About Gundam Project: Universal Century
Gundam Project: Universal Century (GPUC) is a Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War (RTS) total conversion modification loosely based on the Japanese animations Mobile Suit Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th M.S. Team, Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War In The Pocket, and Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory.
For the first time in a Gundam game, leap into the commander’s seat of your favorite Earth Federation Forces and Principality of Zeon mobile teams in this real-time strategy PC game. Build your own team, lead them throughout the Earth Sphere in a number of different mission types, and battle it out with friends over multiplayer. Features Universal Century mobile suits and mobile armors from 0079, 0080, 0083, plus original vehicles and units created specifically for this mod.
The project goal is to create a deep emphasis on tactical combat, and reduce the distractions of large base management present in WH40K: Dawn of War and other RTS titles. While including our own set of pre-designed objective based missions, and will heavily rely on the ability to command your teams through various types of scenarios.

Is this project going to have space combat or ground combat?
The initial releases of this mod will include a heavy focus on ground combat missions across the diverse environments of the colonies and the Earth. At some point, time will be invested into possible space driven combat, and its overall presentation. Till then we’re focusing with keeping the units on the ground.
