Eine kleine Ewigkeit ist es mittlerweile her, dass die Mod Empires ihr letztes Update erhalten hat, jetzt aber ist es wieder einmal soweit. Rund 20 Entwickler haben nach Angaben des Projektleiters "Trickster" an der neuen Version 2.4 mitgewirkt, welche dank Steam-Support automatisch für Besitzer des Spiels aktualisiert wird. Alle anderen klicken auf den nachfolgenden Link.
Diese umfasst umfangreiche Änderungen in allen Bereichen des Spiels. So wurden etwa neue Maps, zum Teil aus der Community, hinzugefügt und bestehende überarbeitet und das Aussehen sowie die Eigenschaften der Vehikel verändert. Je nach Map kommen diese nun in anderen Tarnfarben daher. Wie ein Screenshot zeigt, wurde auch das Commander-Interface verändert, um das Handling zu erleichtern.

Den Changelog haben wir wie bei jeder Steam-Mod direkt unterhalb der News angehängt, die zahlreichen Balance-Änderungen sind allerdings dem Hinweis nach nicht aufgeführt. Das neue Update bietet eine gute Gelegenheit für jeden Empires-Oldie oder -Neuling, sich auf die, auch nach Jahren immer noch gut bevölkerten, Server zu stürzen.

Sind die 8 Steam Achievements denn auch "unlockable"? Ich frage nur, dass es die acht Steam Achievement schon etwas länger gibt, nur waren diese nicht freispielbar. Ansonsten werde ich es mal testen. :)

Mittlerweile habe ich diese Mod kurz auch freispielbare Steam Achievements getestet und so kann ich nun auch bestätigen, dass es der Fall ist. Habe dazu auch eine kleine News in der Astats (Steamgruppe für Steam Achievementfreunde)-Gruppe geschrieben:

Viel Spass allen bei der Mod. ;)

klingt nach einem super changelog. sourcemods sind wie alle anderen mods ja mittlerweile eher zurückgegangen, was auch mit dem massiven überangebot an so gut wie allem zu tun hat. ich freu mich das es noch teams gibt die solche großen updates liefern.
