Blood and Steel est un mod de Spring qui semble être axé sur des affrontements terre-air.

📕 Description [en]

A Spring mod, that seems focused on earth - air confrontation.

The game works like this:

You start off with your Port (which is an air base). Your Port is like the commander, you only get 1, and if you lose it you lose the game (only 1 unit can damage the port*). It also is the spawn point for your units.

You get your main force when the reinforcement timer is full, and then it restarts. You can add to the timer charging rate when you capture the objective points (city blocks). Your forces are dropped off in waves of 8, picked randomly according to the units weight (the more powerful the unit the less likely you will receive them).

There are also supply centers (refineries) that you can capture, that don't really do much right now, but help spawn air forces faster.

To win the Game you need destroy your enemy's Port using Combat Engineer's Special Ability, the Satchel Charges. No other weapon will damage the Port.

The Main Forces:

There are 4 classes of units: Infantry, Land Vehicles, Defensive Structures, and Aircraft.

There are 5 types in each class, was originally 4 based of each unit type was to specialize countering another class (such as anti air, anti vehicle, etc..), but a 5th reconnaissance type was added to all classes.

Most of the units have special abilities as well that you can activate with their button (haven't got a hot fix key for it yet would be great though). These abilities generally change the role or increase some of its characteristics (such as firepower or range or LOS), but at a cost.

The following is the list of units, their roles, their normal abilities, and their special abilities for the 1st race (the only one currently in the game.)

Infantry (All infantry also have the ability to cloak at 1/2 speed and are not picked up by radar)

🚧️ Installation [fr]


▸ Installation principale :
Comme pour tous les jeux utilisant le moteur de Spring, il est nécessaire d'installer :
• le moteur Spring (suivez les instructions de la fiche Spring du Bottin, en dépôts, la 1ère installation nécessite une petite phase d'initialisation des répertoires, mais c'est rapide),
• une ou plusieurs cartes (au format ".sd7", à copier dans ~/.config/spring/maps). Sur la fiche "Spring - [Ressources]" nous en listons quelques-unes, classées par thème),
• ce jeu (voir la section "Resources", livrable au format .sdz, copiez-le dans le répertoire ~/.config/spring/games/)

Cartes conseillées :
• Voir la fiche "Ressources - Spring" du Bottin


Si vous avez installé spring via les dépôts Debian, en console lancez : $ spring

🔍️ Test [fr]

🕵️ Test (Spring + Blood&Steel beta 03) : fonctionnel, très bien.
🕵️ Test (Spring + Blood&Steel beta 03) : non fonctionnel (le jeu n'apparaît pas dans la liste, on ne peux donc le lancer).
🕵️ Test (Spring 104 + Blood&Steel beta 03) : idem, non fonctionnel (le jeu n'apparaît pas dans la liste, on ne peux donc le lancer).
