Antagonist Faction Sprite Request Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm presently chipping in to provide spritework for the antagonist rework 2.0 project. The major struggle at the moment is core concept ideas for firearms or tools that fit with the various factions without just making generic guns with cool aesthetics. But that's something for coders to worry about.

Right now, there's sparseness in the antagonist rework document.

In order of priority, I need ideas for firearms/tools for the various factions, complemented with their typical aesthetic/intended functionality. I generally work better with concepts already in mind suggested by others so I don't have to go rip off other franchises instead.

Empire of Dominia: Imperial, dictatorial-fascist aesthetic. Scary or imposing-looking weapons, something shock troopers would rely on to strike fear into their opponents. Equipment reliant on dominance tactics, their empire still not shaking off the implication of slavery impacting their society.
Sol Alliance: US army-esque pink and green color scheme. Weapons are probably high firepower. Heavy emphasis on survival gear additions.
Serene Republic of Elyra: Brown, mauve, yellow, dark orange color scheme. Weapons are likely tuned to be effective against Vaurcae in some way. Similar to the SA, survival gear is preferable, as they're a former Alliance colony with similar military doctrine.
Eridani Corporate Federation: Blue, green, white, cobalt greys and blue-greens. Heavy emphasis on cybernetics, specialized smart technology. High reliance on information technology to streamline combat in their favor.

The Frontier Alliance presently is being worked on by kyres as it is their baby. I don't think he needs additional ideas for it right now as it is the most finished concept in the proposed rework document.

It is not wrong to suggest basic premise weapons from other video games, I will adapt them to be less obvious.

mmmmm, I don't know. The way your wording it makes it sound like wehrmacht nazi so and so on. that just isn't how dominia is. Dominia is neither fascist or a dictatorship. Imperial is spot on but I really think you should go for more of a roman type deal then what your describing, though without overlapping colour schemes with Elyra. Also worth noting would be:


"Tribunal Commandos

An evolution of the Unathi concept of the Guwandi, in the event that a citizen becomes mortally ill, finds themselves lacking the pride, honor, drive to live, or simply become tired of their lot in life, forfeit their possessions and join the religious Tribunal Commandos, a near-suicidal military unit under the Tribunal and Imperial Military’s dual authority. Acting as the vanguard, distractions, and expendable forces, members of the Commandos are expected to die. A dishonored person who joins the Commandos is considered to have regained his reputation while serving in the unit, whether they survive or die in combat.

It is not uncommon for young men and women with no real prospects to join the Tribunal Commandos, for a multitude of reasons. A Commando who survives an engagement is awarded a square, bronze battle medal. When ten are accrued, the soldier is offered a choice to remain as a soldier of the Tribunal Commandoe or be honorably discharged. Many members of the secretive Special Operations Group are recruited from the few surviving Commandos. Survivors are allowed to keep their medals and earn the title Ten Medal ‘Immortal Commando of the Tribunal’ as well as being inducted into the Order of Immortals. Surviving members also have their debt, and their children’s debt for two generations, removed with no conditions attached. A soldier who survives ten engagements is very rare."

So maybe some sort of choice between the kind of 'Intimidation/domination tactic soldier' you've described and the Tribunal Commandos. Hell, maybe just throw in a middle ground with a normalish soldier type.

I have never once previously seen items concerning sol with pink. I'd stick with just a basic green US marine look. Or steal some pages of uniform and urban camo from the HECU units from half-life.

 

Otherwise, looks good!

To clarify, US Army "pink-and-greens" are the WW2 era color scheme, recently permitted for wear last Veteran's Day.

Ah, sorry, I thought you meant barbie doll hot pink. Thanks for clarifying, not from America.
