AchromicWhite Posted January 20, 2016 Share Posted January 20, 2016 As many of you know, I've been thinking about/talking about, making an unofficial expansion for C&C95. Simply put; the time has come. This will include both single player missions and a rebalanced multiplayer. I will continue to make posts about each segment, (and may take a few days to fully complete) so please refrain from spamming this post with ideas. If you DO think you have a specific idea on something, then I WOULD like to hear it: SEND IT TO ME AS A PERSONAL MESSAGE. THIS POST: This post is about the general design of the Mod, not the specific stuff. This is important to get down before we go forward, and if you are looking to be a part of the mod team, then there will be a little bit of learning to be done before you join up. Just watch this thread, you'll soon understand. To do this, and do it right, the large job of making an ENTIRE expansion will need to be broken into smaller parts. Single Player: -Story: This is perhaps the most important part to begin with, as some of the missions will be heavily linked to the story. This means that we are looking for a story writer. -Missions: Obviously, we will be needing missions for our single player experience. They will consist of 2 major types. a.Missions that carry the story b.Missions that introduce the player to new units/structures/game concepts. That is, they'll either carry the story or act somewhat as a tutorial. Multiplayer: -New balance and new units: I'll talk about these both together and separately, as there's a LOT to be said. (PLEASE DON'T SPAM THIS THREAD WITH BALANCE IDEAS!). You may make a new thread for that, if you do so desire. -New Maps: To go with this beast of a project, we'll need some nice new multiplayer maps. They will have to be of a top standard, and more importantly, balanced for the NEW multiplayer. Which means that we'll have to somewhat be completing the balance side of this before we can properly get into the multiplayer mapping section of it. Other stuff: -New Terrain: There has been at least one new TD terrain pack made and it'd be nice to see more. If you have made a terrain pack and would like for it to be featured in the mod, please contact me. -New music: The expansion will have new music (correct me if I'm mistaken Nyer, but new music can be added to the list, yes?) -Video Cut Scenes: This one is not necessary, but if we can get a 3D artist to make us some pretty scenes, then we'll go ahead with making videos to kick you into the missions. PERHAPS even some live acting from some of our community in costumes in front of blue/green screen... we'll see. If anything gets cut, it'll probably be this area. I'd still like to see it. This means that we'll be looking for the following to complete the Mod team: -Programming (I can maybe do some of this myself, but will have to learn how to hack this) -Story Writer -Mission designers and makers -Balance designers -Balance testers -2D Graphical artists for new units/buildings and terrain -Competitive map designers/makers -Musical Composer -3D video designer/maker I CAN for sure and will personally help out with: -Story writing -Mission design (but not much with making, not beyond the mapping work, anyway) -2D art (to an extent) -balance design (very closely) -balance testing (I'd like to mostly watch other people test it, more than test it myself) -competitive map design/making Areas I have almost NO ability to help with, without learning some serious new skills: -Programming: I will need someone to help teach me some stuff... if no one says anything, I'm hitting up Nyer and Kilk (you two have been warned xD) -Mission -->MAKING<-- -Musical composer -3D video artist If you're interested in any of these jobs, please wait for me to do the full write up of what the job actually is, below in a following post (except programming). And then either message me or post in the thread. IMPORTANT!!! Once again: I will continue to make posts about each segment, (and may take a few days to fully complete) so please refrain from spamming this post with ideas. If you DO think you have a specific idea on something, then I WOULD like to hear it: SEND IT TO ME AS A PERSONAL MESSAGE. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
