ANNOUNCEMENT: End War
END WAR


Image created by Councilor

  "Another 32 years have passed since the Shivans vanished once more, but the scar left by the Second Shivan Incursion still haunts us during the night. It looks at both Terrans and Vasudans from afar, a grim reminder of the power of the Great Destroyers.

  The horrors of the Second Shivan Incursion, however, has done us more good than bad, it seems, for we have found a way home. But that wasn't all. With the death of Capella, so fell the evil from within us.

  Now with the bonds between our species growing stronger with each passing moment, and the reunion with our long lost ancestral home, Sol, we can finally begin dreaming of a better future. We will do so no matter the cost, because now, we will fight for the last time to ensure the eternal existence of our species. We will begin the last struggle for survival. We will start our final fight.

  The End War will begin soon."


Author's comments:
This is it, everyone. This is that secret mod I've been talking about. The End War. I have been working on this for some time now. Had ideas of this for a much longer time though.

Development report 1:
Quite a few missions are already planned. Interface is in the works. Most of the new next-generation fleets are in-game already aswell. All of the new weapons are in-game aswell, and just need a bit of tweaking.

Screenshots:
What's a mod without screenies? Some of you already saw some screenshots in the 'Celebration of FreeSpace' thread. However, since my PC is really old, I'm afraid I cannot make a lot of new screenshots quickly. So you'll have to be satisfied with these for now :) .

Interface and other art by Councilor:
You can see his Deviantart profile HERE
Other art for the mod, by him, can also be seen HERE

Closing words:
Ok, first of all, don't worry of the Ancient-Shivan War. It's just going slower than usuall from the lack of time and motivation. So motivate me, and I'll find more time for it ( I hope ).
Secondly, keep watching these forums for updates. I have another thing planned to show for you. All you have to do is be patient ;)
Lastly, I want your comments.

Well, that is all for now. I hope you enjoyed this modest announcement of my modification for FreeSpace2 SCP. :)

Is the HTL Sath in-game or only for cutscenes?

It's also roughly similar to ED, BP, INF and MT... :nervous:

I'm working on the lower poly version of that sath, hopefully it will be in-game.

With INF? How? Sol and the GTVA are at each others throats. There was no peaceful reunion.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: End War
If you call that similar, then all campaigns are similar. They all have ships and weaponz!!! :eek2: :eek2:


BP has Earth destroyed by the Lucifer. No happy reunion.
INF has a war between Sol and GTVA.
ED has something similar IIRC.

Heck, this is the only campaign that I can think off the top of my head (excluding mine) in which Earth and GTVA had a peaceful, happy reunion.

Yeah! They all ripped off INF R1! Even the ones that came before it!

I wouldn't call my planned handling of this exactly peaceful, but not because of anything Earth or the GTVA is doing to each other.

I guess it will if it succeeds like Blue Planet. :)

 
Sounds like this will be like the Centuar Project, except that they'll actually have the guts to take the fight to the enemy. :D

I would love it if you'd release both a Cutscene-quality and a game-quality version of the Sath.
