Crimson Maidens Addon Faction
« on: 16 November 2014, 00:07:29 »

Crimson Maidens



For fun I put together is faction using mostly re-skinned models from the other factions with some unused models. The theme is more of mecha influenced units, with of course female infantry.  This faction is focused on infantry supported by long range combat vehicles. They lack in any heavily armored vehicles which can make prolonged battles difficult, however they do have numerous upgrades for their infantry, and vehicles. Currently they have a hero unit, Falcon but currently no super weapons.

Story



With an increasing global conflict over crystal energy, leads to unrest and civil war in the areas of the world not governed by the three main powers (Alliance, Republic, and Shadow) of the world. Rebels, Militias, and Gorilla factions, secretly backed by the great powers, are growing world wide. No where is this more prevalent than in the Southern Wastelands. Dozens of tribes in the area waged savage war over territory disputes. In the chaos rose the Crimson Maidens, who fight to end the conflict in the Southern Wastelands. The Maidens are a female only army consisting of many victiums of the war, from those who lost their family, to angry rebels, all the way to elite military defectors who are tired of fighting for someone else's gain. For years the maidens used bribes and secret support from all world powers to amass a military large enough, and advanced enough to dissuade any military action in the region. Their ultimate goal is to end the world powers influence in the region using the very equipment that they sold to them.

I always forgot to post that this mod has some problems in linux.
As usual case sensitivity problems:  upcase letters in models and textures  like  xxx.G3D   or *Map*.jpg .

Beside of this, nice mod :D.

I combined them with astromarines in one techtree. maybe you can provide a combined techtree too ? ( I know astro marines was not made by you, but its more fun to play them all in one techtree  :) )

Yes, this is a nice addition, although the unit (especially the hero) seems limited in skill.

Another thing is that this mod will crash on Linux because linux is case senisitive.  I can fix the xml or rename the file, but now the texture for APC and siegn rocket is gone, the units are all white.  If only I know which texture the G3D is looking for...

The textures have the same problem, upcase letters in file names.
Btw to find out which texture a g3d wants, just open it in an editor and look int o the binary blob you will find it without problems. But in this case its easier to simply convert vereything you find to lower case.

I don't know why I haven't seen those posts earlier.

Those problems were fixed a lot of time ago just it wasn't officially released yet, then fixing it again by everyone doesn't make big sense.

Direct link (which for sure will be dead after next release) for devel status:
https://bitbucket.org/annexctw/annex-addons/downloads/crimson_maidens_fixed.zip
... but of course it is for sure incompatible with released version then don't try mix it in the multi-player.
