Default New Project

Hi there ^^

I plan to create a Game based on Savage2 and those Questions are raised in my Mind:

1)How realistic is a release from the SourceCode (sometimes)

2)How easy is it, to add a new Gameplay Layer, like in Advance Wars and Battle Worlds? Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaG8kHlrYSc

(I wish to use the current Gameplay as Overworld and a tactical round based Gameplay as a special Event Mode.)

I am experienced in modding with the Warcraft 3 (Frozen Throne) World Editor.

3) I search Modders who help me with this ambitious Project.

Sorry, but you'll probably have to find a different game to modify. The Source code won't be released any time soon and, without it, it will be really hard to make something similar to the video.

Savage 2 has a lot of technical problems, and one of them is that modding is very very broken. It might be possible, but it would be a terrible choice of engine. You'll run into a lot of problems you shouldn't need to run into.

You could check out Savage 1, for which the Source is available, but I don't know how flexible it is. Or Natural Selection 2, maybe. Someone else here might be able to suggest other games that would suit your goals.
