State of the Mod

and some quick updates


Hi all,

I would just like to thank everyone again for your continuous support. 2020 has been rough for everyone, and I was especially hit hard this year. Basically, due to health issues, I had to stop modding for a few months. I am now doing better, but have considerably slowed down. A lot of what I planned to do is probably not going to happen or if it is, it will take some time. That is all I can say about that. On to the mod updates:

  • New Volunteers: So, while ModDb has not been updated, we have been actively working on the mod in these months and we have found a few new members to help in creating assets, including someone for voice acting.

  • Combat Improvements: We are actively working on a major overhaul of battles, implementing a system that allows individual bots of both player and AI forces to spread out and seek cover behind objects on the map, boxes, pipes, etc. This system, does cause a slight hit on performance, but it seems to be a fleeting moment at the start of a fight when most bots are spreading out. As an additional feature for it, we added a system for bots to crouch down behind their covers when fired at.

  • New Scenes: As most battlemaps are very open, without any covers, we are remaking them to either fit for the system, or creating completely new scenes to benefit the combat improvements mentioned above.

  • New Assets: There are a few assets that were made and some old ones replaced and/or improved. I don't remember all of them, but you'll see it all in-game.

That is it for now. We are chugging along slowly, and the next update will be published when it is ready.

I also would like to thank DarthMongolTheUnwise for holding the fort while I was gone. This mod will have died without his unwavering support. He is the backbone of this mod, and I am forever grateful.

Thanks to Weren for alot of the new models, and to all our volunteers who help with making this mod.

Special thanks to Seek & Destroy who is helping me with scripting/coding.

Thanks all, and as always, May the Force be With You.

Regards,

Khamukkamu

For now, lets say, probably at some point. Next update? Unsure. It really depends on whether or not Khamu's health remains as good a it is now. Freelancer is planned, it is one of the goals to reach for, but its some time away, impossible to even roughly estimate when

All of this sounds and looks great. The crouching system can really improve the dynamics of battles while also bringing the atmosphere closer to the films. Also really damn sexy work with those models and textures
