Post news RSS Releasing Complex Enhanced 8.8

It`s release day tomorrow (due to a bug). Finally, after a bit of an activity low point, we`ve come back, and the team is back to work. As you`ll see in this update, we`ve covered a lot of the fields that were promised - our work here is mostly done, and Complex Enhanced will conclude within a few updates. We`re working on creating the new core script of Rebirth, and things are slowly coming along. If everything works out, we`ll make the transition in spring 2014.

Posted by on

This is the final conceptual revisit of the Complex Enhanced series. Future updates will merely add new maps, and change balance. The shape and form of the mod you will see here is very close to what you`ll experience in the future Rebirth mod. We`ve brought the concept of the requirement system much closer to the vanilla system: for example you will have straight access to sub capital ships once the research module level is reached(Vaygr need chassis techs as always).

The changes are intended to bring more action to the game, and speed up gameplay to turn this into a more than standard competitive RTS game.
Stay tuned for more updates, and of course for our development of Rebirth, and the Kadeshi race!
Instructions for installation and change log can be seen below.Our development forum can be seen here : Complexenhanced.userboard.net
