>>19264200Federation captured Zaku, next update soon will feature MS like Zaku 2 and RX-78-2 according to the devs
>>19264205Zeon suits look much better when repainted in Fed colors.
What is this? I'm not familiar with hearts of iron.
>>19264200>>19264205>Alex before RX-78-2I mean, OK I guess
>>19264224World War 2 high-level military sim, big emphasis on shit like supply lines, macro strategy and making decisions to influence progression of "history" in alternative ways.
>>19264250They talked about that>Thank you! Yeah, We are working on the Model of Zaku II. Since I was new to 3D modeling, I chose the easy and unimportant Zaku I before the Zaku II and Gundam.basically they wanted to get the iconic stuff right and went for things like Alex and Zaku 1/GM
>>19264200Also they detailed how they will split the federation up>The original plan we had is that the administrative zones would separate nations under the Federation government similar to how the colonies function now. They would be limited in their military development and would have to rely on the Federation Government for support for example they wouldn't be able to produce MS. The Federation Gov itself would own the notable military bases around the world (Jaburo, Torrington, California etc) however as the war progresses the Gov would be able to assume direct control of areas that are being attacked by Zeon.And the what if factions from GG will be present in this mod>Yeah, It's possible that Garma, Kycilia, M'Quve, Delaz will create their own countries. And Axis.
>>19264200Is it worth buying Hearts of Iron for this? I'm starved for mecha games
>>19264281Could wait a bit for the rest of the models to be added, other than that it depends on how much you want a Gundam high strategy game
>>19264304maybe I'll just wait till its on sale
>>19264345absolutely, also pirate dlc for paradox games
>>19264205>>19264219Federation VS Zeon is what started my fascination with capturing enemy equipment and then using it against them flying your colors instead. I really wish more games did that. I want to get better at painting so I can get some kits of grunt suits and paint them in opposite faction colors
>>19264200do i need the base game and mod to play or do i need some DLC??
Done a few runs as Casval Neo Zeon and as "Reformist" EF. The build-up phase is really enjoyable on both sides with all the political stuff you can already do even with the Sides and Moon not having focus trees yet to add to it.For ZeonWith 12 divisions of Mobile Suits (super easy as Zeon) You can grind the Sides and their EF garrisons into dust so hard that by the time you own space you have 5k casualties to about 250k EF casualties. You basically always have enough resources to build whatever you want with Fuel being your only real hurdle since you need to rush your first Space Ship research and start building them day 1 if you want space superiority in 79 with your space fleet draining all your fuel in about a year and a half making space a real rush to take it over. Conquering space is nice and fluid and feels good but Earth has the same hellscape feel to it vanilla Hoi4 has where you need to take over half the world in order to win and their capitals after Jaburo love to swap to Islands like Australia. The ai also ain't great at actually fighting back against 200 Zaku II divisions either. Really need the M'Queve like Earth nation formables so you don't have to focus on 6 different fronts.For EFSFAppears daunting at first but once you accept your going to lose all of space except Luna 2 you can start figuring out how you should build up. I've come up with putting as much industry in Islands Nations (UK, Japan), South America, India and China, since those areas are surrounded by Mountians, rivers and Siberia making them fairly easy to defend with the Earth drop points also being fairly small and easy to surround. You will generally finish the RX-78 halfway-late UC78 but will still have some production debuffs to get rid of by the time war starts so will still be low on GM's. Same problem as vanilla and Zeon, baby sitting multiple fronts gets frustrating fast but at least you have naval superiority so won't have to worry about islands after initial setup.
>>19265339You’ll need three dlcs for the best experience, man the guns for proper ship customization. Whatever is the spy one so you can use Miller and actually get special events with that stuff and the victory one(can’t remember so AI can use MS. This one is most important and is actually on the mod page)If we had MP games going you’d only need the base since the host would probably have all of it
>>19265502The latest update seems to improve the ai at least, I know I want the other factions entirely because it’ll add more political stuff which is actually really enjoyable and also leave me with a bit less to micro manage early on. Well I guess it doesn’t matter since they plan on splitting both Zeon between the zabis and EFSF between the regional zones
>>19265218Its quite interesting this mod is willing to do captured colors, I wonder if that will extend for every suit eventually
Are these canonical
>>19266839I think so yeah. They got a bunch of those right
>>19264200Imagine being the guy in the Magella attack expected to defeat the Alex
Side factions and Lunar Colonies soon
Would any of you nice anons that play this mod consider uploading some gameplay videos on youtube or something?
>>19273932Where do I get the mod
>>19274125Steam workshop >>19273932There might be some already, but probably none on the latest versionI could post highlights the next time I play but I’m waiting on the sides update+the rest of the models so I can get real immersed
Someone please mirror this outside Steam.
Zeon MS Research Tree
>>19274183I’ll look into it when I get home
>>19274183no idea if this works but herehttps://www.mediafire.com/file/nuzcvio12wwajsj/Gundam_Mod.7z/file
>>19278421WIP Char Zaku color scheme
>>19278425>>19278421>>19278419I can’t wait to blow Zakus the fuck out with an army of Gundams
This looks pretty neat, I just hope there isn't gonna be any DMCA.
>>19279005Seems fairly unlikely, isn’t the first Gundam mod for a game. And I doubt hearts of iron is on bandai’s attention
Promising mod. Always wanted a proper Gundam strategy game.
>>19279005The Stellaris Gundam mod hasn't been taken down yet.
