Howdy sports fans! More news from the Isotx lair today, including a new RTS unit, Isotx T-shirts, and reminders about the contests going on!
First, my favorite news. I've been looking forward to posting this for a while! In Release 1.5, there will be many new units. Among these will be a Rahmos attack wolfhound, reminiscent of the attack dogs from Red Alert. It can be ordered around in the RTS view like any normal unit, and in First Person mode using either the Sergeant or the General, the player can order them around with a dog whistle much like the Half Life 2 antlions. While dogs are vulnerable and can be put down with just a few bullets, they also have a vicious bite capable of chewing the throat out of any Resistance caught unprepared. The model is finished, but the unit itself has not been implemented into the game yet. So, here are some posed shots I took in GMod!
In other Isotx news, we've finally gotten our T-shirts available in the store! Right now there's only one kind, but hopefully if we get a good response, more will be made available, such as with Iron Grip and MidEast Crisis themes. Stop by the store and pick one up for yourself!
A reminder! The Iron Grip mapping competition ends in just over a week! If you're working on a map, get it finished and submit it for testing! The more feedback you get to help make last-minute fixes, the better your map will be! Good luck to you all! On a related note, we're still holding our will-map-for-food competition - If you haven't voted yet,do so!
Finally, keep your ears to the ground and check back soon - within days I'll have another big news post for you all, including details on the Pro vs Joe Saturday Tournament we'll be hosting on a weekly basis, as well as more information concerning that new Military page you may have noticed in the Iron Grip Universe section!
