This is likely not a strike against modders because we'd see it across the board. It doesn't seem well known, but there should be an email in your inbox linked to your account. Bioware's community service got hacked, so they sent out an account reset order. The vague wording sounds like it could be about that to me. Just check the email address you have linked to your EA login and filter your inbox for things like Bioware and EA.

The function of the arms is why I don't like them. Even in Macross, the artillery mechs didn't have hands. Small arms type weapons would be better suited on a turret, relying on hands would actually dampen their combat effectiveness. The first version of the Avatar had a good reason for having hands, and they weren't the gundam kind, because they serve a function. There's a reason construction cranes aren't shaped like human hands, that design is less efficient for anything of that scale. This isn't going to be going around engaging in infantry combat with 50 foot tall people, so there's no real edge to giving this support mech humanoid hands.

Mind you, getting angry at this post is the wrong response. But, what I got from this: Intro text!... And some more intro text! Run up to guys and shoot them! Traverse dimly lit hallways! Explode things! Traverse more hallways! Shoot guys, detect boxes, and crouch behind them! Shoot distracted AI! Traverse more hallways, but watch out for loose wires! Break computers by using them!

Suffice to say, this looks like a pretty straight forward shooter. A couple suggestions: Make the crouching process faster, it didn't look very fluid, and seeing as that's the closest thing to a cover dynamic you have, it's gonna be a necessity. That is, unless the player's just gonna be able to tank all the bullets. The scenery could also use some variety I noticed one setting with the following regions: narrow Hallway A, wider Hallway B, and Office/lobby room with a computer terminal. Seriously, I couldn't tell if that was the same shot of a hallway doing different things at the end or if those were three different hallways. Weapon variety didn't seem that high either. There was what seemed like an SMG with a grenade launcher and a shotgun. Ultimately that leaves nothing to identify this as its own thing, not very good for a 'promo' vid if you could be looking at anything with those elements.

Something that comes to mind for Nod in the snow is the old snowmobile chase scene trope with the paramilitary guys in full winter gear with grease guns.
Best example I could find on short notice is from a "newer" Bond flick. (Aren't they all?)
Youtu.be
Alternatively, there's an episode of Archer featuring such a scene.
But I digress, something's gotta give. The problem is that dark colors tend to bleed together in a light environment, especially in poor lighting. It's color composition 101, literally, I took a class for this.

More important than color for distinguishing units, however, is the ability to tell the "silhouette" apart. As long as it looks characteristically distinct in profile, you're good.

Nod's snowmobile looks good, but I might recommend brightening the grey portions a bit. IMO, the contrast makes it look very dark compared to the white terrain it's going to be traveling over.
For other changes, consider creating a half-track version of the Nod Buggy/other wheeled vehicles? Bringing the grey more in line with Nod's old style from C&C Gold might be beneficial overall.
Were these models and textures a winter camo would be an easy change to the textures, but I understand voxels are quite different.

There's some value in staying off of steam, however. Something I've seen as a recurring problem with steam is that it splinters the community. A large sum of people who buy the game through steam may never even know that there is a place to go to talk about minecraft. Furthermore, they have a certain disconnect on relevant points of interest.

I'm like that with terraria, I don't know a damn thing going on in the community because I never had a vested interest when I bought it on steam, now everything I know about it is old news.

Suddenly the Steam forums become those peoples' only outlet and you get other users who've been to the curse network forum lording it over steam users and calling them idiots for not going there for answers to their questions first.

The whole thing becomes a mess, but it's sort of a non-issue seeing as so many games do this already and the resulting communities, although somewhat insular, adapt.

Well, whatever, I just thought a little more diversity would help achieve your guys' tag line up there.

The larger portion of the game, at least if you plan on having species able to explore space, is going to essentially be based on science fiction, to my knowledge we haven't managed to even conceive of efficient space travel due to resource limitations.

Scientific accuracy is great in the real world, where using it properly yields informative results every time, but in developing videogames you wanna set a threshold for suspense of disbelief as well. If Frank Herbert was worried about insulting his readers' intelligence, he would have stopped writing Dune when he got to the part about a cinnamon-like drug that makes its users prescient and near immortal, especially if he had already thought up the part about how it's made.

I'm not trying to defend aquatic races specifically, I'm making sure you really want to go against your apparent design goal. I could always type up a slippery slope speech about the dangers of conceding to strict logic alone in creative works, but those are only good for a quick chortle.

Besides, I'm having fun bouncing these ideas back and forth. Who said they would be average human sized? I'm sure we're only this big because it has benefited us through our history as a species.

Jeffman12 May 24 2012, 3:03pm replied:

You only really need enough water to fill the "gill capacity" and keep the creature in question hydrated.

