[WIP] Chronicles
« on: January 03, 2019, 05:57:33 pm »
So here is my new project.
It is on very early stage, only pair of missions are done.
Goal is - at this time invaders came from parallel world with magic. Yes, all fantasy stereotypes can be implemented. But there will be another secrets, revealing through game stages. Plot is connected with mod name, but it can change, i am pretty sure.

Features:
 - National contracts: conclude agreement with USA/Russia/China for specific equipment. Only one ally allowed.
 - Research X-Com special techs.
 - You can see that humans are nothing compared to invaders.
 - A lot of soldier transformations.
 - Monsters.
 - Monsters with magic.
 - Humanity techs are weak compare to magic.
 - Technomagic hybridisation.
 - Mysterious plot.
 - Apocalypse.
 - Lot of plans, lot of work needed. Lets do it step by step.

My current goal: Marauders plot arc. (~30%done)
Future goals:
 - Pirates arc (10%)
 - Feudal arc (5%)
 - Cultists arc (0%)
 - Lords arc (0%)
 - ...
 - Lairs arc. (1%)

Interesting project! Im not a huge fan of magic (I'm more a "future war" guy), but seems promising. BTW, I loved the helicopter, I want it in my mods. ;D

Looking forward for this project. :)

I think FeruEnzeru wanted some magic-themed mod, he will be very pleased with this.

@Nord
You're going to be doing another project than just TWOTS mod for TFTD? Sweet! :D

Looks like we're going be having another project soon enough. hehe ;D

I wonder what an actual Fantasy themed TC mod without some of the sci-fi stuff (from XCOM like guns, UFOs, lasers, plasmas, gausses, etc) for OpenXCOM will be like, unless it's OXCE only instead of regular or nightly.

I'm following this mod thread now while waiting for plans for me to get my WC3 interest back til Reforged comes out this year then.
Cuz FEJK's going shopping! ^_^

Best of luck for this mod, i would love to see it become a reality, i started toying with a similar idea myself years ago with  FOXY but i was going to make it a pure fantasy adventure :) i will keep my eye on this mod

Nice work Nord, you’ve captured some concepts I’ve been exploring but haven’t really got anywhere with as hectic personal life means lack of XCOM missing time.
