I think I’m finally ready to announce this, but yes, War Trash update 2.0 is in the works and will be out soon. Now that War Trash’s sequel is going into the testing/acting phase, I’ve had some free time. I once made the joke that War Trash was held together with spit and a bit of string, but after taking a look at it after all these months, I think that’s a fairly accurate assessment.
So how soon will the update be out, you ask? I’m hoping next week actually. At this point it’s out of my hands, as I’m waiting on some new voice acting. It will definitely be out by August 11th at the very latest.
You may have noticed that I skipped a few numbers and went straight to the futuristic 2.0 designation. Is this jump warranted? Absolutely, for I have fixed and added several things.
I’ll have the full list of additions and fixes when it’s released, but right now I can say that there will be a brand new side quest, three new and fully voiced characters, and I’m opening the town of Corn Creek.
As for bug fixes: I’m fixing that stupid Ian Black spawning bug once and for all, I took out the weird Octavius disappearing thing, completely overhauled the navmesh in every area, and I’ve rebalanced the difficulty slightly. I’m hoping to fix the Freeside Open compatibility issue, but that’s going to have to wait for 2.1, sorry. There will be more fixes of course, that’s just a sample.
I know I haven’t been active on the forums lately, if at all. For that I apologize, but the honest truth is I have severe social anxiety issues. I’m far too worried about the negative comments and insults. But I have been keeping an eye on the page, and I noticed a strange spike in popularity recently. War Trash is now in the 47th most endorsed quest mod, and for a first attempt, I think that’s pretty good.
For that I can only say is thank you. Thank you to everyone who enjoyed War Trash despite its glaring flaws and ugly, laggy trailer. Here’s hoping 2.0 will make it great and with any luck War Trash will become the 42nd most endorsed mod.
