Hello everyone! An year ago, we hold a lot of hope on Universe at War to keep this place flowing. Unfortunately, UAW is not very modding friendly. Ok, it is better than Kane's Wrath at this moment, since we can actually edit the XML files, but it stops here. There is no map editor and no official modding tools at all. And without this kind of thing, it lacks replayability.

The poll for the UAW Level Editor has got more than 100 votes, however, Petroglyph shows no interest whatsoever on publishing their modding tools, which, according to some of them a while ago, they were sitting at Microsoft labs for testing.


And what's left for us? We can sit and do nothing. The site is opened, you can still post tutorials, you can post your maps, etc. But we'll hardly post any updates here because there is absolutely nothing to post. And their next project is some kind of online multiplayer RPG, which certainly won't be moddable at all.

So, we stop here until Petroglyph provides something, but stay tuned at Phoenix Rising mod for Forces of Corruption, which is still going strong.




Update: According to Evania-PG, Petroglyph wants to release the official Universe at War mod tools, but they require the approval from Microsoft and SEGA.

I'd support an "unofficial" leak at this point if PG wanted to oblige...

But they would suffer some serious legal problems with that, unfortunately.

Yeah, if they did it officially. That's why I said "unofficial" :unsure:. Like maybe accidentally uploading it somewhere?

Just sarcasm. But on a serious note, delaying the release of tools is directly responsible for killing a modding community before it can even get off the ground. It's just kind of sad that they seem like they have better things to do.

I agree with your serious note, although I have a feeling that they are kinda impotent in the situation of the mod tools. Or... perharps... they haven't made enough efforts to do some pressure on Microsoft (and Sega?) to release them.
