Humanity, with all its sin, and corruption at least started to move into deep space. This is first frontier of those who eventually became first colonists of the distant space. However, they took their sins into the space. That's how was started first inter space war. High space command was corrupted, and after first conflict was turned up..without help of colonization generals they was easy target, that's what brotherhood of unity thought. They destroyed all generals and claimed main station as main citadel.
RACES: Basically there is 4 races in this game - all have similar starting types of buildings, but different ones in further development (like in C&C tiberian dawn).
Brotherhood of Unity (BrUn): Fanatics which on one of planet found out sacred knowledge of what ancient earth civilizations called "magic". Basically there is some psycho-warfare for them - mind control, ether energy sources, control of some elements trough technological powers.
Additional tech: more powerful build powers, more powerful energy income, fireballs, lightning generators etc. Super weapon:Moon-sized fireball.
Shadows of terrestrial being (STB): Prison humans, which doesn't payed for their crimes, but took control of prison on another interesting planet... there they found ancient structures which has powerful void power. (another "magic"). Some mad scientists quickly assembled some devices which was capable of using void powers. To example teleportation, faster regeneration of ammunition-from-nowhere and worst of all - capability of control of black holes. Only minor problem - they wasn't able to reverse process of merging with void. That's why they're not humans anymore - only shadows of them...
Colonization outcasts (CO): Space privateers, pirates of outer and inner circles of colonization program. Their part - fastest spaceships, regardless less powerful weapons, best pilots with loads of experience. This faction haven't too much of walking units, but have some really powerful ones, also more defense structures.
Additional tech: more flying units which also more faster, focus on piercing strikes (instead of STB area-of-effect weaponry), aoe surrounding powers (squad of jaguar space fighters feels their power and they attacks more quicker and powerful).
Successors of giant science complex which was isolated of central command. Their powers in very deep developing of terrestrial science knowledge. All units have powerful morphs into expanded types (space rover builder - space elephant tank - space mammoth tank and etc), armor more hard, basic weapons have more upgrades and larger radius. Also much more innovations.
Additional tech: every unit and building have +10% to health, special adaptive shields (there is interesting part - shields which can adapt to single weapon type to absorb its effect on 100%, but can't stand if they're will be attacked by another types of weapons (~5 seconds after last attack to release itself from adopted technicue) also only shields which can barely absorb damage of super-weapons), cold-fusion weaponry.
Super weapon: nuclear warhead.
Anyone Who interested in joining in project and helping to accomplish it please sign in right in this topic. I will be pleased.
Starcraft-like upgrade system Comlpeted:100%
Terran colonial module
First unit which you will receive at the beginning. It floats. Haven't any weapons, have small speed of moving, only purpose - find place to establish base. After this it disappears up, back to the starts.
Terran colonial base.
Main building. All-in-one complex including - Radar module - 4 solar batteries - Energy storage - Metal storage - Missile command with missile silo (defensive part) - Living dome REWORKED: Now it makes units in front of it (sc like)
Terran Spaceship pad Second but not least factory, allows you construct various types of spaceships: starting from mex-shuttle and finishing with light space-frigates. After researching "fusion development" it activates its side nano sprayers and having x2 build power. (or x3 after researching ether energy (BrUn))
Terran Laboratory Module (all upgrades are doing there)
Terran Supply Shuttle (basically harvester i suppose)
Unarmed jump-jet builder. Primary Terran construction unit (yep - its scv). Constructed into Colonial station. Since first colonization moves, high command quickly learned that brigade of unarmored space-suits can't be so useful against hazardous areas. Engineers quickly assembled new walker. Basically its unarmed, but because of its jump-jets can jump in long distances for providing support around battlefield, as well as constructing new structures.
Armed with basic rocket-launcher to prevent attacking of rover.
Light chaingun turret. Basic defense structure. Good vs both flying targets and ground units. Shots with exploding bullets (3" caliber).
Terran Arac (armored assault chicken :D) Light battle walker (hi mechwarrior). Shoots with exploding disks (hi there C&C Tiberian Sun :D), and upgrades with Twin missile launcher (Serious guns upgrade). This tiny unit was created for the first encounters between colonies. New Ballistic disk weapon was perfect in both gas and vacuum environments. Since then was developed new, more powerful battle walkers, but this one, due its cheap price and good battle characteristics still actively used for small warfares and raiding.
Terran Space-mamonth assault rover.
One of the last units (t2 or t3 i suppose). Giant battle fortress designed as large mobile turret (transportable with t3 lifter)
Ok. I have no idea what is this craft. Kinda alien vortex craft...i dunno Recent reports showed that nearby one of our colonies was spotted unknown craft. Material looks like serious messup from different metals and polymers, cabin also can't be scanned. Military structures in 100% combat readiness.
Appendix: GAH..too much info - I'll make wiki then.

Skip the flavour text, what's the plan for the gameplay? TA-style mechanics, but in space with voidwater maps?
Those models have some great assets - the main body of the first one looks good, and the rounded part and the flat part of the second looks great. But that gradiated brushed metal skin you used on the first model in the little wedges and stuff? It makes it look like the lighting has gone crazy. Like your normals are completely out-of-whack. In general, the little wedges and boxes look kind of bolted on, but they might be able to pass if they had a better texture (or normals, if the normals are causing the problem).
The second one has a similar problem in that things like the little solar collectors don't really integrate in with the model - they look kind of stuck-on.
Good, good. About solar collectors - i will fix them with black metal and more blurred-to-black texture. Don't worry about it. Well mostly i guess it will be ta mechanics but without nanospam. Base building up most of the units, then there will be military base which will build more serious units for fight. Also in plan if i will find good lua coder to help, we will write upgrade gadget-widget (starcraft-like upgrades).
First units will be (for terrans) like moon-rovers with rocket launchers installed (basic type of weaponry in space). Then there will be some flying units like resource-sucker space shuttle (harvester-like..for this matter i thinking about 1. unpacking harvester-to-metal mex 2. Take oksnoop's asteroids-generator-on-metal mex) Flying weapon platforms. Also in plans make interesting effect - space gantry space-fighter caller - basically just factory which building platform located very high in air so airships will fly down after creation to reach their normal altitude.
Then I a bit stuck with selection Or we making sectoids-from-x-com-like race with ufo, wierd tech and stuff, or we making another bullshitty chicken-like race. I'm really confused about selection of enemy race.
Current goal to make terrans looks like modern technologies, but shifted to the future around 100 years (nano construction).

weee space mod :) i suggest brighter textures because space is black, hard to see black units on black background. solar panels: these small panels make little sense for such a big station anyway, i would rework them into antennas.
This not entirely space mod. Well at least you will be able to play it normally on ground maps. Well and because i can't make (build) units already floating in air i suppose you will sill need some ground to place buildings. UPG in head-message

Make little planets that are surrounded by space. Planets could act like ground where ground units would dominate, but space units would have to get them their, so you mix space naval strategy with ground strategy, and the in between (such as units that can come into atmosphere like fighters, dropships, ect.).
Nope. Too complicated and imo retarded for complex strategy which mostly based on ta. There will be standard layout of building and growing of forces, only difference - it will depend more on open-space technologies, not planet-based ones. As well as upgrade systems (need good lua-coder for coop work on gadget). I do not want to turn spring into real-time master of orion or some sort of similar global-space strategy.

planets that are surrounded by space
far out man
As well as upgrade systems
zwszg has done multiple unlock-unit system things (cant find thread) and iam doing something similiar that also allows unit upgrades. (ie upgrade units to get faster speed, an extra missle launcher, faster rof etc) gundam has teching too.
