Future Tense Update November 2008 (Weapon Spoilers Included)

Do you want the Good News or the Bad News

Good News

Future Tense is STILL in development...

Bad News

We created a bug whilst creating the AI feeds for the Borg and Federation. The bug crashes all loads mid-way. With the files replaced by the original back ups, the bug now crashes the Federation Fleet and prevents random Romulan weaponry from being used, even thought there are no bugs with them now the game is still crashing. With this in mind it has been deemed easier than rather than sit at the computer for hours and hours like we have been already, to start on a fresh install and place the new prototype units into the game, as well as the new GUI set up and other abilities.

At the moment the Federation are going in first. This will then be followed by the Borg. To ensure the same problem doesnt arise, the AI will be written coded and implemented at that point rather than having all six races up and running and end up with the same back log of problems.

There is good news with this however, the files are a lot easier for the audience to MOD and manage, with all Future Tense index files starting with FT as uppose to formats it was in the past, and map and label files clearly listing Future Tense modifications. Hopefully when Future Tense launches early 2009 people can look at the best bits, and spawn new mods from it (remember direct patches or add ons to Future Tense are not permitted)

Below is a complete Federation Special Weaponry List that have been short listed for the Federation Fleet in no particular order:

The other Races 'may' have variants of these weapons but for the most part each race will have unique special weaponry.


Too early to say, if they assimilate a ship then they'll intergrate the specials into their fleet, but they don't seem to like adapting to make their damage effects negligable so we'll see.
