    Basically an API or framework that allows each team to have different models for the units, therefore it would be possible to make mods like A Star Wars one that makes Star Wars vehicles and units for one team, with the same units on the other team but with different models so we could turn the Ant into a TX-130T fighter tank and on the Rebels side it could be the AAC-1 speeder tank, and so on and so forth. This also could work with other mods such as the Orbital Warfare mod and make them Star Destroyers and stuff.

    Quite a while, however I'm not asking for the models, I just want an API to allow for this. I think it would be a good start at something, and plenty of people could still have their own projects with this, it would allow for alot of things to happen like remake C&C with the models and so on.

    But it does already work...

    You only need to extend all units by one of the custom unit type flags, and also add that flag to the corresponding commanders you want to lead that faction.

    Now as long as players of a single team only pick commanders from a single faction, they will only have access to that factions tech.

    Yep, in fact at one point there was a team working on this with me included, but I guess we all ended up getting sidetracked/busy. It also would have included different balance for the units.

    I was working with them, apparently some people who were helping kind of stopped talking. Plus I haven't heard anything in the discussion in a while. =o

    Yeah I've got a few people working on it with me currently. Had to open a separate yet another chat due to ubers frankly stupid chat member limit. Unless you guys are willing to join a g+ community our communication will be split up like this.

    Anyway yeah we are working on mod to add an all new faction to the game. Not revealing more info though till we have some more stuff Ingame to show off :)
