Report article RSS Feed Star Wars Conquest 0.9.4-preview Released

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of our early 0.9.4 preview.

Posted by Swyter on Oct 6th, 2012

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of our early 0.9.4 preview. After so much work done and shown all these years we felt that you deserve a taste of what is coming in our final release for the original Mount&Blade 1.011.

Reducing years of work and little details to two lines seems a bit pointless, so let's just say instead that Vector has been primarily redoing every scene from the ground up, while creating new assets, props and refining the existing ones. I have been fixing recurrent bugs, adding new tasty features and visual stuff, ranging from meshes to animations.

We are both particularly proud of the revamped galactic map we have been working on together.
You will also notice a whole new level of graphic quality. Plus custom shaders.

But, as the preview title suggests, there are a series of unfinished parts and placeholder art.
We count with you to help us with the rough edges. Your feedback is important, use our Issue Tracker to find, comment and report bugs, problems and suggestions.

Let's make of this mod, with your help, something we can all be proud of.

I thought this day would never come! Rejoice! :D

I'm curious, are the placeholders more apparent in new features or simply use models/resources from older versions? I'm just a little concerned about things such as a "green Darth Vader" (read that from the issues page), and I figured it'd be better as a placeholder to have him as the old model.

Anyway, I'll download it soon and give it a wiz myself. :P

I think "Green Darth Vader" is the only obvious placeholder.

Bare in mind this is simply a preview version to locate bugs and such, most will be fixed in a couple of weeks when we bring the official version out.

This is a pre-release version. The mod is huge and who's better tester than the players themselves.

For those worried about the ambience, just stay with the older for the time being. The final will have a nice and intimidating Vader as you would expect.

It's been a while since I've played, so I don't remember how the cheats wroked perfectly, but it'd be awesome if you could turn cheats on/off at character creation (for people who like cheats but just get too tempted sometimes :P)

Nope. We've made nearly 900 updates to the mod since 9.3, unfortunately making such huge improvements has the downside of making save files in compatible.

Awesome! Loving what I see right now :D And I've only been to 5 planets. Hutta is officially my Bounty Hunter's hangout, which is really cool because he's a descendant of my BH on SWTOR, who started his rise to fame on Hutta :) What's awesome is it looks JUST LIKE the Hutta in SWTOR! Like I was blown away. Yavin was also very nice, the new temple is simply jaw-dropping with it's scale. Can't wait to see all the other planets, it'll take me a week just with exploration alone!

Se que hablas español, así que lo voy a escribir en español, esta versión tiene muchos crashes, pero es sin dudas, el mejor mod de la historia de los mods, y también mi juego preferido de Star Wars (Aunque no sea oficial), realmente ni me imagino el esfuerzo que se necesita para pasar de un juego medieval a algo totalmente futurista, tienen mi voto para estos "Mod of the year", felicidades por su equipo de trabajo, son muy talentosos. Un consejo, vuelvan con las viejas animaciones, las nuevas quedan un poco extrañas.

I'm just going to wait until everything is fixed, but whenever I try to fight on ship it crashes, and my player somehow ends up where the enemy spawns, when it shows me really charging with my own men.. sorta confusing. But Great as far as all of the other details. Waiting for it to pop onto Desura.

Well done guys, good work tahks)) It will be nice of you if add "Venator-class Star Destroyer" (for example if a want to play for clones I could choose this ship). And change clone trooper's voises( because for now they are having a voise like a droids) than names of my fraction's lords (Daynand, Marlund, Taarl - strange names for star wars commanders isn't it?) please change them if it's possible of course) I guess you have already informed about Darth Vader - he is without any textures, he is green.
