Mideast Crisis 2] (MEC2) is a total conversion for 'Command and Conquer 3 - Tiberium Wars' set in the near future, letting you use modern technology (such as the Abrams, F-35 and Hind) alongside future technology (such as Drones, Airships and Medibots) in a conflict ranging from Jerusalem to Beirut.
AWACS – In an attempt to make surveillance of borders and settlements more effective and less expensive, Israel turned to airships. The first designs were little more than blimps with cameras on the bottom, but recent models are quite advanced. Wide and flat, they make stable surveillance platforms and are equipped as standard with visual, infra-red and motion-sensing cameras on stabilized mounts.
No detail escapes these devices. Electronic marquee banners along the sides pass on information relevant to anybody in the area. As the threat of air attack from ballistic and cruise missiles, hijacked civilian aircraft and military warplanes has increased, these blimps have been retrofitted with lightweight radomes up top to make sure Israel is never caught off-guard. AWACS blimps in military service are digitally linked to vehicles and troops in the field, and combatants can use information from the blimps to fire much further with accuracy than they otherwise could.
Mechanic Drone – One of Israel's combat utility drones, the Mechanic Drone is a remotely-piloted flying repair system. These drones are also equipped to detect and dispose of mines. In combat, these drones are often paired with high-value vehicles to keep them in the fight longer.
APC – Tracked APCs were proving too damaging to roads in built up areas and were maintenance-intensive to boot, so the IDF developed a new four-wheeled APC to use in more urban environs. With no weapons of its own, this new APC is protected by thick armor and the troops inside who can fire their weapons through gun-ports on all sides. APCs are the most frequently used units to defend town points and other valuable urban positions due to their maneuverability, armor, but lower psychological impact on the locals when compared to tanks.
Merkava – The Merkava V is the latest iteration of Israel's supertank. It's name, translated into English, means "God's Chariot" and it is designed to dominate the battlefield with biblical force. With the best armor protection of any Main Battle Tank in the world, and armed with one of the most devastating guns, the Merkava is more than a match for any enemy. It also has room for a small squad of support troops, and can be modified to serve as a field ambulance. New depleted uranium ammunition is becoming available on a limited basis.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like MidEast Crisis 2. We love games like C&C3: Tiberium Wars that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
