A new format / A new idea

Well, after a short hiatus (a month and a half isn't bad in the online free industry) I'm back to continue work on the mod.  

On my way home from work today, I had an idea.  I'm working on this, and I am not really getting any information from you, the community.  What do YOU want to see in the Xeonforce mod?  What kind of things do YOU think should be in here?  Should the Zeon tech tree work off of tech levels or off of researching certain parts and units that require these parts can be purchased once the avalible parts have been researched?  

Any comments or thoughts are welcomed here, I'd love to hear your ideas.  Email me at with your thoughts if you wish to help on this.  Remember, there are no dumb ideas, just dumb people that suggest them.

Can I still get the Alpha version of the game?

I think the units should be built based on tech level while the more advanced unit such as the nightingale needs to have parts research in order to be built

Ok, not a bad thought, but at what point does the unit build go from tech level to part based?

As it stands now all of the units are based off of parts and/or abilities. You can't build a nightingale for example without the new-type traning being done. You can build the Nieu-Zeal without new type traning though (because the zeal didn't require a new type to use, obviously).

I guess only those hero units needs to be part based.

For Nieu-zeal although it doesnt require a newtype but its detectable arm uses a "half control" system to control it which would be otherwise not possible if you are not are newtype and the Nightingale was equipped with the new Psychoframe
