Stardrive has always been a very good real time x4 game with excellent mod support. The main issues of the game were low performance on end game and bugs.
The Blackbox project addresses these issues. And we decided also to work on and improve some of the better mods out there, created for StarDrive 1 over the years.
Combined Arms is based on Combomod (keeping the best parts in Combomod). We did a lot of balance work on Combomod and added such vast amount of new content that we decided it deserves a new name.
A short summary of the new content:
In order to install and play Combined arms you need a Vanilla copy of StarDrive 1. Once you have that installed, you need to install the alpha version of Blackbox, called Texas. This are not the mod itself, but major code refactoring and new features of StarDrive core game. Once you have the above installed, you can download the latest copy of combined Arms from Bit Bucket.
Texas_A2_RC2_342 is uploaded. This is a test build (it was stable for me, but you might encounter issues).
1: massive performance improvements for ship design. More data to the player (like peak power time, real EMP protection and more).
2: Symmetric ship design feature. symmetric module mode can be toggled on or off with a button in the bottom of the ship design screen or M key.
3: Bulk module replacement feature: For bulk module replacement - you select the new armor (or other module with the same rstrictions) and click on a module you wish to replace, along with shift key.
4: power calculations and data display calculations in ship design were all fixed. Now you will see the real data, like Ammo time and power time, and be able to better design your ships.
5: Re-implementation of undo/redo feature in ship design. Undo - Ctrl Z. Redo - Shiftt + Crtl Z or Ctrl Y.
Please note that you might encounter issues with these feature. It would be very helpful if you elected to help us test those features, before we release Texas Alpha 2.
