For the record, when I said "I took a class for this." I meant that to say something along the lines of "Christ, people can actually pay money to be taught about colors at a college level." Not as an argument from authority.

Taking another look at it, I think the problem, at least that I have, is with the shadow, it makes the unit seem more amorphous than it is because it seems to blend together with it.

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.

The steam workshop is just a microcosm of the exact same issue.

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. Furthermore, how could we have gone this long without mentioning blowholes? In thinking about concessions for gills, I forgot there were mammalian sea creatures.

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?

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.

Not much change is necessary, just darkening it a shade or two should be enough.

Either suspended below the cannons, or attached to the base.

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.

They're also pointless if not an access point for any enterprising bandit looking for a ladder.

And this is just a minor nag, almost infinitesimally so, but unless you plan to have multiple possible models for the gate, using visibly distinct components calls into question the exact rarity of the materials used. I'm of course looking at the struts by which the gate is to be suspended. Mainly because they're bent and look like they were simply salvaged, not constructed with their new role in mind. And let's face it, even a low tech settlement would be able to do some simple degree of smithing.

I can actually think of a couple designs that use the exact same shape as this gate, but I think they'd only be fitting if you got to choose how the gates function, and they got refitted accordingly.

Well that's a weird thing to neg.

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'.

I think a mechanic where one type of NPC bacteria with a particular trait made a habit of invading player made cells, and then the cells had to adapt to not be impacted negatively and incorporate the benefits of the new organelle would be interesting.

I don't think C&C 4 would have been considered so terrible if they had just called it what it was: A C&C themed MOBA designed by fisher price.
Also would have helped if it wasn't made according to a survey sent out to people who just bought Kane's Wrath.

So, Cruentus and Aboreus were present in the TS game files(As in the code, not actual .shps), but never saw the light of day, and this led to a lot of fan speculation on the topic, even whether it would be red or yellow, possibly even orange. As I recall, cruentus itself would have been unharvestable due to a lack of efficient industrial processing.

Those can also produce spiders and skeletons, but only one monster type per block. According to a friend, you can mine them and when you place it, it will become a pig spawner.

Very nice, I like the one on the left because the one on the right is a little too yellow.

It's original, I can't think of anything bad about it to point out.

Or I could just type what all of the people that dislike this are thinking in an unflattering fashion. Something along the lines of:
"LERN 2 FOTOSHOP U DONT UZ ENUF LENZ FLAYR U NED XTRA LINZ & CHEVRONZ LYK TS LOGGO HAD"

I think it's just fine, and fits with the aesthetic of the mod quite nicely.

Will any attempt be made to recover some of the functionality initially intended for the campaign when Renegade was first made public knowledge?
For example some ability to call in airstrikes, or at least tertiary objectives that will allow similar events to take place? Example: Take out the SAM and paint a laser target.

To be honest, I expected nothing more from you guys than a multiplayer remake, so just this is a pleasant, if not incredible surprise.

Great job, now I can stand to use ground vehicles other than motor cycles, but I still feel like they are still a little awkward to drive.

The only complaint I have: The AA guns look like they wouldn't be too stable. If you want to keep the barrels the same length, but agree with my thoughts, one compromise I can think of right away would be to move the barrels into the turret so that they are coming out the back, maybe with ammo belts extending to them. Or at least put something on the back so it looks like it has adequate counter-balance.

I love the realistic scaling of the vehicles.

Well, if it's not gonna have the scale of the wolverine, will it have the maneuverability? That's really the important aspect.

With those massive airfoils, it feels like they should be spread out from the main body a little more. In fact, everything but the fuselage looks like it should have some space put between it, seems too compact for a bomber. But, altogether, not a bad model.

Well, the HUD can be any color, really, it just needs some good ol' fashioned transparency. The actual visor looks pretty BA, though.

I like the new HUD, but it just feels so empty without anything at the top. Maybe stylize the score tracker? Visible weapon tabs across the top? I dunno, I just feel like it needs something up there.

Individually, they're just cool futuristic versions of normal everyday things(Excluding robotic arms). But altogether they give a nice description of what the mise en scene will be like.

The darker texture really does make it look better. I was a little put off to it before by the large glowing yellow toes, but this is nice.

The toes seem a litle blocky, I'd say extrude the faces and then bevel them. Oh, and slant them all downward towards the outer edge.

Looking at Alyx, I see that the shading is kinda texture based. And the wall to the right seems to be giving off more light than the openness on the other side.

The one thing that really bugs me after a while is that the NPC shading doesn't match the lift's shading. Alyx's arm on the lift's wall is much brighter than the dark background.

I was looking forward to the next build, but the former Westwood staff have really gotten stuck up since the full merger with EA. I don't even feel the same about Petroglyph, it seems the rigid community support attitude that was there in the beginning is gone now.

Maybe they'll come around in time, but nobody should expect you to work with broken tools.
