[MOD TotE] Academy to Covenant

Introduction
I'm working on a mod that will replace the faction Academy to a new faction that is called Covenant, which is based on a video game series called Halo. I'm not asking anyone to help. Actually I posted this thread to let you(the community) know that I'm working on this mod. If you don't know what Halo is then check on Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_%28series%29
If you are interested in this mod I'll update this thread with pics and stuff. I'm quite a basic modder so I might need some help with modding, by asking questions. If anybody use this mod they will be able to "switch back" to Academy just by removing some files. It will take some time to get this mod working but i could allways divide the mod into different versions. To wrap things up: I will make a mod that will replace Academy with a new faction and i want to hear what you think!
By the way the reason I wan't to replace Academy is because of the big flying city in the Academy town that could be modded to look like High Charity. And also there are two rings(Halos!)that surrounds the flying city.

READ PLEASE

I would be glad to hear your opinion of the stats, to see if the stats are balanced or not. And please tell me how much gold it should cost (Thank you Alcibiades for making a exellent power calculator ). And also I could use some help making my Drone wings translucence, if anybodys interested just tell my and I'll mail the Drone texture. And I also need some pictures/drawings of a Drinol, because currently I only know about one Drinol picture... I would appreciate it very, very much! Maybe I'll even let the one who helps me playtest my mod!

Hey,I am a Halo fan

BUT great work on the way to it.

Thank you
But I think I'm going to stick with Covenant because i'ts not that many different human "creatures". I could allways use vehicles or something but it would be very hard to find models...

Now that I know there is 1 person interested this is my idea for
Lvl 1: Drone - Drone Ancient(The drone from Halo 2 hehe) - Drone Major(I'm not sure what difference i should make there ideas please)

Wait! I wont quit this mod! I have already made some work and I will finish it. I'ts just some work to do with textures, but i will figure it out somehow. Even if the textures wont look that good i will make the mod playable. If the textures are misleading to the creature it will be covered up by the name and description(Hopfully)

I'm a little on the drawing board actually but right now i just change textures and gamemechanics. I'm working on the Lvl 1 creature texture. I plan to replace the textures and that stuff of Academy with other textures that exist. So basicly I just change color on the texture and replace the original file. For example I replace the Gremlin stuff with the Imp stuff and change stats for the Gremlin to "my" custom stats. I havent tried it yet but I think it should work or else im screwed .
Hope it helped!

If you're that talented, you could have thought of a faction that would fit better in the H5 storyline.

Like free cities, ogres, halflings... anything
But anyway, good luck with your project, hope it turns out a fun mod.

it seems pretty strong. could be ok for an upgraded level 1 unit.

cost : depends on the growth? it's probably the easiest to do.

I think alcibiades made an Excel sheet for calculating cost etc., can't remember a link though I'm afraid...

So, to clarify, which creature model will you use for your level 1?

Thanks for the info Gnoll_Mage. I will use the imp model for my lvl 1 Drone. Now it looks like this:



Note that this is not the final version. I'm sorry about the quality I will try to make a better pic next time!

OK, you are right about the model issue...
But I have figured out which creatures there should be:

Lvl1: Drone - Drone Ancient - Drone Major

Lvl2: Grunt - Grunt Heavy - Grunt Specop

Lvl3: Jackal - Jackal Marksman - Jackal Warrior

Lvl4: Elite - Elite Ranger - Elite Councilor

Lvl5: Brute - Brute Jumper - Brute Chieftain

Lvl6: Not sure(Maybe Drinol)

Lvl7: Hunter - Ancient Hunter - Prime Hunter

Hero: Prophet

The only model I know for sure that will be used is the Imp model, which will be used for the Drone. And i thought I could use the Harpooner model for the Grunt, but I'm not sure. I'm a little embaressed to say that I don't know which other models i should use for my creatures.

By the way don't be so pessimistic. It will take time but I will allways figure something out!!!(Hopefully)

It's true, I admit I'm very nerdy  . But still it will be a fun mod. And I really think you should try it when it's done.

Thanks for replying though!
