Land Bases and AW

Just thought I would post up a few pics of the latest addition to the game, the After War Land Bases.  These massive ships are different from the space ships of the UC or SEED in a few different ways. 

First of all the Land Base is exactly that, land based, so it is not a unit that will be able to fly across the board and ignore terrain.  Not that you will want to be using it much in that way, the Land Base is not an attack unit.  It is a mobile factory for producing the Gundams of the AW line.  The one we have decided to go with for now is the Tenzan class Landbase.  It only has a single weapon on it, and this weapon is for defensive purposes only, however it does have a few advantages.  For one it is able to repair any vehicle based units around it making it a large mobile repair pad.  It also can produce the Airmaster, Leopard, or Gundam X depending on what version you go with, meaning that the Tenzan A produces only Airmasters where the Tenzan X can make Gundam X.  You get the idea.  Also the Tenzan's don't make units in the traditional way.  Unlike the White Base or ArchAngel, the Tenzan does not have to land to make units.  Instead, units are produced through a unique upgrade system.  You click on the upgrade for say Gundam X.  The Tenzan makes the Gundam X as an upgrade, and once the Gundam X is made the Upgrade that was used to make it is once again avalible to make again.  As it can do this while on the move, it gives it a unique tactical advantage. 

Also, all of the models that are going to go into AW are now in the game, meaning that all I have to do now is work on the AW upgrade and tech tree system and we'll be good to go.  I will keep everyone posted.

Awesome ! Been playing the mod for some time now, and it sure kicks ass

Can't wait to play with ZEON-ZAFT though, that'll be awesome...

I just found that the way to gatter resources won't work on maps where there's no tiberium fountain, no big deal though i guess...

Cheers and fire it up !

Thank you for your comments. As far as what units will be in the game, we're trying to put every unit THAT MAKES SINCE into this mod. That means that some units will be in the game (Nu Gundam for example will be in the game, we're just working on placement of it now) but Zeta will not (The Zeta gundam was never used by the Earth Federation so it makes no since to put it in as a usable unit by the Earth Federation does it?). I hope that clears things up some.

And Edrei, I too can not wait to get to Zeon. They have always been the side I agree with in the Gundam Universe ever since I saw War in a pocket. That 6 episode mini-series was the turning point for me and a very spicific point that I have always believed, a great pilot in a standard mobile suit can out-do a standard pilot in an exceptional mobile suit given the right time to prepair and that's the feeling we are going to try to capture with Zeon.
