Empire at War: Total Realism v2.0 --- get ready...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[edit] For easier referance i quote the download links below that Orao has already posted:

Well, as promised, it's 1/4/2006 and we uploaded Empire at War: Total Realism v2.0...enjoy and send us the required feedback to
enhance this mod even more!

******************
* DOWNLOAD NOW! *
******************

Empire at War: Total Realism mod is a creation of A.Tsiolas (Athanasios) and M.Goran (Orao).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT NOTE: It would be V-E-R-Y helpful if you could send us in the contact email (found in last section of README file) along with the feedback described here, some screenshots or even short videos showing the problem you are talking about. In your email just put a easy-referance subject (ie. bug: Piett rapid turn speed, imbalance: ATST no efficient against infantry). You may also copy & paste the description of the problem as posted in the forums, but do not omit to post the problem in the forums too, so that other people that face the same problem acknowledge that it's already reported.

Orao recommends using FRAPS program (uploaded to our site) to record in-game videos. It can capture screenshots too. Mind to turn your screenshots into .JPEG format, so that they are not huge (.tga format: 5 MB/image, .jpeg format: 200 KB/image .

Thanks again for the feedback
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okey, we kept silence for quite long while working hard in the backround to boost up the already preferred modification "Empire at War: Total Realism". Due to the wide appeal we decided to get our hands even more dirty and steal some precious free time from our lives to bring you the mod you were asking for.

Anyway, to stop the babbling and get into the point, EaW:TR v2.0 will be uploaded (hopefully) this Saturday, 1/4/2006 (no, we're not liing ) featuring a wide range of new enhancements, from a minor footprint re-scalling to a whole re-configuration of ground & space combat and Galactic Conquest experience.

Below i post some parts of the extensive readme file. Stay tuned in topic, since until Saturday, ill post the images you will be asking for and even more.

So, get ready, load your patience, excercise with some veterans out there, and then come face the real devastating power of some marching ATAT & Star Destroyers, or fulfil your thirst for freeding up the galaxy with more advanced tactics than ever before!

PS: Mind that since the text below is directly copied from a text file, the organisation doesn't look as in the text file; i did my best to make it look nice in this thread, but in the original readme file it's just "as meant to be".
-------------------------------------------------------

***[edit]*** Due to MANY difficulties i had to post a decent listed thread in this forum, i redirect you to the PFF forums where you can see the post as meant to be. I mind waste an hour posting the post (as you can see it in PFF forums) here too later.

Wow, whiteflash is right, that DOES sound pretty amazing... though in an earlier thread, me and some others were debating the issues of posting the CE maps... Might not want to do that...


Come on, did you actually think your destiny wasn't set?

I am absolutely loving the sound of this!!

One thing though, seeing as darth and the emperor are being powered up by stormtroopers and imperial guards, would it not be good to do the same for the rebellion heroes?

Maybe some wookiees to go with chewie and han? Obi-Wan could use some help too to be fair, he is pants compared to vader. Some infiltrators would help although I guess that isn't really lore...

Keep up the good work!

Sounds magnificent! Already playing with 1.1 and finding it much more exciting than vanilla EaW. In the words of an AT-AT Commander: "Prepare to crush the Rebel scum!"

tie advanced?, is this a new model or are you using the tie scout model for it?

"Multiple installation options for: (1) High-end systems, (2) Low-end systems"

any idea what is considered high end/low end? yet

btw, mod sounds great

Update at the PFF Forums! The link is not here

Enjoy!


Some short answers:

1. Multiple installation options
Some features like the camera enhancement and the many lasers on ships will make low-end systems crawl, since they demand high cpu & graphic card power. So, we'll include many installation options for all preferances.

2. TIE Advanced X1
Yup, no TIE Scout, just a pure TIE Advanced X1 model (as you can see in the image).

3. Spawn units
As you may know, ships and ground buildings spawn some units during a battle (forever). Now, this is not the case; when those spawn units are up, no more spawn/garisson units. Ofcourse, we tweaked the capacity too.

Heh, it's ok. I just wanted everyone to have them. What's the point of playing online skirmish with those maps if only 1 out of 10 people have them?

Yep sorry guys. We can't release it untill tomorrow. We are doing some last minute polishing and translation to french is time consuming. Besides we are only 2 on this mod.

I look forward to this mod, but what makes the scaling you have done different then the scaling done in the "Open Conflict" mod which has been around for a long time---it has over 1000 posts to it?

@Admiral Z : done

@walpurgisng: First, i won't commend on the number of posts a thread may gather for various reasons and secondly i won't compare TR with OC because, first of all, comparison is up to you and secondly, i have nice relationships with Adonnay that i have no intenesion to break. I will only say that scaling, contrary to most mods out there that include rescaling, has been based on this principal: "We keep the eye-candy visual effect of battles, but make it in the right scale". In other words, you will not see fighters and troopers as dots (literally) on the map, in favour of the towering ATAT or the massive SD.

Of course, the only problem currently is that we can't resize maps too. But that's a short work which will be done asap we have a map editor.

We have our own webspace from ISP. Don't worry. And this is ATAT barge. As you can see it is pretty big.

What we are trying to do now is to find some good installer which will greatly simplify things for guys who dont want to bother with any sort of editing. If you have any good one here is your chance to help us.

Otherwise we will just pack the files into single rar file with detailed instructions on how to install properly and nicely.
