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. I think a C&C FPS would play better if it wasn't like UT with all the rampant bunnyhopping.

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.

Even in C&C 4, Nod relied on drilling instruments to move their command centers as opposed to outfitting the mobile command centers with drilling apparatus themselves.

I mean, sure we all like to pretend C&C 4 doesn't exist, but it happened, and it kind of makes sense not to have one of your most important units go trailblazing and only use pre-installed infrastructure.

Tick Tanks, I'm not too sure about, but seemed to have a full range of rotation including the ability to tilt up and down.

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.

Maybe as a damage effect, I don't think the structure would be mass produced if every single one had a toxic spill like that. Not to mention, civilian press would have a field day both on the environmental implications and on safety of the soldiers going out on the frontlines.

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.

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.

Typically, when a technology advances, it becomes more cost efficient. If the firestorm were made to render some units or structures invulnerable without requiring some pain in the *** hardware to be installed throughout a base, I think that would be a great move.

Here's how I think it could work:
Activating the firestorm generator would render all of the structures (Possibly units as well) in a set radius around the generator invulnerable, as a trade-off, the structures within the protective zone become underpowered as the energy cost to bring the defense systems online is too high. The generator then has a cooldown of several minutes.

Another thought I had was that two mutually exclusive upgrades could be offered. One extends the maximum range and protects vehicles within the base, the second camouflages the structure somehow and kills enemy units within range when activated.

Alternatively, both abilities could be native but require the commander to choose which to activate when the cooldown completes. Meaning they share the same timer.

The murder pulse would of course be red.

The use of the words "help", "victim", and "lovely" seem opposed to each other. The sentence would really give a better narrative if you chose it to convey that process was to be considered good or bad. If you want it to sound good, replace victim with patient.
If you want it to sound bad, replace help with force or something to that effect, keep victim, and change lovely to ghastly.
Alternatively, you could change it to sound, and I think this is the right choice for anything like CABAL, devious. "The Infector's Web Grenades will 'Compel' (or) 'Encourage' the 'Subject' to consider 'joining our efforts'."

I for one think it's a move in the right direction as tank battles will no longer consist solely of two tanks revving back and forth constantly in a futile attempt to not get hit.

I can think of a couple simple yet appropriate nature names.

Arachnid or Camel Spider
The names fit Nod's theme. When equated with the desert, most spider relatives are thought to be quick and decisive as opposed to their slow and methodical temperate/domestic counterparts.

I'd have said scorpion, but I feel it'd be thematically inappropriate as a scorpion is supposed to deliver stings and then endure its prey's defense until the poison runs its course. Not ideal for a fast attack tank, more appropriate for a heavy tank. It's also fairly unoriginal due to its use in C&C 3, many C&C mods, and Halo.

Cheetahs are another easy one, they need to be fast in order to live another day. This also hearkens back to the Panzer, and other tanks named for well known big cats.

Thunderbolts are fast, strong and dissipate quickly, but that may be more fitting for something equipped with an energy weapon, or the weapon itself.

Dust storms may also be an evocative mental image, but I doubt you'd want to get any more cryptic by calling this unit a haboob, that just sounds silly.

Anywho, I believe I've given enough examples of qualitative naming procedure so that even if one of my suggestions aren't used, the method may help influence the decision process.

@dodgevipergts
Everything made since DOOM uses hitboxes or "damage positions", man.

@Woozle
Actually, I was just thinking they should run three different versions of APB side by side with some diagnostic tools designed to record and report the hit data from the tanks to see if they actually effect player performance.

One of them would be using these new hit zones, one using the old, and one using a single hitbox system. Players don't know which one they're on, people collecting the data don't know which one they're collecting so it's double blinded.

That's not entirely accurate. There were a few mashup mods that just used existing TS content and plopped them into RA2 for "nod vs soviets vs GDI vs allies" scenarios. According to the above post, the terrain is the issue, but I've seen classic TS infantry and structures used in RA2, the only problem is they look like stick figures compared to everything else. Voxels are somewhere between model and pixels. Having dealt with them before, I can say RA2's only difference with them is that it provides a higher "resolution" to work with.

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.

For a while there the sniper team had two different infantry types, the spotter had the standard G10 assault rifle with a scope on it, his presence essentially doubled the actual sniper's firing rate. If one of the infantry died and you selected the now single sniper or spotter, they would say "My partner is dead!" in a panicked voice. I believe this was later reversed and the squad was made into two snipers with the full length firing rate.

