  1. Here's another 2 new dev diaries from my big Civilization 2 Red Alert 2 scenario. In this fourth dev diary we hit our stride and finish off all building types - big ones, little ones, and the biiiig difficult 3x3 super skyscrapers! RA2 Dev Diary 04 - Final Super Buildings in the Civilization 2 - Red Alert 2 Scenario https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/final-super-buildings . In the fifth dev diary we finally finished all city buildings and base buildings allowing us to finalise the design of the map. RA2 Dev Diary 05 – Finishing Bases & the Map for the Civilization 2 – Red Alert 2 Scenario https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/finishing-the-bases-map
  2. Hey guys, Big update as it's been a while! I've been busy doing lots of searching and tracking down long lost mods & scenarios to rescue and upload (including some more Dune and C&C scenarios). I've also added some new search categories of interest to me and made some big changes to existing ones... - Merged C&C and Red Alert together to save space. - Merged Doom with Fallout & Mad Max under a new main Apocalypse category to save space & also added new Terminator, Judge Dredd, Zombies, & After WW3 to the Apocalypse category too. - Added a new Starcraft category and combined it with the existing Warcraft one to save space - Added a new Lunar/Moon category to the existing Mars Colonization one. - Added a new Final Fantasy category - Added a new Civ Crossover category (Mods that make a Civ game look like another Civ game) as I've been finding some good stuff for these and wonder if there's more out there! Regarding that rescue work keeping me busy I recently started a huge new scenario catalog & rescue project creating proper download pages at CivFanatics (even rescuing lost scenarios that are not part of this search cause I'm nice like that lol), as well as extra scenario download mirror pages on ModDB and Internet Archive Library to ensure they don't get lost again as both those sites are long living & offer free hosting. At the moment I'm setting up Civ2 scenario libraries on these other sites but I look forward to setting up these library file mirrors for other Civ game scenarios in the future. Uploading to these sites is not hard (I've written guides over in my CivFanatics project thread) so hopefully others in the Civ community eventually follow my example and add to all these collections in the future to ensure all these great old pieces of work live on! List updates... Civ2: - Added FrankJohnson's Final Fantasy II/IV modpack to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added Jomb's Final Fantasy NES Civ scenario to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added honourable mention of the Final Fantasy III/VI scenario to the list which has no custom graphics but is the only surviving FF Civ2 scenario! - Added Jeelen's Master of Orion Jr Remake 4 scenario, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added MichaelDMcCart's Judge Dredd - I am the LAW modpack to the list (Apocalypse), & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added ParVahadar's Fallout for Civilization scenario to the list (Apocalypse), however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added honourable mention of Skulb's Fallout City Background graphic to the list (Apocalypse), which would go great with a Fallout scenario if we can find one! - Added JBG's Colonisation of the Moon scenario to the list. - Added JohnMavin's Alpha Centauri scenario to the list, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added honourable mention of JohnValdez & AndrewLivings's SMAC Project scenario to the list which sadly appears abandoned (Blake is considering fixing up). - Added Aland007's Starcraft: Terran War scenario to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added N.Chautru's Dune - Pour L'epice! scenario to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added IsaacAshdown's The Battle for Arrakis scenario to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added JamesDahl's Sands of Dune scenario to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added DavidGreenfield's CivDune scenario to the list, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added Skulb's Star Trek 2018 modpack to the list. - Added NikolaKuprešanin's Star Contact Part I: The Star Wars scenario to the list, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added Markus Schegel's The Battle of Endor scenario, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added PaulCaldwell's Star Wars scenario modpack, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added Ambra's Star Wars scenario, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added TomChoinski's CivSpace (Star Trek, Star Wars & more crossover) modpack, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added FredericMeunie's MoonLand modpack, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added DirkWeber's ST Mission on Vesta scenario, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added C&C2 Red Alert scenario, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC. - Added Wonx2150's Command & Conquer scenario to the list, which Blake is remastering. - Added Blake's Demaster of JohnValdez's Civ1 modpack to the list (Crossover). - Added KasiusKlej's Civ1 modpack (uses some of Blake & John's work) to the list (Crossover). - Added Blake's Remaster of VWPsycho1984's ToT Graphics modpack to the list (Crossover) which is in progress. - Added CarlosDiaz's Alpha Centauri modpack to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added Blackclove's Dawn/Day of the Dead scenario to the list (Apocalypse), however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added StLeo's Star Trek 7of9 (Voyager) scenario to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added Jeelen's Star Trek Voyager scenario to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know! - Added the German Babylon 5 scenario to the list, however its CURRENTLY MISSING so if anyone has it let me know!

