"Yuri has invaded Hollywood by using his mind control technology. He has begun to use the media to spread subliminal propaganda. Here is a sample, with the subliminal mind control properties filtered out."

That's right, for the 6th time in a row we are now in the TOP 100 of the annual ModDB Mod of the Year Awards thanks to your votes and support. As usual, getting into the TOP 100 means that we are up for the 2nd round of voting to rise up in the ranks even higher, which is why we ask you to vote for Mental Omega once MOre! As you know we spend our free time to develop this mod further and all we ask for is your further support in this annual competition, for which we are eternally thankful. Follow this link and click the 'Vote' button to the left of our logo.


To show you our gratitude, we are going to show you some brand new stuff we've been working on. Time for a Mental Omega News Bulletin, in the very classic format.


Mobile Construction Vehicle


Last Bastion's Mastodon


Teratorn


Last Bastion's Sweeper


Haihead's Irritator

The MCV needs no introduction, right? The Mastodon is Last Bastion's T3 "monster tank", equipped with cutting-edge technology to the maximum, its main purpose is to destroy enemy armored vehicles at great ranges and on a large scale. Its plasma railgun has an area of effect and deals lots of damage, however before the attack can happen, the weapon needs to charge up.

The Teratorn is a Tier 1 anti-aircraft vehicle which locks on to enemy aircraft before firing a powerful missile, stronger than most Tier 1 anti-aircraft vehicles, however easier to outmaneuver, especially by faster aircraft. It has no means of attacking ground units.

The Sweeper is a unit unique to the Last Bastion. It is a hover drone vehicle enhanced with the windspin engine which allows it to acquire large speed boosts when near a Spinblade, a special structure deployed via a support power anywhere on the battlefield. The Spinblade can boost many of Side 4's vehicles as well as some infantry units, so strategic deployment of this structure is necessary. When Sweeper is deployed, it becomes cloaked and ready to fire a volley of anti-unit missiles at an unsuspecting enemy. It does not reveal its position when firing, but a careful enemy should have no problems locating it if they notice the source of the missile barrage.

The Irritator is Haihead's special unit designed to throw enemy forces into disarray with an experimental ray mounted on its back. When deployed, the Irritator changes its weapon mode and prepares to fire a flare which will make enemy units easier to target and take more damage.


Soviet Iron Dragon


Soviet Grumble

The Iron Dragon returns as a new stolen tech unit which the Soviets can acquire after infiltrating one of Side 4's special technology structures. Its weapon has been enhanced and so the unstable particle field will now heavily damage all units which cross it while it lasts. With an Iron Dragon in their arsenal, the Soviets will find it easier to eliminate the heavy ground units of Side 4.

The Grumble is an advanced anti-aircraft vehicle with a very long range, which becomes active after deploying its launchers on the ground. This unit cannot fire on the move, however when deployed it will essentially create an impassable barricade for most light aircraft and will have no difficulties taking down the heavier ones as well.


Stay tuned for more updates and thanks for your support thus far!

Now we're talking! A cool and detailed update, nice. So these 2 towers in the last video were support structures, not a T2 defence. Can't wait to see more Side 4 buildings :)

I also see a new tech structure on "diamond is unbreakable", did you forget to introduce it, or it will be introduced later?

I hope the Boidmachine will be revealed in the next bulletin or a sneak peek video, I'm curious how it looks like.

And yeah, I've voted for MO already, right after the round 2 has begun.

Voted too,

It seems as though Haihead is gonna be an offensive specialised faction, with the support of the aforementioned 'Confusion Ray' on the Irritator.

Interestingly, in this article, Speeder makes mention of Side 4's (Foehn's) heavy ground units in the Iron Dragon description. Which makes me wonder, whether the Foehn revolt is simply a cannon faction, or more of a cannon-powerhouse faction with tough units that deal out a lot of damage.

On another note, when you finally announce the Foehn Speeder, are you going to give us some background, or would that be considered spoilers :P

sorry I meant Side 4 :P

So as I was asking, will the Foehn.. I mean Side 4 have any background revealed, or will it all be up to the Campaign to explain their creation?

Campaign. We will only reveal their units in the News Bulletins and videos before the release happens.

as a die hard fan for this great mod i'm sure that i and many would say go easy on the campaigns and the skirmishes (easy should be easy and normal should be normal should be normal and mental should be mental)this game is suppose to be for all players whether advanced or beginners and please reconsider the no saving policy it's about finishing the campaign while playing it not by watching it on youtube!
but nonetheless thank you all for your work and on continuing on providing us with more and more of our childhood's game :)

Not a problem, the Allies have weapons to deal with those. Soviet and Epsilon is the unlucky one here. Don't know much about the revolt tho.

"Its weapon has been enhanced and so the unstable particle field will now heavily damage all units which cross it while it lasts. "

Yes of course it is.

But what does that actually mean? :D

Its written in a way that the reader has to know its prior fuction in the game.
