Report article RSS Feed Vortex September update

a small update about the new 17th faction in the game and some of its renders !!!

Posted by flashknight33 on Sep 20th, 2012


welcome in a new update ,late but better than nothing ..i guess!! XD
since most of the work is concentrated on time consuming minor stuff like coding and such that are not worthy a spotlight for updates we decided to reveal the latest and last 17th faction at some point called the empire of shifting sand 
simply it is an ancient egyptian styled faction as such stuff doesnt have their amount of justice in RTS games 
it is like ra3 jap but more bound to the ancient look and futuristic weapons at the same time with a degree of melee weaponry 

here are some of its renders :-

the command center  
is the classic backbone of the factions where you build your workers 

the war factory
well!! there is no much to say here

the portal
is simply a time/space gates to transport your units just like scrin gates

Ra Gate
an end game building for summoning epic units created by Ra

tomb of anubis
a tech building allows building some of the dark underworld units

the obelisk
obviously works like nod's obelisk of light

and now for some units

the war turtle
a mobile pyramid of light attacking was laser ofcourse

falcon light tank
it is the mbt of the egyptian factions ,its fast and have an accurate long range but it has the weakest armor in game

Hover M.A.L.S
the basic artillery unit sending a rain of laser arrows on its targets

petsuchos apc
an amphibious crocodile like apc and has a very tough armor !! infantry cant fire from it

spear necron trooper
oh yeah it is a necron :P with laser spare

archers
simply long ranged archers with laser arrows

and now for some screen shots






that is all for now ,i hope that you have enjoyed it :)

more stuff about nod and this faction are coming soon

So says the egyptian mod designer :-p Maybe we can get (if not estimations on old egyption language, some authentic accents for the npcs from the mod designer himself :-p

I'm sorry, but I don't think this fits into a CNC mod, unless you have a good argument or course.

um you do know you don't have to play with them right? Seriously let the mod maker do what he wants to do, and luckily for this if you don't like the faction you don't have to play with it.

Ancient Aliens. Now that's an awesome idea! :D

Well, why not. I mean, there's a Spartan faction in a RA 2 Mod, so why shouldn't there be aliens? Besides, Scrin are aliens, too ... :P

Maybe the SuperWeapon is a "Super Destructive Laser Shooting Pyramid" or "Super Destructive Sun balls shooting Pyramid" those 2 are awesome...

I would also guess there to be a sphinx involved with this faction at some point. Either a tech building or superweapon if a structure. If not, then an epic unit of some sort.

Story based grudge match between these guys and the GLA would be nice to see in an eventual campaign mission. Looking forward to this faction!
