There wont be a website until i have something to release. I do have a web host, but until i can conjure up a halfway decent alpha i wont use it yet. All you have to do is check the last couple pages on this thread for updates if i have any.
I am not planing for a total conversion mod right now. It is more or less ships, units, sounds, art, and effects replacements (just like the original SoA mod was for Homeworld). There is still much i need to learn about the engine before i can attempt a TC.
I will try to edit the main page of this thread for any future updates (if the edit button isnt broken).
I managed to crudely fix the firing arc problems some of the ships have been having. before all the beam weapons would ether fire forward only, or all the weapons would fire a full 360 degrees if you wanted them to or not. What i did do is not a perfect solution, but it will at least keep some of the weapons from firing through the ships hulls. It will also make weapons fire in the direction intended. The weapons through the hull issue is something we will have to live with unless Ironclad codes in ways to control, and limit a hardpoints firing arc. Right now we just have forward, back, left, and right with no way to limit anything in between. For forward only firing ships this isnt an issue, but most federation ships have lots of weapons that fire to the side, and aft. It was very disturbing to watch the sovereign fire all 17 of its phasers right through its hull at one target.
Anyways when i have updates i will post them. So theres no need to ask if there is any news. When i know, You will know
