  FX Mod: Subfactions and More - Mods
  Posted by: Enceladus1 on 08-26-2010 @ 12:16 - Source: Filo
This News Item has been viewed 7,402 times


Welcome to the third and last big update before the release of FX Mod. A lot has changed in the mod since the last time. We've paid attention mostly to gameplay enhancements, though we didn't forget about graphical sweetness.

But let's get to the point.

The Subfactions

What is this all about?
Subfaction system in skirmish gives you choice of 3 subfactions (3 for space, 3 for land), each of them grants you an access to a different set of upgrades and bonus units. So let's say if you choose 501st Legion for the Empire, you get unique infantry upgrades and units specific for that subfaction (while the basic imperial units stay without change).


How does it work?
At the start, you get either a buildpad (land) or a satellite (space). Each has got 3 build options - by choosing one, you choose a subfaction. Once the object is built, it becomes the place where you can buy all the upgrades and unit researches related to the subfaction. Simple? Yep.

Here's the complete list of subfactions and upgrades.
Space

Land

If you've got any questions, feel free to ask.

Other stuff
I didn't have time to take any nice in-game pics so I'll be adding them successively within the next days. So far I can show you some of the new planets skins (ALO viewer shots):



Until the next time,
Filo

Nice, the skirmish options remind me a lot of Kane's Wrath. I'm looking forward to seeing it implemented in a EaW mod, great job guys!

Yeah it reminds of Kane's wrath. I see some promising tactical possibilities.

We got told that they seem a little weak in comparison to the other Factions. We've got a 3-tiered Upgrade and new unit for them to unlock in future versions. But they will not be in the next release.
