Angels Fall First: Planetstorm is an objective-based assault game fought both in space and on the ground. Featuring totally original art and completely new game types, we take you from flying gigantic capital ships, piloting fighters, and manning turrets to the traditional vehicular and infantry combat, both planet-side and inside the starships themselves. At your command are more than two dozen ships and vehicles, including all original weaponry, 3 maps with full bot support, two custom characters, with more on the way. This is a <b>total</b> conversion mod in the fullest sense of the word. Welcome to Planetstorm.

Honestly, we're still holding out for the RC3 version, which will hopefully be available in the next few days. It has some last minute bug fixes. So... if you guys can handle a wee bit more time waiting. It would be for the best to avoid having to redownload versions. :)

Nevertheless, if you guys have the bandwidth and/or the patience you can try out the RC2 version for the moment.

Apologies for the confusion, we're pretty much reduced to a bunch of frazzled devmonkeys the last few days. :P And as always, thanks heaps for the support.

Well, I tried it. It has no maps, I can only sit at the main menu, attempting to install it to normal UT3 instead of Steam.

install it in it's own folder, NOT in your ut3 install folder, eg as in the installer default or an equivalent on another drive

Just got it running and what not. By the way Spycon, run it as an admin, it'll fix a lot of the issues.

A few things I want to say, looking at this and the alpha side by side, this is SO much improved. It's amazing. Now, the one thing that amazed me, is the size of the map. I was playing Errah offline, and forgot that it was just one map in a game. having 64 player battles there would be epic. Even better would be if you can get 128 players.

In the end, the mod is amazing, and once you get the faces and what not done, it'll be even more amazing.

Yep, character models will be in by phase 4 (as well as the high poly ships). The concept art for this release actually shows how the improved ULA troop model will look like. It's already modeled and awaiting texturing and rigging. More will come very soon. :)

^-^ Yes. Remember our previous updates with the high poly ship models? Those will replace all the ship models currently ingame.

You know, most of those ships are still lowppoly. They just look so awesome because of ungodly texturing and bumpmapping skills ;P

well the models we have are from 2004, our homeworld mod. having high poly ships wont make things run any slower, we'll make sure they have LODs etc.

we wouldnt do **** if we couldnt do it wicked :)

symptoms: Dose not save settings.
dose not detect any maps in the game.
reproduce the problem: install vista and then install the mod on the same drive as vista.
How to fix: install on different drive :D
the problem is all the stuff on the drive vista is installed is read-only unless you run as admin, but seems AFF dont like to be runed as admin(got an error)

we have several members running with the mod installed on the same drive as vista, it may be a problem with only your setup. i dont wish to dismiss your problem, go check out our forums for support - but i dont wanna scare vista users with only 1 drive.

Support depends on the filename of what you downloaded. Sounds like a RC1 issue, not RC2.

Yes, the server browser for UT3 will do that. You'll need to hit Join IP and enter the information.

Iff it didnt work with the Planetstorm launcher or a normal link try adding this :
"X:\...\Steam\steamapps\common\unreal tournament 3\Binaries\UT3.exe" -mod="C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\Affgame" -solomod

using the full path might work
