Hi, guys, I think it's a good tradition to make an article at the end of the year with a preview of your work. And I'm happy that we actually made a lot of stuff, maybe more than 2015 :) (the preview of that year you can see here)
I'll also use this article to adress a matter that really bothers me and that I think it's important for the mod. It's about our beloved FAQ. Be honest, guys, is this really useful? Has anyone actually readed it? How we can improve it, how to make it more visible or easier to understand? Any feedback is welcomed :)
Alright, I will struct the article in chronological order, starting from January 2015 so it may look a little bit chaotic. I will mark some hightlighted moments of our work, but I will also include some new information in some places, so pay attention or you will miss the latest GaW news ;)
So, we started the year with a picture of our clone plans and the work done:
And the same pages now looks like this: :)
You can see, we definately made some progres with the clones. What we have left is very hard and I think it has to wait a lot, as we are planing to focus now little more on CIS land units in 2017.
We showed cool new units like the Phase 1(here) and Phase 2 (picture) engineers
The Phase 1(here) and Phase 2(picture) ARF troopers
We worked also on some famous heroes
And on some that we created for you
In February we reached 1000+ followers and what makes us happier is that we managed today do gain the trust of 1,288 people. Thank you all!
After that we made a small deviation toward space units, with few nice models from Clone Wars Adventures like this Acclamator
But we quickly continue with the countless Republic's infantry units we are going to add, full companies of identical(e.g 21st Nova Corps) or highly customized (e.g. Torrent company heroes and pilots or Ghost Company heroes (Cody will receive new shoulder pads and the pilots are ready, we are just waiting for the good moment to show them)) clones.
A lot of them follow the canon, but I also made this two by my own design
and the Phase 2 442th Commander
We acquired an unique model for the CIS, that I will rig very soon and show ingame :)
We added new member to Red Mist Squad - Axe, and I'm really happy to tell you that I've been in contact with the creator of the RMS - JoeHoganArt from DeviantArt.com and he was so kind to share with us the design of all the troopers in the squad, so we will make the whole team in the mod 100% acurate to the original. We will for the full release of Panic over Muunilinst before we can show them in the mod, but they will be there :)
We added finally the Republic Commandos, the oficial Delta and Omega squads
and the custom Tracyn squad ("Fire" in Mando'a), name choosen by you in the vote (Thanks to all, who participated)
We continued with the last of the garrison units - the Senate commandos. They will be one of the units that won't be buildable but will be part of some special planets's defence. Other units like this one are the Kamino Security force or Phase 1 Rancor Battalion
And we made finally a really unique for all FOC mods unit - the clone mortar team
And at the end of the year we tried to make a little happier all CIS fans with the rigging of the B2 SBD
And finally the last unit for the year was the first Republic's hero that isn't clone trooper or jedi - Chancellor Palpatine
And we made the first steps in shaping the mod in our style with part one of the Republic's buildings(here). We are working on part two now and one of the buildings is ready :)
Well, I think that was most of our important work for the 2016, I really hope that we make better proggress in the incomming 2017 and I'm really sure we will have your amazing support. Support that helped us so many times and even reached it's top so far in this years Mod Of The Year contest, when you send us right in orbit with the incredible 3rd place in Players Choice - Best Upcoming Mod 2016. We are really proud of this achievement and it's all yours, not ours, so thank you very much.
So, this article is already long more than the necessary, so I wish you all on behalf of the entire Galaxy At War Mod Teamhappy celebration of the new year's arrival tomorrow! See you soon and don't forget to answer me about the FAQ :)
