So i've checked out everything and it seems like the backed up .BIG file on the external drive is a bit old, way to old infact, so sadly i have to inform you that the helicopters and buildings seen on the first pictures here on moddb will not be in the first alpha release.. It feels like i have brought up hope for you guys just to crush it, and that makes me fell kinda bad to be honest. I will however readd them again asap. ASAP meaning as soon as i can recover the files from either my harddrive that is in one of the many moving boxes i packed, or as soon as i can get the file from my friends computer.
To be honest tho i am not absolutly sure i still have the original 3D files for the helicopters, so that might make it abit hard to update them in the future, if i have the the helicopters on the screenshot will stay, otherwise i will remake them with interior sometime in the future.
I also been going thru some code today and i can reveal to you the exact units you'll be able to play with in this alpha release. Heres the list.
- Mutt Jeep (105mm Recoilless Rifle)
- Desert Patrol Vehicle (50.cal) (Maybe none)
- Assault Humvee (50.cal)
- M1117 Guardian (50.cal / 40mm Grenade launcher)
- LAV-25 (25mm Bushmaster)
- Stryker IFV (50.cal)
- M113 APC (50.cal)
- M551 Sheridan (152mm Tankgun)
- M2 Bradley (25mm Bushmaster, TOW Launcher, Coaxial 50.cal Machinegun)
They will all come with one weapon each for now, coding overlord logic to all units at the moment will take to long time and i want to release something to the public asap, so that will have to wait. The Desert Patrol Vehicle might come without any weapons at all, will still be buildable but rather useless as you might figured out.. this is until i fixed the code, which i will do til' the next release after this one.
People using Worldbuilder with my mod will have placeholder units (units name, but will look like vanilla generals unit), this are of no intrest at the moment, they'r just there so i can build all the code without having the actully unit yet. However there will be 2 units that you can get via Worldbuilder, they will have no weapons whatsoever atm, and will be added later ingame. These 2 units are :
- Mutt Jeep FAV
- Humvee FAV
FAV standing for Fast Assault Vehicle, these vehicles will be airdroped in the game as reinforcement in a later release..
As of this little setback with the helicopters and the buildings, You will now still be able to build all vanilla US buildings, even the particle cannon and airfield, you will still be able to use vanilla aircraft as the comanche and raptor and such. These will ofcourse be removed as soon as possible too. And yet again, i'm so sorry for the huge disappointment, all i can say is i'm sorry. And if you look from the bright side that will just make the next alpha release after this one even more so epic.
Sneakpeak of what my goals are for the release after this release would be the following.
- Add in all the old helicopters and/or add atleast 1 remade helicopter.
- Hopefully re-add all buildings if i get the files back.
- Add Overlord Logic to atleast 2 units, hopefully more, like 4 units would be nice.
- Get one new building up and ready.
- Fix so atleast 1 unit got some sort of upgrades.
i hope you haven't lost faith in me or this mod! If i cant recover my old files then i'll either spend that time remaking the buildings, or spend that times on making more units. But we'll see, I'm gonna keep working hard over here! Until next time, ciao!
P.S. This alpha release will have an easter egg in it. =)
P.S.S. *NOTE* The Russian armed forces will not be in this update! *NOTE*
