We (the mod team) have come to a conclusion, that Empire at War isnt that suitable for a 40k mod, well some parts aren't, the bit with the land and space combat in one package would have been great to have in a 40k mod but we feel like everything else that's needed for us to make a great mod is missing, therefore we've decided to shift over to Command and Conquer 3: The Tiberium Wars, which is using the same engine as Only War 1 does, but has been upgraded many several times, this move will also probably be good for the coding side of the mod as we're used to the kind of set-up of files and code that the engine uses.

We will still have space and land battles, they may just not be like they are in empire at war.
In other news, we've decided to make the Ork faction for OW1 a playable faction, so keep your eyes open for updates soon.

Best idea I've heard all day.

I really didn't think that EaW was that great a game.

Still stand by keeping your ideas small and building on them. Its way too easy to come up with a HUGE list of factions and units in the concept phase, maybe start off with CNC3 with the unit lists you have from OW1 and then you can drop in improved units as you get them finished, that way Cal can progress with the coding because the units are there. Then you can improve on the last mod and add in new units.

Well... just an idea.

PS I've got a mate working at Midway (Games Development). Think I'm going to take a week away from the office and shadow him for some experience... (27 now... bit old for work exp, but thought it might make for an interesting placement.)

EDIT, oh sorry the ork bomb's looking great!

That placement thing sounds cool, you'll have to tell us all about it ;)

You're right, EAW was a bit poor once the gloss of the cool space battles wore off. It's not a bad game I guess, but it's not great either.

We probably will keep things small at first, considering we don't have much skinned, and booooomor is the only skinner 'round here, things will have to be small :)

Seeing as this mod is for CnC3 and I plan to mod it...

You *could* contact me over MSN if you need a skinner. Ask me for samples there. I don't know much about the 40k universe, but I enjoy the quality of your mods...

All I require you to do is give me unwrapped models and some references. I'm proficient in photoshopping realistic fabrics, wood, metal and bodily structures.

yer tyranids kick ass. i would think that a 40k mod would have to include them. i think that this mod is going to be one of the best around. the great playable factor of c&c games mixed with the factions and units of the 40k universe makes one good game! ;)
