Next, since it's always nice to have some eye candy, a shoutout to Mister-Dan, a forum goer and artist who did two great-looking pieces for us! Entitled "The Sentry" and "The Grenadier" respectively. They've got great color and brushwork and the team is honored by the gifts! Visit www.isotx.com to see the other!

Next, the news most of you have probably been waiting for: the changelog for Iron Grip 1.31. It's too long to post here on ModDB, so visit THE ISOTX SITE for more details!

Finally, a bit of comedy. Puzzlemaker, one of our über-1337 coders, has been experimenting with squad-based logic for Iron Grip 1.5. There were some bugs and flaws in some of the initial attempts, and I sometimes wonder if he's secretly a German mad scientist. Apparently one of his first tries to do squads involved feeding the poor conscript guinea pigs Teleportation Caffeine Juice. Fortunately, most of the conscripts survived the cruel experiment (only to be gunned down by Ronius Diagran a few seconds later...)

That's all for tonight ladies and gentlemen! Enjoy the updates, and I'll see you on the battlefield!

Does this mean no squad system? :(

There will be a squad system :) This was our first step into the squad system, it has improved a lot since then.

The squad system prototype is like a bizzare version of Conway's Life :P