  3. Hey guys, Some of you may have seen over in my Civilization scenario search & rescue thread here that I'm on the hunt for Dune scenarios for Civilization games. I've managed to discover the existence of a handful of Dune scenarios for Civilization 2 and sadly some appear to be possibly lost forever. Originally I only knew of David Emery's The Battle for Arrakis scenario which is on most Civ sites and is also hosted here at Fed2k in your other game modifications section. However I was recently informed about David Greenfield's CivDune scenario here at Fed2k too and have added to the collection and spread it around the Civ communities too. And I saw Dick Knisely's Islands in the Sand scenario here at Fed2k too and will try it out soon although I can see in it's readme it's not set in the Dune universe but is inspired by it. I have also discovered proof of the existence of three more Dune scenarios for Civ2 on a webarchive backup of an old Civ2 scenario site called the Zadanian League. Sadly the downloads are not backed up and all that remains is some basic info and some simple mini-map screenshots. Failed to find copies on any other Civ site either. If any dune gaming fans here have these scenarios please let me know so I can rescue them and make them publicly available to ensure they're not lost forever! Sands of Dune by James Dahl – dune.zip (293kb) https://web.archive.org/web/20030829213113/http://dsquared.fiwh.com/civ2/scenlist/d/d.php Dune - Pour L'epice! (For the spice!) by N.Chautru – dune.zip (246kb) https://web.archive.org/web/20030829213113/http://dsquared.fiwh.com/civ2/scenlist/d/d.php The Battle for Arrakis 1.0 by Isaac Ashdown – dune.zip (163kb) (not to be confused with David Emery's Battle for Arrakis above) https://web.archive.org/web/20030829213113/http://dsquared.fiwh.com/civ2/scenlist/d/d.php Finding these 20 year old Dune Civ2 scenarios is a long shot I know but I gotta try. Sooner or later someone with a copy will hopefully come along. .
  4. Enjoyed watching that. I own all the Dune games and variants but did not know about the MMO that never got released!
  5. I don't normally quote myself and I shouldn't laugh at my own jokes but.. hehehe Erm anyway.. it's just sooooooo good to hear this project is still alive, as the scarring and trauma of play testing it 4 years ago and seeing my own mother (Lady Jessica) perform a sexual act on me isn't quite burned into my brain enough yet, so I just can't wait to go through that again lol (sarcasm). Someone commented on one of my Dune 1 videos a year or 2 ago that they'd give anything for some sort of a Dune 1 remake.. so I sent him a link to this project, warned him that French people are weird and wished him luck... he didn't reply. 😂 Jokes aside a family friendly version of this with all characters remade would be good, as I was quite impressed with just how much of the actual original gameplay had been remade in-between all the rude stuff. However if the family friendly version is just the same game with the same extremely large breasted female character replacements but with sex acts deleted then umm yeah it's still not really gonna be family friendly.
  6. Sorry.. normally I write nice things when people announce fan projects but.. in this day and age talk is cheap and visual media is everything. If you're going to announce a new game then show some screenshots or concept art and setup a proper place for people to see your stuff and interact with you eg a website, a forum, or a social media page. Giving a text only marketing speech (in an age where people don't like marketing speeches) and asking people to email you is just weird and so.. I dunno.. 1997 lol. And if that's the case then PLEASE can I have access to your time machine? There are several things I'd like to go back and do lol.
  7. Which Emulator did you use? I remember trying to do that about 10-15yrs ago on Project64 and it didn't go so great lol. I remember trying to do the same on ePSXe with Dune 2000 and switch the analogue input to my mouse and having similar troubles.
  8. Very cool.. I'd been wondering how this project was going since I covered you on my Dune site years ago!
  9. files gone, pictures gone, social media pages gone.. sigh...
