out there. Really glad you've got this working!  Hopefully we can test it sometime.... :thumbup: ;D

First feedback:
None of the 3 factions has a screenshot when you select them.

Thank you to @andy_5995 for helping finally releasing this!

Chasm was actually started back for Vanilla Glest long before I started Annex, but back then the high polycounts made it difficult to run on older machines (this was like what 8+ years ago so imaging dated machines even for 2010). So this was on put on indefinite hold. It was originally supposed to be another standalone game like Annex and Terra, but I never had the time to make the maps and scenarios, so it just sat there. So it's wonderful to actually share the game.

Note: I actually didn't realize that 3rd faction "Nulyra" was still in the game. "Nulyra" was an experiment with discarded models to see if I could make another faction, but they are by far incomplete (especially without an airship navy), and much smaller than "Alandia" nad "Cruix". It's fine if anyone wants them to stay as is or if anyone wants to fill in the blanks to make a complete faction, or just remove them I'll leave it up to the community.

Very cool screenshots Ishmaru! Do you have any unfinished model for "Nulyra" that maybe you could post if someone wants to finish?

I didn't really even make any for "Nulyra" to begin with they are all old, unused models (and some reskins) from the other two.
