A standalone expansion is on the way.
You know what this means... pay twice for the very same game.

It means the game sold badly.

Also what will they add, finalyl some unit variety or will this remain a polished version of SimBase?

I haven't got to try it yet *kicks computer*

Though anyone who's seen the ending cinematics must have known that an expansion was coming

Supcom could be fun, if anyone could run it! Even the most high end machines have some sideshow moments.

I rather like the sound of ORBITAL weapons. Even if they are essentially the same workaround as was used in TA by tro, they'd be nice enough supported by the engine ^_^

Many people here are used to well thought out and balanced mods that allow very high levels of play while SupCom was more like they had the idea of huge battlefields and superunits and couldn't think of a good RTS base to add that to so they made some generic filler RTS out of the remaining parts.

There were some cool ideas but it really needed a lot of polishing to be fun. I doubt the expansion is really going to improve on the weak areas. Having a new faction is pretty much worthless because all the factions only have different (but very similar) stats, no different units. Orbital weaponry sounds like something that would never be used in real games. I dunno I guess I'll see what happens.

I found supcom disappointing, but not without merit.

the game touts 100 hundred new units. Now my question is how many units do the current sides have on average. That'll give us an idea of how many of the hundred go to the new faction and whats leftover for new units for the other sides...

Standalone xpansion, 100 new units. Hmm maaaybe if they just threw the old crap out and made 100 new units that are actually interesting. But that's not going to happen. There's going to be the 100 generic old units + 100 new bloat units. Still, I think it will be in this way a bit better with the xpansion then now, even if that's not telling much :roll:

Yeah and another faction, so its more like 10 new units/side that's probably all alike across sides and the rest going to the new faction (counting in buildings as units, wich I think they do) that's kind of like yet another clone of the old factions.
