But I think your ideas are just great for mods coming after ! Don't get me wrong
I've added a 16th Century mod option in the poll.
But again, unless someone like Privateer doesn't already form a team or something, I'm only going to tag along and not actually lead the project myself.
I'm really ashamed I hope you will change your mind
I could probably whip something up in just one day but it wouldn't be a proper mod.
For a grander project again, you will need more people than just me and whoever else, it's not as simple as it seems.
I know we are more than likely a year or two away, but a continuation of C2 is my ultimate hope.
That is why I am still here.
Scifi, space era or Fantasy, more like Dominions 4 from Illwinter, not Tolkienish.
So i voted 40K by default
Nothing between 10th and 20th centuries
I would be very interested in an American Conquest II mod, as long as the period is properly studied and factions have the correct national uniforms and kinds of troops. Things like the French having white uniforms and such
French having white uniforms? The French had a bicorn hats and blue uniforms in American Conquest as far as I remember, Austrians (which were not featured in AC) had white uniforms historically.
Unless you can show me a picture or something I really have no idea what you're talking about to be honest.
And yes, realism will be our number one factor IF we start work on an AC2 mod.
Hi, can I ask you a thing?
Are you working on this? Or is this completely stale.
Two mods would be wonderful if correctly done : American conquest 2 mod with tons of animals, real uniforms and Indian nations, and American conquest combat system. And cossack 2 mod with unit formations, nations and combat system from this amazing game. Then you will surely be successful as it is gonna be the two old games but with better graphics, not like Cossack 3 and everybody who is playing the originals would by the game for the mods and leave the old games... but don't fail, take your time modders, we prefer quality to quantity.
I would suggest that people do not think in terms of pre-existing games but in terms of pre-existing good features in those games. I can think of good features (and bad features) in C1, AC, DN, C2 and also in some of the mods of these. I have played most of these games and their mods, if just a little bit in some cases. Think of the good features across all games, think of how those good features could be integrated into one realistic and playable game of your chosen era. Don't attempt a mod that crosses too many eras. I remember an RTS game that started stone age and could end up in the space age. It was a brave attempt and it worked well in some ways. But to progress through too many eras means intervening eras do not get a full treatment. It starts to feel more than a little absurd to go from stone age to space age in half an hour.
Still need more tools and people.
Of course an AC2 mod would also be an improvement over the old game, not just a remake. Wooden Palisade walls and a market for all European nations are one of the additions I would like to make.
And call me biased but I cannot think of any bad features AC had, only missing ones.
I think friendly fire from buildings was the only terrible think AC featured, but it was fixed easily enough with a script change. Great game all round.
I can think of bad features for AC. Some of these are subjective judgements but I think some are objective too.
(1) I didn't like the graphical style. Subjective.
(2) Buildings were too big for land terrain. This is objective and relative. Either buildings are too big or terrain features are too cramped... or both.
(3) Colors were very bad for a person with red-green colour blindness. Objective if you are R-G colour blind like me.
(4) Garrisoning effects were excessive especially of Indian tents. A garrisoned tent.... puh-lease! Bullets and bayonets go through tents you know.
Agreed, btw mind telling me of your fix for it?
That's really subjective and up to the individual person preference, I never had issues with any of these, on the contrary, I liked some of them. I'd go into detail but I'm on my phone.
