Macross Wars Universe is a mod for Distant Worlds: Universe which is "roughly based" on the Macross series but with my own "custom" flavor... it is still very experimental at this stage.

Hi guys and gals,

This is the final version I will release for Macross Wars Universe. I no longer have the time to work on this mod, as over the past year I've become very busy and I think I've just lost interest in the mod in the end. So instead of quietly fading away without any updates and leaving people wondering on what has happened, I will update the last version (v.0.4.final) as a parting gift on all that I have worked on until I stopped.

It's not a huge update over v.0.3 but it's something. Mainly some new art assets more than anything but do read the changelog below for the details. Sadly I've not even looked into the new modding opportunities of the lastest DWU versions beyond a few glimpses, I had hope to but alas', here we are at the end times of the mod...

I've have tested the final version briefly and it still does work with the latest patch (v.1.9.5.12). If there are any bugs I do apologize, as it is pretty much an 'as is' version.

Anyways I will close, by saying this mod is now open source to all who may want to continue it, but maybe just give me a mention somewhere. I really enjoyed working on it and it's sad that it has had to come to an end. Maybe one day, Macross will be popular again and we will see some more mods come out... I only really started this mod as no one did Macross mods anymore, and to show my love for the franchise.

In the end, all I hope to achieve with this mod is make a few fans like me happy while playing it.
