    Update!

    100th posts on this thread.
    Anyway, I would really like to say that despite has happened for the past week/s; I'm glad to say that sonofjay and a lot of our friends will be staying in the Hive.

    For EchoStorm announcements. There have plenty of changes for the first upcoming map, ES_Excavation. The tileset has been customized and added plenty of futuristic doodads, hopefully, this is the last time I'm going to change the tileset, also there are plenty of gameplay changes, the hireable Jupiner Elephant has been scrapped, for I took clockwork2 advise that it would be far too awkward, the new ammo dump model by eubz for the supply points, and a lot of tweaked ability thanks to NFWar's spellpack, Valkers are capable tossing enemy like a ragdoll, except for Tier 3 special units, and Specter will be having a new Stealth Run; the ability to set explosives on target's while invisible.

    I really want to get some opinion about to new look for Excavation though.

    In other news, Chapter 3 for Liberation is out now! There will be still plenty of tweaking and proofreading may occur though, but please do enjoy it!

    Already, planning up for Chapter 4! Also, I'm thinking of writing a Warpedia; something that tells more about the world of Juno, codex probably.

    Have a nice day to everyone! ^^

    Make the phone lines bigger yo. If anything. They should at least 2* taller than that truck. Other than that. This looks like a pretty interesting project.

    I love the new tileset that you're using, but I hope that when its release, the terrain is not that empty, I know your terraining skill so I know this will be epic as always. :)

    Will be reading Chapter 3 this night.

    The map is still on development and I already have plenty of new screenshots and took a massive change from the alpha versions that was previously released.

    The story taking some tweaking but will not change the majority of the plot itself, so its safe to say you won't have to read the previous ones.

    I'm planning to release some screenshots, an updated thread, a brand new line of chapter and an EchoStorm Timeline werein you could view the history of Juno, I may also throw in some codex about the world information itself, I want to release them all of them at the same time and don't worry, I think everybody's going to love the new changes for EchoStorm.

    Thanks for the new comments though, really appreciated bumping the thread.

    I am mainly intrested in the gameplay. I suggest you make the cog system a little more advanced as it looks too simple.

    If you need beta testers, I would like to apply.

    I'm already scrapping the cog system, beta testers are always welcome, like I said, I'm gonna recreate the front thread...

    Thanks again.

    I can make some basic systems if you'd like, I'm not capable of making it MUI though, so it'll need touching up....
