0 comments by Iterator on Mar 24th, 2011

4 weeks since the last UETF Chronicles Release! I had this idea that everything would get easier after release, but so far I've discovered that coding still requires effort, art still requires talent and that cutting sleep is still tiring - so much for that plan. The one thing that has become easier is getting feedback; with some solid numbers being tracked in our cloud, I can actually learn what players are doing in the game (most of them are still trying to find what button to press to harvest their crops). Seriously though, I've got some great data that I'm putting to use right now to improve the game - you can check it out in the 'By The Numbers' post on Iterative Games.


Anyway, I think bulleted feature-lists for updates are boring (Item 204.1: reduced enemy AI iron regression by .023); so instead, I'm giving you some great reasons to give the new update a try:

It's now available in .ZIP format! For everyone who couldn't/wouldn't use Desura - this one is for you. For those of you that have Desura - welcome to the joy of easy updates.

You like shooting robots in the face, and having them explode.
Now contains 200% more exploding robots! I was being serious about that. Part of the fun in being an elite super-operative with crazy weapons is just blowing the crap out of masses of enemy toasters. With the addition of hoards of low level minion bots and a general reduction in boss bots, your environment just got a lot more target rich.

You like gaining levels and unlocking new stuff. Gaining levels is fun, but nobody likes the grind - especially when you can't figure out what the reward is. So I've made all that easier. Lower level caps, lots of extra XP from killing minions, more upgrades per level and easy to find info on what you just unlocked and what unlocks you are working towards.

You like rocket launchers and explosions. I admit, there was no point in NOT equipping the micro-canister attachment for the rocket launcher before...but can I tempt you with a little heat seeking goodness? Now you'll have to make the hard choice of faster reloads vs. deadly heat guided rockets. For that extra level o' deadly I've also added the 'Head Seeker' technique - now your guided projectiles will automatically aim for enemy heads. Oh, and enemies that are on fire make are much easier for your missiles to find...you may want to pass that note onto your Ranger buddies.

You'd rather play a half-hour. Who has the time for 12 waves of unfeeling metal machines these days? Not you! You want your crazed robotic armies to deliver more madness in less time! So I've reduced the max waves down to 9 and redistributed enemy 'talent' so you'll see more challenge in less time.

For more updates, check out the Iterative Games Blog or follow us on Twitter. As always, thanks for your support and enjoy the new release. Go forth and frag some toasters!

Combat. Customization. Cooperation. The UETF Chronicles.

We'll see what we can do about the videos; Can you install the mod if it was provided the files in .ZIP or .RAR format?

i've downloaded and installed the mod, but when i launch it... the game crashes. I am puzzled on why there are two base folders for the mod and then system files for ut2004...(proper manual installation instructions..?)

We are working to provide a better manual installation option with instructions for Mac users; Can you report the error that you are getting when you try to launch?

Why is it that my hud always starts with basically nothing there? :\

Also it unbinded all my keys (That don't have controls in my controls menu so I have to bind them myself) like reload an requestmenu. It took me awhile to realize that they just weren't binded because I thought they were broken.

Would like to see more specials :D they come in handy.

Currently the launcher is updating your player.ini file so it resets some values, such as the minimized HUD and your key bindings. It should only happen on the initial download.

You can press the '+' button to add the missing elements back to your HUD.

The launcher downloads then stops when it gets to the Tactics folder, and the launcher stops moving for about 40 mins?

Just ran the launcher from a clean install and it worked fine; The launcher will be unresponsive for a long time while it downloads the files (1st time only), can be over an hour if you have a slow connection. You should be able to see the name of the file that is being updated while the launcher runs.

Thanks Iterator, I'll give it another try, but If it still does not work I might have to nag more peps to trouble shoot.

By the way could they have exo suits in a patch, sort of like an expansion.

So I can pilot mechs like in "Armored Core" or "Heavey Gear" cause thats the type of Mod I was Always looking For, but no one ever seems to come up with? Then I will Cast my vote on that Mod!!!!
