FAF Council Promotion

New Promotions Councilor

Heyo everyone! Over the course of the last month or two, Mountain has stepped down from the Promotion Councilor position to hand it over to me, Wise Old Dog. Of course, we appreciate his contributions and help during his time, and I am especially grateful in his help in transitioning into this role, and hope he will stick around to lend any support.

Let me start by saying that the promotions lead in FAF has been struggling, as many of you might already know. I do not plan to take up the whole post explaining why that is, but I and a handful of others are keen on turning this around for our community. Currently we lack access to certain FAF platforms like Facebook and YouTube, however this is in part of the transition. Our plans for reinvigorating the visibility and liveliness of the FAF community will come one step at a time, for every change, and we are open for any help we can get!

Over on the FAF Discord, we have a Promotions Team role that I am set to bring to light once we have reclaimed access to some of the necessary tools. If you would like to join up, the best place to contact me is through Discord (same username, Wise Old Dog.) I will be happy to detail my plans and interests in how we can expand our publicity, and am open to suggestions as well from you guys.

Lastly, if you have anything you would like to see promoted, let me or anyone on the promotions team know (once that is set up), so we can get to pushing it out there for the community to see.

See you around!

– Wise Old Dog

MAP NUMBER 1:
ADAPTIVE AHSSA-SHI

Map By: svenni_badbwoi

The Seraphim just discovered Ahssa-Shi (named after god of reincarnation). The latest scans revealed that the planet is habitable, resource-rich and seems to have had large water reserves. Unfortunately the first exploring mission got somehow annihilated under mysterious circumstances at the landing site, plus the rescue signal was intercepted by the other factions. These events postponed further investigations, in order to win the battle ahead.

Latest version: 3
Highly improved AI path nodes – thx to ‘unknown guru’
Improved script to avoid vanishing decal glitch – map-decal disappeared, when optional structures (probably due to decal) and a certain amount of unit footprint/track-decals were spawned
Props statistics: 48.308 Mass & 84480 Energy
Mapping tools: FAF & SupCom map editor, Inkscape, World Machine, Photoshop, b2ag mirror tool and random prop generator

MAP NUMBER 2:
OSIRIS

MAP NUMBER 1: ASYUT CANALS

Map By: biass

This map is a 1v1 navy map inspired from the gameplay from ‘waters of isis’. This map takes that slower navy play and pushes it into a competitive setting, however as always any strategy should be viable here. It’s 15km, so expect a little longer travel times compared to your regular 10km maps. Have fun, and mind the rocks.

MAP NUMBER 1: ADAPTIVE FAF ATOLL

ADAPTIVE FAF ATOLL

Map By svenni_badbwoi

-Latest version: 1
-Once I got the idea, I could not resist
-Due to the logos nature left-right is the default play style
-But if you like rotational balance e.g. for Phantom or Free For All, just enable “Rotational” in the options
-Every faction is represented in 2 from a total of 8 optional civilian bases. But all bases contain: Seraphim T2 PD, Aeon T2 TMD, UEF Shields and UEF T3 PD to balance unit/reclaim differences
