Title: Sea Power: Naval Combat in the Missile Age
Post by: Jarhead0331 on December 18, 2019, 01:15:05 PM
I've caught wind that one of the developers from Killer Fish, the guys behind Cold Waters and Atlantic Fleet are developing a new title that is wider in scope and closer in scale to Fleet Command...

Some tasty screen shots...

At the risk of sounding like a misogynistic cretin, Russian helos are like the drunk girls you want to bring home from the bar for a one night stand. Western helos are the girls you bring home to mom and marry.

Yes, the new team is called Triassic.  :notworthy:

They just opened their own facebook page - go like them over there!
https://www.facebook.com/Triassic-Games-105804100925194/

They are good friends who got in touch with us earlier during the Summer. Being able to listen to the input of some of the former crew at Killerfish was a dream coming true - for they are certainly among those we respect the most in this small corner of the industry, where we're humbly trying to settle down ourselves. I am more than happy now to take part to the early buzz with our meager means, and it's none too early to showcase the beautiful things they have been working on all these months. The reception has been wild so far, and it is somehow natural that people receptive to our work on Twitter or Facebook would take a liking to theirs too. Everybody knows a Tomcat is just a Wildcat with an extra crewmember and a bit more horsepower, am I right  :crazy2:
Besides, whoever doesn't like Tomcats is a heartless monster anyway, but that's another story (except if he or she likes Intruders & Vikings instead  :P ).

Finally, they are also further down the development road, and I expect them to release their game before we do, as it is much closer to a mature state. I am pretty sure the devs will be happy to come over here talk about their own work. Great guys.

Obviously, the way Killerfish split after Cold Waters is a bit on the sad side of news, but they are now making the games they love most on their own, and eventually it translates into a great thing for us users. It also means that the "other half" has been confirmed to be brewing his own game, and it could very well be about PTO  :-"  :hide:
We'll see in due time - but I cannot help but welcome the idea that all of this excitement about tactical naval wargaming we have seen as of late feels very mid-1990s-like. In that regard, it is never a bad thing to feel young again :)

Anyway, here are some other screenshots the Triassic crew entrusted us with - it's all WiP of course, but their WiP is quite a sight to behold already, if you ask me  :hug:
Besides, a well-known figure of this forum has been associated to the development process too, I suppose he'll tell you about it himself when time comes. In the meantime, just enjoy the view and stay put for their news :)

Cheers

I was wondering what happened with the Killerfish/Cold Waters thing.  That game had so much untapped potential...guess I have my answer now.

Anyway, wishing you guys the best of luck and speed with your new game.  It's an instant-buy for me (as well as The Admiral's Carrier Battles game).

Also wanted to quickly chime in and say how excited I am for this. There hasn't been a proper 3D game like this since Fleet Command (which while still fun is really showing its age). That coupled with my love for modern naval warfare has me extremely excited for this title. The screenshots look great, and if I could hazard an optimistic guess, I would say that based on what we're seeing in those screenshots that the game is decently far along in its development.

Can't wait for more news and the eventual release!

Umpty years ago, Petlyakov wakes up in the gulag with Tupolev and his design team, and mutters, "Comrades -- I just had the strangest dream about American fans of Soviet strategic bombing in the far future of two thousand and something..."

"Oh? Did we really take over the world?!"

"Maybe. They loved our bears as sexy."

@Julhelm, do you guys have a bulletized list of features/FAQ for your game anywhere? As I'm getting older, I forget where I read/heard things about what. Will the game play be similar to CW? Will there be a campaign? Will I get to lead my own maritime bomber-aviation regiment against a carrier group?

Happy Easter! This time we want to show you some of the aircraft from our upcoming game Sea Power.

The RA-5C Vigilante plays a central role as the all-weather, long-range eyes of the fleet in your inventory, with a reconaissance system analogous to that of the SR-71 Blackbird.

Fleet defense duties are handled by the F-14 Tomcat, with its powerful AWG-9 radar and AIM-54 Phoenix missiles, capable of engaging up to six targets simultaneously, and intended to counter the Soviet cruise missile threat you are likely to encounter in the game.

We've also added the Kitty Hawk class of supercarriers to give these planes something to operate from while our Nimitz model is in drydock for a little overhaul. And for those of you comrades who are into surface raiding and fire support, here's a Sverdlov cruiser somewhere in a Norwegian fjord.

