    Iron Armada ► February Roadmap

    Welcome everyone to the Iron Armada February roadmap update! Iron Armada Pre-Alpha v0.1.3 Welcome to Iron Armada's first proper development blog! In this article we'll cover what we have already accomplished, what has been released to the public, and what we are next looking to complete! Iron Armada is a completely original game, written from scratch in Java by our community developers. If you want to be more involved with project development, make sure you follow the development channels below! If you wish to follow the project, try to stay active in our primary development channels. Successful Greenlight Campaign Iron Armada is going to be on Steam! After a successful Greenlight campaign, we have already begun the process of registering our application on Steamworks, as well as adapting our current game-build to function with Steam's infrastructure. Thank you so much to everyone who helped us make our campaign a successful one, and we'll hopefully have Steam keys available for our active supporters here soon! Our official Greenlight trailer Current Features & Functions The current version of Iron Armada includes our core features, that serve as the foundation of the game, and will be constantly improved over the lifetime of the game. These features currently include full multiplayer gameplay, with multi-crew ships, large fleet faction battles, ship-to-ship boarding, resource mining, and ship construction. Current game features. Upcoming Features & Updates The current features of Iron Armada only scratch the surface of the game's gameplay potential. Over the coming months, we are expecting to begin releasing some of our more advanced features... that we feel will begin completely transforming the game. New features such as ship exteriors, multi-blocks, advanced power systems, new construction methods, rebalanced infantry combat, overhauled weapon effects, overhauled damage effects, and more... will likely turn Iron Armada into an unrecognizable experience. To illustrate some of these upcoming changes, we have prepared the following documents explaining future features. Following development blogs will delve into deeper specifics for each upcoming feature, as well as game re-balance, as development progresses. We're excited to talk in detail about each specific feature seen above, such as ship customization, new infantry equipment, new weapon types, new engine variants, and more. So make sure you FOLLOW FUTURE DEVELOPMENT BLOGS released on our forums! Release Date Iron Armada has a strict "when it is done" development mentality. However, we have already released the public pre-alpha testing build... so hopefully that will keep you entertained until the official Steam release! We are currently working with Steam to adapt the current game to their distribution systems, and we're hoping to have our first Steam keys available to active supporters in the coming month. However for today, that is everything to update you with! Thanks so much for your support everyone, and we all look forward to seeing you on the Iron Armada testing servers! If you have any questions about the project, be sure to visit the forums and Discord! See you soon! - The Iron Armada Team

    Vehicle Sandbox

    Version 1.0

    389 downloads

    A vehicle sandbox created by EA3D. This vehicle system is an excellent example of what the Unreal Engine 4 open development community is capable of. The source code for this project is available to anyone who owns a license purchased through the Unreal Engine 4 marketplace. Drakeling Labs purchased a license to EA3D's work, and packaged a sandbox demonstration for our users to enjoy. This prototype is not networked or replicated, and we are currently researching how to properly adapt EA3D's work to a replicated multiplayer environment. However, the primary vehicle currently features fully simulated suspension, fully modeled interiors, animated doors, animated lights, functional weapons, and a basic destruction model. While we continue expanding this framework within our own projects, we hope you enjoy this basic sandbox showcasing the system's capabilities.

    Voxel Sandbox

    Version 1.0.0

    3,084 downloads

    A voxel sandbox simulation written by CodeSpartan. This project includes procedural terrain and environments... showing the capability of the Unreal Engine when combined with voxel technology. The source code is available on the Unreal Engine 4 marketplace, for anyone to use in their own projects. Drakeling Labs owns a license to the source project, and is investigating the flexibility of its application. The system could potentially be used to power advanced destruction mechanics in first person shooters, or also power limited destruction mechanics for specific entities (such as houses, or walls.) This project has been packaged by Drakeling Labs, and provided for free to our users. Our hopes is that our users will experiment and create with this program, and provide feedback on their experience! This technology may eventually be applied to in-game map editors, which could allow players to create new content for games without needing any Unreal Engine experience.

    Testing Discord Integration

    Testing our new integration with Discord. We should now be able to see all new forum posts made here in our Drakeling Labs server. This will be useful in the future if we want to start allowing suggestion, bug report, or other game-specific forums where getting a centralized flow of notifications is ideal. Currently we're using Zapier for this, but I'd like to find a self-hosted solution to replace Zapier as soon as possible. However this will work just fine until we find a solid alternative, just will be slightly more expensive.

    Youtube's Future

    Didn't have enough time to completely flesh out all my thoughts and observations about Youtube in this one video, but I just wanted to at least make one video talking about how I feel about it. There has been a lot of misleading announcements from Youtube itself, and misinformation blurring the real situation... and I just wanted to voice the reality of what I see, versus what Youtube is trying to have people believe. I have more to say about this, but I guess that will have to wait for a future video.
