Greetings SWR Fans!
The day you have all been waiting for has arrived and you finally get to play the one faction that you've been looking forward to for these many months - or even years? wink.gif
We have all been extremely busy getting everything done for you in time on this day. In addition, I was also very delighted to see that we made it into the Top 5 of the ModDB Players Choice Awards which came as a pleasant surprise since there was some really good competition this year! On behalf of the SWR development team, I want to thank everyone who voted for us this year and wish you all a Merry Christmas, a happy new year and I hope that you will enjoy the new release!


Version 1.8 includes a number of new features:
- The European Continental Alliance as a new, fully implemented faction with a unique tech tree, mechanics, visuals and sounds as well as fully functional Skirmish AI
- The Sprut-SD Tank Destroyer upgrade for the Russian BMD fighting vehicle and the diminutive yet deadly Chinese Hopper Tank
- Improved visual effects, including a complete overhaul of all heavy machine gun and auto-cannon tracers
- Several bug fixes and balance changes


While you are waiting for the rather hefty download to finish, you can have a look at the complete 1.8 changelog here.

Finally!!!....also I wanted to report this that the lags that ROTR gets are not present at all in Shockwave...I don't see much difference in Graphics but the number of elements if increase...that causes the lag...also a large number of units being controlled also causes the same thing but only when issued by the AI...

Hey SWR productions! just wanted to thank you guys for this release and happy holidays.

i was just curious about the mod, i was playin around with 1.72 with finalbig and i saw some stuff like cameos of russian units that arent even in the game yet and 2 of them have renders which state that they will come out in 2.0.

also what happened to the ECA Goalkeeper defensive structure?

The mod is great and I love it, but I adore messing around in worldbuilder, and i can't get it to work! Apparently, there's something wrong with the solar reactor.

Holy cow, I love the ECA!

Think Howitzer emplacements need to be nerfed though, build sufficient defenses around them and you can bomb the enemy base into submission without even having to field a single unit.

Though I suppose that's the point.

There's a but with the IFV. If you put in an Engineer, the IFV gets the repair ability, but the Engineer doesn't disappear.

Greetings guys!
I'd like to say that your mod is really, really amazing, outstanding and we are thanked you for this masterpiece.
P.S. 'cause I'm from Russia, can I write you some dismatches with our language in this mod? There's NOT a lot of them.
But, in fact, its all up to you, so, thanks anyway!
