After a few months a new coop update arrived. Even when most of the things were released 2 weeks ago, I’m posting about it now, since there were small problems with getting a new mission online. The main features of the updates that happened in last 2 weeks are:
New lobby option to disable the timed expansion. After reading some feedback I decided to include an option to disable this new feature of some of the missions.
4th Cybran mission was redone, all the problems including the OP attack on the South Node should be solved now. The AI should also perform better, especially in the first part of the mission.
A brand new mission, Operation Rescue. It’s a UEF mission for 4 players, takes 30-60 minutes to complete.
The update also contains several bug fixes and improvements to some of the current missions.
You can find the full changelog for missions here: https://github.com/FAForever/faf-coop-maps/blob/master/changelog.md
and for the coop mod here: https://github.com/FAForever/fa-coop/blob/master/changelog.md
If you find any issues make sure to report them. Preferably on Github: https://github.com/FAForever/faf-coop-maps/issues or on the forums. (Don’t forget to include the game.log!!)
Coop Slack Channel
If anyone is intrested into making a new mission, improving the current ones or helping with voice overs, there’s a #coop channel on the FAF Slack. Slack is a tool that all FAF developers and contributors use to coordinate our efforts. For joining PM me (speed2) your e-mail adress either in the chat or on the forums and you will recieve an invitation.
More work was done on the Novax mission, 50% of the last part is done. There might or might not be more progress with the Nomads campaign, but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to talk about it so I’ll say I don’t know anything.
