    Current version : Alpha 3.5



    New planes in the sky of Vox Populi

    EAW is a simple and new concept that promises to improve the gameplay while being perfectly manageable by the AI.
    New Air Units come through an entirely new line interspersed with the existing one which remains almost intact. Therefore, a greater variety of Fighters and Bombers will be involved in conflicts between civilisations. Even yours...

    This third release is still an Alpha version !
    It doesn't mean that it doesn't work! In fact it works very well, you'll see.
    Actually, I'm on it for long time trying different concepts and fine tuning everything to make sure that EAW doesn't break anything on VP Air Units mechanics. All is set to make sure AI makes always the best choise among all the new units available.
    It is an alpha version because 'Historical Info' sections in Civilopedia are still empty, because I plan to reskin the Strategic Bomber, because 2 or 3 Flag Icons can be enhanced, and even the unique Promo Icon is not like it should be. All is about aesthetic details actually.


    So, what is new ?

    details04.png


    • At Tech Stealth, the Unit name "Jet Fighter" is replaced by "Stealth Fighter". The Unit name "Jet Fighter" is given to a new EAW Unit at Tech Telecommunication.
    • The MiG-29 and B-52 are available with Autocracy and Freedom next to the Jet Fighter and Strategic Bomber. They do not give an additional tenet bonus.
      ( EDIT: Maybe a little advantage anyway. I'm thinking about something to balance with Order )
    They are there to avoid AI (and you) to stick on Zero and B17 when EAW Jet Fighter and Strategic Bomber are available. Balance and efficiency.​

    What next ?

    Still a couple of things about aesthetic must be improved to reach a nice Version 1.
    Currently on Flag Icons and a difficult TU-95 model reskin.

    Ooh, shiny. Can't wait to see it, and almost want to beg for a preview. Regardless, ENW is an important part of my games these days, and I look forward to trying EAW out!

    May I ask what are the difference between the new fighters and bombers compared to the ones already in vp?

    Strength and Range. Nothing else. AI see and use them as normal Units.
    Only the very special Early Jet P-80 and the Strategic Bomber get a unique Promotion.

    Why do you write in spanish here?
    ------
    - Full test in progress. I want to make sure EAW doesn't break anything in VP.
    - 1 model reskin and a few Flag Icons must be redone.
    - Civilopedia. Nothing done yet.
    It will take me 10 or 15 days probably and it will be amazing.

    Meanwhile, enjoy the perfectly stable alpha version.

    UPs, ok. tzk

    [QUOTE = "Asterix Rage, publicación: 15726878, miembro: 183863"] ¿Por qué escribe en español aquí?
    ------
    - Prueba completa en progreso. Quiero asegurarme de que EAW no rompa nada en VP.
    - Se debe rehacer 1 modelo de piel y algunos íconos de bandera.
    - Civilopedia. Nada hecho aún.
    Probablemente me llevará 10 o 15 días y será increíble.

    Mientras tanto, disfruta de la versión alfa perfectamente estable. [/ CITA]

    Can you provide some more details about new unit lines, or unit uniques? Do you plan to add Combat Drones?

    Here we have some ideas...
    I think these two mods have very much in common, because both try to modify late game air units. It would be nice if they were compatible with each other.

    Nothing in common I'm afraid!
    Air units is a special unit_class coming late in the game. Allowing me to propose this new 2 lines interspersed concept.
    Recon line starts at turn 0 because recon at turn 0 is all you need and evolves on a special combat unit when recon is not all any more...

    However, I look on the work and reflexions of amateurgamer88 with respect but I don't agree with all the changes he suggests. I said it before. I don't think the recon line must be deeply reworked.
    Wait and see how things evolve. It could be an inspiration for the bigger project...

    Amazing mod Asterix.I try this one out but what about adding some unique carriers(Nimtz,De Gaulle etc) since they are connected to air warfare ? Also what about to add some planes to be made avaible for building with the "project" option ? Like with the Manhattan Project.Example moving them away from the Ideological tenets and naming it "Superior airforce project" and who first builds it gets the access to the unit. It would make them much more unique and valuable

    Rather in ENW. But it has to enhance the gameplay.

    I'd like so, but I don't know how to code a "project"

    My focus for now is to make a simple, pure and perfect EAW version 1.0
    Your feedback will speed up this goal.

    Nice idea. It would be good to have one bigger overhaul insted of couple small ones. Easier to make them compatible.

    I also shared some new ideas, because current modded lines are not good imo. Look at what I suggested and share your opinion if you like.
