Welcome to the second status report of the Future Wars Tactical - Simulator Mod
After the release of the intro video for the next version, we will give you some more details.
There will be 6 complete races in the Mod, as well as pirates and minor neutral ships of different races. In the upcoming version we have also fixed some points of criticism of the previous versions such as problems on the diplomats menu:
In addition we have also tried to make the races more varied. We have not only focused on the research :
but also equipped the races with some differences in equipment:
Furthermore I can now announce that this new version will be the final version of the Mod.That means it will be in German and also in English. You can choose you language during the setup menu and it will install your selected language.
Unfortunately we had to remove all the custom made maps from the previous version which caused problems in stability. But that should not be a problem, because there are already enough maps.
At the moment I've started to prepare a beta test which hopefully removes the rest of the bugs.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Future Wars - Tactical Simulator. We love games like Sins of a Solar Empire that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others.
