I am looking for feed back of what people think, suggestions, criticism, maybe even support. If you want to help I would appreciate any assistance I can get. Here is my idea: Using the game War Hammer 40,000 Dawn of War as the base for a Beast Wars modification. There would be no base building, but instead your base is your sides crashed star ship. The game has a great system for infantry allowing ranged and melee weapons, and tons of particle effects for most transformers to have unique weapons. The game can run on most computers, and has a decent modding community. I would like to stay away from pure canon, but instead give an updated/personal look. I don't want to use Transmetal or Transmetal II, but instead the characters be redesigned with some inpiration from both; the beast modes would be in the general shape of the creature, but with robot material look. Instead of hand held blasters I would like make the right arm transform into the ranged weapon, and the left transform into their melee weapon. I would to not only include the original cast, but community developed transformers if possible. The game would be like a battle of heroes with point control; energon and crashed statis pods would be the points to capture and hold. I would like to stay close to the original story, but certain things could be twisted within reason. Instead of individual statis pods I figure large statis escape pods that contain 10 protoforms, but only gives one protoform every few minutes it remains held. To build a unit requires lots of energon, and one protoform; some more powerful units might require two protoforms. I figure instead of having transformers immediately die, instead they go into stasis lock for a minute before actually being lost, but one would have to use a medic or commander to revive them from stasis lock, or they would die. The transformers would have energy that would slowing degenerate while in robot mode, and degenerate much faster near energon points, but regenerate while in beast mode; once the unit reaches zero energy they slowly lose health. Robot mode would have very little if any health regeneration, but beast mode would have much higher. Both sides would start with their respective crashed ship, commander, and resources for four other transformers. The bases should be strong enough they can't just be rushed, but can be taken down by a large force later game. Most transformers that poses the ability to fly will be like the jetpack troopers in dawn or war; they have an ability to jump jet over to a target location. Some transformers that have flying beast modes and bot modes will be air units in the game flying all the time. Depending on the engine, Ariel units might not be able to make revivable.
