A few more episodes of Xenoforce Reborn Videocasts and an update on Alpha 8

So it's been awhile since I've posted a new update to the mod, and over a month since the last update to the mod. Truth be told, I could have released the 8th alpha about 3 weeks ago with just the update adding AW to the mix, but I honestly didn't want to. No, Alpha 8 will be something different. Alpha 8 will bring new things to all 3 sides of the Earth Federation. Of course it will give AW an actual force to use, but it will also be a complete restructure of the UC timeline (with melee attacks added into certain Gundam units) and the addition of the Artimis system to Seed!

Unfortunatly, I'm about 20% done with UC at this point and haven't even started to add the new Artimis systems coding into the game (the model is done at least). I have about 4 or 5 more models to make, that's assuming nothing comes up that we realize needs to be in. Ones I really need and would rather have donated than actually have to make myself (I'm lazy when it comes to modeling ok? I admit, I'm not a modeler at heart lol) is the GP02 model and the Jegan, but I'll make them if I have to.

So you'll just have to wait awhile longer for Alpha 8. It's probably a few weeks off to say the least, sorry folks.

And here are some more of Dougs Xenoforce Reborn Videocasts. I find them entertaining, and I hope you do too.

Whoaaa very good progress. I have an idea, why you don't make all the units changed between ranged and melee that would be awesome!!!!

I don't know if the way doug is currently presenting the project is safe.

You guys are dangerous on a few points. I am not sure how much of what doug is describing is done or in currently planned features. He speaks about a lot of the gameplay in present tense which promises a lot to the players. I am not sure how much of that has been implemented which is dangerous. It will help raise interest but it is dangerously close to hyping the project. That is bad because it will set us up with expectations that might not necessarily be true.
