I'm pretty busy with real-life stuff today, so this'll be a really quick bulletin with lots of renders and few if any actual ingame screenshots. Lots of WIP stuff! Here goes!

Last week I posted some erroneous Cyrillic assets, and the input was useful. With the help of community member bsnighteye I put together some billboards with better Russian on them. Of course, they're pretty small ingame so I don't know how readable they are but it's the thought that counts.


Beer and energy drinks. What more could we need?

I've been working hard on the Nod campaign recently, and some of the missions need pretty specific props. For instance, the Genesis Legion is working towards a chemical missile strike on GDI when you meet them. I wanted to show that they were in the process of scavenging together these weapons by making the silos look like disused missile silos from the previous war.


It's shown in this render next to some previous chemical weapons props which I showed off a couple of months ago, and another work in progress structure - a Nod pyramid. I'm not sold on the design of it yet, but that may be because the limitations of the shape and the aesthetic prevent me from doing everything I want with one pyramid. So there may be another variant coming at some point.

Morpher wanted me to do an Air Processor prop, so I put one together. The idea is that it's part of GDI's reclamation efforts to rid areas of the blight of Tiberium. I'm not entirely OK with using the civilian blue as part of the texture because I would rather reserve that for capturable objects, that way players will know what to do with any capturable structure (capture it) whether or not they've encountered it before.


It still needs to have some environmental wear added by way of dirt and dust, which I shall do soon.

The last thing I have an image of this week is some further work on the environment. I've been working on the veinhole monster and HG_SCIPCION has contributed some wasteland plant life. The VHM needs a few more tendrils and some blending to the real terrain tiles, but for the most part it's coming together.


Once the VHM and it's spreading veins are done, a large and irritating-to-complete project will be out of the way. The VHM is the most obvious piece of orange flora/fauna, and further plant life can be added to the set to flesh out the ecosystem. It should open the doors for a few more interesting maps - I know I've already got a few ideas cooking.

Things I don't have screenshots of but are super important include:
-Nod campaign progressing well, I've almost finished the layout on the mission I showed last week, where you must prevent a technology cult from reawakening an instance of CABAL.
-I'm still working on those skirmish maps I keep on showing.
-Morpher has been working on the AI, which is now semi-competent and finally builds naval units. Yaaaay!

It's a huge step in the right direction for a functional AI, especially since TO adds a lot of things which seem simple and natural for a human but which the AI simply doesn't comprehend. Last week I was playing a game against the AI and was extremely pleased to see it sending engineers into my tech buildings, something I'd never seen it do before.

And that's what we did this week!

So the AI can take control of the satellite and protects it. This is a very new thing for our old TS. I think you've been very busy for passed few weeks.

Hey Orac, will you show us some updates soon? At least tell us that if you are busy with some real life issues. Just a message would be enough for once in a weeek.

Always busy, my friend. Always busy. I do want to get back into the swing of weekly updates but for the last month or so most of the big changes have been very hard to quantify or screenshot, and I haven't really had the time or motivation. Morpher has been doing some really spiffing work though.

I'll see what I can do.

I like having all tech options available.. if i use them is another thing entirely. Personally, i've always wanted a nod faction that could go toe to toe with gdi's heavy armor.

What a fantastic update! I really hope you guys nail the singleplayer component. I've been disappointed with these commando-type missions in the past, mostly because they seem too tough and unforgiving. Hopefully the new units and mechanics flesh out the universe and keep things fresh!

I couldn't agree more, I hate Commando-type missions all the way back to the first C&C.

I've had a love-hate relationship with them. I think well constructed commando missions can be really memorable experiences, but poorly built ones are just annoying. There's nothing worse than moving a few too many tiles to the left, getting killed, and losing the mission. Or not knowing to go to some random spot and blow up the trucks for veterancy crates. That's just stupid. In every mission, I don't want there to be one single step by step method for winning - the S in RTS is for strategy, and people should be allowed to try their own. In general, I'm trying to design any non-base-building missions to have reasonably flexible requirements for failure, so that they're an exercise in shooting things instead of desperately trying not to get shot.