Secondly, I can really only see these working on the larger maps, like Verdun, Shuhia Taiba(Spelling?), and of course the one shown.

I guess my question is, how is this going to be more than just a cross between gunship, drop pod, and cruise missile?

Neat how Red Tiberium is actually at the lower end on this one, and I like how everything is in keeping with the light spectrum.

I recall blue growing more often in colder and mutated environments. It's trivial, though, as nobody seems to have officially taken note of such behavior.

Needs to be a little more random, back in TS and FS, the tiberium wouldn't necessarily destroy every crystal in the field, one would explode, then set off another piece, those detonations would in turn damage another crystal set that would then explode, but in the end, some would still be left over, albeit, in a sorry state. Granted, Tiberium Fields typically had more Tiberium to begin with than in C&C3, and the crystal patches weren't as massive in TS.

Wait, let me get this straight, you have the ability to spawn base prefabs in game without relighting the scene through the map editor? Downright amazing.

As far as suggestions go, I suggest a sustained beam weapon as a defence turret. Think the laser pointer, but it does damage.

Nostalgic, yet new. I see the webbed portion between the claw/wing things as optional, I don't think it will affect it strongly either way.(By webbed, I don't mean the texture, I mean the drawn out center part)

Only thing I think would make it better would be curving the thruster/engine thing around the base model more.

With the slow speed of the banshee in Tiberian Sun, I think a speed enhancement as an upgrade is a good idea.

Oh, nice, so the engineers are going to travel in teams? I wondered how that'd play out. But how will it be handled if one of the engineers is killed? Or if the squad is cut down to just one? Will they be any less effective? Like take longer to capture/repair the building, or if you add multi-engineer, only damage the building instead of capture it?

I like the idea, but on the other hand, I don't like the thought of having to beat people out of my corporation's system on a regular basis. You should have some sort of currency system, so that people can invest money into their corp, and then you can buy things with the corp's account, like stations and gates. That way, instead of someone having to pool cash and pay, the corp just has a money pool.
Maybe add a trade feature so that corporations can declare a primary export, then establish automated trade with other friendly corporations. I have a couple more ideas along those lines, but I won't bog you down right now.

If this picks up, I think I'll offer to host for it, regardless of whether you take my suggestions.

You've really captured a feel appropriate for a blend of C&C 95 and Tiberian Sun, while keeping a look that doesn't appear dated. Do you plan on making a single player campaign? I'd like to know, I feel it would be able to capture the distinct feel TS did.

I'd say stay away from the hexagonal crystals anyway. I don't even think they really fit with the Tiberian Sun theme. The places that became red zones in that were almost tropical, the large oppressive tiberium plateau formations kind of detract from that feel.

Will it actually stun the enemy? I think this would be a great defense against Skulks, who typically just tear through the first marine they see, if it has even the slightest paralysis effect. If I may, I'd suggest it drains the stamina bar for a second. You know, if you guys still have the stamina bar implemented. A stun feature like that would probably only work effectively on the smaller targets.

Isn't there a danger that both teams may end up too similar, though?

I'd assume that the maps wouldn't necessarily be limited to only 6 points, it would start to seem kinda linear in that case. If a mapper were to include more points than 6, say 8, would the Marines and Aliens be limited to only building on 3, still? I would assume so, as there's not much purpose to letting there be more if 3 fills out the tech tree.

Pretty compelling story, however, if I may, a few tips. Be very thorough with the proofreading. Typos like "cknocked" don't hurt the understandability of the piece, but really stutter the mental imagery and suspense of disbelief.
"Only now he felt really down" is a great way to word it, except for the use of the word down. Down really underplays the sense of doom a Freman warrior would feel at the mortal damaging of a stillsuit, for them, it's almost shameful. It's more of a slang/vernacular word. Try some other words in its stead like "defeated" or make it a noun "the defeat". That's just an example, but other than those two things, this is truly superb writing, I doubt I've seen anything like it with any other mod. I'd go so far as to say this writing is better than the stories that come along with most games these days, even.

People DO improve in abilities over time, just you don't have a status bar that shows it. Seeing as games tend to be major let downs when they have no status bar, I don't think they'll do it without one. But it can still be great or better if they pull it off.
