Do you know if the new update will be save compatible when it releases?

Unfortunately it wont be. I had to remove a module from the Einhänder to get drone weapon swapping to work consistently, which is the cause.  :'(

If the new update isn't save compatible, then I'd say you're doing it right, by having it full of new content. That's the best way to do save-breaker updates.
I'd say you should take your time and make sure you get in all those major save-breaker changes in before release.

Aye. Weird that of all things was the save-breaker (though I guess WINGCOM changes technically also would have done the same)

Either way, it's not much longer now. Release will def be by the end of the month.

If we're on the topic of soundtracks, might I suggest the Reflex soundtrack and its franchise's ?

them's bullet hell games though, so do expect some high rythm stuff....

updated. see the first page for details.
Quote
V2.0
--------------------
- Curvy Laser
   - Reduced number of projectiles generated by 50% to improve performance
   - Proj Speed: 525->650

- New Ship, Valkazard
   - Added new start for starting w/ (ArmaA(Pirates)) (w/ super cool special snowflake nex start text by timid! wowee)
   - Can be found via exploration otherwise
- New Ship, Broadsword(AA)
- New Ship, Warthog(AA)
- New Ship, Kouto E-Type
   - 8 DP
   - fleet support, grants damage buff to random number of enemy ships based on ECM rating
   - Gun is modular hybrid slot, but since I can't alter weapon muzzle effects done """incorrectly""" it only use weapons on a whitelist by default
      - if you want to slap anything you want on it, can edit this in modsettings by adding "ALL" to the whitelist

- New fighter, Valken(P)
   - Carries Anti-Ship Sword, HE weapon with limited uses
- New Fighter, Prodromos Battle Armor
   - Fragile but effective anti-fighter/PD unit

- Advanced Optics(AA)
   - Can no longer be built in
   - Reduced Range: 100->50
   - OP: 5-> 3
- Removed debug text that appeared when using Curvy Laser

-Laser Blade(s)
   - Increased on-hit knockback. Knockback effect is produced so long as blades are in contact with objects (so spamming blades on top of things should push you further back than just hitting a ship with the end of the blade. Hitting small objects such as fighters and missiles should produce no knockback, usually)

- WINGCOM SUITE:
   - Can now be used on standard carriers
   - Ships that shouldn't be able to equip, but somehow have it anyway, will have their fighters launched from offscreen/other carriers as other wingcom units do
      - This is determined based on weither the ship inherently has fighter bays or not
   - optimized code a bit
   - Externalized strings to modSettings
   - added dialog lines for remaining vanilla fighters
   - added dialog lines for a few mod fighters
      - Additional lines can be added with magiclibs modsettings by using "special_wing_lines" map (look at armaa's mod settings for an example)
   - Removed glow/jitter effect
   - wingmen will now use different dialog based on the character's 'voice'
   - wingmen will appear in battle as a pilot of their respective fighter
      - can also gain new skills over time and level up
   - Adjusted font colors for more uniformity with normal hullmods
   - In smaller battles where ships deploy closer to the center of the map, wingmen will now spawn a few thousand SU away instead of from deployment zone if no carrier is present
        - Max stat bonus conferred by relationship reduced to 30% (was 75% for defensive and 37% for offensive)
   - Added support for multiple wings
   - Implemented GUI for changing squad name/callsigns. Heavily based off of a butchered carcass of Nexerelin's Insurance GUI. Thanks, Histi!
   - Added random little blurbs that squadrons will blather on deployment
   - Fixed ships with WINGCOM being considered for relationship modifiers even if they did not participate in combat
   - Fixed retreated ships with WINGCOM not being considered for relationship modifiers
   - Added fluff text for characters with 'villain' voice
   - Added fluff text for characters with 'soldier' voice
   - Wingcom will now check for hullId first before resorting to baseHullId (for fighter skins)

- Strikecraft:
   - AI navigating back to carrier has been improved
   - Will now launch from valid carriers (if any) on deployment
   - Carriers can only supply as many Strikecraft as the number of fighter bays they possess (I.E. a Condor can resupply only two strikecraft at once, as opposed to an unlimited number)
   - Doubled carrier replacement rate decrease while rearming.
   - Fixed Strikecraft changing to Frigate HullSize if they took damage that frame
      - Should fix inconsistency with some onhit effects that used hullsize, fighter damage bonuses from skills, etc
   - Fixed shield damage not being displayed
   - Slightly increased retreat area 2000->2050 in attempt to fix retreat CTD caused by AI attempting to retreat while fighter hullsize
   - Hull and armor now gradually restore over time on carrier
   - Carrier Refit can now be cancelled at any time
      - HP and Armor replenish over time in carrier, so not an all or nothing decision
      - PPT and Ammo are only restored if full refit time is spent
   - added modSettings for custom configuration of refit penalties for (ideally) mod weapons and hullmods, and squadron chatter

   - Aleste
      - Reduced damage by 17%
      - No longer deals EMP damage
      - Increase Flux Cost: 350 f/s

- Aleste(S)
   - Shield Efficiency: 0.8->1
   - DP: 6->7
- Xyphos(AA)
   - DP: 5->7

- Leynos
   - DP: 6->7
   - Added Rugged Construction Hullmod
   - Now uses the better(?) Vanilla Damper AI implementation

updated.
The final infinity stone for my playthrough. Thanks for the update, I'm very excited!

EDIT: Now that I've gotten the chance to play with this some, I feel compelled to come back and say what an interesting and unique package this has become. I haven't played since 0.9, and I think Arma has become an instant classic if it wasn't already. I can see people spending their entire playthrough as a fighter pilot and the way Cataphracts feel and your WINGCOM system with the squads is incredible. Genuinely amazing work, I love it.

SO uh

Not sure if a bug or feature, gonna report anyway to be on safe side

There's a Watchdog that showed up in the missions bundled with the mod with both a Gauss and a Hellbore, and no matter what I tried I couldn't get it to have 2 Gausses or 2 Hellbores

Reporting because after I used the Mod Showcase mission it showed a Watchdog with sets of either double Gauss or Hellbores

Further that "1 and 1" watchdog had a weird behavior in that by clicking the "-" sign next to each arm's weapon the first click would make a weapon option dissappear and do nothing, clicking the second "-" would cause the weapons to switch places

is that supposed to be a thing ?

Looks great, but I wonder if there would be any factional fighters for player to pilot? Might be great to have pather pilotable Talon or something like that.

Probably not. I'll get that fixed.

@farya
I don't have any problem with adding faction-specific stuff. A playable talon might not be very enjoyable, though  ;D
