Announcing Return of Cerberus
« on: December 18, 2009, 04:03:23 AM »
For those who only visit Game Warden, this will be new. For others who visit from Sectorgame, this may be familiar. This is the original Sectorgame thread:

http://sectorgame.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=62278&sid=d8897b26ec166e168cb9ee644ab8b30d#62278

"I'm announcing the return of Cerberus, a project I commenced well over a year ago and left idle due to development/real-life issues. This is not just a return, but also a reboot, and I plan to see this one completed.

The new Cerberus plot is set thirteen years after Capella in the Altair system. The player is taking part in a Terran-Vasudan exchange program onboard the GVD Nafretiri, flagship of the 16th Vasudan Battlegroup. What starts out as a renegade threat will soon turn into something much more extreme.

This is what the project aims to feature:

-A conflict bringing both Terrans and Vasudan forces together against the returning Shivan foe
-A lineup of old and new craft with several new weapon technologies
-Some new effects and audio enhancements
-A completely new plotline with character involvement, largely inspired from the Blue Planet saga by Darius and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward
-Hopefully a collection of new combat, briefing and other miscellaneous music tracks
-A reinvented new alien race

And in response to an earlier question by Starlord:

-The SJ Dante returns

I hope there are some that might take interest in the return of Cerberus or want to band together to make it happen someday. I will understand if very few take interest or place trust in this project due to failing to deliver the old Cerberus. "

You may post here or on the sectorgame thread if you have any questions or wish to know more. Alternatively, you can message my profile on either site for details or if you have interest in the project.

This update is on the original thread present on sectorgame:

As a first update, I'd like to mention the early details of the modification. To make planning segments of the story easier, it is being divided into ACTs. The first ACT, titled "Emergence" in honour of the original Cerberus, has finished being scripted and is under construction. Without delay, here are the details for ACT 1:

"Emergence begins in the year 2380 A.D, approximately thirteen years after the Second Great War. The setting is the Altair system, under the protection of the Vasudan 16th battlegroup. Leading the way is the GVD Nafretiri, a Hateshsput-class destroyer. About to take place is the quarterly Terran-Vasudan exchange program. Joining the Nafretiri are three Terran pilots from Vega's training academy who would've otherwise joined the Terran 7th fleet in Alpha Centauri. You play as Wolf, one of the promising three pilots. Accompanied by Avatar and Ghost, you will wade your way through the events waiting just ahead."

ACT 1 will span approximately seven levels. Each aims to be different in terms of mission type, to create a lot of variety, so rarely will two levels seem the same.

No forums dedicated to Cerberus exists at this stage, but if you would like to contribute, you are more than welcome.

Edit:

When I mentioned contributing, I meant like:

-Volunteering for Fredding levels
-Suggestions/Ideas
-Textures/Effects/Interface/Hud stuff

Anything like that if you really feel up to it.

Excellent news!

Besides, you mean the SSJ dante right? or do you classify it as a "normal" juggernaut? It's quite big I hear...

Yeah, I mean the SSJ Dante, and I decided to make it a normal Juggernaut. All Juggernauts are huge as you no doubt know.

Oh, so is it superior to the sathanas, or simply "complementing" it then?

If you compare the statistics of the Sathanas to the Dante, then yes it is superior. By default, it is way more superior. I want to have a Shivan foe that can be defeatable and formidable, and the Dante is the answer. Then again, I could always go with the Diablo. But I haven't found a use for the Diablo, so I dont think it'll make an appearance.

NO, please no! IMO, the dante is MUCH better than the diablo... I always found it an... oddity with it's curious arm patterns...

Also, do you plan on multiple dante class juggs or simply a shivan fleet centralized on one of them?

Now that would be a spoiler. I can say this much. You'll meet at least one Dante. There aren't plans for any vessels of similar, comprable size or strength at this point of time.

Be sure to check the official forum reguarly as updates come in. A fair bit is starting to pop up on it.
