Everything's all set now, anyone who downloads the client from now on should only need the main client from the Downloads page or this post. I'll leave the Hotfix available for people who already have a Full Client but didn't get it so they don't need to redownload it.
(EDIT: MediaFire seems fixed now.)
I'm a complete scrub and in my rush to put the client up before I had to leave I accidentally added the wrong terrain file.
HAVE A HOTFIX. <--- (Seriously, download it.) (If you don't have a Full Client already you no longer need this, main clients are up to date.)
Once you've downloaded the main client, put this in the root folder and use "Extract Here..." then overwrite all files. Then everything will be A-OK. The main client downloads will be fixed in a few hours when I'm at my PC again.
Universal Century Gundam Online: Icarus-Server has arrived! It's officially Time for Icarus.
With the beginning of our Open Beta testing phase, we've worked hard to be sure all Characters created will be permanent throughout the foreseeable future. This means you can get your feet dry in the sands of UCGO, build up your Characters, and engage in all the mechanized mayhem an open world environment like UCGO has to offer.
If you're a new player confused on what to do or just looking for some tips and useful info, we've created the Icarus-Server Beginner FAQ which contains a semi-walkthrough for a first day logged into UCGO, some basic info about facilities and NPC zones, tips on how to help yourself stay funded if money becomes tight, and other basic info about the game. Remember, if you're confused about some of the more complex game mechanics we've added, we also have the Icarus-Server Custom Game Mechanics FAQ which helps clarify them.
However, if that's too much reading, this video courtesy of TheCyclopsTeam also explains many of the new game mechanic and features you can expect to see in-game:
- Tailoring is not implemented. (Sewing Shops in turn are also disabled.)
- Toy Shops are not implemented.
- Tasmania is not implemented.
- Space is not implemented. (Spaceports in turn are also disabled.)
- Dismantle popup says Failure when Dismantling to Metal + Engine, does not affect output.
- Some minor invisible walls around Weapon Factories. Only noticeable in Elecars. Will be fixed later.
- Help window in-game is untranslated. Will be repurposed to something more useful in a future update.
All of these will, of course, be fixed / included / implemented in future updates, so don't let anything listed here get your spirits down too much.
Everything you need to know about the game can also be found in our Game Guide, your one-stop-shop for Crafting Recipes, Stats, and anything else you might need to know. If you're looking to discuss everything related to Icarus-Server, such as gameplay, teams, trading goods and services, or anything else, our Official Forum is probably where you want to be. Our Server Comments will also be open as usual.
For now, however, hopefully everyone can get in game and have some fun!
