Airship Dragoon v1.4 Released!

Airship Dragoon has been updated to version 1.4! 

The hardcore, oldskool, GollopLike has had a massive update. The changelog is here!

Airship Dragoon is on Steam Greenlight! Votes very much appreciated!

The much requested map is now a thing! This displays spotted enemies and trooper information by mouseover and clicking on a trooper icon makes them the controlled character. No more scrolling through all the troops to select the guy you can see out in front.

And now there's motion captured animations including 26 death animations for a nice variety of having troops throw themselves to the ground in various spectacular and painful looking ways.

Here is a quick video of me explaining some of the fine points of the update. Apologies for the audio quality of my microphone, it's terrible and I think I need a new one.

It's a huge update which removes much of the hardcoding of objects to enable Airship Dragoon to be full modded. Everything can now be changed or tweaked from the damage weapons do, to the actual character models, to the names of the factions and their flags and icons. Full documentation on how to mod Airship Dragoon will be released shortly, and will include video tutorials. A map editor for creating your own levels will also be released.

And here's all 26 of those death animations!

The update is HUGE so there is no patch file this time. Simply redownload and install over the current version which you are using. Your saved game files will be safe! Which is nice ... :)

Note: The Desura version can take a few days to update as it goes through their system, but everywhere else  is live now.

Class based textures


And as said at the top, Airship Dragoon is on Steam Greenlight, and if you use Steam, voting for Airship Dragoon would be very much appreciated!

Here's how it currently stands.
