Indeed.

Myrdal does the coding. A lead designer simply applies their vision to the overall state of the game and would then be moderated by an advisory council who in turn are beholden to the entire populace of Elite Mod players.

Is there a way to make setup teams setting up not show in the Fog of War? Some people abuse it to the point of map hack.

The unit appears visible in the fog of war when setting up. It's basically just that. Have to be looking in the area to see it so if you're not specifically looking for it you might not even know. Once you know about it you start to realize the reason the enemy went back the moment you tried to setup just ahead of them of if they moved forward to immediately focus your setup team. It kills the aggressive suppression team gameplay and makes some matchups completely lopsided where you depend on your sup team.

Tex abused this on me heavily one game and before I realized what he was doing I legitimately thought he had map hacks. Keep your screen on the area you think the sup team will be in and control your units from the minimap. It's bullshit.

I think we need to make the assumption that 2.8 will never truly exist, at this point it is more a myth than an actual patch that'll be released.

I hope that is not a thing, since I've been waiting for a while for 2.8 to be released to start playing again :D

It will. I just need Swifts new map and his old map updates to create a Elite_data.sga release it. Atlas' Data.sga doesn't work. That actually might be the reason for the long wait.

I could release the version now but there are bugs and again i would like the maps so we dont need an update immediately.

I mentioned it to some already but it got delayed till after the Saturday tournament. You asked me to do that, remember?

This is all the more reason why I really need to work on that discord server. So much easier to dispense news that way.

Anyway, update to the update. 2.8 is scheduled for either this Sunday or very early Mon/Tues. I have first half summer finals this week, but after that we're going to move forward in general. That means handling the discord, setting a lead designer and setting up the people who were interested in helping out with the forum/patching.

Good time to answer since I have some clarity of my own!

We've been working on ironing out the last fixes. There's a couple left but nothing too serious. We'd like to get it out as early as tomorrow but I've already been warned that it might have to be tabled till the next coming weekend. It's not that the work itself is incredibly hard at this point, but just workdays and people being available.

I'm also going to have non-balance stuff for you guys very soon in terms of balance lead, discord, codex and such. Just needs to be set up and ready. That shouldn't take very long either. We may or may not have it all wrapped up in a single thread with a 2.8 release or done independently.
