[MOD] Horizon Initiative Fleet

Postby Horizon » Mon Apr 07, 2014 2:04 pm

Horizon Initiative Fleet

Welcome to the Horizon Initiatives Fleet Catalog!

This is a WIP modification in its first Phase.

Phase 1

The addition and construction of new ships to be added.

Taken from a project that I abandoned, some of these
ships will be used and added to the mod.

Balance is still an issue, and the first 2 i've made are
not balanced at all. I will work on it in time, meanwhile,
just enjoy the OP ships.

Phase 2

In this phase, I will fix any issues that have occurred in Phase 1,
while adding new weapons to the game. I'm considering doing an
overhaul as well, to go along with the ships.

Phase 3

The most tedious of all, I will combine the aspects of several mods
and modify dialogue, species, and events to add more lore toward
the mods universe.

Phase Final

In the final phase, the mod will be patched to be as perfect as possible
in terms of balance, and bugs. In the final phase, several experimental
mod ideas will be implemented. This phase may be scrapped later in the
process.

As you can see, this is a rather ambitious mod. Please do leave feedback
so that I may improve it. Thank you for your time.

Downloads

Currently, there are two ships that have been added.

Interesting. Sorry to poke around, but are you the Reynard who made these ships?
I found the ship images here, too...

The least you could do is tell me it sucks or something.

Sorry, wanted to post before but did not have the time. Your mod does not suck at all, it actually looks really great so far! There are some big total conversation announcements now and then, but few have so much stuff to show off allrady, so over all this looks really promising.

Maybe you can give some more information. I'm not sure if this will be a player ship mod or a total enemy conversion or both. I'd also like to know how it will tie in with regular FTL and to which extend you plan modifying events and such.

Good luck and keep up the great work! :)

Thank you for the response and the support!

I originally wanted this to be an Overhaul mod, but I know how I oft give up on projects that are too ambitious, so I thought to start off with several player ships first.

Eventually, all the current ships will be replaced with custom ones.

I'll see how it takes from there, I tend to lose track when I overplan.
But whats likely to come:

-Drone Overhaul
-Weapons Overhaul
-Enemy Overhaul
-Background Modification and possibly Music Modification
-Event/Story Modification
-Boss Modification. (Come to think of it, i'll do this one earlier on.)

The idea behind this is to present a fictional universe i've long looked for
a medium to express, the universe of Horizon. Hopefully it comes to fruition.

For now, its just a ship modification.
I'll release an update soon too.

Again, thanks for the reply and support!

I quite like this mod, honestly. I'm quite tied up at the moment, but I'm here if you need any tips.

Thanks for the offer of help!
I'm still learning how to mod, and in time I will be
able to make this mod better, and add more content to
it. I'll be sure to ask if I run into any issues. :)

I didn't download it because I am not sure how mods react to the new update to well to know if it'll just be a crash or mess up something.

But I do say so myself that those ship graphics look LOVELY.

Some room images stretched and it seems 1 ship is as well but nothing that a little editing can't fix.

I understand.

One issue was that the room graphics stretched on their own whenever I re-loaded it.
Also, I had to stretch one of the ships to make it the right size, but i'm considering
reworking it.
