📕 Description [fr]

Un mod de spring avec des unités futuristes aériennes et au sol originales, par LordMuffe.
Il utilise le moteur Spring.

Eternal Struggle : Landing Operations est un mod de Spring avec des unités futuristes aériennes et au sol originales. Son gameplay est très proche de celui de Total Annihilation.
Le joueur démarre avec un simple truck de construction, pouvant construire légèrement plus rapidement que la version normale construite à partir d'un Spaceport.
Du fait que la plupart des unités peuvent voir aussi loin que permet le tir, la reconnaissance pendant et avant la bataille est importante.
Il n'y a ni arbre de technologie, ni capture, ni résurrection.

📕 Description [en]

After working 2 years on this game i think its far enough to present it here.

First things first: its still far from finished and like my last project ( Eternal Struggle ), i doubt it will ever be 1.0. Having said that, the 0.186 version is playable and has about 22 units in one Faction to play with.

I mainly started this game/mod because i wanted to model some tank designs i had in mind for some time, and get away from spaceships. So while this mod is playable and i like working on it, it suffers from the same problems ES had. At the beginning i wanted to actually finish ESLO before showing it, but as he time passed it got more and more unlikely to finish it in the next ... well with my workspeed: decade. And since i haven┬┤t done anything big on it since 3 months i decided to post it now ( or never ) to get some feedback and hint/tips on the bug/feature stuff.
In addition to the slow workspeed i wanted a few gameplaymechanics, which i guess are possible with the magic of LUA. And since i dont know anything about this stuff, it drags a finished 1.0 far out of sight.
A few things i wanted:
- Tactical weapons/abilities like Ground Controle II ( good old Nuke, EMP, temporarily Vision, Cloaking, etc)
- third resource which you collect by killing units, used for the tactical abilities
- neutral buildings, spawned on geospots, capture for continual third resource income ( something like fibre does )
- squads
- Dropship ( units can get ordered anywhere on the battlefield )
- a gui ( tried chilli... saw much of code... panicked...)

Thing i will do:
- second faction ( made some models already... good sign )
- unit names


Gameplay

The gameplay is very close to TA atm, only a lot simpler unit-wise. Metal-extractors generate metal from Metal-spots, power plants generate energy, labs build units etc. Im afraid it does not bring anything new in this department atm.
You start with a single construction truck, which can build a bit faster than the normal version which you can build with the Spaceport.
Reclaiming units is as effective as in other TA like mods.
Since most units cant see as far as they shoot, scouting in and before a fight is important.
There is no teching, no capturing, no resurrection.


Still a work in progress, but playable.
Please keep in mind that the balancing isn't finished yet. Some units left to include.
Atm. only one side.
works best with RAI
