Thanks! I tried for a satellite effect like in COD 4 Briefings.

"Searching for GLA" is a bit cheesy though, maybe something like "Scanning for hostiles" or "Gathering Intelligence". Something like that would be a bit cooler in my opinion. But otherwise great job! :D

perhaps a scanner effect like on sonars or rippling circles. and a font change would be nice, it seems out of place in comparison to the rest of the graphics

the scanner reticle should also be moving around rapidly and there should be grid lines in the map so it may look like CoD4. and yeah scanning for hostiles (scanning for hostile activity would be somewhat fitting), hostile activity detected should be the text appearing there. and the font should look more digital than type written.

It's not Google Earth, Google Earth was too low resolution. I used other satellite images off of the internet.

Заставка хорошая и карта намного лучше Шеллмэпки. Буду надеяться что и остальные миссии будут качественные.

Did you decide to use the normal Genereals soundtrack or do you still want me to create an original soundtrack for this briefing?

Description

Here is a sneak peek at what to expect for the Campaign. Made in Adobe After Effects CS5 by me (lil tasman). All briefings will look like this, but respective color tint by what faction you are.
