S.A.D. The Cythid Race
« on: July 05, 2010, 10:54:28 am »
There is going to be at least one new race in S.A.D., possibly more.  I am putting topics up for discussion and development of these races

Looks great so far, Matthias.  But be careful, we don't want all the ships to be almost exactly like original S.A.D. ships just with different abilities.  If you have, say, 3 or 4 ships totally unique, you should be fine.

Think of it like Starcraft: The Terran Wraith and Protoss scout were almost identical, same with the Battlecruiser/Carrier and Zerg Hydralisk/Protoss Dragoon.  That was fine, but there were many units totally different from each other.

Keep it up!

The runners are definitely unique, I will say that :D

Since I have two new obsession: SAD and GIF animations lets combine them with my 'skills' as a moviemaker...this is just one shot of a small introduction I want to make for the xaos. All hand drawn in paint :P.

LOL Don't get so obsessed with S.A.D. that your parents worry that you're not getting enough exercise outside ;P

Btw Matthias, would you like to create the Xaos campaign, or would you like me to do that?  Each campaign will have about 7-10 missions (except for the example "custom" campaign I provide for the player, which will have 25), and I will make sure you know privately what's going on with the other three campaigns so that you know where to start

Wow those are nice Matthias1992. Good job so far :)

Just one thing, it is generally viewed as bad on these type of forums to double-post without considerable amount of time between posts (since it is viewed as postcount inflating by some other people and can make threads harder to read since they get split in even more pages). Generally it's 1 hour for project updates and 6 for other posts (on many other sites it's 24-72), otherwise it is recommended to edit your previous posts.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

OK here is a small update (altough there is a huge one around the corner ;) ).

I did some redesigning on the Xaos and I changed some units. For now I will just give names.

GROUND:

Builderbot->Assault Drone ->Mortar Drone -> Bigfoot (Maximus)

AIR:

Builderbot->Aerial->Scipii->Mothership (Hydron)

SPECIAL:

Hydron   \
              --Maxidron
Maximus /

the ->'s mean you can upgrade from one unit on the left to a unit on the right. So you can go from a Builderbot to a Aerial but you can not go from a builderbot to a Scipii (you need to make the Aerial first). The names in parenthesis are alternative names. A bigfoot can become a Maximus if it is fully upgraded. Just like so, a Mothership can become a Hydron if it has all upgrades.

The last thing I am gonna tell you is that Maxidron is a very, very powerful unit, altough not invincible it comes very close. For the sake of balance however there is a huge IF to it. That being you have to pay a huge price for it and secondly, you must have build both the Maximus and the Hydron. From either one of them (the one you build the last) you can then construct the Maxidron.

Ooh, yea...
one more thing. :P
Maxidron is spelled with d not with t, this is important because the Maxitron is far more powerful then the Maxidron

Here is a drawing of the MaxiDron, forgive the poor quality I do not have a scanner so I just took a photgraph of it.
