Hi everyone! Yeah I know, but I haven't forgotten you. Well OK yeah I have but only for a while. I'm still working on the modders page and updates for the FAQ. So stay tuned for a couple of days and we'll have something for you.
To our German friends, hang on in there, you'll make it. The World Cup party won't be the same without you :). To the rest thanks for keeping this an issue and Bien Venue to the lone person from French Polynesia.

Hi all. Just a quick note to bring you up to date. The weapons section
under Ships Loadout has been revamped and has even more information on weapons behaviour. I'm expecting an indepth study of the aggression shields sometime soon. Some minor additions to the FAQ, later today there will be more.
The modders section is almost complete. This will cover all aspects of building your own missions, modifying the game to suit your needs et al. The latest news on modders editing tools for I-War 2; is that it's still in the pipeline but due to the complexities of the scripting methods is requiring a lot more work and will not be ready for some time. I'll keep you posted.
Meanwhile there are more additions to the Joystick control section at the Official Independence War site.

We are falling behind somewhat in our latest additions. However, we have more answers in the FAQ and we have additions to the Tactics page thanks to The Sinner.
