Angels Fall First: Planetstorm
« on: October 24, 2010, 05:00:12 am »


UT3 sci-fi mod
http://www.moddb.com/mods/angels-fall-first-planetstorm

Angels Fall First: Planetstorm is an objective-based assault game fought both in space and on the ground. Featuring totally original art and completely new gametypes, we take you from flying gigantic capital ships, piloting fighters, and manning turrets to the traditional vehicular and infantry combat, both planetside and inside the starships themselves. At your command are more than two dozen ships and vehicles, including all original weaponry, 3 maps with full bot support, two custom characters, with more on the way. This is a total conversion mod in the fullest sense of the word. Welcome to Planetstorm.









FEATURES

Overview:

    * All original content
    * LAN and Online Multiplayer capability
    * Full bot support (up to 64 bots)
    * Online points system will keep track of your performance and assign correct military ranks, making it possible to know who is more experienced (and thus more suitable for overall command)
    * Objective driven gameplay and different map scenarios encourage tactics and team coordination
    * A wide variety of troop customization options, including specialist armor and an array of kit items

Space:

    * Pilot Capital ships from the bridge
    * Operate ship weapon systems from turret seats
    * Engage in dogfights by launching fighters or dropships from the capital ship bays
    * Complete internal maps of all ships (and a station), which can be accessed seamlessly by boarding maneuvers.
    * Target ship subsystems from space or sabotage/repair them from inside
    * Total immersion inside the spacecraft - consoles short and spark, emergency lighting cuts in warning you to disembark or initiate repairs immediately on critical damage to the spacecraft, the sound of battle can be heard through the hull, windows provide views to the ongoing space battle outside, etc. You will literally be fighting inside moving warships in space combat.

Planetside:

    * Take on the enemy with a large arsenal of infantry weapons, booby traps, and automated turrets
    * A full range of original vehicles and usable scenery: civilian vehicles, dropships, bombers, Surface-to-Air Missile sites, APC's, tanks, scout vehicles and gunships.
    * Revival system means you can attend to a fallen comrade and keep him from dying
    * Squad AI follow you around by default, or you can order them to a specific location with the V key
    * *Bots do most of the things you can do, making single player just as fun as multiplayer gameplay

I really like the space combat.  I could go without everything else.

Btw RC8 is currently released and avaliable for download

the dev team is busy with adding new features, maps and fixing bugs and their plan is to go commercial via steam (like ut2004's mod damnation did, dunno if it used steam tho)

TBH it looks like the same thing as UT3, with small changes in skins and weapons.

sorry for the HUGE bump, just wanted everyone to know that it's still in development even though there hasnt been any public releases since the UDK showcase

me and frombehind got it again and gonna see if we can get on a dev match

*edit: a reply that i completely forgot to do three years ago: yes, marxman, it is like ut3 in the sense that it's a fps and it's on the unreal 3 engine BUT the awesome features of this is that zero g combat, space combat, ship boarding, station boarding and planetary combat are all on the same map with nearly flawless transitions in the release.. in the UDK showcase the planetary combat is still separated from the other stuff though but IIRC the devs are working on adding that in too

hopefully soon we'll see a steam greenlight post on this



*edit2: holy muck this thread has been read 1400+ times

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! it's on steam early access now!!!

they've worked a LOT on it in the past 5 years and the result so far in my personal opinion surpasses star citizen!

ZERO budget, 7 years of development by a small team on weekends and the result is practically ready!

! No longer available

AND the early access version is on sale until the 8th (15 usd, but the full price of 20usd doesnt murder your wallet either :D)

Glad you are excited about !

Wouldn't it be better to wait than shell out money on early access anything?  We shouldn't support that part of gaming production.
