For a start, I think all commodities would be charged at a premium, that being said, ammunition could get smugglers a lot of money or at least be worth their weight in artifacts.

It certainly wouldn't make sense for there to be an ammo shortage in a relative warzone that has a high value to black markets around the world, no. But I don't think it'd be too cheap. Afterall, each bullet could mean one less customer in a semi-closed ecosystem like the zone.

I think you've got the right idea.

I'd guess these fall under a new tier.

I think this game really needs a foundation structure or terrain sculpting tools.

Maybe adjustable scaled slabs in disk or square shape with convenient locations for stairs to be attached around the edges and are always oriented "up right". I keep running into these problems of finding a moderately decent location to build, but the ground is never as level as I need it to be.

So, I'll just say this. When I first played Tiberian Sun, my first exposure to C&C, I had a marginal idea of what I was doing. I felt the simple UI left a lot to be explained, and I needed to reference the manual A LOT.
The second GDI mission introduced the MCV and I missed the bit about setting up a base when they delivered an MCV for me to deploy. It wasn't until I quit the mission, started a new game the next day, and read the manual when I was told to deploy it that I understood the feature.

That being said, the deploy icon is available from a hot bar, and mousing over it gives you a tooltip assuming you haven't turned that off, I say go for it. The icon for the drone platform you show here looks to describe the intended action fully.

As for the purifier, it's a prototype of the avatar, so I think you could explain it being slower pretty easily, this also helps infantry keep up with it. The black hand on the other hand is basically made of rage and flamethrowers which I think would make it hard to explain why the flames might be weaker.

It seems like more work adding features the RA2 engine already has. Most of the pre-existing Tiberian Sun content such as SHPs, Voxels, and other sprites work in RA2's engine, it's just that the default RA2 content looks cartoony, so really graphical settings aren't an issue. Furthermore, RA2 has native support for 1920x1080 and if I recall, doesn't require you to switch to 16 bit mode to run in a window.

I'm guessing you're right on all counts. I thought the 'altitude map' might be some sort of dynamic graph for a second. I hope the player is required to survey that entire area before just knowing this, though.

And as long as the method for finding water ingame isn't dousing, or some other kind of crystal gripping nonsense, this is shaping up to become one of my favorites.

I'd love to see the C&C community band together and get their own RTS/FPS hybrid engine going, it could use classic C&Cs as a template for a lot of features like terrain , environments, and construction, and well, Renegade didn't really break any new ground, let's be honest.

Other games have been a lot further along than the concept materials phase and been cancelled for this reason.

Considering this would be a free fan-made mod, I don't think the rights holders could turn it down unless they used content developed by the rights holders. I suspect they just decided to take this in their own direction with an IP loosely based on Dune rather than have a game loosely based on its existing IP.

Their reproductive method is hermaphroditic is it implies bearing both male and female genitalia, but earth worms which have only one gender and are hermaphroditic, for example, are all homosexual. Contrary to popular belief, hermaphroditic reproduction in most creatures requires two to mate, plants on the other hand can reproduce asexually.

Sexual reproduction refers to instances where two individuals of a species are involved or required for fertilization, asexual reproduction is when a single plant/animal/microorganism may fertilize itself.

IMO, having genders in games with a chat feature encourages cybering, which should never happen on pub servers. Besides, player skins let people get by just fine.

What I'm saying is feel free to use some of your own creativity in how you set up wildlife. I'm sure some people will want to have terrestrial limitations applied at every turn, but others might be hoping for some alien environments.

I'd imagine a race would need to be "technologically amphibious" before proceeding to space, anyhow. Fluid is considerably heavier than gas, and that species would be susceptible to 'the bends' in lower pressure environments.

For surface expansion, I'd imagine it would be achievable at its base stage early on. They could build a tube under-water, perhaps out of masoned and sealed limestone or what have you, and then push it up and out over the shoreline. This race would want to use pumps and maybe water mills to keep artificially constructed water ways aerated enough to breathe.

They could also have access to industrial plastics as soon as refining oil is a viable option. So an aquatic race isn't necessarily at a disadvantage in tech, it's just a different approach. I'll touch on relevance in a later post.

