Hello everyone!
It's that time of the year again! The ModDB Mod of the Year award nominations have officially begun just a few days ago!
Last year we came in second for the Player's Choice awards, which was great and solely made possible by all you guys!
If you like our mod and think we are deserving of your vote, than please do so and let's see if we can best that result this year.

Additionally, we have decided to go public with the testing of Version 1.87 so everyone can download and actively participate in testing.
More info can be found in the stickied topics on the forum here: http://forums.swr-productions.com/index.php?showforum=121 (please note that you require a registered and activated forum account and must be logged in to access this forum)

With all that being said, enjoy this weeks update with some cool goodies for the GLA:


The combination of anti-globalist/capitalist political ideology and radical salafism has proven to be extremely effective in attracting disaffected recruits for the GLA from nations around the world. From the former come many of the organisation's demolition specialists, such as the 'Wall Street Bombers' whose series of attacks on banking houses and business individuals around the Manhattan Financial District in 2042 revealed that the reach of the Global Liberation Army once again extended to American shores. In combat, GLA-affiliated Anarchists tend to be armed with a variety of hand grenades and home-made explosive devices which they can set up for area-denial purposes. Unlike their religiously motivated Terrorist cousins, Anarchists are utterly devoted to their goal in ensuring that the world shall suffer "no gods, no masters" - A stark ideological contrast which, according to recent intelligence analyses, has led to disputes among the GLA's top level leadership.


An archaic Bell 47 helicopter converted into a light gunship and chemical weapons dispersal platform. Despite the age of the airframes, these choppers prove to be effective in harsh environments due to their mechanical simplicity and ease of maintenance. Known as the infamous Plague Dusters, the GLA has outfitted their helicopters with anti-armor rockets, Stinger missiles as well as sprayer nozzles taken from crop duster aircraft. The sprayer nozzles are capable of dispersing weaponized Anthrax spores or other biological or chemical weaponry. As a result, the Plague Duster has become feared throughout Africa as a terror weapon designed to massacre entire populaces opposed to the GLA. Due to the helicopters' non-existent armor, the pilots are known to chew khat in order increase their reflexes and banish fear before going on missions.


This fortified structure is intended as a more permanent upgrade to the GLA Sneak Attack tunnel (and replaces all prior advanced variants in game). The GLA Lair is capable of requisitioning Workers and other basic GLA units for deployment onto the battlefield.

And a friendly reminder that this upcoming Sunday, we will be doing another official live stream of the newly released public build.
The stream will as usually be hosted by Hecthor Doomhammer on his channel: https://www.twitch.tv/pauljongejans



Countdown until the stream starts

Nice, so the Anarchist replaces the Terrorist for 1.87 but latter returns as a Terror Cell exclusive?

Also the link to the 1.87 build is broken.

Man just today I was watching a recorded stream and thinking that I needed to play it so badly, and play with Mizo's big new AI. Or at least catch the next stream because I'm never able.

And today, just because I decided to check, I got both. It's a strange feeling, a good one. I appreciate this buddies.

Oh and pleased to meet you, ROTR is pretty based.

Thanks Mizo, you weren't kidding when you said you rebuilt the AI from scratch, even on easy they do a lot of different things now. I saw hijackers being used, they expand to and defend supply sites...a lot to see and experiment with, this will keep me occupied for a looong time. I just love poking and seeing how it reacts, I wonder if they still have the free funds when needed or you can actually cripple their economy now. I'm not even talking about those delicious new units and thingies yet, this is neat.

So much to play with and so begins the long sleepless night.

The AI has a new fund system based on their acheivements :

Naturally they get a very small amount of income every minute , around like 1500$ but that improves when the AI reaches milestones such as keeping their tier1,tier 2 alive, building a superweapon, expanding, killing a considerable amount of enemy units ect...

If they stay dry for more than 1 minute, they will get a considerable income boast just to help them out abit, but nothing too fancy.

Glad you are enjoying it smile.gif

That's awesome and sensible enough. You can bet your ass I'm having fun with this, with any luck I might be able to get the bug hunter license while playing.

Waiting for the saturday night update
Update gets posted, excitement rises
I rush to log in and get my hands on this juicy piece of software
fail login 3 times
"you're account has been blocked for 15 min."
fml

In general i am pleasantly suprised with this public beta. I am really gonna enjoy checking out the new units and abilities, the AI has me very excited.


Oh and by the way, this line is a great example of ROTR storytelling:
Due to the helicopters' non-existent armor, the pilots are known to chew khat in order increase their reflexes and banish fear before going on missions.

Love it and thank you for releasing this

I haven't been able to play since i lack a mouse, but the AI looks very promising. Easy does what it is supposed to do: Go slow, still showcase all the units and give new players a changen to try things out. Medium is how medium should be more presure by sending more units and teching up faster. I didn't check hard, but on the other two there are big battles, base expansions, ambushes and other skirmishes going on around the map. I like it, can't wait to use the munition bunker molemines.

The people on moddb have no idea what is coming their way biggrin.gif

Shit got too cocky and I almost got rekt by an easy Russian AI with his China buddy AI, they focused me like crazy, all those planes, goliat enabled hinds and god damnded artillery. Is this payback for all my bullying to the poor old AI? Did I mention the russkies just planted a grumble just outside the range of my mortars? Like zero fucks given.

This will take some time getting used to, it's almost spooky.

Yeaaaaah...later. Much later. Incredibly later even. Need to get better macro because the usual skirmish bunker isn't cutting it anymore, but rest assured that after seeing the "easy" one I know it will be crazy. Mizo you madman.

Easy doesn't use that much artillery , or atleast it's pretty pretty tame and late compared to the other 2 difficulities.
But yeah be warned, theyre not pushovers anymore.

If you ever decide to invade Russia, for the love of God, bring some warm clothes. We don't want you to blame the "evil Russian winter" when you get crushed, like everyone else who tried.



This is great! Just tried the PB, and I have to say that the AI is magnificent! Way smarter and thus, much more interesting than before. Everything seems great. And the Blackbear! Jesus Christ. It's indestructible. Heroic Blackbear is the single most powerful unit in the entire game. The rate of fire, range, versatility and the sheer power. Damn.
