KKnD 2.5: Doufire [dead]

Post by Karl » 03 Nov 2010, 10:45

IMA NOUNIN'C MAH GAME!



So what this Game is all about:
Recreating Units and Structures from KKnD and its Sequel Krossfire
so sort it is based on it and a mix of it + new stuff the time is between 2079 and 2179 (also 1 ~ 2) so to explain why it is mixed

The Game will also include both soundtracks

Plan to further expand the Original Game
-More Air units
-More Sea based units and naval!
-Superweapons and Counter-superweapons
-Special Units
-And more!

The stage is currently pre-alpha and using some resource from TA and Excess as Template they will be replaced this shouldn't be a TA+KKnD Mix :mrgreen:

All suggestions and (Constructive) Critics allowed!

But since this is a one men Project it will take maybe a Year to have a good playable Game out. Also due to my no knowledge of Lua it will play somewhat like TA

Everyone who say that this mod is dead/will never be released You can Munch my bullets

I expect you'll get a lot of flak for copying IP, especially the implication of sharing copyrighted music from the soundtracks. :wink:

This mod will also include only original music tracks.

Uhh I dont think so I could also not include it they can download the Soundtracks anyway off from Youtube :lol:

By Flak do you also mean the stuff that i am using as a Template?
Also i modeled and textured all the Shit from myself nothing copyd from other sources 100% made with GIMP and Wings 3D

Die Musik kannst du ja ├╝bernehmen aber lass bitte dieses v├Âllig ├╝bertrieben laute "WAAAS?" von ka welcher Infantryeinheit raus.

There is already some stuff you could use: ie Buildbar menu or driving over neutral units to spawn allied units (for the bunkers) originally by Argh in PURE and now also used in EvoRTS for example.

Buildbars will be unprobaly because many uses some Custom UI

i will look at thise further maybe when this mod is in Pre-Beta stage
long i know but there gives much importanter things to do than just some Lua magic

I will only make this one post on the subject.

Do not extract assets from a commercial game. Th le Eula typically expressly forbids such things.

If you are making this project and redwood decides to redo kknd, they will c&d your project

If they feel you are making a profit, they will be angry

If general, if an ip is a game and you are making an unofficial sequel be careful about how you represent their ip and talk about said ip, if they fell you are damaging their image they may shut you down

Be sure to give due credit on the ownership of said ip and be sure to make it visible

KKnD 1997 - 2010 (13 Years)
KKnD Krossfire 1998 - 2010 (12 Years)

I dont think they would decide to remake this 12/13 year old Game
unless there is a counter-argument to it I doubt it.

It seems that this mod doesn't get appreciated well due to IP stuff (even though i am just picking up their ideas and names)
maybe this was the bad idea if this continouse i will just make the mod for my self it wouldn't be dead but neither released and only somewhere safe in a Website with a pass protecting .

To be honest you should be atleast a bit little glad there wont give another (OH NO ANOTHER *A MOD!)
wich Spring got like sands on the beach.

And yes i mean this serious

still it wonders why a Game Studios gives a crap on a over 10 year old Games wich other Firms released them as free (Tiberian Dawn for example) just to sue someone (in this case me)

And what it amazes me the KKnD 2: Remake mod (Generals Z:H)
doesn't get much pointed to the IP issue

oh well.

Just putting that up for you to think about the only thing I explicitly advised against is to not take content directly out of the game. The rest is cautionary/advice.

Don't blow it out of proportion.

WHERE IS THE FAMOUS BANANA BOAT EXAMPLE?

Normals make your model look better. Kinda to show what edges should be 'hard' and what edges should 'round out'.
