Just here to help mods by providing feedback, to ask help on the forums when I encounter issues and to enjoy the modding community.
Maybe I'll actually start modding some day too.
I got this reply just about a year late, but even so, I followed your advice and gave it a try. The alpha demo ran much better, and I was actually able to play it, albeit still with some issues. My PC is simply archaic though, so it's impressive enough that it's playable at all. A job well done by the WftO team!
I think you did an excellent job! The trailer's presentation is absolutely top notch thanks to your voice acting.
Not gonna lie, you guys have made HUGE improvements over time. It must've been a long and difficult road, but things have never looked better.I wonder how the gameplay will evolve though, as it is inherently clunky and heavy, though that last part is not a bad thing.
I see an "I" symbol at the bottom of every icon. I wonder, does this mean that to get the info you have to actually press the I button while hovering over the icon or the unit? If so, that would be the best of both worlds, allowing for detailed information to be given without it taking up the whole screen like this normally.
Really good, though aren't you using assets from the Witch Hunters mod in this image? I thought the developers of that mod vanished without giving anyone permission to use their mod for their own development?
Awesome, that'll be great!
"One way trip!"
The wait is almost over. Now we rise from the shadows and the unseen depths to spread the word...Kane lives!
This is a topic of hot debate in a lot of RTS forums. I am almost always in favour of more units, but only conditionally.
Those conditions being:
-New units must fill some niche for their faction that was not filled previously. This niche may be as simple as "mobile heavy firepower" for instance, or as specific as "mobile heavy firepower that stands up to unit X in the mid-game that would otherwise counter all mobile heavy firepower type units at this point in the game."
In either case, the unit brings novel strategic use with it, but however...
-New units may not be *too* similar to existing units. Some people may disagree with me here and I encourage them to tell me why they do, but in my personal experience a unit is most fun when it is special and not quite like anything else seen in the game. Giving a unit a unique method of attack like tesla troopers, prism tanks, chrono troopers, desolators etc. helps a lot. Consider unique methods of defence too, like assault tanks with small-scale force fields that when activated drain the power bar.
-New units shouldn't upset the game balance. This one speaks for itself and you guys have proven yourself more than competent at handling this aspect considering how difficult it is.
I realize that you are limited to an extent by the capabilities of the engine, but with Ares your options have broadened and there is a lot of room for creativity. To say "no" to more units would be to stifle that creativity. Perhaps if you have concerns about there being too many units, you can make new units be campaign-exclusive?
Either way, take your time on the decision and take your time with the mod, and keep delivering quality content like you do!
Thank you for this information! I will avoid using Imperial Guard until the next patch.
I am running into consistent fatal AI errors. One per match, in fact. The circumstances under which this bug was produced are as following:
-Installed the mod onto a clean copy of the Steam version of the game when it was released. Played it for a few hours against the AI.
-Applied the patch that shortly after came out.
-Made a custom IG regiment in the army painter.
-Played as Chaos Undivided against the IG regiment, producing a squad of Khorne Berzerkers before choosing the Zeallous trait.
After a short amount of playtime, a fatal AI error occurs. Playing another map and taking these same steps has caused the error to occur again, and then later again.
Later, playing as the Eldar against the IG to see if the problem was the race I was playing, I encountered the same error after some time.
In all of these cases I was playing on a 1v1 map against Imperial Guard, and they seemed to mostly use infantry throughout the game, and occasionally sentinels and chimeras.
If relevant, I can post my computer's specs too. Performance-wise the mod has run excellently so far however.
Does anyone know where to get a legal copy of this that doesn't cost an ungodly amount of money? I've seen this on Amazon for FIFTY dollars, but of course there isn't a single store around anymore where they'll sell it and the only alternative I can find is .iso torrents.
Would the Frogfoot possibly be repurposed into a general-specific GP to limit it's use, in so doing creating a balance? Or would that be too much like the A-10 Strike?
How do you convert 2-dimensional Red Alert 2 models to 3-dimensional Generals models? Do you just make new models using the 2-D art as reference material? Because if you do, that's impressive, it looks just like the RA2 model.
I recognise the exact model from Warcraft 3 to be precise.
Freind or foe? This looks like something interesting for NOD to find an ally in. One that they're not sure they can trust, and a sinister one, but thematically it works well.
HELL yeah. Time for another crusade, GLA scum. And this time we brought some new toys...
Some Ultimate Apocalypse mod fans seem to be accusing the ZMS mod of stealing assets and content from other mods. A lot of the models in this mod DO seem to have featured in other mods before, but as far as I'm aware they aren't stolen, simply used with permission.
You'll have to wait for a definitive answer from ZMS though, I don't know the fine points of it.
Looks absolutely awesome. One of the best models I've seen in the mod so far. My only concern is that animating it will probably be a pain, as with all walker vehicles.
Tracking, looks very interesting.
Good to see that NoD and GDI still buy their harvesters from the same manufacturer, like in the olden golden days of Tiberian Sun. XD
Drawing from Dark Heresy, eh? Excellent idea! Approved thousandfold.
It's funny because nobody would be able to tell that this is the SAGE engine, of all things.
That grate is quite possibly the best thing about it.
Superweapon General's defences have nothing on this. Though I somehow feel like she'd be something of a hard counter to the Continental Defence Subdivision, thanks to the mass use of superweapons and powerful bombers.
Good thing this is a complete conversion. :P
VERY good model, but needs a bit of polish to blend it all together I think. Still, definitely an extremely worthy addition to the warriors of Khorne!
