The game is 2D, but all of the units, buildings, and objects were 3D models rendered as sprites.
We've got a plan for getting this thing out the door - you'll learn about it soon.
From Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels:
It's staying as is.
Doubt it has anything to do with internet; it happens in singleplayer as well.
I'm getting random framerate drops whenever I play this. For some reason the framerate just tanks then goes back to normal after a few seconds. When it's not acting up the game runs perfectly smooth, even on highest settings.
It seems to happen at regular intervals - every 10-20 seconds depending on the map - and the severity of the frame drop varies as well. On Endor it's barely noticeable, but in the Battle of Yavin I drop into single digits.
This happens regardless of graphics settings; even on lowest. Any ideas on how to fix this?
Remember that Clone Campaigns was released slightly before Attack of the Clones. Geonosis was all that existed, and they worked with what they had at the time.
Every civilization will have 4 sub-factions.
Geonosians are staying.
It is currently impossible to accurately mimic the effect the SPHAT's have in the films, and they are keeping their current mortar functionality to maintain balance with other artillery units. Adding Anti-air attacks to bombers also presents a laundry list of problems.
Assassins are only able to be constructed by one of the four Republic sub-factions.
The Jedi/Sith setup of the Empire and Rebellion are being adjusted, but we are not removing or restricting how many can be used at once.
We have plans for handling the Jedi already, but they will not be their own civilization or sub-faction.
The function of workers and resource collection is not being changed.
The ARC Troopers are some of the best units available to the Republic. They're costly to build, and require a lot of time and resources to bring up to full strength.
In this video, they're fighting against lower-tiered units, many of which don't have their planned EF adjustments implemented yet.
Not completely decided, but I would like them to.
The "Campaign Manager" tool, downloadable here:
Absolutely. No plans of stopping anytime soon.
The Repeater Trooper is now its own unit that can be created alongside Heavy Troopers.
AI is currently our biggest hiccup. There's nobody on the team who knows AI enough to work out the numerous issues presented to us. For campaign missions we can get around it somewhat with triggers, but skirmish games are going to be a nightmare unless we find somebody.
Phase II clone armor is not impossible, but unlikely unless we can find or construct a model that can match SWGB's visual style.
If everything goes to according to plan, each civilization will have a new campaign that makes use of EF's features.
We're also going to modify the stock campaigns to ensure they will support the new changes.
We don't have plans to make anything like that, but I'm sure the numerous map designers in the community will find some use for them.
Not at the moment, sorry. We're working as quickly as we can with what little staff we have.
Correct, which is why it's best to play with a teammate. However, the sub-factions do not lock you out of other unit trees. If you decide to play as an infantry faction, you will still have access to basic tanks, aircraft, and heavy weapons - You may even have a few unique units within those groups. They just won't be able to become as effective as they would have had you specialized in their respective branches.
There is no standardized faction; you must select one of the four upon reaching Tech Level 3.
There are four different types of ARC Trooper, each with a unique weapon and strength. The Vanguard is equipped with a rocket launcher that can bring down armored vehicles.
Yes. The LAAT can carry up to 10 infantry units.
The models were borrowed from the Google Sketchup 3D Warehouse.
By default the LAAT uses anti-personnel lasers for standard combat. When infantry units are loaded into it, the secondary weapon is activated - a composite-beam laser effective against troops and light vehicles.
While a number of new clone types are being added, we have no plans to modify the default clone trooper graphics.
The ARC-170 is not part of the Bomber upgrade chain.
Hope you're happy now!
The speed issue is well under control.
Thinking about anything in Star Wars (especially post-1983 Star Wars) for more than 3 seconds causes the entire premise to collapse. Best not to worry about it too much.
Ultimately, our goal here is just to make a fun mod, with something for everybody. Personal feelings about the overall universe are largely irrelevant.
