Can we see some screenshots, at least?

Thank you for your effort for this great wargame.

Being worked on a lot. Summer has seen various Cons and vacation and family events. We are not quite ready for screenshots just yet. I can say we are pouring a ton of effort into the UI, Scenario Editor, data structures, maps and scenario setups for the new game engine. As with all small team projects, things are going slower than we would like, hitting more bugs than we would like, coming up with more features and ideas that we have to relegate to future builds, and also looking at getting a few more heads and hands involved to make this all work out. We want to start talking about the new stuff and the changes as bad as you want to hear about them. We are all going to have to wait a bit longer.

Repost from Facebook a few days ago. Sums up where we are right now.

Things have been quiet for a while and I wanted to let everyone know that we are still working hard on Southern Storm. We are behind on schedule due to a number of real-life items with the team, vacations, illness, and jobs. As soon as we get our website up and running (that's on me atm), we will start talking about some of the new features and changes to our Cold Wars game engine that we will use for Southern Storm. For now, enjoy the end of your summer (or other region-specific weather)!


Once things calm down a bit more we will start talking about the game. Rob has been coding a bunch and the rest of the team is dealing with many other things like data, combat/spotting refactoring of the code, art and documentation, maps and scenarios, and a number of other items we need for the game. Screenshots will have to wait for a while until we have thing finalized enough to not just be confusing. We are doing many UI/UX changes for the new game engine that should help with some of the rough edges Red Storm had.

Once I have some game information to pass on, you guys will be the first to know. Thanks!

MaxDamage,

The improvements are going to be in the new game engine for Southern Storm. There are so many major changes that we are just not backward compatible with Red Storm at this point. Our plan is to redo the Red Storm content (Maps, scenarios, and campaigns) at some point after Southern's release as a DLC module (hopefully with a major discount for RS/GR owners-that still needs to be worked out with everyone). That's all down the road a bit, but we will keep you guys informed.

Any chance that existing user-created content will be included in any future DLC if it is deemed worthy?

It sounds like Hex Draw will be consigned to the dustbin of Flashpoint map-making history?

If it looks like it will take longer than ten-twelve months I might plod away on a couple more scenarios.

WABAC, no current plans for any Red Storm DLC with everyone working on getting Southern Storm up and running. Map making for Southern Storm is still being done along the same lines with William creating new maps for the conflict area. There are also changes to the data file formats which is why the RS maps would need to be reworked as noted above. If folks make or update Red Storm content, just let me know so I can get them uploaded to the public FTP site.
