Isometric buildings, mod *cough*

Postby xenel » Mon Oct 02, 2006 11:08 pm

Since Darwinia was so modable I couldn't resist unpacking the dats so I kinda had to mod Defcon.

It started out with a B52 bomber, which can be found somewhere on the screenshot. Then I was like: "Why not do isometric buildings" and well, just did it. I tried to keep a bit of the simplistic style, which you kinda have to because the sprites are a so small anyway. In the end this is what I got, it's not perfect but looks quite good.

Maybe you enjoy it too. I'll pack it in a zip tomorrow and post it too if you people want it.

Looks brilliant. You should definitely upload it here! :D

Radars and airfields ... are my favourites so far. Keep up the good work!

Wow, didn't expect that many replies in such a short time. These forums sure have changed. Anyway, here the link: http://tehfile.com/061003005025/defconIsoBuildings.zip

But remember this is nothing final and if it breaks your comp, blame the enemy's nukes not me.

Regards.

Mind if I mirror on defcongame.tk? I've already written a bit about this mod :P

Oh, and reading your ohia.txt, might I suggest the incredibly simple ModLoader? :roll:

The only thing I kind of dislike about it is that in the heat of battle, it can be hard to tell the bombers apart from the airplanes. It's pretty nice otherwise.

Just go ahead and mirror it. About the modloader, I'll might figure that stuff out after I have a finished version, but I already have an eye on it.

I agree, that's why the bomber isn't included in the zip ;).

Think you can do a modern style update for the fighter icon?
I must agree the bombers are great the way they were. ( I love the stealth fighter type. )

As for the isometric structures, i just don't know. :P
Did you position them so the missiles actually came out of the holes?
"Surely you didn't mean to press that button just then did you?"
"No, nor will i disarm the nukes."
"Oh well, I will have my Fighters shoot them down."
"Sure you will."
"Oh NOES, ITS BEEN PATCHED!!!"

Looks nice. Only thing I dislike is the game was made with counter icons in mind. So by putting in unit looking icons kinda takes away from the game a little. But none the less they do look nice.
