Mars, Now in SMAC
« on: October 27, 2012, 03:54:40 AM »
This is an attempt to make a mod akin to mars now in SMAC.  Not a true remake, but something like it with the "ideology, not nationality" feel of SMAC.

-Xenofungus will be replaced by "Animus Fluid" and spawn Replicators and arial Nanites.

-GUI change (possibly)

-more to come



     In the year 2058, the world will be SEVERLY overpopulated.  In an attempt to solve the problem, the UN will send robotic mirrors and vegetation seed pods created by Virgin Galactic to Mars to start the terraforming process.  By 2061, the poles have melted sucessfully, and the hybrid vegatation has started to take hold.  However, an asteroid pulverises Austrialia, throwing enough soil into the air to start a mini ice age.  A starship is rushed into construction.  As the final wars of Earth die down, the U.N. Frontier reaches Mars in 2066 after a 2 year voyage.  They discover that their terraforming has brought forth a black Animus Fluid that has covered part of the planet.


    When the last radio contact from Earth died out, the leaders on board the ship had other plans for the people onboard.  They agree to separate into several factions so the odds of survival increase.  As the ship breaks apart, they fly out to the planet below...

EDIT: sorry, soil into the air, not vice versa

I love civII, but am not familiar with the mods and cannot, therefore, vote in the poll.

I think you've got an interesting notion.  Tell us more.

Need any help with the art/creative end?

Why yes.  I have used the Union from the downloads page to replace the Spartans.

In your portaits file you have a gal called Aimie.  She would make a GREAT industrial type faction leader.

That will make ariete very happy, I think - I told him it was good work.

Are you asking me to process Aimie into a leaderhead for you, or tell you how?  I'd rather teach a man to fish, although it might take me longer.

She's rather young, or do you have a child labor theme in mind?  Wouldn't take a lot to make her a little older, though - bigger nose, more cheekbones, mostly.

What's with the DL Matt?  We don't have a rule against so far, and you're hardly trying to sneak with that handle, so I'm just asking.

Double Login, a second member account, something forbidden most places.  Probably will be here soon enough, but we're avoiding rules as long as it's not proven to us that we need any particular one. 

Matt seems to be off the member list now; I'm looking into it.

Okay; I would have found it sooner if I hadn't needed to come to this thread to find the Matt account - there's a button, and I reactivated you.  Log out and back in as Matt.

Keep the DL for now - it's publically outed, so no harm likely to be possible.  Your DL has one more post than most members, so I like him already.

Going to bed now, and sisko is having RL stuff, so try not to get in this fix again for another 8 or 9 hours.

Do you need a hand with terrain modding? I've done two terrains before, one paradise one for LE and an unreleased one based off Strawberry Fields Forever, my own Civ2 mod...

Heck no!  Children working in factories is an atrocity!  If you could post an older version of her, I'll do the rest.

That won't take all that long.  Going to lunch now, but look for something in an hour or two.

I think this is enough difference; before, she could have been as young as 12, though hard to say.  This makes her at least 18, I think.  A side-by-side comparison:

   

Of course, I didn't touch a big clue to youth, her tiny shoulders making her head look big like a little girl.  Something to try to conceal in the cropping.

Enjoy.
