2.2 Demo Announcement
« on: December 02, 2016, 12:05:20 PM »

That's right, we're doing a demo for 2.2. In the past we've avoided doing "demo" versions, since we were typically more concerned with just getting out the full version of the mods, whether as a beta or full release. However, since we're now closing on three years since 2.1, we want to thank everyone for their patience with something, since we're not quite near release yet with everything. There are some other practical considerations for this as well; it provides a good motivator for us to focus on getting certain things done, and also should get us some feedback on new systems before they're too integrated into the mod, and let us gauge if we're going in the right direction.

So, what will be in the demo?
The demo will include one of the new 2.2 GCs, Hunt for Zsinj. This GC is both the closest to being done, and provides a good taste of both some old and new content, as well as having a fair variety of different story elements. Keep in mind that there will be a significant amount of development time between the Demo and the 2.2, so while it should give an idea of what the final version will be, there'll still be some incomplete elements.

If you don't know what the Hunt for Zsinj GC consists of, you can see the breakdown of it by clicking here.

Among other things, this includes:
New Heroes & Units (Neutron Star, Secutor, Allegiance, Bellator, Dauntless, Jumptroopers, Providence, Gladiator, Arquitens, Droideka, Skyhopper, Procursator)
Several Redone Units (Most fighters, Battle Dragon, ISDI/II, VSDI/II, Acclamator, Venator)
New Skydomes
Schism Events, Minor Factions, Story Events
Revamped Projectile Particles
Performance Optimizations (Loading & Running)

We'll be posting a more complete list of features and unit lists with the actual download, however for now I will just add the disclaimer that Maldrood will not have access to the Sorannan in the demo, and the Bellator will be the model that was in Ascendancy 1.0 as opposed to the shiny new one. As for release dates, we know better than to give one but it will be very soon.

In the meantime, Corey has been doing a playthrough of that particular GC on his youtube channel if you're interested in watching it. Tomorrow (Saturday the 3rd) he will also be doing a livestream at 2PM EST of that playthrough.



In the meantime, this week ModDB's Mod of the Year competition kicked off. Last year we managed to crack the top 10 with both Ascendancy and Imperial Civil War, and we need your support to try to do even better! So, let's see how far we can make it this year! In order to vote, just click on the banners below and click on the "vote" button on their respective pages. Remember, you can vote for as many mods as you like in this phase. A huge thanks to everyone who's voted for either mod so far.

Hooray, your work is paying off. can't wait to see the full mod in all it's glory!!
do you know what really makes me mad? that the NR didn't make as many different SSDs as the empire. they would have won much faster had they done so. it's just not fair. but, if their were more NR SSDs, they would be absolute SUPER-CARRIERS.

Question, is this only going to come with one GC with the changes or with all the normal GCs with out the changes plus the changed GC if that makes sense.

One GC with the changes. Would be a huge amount of work trying to have it half and half, and we don't want all the unfinished stuff sitting around. We figure if people wanna play the other stuff 2.1 still exists.

question. even though the new HFZ is the only new GC, will the new unit rosters be in place for all the other GCs?
do you know what really makes me mad? that the NR didn't make as many different SSDs as the empire. they would have won much faster had they done so. it's just not fair. but, if their were more NR SSDs, they would be absolute SUPER-CARRIERS.

None of the other GCs will be available. This will be standalone, not something you plug into 2.1, and we're not reverse engineering the rest of the 2.2 build back to 2.1, especially when 90% of people wouldn't realise its only HfZ that's supposed to be the demo portion.

Same I'm excited to get my hands on it. Cannot wait for it to come out! But I really do hope they stick to their current game plan and not release to everyone when its unfinished.
