Been wondering, is tidal wars still a mod in production? Coz I've kinda jumped the gun and designed multiple ships and buildings, hoping to submit them to Tidal Wars, but I'm not actually sure if tidal wars is still on or not? Anyone know?

I'm the creator of the mod, n5 here.
well it is still going on, just there's no specified release date. if someone asking that we'll just use the generic "when it's done" as the answer.

also we're sorry about lack of update after that april fools one. we're actually planned an update back on May, but because I got sudden job offer that time, the mod progress were halted. as the content prepared for the update are not finished yet, we cannot deliver them in time.

anyway, if you have interesting designs for our mod, you can send them to me and I'll see if they're good for the mod. so sure, gladly send them. smile.gif

Many thanks, and could I ask what factions are used (gonna be used)? Because I've designed (haven't been able to skin(job in the way)) two Russian class ships, the 'Kirov' class Battlecruiser, and the 'Sovremenny' class cruiser, both of which are Russian built, and both have ships that have been sold to china.

And I've also had an idea for a tech building, either for ROTR or for tidal wars, that allows the construction of WWII class ships, which are more multi role and/or versatile than modern vessels, and are cheaper, from many nations; the Japanese I-400 class submarine, the British Hermes class aircraft aircraft carrier, the American Tennessee class Battleship, the German Schnellboat, the French Le Fantasque class destroyer. This is just an idea, if it isn't something that you would like in the mod at all, that's fine, otherwise I'm kinda attempting to make a mod of my own, but then I figured that I would just be trying to replicate Tidal wars.

Also I'm on credit for Internet, so I can't do much browsing, but do you have a mod page, if so could you post a link...?

about those ships, we're actually not looking for blatant WW2 ships to be put in our mod. but, if you got concepts/designs that are inspired by them they're more acceptable.

if you see on this forum main page, you can see the buttons on Tidal Wars mod forum link.
we do have moddb page and also external wiki, but the wiki is somewhat dysfunctional and we need some time to migrate it to our official mod page that is still under construction.

Speaking of which, (this is unrelated to this mod but I didn't want to start a whole new thread) what happened to ReichsMarsch? Its subforum has completely disappeared?

Direct quote from Hunter answering my question why the ReichsMarsch forum disappeared:

"Thats right, colt hasn't been on the forums since last year october and has not made any effort into contacting us about the situation.
As per agreement that means the termination of his hosting. (which i already delayed by 3 months)

I also tried contacting colt myself but no responds ever came in."

Again I have an idea for a ship(s) for an addition into the mod, but again if it isn't what your looking for that's fine.
The idea is the have a support class ship, different for each faction;

USA: Underway Replenishment Oiler; All friendly units within its vicinity are repaired, and less damage is taken when in the Oilers vicinity.

(Either Japan or China(not sure)) Munitions Ship; all friendly units within its vicinity have increased rate of fire and slightly higher damage. (Like Speaker Tower)

GLA (If its still gonna be in the game) Salvage Ship; the ship itself is (was) salvaged, limit of one unit, lowers Naval vessel build cost by 10% and offers a cash bounty for enemy units destroyed by friendly units within the Salvage Ships' vicinity.

Just an idea tho, so if it isn't something that you're looking for, I'll be able to make it for my own purposes. smile.gif

- USA have Fixer as their support unit that's pretty much the naval counterpart of the Ambulance/RepairVee. It also have other support abilities that will be revealed later.
- Japan is just a joke faction from the last april fools, so we're not actually adding them.
- We're already planned naval unit with speaker tower niche for China, so rest assured.
- Yes, GLA is still there. In fact they are the main focus for the next updates. And the salvage ship idea seems nice, we'll see if it can fits in our current design although it's most likely it wouldn't be like that.

Yeah, pretty much what N5 said. USA and China support vessels are thought out, and GLA, your suggestion sounds interesting, thought when you look at it GLA isnt much about support their forces. They have suicide bombers and trucks stuffed with bombs, tractors filled with toxins and all, but not much of support. But we will see smile.gif

And while it would be nice to have Japan here, at least in my own opinion, making a whole new faction will require a thorough planning of its gameplay, units, design aesthetics, and than making all the models and textures. Overall it is not within our capabilities unless we will be working on it for 10 years, because we simply dont have people for that.

Fair enough, ad as for Japan, ironically enough, a few of my mates and myself have stated to design the Japanese faction for C&C, but all of us a gutter grade at idea gen, so we've decided to just play RUSE, and model most of the stuff from there, and we all (six of us) hope to be able to covert the C&C gameplay into something like RUSE, with a tonne of units, and a tonne of buildings and stuff.

Then we also are trying to do something like Tidal Wars, but we are trying not to copy it more than anything, and are gonna more or less turn it into a mod series (if we get around to it). We are also hoping to include eras into our naval mod, such as WWII-Present, and also have units as tech advancements; The research and purchase of the USS Long Beach would unlock nuclear tech for ships and the NCD (Nuclear Capable Drydock) wich would allow the construction of nuclear boats, and so fourth.

Funny enough all of this came together within about 2 hours, with a hell of a lot of phone calls, texting and broken tips on lead pencils.........



Sorry thought I would let peps know of my future ambitions...... o.0

1st snip: Well, for designing for C&C, you first have to get a theme. What is this nation's playstyle? For the US, it's building and upgrading a few relatively small, multi-purpose squadrons and battle with those, as well as developing aerial, technological, and superweapon superiority. China is more based on large tank/infantry battalions with more specialized units. The GLA is even more specialized, relying on stealth, toxins, and salvage (because a toxin tractor is really only good against infantry, and Marauders and Scorpions are really only good (1v1) against vehicles.)

2nd snip: Basically how my novel began, without the phone calls or texting.

3rd snip: Hey, don't say sorry. I'm glad that you have ambitions with modding.

sorry, I haven't watched that. so I have no idea what you mean. sad.gif

about the bot, I've removed the post. and I guess I'll just lock this thread for any further necro attempt. if you still want to discuss about that tomahawk, feel free to make another thread. thanks for the report.
