Here is our FAQ Section, I will be constantly updateing this section as often as required. If you have a question have a look here before posting it on the boards.
-What is Gundam Legacy?
Gundam Legacy is a Gundam Seed Mod for "Star Wars Empire at War" RTS Game, The Alamo engine used by empire at war features both Ground and space combat on one engine. This makes it perfect for the Gundam genre.
-When will Gundam Legacy be released?
It was always our goal to have a playable release by Fall 2006, even if it is only a space skermish Beta test version. The next release is going to be more extensive and more "Polished" and is hopefully going to make it out sometime late summer 2007 (HOPEFULLY!).
-Will there be suits from Gundam Seed Destiny?
Yes, first the team will work on the C.E. 71 era. Once that is done we should have a good base to build on for further units and mobile suits. There is also some plans for some of the MSV suits but nothing is confermed at this time.
-What kind of tech levels are there?
There will be five distinct levels: CE.70 Early Seed, CE.71 Late Seed, CE.72 Post Seed, CE.73 Early Destiny, CE.73-74 Late Destiny. CE standing for Cosmic Era which is the Gundam Seed universe timeline.
-ORB won't be a playable side in early releases?
No, Through Seed and Destiny the EAF have at least 13 different mobile weapons, Zaft has around 19, and Orb would have 2 or 3. So the decision was made early on that they would be in the game as a neutral side, this would not only help balancing but make the game more true to the show. There will be missions where you have access to Orbs units and heroes, and they may apear in skirmishes similar to the pirates in EAW.
-What sides will be in the Game?
To begin with there will be Earth Alliance Forces and Zaft as playable sides, also with the release of "Forces of Coruption" Orb will be in the game eventually but not origionaly as a playable side.
-Will there be Heros like Freedom, and Destiny?
Yes both suits will be included, as well as any others that you can think of. Not to mention the Thirteen new characters developed for the origional storyline.
-Will there be larger units like Land Battleships, and the X-1 Destroy?
Yes, and Yes. We also have some interesting idea's instore for both.
-Will the Meteor Units be present in the mod?
At the moment it is in the game plan to include the meteors in some fashion.
-Will you have doomsday weapons like Genesis?
Well I think that the big guns are a must have knowing the Gundam Seed Universe. Although not much thought has been put into how they will function just yet, there are plans for includeing all the doomsday weapons in Gundam Seed Legacy.
-What about the Galactic Conquest map, How will it work?
At the moment it is still in development, however there are 12 - 13 Plant Colony locations with numerous other locations both on Earth and in space.
-Will there be single player missions, or just multiplayer?
Both, The multiplayer should come first but there are already solid plans for a single player mission mode spanning the entire SEED series.
-What about Hero clashes?
We are looking into doing some fun things with the hero clashes, but for now Its not a top priority.
-How will mobile suits work/move in space combat? Will they be like tie fighters?
In space we are looking into ground like animations (move, shoot, idle) but it remains to be seen how extensive it will be. It will definantly not be just like tie fighters though.
-What kinds of ground locations or terrain will there be?
Well there hasnt been a whole lot of map makeing yet, the team has talked about what kind of locations there should be: Space, Jungle, Snow, Urban, Desert, Naval*, and Luner.
*-Will there be Naval battles?
There is a system layed out in theory but wether it will happen will be up to the amount of time we have.
-What about toggleing weapons on units, mobile suits carrying two different weapons?
We are also looking into this at the moment, we are also looking into haveing mobile suits haveing a melee weapon option too.
Thats all for now, If there are more suggestions post below and I will add them.
