    Total Conversion: Battlefleet Gothic - BETA release available!



    Battlefleet Gothic - The Gothic Wars



    During Warmaster Abbadon's 12th Black Crusade, a large Chaos fleet attacked the Gothic sector of Imperial Space, decimating many planets and slaughtering their inhabitants.

    Battlefleet Gothic, one of the sub - sector fleets deemed to protect this region were tasked with its protection. Fifteen years have passed, and the war is still raging. The Chaos fleet, having recently been reinforced by some Traitor Legions have amounted another assault, hoping to destroy the Gothic Fleet in one swift movement.

    It seems they cannot hold out, but never underestimate the Imperial of Man.



    -- The Emperor Protects --


    This Total Conversion aims to change the way you, the player, plays Dawn Of War. Gone are the days of land battles, small squads fighting eachother in destroyed buildings, or indeed massive armies decimating eachother on fields, now war has a new meaning.

    Space.

    It's empty, it's quiet. And in it, the largest battles in the history of mankind are fought. Millions die, millions of ships are destroyed, and city-sized spaceships dominate the frame. All of humanity's enemies fight it out, from the Great Devourer to the Enemy Within. Ten races, all vying for control - total domination of space is vital to total victory.

    The ships are ready, Captain, and the end is nigh.

    Current Races:

    Imperial Navy: The ultimate in ship-to-ship combat. The Imperial Navy focuses on base building and establishing a strong defensive fortification quickly - until they advance to the highest tier, when they really come into a world of their own. Masses of broadsides, the Imperial Navy will decimate all those who come into range of their guns. Joined by the battleships are swarms of smaller ships, created to protect the bigger ships, at all cost.

    Chaos Armada: We all like to choose what path we take. The idea of paths is a major factor in how Chaos will be played. In total, there will be six paths for you to choose, whether you want to be organized, and based around the Four Gods, or Undivided, or just pirates - all is included in the Chaos race. Focusing more on fast small ships, and lots of ordinance, the Chaos will be for those who like the modern style of warfare, long range, carriers and lots of evil.

    Plus the Planet Killer.

    I'd love to play a mod on space battles based on WH40K so I hope this will be successful.

    How long have you guys been working on this mod, cause a few months to model and balance six races seems highly optimistic in my view...

    If star-trek armada worked..so will this but with better visuals and races LOL! I think it can be quite a hit. Simplistic compared to homeworld, but closer to the TT experience. great stuff I think!

  11. #11
    Had moved out to a place with no net connection for the better part of this year actually, and the BFG mod attempts of DoW that I remember were all failing last time I checked (back last winter).
    Anyway, this doesn't mean I don't want you guys to pull this off, cause I sure wouldn't mind playing BFG on my PC. Best of luck to you guys!

    They might be in this mod at a later date. For now we are sticking with the races in the game.

    I know what you said. We have a more accurate idea though.

    I meant ideas for anything, not just hyperspace.

    Dont worry.
    :focus: before finaldeath knocks at our door.

    Just to point out that it is not hyperspace, but warp travel. instead of accellerating off like you see in star trek it seems to me more like opening a portal and flying through. I dont know if that is what you guys had in mind, but i thought I'd mention it.
    Chin up you ugly bastard

    And It's pink .

    Not brilliant at my fluff but the warp is a dangerous place, many SM chapters have been lost to the daemons of the warp.

    Edit:

    Interesting Note: The Tau haven't figured out warp travel yet.

    We had that in mind, just got the names mixed up, thanks ssj4nappa.

    A pink hole appearing in space, and the ship passing through. Like those guys said.

    A fx of a giant pink warp storm/gate thing which the ship accelrates into then the same the other end with the ship coming out, same as the termi teleport in theory except that the jump anim would be a ship moving into a portal instead of a termi knealing and no deep strike flash either

    Right. As you've heard, Skillz has made a cool looking planet.

    We seriously need coders.

    Release Date/

    Our release date is now December. Definitely. There will only be two races included, tau and imperial navy. The other races will be added as addons. The campaign will be in a later release as well.

    this makes things easier and means that we can concentrate on other races like billyo to get them ready after main release.

    also means i get more time on my maps.

    we do have some people but not enough, in return for help you get to be a beta tester and have your name on the credits for the most unique tc mod for dow!

  38. #38
    I'm just guessing here, but is this taking "HomeWorld' One and two and dressing it up as Warhammer 40k in space?

    Or is this combination of Homeworld ( Like I said above.) and 'Dawn Of War'?

    I sent two amazing modeller/texturer people there sooo they shouldn't be lacking. They've already dived into the project quickly. I could always add a 3rd

    I think I must be the only slow coder in the commmunity




    Here are some ME shots of some decal and objects to show that the map side of the mod is coming together, the grav platform is just for scale.

    Um... Basically my mod is currently adding a new race to the game, the Strike Marines. Highly fast-attack race, uses a LOT of aircraft and highly specialized forces. They're basically gonna out-maneuver the Eldar even. However, they're rather clumsy in the hands of an inexperienced player, just ask all my BETA testers who say they're UP. I never lose with them though, so that's just proof that they can be very powerful when used properly.

    Later we'll add aircraft to all the other races, and maybe add a new uber *ORKY FLYIN' SQUIGGY!!!* unit, but who knows...

    I don't have anything to show of it yet, but after picking up on the rules, nabbing army lists, and using common sense, I'm ready to begin coding in earnest. Tau are partly done (nothing to brag about yet, but expect me to go on a gloat-rampage soon) and I think We're putting in Imperials next. Don't know what's going on there - I assume Space Marines and IG are put together, or if IG are even in BFG... Ah well. Here we go.

    IG, SM and the Inquisition are all in one - the Imperial Navy. Dont bother telling me about fluff, i know its not right but it helps with ease of making.
