Little note because why the heck not: Most shown changes are aesthetic.
That probably means that something in the mechanics is fucky enough to not have reached a new milestone since sometime in January/Late December.
So, I'm guessing it's something of a "While you're bored out of your skull waiting for our code to magically start working, have something our artists made to pass the time," kind of situation.

Ah, good point with the aesthetic.
The way I'd have set it up if I really went to do something like it (Yeah right.) would probably be some sort of tiered system.
Say;
-Concealment (outwards identical, damaged state could show it to be a façade),
-Commandeered (same as original, but at least partially repainted),
-Constructed (Base design, Noddified blueprints/captured assembly line)

But yeah, at this point, I'm drawing it out so much, it's gone from "Potentially less work," to "Twice as much and a mess of assets."

Hey, idea about Nod bases: They probably still need all the standard military infrastructure, while maintaining a low-key status and stealth tech might be a bit over the top or ineffective in some cases*, so why not use (modified) civilian structures or buildings designed to look like them?
*I'm not sure if they can actually cloak a runway, for example, and once your sensor arrays pick something up...

So, Prefab Shelter with (a few subtle dabs of red paint and) some extra antennas sticking out the top on a hill overlooking a vital logistic vein?
Maxi-Shack Deluxe with an extra bit with rather large windows built on top, as some rather large antennas, all placed rather close to a particularly well-preserved, straight and flat stretch of an abandoned highway.

Might still need some work to actually make that work, so I'm not sure how useful it is, but yeh.

Thanks for noting. I commonly only do a quick glance at first. I guess adding in the foundation(?) makes them look smaller.

Though, I do wonder what's in that tank-like structure in most versions. If it's just a fuel/oil tank, it might actually make sense to keep it outside the structure.
But if it's a power source...though, that would make little sense unless at least this faction dispenses with power plants.

Then again, now that I've managed to get the full size version loaded, the armoured ventilation systems and a (presumably) administrative/semi-residential(techies need beds too, right?) structure built around them would make life less fun for any would-be visitors, right?

Summary; not as bad as I though, external fuel tank is a nice touch, as are the armoured windows at B2.

At this point, I think it mostly depends whether the devs want to channel Company of Heroes' Wehrmacht, or mix it with Generals' USA for this. Or they could start with one, and upgrade it to the second, I guess.

Also, why can't I keep my **** short?

How about just weird for the sake of weird, which really sounds like something you'd stick to the Scrin, emphasise a more robust, scrappy approach?
Something like GLA engineering, only with access to the processing/manufacturing capacity of (mainly) TD-era Con yards, and with a much more limited manpower pool, so no blowing themselves up.
So, in the end, you'd get late 90s early 00s era tech on civilian and obsolete chassis, compensating for 50 years of on/off wartime development.
So, my idea in the current case: Cut the barrels just before the muzzle brakes, and instead make it fire as a mortar instead, aiming for the top armour of the unit, and having an initial burst of fire on first contact, when all four guns are loaded. Thoughts?

It still uses 155 and 160mm ammo, more room doesn't necessarily mean that much, especially when you still have to provide all the energy via capacitor, and The Brass is bound to want more ammo on account of the removed brass.

As far as placement is concerned, I think crew would still have priority over equipment, though. A reactor is expensive, but a crew is expensive and has a PR weight when dead.

Also, a fusion reactor on a battlefield? It's gonna be disturbed. A lot. Even before you start firing at it. So, I have to ask: Is it going to have anything like battletech, where a reactor breach provides a...well, it's just a high-energy pyrotechnic display, really.

I'm kind also of wondering about naming your stuff after THAT place but I'll let this guy slide.

You can fix a shattered knee. Not so much an exploded liver, so the armour is more or less focused on the vitals. Has been for centuries, really. See Conquistadors and other folks back when plate would still bounce a bullet.

*Quick Google glance: Romans are estimated at about 30Kg for the kit, a knight at around 27Kg and modern trooops (mostly US, it seems) claim about 36-45Kg, depending a lot on the situation.

While I'm guessing about the second one, here it goes:
I'm guessing it's a choice between (even) greater mobility and firepower. And a booster would provide for a timely evac or an insertion behind enemy defences but then it only has a whole lot of missiles.

Also: Tacitus Archive is the captureable thing, right? Means it'll take a whole lot of effort before you can get one anyway.

Hey, even if most people prefer to remember Sherman zerg rushes, it doesn't change the fact that the Priest was a rather handy piece of equipment once mobile warfare came into play.
Artillery is known as "The king of battle," for a reason. Once said king can actually follow the battle...bad things happen to the side that can't keep up.

Assuming of course, that the general nuclear arsenal hasn't been greatly reduced in the 35 years between now and then.

Here's the best part about that whole 'satellite' thing: You can use the panels on the orbiting satellite to collect the energy and transmit it to the surface as microwaves. Most of it gets through the atmosphere and it doesn't matter how many clouds are in the way.

Would make a tad bit more sense than the current explanation of the sat part but I'm guessing it's trying to provide an economic use for the particle cannon tech in the process.

Plus, the one in Renegade did seem based on that particular piece, so I guess it's all good.

I hate the militia with a burning passion. It's basically an encouragement for massed numbers. And that goes directly against the Brotherhoods preference of subtlety over brute force.
If anything, they should be just as capable as GDI infantry with the added bonus of being able to bugger off easier when things go tits up.