  10. I'm a little late to the party with this even bigger news but OMG lol.. After 25 years of nothing it really is an amazing time for us diehard Master of Magic fans! There I was a few weeks ago getting excited about Seravy’s new Caster of Magic 2 for Windows release and then something even more amazing got officially announced, as we finally have confirmation of the Slitherine mystery MoM project I’ve posted about here before! Slitherine are working with Thea series creators MuHa games on a Official Master of Magic Remake!!! MuHa are a small indie studio so sure enough it's nothing AAA however the new remake already looks and sounds pretty good! I can already see people complaining about the hexes and lack of multiplayer but neither of those bother me. You can find the announcement videos (they've remade the old intro!), some nice pictures, and game info on their new Steam and GoG pages! But I'll stick a few here too! Trailer/Intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W44WH6pEXHY Dev Interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCQHNKX6AtY
  11. Seravy's new Caster of Magic 2 (or Caster of Magic for Windows as Slitherine are calling it) has been officially released on Steam, GoG & Slitherine's own store a few days ago! Sadly my hopes for modern resolutions were dashed (it just stretches 320x200 in a window) so Implodes fan game above is still the only one that does true HD stuff, however CoM has so many other benefits eg a gazillion bug fixes & balance changes, super smart AI opponents, more spells, more buildings, more advanced game modes & options, and best of all NO MORE 5 PLAYER LIMIT!! So umm 14 Wizards going at it in one game? Yes please! Feel free to drop by the Master of Magic fans Facebook and Discord groups to discuss. Seravy himself is kindly answering questions and bug reports on the discord too! I know some people aren't huge fans of CoM's changes but maybe Slitherine will take Seravy's new engine source and do a 'MoM for Windows' one day too. Probably wishful thinking but you never know! Familiar but not quite the same 14 Wizard carnage incoming Cool new options Looks the same but apparently the new combat AI is naaaasty
  12. Big news! Looks like Seravy's Caster of Magic 2 (possibly renamed to 'Caster of Magic for Windows' now probably by Slitherine lol) is coming out of private beta and going public on steam soon. What is also very interesting is that it says on the announcement that it supports custom resizable windows and presumably resolutions! I'll try to confirm that since that would be awesome news as Seravy had zero interest in higher viewing resolutions when I last talked to him about it (eg he was gonna keep it at 320x200 still lol). Maybe Slitherine or all his beta testers kept pestering him about it and he found a way to do it lol. Either way it's great news. Modern resolutions plus full 13 Wizard slaughterthon games are gonna be epic! Have wishlisted! Before anyone asks no it is not multiplayer lol (try Master of Magic - Implodes Multiplayer edition remake for that). https://steamcommunity.com/games/1146370/announcements/detail/3055100754907446252 .
  13. I guess it's time to finally show my Red Alert project I've been mentioning! All the skills I've learned making the Heroes of Might & Magic and Command & Conquer scenarios mentioned above is now being put into the hardest scenario I have ever attempted! A 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 hahaha! Here are the first 3 dev diaries on the Red Alert 2 Siege of New York scenario. 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 https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/liberty-island-bridges-buildings . 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 https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/bigger-buildings-more-decoration . 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. RA2 Dev Diary 03 - McBurger Kong & Better Quality Buildings in the Civilization 2 - Red Alert 2 Scenario https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/mcburger-kong-better-buildings
  14. Ooooh just heard about another MOO like project called Alliance of the Sacred Suns (that seems to have been doing public betas for years under the name Imperia5x) when I saw it's kickstarter campaign. Looks like an interesting attempt at being different from regular Master of Orion like 4x space strategy games by focusing more on you the emperor.. feels kinda of like a 'Dune - Padishah Emperor simulator' managing those pesky greedy disobedient houses haha! Planetary management looks interesting, those separated regional environments and developments remind me of MOO3. A simple thing but I also love how the planets moons just swing past the camera while you're managing the world. Haven't seen any space battle footage so I dunno how that's managed. It's kickstarter period is over half way through but it's not even at half funded which is a bit worrying. It's been worked on for many years and seems so far along so hopefully the project would survive a KS failure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7_Tt9YAZ7E
  15. SCORE!! I found a Dune Civ2 mod!! I friggin knew there was one out there but just couldn't find it anywhere until now!

People also gave me some Warcraft scenarios so yup, we've got a new Warcraft section on the list too, hell maybe I should look at Starcraft while I'm at it too lol!
