[ALPHA][WIP] Rise of the New Order
« on: March 11, 2015, 02:32:00 am »
This mod is somewhat inspired by Wolfenstein: The New Order, System Shock 2, and Deus Ex.
So what makes this different than other OXC total conversions, you ask? Well, nothing!

Story Intro:
Spoiler:

This takes place in 2028, in a different timeline, in a more darker future. Most of the world powers are locked in a second Cold War, with new nations emerging from other countries. A mysterious attack on a random city leaves the world very close to a thermonuclear apocalypse. A meeting of the world powers is called to discuss the recent events that occurred. To everyone's surprise, none of the nations commenced the attack. They all agreed to create and fund the new organization, which will fight this new threat, and destroy it once and for all.

So far, I have made a new world map, but the image is too big to attach, so I will upload it whenever I can.

And here's the planned enemy factions and units, 0-7 signifies rank, * means that the unit has its own spritesheet:
Spoiler:
0: Commander to 5: Soldier, 6-7: Terror Units
    BlackAngel PMC : Typical Mercenary Faction. Used as footsoldiers. Standard Equipment.
    0   Field Commander
    1   Squadron Leader
    2   Armored Engineer *
    3   Medic
    4   Air Marshal *
    5   Soldier *
    6   Terrorist
    7   Anti-Infantry Tank *
    Joint Strike Operatives : Flying Units.
    0   Section Commander
    1   Field Marshal
    2   Chief of Engineering     
    3   Medic Specialist
    4   Wing Commodore
    5   Winged Scout
    6   Terror Drone?
    Scientology Syndicate : Does twisted experiments that humanity would never approve of. More Advanced.
    0   Commander of the Covert
    1   High Priest
    2   Foreman
    3   Zealot
    4   Advisor
    5   Neophyte
    6   Fanatic
    Forced Evolution Brotherhood : Mutants, byproducts of failed experiments that the Scientology Syndicate created. Ability to turn humans into mutants.
    2   Nuclear Specialist
    3   Virus Breeder
    4   Advisor
    5   Mutant Soldier
    The Blessed : Psionic Units. So far I have:
   7   Mastermind Tank
    Cybernetic Collective : Cyborgs, with attacks that transform humans. So far:
   6   Deconstructor

There will be new weapons introduced in the game. When I have time, I will make a list of new weapons that are planned or already in the mod.

My goal right now is to get the mod planned out and functional first before making new art assets. I'm currently using some assets from Dioxine's Piratez mod and UFO2000 as placeholders.
   
Credits
Dioxine, for his Piratez mod. I used several resources from that mod.
The sprite creators for UFO 2000. Again, I used several resources from that.
The Soldier with Green Vest and Helmet is from Ryskeliinis, so credit goes out to him.
For now, here is one screenshot. More will come later.

Here's the new world map that I made, in JPEG format, for my mod. Please tell me what you think.

i'd dissolve most russia and only add the western most part to the soviet bloc
add rest of russia to  china
i'd combine japan and korea into a new country/region pehaps japanese-korean bloc
also i wouldn't use tribes they will probably way more advanced by now
also i'd make south-western half of united states combined with mexico into a new latin bloc nation  probably free america vs republic of america eastern+canada
and canada part of united states

free america is mostly spanish speaking people and former american people that went for more liberal life
republic of america would be more militaristic and more political and bureaucratic
free asia = india and most south asia/islands and  - same as free america both of these look to each other and are more decent of all the other countries
china = most of russia+china - same as republic of america more militaristic
japan and korea combine afaid of china and new growing american threat
etc

Zanzibar is located in Africa, not the Middle East/Central Asia. Korea forming a nation with the Soviet Union feels weird, since it would be more likely for Korea to be a satellite of the USSR, like the Euro-Soviet League. The Eurasian Alliance of Countries/Eurasia Independent Isles are also weird names since none of those countries is in Asia and while Europe and Asia are on the same landmass, traditionally they are considered two different continents. North African Tribes are really more of Central African Tribes.

this is my logic:

korea and japan are similar hence combining out of fear would of china be logical

china wants to dominate asia but a block of all other asian countries unite against it. hence free united asia.

america is militaristic but there is a huge influx of spanish people from south america changing the landscape. presumably half of america will be spanish?  so ends up being split in two. the militaristic america anexes canada for resources to sustain it's wars. most forward looking people scientists artists etc flee to spanish speaking free america.

europe is chill but old country with no power or resources left.

middle east and north africa are all muslim perhaps a muslim master nation forms

south/middle africa is not muslim perhaps remains split into independed states taht eventually unite like america maybe united states of africa?


russia's power is slowly waning a lot of countries are leaving all is gonna be left are the western more core area that takes over most of the eastern weakened europe which is already very russified from previous communist regimes.

australia continues to stay austalia and most asian island nations join the eustalasian bloc against looming chinese threat.


big threats - republic of america, china, new russia

world war 4+ is gonna be a battle between these 3 nations with everyone caught in the middle and used for resources

Here is another attempt of the new Geoscape, based on suggestions. What does everyone think?

I just need new names for Russia and Japan-Korea. For Japan-Korea, I was thinking something like the Japan-Korea Initiative.

Koreans & Canadians won't like this mod :)

Where are the Nazis at? Where are the Reds? :)

As for the names, the most logical seem:
- Nihon Federation (guessing they had to drop the Empire part if they wanted to stay alive... maybe even they're considering Koreans as almost-human-beings now :) )

- The new Russia is obviously non-Soviet, because Eastern Europe seems to be Red... so who are they? Renegade Generals? Old hardliners? Politics is crucial! I'll go with the Stalin-era split, with Marshall Zhukov declaring independence after smashing Allied land armies and conquering Paris (and during the following years, returning French and German lands to their owners)... so the "old" Russia would be the CCCP... BUT it obviously suffered further split, so it can be anything now. Maybe a restored Tzardom? So... Holy Russia is my proposition.

Naming arctic region as empire is funny. Maybe after melting ice caps it would make more sense ;-)

look great!
The new enemy is an alien enemy or is an all terrestrial game? (if spoiler, don't answer)

As for the map:
Austria and Germany should be on same block!
