Hello everyone, today is the release day for Nomads V 86
This patch contains 81 commits, since the last minor patch 85, and 114 commits since the last major patch of V83 which we announced just a couple of months ago!
Altogether, this means that the nomads mod is twice as active by commit number as any other official faf project in 2019! Undieing gratitude goes out to everyone who made this possible!
You can play the newest version right now by clicking the nomads featured mod from the list on the side of the client, enjoy!
You can talk to us, see what we do, get help with modding supcom from the resident experts and much more on the Nomads discord server.
Highlight for this release:
The T4 transport has been replaced with a brand new model! We’ve put it next some other units so you can appreciate how huge it is.
Aside from just visual improvements however, we have also reworked all its code from the ground up, making it much, much easier to use! If you have played earlier versions of Nomads before, you may remember it had a tendency to fly off instead of picking up units, which has been much improved, allowing you to pick up and drop things off anywhere you please!
As we mentioned in our development diary last week, we worked out how to fix the issues with transport slots, and as a result the T4 transport can carry a lot more lower tech units than before! Additionally, its special transport slot now doesnt interfere with the others, letting it carry both a beamer (or any ship!) and a whole army at the same time!
There is much more in this patch than just that so to see all the changes, and to leave your much-needed feedback, you can check out the accompanying forum post here: http://forums.faforever.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=14315&p=178296#p178296
