It has been a long time coming, but the moment you've all been waiting for has finally arrived.
 


Today we release the First Strike 1.5 Client Files a little earlier than expected as a gift to all those who have supported us over the years, and to give you all plenty of time to get this large file downloaded and up and running, so that when the official release date of the 28th does arrive you'll all be raring to go, and will have nothing to do all day but enjoy First Strike 1.5.

Now here is a little video taster of what you can expect to see and do in First Strike 1.5.


Listed below is the 1.5 changelog which I think you'll find to be quite the interesting read as you download the mod...

First Strike v1.5 Changelog:

Weapons:
- Enhanced AI tweaks for many turbolasers
- Enhanced AI tweaks for anti-starfighter turrets

Vehicles:
- MLC-3 added
- All Terrain Personal Transport (AT-PT) added
- Sentinel added
- Jawa Sandcrawler added
- Enhanced AI tweaks for Yavin X-Wings and Y-Wings
- Tweaks to Firehawke and T1-B for better balance

Maps:
- Jundland Wastes
- Strike at Parmel

Singleplayer Map Support added to:
- Bandomeer Refinery (dogfighting only)
- Bestine
- Endor Clearing
- Endor Strike Team
- Mos Entha
- Mos Espa

Co-op Map Support added to:
- Bestine
- Endor Clearing
- Endor Strike Team
- Mos Entha

Improved Singleplayer & Co-op Map Support for:
- Battle of Yavin

Visual:
- Cap ship destruction sequences enhanced, including longer wreck times
- new static objects for Jundland Wastes and Strike at Parmel
- Improved object population added to many interiors on Mos Espa
- Endor Strike Team visuals refined and updated

Gameplay:
- Scoring added for Deflection Tower destruction on Yavin
- Scoring added for successful Exhaust Port torpedo shots on Yavin
- Scoring added for Heavy Turbolaser destruction on Escape from Hoth
- Scoring added for Imperial Bulk Freighter destruction on Imperial Convoy Raid

Various bug fixes:
- Including the Rebel Medic's droid bug

Also of note, due to the sheer volume of new content it was impractical to produce an incremental patch from 1.4 to 1.5, so I'm afraid trying to update 1.4 to 1.5 with the current launcher will not work. You have to download and install 1.5 in its entirety. Think of it as a fresh canvas or foundation on which we will build. This just tidies things up a lot at our end, and will make future development and updates much cleaner.

Finally below is the important bit, a list of locations where you can download the client files. So all that is left to say is good luck with installing 1.5.

And that we all look forward to seeing you out there on the battlefield troopers!

One problem Spawn menu isn't appearing on singleplayer, Multiplayer, or lan.

Running Windows 7. Never had problems with the previous releases so I wonder what it could be.

Head over to our forums Falleen9 and check out our Client Support Boards:

Forums.fsmod.com

Someone might have heard of your problem there and have a fix for it, have to admit that one is a new one to me.

Hope everyone else is having fun, and I'll see you all out there.

I love these long gameplay videos and the quality of the mod is outstanding! It's great how you got the map to feel/look really open and the animated skybox does a lot to make the scenario feel true to the movie. Great!

too bad I'm just finding more or less empty servers, and just a few....(around 5 or 6)..

...but it's a great mod, it's a better feeling Star Wars Battlefront offered^^

PS brilliant news I love first strike, just wish that more people would see it and realise how fun it is and can be. I was there for alot of GC and then came to this with high hopes, not being dissapointed, however people need to come back or new people join in.

Spread the word and let more people know about the mod. You will usually find quite a few people about at around 8pm BST (British Summer Time), though we have been finding people on at all times since the release, just jump on a server and people will usually start joining once someone gets the ball rolling. Hope you enjoy the mod.

Also now the EA Master Server issue has been sorted things should run a lot smoother, should not be so difficult to accumulate players now the disconnect problems have been fixed.
