Just a random idea..
« on: July 12, 2005, 06:57:09 pm »

Anyone played a game called Haegemonia? Smiley Basically it is this top notch space galactic game, kinda like a cross breed between Imperium Galactica and some other games. It can be played via Gamespy too.

Sooooo... basically my idea is that we make The Urquan Masters into Haegemonia, replacing the old ships with new 3ds MAX ones and such. From several artwork pieces i've seen they are fantastic, and these can be implemented to replace such Haegemonia ships, all based on ships belonging to certain races.

This IMO would be so cool, 3D Urquan Dreadnoughts and fighters going against other ships in full 3D spectrum, and better yet, we'd attract many people to play this online (Haegemonia only costs a measly 5 pounds now). Haegemonia was a fantastic game many years ahead of its time in graphics and space wars. I honestly have no idea on how Haegemonia is doing, whether it is a "sold out" game, or the developers left it, or even if it's still going.

Digital Reality (Makers of the game) have a rubbish website which is "temporary". Haegemonia is said to have an expansion soon, but I don't know the release date (or whether its out). Basically its a game which seems to have vanished, poof. From far as I can tell, I don't know whats happened to the game.

Couple of shots..

I have no knowledge of 3Ds Max though, but I would hope to learn this in future. But after the UQM, maybe some of us can band together and make a worthy masterpiece to UQM based on the walker engine? (name of the graphics Haegemonia uses)

I have a copy of that one.  Definitely a sweet game with great gameplay.  The plot could use a little work though.  While it would be cool to see Star Control in that type of game, a lot of work would be needed to modify the game in order to keep the feeling of a star control game.  The originality of the Star Control ships won't translate well into Hegemonia just by replacing the art.  For example, you won't have the Androsynth's comet form.