Apart from that we totally revorked environment lighting and clouds system.

I feel the need...the need for SEA POWER!

Seapower was the name of a miniatures ruleset for surface combat published by Alnavco, the naval miniature maker. I played a lot of that as a kid in the 1960s and early 70s.

Ohhh I needed that. It's beautiful. Looks like an SA-2 launch... is that flat brown muck representing the Kola peninsula? I have so many more questions, but I'll wait till you guys start releasing some gameplay details.

Man alive, between this and Task Force Admiral...wow, what a fantastic time to be alive. 

I'm throwing my money at the screen.

Only just now reading about this, but are there any details about the scale/scope of the game?  Is it like the old Fleet Command games or more of a straight-forward flight/naval sim?

You could think of it as a Fleet Command-type idea built around a dynamic campaign concept.

Like the Cold Waters dynamic campaign?

Like the Cold Waters dynamic campaign?
It has elements of both Atlantic Fleet and Cold Waters, along with some new ideas.

I've been perving on here for a while but I thought I'd join just to ask a cheeky question.

What's mod support going to be like? Cold waters was great for how easy it was to change the numbers and stats but adding in new 3d models or modifying them seemed like a black art (I bow to those who managed it).

The playable subs and more mod means that I'm still playing cold waters regularly just because of all the extra subs. It would be amazing if it was easier to modify the 3d assets for sea power. I guess that you don't want to make your models too easy for rivals to steal but it would be awesome if there was an easier way to either stretch and tweak the models so that they can be made to look like something else. Or perhaps it would be possible to import basic assets that aren't made natively by you guys? I'm just spit balling and I don't know much about the behind the scenes stuff so forgive me if what I say is a bit dumb. Modding just seems like a great way to get content into the game that might not otherwise be in there.

I'm very excited for the game and wish the devs the best of luck.

^ Oh man, that is a fantastic user name!

Modding is always such an interesting topic.  As a player and customer, I'm a huge fan.  There are tons of games that are much improved by modding, and plenty of games that I've purchased, not for the original content, but the modded content.

Thirdwire sims are a perfect example of this.

In my gaming life, I 'grew up' with Operation Flashpoint/Arma, Panzer Elite and Silent Hunter III/IV, so I have a healthy appreciation for how dedicated modders can take a game and run with it to some amazing places. For whatever it's worth, I really hope the team thinks about opening up the game for modded assets at the very least - I expect it won't be long before they start amazing all of us. I think in the long run it could even translate into more sales.

Hell, the guys who make CMO began as Harpoon modders... it's a gaming ecosystem worth sustaining.

Exactly, and ditto arma. I still love the original Rome total war from 2001 and because it had an active mod community for over 15 years that kept expanding the game, although in that case I think the mods actually surpassed the Rome 2 game that came out 10+ years later.

That is indeed a good question. Let me just answer it: We plan to add full modding support. As we use Unity the way it would work is that you would have to use Unity as well and create so called asset bundles which contain all assets, including meshes, sounds, effects, textures, ... just everything. In addition to that we use ini files as well similar to Cold Waters for all the values and stats the in game objects have.

So the asset bundles to use are then referenced in its own ini file so basically you should be able to add own stuff pretty easily as long as you can work with Unity.

We will provide some guide for modding at some point and provide kind of templates as well as examples.

Every new screenshot and bit of information makes me want this game more and more. This is definitely my most anticipated war game on the horizon. The great graphics, promising simulation fidelity, and the modern air/naval setting are all things I've been craving for a long time. Couldn't be more excited for this game!

By the way, for your information Drachinifel (aye, that Drachinifel https://www.youtube.com/user/Drachinifel/about ) has recently opened a special channel on his own discord to allow us (Triassic for Sea Power, DDG for Task Force Admiral) to interact with his community. Until we get our own official discords, don't hesitate to hop in there if you want to say hi & interact.

If you have the software, this way please

It's asking me to verify by phone and I'm not at all interested in that. If some kind heart wouldn't mind keeping us unwashed, privacy-appreciating masses here informed of any Discord-confined developments in these games I'd be most appreciative.

Oh well, no worry - that's simply an interface for talking to us. Nothing much - it's more about Q&A than anything. There won't be discord-only updates for them or for us, no worry!
