Ah good movie, I've always liked these criminal-themed movies(The God Father, Pulpfiction, Scarface etc.), really reminds me how they made the GTA games, they almost seems to be based off or inspired by some of these movies, anyways good stuff!

Please don't take this the wrong way.
Wouldn't it be better to focus on getting the next release ready as soon as possible rather than uploading a continues stream of pictures? I'm sure lots of people here would rather see a second release soon than all these images?

I think your mod is awesome and I played some of your first release, was really fun, but I'd rather wait, with maybe an occasional update with a few images than 1 or 2 every day.

Sincerely, looking forward to your next release.

Seeing as I'm such a good spirit I'll answer your call!

If you want to learn how to simply read or translate Tau symbols into the common Alphabet, you should look up the 'Tau to Alphabet letters' chart found in the codex but can as easily be accessed via the internet.
If you want to learn more about the Tau Language aka Tau words there's quite an extensive piece made unofficially, posted on Deviant-Art that is based on the lore from Codices and Novels/Books from Black Library.

You can also download a Tau 'Font' for Microsoft Word which will let you type in Tau with your keyboard. (Should be said other people on the internet won't be able to read it without having the same 'font file' on their computer.)

Here is varies links you may be able to use in your study:

Unofficial Tau Dictionary(incomplete, most extensive piece of Tau language info available) based on the lore: Commanderfarsight.deviantart.com

Tau Language on Lexicanum(Note the Tau uses the same symbol for different of our letters): Wh40k.lexicanum.com

Tau Font for Microsoft Word(Will help you learn recognize the different Tau letters easily): Advancedtautactica.com (Click the Mediafire link on the site to download.)

This is an older art piece, I think this is the 3rd time I see it on this image list.

But as always, it's good to have people see awesome artwork like this for the first time.

Is the only Army(Doctrine) that can get a Tiger the 5th Army? (The Defensive one) I tried getting the tank support ability to see your Tiger model but so far I've only gotten the King Tiger 3 times in a row now from that call-in. (The one that says: ... They'll either send a Tiger I or King Tiger.)

I can't help but notice the house colour ring on the Subterranean APC looks to be a bit off, shouldn't it be circling the treads of the vehicle rather than in the center of the length of the vehicle?

Also, where does the vehicle turn? It should turn on the center of it's treads rather than the center of it's whole length, which would look strange and unrealistic if it did.

The Drill part is just an extension of the model where as the main back part - the troop housing is the main vehicle with the treads, and should have a turning axis centered around this part of the vehicle, again the treads.

Question here - Will allied units be able to fire through the Firestorm shield? Like they could in Tiberian Sun or will it repel every projectile passing through it, enemy and ally alike?

Realistically it would of course disperse all fire going through it, but for the sake of game-play how would you make it work?

The Subterranean vehicles would dig underground when the distance for it's move order was great enough, same for the GDI Jumpjet trooper, if you ordered him to move a short distance he'd run, a longer distance and he'd set to the sky.

Yes you're right, but I'm sure they'll get to that, they've been trying to get all the main assets done for a while now so I'll expect before the release they fix up on these issues.

They are only doing GDI and Nod for the initial release anything after that is uncertain still.
