If you have a 120/144hz monitor you can even tell between
30-60-90-120-144 FPS its very noticable. But if you only have a 60hz monitor it can only display 60FPS.

I for myself play with a 120hz display - the experince is much better and smoother ;)

Once you see a game with 120FPS/120Hz vs 60 FPS/60 Hz you will understand. Once you notice it you can't play on 60Hz anymore...If you don't know it, you don't miss it - that's all ^^ just like SSD/Soundcards.

Showing basic damage of the weapon doesn't make much sense. Damage is also dependent on weapon warhead and enemy armor type. So instead it would be better to just show a weapon name like "120mm AP", "90mm HE", "Rifle", "Rapid Fire Laser" etc.

Any combination ideas? Maybe some kind of suited tactics, like rush, defense, aggressive, recon, support and so on?

This could be usefull with short signs like AA (Anti-Air), LRFS (Long-Range-Fire-Support) or AT (Anti-Tank) etc.

With this system people could see very fast what role/category the unit is part of.


Specter Artillery - LRFS - STHL - LA - SM
Long-Range-Fire-Support, stealth, light armor - slow movement

Astor Feb 13 2014, 6:27pm replied:

That thing can be done, BUT it will change the unit names.

So for example I would change "Disc Thrower" to "Disc Thrower - Infantry - No Armor - Ranged - Slow Movement" or some kind like that. Indeed it would look messy on the sidebar, but you could still disable sidebar texts.

Hmm I look after it.

Astor Feb 13 2014, 2:07pm replied:

Hmm I don't know, it can't be really done in this game. The engine isn't really suitable to add new features. My mod is already flooded with hacks/tricks to get some things to work, the consequences are that we need to sacrifice things like starting units, a cut down version of the RMG and so on.

About the rest, I see balance and bugfixes a higher priority than new content too.

Thanks! I had to stop modding the last weeks as i upgraded my computer. So i had to set up my whole modding enviroment again up.

The new Nod design wont be in this update. It's planned for a bigger later update.

A new interface for Nod/Cabal/Forgotten will be in the update.

ATM I am reworking the file structure of the mod. Results are more smaller files instead a few big ones. This means that updates should be much smaller in future. For example last hotfix was 90mb. With the new structure it would be only 500kb-5mb. I also have removed quite a few old stuff etc.

Astor Nov 12 2013, 11:21am replied:

I thought of uploading in feature a "core package" which includes only those files and a the normal mod package with the mods files. As uploading every time such an amount of data is not fun :/

Hi abel! :)

This mod is more of a total conversion. I had to quite do a lot of work to get 2 new factions working so that players and AI can use them. It's still not finished.

Crystallized Doom does have quite a lot of units. Since version 1.5 this mod is not compatible with the original campaign (most because I have changed lots of critical parts)

In feature we will provide our own campaign with a very complex story Media.moddb.com you will play with each faction and see the story from 4 viewpoints.

Twisted Insurrection is a great mod, it comes also with it's own story. But for me it feels just the same as the original (replacing old units with new). That doesn't mean it's bad, but I want something different. With Crystallized Doom I'd like to achieve that. Here you can find a global techtree Media.moddb.com

Hope that's an answer for you ;)

xD TibEd...it messed a lot of inis for me when I tried first time modding 6 years ago...I used SunForge when I was 12.

No offend to you :P, anyone can use what he likes best! It's just I don't have good memories about TibEd or SunForge...

I still would recommend you Notepad++, working with a colour theme, automatic numbering, splitscreen and anything you can imagine makes working very fast and easy ;) Media.moddb.com

You know, even in vanilla TS you can get desyncs. Why? One example would be if a players build too much refinaries. It's caused by the tag RandomLoopDelay.

The twinkle animations need that tag because otherwise ALL would play at the same time the whole game (this happens when the game starts, but RandomLoopDelay changes that after the first loop)

Yes I am sure :) with animation test MP games desync after 30sec-5min

Astor Nov 10 2013, 4:26pm says:

The Tiberium twinkle effect animation is already included since 1.9 but is disabled in every version. Mostly because it's only suitable for singleplayer - the huge amount of animations gives you a high desync chance for multiplayer. Each Tiberium cell doeas have an animation, so the game has some work to get them all synced with all players.

But I am going to add this as optional feature for people who play only SP or want to try their luck with MP :P

It's open source...you can just download it here: Wz2100.net

If people don't like the graphics they can try Earth 2140-2160 those are also great games ;) But Warzone has much more freedom when designing your units :P

Limpet Drone got removed (as this role) - instead Cabal got a new infantry type. The Creeper are small fast spider drones. Use them to infiltrate buildings and steal vehicles!

Oh and Hijackers will also be aviable for the Forgotten on techlevel 1.

Nah from what I heard from other people who was testing it - balance was nuts, P2W heavy and so on.

I am glad that they stopped before release - as they got heavy negative feedback from testers.

I hope we get now a proper C&C Generals 2 without F2P and overprized DLC ********!
