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.
We are releasing Version .3 Onslaught on
February 21st, 2015
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Dawn of the Reapers. We love games like Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Bigger and better
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
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.
Introducing Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
