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!

We're keeping our hopes firmly on a realistic 2030!

A lot of stuff goes on behind the scenes though, a lot of internal betas have passed and we do intend to show off new additions and content soon, it just needs to be good enough for public scrutiny!

Honestly I thought I was a perfectionist with what I do but this thing has been in development almost as long as SC2 was. xD

Do you guys just not have a lot of people, or is it just a slow process due to wanting a certain standard or personal issues?

Currently it's mostly myself and OracVX. Most of our staff have been and gone, a lot of contributions that get left behind unfortunately then end up not fitting in properly or requiring extra work, sometimes just being entirely remade. With such a long development time also comes larger expectations from the public and a lot of the "lack of progress" phases are usually due to work or life situations.

Maybe some time soonish. Who knows, we might be on the verge of a public beta.
Of course, that verge could be a huge place.

Still got my eye on this mod, haven't stopped waiting for it ever since I first heard about it back in the summer of 8th grade on project perfect mod. I may be 23 now, but time hasn't diminished my anticipation for this mod!