There were people having technical difficulties with MEC? Hard to imagine, in my experience it's the most polished C&C mod out there.
Love it! GDI are going to be terrified of the sight.
That looks like some mean high-tech artillery. What does it fire like?
Might be interesting. It all depends on how the platforming mechanics and the shooter mechanics will interact.
So what does this tank do, besides looking cool?
10/10, gets you high on adrenaline, so much action! :P
In all seriousness though, it's good to see that the resource collection for the WEA is up and running. Resource collection is an important part of any C&C game and mod, after all. (Unless it's Tiberium Twilight, but let's not talk about that title...)
That's just amazing. Will ion storms ever occur?
Infiltrating a radar sounds like it would be SUPER useful. Better build walls around my radar from now on.
I don't even have Fallout NV for PC. I just clicked the "track mod" button one day because I was curious whether or not this project would even hit an open beta stage.
I am beyond astounished that it has. Going to link this page to all of my friends who do have Fallout NV for PC.
This looks so high-res it might as well be for Renegade 2 or something. Awesome!
This will put some hurt on the Allies' units. As in, ALL of their units, besides air units. Unless a tesla plane is in the works, which would be insanity. I'm a fan of insanity though.
It kind of depends on what's provided. I once won a match by just spamming dilophosaurus nests and smoke towers. I was all over the map but nobody could see me, and I had a free respawning guard force. The sheer hilarity value was amazing, as enemy forces faced all sorts of trouble wading through tides of dilophosaurus and eventually getting bogged down and killed with zero effort on my part. I could just build a small elite force and a few ninjas a poke at the enemy base with guerillia strikes now and then until buildings started to crumble and no expansions were safe to use because of dilophosaurus infestations reinforced by small, invisible patrols.
Funny example of a special strategy that requires non-standard units. It also actually worked, for some weird reason. I couldn't stop laughing.
Oh my...look at this delightful little monstrosity. We shall coax a few of these from the Warp, definitely. Let them wreak their havoc upon the material realm.
He does. Malice is known for this. ;P
Wait what...Sons of Malice? Could it be that the fifth Chaos God is making an appearance?
I don't care either way, the Amazon Temple never even produced any units for me. It just healed stuff and had no training/building menu. Might've been a bug.
On the subject of a single hero providing multiple extra units and an extra structure though, I actually kind of like that. It would mean that a player's choice of heroes would very significantly alter his tech and playstyle. But it would only work if every hero would do that, and I can't see that being pulled off. The amount of extra content and balancing of that content that would be required would be insane.
Something tells me the Soviet AI for this level is a bit overpowered.
Does that even EXIST in 40K lore? Well if it doesn't, it should.
Is there any other way to communicate? Skype? Email? DeviantART? I have bad experience with Xfire, it runs really badly on this computer for some reason.
....what.....what IS that? It looks amazing...
Will it be on the same scale in-game as shown in the concept art? That would be incredible.
Awesome! I'll try this out when I get someone else to install this mod...
Look like it, judging by the typical melta nozzles being present.
I'm still not entirely sure what this mod is getting at...but I do know it LOOKS AWESOME.
I LOVE these....Always been a heavy fan and user of the Soviet tesla arsenal!
My comp got it's secondary CPU removed. It somehow got frakked. Result: no Paraworld for me until I get a new computer. Once I DO have that new computer though, I'll be very interested in finding out more about this CEP thing. Will it contain more than just SEASmod? The new name makes it sound like it'll contain all of the best things the community have made for Paraworld.
Great to see the mod still alive and kicking! I still have Paraworld installed just because of it. :D
Can't wait until the next release.
It looks appropriate to me. The Alliance has very sleek, modern-looking designs as opposed to the clunky experimental look of all the Soviet advanced units.
Alliance units are in fact very high-tech, but it's more subtle. Smaller, more efficient, less blatant. Also less awesome, if you ask me, but they do seem to match the Soviets in terms of technology. It's just the the Soviets are not nearly as conservative in their designs.
Very good mod, love the steampunk-ish SEAS.
Alright! Rock on guys!
....and now I am torn. I want to vote for CNC Fallout, but I also want to vote for communism....
The models need a little more detail, but I'm loving them so far! The designs are great, and the Tesla Coil looks magnificent.
Cool! When the texturing for the rocket pods is finished it'll look awesome! Are you guys going to add some sort of glow effect to the laser cannons?
I love how you used a civil war as an excuse for the fact that the UAN will be the only playable faction. It's brilliant! I'm eager to see just how well exactly it will work out. ^^
I'm not so sure about the voice acting on Technician Vladov, or that one some of the units. But I must say, the Behemoth sounds and looks awesome!
No offense, but they are developing units that will actually look a lot better than Soulstorms. They are completely overhauling the old Dark Eldar concept used by Soulstorm, to replace it with a more accurate and fun one.
For instance, if you're a tabletop player this will be great new for you. Or if you just actually like Warhammer 40K.
Sweet. Can't wait!
Still waiting patiently.
It looks cool, but what the heck is it? I don't even understand what this mod adds exactly. What factions are involved and what are they from?
Crawlers, the only good thing about C&C 4. I just hope they won't entirely replace the buildings as much as become a construction yard for a faction's second tech tree, unlockable only through making a crawler. That'd be great.
All I can do is draw decently. It's unlikely you'll need any more of that skill at all, so I'm sorry, can't offer anything.
