Yo. I'm Vengefulnoob, community manager for the upcoming indie Red March. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have regarding our project, or indeed just questions in general, I will help where I can!
Thanks comrade, we like to think it's rather original :)
Thanks, Comrade! We're doing all we can to make it even more awesome as time goes on.
As it stands, we're planning to have the game on Steam, probably on Early access, and yes, we do plan to support modding in every way we can. If we stay on the unity engine, then there will be unity tools available, and if we change engine, if we get enough money from crowdfunding, we'll make an sdk.
JUST A CITEH BOYEH,
BORN AN' RAISED IN SOUTH <CENSORED>,
HE TOOK THE MIDNIGHT TRAIN GOING ANYWHERE...
There's coffee in that nebula!
Thanks a lot! We're happy to keep on doing what we're doing
Thanks man, doing what we can!
You raise good points, Darth, however we are indeed, basing the alternate history scenario on an alternate iteration of ww2. In particular in the Red March timeline, the USSR understands the importance of supporting Eastern Europe early on in the war for any future hostilities, going so far as to relieve Warsaw. In addition, numerous pre-war designers are still alive and tactics and strategy more refined than they were in our timeline.
As for pro-Pact bias; we're working on it, as you can see, our pact section is much shorter than the UN one, so we have little mention of leadership, hostile management or the general dictatorship of the Pact, and that is problematic since we want the UN and Pact to be equally as bad as one another, but for wildly different reasons.
I still have copies left! I will be handing out the last at the main entrance at 5!
Quick update: due to queuing issues, the meeting will take place around 10.30 instead; Apologies and look forward to it!
I can't be the only person to find it hilarious that the TV tropes page has added a definition of the third faction. Whoever chose that trope, we salute you!
It's not from the mod dev team, just someone putting across their ideas.
Funnily enough, murader, no! The idea was pretty much made up on the spot, as it fit the bill perfectly for an alarming news event that didn't seem likely to lead immediately to the next world war without further broadcasts showing a deterioration of events. That said, we are also looking at some of the more daring actions from the Cold War and prior as possible material. Hope that answers your question :)
Any word on what's intended for tyranids? As an avid player I'd like to see something like the haruspexes or hive guard, along with the harridan.
Creator was clearly outside of synapse.
Is their superweapon talking their enemies to death?
Bass, If you'd like I can send you some files I have for a working IL2m3 with the NS-37mm? The Cannon itself is reasonably accurate to the NS-37 and can be tweaked to the parameters of the Bordkannon (It will just about penetrate a tiger, but struggles to do so, similar to a sturmovik in a shallow dive), and the weapon can simply be added to the stuka def file as desired.
I also have a number of weapons I've been working on for Soviet aircraft, such as the VYA, SHKAS, and PTAB, if you need any assistance with those.
About the Kanonvogel, I've been working on an IL-2M with 23mm VYA cannon in my spare time, how did you get the cannons to fire both barrels in sync? It's driving me mad because the weapon I've made is perfect apart from the effect!
Fixed the media by making it a youtube video instead of using moddb's crummy audio uploader. Now to go to sleep...
Thanks man, we're just trying to do our bit to keep the genre alive :)
Thanks a lot man, we really appreciate it!
As for the third faction, my lips are very much sealed, except for the fact that when I found out the details about them, I almost crapped my pants. Don't forget that if we do get enough funding, there will be another 3 nations to reveal as well!
Oh and thank you very much! You're very kind, we and our brothers at Rogue Republic appreciate all the support that you, our fans, give us, it really does help!
Welcome to the March, Comrade!
That is indeed the case, the UN is pretty much the analogue of NATO, but far more unified and therefor a great deal more raucous. With France and Britain still major powers, there's a lot of friction between the allied powers, and the UN is only supposed to last as long as the Pact is still a threat. In fact, there are numerous factions working in all nations, at all levels of government, each with their own aims and ambitions, many of them conflicting with one another, some of them even running contrary to the practices of the UN. But of course in the Red March universe, such organisations are the plain superstitions of lunatics... right?
As for more Western, well there are many South and North American nations involved as a result of the direct threat posed by Pact members, Brazil being an important example as it is surrounded by Pact nations. Mexico is another willing participant, though some crazy dissenters claim that it was practically annexed because of pressure applied by the US Oil Industry.
I'd really love to see the Bm-8-48 if you have time for another katyusha!
Happy Birthday Comrade! If you require writing and British V/Os, I'm able to help.
Hey Normand, love your work! Just wondered if you'd consider putting in the Bm-8-48 katyusha variant? I've yet to see one modelled in 3d!
