The Imperial Realm: Miranda Hits Pre-Alpha 3

Robert Basler announced today via his blog that The Imperial Realm: Miranda has received a major update, bringing it into Pre-Alpha 3. This new update has necessitated a server wipe and testers will be required to make their accounts again. It brings in new Independent Forces, complete with new buildings and units, 65 new components, and 43 "standard unit designs."


The real meat of the update, however, is the new combat model. The type of unit and the armor type of that unit now affect weapon effectiveness. Members of different factions will now attack each other automatically unless part of an alliance. Players can also force units to attack an ally or their own units or buildings.

For the time being, testing is still restricted to a select few.
