There are a number of branches, currently in the forms of mutators, under development. These range from jcanesco’s Spring 1940 to the main team’s 1944: Zombies. I think it might be useful to obtain some input on what you want to see focused upon and what you expect from these branches as development continues.
Now, most of the branches take the form of new factions, which as we can see in this thread were not as popular prospective uses of development time as certain other elements. The disclaimer here is, thus, much the same as that of the other thread.
Disclaimer: This input is in no way a decisive factor in our development decisions. What we do is still up to us, or to the contributors interested in particular branches. Just curious for some public input.
Spring 1940 - Jcanesco’s pet project which has not seen development for several months. Focusing first on France, Jcanesco ostensibly plans to present a mutator affording 1940 play based on the Spring 1944 content.
S44: Finland - The development of Finland was long stalled, following the disappearance of Felix The Cat. I have recently returned to work on the faction, which is characterized by a combination of highly well-trained infantry, a variety of guns and anti-tank weapons, and a lack of native armour. This last is supposedly to be supplemented by capturing enemy equipment from the field of battle, hopefully aided by the ambushes they’re designed to pursue.
S44: Italy - This Axis Major is a glaring omission from the original lineup of the game, whose development mostly rests upon Yuri and myself. The faction is ostensibly designed around numerous but often under equipped squads, supplemented by the well-trained and well-equipped elite infantry groups such as the Alpini.
S44: Japan - This Axis Major represents even more difficulty in balance than the other sides, since the strengths of Japan in the air and the sea cannot be effectively included in the game given the scale. Like Finland and Italy, Japan is short on armour, but unlike the Europeans, they also lack the equipment to effectively combat armour. The only person looking at them presently is me, and they are not a priority.
1944: Zombies - Often discussed in jest, 1944: Zombies was tentatively put together by Nemo a few months ago and is presently under slow development. The game mode, at present, involves protecting civilians and waging war despite the interference of the walking dead, though some other variations may be introduced in coming months.
