Xtreme Wars mod vs game type

0

What is the difference between using the Xtreme Wars mod and selecting the Xtreme wars game type?

Not sure if it matters, but I generally play with friends vs a bunch of AI.

TYIA!

Hello @Niloc1308

The featured Mod you can select from the FAF client is the original Xtreme Wars v1.0.
Its in its original state from 2012.

The one you can download from the vault is a bugfixed and for FAF patched version. (1.4)
you can also download it from here:
https://forum.faforever.com/topic/363/xtremwars-1-4-for-all-game-versions

You can find the patchnotes when you download the mod inside the mod main directory called "Bugfix by Uveso.txt".
There are many fixes, so the file is 860 lines long
In short: Unit bugfix, mod bugfix, patched for FAF and AI scritpts are fixed.

@Uveso, you are amazing. Not just for this answer, but for all the work you do to keep FAF running and relevant. Thank you!

So choosing the 'game type' Xtreme Wars uses the 1.0 version, but playing a normal FAF game and using the Xtreme Wars mod will include bug and balance fixes.

exactly.

And thank you for your nice feedback!

Btw, i mostly don't do any balance changes. I try to keep the mod like the author has created it.
When you see things like aicrash damage, then they where added because they did not exist in older units and
need to be added for FAF.
