Hey guys just wondering if anyone thinks it is feasable to create a mod for this like wing Commander Armada.
I loved that concept but I would want more features like
types of cargo,
even starting a pirate Fleet,
Pilot managment, stats ,
Capturing enemy ejected pilots to get info on enemy location
I won't say it is completeley impossible, since there is a guy on the HLP forums who created a Freespace2 RTS demo back in 2008 (and actually I think that mod died in 2010 ). It just requires a big amount of coding and scripting.
If you manage to combine that with what we have... well, it might be possible.
I just don't expect it to happen anytime soon, that would be years of work and you would need programmers and FS2 scripting experts to do it.
For me the next goal is multiplayer. As soon as the source code is released and my Kilrathi mod is done I will try to find others interested in Saga MP and do it. Making MP possible was one of the main reasons why I joined the team back in 2006 and although I understand why it was one of the features that were dropped during development (in 2007 or 2008 IIRC) I still very much want to do it.
I hope there will be others who agree with me here, since my skills alone are not sufficient to pull it off.
