No thanks. Beta 5 Tech tree Lebanon 2002
Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Work resumed for Beta 5

15 comments by PlayerHOI on Sep 1st, 2014

Hi everyone,

The recent military campaign in Israel is now over and I can go back to work on the mod. I have to tell you now that this has delayed the release of Beta 5 significantly but I will try to put in the hours to make up for lost time.

Expect upcoming dev diaries which will show off the new tech tree and how it will be handled. Beta 5 is the beta which in its heart hopes to finally make the game playable for those who at the very least play a large/security council country so after the tech tree is finished and the production and units are finished Beta 5 will introduce into the mod OOB's for these countries with more followed afterwards.

In general I would like to jump start the mod to a playable state which means that I have chosen not to release an update that fixes issues with resources and position fixes for the map. Releasing this update will just force you to redownload the mod with not enough gain as far as I can see it. It will also force me to spend time supporting the update and issues that might come up with installing it.

Due to these considerations all of these fixes will be merged into Beta 5 along with all the additions this update will bring to the mod, the following is a to do list which I hope will be fully done for Beta 5. Please note that I can't promise that everything on this list will be done but I will obviously try to squeeze in as many of these as possible.

Priorities for Beta 5:

1. A new reworked and functioning tech tree.

2. New balanced units.

3. New AI behavior that will build and use new techs and units.

4. New tech distribution for major and secondary power nations.

(USA,Brazil,Canada, Russia, India, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Japan)

5. Some new events for the years 2000 and 2001.

6. New production interfaces.

I also want to drop a note regarding some feedback I have received recently and I will split these into two major points:

1) Please DO NOT expect me to stop everything now to include the recent crisis in Ukraine, I trust most of the people who play these types of games understand that all these happenings in Ukraine are driven by events that have happened BEFORE it all started so its a bit naive to think that a mod that starts in 2000 will just skip directly to 2013 without taking note of what happened before that.

2) I agree with some of the feedback regarding some of the regions of the map in the sense that they don't have enough provinces and be sure that if that area has played an important role during the timeline of the mod provinces will be added to provide strategic warfare in those areas... Iraq and Georgia come to mind as two examples but also Syria.

That is all for now, thanks to anyone who keeps supporting this mod.

Honestly, your new map is a mistake. I like your mod and really appreciate your effort but the map is a mistake. It makes no strategic sense to have so many regions in for example southern Libya which is entirely sparsely populated desert or Saudi Arabia or Siberia yet you have greatly reduced number of regions in some dencely populated areas of Europe, especially in the Balkans where there should be much more regions like in the original (Kosovo should be at the very least 3-4 regions instead of just 1,like it was in the original). You left out some pretty strategically important regions of conflict such as South Osettia. I know your goals was to balance the chances of countries but in real world the very point of geopolitics is not every country has equal chances or is in position to become power. When making maps you should be led by population density. Where population density is greater regions should be smaller and there should be more of them. Where density is low you should make large regions.

i disagree large regions make it extreme rubbish to have fun playing wars and the game is not just about geopolitics also wargame strategie's and in real you would be able to move almost evrywhere on map therefor it's nice to have more regions more little regions you can use as bases in occupied lands or just make youre borders more like you want them to have
