Beta Version WW II 0.8.2
Pre Alpha GW II 0.1.8 Full Conversion

Nations: USA, GB, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Finland, Russia, China, Japan
Own CoA and Flags from 1930+
Race images for all nations
Ideology as race family: Enslave or exterminate communism etc.
A roughly fitting policy concerning ship classes build etc.
A roughly fitting bias concerning relationships of 1930
Futuristic names of empires in their local language
Limited dialogue file for the "Viertes Reich"

Note: The pictures below are already updated. All are revised!

Plans:

Two Mods
- Customization WW II Mod (Integrated in the game folder)
- Stand Alone RP Mod (needs a seperate folder since it WILL override basic files of the game)

Additions of the Stand Alone Mod
- Edited Galactopedia
- Reworked Gametext file
- Own backstory
- Different goals and attributes
- RP Characters

Prestory:

WW II parody:

Just when humanity found its way into space, building a great empire, the crowded and atomic danger became transparent and the first colonies tried to become independent. Nations arose through old traditions and bloodlines claiming once again ideals of the perfect rule, fueled by centuries below a stupid consensus world republic, and forces the space into a state of war. First skirmishes ensued, followed by smaller empire wars leading up to the great first galactic war! After the first shattering war had been settled and a layer of silence descended upon the destroyed galaxy as the remainders rebuild themselves, first scouts told a terrible truth. Again the greatest nations and threats of the past came into being. A clash between capitalism, socialism and national socialsm... between racial supremacy and equality... and in a corner of the galaxy the remainder of the once polish colony and new small empire exhaled...

"Not again!"

Features

WW II parody:

- Own flag pack featuring the coat of arms of the main nations of WWII, for example Poland, Japan, China, US, British Empire, France, Hungary and many more!
- Superpowers and an overwhelming enemy, join the axis and help the "Vierte Reich" to conquer the space or side with whatever part of the allies you can to rally against them... or lead the communism to total domination!
- Completly revised policies, racial features and biases!
- Ideology is your race family and will therefore influence your starting relations to other empires and is your choice for enslavement and extermination. Want to kill some commies?!
...Race Families...
0 = National Socialistic Facism
1 = National Facism
2 = Socialistic Facism
3 = Social Capitalism
4 = Finance Capitalism
5 = Independent Nationalism
- Get strategic ressources like "Krupp-Steel" for germanys war machines or gold for americas war industry!
- (World) Galactic War II in space!
- Nations involved

100%: USA, GB, France, Italy, Third Reich, Poland, Russia, Japan, China, Finland

Maybe in a later version: Thailand, Norway, Canada, Hungary, Phillipines, Others

One threat to guide them all, once fate to bring dread
One war to slay them all, once humanity's lost ahead.


RP Mod:

- Unique Story in a futuristic space (still featuring authoritarian regimes and free people)
- RP policies, biases and racial features (no balance, only logic)
- Race rebuild to "Ideology"
- Several self created national emblems and flags
- RP feeling through nationalized names of state and characters

I will not add unique ships apart of the germans because I am not good at ship design.

You are free to submit ship and race designs though.

Very nice. Now I'm really interested. How many factions do you intend to do? You could easily fill all 20 slots with applicable "races" if you have the time. I dream of the interstellar battle of midway on one end of the galaxy, and the great seige of planet Stalingrad on the other!

Really great idea for a mod. IMO, something like this doesn't really need new shipsets. They help, but are not necessary.

If you can make a systems.txt file for it as well, you can put names like Midway, Carentan, Guadalcanal (sp), etc... Would be awesome to have locations of battles that we recognise. Realistic, maybe not, but would be a nice feature.

Ever considered to get inspiration from The Mutant Chronicle world ?

Introduction :  "Since the exodus from Earth the traditional nation-states of the world have merged into five huge megacorporations: Bauhaus, styled after the culture of continental Europe, the American-influenced Capitol, the Japanese-themed Mishima, the British-inspired Imperial, and the ultra-secretive ambiguous Cybertronic, all of whom use private military forces to fight for resources. Luna (the Moon) itself is considered to be neutral ground and is home to the massive city-state known as Luna City. The other major power of this universe is the Brotherhood, a fanatical religious organization formed to meet the threat of the Dark Legion, an ancient evil comprising five "Dark Apostles" and their horde of hideous mutants."
Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutant_Chronicles


Example:

Bauhaus :

Capitol :

Brotherhood :

Imperial :

Mishima :

Legionaire:

Mutant:

I like the idea of keeping with the uniforms and armaments of WWII. Even though we're talking about the distant future here, it could be an interesting design choice to 'revert' to an older style of military. The guns may look like MP40's, but they're more advanced.

Would make it very easy to find troop images also...

Well humans might become bigger - see the nazi commander - but they are not changing their form in 500 years. Therefore it is completly understandable to have the same design. The difference is the material; Nano-textiles etc.

I definetly live in the same one... I guess... but it is only forbidden to "import" these in a physical substance AND to show them in public. Your privat PC in Germany is your decision. You are even allowed to get a tattoo of it as long as it stays hidden outside. No more bathing for you!

We present to you...

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

Join the United Colonies and prove once again, that a darwin society ruled by the sucessful of indiscriminate origin is a warrant for peace and prosperity... and take all the ressources you need in the process. After all your nation comes first!?

Nice mod.

Doesn't a empire based upon a Darwinian concept (plutocracy) and "manifest destiny" of taking resources.

Seem to be a oxymoron with a racial winning conditions of "least wars in the galaxy". Perhaps control 50% of galaxy resources would be better.

Perhaps the winning condition applies more to the maple syrup worshiping canucks. :)

Your United Colonies would actually be a constitutional republic. But perhaps in a alternative timeline, the Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937 actually passes, the court became stacked, and old republican values like electoral voting was done away with a direct democracy like “popular vote”. Then perhaps it would be considered a democracy.

Still the only empire with the "world destroyer" would probably be the United colonies. Making them the shakturi???

"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." Brings on a whole new meaning.

Actually the United Colonies are the only nation of the 3 that would destroy the enemies "Lebensraum" with a WD yes. But they must be evil... the enemy.

And the racial features fit. America does not need to start a war. It either provokes them or just takes without declaration.

Awesome stuff, man. Those are some serious buffs for most of these factions in the bonus resource department. This would be perfect for an epic war on a big map. Which, I think was the intent? Well done! And moving along very speedily, too.

How can we have an all out war for long if all just break down in front of their disobedient people? And what you can't see on these pictures are their race bonuses... well not all... or their fleet specialisation... or else...

I plan to put out an early Alpha version for test playing of the big nations before christmas.

After I finish up the Poland AAR, I think a full-blown Galactic War II Comic Book/Montage PDF series might be in order. With your permissions, of course.

If you wait a year you can have 20 nations, edited gametexts, an own galactopedia and if Elliot gives me something to edit the files DIRECTLY without cracking them I would give you new ressources and more too. But until then yes you can make an AAR for the Alpha.

By the way I edited the first post with small additional information.
