Sea Battles
« on: May 28, 2011, 05:26:43 PM »
I have now decided to keep the community up together with what we are doing, im going to tell you what we are working on for our next big them.

We are working bringing sea battles to the battle map. This will bring the sea faring nations like carthage and illyria, will become important nations. This will probably be the last major break through for the rtw engine.

How were gonna do it is retexture floor so its like sea, then with a model of the boat we can have animations for oars and sails, then to implement the battle map on the campiagn. We will make it a custon battle first to make it easire too implement so when its finally implemented it will have most of the fixes already done. As i leave you here is a picture of one ship. please leave comments. if i dont reply thats because im away for a wk.

Thanks for your comments. In theory it will only b as bugy as the battlefield. In theory terms it's not to hard, but carrying out the theory will be hard.

We shall release any updates on this subject as soon as we can as this will be quite a break through area.
Were now already progressing with a delegated ship leader and everything being highlighted

This could be pretty big; it's a pity you won't be able to keep the animated water, but hopefully it'll work fine.  :)

Now that's an interesting project ... Maybe the same thing could be done in MTW2 engine...

Good luck !

Well its still all in development at the moment but it may be going with thinking its an elephant and then making the water as if it is a massive river were you cross

This sounds like a pro dev team, you know, dedicating members to specific chores and stuff...

Or I haven't modded enough
