BrewLAN is a mod for Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance that has been in on and off development by a team of one for over half a decade. It adds a wide variety of new units for all factions, as well as offering several new game modes and features. The core design goals for the mod are simple; to add new, interesting, and visually aesthetic units which complement those already in existence and to maximize technical compatibility with other mods.

Report RSS BrewLAN 0.8 release date announcement

BrewLAN version 0.8 returns this December on the 8th.

Posted by on

BrewLAN 08-12-16The prodigal son returns this December, with its first 'proper' release in almost 2 years; just in time for the Christmas holidays, and with time enough for me to offer technical support before I leave for America to witness the calm before the storm of that one specific inauguration, and the winter Awesome Games Done Quick charity event. Which I will be attending and mr.deagle will be running in.

I will be streaming on Twitch

On 25th November, this Friday, from 10AM UTC, I will be live at twitch.tv/thebalthassar where I will field questions from the chat while I demostrate new things for 0.8, including unfinished things that may or may not make the cut, and may even do some live development.

New units

There are many new things with 0.8. New units include:

Aeon:

  • Tech 3 Torpedo LauncherArmillary: Tech 3 Mobile Anti-Air Defense
  • Tech 3 Shield Wall
  • Tech 3 Mobile Anti-Air
  • Tech 3 Mobile Shield Generator
  • A VERY unfinished Experimental Aircraft Factory that probably won't make it

UEF:

  • Tech 2 Heavy WallNew Patch Class texture
  • Tech 2 Field Engineering Ship
  • Tech 3 Field Engineering Ship
  • Tech 3 Anti-Artillery Shield (A remake of the Xbox 360 unique unit)
  • Tech 3 Mobile Shield Generator
  • Experimental Drop-Pod Artillery
  • Experimental Sensor System

Cybran:

  • Tech 1 Light Torpedo BomberHexatron: Tech 3 Mobile Missile Platform
  • Tech 3 Mobile Multiple Rocket Launcher
  • Tech 3 Mobile Cloakable Stealth Field Generator
  • Additional build options for the Megalith

Seraphim:

  • Tech 2 Heavy WallChappa'ai: Experimental Quantum Gateway
  • Tech 2 Mobile Shield Generator
  • Experimental Stargate
  • The 90th reworking of the Experimental Engineer now called the Experimental Reconstruction Engineer

New side-mods

Joining the milliard of side mods, all of which now actually work, there are now also:

  • A mod that swaps mass and energy productionDodecahedron
  • A tower defence mod
  • A mod that adds random crate drops with random lewt in them
  • A mod that randomly alters the costs of units, and their stats to match
  • A mod that reduces the effect of "unit soup" with both BrewLAN and BlackOps enabled
  • A mod that adds dynamically chosen and descriptive strategic icons to experimentals, tested with those mods that add million of experimentals. (Doesn't work with FAF)
  • And a mod that increases draw distances and forces tarmac on spawned buildings, for better screenshots.

That probably isn't everything, so watch this space and my stream, and brace for the biggest BrewLAN ever.

Delayed: Moddb.com

The delayed announcement wasn't posh enough to get published to non-BrewLAN pages, but the short of it is: I broke myself, it's now coming the 15th instead.

Thanks, my leg is healing well so far.

I do plan to update the FAF vault, although there is usually at least one thing on BrewLAN that doesn't work on FAF each version, and during the development of this version I managed to brick my copy of FAF, so I couldn't test with it (Strategic icons and buttons have never worked on FAF, for example). 0.8 will definitely be on the vault; that is one of the definitions I set for what constitutes "BrewLAN 0.8".
