the TC formerly known as HOTS
Okay, so here it is, the official
HOTS Legacy TC Status Thread!
A few of you have asked what
HOTS Legacy TC is, a few others have simply let it sit in the back of their minds, but most of you don't even know it exists, so we'll start there. HOTS Legacy is a TC for EVN that I have been working on for around 4 years. It started out as a concept for a TC for Ares around 6 years ago. I didn't like the way it worked on Ares, though, so I modified it to work with EVN. It features a brand new universe to explore, over 200 ships to fly and fight against, over 150 types of weapons, and over 20 governments to interact with.
So, what is Legacy TC about? It tells the story of the player and his/her crew as they work to combat piracy. The story starts off with the player's father being killed in combat between his ship and pirates. The player is then put in command of the ship and ventures off to avenge their father.
From that point I have only a rough outline for the story, but I can tell you this: it's the only storyline in the scenario. As my first TC, I didn't want to complicate things by writing more than one story, so the player will have one main story to go along with. However, I will set it up so some things can be done in different order so that each play-through can be slightly different than the last.
I'll be back with more details, but for now I'll leave you with the current team:
A few of you know this already, a few more may have suspected it, but let me confirm it now: DarthKev and Kronos are, in fact, one and the same. It was intended to be a major plot twist in
HOTS Legacy, but recent events have forced me to reveal this fact early. DarthKev and Kronos will remain as separate characters in HOTS Legacy, but at least you now know they aren't separate individuals in Real Life. JimmyHands is our editor (though currently AWOL). Yo Jimmy! You out there?
Edit: EVWeb has since joined the team as a graphics artist, texturing the ships of
Addendum: EVWeb is no longer doing graphics, but is still on the team as an advisor.
Edit: Here's a link to a gallery of all ships in
HOTS Legacy that I make.