I think this could use, at the very least a new texture, the matte grey is sort of off-putting. Only other critiques are that it looks like it might be a little long for being called a carbine, but that's probably due to the stock's length, and that looks like a low capacity mag for something that's essentially a smaller version of an assault rifle. The barrel's certainly short enough for the carbine classification, the sight looks pretty good.

Small tends to mean map size because that directly contributes to the length of the map. Gamemode has some effect, but you'll find smaller defense maps tend to be shorter as well. Alpha_Man seems to know what he means and that right there is an indication of a general problem.
Truth is, you could get a lot worse reviews, we're talking about a guy who seems to have actually downloaded the f'ing map and post his comments on it after testing it. He has a valid point; If there isn't anything to it, no adventure, no reason to care about why you're there, what is the point of downloading it? And what's the most amazing part about that single sentence critique? It was done without any personal attacks on the author or swearing at all. Sorry, but it falls in the ranks of constructive criticism, an opinion is an opinion. Criticism is only worthless when it contains no content at all describing that user's problem with the map. Don't be so dramatic about something like this, your whiteknighting is needed elsewhere, Phipe.

Consider this, Alpha_Man:
If you like this particular map so much, but it's too small for a satisfying mission, consider making it a centerpiece in a larger map. At that point, the map becomes your own with featured work by the creator of that section. Having something to base your work on will tend to keep the aesthetic from shifting more than you'd like and give you a handy reference for the Hammer Architecture.

Jeffman12 Dec 13 2010, 2:53pm replied:

Because capturing the structure with an engineer is actually harder when you take into account that the player has more forewarning to sell the superweapon, the engineer isn't very stealthy, and base defences won't fire on the super weapon the second it's hijacked like they would if another player just took complete control of it.

Jeffman12 Dec 12 2010, 12:35pm replied:

This is what I took from what you just said;
The chameleon will be able to temporarily take control of another player's super weapons. I'd suggest a 20 second timer so the attacking player has to fire the weapon within those 20 seconds to actually use the weapon, and the weapon has to reset its charge period whether it was fired or not after those 20 seconds. This may sound unbalanced, but it's actually good for the victim because it means the person using the spy can't just spam spies to keep the weapon under their control for the duration of the charge period.

EA actually supports third party game creation, so long as you don't sell it. Even then, if it was good enough, they'd probably be willing to allow it if they got some of the profit.

When the Reborn Team asked EA if it was okay to use the W3D engine and release Reborn for free, they replied with "Go for it, we love free advertising."

Most of the law suits EA is involved in are from employees suing them for unpaid overtime. A symptom of working at a company with such stringent release dates that they're willing to compromise quality just to ensure they're met.

Seeing as this is a mod and game development resource site, instead of complaining about how EA ruined your childhood, why don't you all take steps towards rebuilding the games the way you see fit, either through modding or starting from scratch. Of course you won't be able to sell it if it's based off of C&C, but it's great portfolio work and there's other ways you can make money should you need any to support the project.

Even if you were to just come up with concepts, it really is more conducive than complaining about something you won't change any time soon.

And remember, all developers(Whether they want the money or the art aspect) are receptive of CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. So putting down what you'd want in a new game would get better results than idle threats to EA, who I can assure you, won't listen to them.

I found the combat music in C&C 4 to be fitting(To the Death, The Harder They Fall), more specifically the sort of industrial/electronic percussion aspects alongside violin. While the vocals are decent, they complete the songs more in a 'good enough' way at times, I'd avoid anything sounding like the breakdown in To The Death(2:31-3:16).

I suppose I should elaborate. A theory states that one method by which cells became complex and attained new organelles was by consuming incompatible bacteria, or being invaded by them. Over time a symbiotic relationship emerged which later became integral. It just seems more in-depth than cells picking and choosing random DNA they 'collect'.

All the Ordos infantry looked the same, so the only real difference was their voice, which bore a distinctly younger or inexperienced quality.

An actual description is ALWAYS a decent touch, I remember back in my Quake 2 days browsing through piles of models at the ol' Polycount. I'd be looking for models I liked, found Daleks, some superheros, Cyborgs, etc. I didn't know a thing about Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, but I found some related player models. Had I not read the descriptions, I would never have been able to remember where to get them when I later became a JTHM fan.
