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.

RSS BrewLAN turns 5 years old!

BrewLAN is 5 years old. The BrewLAN ModDB page turns 5 on the 13th of October. That is when version 0.5 beta will exist. Will it take until 2019 for version 1? Oh God I'll be almost 30 then.

Who would have thought that after 5 long years ago an unassuming mod that started off as a way to make tech 1 only battles balanced, that took its name from a small private LAN party that also happened at around the same time, would still be alive and releasing! (I use the term releasing loosely as in those 5 years there have so far been only 6 public releases.) But yes! Today marks the 5 year anniversary that the first entry in the BrewLAN change log was dated. (I say dated not created, because the second entry starts with the words Created Changelog.)

Added the Pidgeon, UEF Tech 1 Light Gunship to the game.

It even comes with the adorable misspelling of 'Pigeon'. (*Shakes fist at sky* CURSE YOU PIDGEY!!!) At 5 years old the changelog is now 1311 lines long; 193 of which have been added since the last public release version 0.4.4 beta. To commemorate this event, I give you the video that someone linked to me last night that made me check how old the mod was for the sake of replying to said link, without which this Birthday message would have never happened. I give you a fan made trailer for BrewLAN:

Incidentally the 5 year anniversary of the BrewLAN ModDB page, and the first ever public download release of BrewLAN, is coming up on 13th October. I will commemorate the occasion with an all new public release! The long awaited BrewLAN version 0.5 beta.


Congratiolations on the 5 year anniversary :)

new release will be a good moment to play some FA(with brewlan offcource) again ^^
