Greetings, Generals! It's been a year since the mod development started again, we have some news for you, as we all going through some of our unit profiles. These past 6 months I've been focused on finishing the codes and Buildings and units roster of both The Gallians and Imperials with some old models that are also improved. Also, with the year-end getting closer, the release of the very first version might not be so far.
For Gallia, with limited capital and manpower, a strategy is very important for national defense. the survival of a country depends on the higher-ups gathered at the strategy center. The strategy center was also essential for the requisition and control of the most powerful and sophisticated weapons in the Gallia arsenal such as the Heavy Tank and the Mortar Tank. In addition, it granted general access to several advanced upgrades that further bolster her forces' capabilities. The strategy center was also the place where the intelligence files and reports are located and allowed its personnel to periodically reveal all enemy positions.
Furthermore, the strategy center enabled a general to employ a single 'strategy' or 'battle plan' that improved certain characteristics of all ground units under the general's command.
Supply is a crucial part of War and these buildings were almost built anywhere the Gallian Military base stood and was capable of storing a large amount (if not unlimited) of materials.
A three-wheeled truck that is used to carry the supplies for the military. The Military insignia is visible on either side of the truck.
A worker is a person who works. This usually means a person who does manual labor, like constructing buildings. People who work, usually get paid for the work they do. This is either called wages (if it is bound to a time period, like an hour), or a salary (if it is independent of the time taken).
In these past 6 months, I am also improving a lot of things in-game, especially UI. Thanks to Kazoose who create the UI mostly. Here is the updated view of the In-game screenshot.
We are also introducing Imperial Infantries and additional tanks in this update, The bravery these men show for the Emperor and their country is proof of loyalty.
Since the Empire is steeped in older traditions, their military uniforms represent a unique blend of medieval and modern styles. The metal breastplates were worn by the Imperial troops were used to deflect enemy gunfire in the early days when guns were first invented.
With the evolution of armored units, skirmisher tactics, and more powerful guns, however, these metal breastplates became more of a liability as they hindered the soldier's movements. The fact that the Imperial troops still wear these outdated forms of armor is a clear indication of just how important their ideologies are to them.
The phalanx formation was the most effective formation for ancient infantrymen to withstand the charge of enemy cavalry. In a phalanx, soldiers were armed with long weapons like spears, pikes, and other polearms. This may be why the Imperial anti-tank soldiers wield weapons shaped like the lances used in medieval jousts.
The Imperial scouts are the least armored of all the Imperial units, but they are still more heavily armored than the Gallian scouts. The flat piece that runs down the middle of their helmet is reminiscent of the feathers that adorned the helmets of medieval knights.
Around EWII's beginning, the Empire began developing a new type of medium tank, incorporating electric-welding rather than rivets to increase its defense. Their most notable feature is their sloped plating, which redirects the force of enemy rounds. Through this, they realized new defensive designs that didn't rely on armor thickness. They nicknamed the tank "Kafer," after the hard carapace of a beetle. This revolutionary development shocked engineers the world over and influenced tank design for years to come.
Maximilian, the leader of the Imperial invasion, commanded this massive tank. It represents the enhanced version of an existing design, created to fell enemy castles and fortresses. Under orders from Maximilian, the body was reinforced and fitted with a Ragnite Cannon, adding to its already formidable capabilities. It played heavily in the Empire's seizure of the citadel of Ghirlandaio.
This massive tank sits at 20m in length and 245t in weight, but the mighty size and weight of this tank aren't its most impressive features. Despite its physical bulk, Batomys is capable of speeding up to 30km/h, and its surprising mobility makes it such a considerable threat.
Also, take a peek at the third faction of this mod. The Atlantic Federation is the pioneer of a democratic society. Although, they won't show up in the first release.
The Federation Tank is commonly known as the "Minute", these tanks made up the bulk of the Federation's tank forces. Low in cost and easy to manufacture, its model was finalized just before the outbreak of the Second Europan War. The name derives from the Minutemen: civilian soldiers in Vinland's war for independence. The gathered tanks evoked images of Vinland's amassed colonial militiamen - and to parallel their namesakes, who were said to be combat-ready at only a minute's notice, the army could assemble a great number of these tanks quickly.
An offshoot model of a Vinland-made medium tank known as the "Minute." Squad E's version has been modified to Miles's specifications. It was then named the Hafen, after Claude's hometown in the Principality of Gallia.
Cannon rounds are stored on the side of the tank-an artifact of its outdated design. In some cases, the enemy fire would ignite the rounds, causing explosions. The Hafen's modifications account for this design flaw, fortifying the tank's sides with denser armor plating.
Precisely when Claude acquired the Hafen and when Miles modified it is not clear, but by the time of the Imperial invasion it was already very different to a standard Federation Tank, mounting a conformal gun mantlet similar to that of the Edelweiss as well as additional side armor.
The next updates would be the development of the skirmish AI and the possible release date.
That's all for now if you are curious and wanted to keep a close update on this mod, feel free to follow by clicking the Recruitment Poster Below!
Oh, I almost forgot! Now this mod has a discord channel on the NLS Public Server! Have an idea, suggestion, or complaint? you don't need to wait any longer for a response.
Nice to see progress is going smoothly! Can't wait to see more Federation stuff
Will all the weapons on batomys work? I know some ZH engine limitations make that a difficult prospect.
Sadly, It can't
But, there are ways to make it viable as a unit
WOW,nice Federation Tank
Having everything listed like this is great
I especially like the supply truck in context of this lineup :)
Cant wait to blitzkrieg Gallia >:V
Great work mate! The mod is looking better with each update!
