Hello Everyone!While we continue to work on the first implementation of artillery to the game we thought it a good time to show you all a bit of some of the other content we're working on which is to be released at some point after the introduction of artillery as well as give you all a brief update about the progress of the artillery development itself. But first we have a new sale to announce!
War of Rights is currently 40% off!
Part of the Steam Lunar New Year sale for the next 4 days, War of Rights is now 40% off! We hope you will all join us in giving the new recruits that are about to swell the ranks the warmest of possible welcomes!
Cavalry Development Showcase
The development of the cavalry army branch is progressing nicely, we think (we hope you will agree!). It being a major content addition coming to the game after the introduction of artillery, we hope you're looking forward to be exploring its uses on the field of battle as much as we are.
For now, we're pleased to be able to show you the very first in-engine screenshots of several cavalry horses complete with all of their tack, supporting CSA specific as well as Union specific variations as well!
Artillery Progress ReportThe introduction of artillery into the alpha as soon as possible remains the absolute priority of the team. A lot of work is currently being done in order to make the limber chests functional in-game, allowing the players to not only move the limbers themselves in order to keep the ammunition supply as close as possible to any cannon or battery on the move, but also to allow the crew to open the limber chest lid, select each shell they wish to pick up individually (consisting of several different shell types) as well as the option to move over the tray of tools (which hides half of the shells in the limber chest) to the other half of the chest, exposing the remaining half of the ammunition of the chest for usage.
It is quite the task from a systematic as well as animation setup point of view but we're happy to let you all know that we're making progress in allowing the above stated to happen.
That's all for now - we hope you're looking forward to be greeting the new players welcome as well as the introduction of artillery and the eventual addition of cavalry as much as we are!
