seaQuest mod poll (the 4th side)

I've been considering what to do with the fourth race slot for seaQuest Armada.

The original plan was to do four Confederations each with seperate tech trees that the player would then choose at the beginning of the game.

Four seperate AIs would be done that you the user would have to swap out for before each game to have the computer play as a different Confederation. All bases would be held common but if you choose Russia you would not be able to build NorPac subs.

This is however going to be a lot of work and will delay overall completion by months at least.

I have therefore been considering restricting it to one Confed (I'm personally leaning toward the NorSea or maybe Russia

First of all, I'm thrilled to know that the mod is still going :).

As I see, and I could easily be wrong, having all four confederations will not necessarily diversify game-play. If I could suggest: will it make sense to have all four confederations in one race with either the NorSea or Russia as the "base"?

You'll have mostly NorSea units plus an "inter-confederations" yard which will allow you to build select NORPAC, Russian and East Asian units.

Perhaps you'd have to research (purchase) designs from the other confederations before you can build those units.

Just my two cents

I see where you are going with that, it certainly defeats the spirit of my original intent but may be the way I'll eventually go.

I may keep some of these units around (particular Russian and US subs) as map units under the theme of the 20th Century Cold War

Good thoughts MrV.

Unfortunately I'm biased on this.

I just got to vote for NorSea Confederation. I live in it and we do have some great subs.

Whatever you choose, Rod. Keep it goin'!

I would recommend theys for the games races.

UEO - United Earth Oceans Organization
MACRONESIA - Australian Alliance
Asia - Chodi Confederacy
UKE - European Confederation Middle Eastern Alliance

So Jared, do you think I'm stupid?

Its called seaQuest Armada, do you really think the UEO isn't already in the mod? Or that I forgot about Macronesia?

This poll was about the 4th race. The one I couldn't decide on. Believe me the UEO is already in the mod and so are the Macs and the Choadai.
