I really want to make this idea come to fruition, but I have never made a mod for any game at all ever. I definitely know very little about the scope of what is actually possible when it comes to modding. I was hoping to get some feedback or advice about this idea I've got and how I can bring it about:
In both campaign modes (Records & Romance), the player can toggle between the usual battle interface (operating units and issuing orders) to operating one of the generals in hand to hand combat (dynasty warriors type game-play).
I've thought of a lot of different intricacies that could be involved in how things would work and be with this added component to the battles, but I admit, it does seem a bit far reaching for a mod to accomplish. For the sake of the argument, lets call this new possible game-play "fight mode".
I picture the mod commandeering the battle camera motions in order to follow whichever general is being operated in "fight mode" during the battle. I have no idea how I could get the mod to actually have keys command the general to swing their weapon at enemies, get on/off their horse, initiate a charge or battle formation for their own unit, use any abilities, block, counter, or any of that. Of-course, I don't even know if this is possible.
Does anyone have any advice or comments about this? I appreciate any help. Thanks!
