Hello everyone,
I hope you all had an nice Cristmas.
This Article informs you about the current Development Progress.
Additionally it informs you about the Status regarding to the First Release and about the future Plans.

What happenend to the old Release Date:
The first Release was orignally set on 31 December 2022.
However I have decide to move the Release of the first Version to the first quarter of 2023.
That means a new Release date will be announced in January.

Here the reasons for this Decision:
First of all the Development of the additional Sections for the Fire Support Manager takes more time as expected. Second instead releasing a mod with unfinish Content i want to make sure to finish the 3 Latest Sections for the Fire Support Manager. The latest thing is I want to do an Final Test to check its functionality to fix Balance Issues and Bugs before the Mod goes live.

What is planned to appear in the first Version:

Reinforcement Manager
Sections:
Land Reinforcments
Air Reinforcments
Space Reinforcements (Needs FBP Orbital)

Fire Support Manager

Sections:
Artillery
Naval
Missile
Rapid Fire (In Development)
Beam (In Development)
Special (In Development)

If anything is finished the first Release will be published.

What about the Natural Desasters?
The Natural Desasters will appear in the third Release.

Some of them are still in Development and will appear in the Fire Support Manager later.
