Now I'm for real. This is the final version of my fan patch. I made this decision because I have a study to attend with, along with others.
Thank you for downloading and using this patch, and let's hope the next official ShW version will be better.


This is a patch I made as an improvement to Generalcamo's Shockwave fan patch from the Open Beta 2 version.

I made this patch completely by myself, starting from a simple mean to tweak the game to a more advanced tweaks which includes various changes, notably in unit aesthetics and gameplay balancing.

I am also currently considering to include this fan patch on ModDB to make it easier to access.

My patch is relatively new, and even I didn't know how many players that have downloaded the patch.

Still, any bug reports and feedbacks would be very helpful for me developing this patch.

I'm actually going to be running a Shw 1v1 tourney at a LAN this friday, and I'll probably use whichever fan patch is the most up to date by then. I'll also try and get as many replays as possible posted and analyzed, might be worth a fair bit for balance analysis.

Due to the cancellation of Generalcamo's fan patch (see here), my fan patch will become the only one that is actively developed, and will be continued from where Generalcamo left off.

As usual, if you have feedbacks, suggestions for the upcoming version, 1.15, and bug reports for the current version, 1.14, please let me know.
Also, any assistance and support in my development will be very much appreciated.

So, since there are two patches out there - GC's Version 3 and yours; I can't tell which one is the most recently updated. I would suggest that you post the most recently updated version into a new thread and call it Shockwave 1.14 (Because it's the fourth version, 1.11, 1.12 and 1.13 done by GC) and give us the most recently updated patch.

After this you can call the next patch Shockwave 1.15 and even make a new thread about it.

Let's keep only one patch and update it numerically so that it causes less confusion and is easier to use and recognize.

Thanks for the heads-up. To make it less confusing and to tell which one is the most up-to-date, now my patch's version is renamed to 1.14 for the current one, and 1.15 for the next one.

Also, I want to announce that 1.15 is almost completed - just only several checks and balances left - and will be released in the coming weeks.

Sounds good to me, and I'll be happy to offer as much constructive feedback as possible from my monthly LAN group's experience.

Feedback I have so far:
V1.14:
China's Frenzy having a 50% level1 damage bonus seems excessive. The Level1 duration is long enough to finish most important engagements with defenses or an opposing unit blob if you time it right, and this will leave little motivation to take successive levels. Perhaps 30% at level1, and 50% at level two and three would be more appropriate?

Kassad RPG Tropper Stinger Upgrade: You've overall decreased the DPS of stinger-equipped RPG troppers by about 18%, and increased the cost of the upgrade at the same time, which seems odd. Stinger troopers didn't feel especially overpowered. Certainly the increased range compensates for this somewhat, but to what extent that matters is difficult to determine.

V1.15:
If you're going to buff the Towne's laser capacitor upgrade, you may want to consider bringing the Laser Crusader's damage down somewhat. Not necessarily all the way to vanilla crusader levels, but certainly closer to them. The tank is extremely cost effective at present, and largely eclipses the laser paladin for this reason.


Also, I'll extend my vote in favor of your proposed changes to USA:SW and USA: Laser particle cannons.

To answer this, at V1.15, Frenzy's damage bonuses will be readjusted to the following:
- 25% at Rank 1
- 33% at Rank 2
- 50% at Rank 3

The Stinger upgrade at V1.15 no longer increases the RPG Troopers' damage and decreases rate of fire, and the cost and time will be reverted back to $1000 and 45 seconds respectively (see the list of V1.15 changes above).

Laser Crusader's damage will be reduced to 80 to (hopefully) make up for this.

Anyway, thanks for the feedbacks.

My pleasure. I'll hopefully have some more to say later this weekend, as well as a pile of replays. Possibly as many as 50 1v1 replays if everyone plays all their matches (unlikely, but I can dream).

The development of v1.15 is almost complete, and the download link should be released soon.

However, I need help on the following things for v1.16:
  • New death effect for Heroic-rank plasma weapons (Alexander's Enforcers and Plasma Tomahawks)
  • Applying the "touched ground" voiceover to Granger's HALO Drop
  • Improving the skirmish AI's script

Anyone who are interested to help me can contact me through PM.

Very good work. This version have the last changes from Generalcamo's Shockwave fan patch by default, or first have what install the 1.13 version before install your versions? And for curiosity, the defenses can attack the USA vehicles' drones before the vehicle or at the same time (Leang have a dual gattling defense what make more easy this attack if the last is true).

I developed v1.15 from Generalcamo's v1.12, so it does not include the changes in GC v1.13.

However, there are some changes in GC v1.13 that I applied to v1.15.

About the drones, it depends on how close the drone or the vehicle is to the defense.

I never made a "1.13". I made beta releases of a 1.11. What are you talking about?

Oh, I'm referring to the Open Beta 2 version of your patch as mentioned above by KÔkashÝ.

Maybe to make it even less confusing, I'll change my patch's name to v1.1a for the current release and v1.1b for the next release.

I've noticed the patch causes errors when running Worldbuilder.

Could be just me, but I doubt it

Correct, the patch seems to cause the ShW WorldBuilder to malfunction.

I'll look into this issue, and for now, I advise to not run the ShW WorldBuilder until this issue is solved.

Some ideas for balancing Laser General:

*Give Laser Designator Bases a power requirement of 1. Originally his reactors had increased power to balance the fact that his Laser Tanks required 1 power, but since this is now removed it doesn't offset any weakness.

*Another idea - if power is offline, his Laser Crusaders and Paladins receive a 20% decrease in firepower.

*Move his Point Defense laser upgrade for Battle Drones to the Laser Cannon (Particle Cannon) - similar to the Chinese generals who have high-tier upgrades at the Nuclear missile.

Here's also a glitch I just discovered:

If vUSA Exosuits are cleared by nerve gas or neutron bombs, then they just explode when the other player sends an infantry to capture them.

This should be corrected - or if simpler just either make them immune to nerve gas and neutron weapons, or make them die instantly (like with Combat Cycles).

I'll go with the first suggestion; Laser Designator Bases now requires 2 power and will be disabled while on low power (but the garrisoned troops still can fire out of it). However, this will cause a visual glitch that occurs when infantry enters/exits the Laser Designator Base.

I'll correct this glitch by making Exosuits instantly destroyed when de-piloted.

Also, I want to add that the release of version 1.1b will be delayed due to my campus activities, and I need help on the following things for v1.1c:
  • New death effect for Heroic-rank plasma weapons (Alexander's Enforcers and Plasma Tomahawks)
  • Applying the "touched ground" voiceover to Granger's HALO Drop
  • Improving the skirmish AI's script (if possible)

I need those who are willing to test v1.1b to help me further developing it, as well as v1.1c. For those interested, contact me through PM.

How's progress coming along?

Also, would like to mention that the Nuke gattling cannon's cameo shows up as an officer, along with the text, instead of the nuke gattling cannon

Just a bit longer and v1.1b can be released. I just don't have the time to perfect the patch due to my campus activities.

I'll look into the glitch and correct it when possible.

Hello! I am new to the forums along with being new to the Zero Hour modification Shockwave and I have a question: if I install the latest patch, will the previous patches come with it or will I need to install the previous ones?

Thanks!

So far, the entire patch is contained in one file, so you're always downloading the complete latest version of the patch.
