BORG: Incursion Endgame (A1 project)

Post by MajorPayne » Mon Jun 07, 2010 3:10 am

Yes. You read the title right. I am back to Armada 1 but what was it that made me come back to a game over 10 years old you may ask??

Back around 2005 I released a model of the Tolstoy class. After having come across the model I had a good look over it and quite frankly it was rubbish. Anyway, after getting permission I pieced together some make shift and, what I consider, better textures and produced a minimod for Armada 2. As almost everyone will know I always convert to Armada 1 format so needed the SOD editor installed. I then decided to have a quick play on the first couple of federation missions and I had forgotten how much better the gameplay is compared to Armada 2. Anyway. This got me thinking to produce a mod to simply replace ALL the ingame models and add perhaps a handful of additional ships. Progress is going well seeing as I'm taking many of the ships from my BIVR project and so far I'm up to testing the third side. Anyway, when theres more information and I get some screenies sorted out I'll post further, but this is just more of an introduction posting.

Awesome news. I always look forward to seeing your work, especially since you still release stuff for A1.

Sounds wonderful! Was the origianl mod the Borg Incursion? I ask because I wanted to play it in order to get familiar with what you will be improving.

BI1 is still available from this website but thats about the only place. Conpared to this one the models from the original are of fairly poor quality and it shows.

Anyway. A quick update. Three sides units are ingame and functioning as expected. The Romulans are in the process of being overhauled and whilst for the most part the side remains the same there is one change to the structure layout. For those wanting to see images etc.etc. fear not. All will be revealed fairly soon.
