7 custom faction for Smacx
« on: February 13, 2012, 03:34:58 PM »
i'm working on a mod of 7 new custom faction to play in Alien Crossfire

- the UNION is the reunion of the free and independence colonies of the planet

- the CONFEDERACY ARMADA a paramilitary faction following right-wing policies

- the MERCHANT GILD a merchant faction

- a theocratic foundamentalist green faction (that synthesize gaians, planet cult and belivers concept)

- an alien faction predator of planets resources

- an alien faction who defende the galaxies

- a private pseudo-criminal faction organized in horde clan (that synthesize pirates, drones and data concept)

the project is in development so any suggestion or new ideas, explained also and above throw the pictures (the universal intergalactic language to better explain own concepts) are welcome and appreciates

For your green fundimentalists, might I suggest the name "The Stewards"?  There's stuff in the Bible commanding we be good stewards (caretakers) of what God has given us.

See also the attached logo - with a cross added in the middle of the tree, that would say the right things about the faction.

I like your Confederacy graphic.  Good use of slang in the credits, too.

Now, I can't see any difference between the stage 3 and stage four bases.  You might want to add something obvious to it or make the roof gold - something like that, to make telling the difference no trouble.  Some trace of a sea platform for your sea bases would be good, too.

That's all I can find to criticize.  This is very good work.

It seem a rap tribute. that [poop] turns worldwide, his basic form helps someone like me
now i've got seriously problems because firefox continue to crash and i lose the message i continue to write
i change browser now

Now, I can't see any difference between the stage 3 and stage four bases.

in fact there's not different between two stages. I've tried to add a small piece near the main 'palace' but this action enlarge too all the base, so it need a too large perimeter defence (i can reduce main palace because then you can't see well the main beautiful subject)

You might want to add something obvious to it or make the roof gold - something like that, to make telling the difference no trouble.


This is a good suggestion, I had not thought

Some trace of a sea platform for your sea bases would be good, too.

it's true i didn't make it because a sort of platform (in brown colour) already exist at the foots of the base

That's all I can find to criticize. 

and i thank you to suggest me what's now

I don't worry very much about sea platforms myself, on land-based factions.

The Confederacy leader portrait is based on Angelina Jolie from Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, isn't it?

That's a vivid image, and the Union looks good so far.  Same comments as previously for the bases, but I see you're already thinking about that. 

I look forward to what you do with this.  You do good work.

* Random quote

I think, and my thoughts cross the barrier into the synapses of the machine - just as the good doctor intended. But what I cannot shake, and what hints at things to come, is that thoughts cross back. In my dreams the sensibility of the machine invades the periphery of my consciousness. Dark. Rigid. Cold. Alien. Evolution is at work here, but just what is evolving remains to be seen.
~Commissioner Pravin Lal 'Man and Machine'
