Hi :).
I'm making a japanese faction for glest.
It is intended for work on both Glest Advanced Engine or Megaglest.
Currently this mod works properly only in Megaglest.
It is magitech and megapack compatible.

The mod I'm currently working is based on historical Late 15~ Early 17th century japan.
At the time japan was under a civil war and the era was known for "SENGOKU JIDAI(era of warring states) ".
large variety of units will be included in this mod, along with many japanese traditional style buildings.

Minimod of Japanese
Currently Kiko is working for making minimod for GAE based on Japanese faction.
The mod focuses on more minor villagers/bandits battles, also with some rollicksome flavors inspired by famous Kurosawa films and some Japanese "JIDAIGEKI" cinemas such as "Yojimbo", "Seven Samurai", "Zatoichi".
The thread of the minimod:
Fancy testing a GAE Ninja mod?

Oh wow, those buildings are awesome. :thumbup:  The command icons are going to be a pain for those of us who don't read Japanese, though.  Aside from that, I'll be looking forward to this.

It's good time for you to learn our Kanjis! ;D
btw these command icons shown in screenshots are temporary uses.
personally i prefer these simple character icons though,if there are many concerns about it,I'll think of make symbolic icons for Non-Kanji using players.thx.

when you said "Japan," i was thinking 4Chan and random crap...thank you for making historical Japan.
lol. those goblins are spreading all over the internet.I feel sorry for that.

Very nice! Though I share John's concerns regarding the command icons.
as i wrote to john above,I'll make a symbolic icons for people who has no time for learn kanjis. thx.

thx.I don't know how to edit a wiki well,but I'll try after i made a decent progress of this mod.

The buildings look very nice indeed. Can't wait to play as Shogun.
I had no 3D modeling experiences till i work with this mod,so i'm struggling to make sophisticated 3D models.but I'll try hard live up to your expectation.thx.

Maybe, but I wonder if it will be too great for the megapack :/  :O joking...
Hmm, the megapack would need tons of balancing...also since there are other factions that might be in the megapack in the future...

Very good! I think the buildings are very well done but the humans look kind of squarish from the shots. Also why don't you just have a preview of the unit on the icon? just like tech?

Keep up he good work!  :)

I'm glad to see many replies on this topic.thx guys! :D

I have add a bit changes to main castle building's texture and model.now it looks slightly better than which shown in screenshots of a first post.

In fact it's a one of my favorite models i have made so far :O.

maybe you can ask for it to be added to the megapack when its done!

It would be great!all factions in megapack are finely made.I have learned a lot from them.I do not sure i can create a fine one which can compete with them though.

This is really cool, awesome work! how long have you been working on it?

Thx,I've been working on this mod about half a year in total.which includes time to learning how to edit xmls and learning 3D modelings.

Very good! I think the buildings are very well done but the humans look kind of squarish from the shots. Also why don't you just have a preview of the unit on the icon? just like tech?

Keep up he good work!  :)
Thx.to me,modelling human bodies is more challenging than modelling buildings :dead:.but it wouldn't be serious matter when look at them in longshot.


This is a close-up of Ashigaru_spearman unit model.I have made 5units(Ashigaru,Archer,Arquebuser,Swordsman,Cannon crews) based on this model.

about a unit preview,I'm going to upload tech-tree plan image before long.hold on ;)

Wow, this looks fantastic Hagekura! Welcome to the Glest Board! We are happy to see your first contribution to Glest to have such quality!

You say this is your first time modeling? You must learn amazing fast, because those units look fantastic! The textures are gorgeous and everything looks realistic and well made. A very good job.

Thx,I've been working on this mod about half a year in total.which includes time to learning how to edit xmls and learning 3D modelings.
Great work learning. It's rare to see people jump right into a quality mod creation. I think this mod has potential, and can't wait to see more of it.
Edit the MegaGlest wiki: http://docs.megaglest.org/

Comprehensive documentation is our goal. Help us reach it!

Thank you sir.to learn modding glest was not so difficult for me,thanks to this game's great modability and a lot of kind tutorials on youtube and wiki and websites.I was also greatly helped by many forerunner mods especially factions in megapack and ElimiNator's vbros packs.I could learn a lot from them.
