It has been awhile since we have updated our ModDB profile. I regret that, and now we plan to keep it as updated as the rest of our site. Tonights post is our latest news with some links to older content you might have missed, but will enjoy.

I’m sure many of you have been waiting on a news update from us and I am pleased to say we have some for you today. Over the past few weeks progress has been rolling along and we are pleased with what we have accomplished so far. I would like to take some time and share these most recent changes with the community.

If you check out our new Pic of the Day you will find a render of the new R2 unit, with his data probe arm extending and ready to go. But don’t let that render fool you, R2 still has many more gadgets hidden and waiting in those compartments. "But Yoshi, why does R2 need these things?" Why, so he can help the Rebel Alliance achieve victory of course. R2 is an addition to our Objective game type as a new type of objective. He will be joining you and your fellow troopers in the field, helping you to get to places that would be unreachable without him. And while he does his duty, it is going to be up to your team to keep him alive and rolling. Don’t worry if this brave droid falls in the line of combat, as there are more droids to replace him. Don't forget to check out the new poll on this subject!

Next up, we promised you shields on our snubfighters that are supposed to have them. We decided to take it one step further: Not only are applicable fighters equipped with shields, they also now have a power management system so power can be shifted from engine, shield, and laser systems to change the recharge rate (ala the X-Wing series of games). Need more speed? It’s yours. More shields? Done. Not enough fire power? No more. Players will now be able to actively cycle through these different powers systems and input or take away power from them as they see fit.

Make sure to check our webpage at Ut2004troopers.com for our new X-Wing model as well as some other new media. We have alot more coming soon.
