Awakening of the Rebellion 2 is something completely new compared to version 1.1, as you now get an improved techsystem which is linked to the shipyard system, story events that let you reenact famous situations from the moves, as well as a completely overhauled balancing. Videos, voiceovers, new sounds as well as particle effects let AotR 2 become the most intense StarWars experience you ever had.
Today we are showcasing one of our favourite new mechanics, the Hero Prisoner Mechanic!
With Permadeath now in the Mod we noticed, that some missions that require major heroes can't be finished if the hero dies, so we thought, how can we change that.
Our solution: When a major hero gets killed he will be imprisoned by the enemy! To get him back you have to conquer the random target planet.
This mechanic took some inspiration from Star Wars Rebellion and is a more interesting way to regain heroes than to just wait, atleast in our opinion.
Also if you look closely you will notice that the current Space Tech Level is now show in the buttom right corner as an Objective, so it's easier to know what level you are on.
With that said, stay tuned for further updates, but mostly unit updates since mechanics are now close to being finished.
Best regards MaxiM
