Post news RSS The Way Forward: 2021!

It's been a while since our last update. There are a good few reasons for this, but let's take a look at what is planned in the near future, and what can reasonably be expected in the next few months of this new year.

Happy New Years!

2021 is an important year for this mod, given that it marks 10 years since the beginning of this mod's timeframe, 2011, and what could be considered the golden year of ROBLOX clan wars, debatably the high water mark of the war group scene, given the energy, activity, and passion involved in all aspects at the time.

It is because of this significance in relation to the mod's subject matter that this mod is intended to be released in a more or less full, playable manner before the end of the year, and hopefully before even the summer arrives. Progress has been slow and will likely remain slower than it could be, given real life concerns such as work and travel, but the set of requirements that will need to be met before release is not insurmountable.

1. A replacement of all vanilla models currently in use, as well as vanilla terrain textures and doodads.

This has been a goal of the mod since launch, and one that much progress has been made on, but still an unfinished job. While it could be considered low-priority amidst the need for fully completely factions, the look of the mod is about as important as the faction scope, at least in this instance. If anything, having the game resemble its subject matter as close as possible should hopefully inspire me to work harder and faster on completing other tasks.

2. The implementation of the Vaktovian Empire, and its arguable arch-nemesis of the era, the Roblox Assault Team.

These are almost the two most important factions in the mod balance wise, as they are in many ways mirror opposites of the other. The Vaktovian Empire (aka "VAK") is an incredibly elite-minded group that focuses on the build-up of very strong, high veterancy infantry units from the get-go, with little in the way of supporting mechanization or even air cover, while the Roblox Assault Team (aka "RAT", sometimes also "The Frostarian Union") relies upon masses of low quality, untrained troops, held together by advanced fortifications (notably making use of remote-controlled turrets) as well as air and sometimes ground vehicle support. RAT is eventually capable of fielding its own elite infantry, just as VAK is eventually somewhat capable of fielding hordes of cannon fodder units, but these are generally tactics to be used against other groups in this mod, as trying to win soldier-for-soldier versus VAK as RAT, or with numerical superiority as VAK versus RAT, is essentially fighting on your enemy's terms. The fighting between these two groups essentially defined the last half of 2011, and the first half of 2012, the very middle period of this mod's timeline. It is vital they both be implemented, before any other major groups.

3. The completion of all currently implemented factions.

Sort of a given, isn't it? As important as VAK and RAT are to any release of the mod, it is also imperative that I finish what has been started. This means the United States Military (gmf23/gmf34, not Night's), Panzer Lehr, the 101st Airborne (Iceball727), British Red Devils, Empire of Japan (ColonelTwixxy), Canadian Starfleet, and Russian Army. I would also like to "complete" those factions which have files in the mod already but no units at the moment, such as Spetsnaz (currently actually has a unit or two in the mod, back when Russian Army and Spetsnaz were planned to be one faction), the Mobile Bloxxers, Roblox Elite Forces (mod-mil era), and Italian Armed Forces (ITA).

I'm hoping to get back into a weekly update schedule, what with the new year, but no promises. What I can say is there will be a major push to get modelling done on a multitude of new buildings and vehicles as well as doodads, to replace those currently in the game as placeholders or vanilla remnants.

If you have any questions about specific progress, or research to add to the development of any aspect of the mod, feel free to contact me, or to post in the new forums located on the mod header.
