    The titan gate could be a titan itself... Maybe make it two structures... A super expensive main entry gate, then a much cheaper exit gate so it can be built in a combat zone. Ideally would be one way only...

    Sorry for the lack of posts here recently again. And thanks for the support :)

    Honestly sounds like a good idea and I would have liked to do something like that, but it appears that it is not possible for us to implement a separate teleporter. So basically if I did do a titan gate, you could ingame connect it to a normal gate and send a Titan through the titan gate to come out of the normal gate.

    Same thing if you did a naval teleporter for example, you could link it to a land tele and send ships through causing all sorts of issues. So in the end due to this we are unfortunately not able to do this.


    Also as soon as the bot and vehicle foundries are all textured I'll start posting more ingame screenshots and all that. We are getting there with the "pre-properbalance" release.
    So estimate is still nearing the end of December, if things don't go according to plan for some reason then January next year (Hopefully this won't be the case).

    EDIT:
    Right now I am working on finishing off the T1 Orbital Foundry.
    After that I'll either be moving onto the Anti Nuke or T2 Flyer Foundry.

    Also wasn't able to do my original idea of a structure that launches teleporters with a limited lifespan, so had to settle for something else. Even then the new thing is turning out well.

    We also cracked how to get the AI selecting a particular commander so the AI can be assigned to Legion. That's right. We*.

    That would be no fun for the players an AI that always wins.

    Anyways back on topic. It looks like it's progressing at a steady pace now.
    Lot's of new models coming in, texturing going on, animation and effects being worked on.
    AI work starting up again.
    Some cool unique units that are quite different from vanilla.

    Going to be fun to do playtests in the coming months.

    So thanks to @Alpha2546 we have a bunch of really nice in-game screenshots to share now :)

    As mentioned earlier thank @Alpha2546 for the awesome screens (I'm horrible at taking them) and give him all the likes next time he posts :)

    EDIT:
    Oh thanks for the bug report @stuart98 but looks like you're using an old build since we've updated the factory models since then.

    You misread, that wasn't a bug report for this mod I was asking you about something affecting a specific model because with ZX0 having seemingly left the community you're the people who know what they're doing with the models now.

    Nice screens!

    The T1 assault bot should have a black center on its gun barrel rather than the grey.

    I've never experienced a nav crash before, so I really have no idea. That seems like stuff meant for the engine creators aka Uber.

    Also yeah I was thinking the same about the barrel.

    I've recently thought of the mod and how this is the salvation of the game. Are you guys planning on doing a GW part for it? Also hav to pffer myself for easying that process and helping with the development in anything code related:))

    the post above makes a good point, will this have a campaign? the lore is there and it would really help develop your new faction.

    It will not have a GW mode because I tried to do one once and it just didn't work and there was no explanation other than voodoo sorcery. GW is broken, effort spent on it is futile.

    Yeah GW would be painful to mod.
