Well things are moving fast.. V0.40 will have MUCH MUCH more than only some indie pirates... they will also have ENSLAVED PIRATES.
ENSLAVED PIRATES?? Who enslaves in dominions 3... can it be...
YES, R'lyeh is back, and in space
so a 2nd race will be coming in the next version of this mod

Why R'lyeh as 2nd race you might ask (or not, I'm talking anyway): Well sprites are the limiting factor in all this work and since I already had sprites for the indie pirates (and the indie aliens) I though why not make those Illithid slaves.. fits the lore perfectly it's what Illithid do in their weekends (and the rest of the week).. and I figured the Illithid wouldn't change much just because they are taking over a galaxy.. so those sprites where also easy to get.

Once I get the Illithid mindblast artillery working (don't ask) the race will be put on the market. (For the fans: yes they will have a void gate.)

So next patch real 1 vs 1 games with 2 completely different nations can be played on the beautifull solar system map.

I'll try to come up with some ideas this week, Aezeal. I've got a few nation ideas floating around in my head, and I'd like to do some space monster graphics.

By the way, if you're doing space pirates anyway, how about...I dunno...Ice Pirates! with robots! Led by Robert Urich! ok maybe that's too far...but, Ice Pirates!

Is that a new version of the map? Because it is hilariously awesome!


I've always enjoyed pop culture spoof/reference, like having a hero named Robert Urich (or some derivative thereof), just for the fun of it. One of the human factions could get a Johnny Rico hero too, and so on.

New version? The pic you see in the first post is the new map and I've populated it with aliens and space eels.. it seems all the indies are very very much overpowered on this map though, even with the very decent Ulmish troops.

Next version the pirates will come.. they too where very powerfull (indies with 2 10 dmg AP ranged weapons really kill a lot very fast.)
So now the indies have lost a weapon (2 bad for R'leyh though since they use the same fighter .. but Ulm should have the better fighters anyway.. and Ulm pays for it.

R'leyh gets a control space eel spell though.. which should be nice too use

It is possible to create custom, or modify existing, magic items and assign them to indies. Just look at my Antilarium metamap.

Creating a .dm file depends somewhat on your operating system, but it's just an ordinary text file with a funny extension. I suspect a "rename" of a plain text / notebook file in windows explorer will do it, it certainly will in Mac OS.

in unix it's "mv filename.txt filename.dm"

with wordpad I can just directly save it as xxxxx.dm

anyway to me it seems I can only create weapons and armor with much variation... not much more.. the fun effects like regen, flying etc etc are tehre ways to get that?
