Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
Due to the headache inducing trickyness of maintaining mods on Knossos, I've pulled all my mods down from it for the time being. If someone wants to download and play, just ask me and I'll give a link for the download of the files.

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
The release plan has changed again. Rather than going for either one giant release or a 2-Part release, I've decided that, with how the mission plans have lined up, I could actually go ahead and release the campaign in four "Blocks", each of around 10 missions. Block 1 (more glamorous/appealing name for the blocks pending) is in this case asset complete, only requiring mission and art to be finished.

The art is currently the least worked on part of the campaign, since most (well, all) existing drawings had to be tossed out due to quality shortage. As far as missions go, I've got 6/10 missions as good as finished.

Now have some fancy screenies I took throughout testing.

Work will now proceed at full speed ahead. I'll try to get as much work done as physically possible before the end of July for an Act 1 release. Even if it means having to dedicate entire days and nights to meet that deadline.

That’s great news strygon but don’t go so far as to risk exhaustion.

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
Gonna have to announce yet another setback as I have to go back and redo all the weapons and then tweak balance and so on. Art is also progressing absurdly slowly because I can't seem to get much to look good right now. Overall, it's just nowhere even remotely close to the quality I'd want this thing to have, so I'll probably need to take the rest of this year just to shore up all the low quality bits.

I am deeply sorry if I'd gotten anyone's hopes up, and I recommend to not expect too much from this mod. It's going to be released but it won't be anything revolutionary or even new.

Re: The First Contact War - DevLog Thread
Though, before I go off and work on that (while also dealing with moving to another country) I'm also uploading a build to Knossos that contains the Demo, a remaster of OCaD and two simulator missions to get another taster of the gameplay.
