MOD DEVELOPMENT


Alright, so as of this update, I've finished adding and rebalancing the mod. All further updates will be mostly cosmetic (retextures/remodels and fixing some texture problems I've been putting off until I can find a way to fix them - like the Naval Outposts and Naval Forts), or will be based on feedback.

It's time to playtest the mod to see if there are more underlying issues, so report what you think should be changed or rebalanced either on the mod Steam group page here:

Steamcommunity.com

or on the new article here:

Moddb.com
