BrewLAN is a mod for Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance that has been in on and off development by a team of one for almost 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 maximise technical compatibility with other mods.

An update of the developments in BrewLAN, including alpha releases, links, lists, and media.

Posted by on

The development schedule for BrewLAN, which is erratic at best, revolves around frequent small alpha releases every few days to a week. The driving force behind those releases being my desire to play SupCom with friends with the mod but not use old versions, so I can use my latest creations. There is a list I maintain on the Google code page. See the afore mentioned page for more information about the alphas and for download links. Only the intentionally public beta releases will get uploaded here, to ModDB.
Now on to the actual updates since the 0.2 beta release.

Updates

Additional Aeon units:

  • Tech 3 Armoured Assault tank; 'Moldovite'.
  • Tech 3 Heavy Air Transport; 'Cirrus'.
  • Tech 1 Air Staging Facility; 'Pedestal'.

Additional Cybran units:

  • Experimental Rapid-Fire Artillery; 'Scathis Mark II'.
  • Tech 3 Torpedo Bomber; 'Zenith'.

Additional Seraphim units:

  • Tech 1 Air Staging Beacon; 'Iathu-uhthe'.

Changes:

  • Created a new tarmac for the Cybran Tech 2 Mass Storage and Tech 3 Strategic Missile Defence.
  • Created custom strategic icons for the suicide weapon buildings (e.g. mines).
  • Changed the menu sorting of experimental's so there is a divider between buildings and units.
  • Removed large amounts of redundant data and fixed several compatibility issues.
  • Added limited Sorian AI capabilities.

Forth coming

There is a full list of all BrewLAN units contained in the source files, the latest version being found in the latest alpha. The list includes all created, modified, in production and planned units related to the mod and even features a table of the experimental's planned for the mod.
