11 comments by Lord_Set on Feb 11th, 2015

So with the rapid progress we have been making the last several weeks, I wanted to do an update to show you and demonstrate exactly whats to be expected with this glorious upcoming release. I want to start by introducing ARC, I would elaborate further but she is perfectly capable of doing that herself.

ARC will be almost constantly communicating with you in-game giving you updates, and telling you of galactic events.

On to the asset updates. Cerberus is almost done in terms of ships. Since the last release we have added 3 more Capital ships to each faction, as well as replace all the stock ships left in Cerberus. Each ship in game has been given its own respective voice overs courtesy of MEDiscovery who has been working overtime to help get Cerberus done! I spent two weeks updating all the skins on the Cerberus ships to better emulate the ones seen in Mass Effect. Included below are some simple before/afters for two of the ships that have undergone the update process.

With new bloom shaders that we have been provided the ships now have that pop that has been missing for so long.

Included below is a small playthrough/Interview I did with Gul_Dukat of SA3 that includes A LOT of the changes that will be included the following update.

Hey guys, great mod! The Corners is a blast to play, and I can't wait to see Council and Reapers finished!

I don't know if this bug has been reported, but Batarian Cruisers are bugged - they don't fire their weapons and instead try to get as close to the target as possible - could their weapons have zero range?

Oh, and one more thing - the voice overs are PERFECT! Is ME Discovery doing all the małe voices himself? Great job!

I am glad that you are enjoying it. :)

Yes, the Batarian Cruisers are bugged. I was playing a game with Set last night and we noticed it. But thank you to all our fans who have been reporting bugs like this. It makes it a lot easier to work the kinks out. :)

Thank you for the praise! To answer you question, I do many of the male voices, though I have a small team that helps me. As of late that team has been growing, and many fans of the mod have contacted me about voicing too -- just so I can get some other voices in there.

Hi guys. Quick question. Do the Reaper "rebel" faction have their own titan as of v.3?

They do in a sense, the ability Kinetic Barriers that all ships have mitigates all damage by 70% until your eezo supply runs out. Its more lore friendly.

Set. I don't think the barriers mechanic is working on all ships. Certainly in a recent game the Destiny Ascension was not using up any Eezo what so ever. Said Reaper cut through her like butter. Now I expected this to happen as it was the Reaper Titan but it was shocking to watch it cut through her and 2 capital ships. All while being attacked by over 24 squadrons of bombers. (3 super carriers and some cruisers).

On that note 3 squadrons for the council carrier seems quite low given that it sacrifices huge amounts of health and armour to get it. 1 more squadron of bombers for pretty much the same health as a cruiser. In the lore the Alliance do create dedicated carriers for sure however the impression I had was they have considerable waves of fighters that made them worth the risk :).

Set is aware of of the DA barrier mishap. Rest assured, all of these issues will be addressed with throughout the progression of the mod. As impressive as everything looks and functions, we're still only in Alpha and in my opinion Set's work only gets better and better with each update. He's as knowledgeable of the lore as can possibly be.

Of course. Didn't mean to suggest he is not doing excellent work!! That we can almost play an Alpha with 2 effective factions (Cerberus loyal and renegade) like we would a Beta is pretty impressive. Also shows how close to the mark the team have got it :).

Just thought I should point these little bugs out. Even if the team can't get to them atm it will help them later to pick all this stuff up :).

This mod operates on a different mechanic than the stock game. Its operations are different and must be handled as such, expanding isnt made easy anymore. You will have to plan and calculate to gain ground. Don't just expect that all mods replicate the system stock sins uses.
