June Update: Mod Support

June Update: Mod Support

Reporting in, Commanders!

New intelligence has arrived regarding two free updates arriving this summer to offer mod support, securing you greater control over the battlefield. This support will allow a deep level of customisation and ability to change almost any aspect of the game. This will include adding new units, altering mechanics, balance, custom battles, and more. These updates will also deliver new content and quality of life changes to further enhance your experience. The first update will arrive next week featuring:

Modding Tools

Mod Manager

This in-game feature enables the browsing and toggling of various mods. It supports custom player-created LUA and XML mods, textures, models, and audio. Steam Workshop will be supported and Epic players will have access via copying any mods they download into the mods folder accessible via the Mod Manager.

Model Converter

This tool allows you to create models in software such as Blender or use pre-existing ones.

Custom Units

Using these tools, you can create new units or edit existing ones.

Custom Campaigns

Use XML and LUA to create your own Custom Campaigns. Customisation will range from the ability to make simple adjustment to parameters such as starting National Will to broad changes such as custom events, maps AI etc. that would allow for a highly self-crafted experience. The update comes with a sample Custom Campaign, presented as a mod, which will automatically download as part of the update and demonstrate set-up and parameters.
