Sure, but don't base it tooo heavily on my mod, otherwise it may as well be a mere update to my mod. You're welcome to use some models/textures/xmls/etc.

Sure thing, but I have very few units that fit WW1 style. The infantry, maybe... The rest depends on how picky you are at historical accuracy.

Omega's mod does not have much in the way of world war 1, though it could be interesting to see something world war 1 based

Good progress going on guys! Revamped the nuke so that it has a sweet looking missile and I will move it into a nuclear silo. Also, I finished modelling the Heli and Grenadier. To accompany the heli, I changed the order of the two air upgrades so only one is needed for the heli and the other two are both needed for the stealth bomber. I also modified the attack types so the heli is anti-personal and the stealth bomber is anti-building. The heli is also capible of attacking other air units. Another small fix was the change of the rpg trooper's anti air attack so that it was usable. I accidently put in the wrong ep value and it couldn't be used... :( Fixed now though!  :)

Anyway, work begins on the Humvee now.

PS: The Heli looks UBER awesome!

Not yet wyvern, when its all done I will. For now, I will play the publicy gimic and try to get you anxious.

More changes:
-New model for the Howitzer
-Humvee completed
-Work begun on Missile Silo

Still to do:
-Dock
-Battleship

Saved those for last because it is uncertain if they'll appear in anything more than scenarios for now (since the worker is unable to build the docks, though lua places it fine).

What could you do anyway? I'm almost done, and there's no denying that redoing the animations would be a royal pain without the blends...

Of course you can Gabbe. Though you're also welcome to look at the Glest Guide's xmls, since I used those as my base for military, and every now and then when I can't remember the exact syntax of something, those outlines are an amazing help.



Good news for everyone, I am almost ready to release!

All thats left to do is model the dock and then do a small bit of testing, then I can release the next version. Still won't be the "final" since GAE's support for water units is too lacking for me to actually put the dock and battleship in normal gameplay yet, I will release a few scenarios so far, but really do want to see water units a part of normal gameplay too, hopefully in the next version of GAE or something... :|

I finished the missile silo now, so using nukes is now a very real possibility (as is opponents using them, but not sure if they'll use them well). I also created two SA-WEET scenarios using timers that I found very fun. One is a king of the hill scenario where you must hold the hill for 10 minutes and the other you must defeat the foe before the 20 minute timer is up. In both, the speed adjusts based on ingame speed. 10 minutes is on normal, each second ticks slower on slower game speeds and faster on faster game speeds.

Both are tested and quite fun!  :D I'll get a screenshot and modify the first page of this thread as well as the glest guide's page (got it working again!).

QUESTION: Do you think we should upload to download.com too? After all, it is fully playable without any external applications (since GAE is included) and that may allow more downloads, and thus more publicy?

Fast? I guess... I didn't model EVERYTHING, so I can't take credit for that. The heli for an instance, is from UFO:AI. I found some pretty models under CC-BY-SA-NC (same license as mine) and checked with the authors, so all good.

List of changed units:
-Humvee
-Howitzer
-Grenadier
-Missile Silo* <--Epic nukes 8)
-Heli*
-Dock*
-Battleship*

*=New unit

A while ago I started making a kind of high poly futuristic battlecruiser model. I'm assuming that you already have a battleship model from what I've read, but just in case, I can give you the .blend for the one I half-made, and you can finish it and strip the poly's down. :)

Dunno... We'll see how it compares. Of course, mine is a bit high on the poly side too (I tried reducing it further, but it lost the battleship feeling...) at 2k. Not bad at all in my opinion.

I should mention in case silnarm is watching the 'bug' I've found with water units. The select (and that green circle showing hp, etc) is at the very bottom of the water, not on the surface where the unit is.

Sure, but I'm just going to release the entire mod. It's ready, but I can't upload until probably monday (back to school).

Also, I offered elsewhere on the forums to animate a few of the new units. :D

Can you pack me a 7z with those .blends, and then I'll animate them, and send them back?

Ah, yes, but it didn't occur that it was divorced. My applogies.

Wasn't that here? Anyway, there's not a whole lot, but I do have the grenadier, baton soldier, and perhaps a few others. Some don't need to be animated, like the howitzer or battleship, and others I animated very well (like the Heli. Simple, but epic and effective).

Why wouldn't you animate a Howitzer, I mean, it's gotta have a firing anim at least. ::)

The Battleship needs animations too, firing and standing(or rather sitting.....).

Alright, I can't say much, Teacher's on my back,  but heres the latest download. I compiled this on the fly, so I'll have to do the site and the first post tonight when I get home from the city...

Installer:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/mlcq9g

TGZ:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/4rvo2f

Sorry for the bad site, I can't get onto mediafire or many sites like that. First 5 google results were blocked! Still, my test shows that this one went quite fast, and it didn't need an account... :(
