  • If you're doing a Leninist Bolshevik revival faction, my suggestion is not to go with the Kremlin but rather try these out for bases:


    With little bit of editing, you can make it so it has doorways and people are living in the statue or some such, other structures can be added as well.

    As for aerial shots of the Kremlin though, if you are persistent, as well as other monumental structure...


    I already used that Colosseum in my New Rome fac.
    I'm not sure about the Russia faction anymore, I might do it but likely not till the rest of the facs are done.
    I'm going to work on some abstract one from a planet in our solar system, I just hand-drew from scratch a new defense/wall to go with it. Perhaps I should just make a Countries of Earth fac pack after this one, and include the few I've already done. I could probably do 2 or 3 major countries per inhabited continent.

  • I guess for the good of AC2, I'll put up my wall graphic here and on the Graphics page. Who knows, maybe I'll eventually do my own Bare Shields file. It certainly isn't the best, but it still looks good as a wall in my Mars faction I'm doing.

  • Alright, up next is the Mars. More formally known as the Mars Federation.
    Wall is the hand-drawn. Pic is just a caretaker with a purple tusk to distinguish.

    Alright, that faction is done. Going to post it now.
    Actually, besides scanlines, The 2 Star Wars facs are done. As I don't want to work on them anymore, I'm just going to say they are completed. Let's call them my noob factions?

  • I plan to finish this by the end of today. Any last-minute faction ideas anyone wants to see in my first pack?

  • Alright everyone, time for some more serious factions. Ones that I'll write a little more lore too, and ones that are MY ideas.
    Ones that could have realistically gotten a colony pod.
    Here is a little preview of the "Red Unit"?

    It is led by Web Leader Ivana Dostya (you probably wont know the cameo)
    Alright, but first here is the logo:
    I have someone helping me with the .txt file insults and sentences and such, as I normally write them pretty bland :/
    The idea is a cyborg faction, although less so than the Consciousness. Inbetween the University and Spartans.
    Cyborg technology connects all who live in this nation to the Command Web.
    A branch is located at every base, and data is transfered if one is lost. The Command Web is in essence a high-tech datalink system. If you are on the Command Web, you can pull yourself into a state controlled by your brain without any distractions, or mistakes. Of course, not everyone can do this unless you are a higher-up. In essence you can either use it like an internet from person-person rather than machine-machine, or you can use it to disconnect from yourself for a time. This allows for increased research (+1 Research). The battle mode that is downloaded to the military makes their normal morale seem like a +1 to us (+1 morale). Unfortunately, this creates a limited economic system, as many do not need supermarkets and such. It is all distributed, through Web Leaders. It is a bit controlled, but if you want to do it another way nobody stops you from creating that Food Mart you've been dreaming about.
    At least that's the idea.
    If you wanted to crash the Web, that would be nigh-impossible. "keys" are held by one person in every Cyborg base, and one spy/citizen in every other faction.

  • I sorted out all the factions I have made so far into a "junk pile" of sorts on the third reply. Most are not very serious, and little time was spent on the background of the faction. So I put the first faction that I would download and play against, the Red Unit, on the first post.
    If your going to check out any of my factions, give that one a whirl.
    Big credit to ChocolateTeapot from fanfiction.net for the lore and .txt file on Red Unit

  • Reagan would not be opposed to thought control. He would be opposed to planned economics. Remember, Reagan was put in power by an American faction at the time known as the "moral majority", a conservative protestant religious group as well as big business who were anti union. Never mind both Nancy and Ronald Reagan were Hollywood stars at one point and had access to more liberal ideas.

  • Also needs plus to morale or support and maybe a minus to industry. Reagan dismantled much of U.S. manufacturing capacity at least for consumer goods to let magnates put factories in cheap labor countries. But, he also maintained a very strong and loyal military.

    Yeah, I suppose I should go back to the Reaganite txt file. The reason I put it in the junk pile is because I didn't think it through very well.
    Appreciate suggestions. Although this helps, if your going to give advice it would be a little bit more useful on the factions I have on the first page.
    This is still helpful though. Thanks.

    I shall not confront Planet as an enemy, but shall accept its mysteries as gifts to be cherished. Nor shall I crudely seek to peel the layers away like the skin from an onion. Instead I shall gather them together as the tree gathers the breeze. The wind shall blow and I shall bend. The sky shall open and I shall drink my fill.
