We have implemented upgrades into Shattered Paradise to compliment each faction and increase the variety of tactics and build orders. Each faction unlocks 3 upgrades on Tier 2 (Radar tech) and 3 ugrades on Tier 3 (Tech Center tech) respectively.

We are very proud to present our newest tool for Shattered Paradise that might even see implementation into the staple roaster of all OpenRA mods. It is our new selection UI being able to feature all unit stats including:

  • Health Points
  • Armor Type
  • Damage
  • Vision Range
  • Attack Range, separated in anti ground and anti air
  • Explosion Radius
  • Movement Speed
  • Power Output/Usage
  • Reload Delay
  • Scrin Shield HP
  • Mind Control Count
  • Carrier Drone Count
  • Harvester Capacty and value of Tiberium in it
  • Unit Cargo
  • Upgrades (researched upgrades will be shown in color)
  • Amount of additional units selected above what is shown

MustaphaTR has all the stats covered with his new code.

The New Direction of Shattered Paradise

We have decided to change Shattered Paradise's method of production from SingleQueue to MultiQueue. This means that multiple production structures will no longer speed up the build times of assets but rather provide additional building queues to produce the respective assets simultaneously.

MustaphaTR was able to implement this new method via lobby option checkbox. The new checkbox called “MultiQueue” is activated by default. However if you prefer to play Shattered Paradise with its old production method of SingleQueue you can simply turn this lobby option off.


The following lobby options have been added:

  • Limit Super Weapons checkbox
  • MultiQueue checkbox
  • Upgrades checkbox

First was something Romanov's Vengeance and a few other mods MustaphaTR has worked on already had, so we added here too. While we want MultiQueue to be the preferred production method for Shattered Paradise, we also added the option to disable it and return to old SingleQueue if you prefer it that way. Note that disabling the option, does not revert any balance changes that were made to account for MultiQueue, so the balance with this option will be a bit off. Third one again, a new thing that you can disable if you want. Disabling Upgrades restores GDI Power Turbines as a plug from Defense queue and makes Scrin Radar automatically enable Glider's mode switch.

We have adjusted literally every asset in the Shattered Paradise by giving each a customised build time as an additional balance method while also improving the balance overall. We have also implemented a new speed level system where each unit has a speed that is a multiple of 15 to classify them into their own speed category.

We have also added a new 2v2 map called Tiberium Forest while also improving already existing maps.

The entire changelog can be read here. You can download the new version from the links below.
