Still doesn't work for me. Whenever I host Nomads game, I get a message saying "Connecting" with a button "Abort Connect". This message remains no matter how long I wait and clicking "Abort Connect" takes me out of the lobby.

Not sure if it's relevant but I have both FaF and SupCom FA on my D:\ drive not on C:\.

does playing normal faf games work for you? If yes, try to clear your game files (option in the faf lobby). If that doesnt help, plz post your game.log in the tech support forum.

they need to be integrated into the basegame already.
Such an amazing job which is clearly an expansion moreso than a mod as that.
It saddens me though that every game that allows nomads is mostly everyone picking nomads.
making them part of the basegame would really just straighten this dynamic and allow for even better balancing and discussion.

I agree they should be in the basegame, for a very simple reason : if people don't want to play them, then they don't, but if I do want to play them, why couldn't I ? Don't tell me to host a nomads game because I tried dozens of time and I never managed to get a Seton full.
I mean, if the excuse is "I dOnt waNnA plaY aGaiSt nOMads gnegne" then do we use vanilla as default for people who don't want to play agains Seraphims ? That doesn't make sense. It will take a few game for everyone to learn the strengths and weaknesses of the Nomads and then people who enjoy playing them will be able to play them unlike now.

simple reason:
they're not polished enough
i wanna play random faction but don't wanna play nomads
i don't wanna play vs a faction i don't know in an unfinished state
Spoiler: show
you not being able to fill a lobby with nomads in a timely fashion is not a good reason to put them into the main game

Not to mention the game is undergoing balance changes for the base 4 factions. Adding a fifth would severely complicate things...

since I read that a few times, maybe you can make a topic in the nomads forum about which part of nomads is unpolished in your opinion and prevents them from being implemented. I will then see what can be done about that.

very easy and very possible to implement. A similar thing exists in phantom-X and would be added when nomads are integrated in the main game as well (at least at the beginning). Maybe even a further advanced functionality where you can select which subset of factions you want to play.

easy solution: play them more or play vs them more. Thats nothing that can be fixed on the mod side of things.

It got more complicated when seraphim were added, FA even added units for other factions... thats absolutely no argument why they shouldnt be integrated.


If you dont like something in the mod try to be more precise about what you dont like and make a post on the forum about it instead of saying "they are not polished" or "its complicated when we put them in". That's an absolutely meaningless complaint and can be said by anyone who never even played the mod once...
