I've been playing Sins for about 3 years now, and while I enjoy the online combat, I'm very much a campaign-man at heart.
As such, I tend to dislike what often ends up as 'who has the most of this ship wins' and would much prefer to be given a single cap ship, or similar, and fight my way through a few small waves of enemies, find the designated planet and link up with more ships in order to take back a system / artifact etc. Having to guard your ship very carefully and micromanage abilities actually appeals to me, and having a handful of ships that all gain exp, (rather than just caps) and being rewarded for keeping them alive is my kind of game.
While I believe Homeworld may slip into this category (among other games, I'm sure) I'm such a huge fan of SoSE gameplay and combat overall that I would rather mod this than change over.
To be specific, I play a lot of Sins of the Prophets, the excellent Halo mod, and would love to be able to create scenarios, and set up situations in a similar fashion to Age of Empires.
In short, I need help.
While I'm aware of some basics, and have edited some .txt and .ini files for other things, I really have no clue when it comes to modding and would appreciate any help or direction.
If anyone would be able to walk me through the process, that would be fantastic! I have looked at some modding walkthroughs, including the resources on this site, but I desperately need a live, step-by-step to make this work.
On a similar note, I'd also LOVE to make my own mod of this game, though I understand that's a can of worms for another time! (Probably once I've accomplished this!)
Thanks very much.
PS. Should I have posted this on the SotP site?
