[MOD][WIP]The Arcadian War - Collaboration Mod
Posted: Sun May 11, 2014 9:08 am
Welcome to The Arcadian War collaboration mod. It will be made by mod developer R4V3-0N, and of course me. The Arcadian War mod is a complete game overhaul that will feature a entirely new story line, new enemies, weapons, events, sectors ships and a custom game soundtrack. This mod has been planned for months and with the coming release of Superliminal 2 we have decided to begin development. This mod will be developed over a course of a few months hopefully, a ton of work is going to go into this project.
Years before the rebellion, The Federation entered a conflict with another inter-galactic superpower... The Arcadian Empire. As there control grew and they both began to prosper, closer they grew. Still conscious of each others existence they did not feel the need to worry about war. They traded, they grew. They prospered. But there territory continued to grow closer for decades until they were linked together by boarder. They could continue to progress outwards in to the unknown... Or push towards each others resource rich territories.
New leaders came to power and months before shots were fired cruisers were lined up at the boarder. When war was declared the Arcadian's advanced weaponry metaphorically dug a hole into Federation Territory. But no long after the Federation began to hold the line and eventually push back with the placements of minefields, commission of planetary artillery and deployment of the new Vindicator Artillery Beam MKI. War raged for months on and the boarders were pushed back to there original positions and the Federation advance was halted by the Arcadian's new Starfury-Class Battlecruisers. The war has been at a stalemate for months and the area has become known as the 'Space Trench'.
As the war began to take an ugly turn desperate measures have been taken by both sides. That is why you are here, The Arcadians have given you there most advanced cruiser and your mission is to break the line. The war will end soon one way or another. The final battle will decide the fate of the galaxy.
What is the Arcadian War?
Lore In The Arcadian War you will play on the Arcadians side and the Federation will be your enemy. It is stated that this mod takes place years before the rebellion and the following events spark the rebellion. Say 50 years before the rebellion takes place in the canon story of 'FTL: Faster Than Light' war break out between these galactic superpowers at the peak of there civilization rather than the Federation being on the run and being overtaken by the Rebels this brings two empires to total war.
============== AW Components ==============
Not quite as many as Captains Edition has to offer but it will be far from vanilla featuring +50 new events
Featuring much more in depth content in the war less focused on the single goal and rather being a soldier in an army.
The mod will have more in-depth lore and there well be more quests and more options to get into the rest of the war rather than travel on your own until you get to sector 8. Quests may even last for entire sectors offering high scrap rewards, new weapons, etc. Made to feel like your being deployed in every battle.
The Arcadian War offers loads of new weapons to help you along in your mission to defeat the Federation.
Considering the Federation never really had a fighter and many rebel class ships don't even exist in The Arcadian War timeline, ships must be converted and revamped with new weapons , hulls and more to keep the game with its original feel.
New enemies must be made for new factions, Federation classes up to par with there large military. Arcadian ships included to fit.
Random boss battles against Federation cruisers in every sectors designed to be much tougher than your average fleet.
Respective sectors will be switched around (Except mantis) ie. Engi and Zoltan will become hostile sectors and Federation sectors will be added Extremely dangerous. New sectors will also be added.
Custom soundtrack with an additional 28 songs to fit the regular FTL soundtrack.
