Would anyone out there be interested in seeing a MACROSS II mod?
Uh, question... Are you merely asking as a curious fan. Or are you actually trying to put a mod together and have some sort of HW2 modding skills?
"Don't think of it as being out-numbered, think of it as having a WIDE target selection!"
I have some skill s although limited, seriously trying to put a game together, atleast one with just capital shipd to start, but if there is not enough interest out there then there would be no point in trying to recruit, so I'm just trying to get some feed back.
I'll leave this thread open as long as you're just trying to drum up interest and then work on it.
Not another Pop-Japanese mod...

Well, I'd use the SWO mod as a sounding board. Look at what happened to them. They got pretty far into development, but don't have the people with the time to get the models INTO HW2 or work on the animations.
I have no skills in regards to HW2 modding but could help you with a handful of basic resources. Some of the same models used in SWO would be used in a MII mod (namely 2-3 of the Zent caps), I know of a low poly vf-22, I also use the jetpack from a higher poly one as a cruiser myself , all other meshes would have to be made.
Marduk Pods and leader battloids, Emulator ship, Inges Fortress, SDF-4 Apocalypse, generic valkyrie for GNN use, GNN Satellites, Metal Siren, I'm probably forgetting something.
MII is also part of my cross-over fanfic so I need MII meshes as well.
Whats the SWO mod?
and thanks Zatch I am jst trying to see what support is out there, If enough people want it I'll star advertising for a team.
?? sorry for being so brain dead, what's macross?
The SWO mod was a mod based off the original Macross series and movie. It died because threy could not find any coders to import things into homeworld.
Ah yes Space War One, no they're not dead yet just a considerable amount of slowdown for the reasons you stated. They're still active on another forum.

SDF-4? VF-22? What now? I don't recall THAT from Macross II... Are you possibly thinking Macross Plus? It was the VF-2SS, VF-2JA, and Metal Siren in M2, with a bunch of rehashed ground mecha from the original.
As it stands, there's very little common capital ships from the SWO UN Spacy fleet that would fit into the Macross II UN Spacy Fleet. You've got the Gloria, the Herakles, the Macross Cannons, the carrier that picked up Gina's blown up VF-2SS, and several other ships visible getting blown to teeny pieces by the Marduk.
The Zentraedi / Zentran fleet had basically no changes, though we did see UNS fighters being launched from their capital ships and did NOT see any of their SWO era small craft.
Avatar you are mostly correct.
Mesh I have is primitive vf-2ss (Sylvie Gina type)
SDF-4 was the Apocalypse (A bastard child of a SDF main body and 4 Zent Nupetiet's for arms...)
OLD sdf-1 (DYRL version) also fired for no effect and then Ishtar sings that song... I forget the exact particulars...
Major Nex secretly went to the location they kept it and arrived just in time to attack the main Marduk force (no damage against the mothership).
Here is a DVD Capture they only show it from bad angles and like 3 secs... Editor was a putz and they never really did the movie justice. I think in the 3 VHS's they showed more of it.
I don't really like the design myself...

star dragon could you post a pic of the vf-2ss you have., and They are called macross cannon not SDF- anything and the UN spacy fleet had multiple ones. It by no means was a flagship but would make a great addition to any fleet.
No problem, tomorrow (off to work now)... IT's a lwo file that's been around for years.
Hmm the sdf-4 ref might have been from online rpg, I tried to find an image but only got a MII rpg site witht eh artwork in B&W so I had to make the dvd screenie. IF I remember right, the Hercules was the UNPACY flagship at that time.
Unfortunately, I'm fairly certain the SDF-4 Apocalypse name and history is fanfiction. It clearly states in the version of M2 I've seen (dub, sadly) that there are many macross cannons... and indeed, your DVD screenshot shows multiple ones.
We could debate the pros and cons of the design at some other point, but as a way of using up potentially crippled or damaged Nupetiet hulls, the four Nupetiet approach seems A-OK.
In the first battle, the twin pronged warship is called the Herakles and is referred to as the flagship. I suppose that given later on the Gloria is also treated as a flagship (seemingly unique and viewed as extra important by the characters) it might have been the flagship of the task force that confronted the initial marduk incursion.
You can count me in for a Macross Mod, sorry for going slightly off topic but on Sci Fi channel they have the Macross plus, which is call anima Mondays. But again you and count me in.
It was the Flagship
I don't want to load and post pics of all the parts. The LWO files contains like 40ish? IF you want the file folder I'll .rar it and upolad it, but I don't have a pic of the completed model (never found someone to work on it for optimizations, the back pack parts are WAY over poly compared to the rest of it for example) It needs a good reskin also...
It would be great to have a Macross II mod, can count me in.
Omni, I just sent you the valk.
Hope it works out for you cause I need that type for Sylvie, Nex, and the rest of Fairy Squad. I also need the SNN version for Hibiki and of course Marduk battle pods. I already wrote the M2 scene in my fic, now I want to make a screen of the action or even a short vid in the FAR future...
IF akt_m2 is going to make some models for this idea that's awesome.
However, what are you going to do for story? Cause basically Marduk scout forces find Earth (Ishtar lost), report back, bigger scout force attacks (Ishtar reclaimed, then rescued), then final battle in low orbit/city airspace (Ingues destroyed)...
I'm thiinking maybe the some mission leading up to the disaster at mars when they first encountered the marduk, or even an idea that maybe a small scout force encountered the marduk months before the attack.
It would be nice to have some sort of working mod for the Macross universe... the game fits perfectly for it~
