Come join us on Discord!

Did you know we are porting this mod to Unreal Engine? You can follow its development on our website, empiresmod.com

Changelog:

Features

  • Increased player icon fade distances 4000 units for revive, 3000 for everything else (ammo/health/squad icons).
    • Also increased their scale very slightly as of last patch.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that would cause certain buildings to stop functioning after triggering it to recycle, then cancelling the recycle. (Turrets/Radar(Vehicle scanning function only, research capability was unaffected))
  • Fixed a visual bug with melee which would cause the dynamic crosshair to expand even though it didn’t increase bullet spread.
  • Fixed vehicle preset ordering to fix issues with commander interface dropdowns.
  • Fixed a bug with vehicle looping sounds (Engine sounds mostly) being hardcode limited to 2500 attenuation distance, regardless of the sound script’s attenuation definition.
    • Along side this general vehicle sound attenuation has been increased, meaning you can hear them from futher away. (And louder for longer distances)
