2.3 Progress Report

This update is looking promising and I will make sure it delivers. We've decided to remake the temperate, urban and desert terrains, you can see a quick sneak peek below:

Some terrain features will be removed in the coming 2.3 updates, but only to be replaced with new, better features - keep an eye out for more updates soon!

2.3 will also introduce 1 additional subfaction to each side, can you guess what they are? I'll start with the most obvious one. Japan will have some fun tech from RA3:

All subfactions will receive new units and support powers where needed, and some tech will be redistributed to the new factions. The aim is to add more diversity without bloating any of the current rosters.

BlackSnow has also joined the team and will be helping us with remaking the Generals missions, here's a preview of the WIP opening scene for GLA 03 - The Astana Riots:


We've also converted some USA buildings for the Generals missions, to make it more legit - and if polished enough maybe we'll remake the USA campaign too? ;) (big thanks to DaFool for the conversions)

Phobos Feature Showcase - Ingame Guide

Phobos continues to deliver great new features, and a big one I decided to implement in 2.2.5 instead of 2.3 is the sidebar tooltip feature, which acts as an ingame guide:

Localization

Translation is underway and the first language the mod is being translated into is Chinese - it's about 80% done. This also means the ingame guide will be translated. Very exciting times ahead!

Story & Lore

This is long overdue and finally in the works. The first draft of the storyline is complete with the help of one of our mod supporters, Sunnyshine.

It will be released closer to the 2.3 release date and will detail exactly how Rise of the East comes to be, during and after the events of Yuri's Revenge and where the story will go - and of course, in due time we will have missions to complement each timeline event.

See you on the battlefield!

It is sad that there will be no Empire of the Rising Sun as a separate faction...

Vietnam and China are enemies. It might make more sense to make Democratic Kampuchea an ally?

I mean, isn't this an alternate history game?

I mean Kampuchea was a really weak state to be suspension of disbelief while Vietnam was far more powerful than Kampuchea, plus China did give a lot of help to Vietnam during the Vietnam war.

Wait do you have some intention to eventually split off Allies and USA making USA a separate Generals style faction?

I think it would be better to replace Ukraine with Cuba

Is that the mecha/jet Tengu? Is the VX mechanic actually possible in this engine?