The primary function of the water in the breathing process of any aquatic organism is to "cut" the air so as not to drive the organism's respiratory system into shock. This means, they just need enough water to absorb the proper amount of air before introducing it to their system. Gills are optimized to filter breathable air from water, the water is then discarded.

Water isn't bonded to carbon as oxygen is when we expel it from our bodies, so it's still viable after having passed a creature's respiration cycle, it just needs to be filtered and replenished. Both of these tasks are easily accomplished, filtration occurs naturally with little more than common dirt and aerating the water is accomplished whenever bubbles are present. There's no need to carry a fresh supply of compressed water everywhere they go, if anything they'd be carrying around an air supply to keep their water breathable.

The aforementioned plastic can of course then be used to create a "fishbowl helmet" as well as other components necessary for a pressure suit.

Well, Nod already has 'houses' And more than just Black Hand and Marked of Kane. Each region of the globe is under the command of a member of the inner circle, each in charge of their own sub-faction within Nod. All of their followers and underlings swear allegiance to Kane first and their leader second. The reason why the Brotherhood fractures so easily is that Kane sort of becomes more of a concept than a person, and those people then decide that they obey their perception of what Kane stands for rather than Kane himself. Nod's tradition of ascension by assassination is only a motivational factor to keep commanders loyal, and tends to hurt the brotherhood when Kane goes off taking his occasional dirt naps courtesy of GDI's R&R(Rockets and Railguns) department.

I think you're better off introducing clans separately and keeping Nod and GDI true to Nod and GDI. Frankly, I think battletech wouldn't work so well with the C&C instant base dynamic(Just add credits!) They seem better suited to squad building style gameplay, like designating a landing zone, ordering mercs, and protecting your commander unit. Afterall, nobody bats an eye at the fact that Avatars can be mass produced and maintained as easily as standing next to a WF, where part of what makes battletech battletech is that you need to manage your mechs, pay your lance mates their dues, and repairs come out of your pocket.

Clans team up now and then, right? I'd say just give them one big faction and IS their own. Then you could have their structures come from orbital drop or something, and the units can be dropped off at a landing pad by a dropship, or they can just come out of one big ship that lands and acts like a war factory.

My final point to place on the chopping block, If Nod becomes the clans, why would they stop worshiping Tiberium based technology in favor of lasers and god emperors?

I'd still love it if a renegade mod managed to get rid of the hopping around style gameplay in favor of something more tactical, but that'd need some serious map editing.

Looks fine to me. Decreasing some of the blood wouldn't hurt, but I don't think it would be any worse just leaving it either. I think all it needs is the right sounds and you'd probably achieve appropriate terror levels with either amount of blood spatter.

Tin hats? Constructive criticism has nothing to do with aliens or paranoia. I think I speak for almost everyone here when I say the point is this: Instead of taking this item design directly from the original creator's sample, who you made amply sure to mention is not yourself, you could have actually designed a more efficient version of it yourself and thus the only credit due to this other player would be for showing you the basic idea of it. That's part of the spirit of Minecraft, innovation and improvement, if you see something you think is neat, you take it, perfect it to suit your needs, and voila, you have something unique.

My experience supports this, One GDI squad vs one Nod squad, both with full health, always ends in GDI making short work of Nod, but two Nod vs one GDI tends to ensure the survival of at least some of the members of both Nod militant squads.

Scrin infantry are high-micro. You're supposed to make ample use of the teleportation ability the commando has for them to be effective. Your addition of a transport isn't made useless by this, though, it opens up doors to people who would otherwise never make use of such an ability by providing a suitable alternative.

Very nice, but Goober has a point, the contrast draws all the attention to the launchers and not the tank. While I'm not worried about this interfering with my playing, I can only assume it'll be gnawing at the back of my mind every time I see one. Not much change is necessary, just darkening it a shade or two should be enough. Besides, a stealth tank shouldn't be wholey reliant on cloaking tech to stay unseen, if it's instantly noticeable the second it's visible, that doesn't help the tank much. But it's all just a matter of suspense of disbelief.

Great models. If you didn't already plan to, I'd break up the flatness of the surfaces with some techno clutter; pipes, vents, general doodads, that sort of thing. Of course I've got no idea if your texture will fill that role, so in which case, disregard this.

Increased range, I assume it doesn't have a further reach than the laser turret, that'd be a problem. I don't like the mortar that much as I rarely encounter infantry past the very start of the game. As far as I'm concerned it will not be missed.
If it gets imbalanced, which I doubt, due to the wolverines being used in tandem, you might want to add a weak machine gun like the harvester's.

Everything but the powerplant needs a size upgrade. Judging by the scale, the silo in the front of the refinery is about as tall as a player, I think it should be 1.5 to 2 times the player's height if that's a helpful size comparison. I'm judging this by the size of the door on the old refinery.
