Any Total Annihilation fans here? A Freespace TC for TA is in discussion...
Yep, Total Annihilation, the legendary wargame is still going strong. New mods, units, races and maps are still being made.
Even a few space TCs have been made and some are in development. For example a Babylon 5 TC is in early stages of  development.

In the PlanetAnnihilation forums there has been some talk of a Freespace total conversion for Total Annihilation. However, its only discussion, nothing has been made yet. If the project is to get off the ground, modders from both communities need to get together.

Heres a link to the Planet Annihilation Race forum.

There is a thread on the first page started by Kalevispetke. Thats me:) Its about Freespace 2. Please read it if you're interested and even post in it.

So, anyone interested?

What bugs were in TA? Apart from the crappyness of the 'advanced' units?

How about stupid pathfinding AI, ships that go round and round rather than towards their target, and something else.

It was still a great game though, but lets not start that TA v RedAlert argument, OK?

You mean SVG, I trust you're not talking about TAP.
If you do mean SVG, I agree, it is about time they got on with it, the last time I downloaded it, it was terrible. The weapons were invisible, the balance was FUBAR. for instance, the mothership was an Arcadia, the heavy cruiser was a Colossus. Now 6km long juggernaught emerging from the belly of a 1km long installation? Hmm...

TA is a great game..I'm already using a few third-party models from it for NTV (check sig)..if something like this was made I'd sure as heck play it..

Hard to see an Orion lumbering around, though. It'd be kind of impractical.

You could probably make a go at a SWTA approach, though.

I think it will use the same base than the mod Final Frontier. Its a space only.  If you own TA check it out!!! It kicks ass.

Its probably gonna be Final Frontier with FS ships if it someday gets off the ground.

You should also know that I'm no modder. I can do little FREDding and little TA mapping but thats all. I'm just a fan trying to get this project going:).

I'm glad that someone is actually interested in this.

If you want to learn TA modding I suggest that you go check the Estrella site.
www.tadesigners.com  
It is the ultimate TA modding site. You can find all kinds of extensive modding tutorials there, from mapping to unit making.

It should help you off the ground.

for example:on the left menu  Design Tools->Unit making->->Manuals->basic start for unit design

(Check the midi that you can play at the site(its under the menu on the left), it is awesome!!)

Forgive my ignorance, but how would an TA mod from FS look?

Yeah I go there pretty much every day now that TAU is down ( :( ) . I'll give unitmaking another try as soon as I get to my home computer (3 days or so)
