Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
I'm curious. If I were to start a project to bring Wings of Dawn into multiplayer, would anyone be interested in joining or at the very least contributing something to it? Because I do feel like I want to show the Ray III E is master fighter. It's my hope in this is to have every race in WoD be playable for multi except for Cyrvans and Aleyurians (who both are ridiculously overpowered, meanwhile the Hertak fighters only need to have a reduction in hitpoints to be balanced).

But, yeah, who would want to give it a go?

Totally not in response to WiH multiplayer project!

UPDATE:

https://subversion.assembla.com/svn/wod-multi/trunk

Okay, so here's the svn link for the WoD multiplayer project. It's a bit of a WIP, and the balance is very questionable still. Comes with 5 Dogfight missions and one TvT mission.

This project is over. No more.

I'm all for it.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Would be weird but yes, I would test too.

I wouldn't mind testing some WoD multiplayer.
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
Cyrvans would most likely have better balance in WoD2.
Right now, they only have one ship.

 
Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
That doesn't matter when that one ship can turn on a dime, outrun anything else, regenerate hitpoints, and carry more firepower than a Ray-W.

Its balanced if you make it have to fly out of an exploding Hertak Flagship every time it respawns during a dogfight.

I want to be in a Nordera fighter.

No, really... that's not a good idea, but I'm all in for some WoD multi sometime.

Depends if you don't have targeting if you're in a Nordera ship.

The furangle are supposed to be overpoewred, too in WOD2. And the cordi are propably underpowered.

The two Fura'ngle fighters in WoD aren't really all that powerful, but rather are quite normal in terms of firepower.

Wings of Dawn 2, on the other hand....  :shaking:

Right now, I've got the tables set up (I haven't really made many changes, mainly giving the Nordera a minor speed buff weapons buff and giving the Ravager a major hitpoints nerf and a small weapons buff.), I'm just making some test missions right now for Dogfight and TvT. I also seemed to have hit the weapons limit when making D variants for all the guns. =/

Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
Since you have to make changes to the ships, why not make it a seperate mod folder that references the original WoD folder and overwrites the weapons?
That way you could change the ships and weapons without interfering with campaign balance, since the original files stay untouched.

Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
That's how the WiH multi package works and it is excellent. I suggest doing just that (and I believe AoD is planning to.)

Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
But if he does it that way, why is there a need to create D-variants of weapons in the first place?

Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
So you can have co-op missions with the singleplayer balance and dogfight missions with the D variant.

Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
Okay, good argument. It's been too long since I played FS2 online.

And you run into this cap even when not "D-ing" the weapons of the Aedesians and Cyrvans? Any chance this cap can be enlarged or even removed by the SCP people?

Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
Yes, I'm using modular tables and have it as its own mod.

I think I found (possibly) the real issue now. I was dumb and forgot an $end_multitext at the end of one of the weapon descriptions and it parsed the whole table below it (or at least tried.). Now, I'm going to try doing it all over again *sigh*. Thankfully, I only yoinked my own multiplayer test missions from another mod  finished just the Dogfight missions.

To be honest, though, I don't really want to do Coop missions, but I have made it in a way that if someone wants to make a coop mission, they can.

Re: Wings of Dawn Multiplayer?
Wait, maybe you can include Cyrvans by seriously nerfing their weapons in Dogfights.
Afterall, that's what -D variants are for.
They could have superior agility and speed, but all their weapon would be peashooters in dogfight.

Wait, so you didn't hit the weapon limit, but just screwed up? :lol:
Still a good idea to only "fix" what's actually broken.

Just make them like 40k's Space Elves and give the weapons crappy range and the fighters flimsy hulls.
