Regular visitors to my blog may have seen on my What Is Blake Playing Right NOW? page that I’ve been quite busy with Cilization 2 modding as part of the HUGE new WIP Civilization section and youtube series I’ve been working on for ages.
Well I guess it’s finally time to show my next project I’ve been hinting at in previous Civilization posts! All those skills I’ve learned making the soon to be released Civilization 2 Heroes of Might & Magic 2 and Command & Conquer Africa scenarios are now being put into the hardest scenario I have ever attempted! I’m pushing even further into the Command & Conquer and Red Alert universe and creating a big Civilization 2 Red Alert 2 Siege of New York scenario where you’ll be battling it out in city streets between huge sky scrapers.. and yes I know I’m crazy as that’s totally something the Civ2 engine wasn’t built for haha! And I also know this is 20 years too late for anyone to care about it lol!
I’ve created a ModDB page for the project with dev diaries covering stages of development. Figured I’d post them here too, so here’s the first three dev diaries on the Civilization 2 Red Alert 2 Siege of New York scenario.
EDIT: Dev diaries 4-6 now posted HERE
Disclaimer: Hopefully the final product will be waaaaay better than all these WIP test shots but I gotta start somewhere haha.
In this first dev diary we look at experimenting with Civ2’s terrain limits & using some sneaky tricks to begin creating a Red Alert 2 style city map with Liberty island, bridges and buildings.
RA2 Dev Diary 01 – Liberty Island, Bridges & Buildings in the Civilization 2 – Red Alert 2 Scenario
In the second dev diary we look at adding bigger buildings, Command centers with walls, and lots of other nice decoration trying to push Civ2’s terrain limits.
RA2 Dev Diary 02 – Bigger Buildings & More Decoration in the Civilization 2 – Red Alert 2 Scenario
In the third dev diary we look at adding special fun buildings like the McBurger Kong and Petrol Station, while overhauling all previously made small buildings to much better quality.
