if you are going to replace the fire base could you add a bunker to the Cybernetic General as well

Cepheus can be garrisoned just like the Fire Base. A bunker is not needed as a separate building.

There were two cannons?
I could see only one cannon in vanilla version Fire Base.

The description states "Cybernetic General's Heavy Fire Base". Maybe you don't remember, but the Cybernetic Fire Base was different than the regular Fire Bases.

Fire bases and all similar ones can garrison soldiers but unlike bunker, they can be killed while garrisoned.
Are there same for Cepheus?

No. Cepheus is like Chinese Bunkers.

Those blue strips behind the cannon are the suspensions that recoils after firing?
Would Cepheus and Cyclone have a laser pointer to an enemy when attacking?

All the blue in the render is just housecolor.
Cepheus and Cyclone won't have laser pointers.

I played Airforce but there are no fire bases to build. Did you removed it on purpose?

Target Designator was replaced with Colossus because of balance.

I mean vanilla fire base.
Is Granger has only one defense (patriot missile) in rank one?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

ThePredatorBG

Available defense structures are:

Rank 1 - Patriot Missile
Rank 3 - Patriot Missile + Target Designator

Target Designator looks like a Fire Base, but designates targets for A10 strike.

Why it needs to launch a spy drone? Is Cepheus has limited sight range?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

This Spy Drone is the same as the one for Air Force Comanche. It automatically picks a target for designation. As you know, units gain bonuses when firing at a designated unit. On top of that, designated units become uncloaked.

when generals 2 comes out, and if it modifiable will you make contra for it?

We already know that it won't be moddable. But hey, there's a chance that we'll move to another engine in the future (probably Red Alert 3). The main reason is that Generals always crashes and has performance problems.

Ya like with the 3 faction bug, if you have all three faction your game may crash because EA doesn't want to fix it. that sucks it wont be modifiable it looked pretty cool, i like red alert 3 and all but, I prefer generals, for some reason red alert 3 doesnt seem really that serious, mainly the models.

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

We are talking about the engine. This means that all Generals and Contra stuff will be ported to Red Alert 3. The graphics will be as little cartoony as possible.

cool. I have had this idea, what if for the laser general you give them a ion cannon (from the tiberium wars series) as there superweapon but you could also give it a sort of microwave effect?

Ion Cannons were created only for Super Weapon general. It is an offensive structure.

Ya, people keep saying its OP but i dont think so its rate of fire makes up fore the damage but it randomly firing lasers half way across the map is wierd

The thing with the lasers firing across the map is a bug. It was overpowered, but will be balanced.

Description

Cepheus is a replacement for Cybernetic General's Heavy Fire Base. The two cannons are exchanged with one big cannon. There is a Spy Drone launcher on the other side of the turret. It automatically launches a Spy Drone at a nearby enemy. Cepheus can be garrisoned by 5 soldiers.
