Well its been a few months since our last release but we are pleased to now announce that Alpha 3 of Rising Storm is now ready for download and testing by the public, as always the latest Alpha build of Rising Storm can be downloaded from the following link

Rising Storm Alpha-3 Download

Alpha-3 Change List: Some of the key fixes and features and bug fixes as listed

New Game Play Features:

Win Game condition now set so player wins once enemy is sacked.


Bugs fixed

Path finding fix and networked streaks (which were in 56 patch 1 and 56 patch 2)

Multiplayer hosting and joining issues fixed so MP should now be stable for multiplayer gaming

Brightened up the altar and the thunder workshop

Fixed the pathfinding so that gatherers don't stop late in the game

Bridge system revamped to increase game performance and speeds.

Removed the random white dot thing

Fixed a problem where the path following would cause stutters (there's still an issue with placing objects late in the game, I'm not sure what that is...)

Fixed the thunder cannon's aiming.

Did some work with the gatherers so they don't teleport quite so much during high lag, not yet perfect


New Meshes

New resource gem from biss model

New Island edge meshes from Feng

Sun Stone tower updated by Feng
Outpost model retextured by Feng

I haven't fired it up yet. I'm right on the cusp of finishing ME3 so I'll fire it up once that's put to bed.

I like what I saw when I tried the alpha. It needs more in terms of UI tweaks so that someone like me who hasn't played in years can have a clue what to do, but otherwise it was pretty solid!

Needa our interface artist finished up the last batch of interface elements and posted them for the coder to implement in game so he had a little time so he did up this RS based joke gaming card



On the model side I can say that we will really soon have the first glimpse of the newly finished Rain acid barricade mesh.. I have seen the most recent work on its texturing and its truly a breathtaking retake on the classic unit with a few minor adjustments.

Ladies and Gentlemen Today I am very pleased to announce we have some brand new content updates from the Rising Storm fan tribute project to showcase!

These following pictures are being posted here first before being showcased anywhere else so that COG gets first glimpse..

To start off we have a brand new rain player unit ready to showcase that is the ever handy Acid barricade!





So as droplets of the rains of life can bring life to parched soils and land so can the elements of rain erode and dissolve! Unknown Rain Priest

Feng has also finalized the ice cannon along with its ice shard projectile!



Feng our head texture artist and modeler has also done new island textures to allow for unit platforms for rain player to now have an icy snow cover and main islands owned by rain to also have snow these updates will be implemented soon!

Lastly here is a group shot showing the new platforms and rain units all together!


Not that very visible but in background of the group shot is the rain temple! Feng has started re-skinning the temple and bring it up to quality to match all other rain units and also fix errors that were with the temple! Once the rain temple is re-textured it will look much better in-game and also be more optimized.

Screenshot from build 62 of RS, the new build now includes the islands undersides so islands are now no longer flat on the underside. Feng still has to do the replacement texture since the undersides of islands are using a temp one that does not match up perfectly.
