We've moved ModDB pages!!!!!!!!

It's about time. Since Renegade X will be standalone as soon as the Black Dawn campaign hits the Internet, we've been meaning to get a new page on IndieDB. You can access the new page by clicking HERE!

 
About:
 

Renegade X (formerly known as Renegade 2007) is a mod dedicated to recreating C&C Renegade in the new generation engine, the Unreal Engine 3. We all believe the Command and Conquer series is a very special one, and its fans have been following its games for over a decade now. C&C has been one of the most successful videogame series in the RTS Genre. Our modding team believes that C&C Renegade is truly a hidden gem in the FPS genre.

      Why Renegade?

C&C Renegade's specialty was its multiplayer mode, because it was not mindless killing like most games. A player was thrown into a battle as soon as he joined a server, in which teamplay was the only way to win. The game revolves around a war between the Global Defense Initiative, and the Brotherhood of Nod. Each faction would have their own base of operations consisting of buildings. A team had to work together to destroy the enemy base, while keeping theirs intact. By simply switching engines, our team will have fixed many of C&C Renegade's faults. The original game had many problems such as bad netcoding, poor graphics, glitches, etc. Our main goal is to bring this great gameplay to the masses, all the graphical enhancements is merely just icing on the cake.

   Structures:   

  • Obelisk/Advanced Guard Tower (Base defenses) Without these, your team has no automatic defense.
  • Hand of Nod/ Barracks (Purchase higher class infantry) Without this, your team cannot purchase higher-classed infantry.
  • AirStrip/Weapons Factory (purchase vehicles) Without it, your team cannot purchase any vehicles.
  • Power plant (Generates power for your base) Without it your defenses will go offline, income will be cut in half, and all units will be double their original price.
  • Refinery (Sends an AI controlled harvester to collect resource) Without this, you will not receive any free credits
 Objectives:   

There are 2 ways to destroy an enemy building- you can either destroy them by infiltrating the structure and planting C4 explosives, or you can bombard it with vehicles and weapons from the outside. You also have 14 classes of Infantry per team to choose from, as well as 15 vehicles in total.

 New Features: 

We also plan on adding plenty of new features that the original Renegade didn't ship with, such as:

  • New Gameplay modes.
  • Built in voice communication.
  • Server side variables to control how the game is played on your server.
  • And so much more.

We plan on remaking the original standard maps in the new-generation format. The team will be taking advantage of the engine by using much more polygons and bigger resolutions of textures. Although the maps will keep their original appearance and feel introduced in Renegade, they will graphically be much better than the initial versions. Of course, that being said, our project is not only limited to remaking the original maps. We will be making maps of our own design, which will all be littered with strategic and vantage points.

All ingame models will have a fresh new look with todays standards of 3d design, such as normal mapping, bump mapping, and will all be dynamically lit up during gameplay.

12 comments by [NE]Fobby[GEN] on Oct 1st, 2014

Hey guys! It's been a long time since we've had an update, but there's a lot of exciting news that we'd like to share with you today.

Beta 3 is coming out on October 8th!

The long-awaited evolution of Renegade X is coming out in 8 days! After several months of working, testing, and of course, playing our previous beta on the side, we're finally ready to push a new beta build. After beta 3, we will continue working on Renegade X - we've got a lot of exciting stuff coming up for later updates.

So, for Beta 3, you can expect to see the following:

•    Brand new Renegade X launcher!
•    New map: C&C Volcano
•    New items: AT mines and EMP grenades
•    New Black Hand character model
•    Crash fixes
•    New UI features (interactive pause-menu and scoreboard)
•    End-game sequences 
•    Oodles of balance changes and fixes for weapons and vehicles
•    New first-person animations for some weapons
•    Audio changes (silo capturing is now broadcasted, weapon and vehicle sound changes)
•    Texture, LOD, and shader optimizations – game runs much smoother
•    TeamDonate command
•    Weapon and vehicle reticle changes
•    Many glitch fixes
•    And much more!

Beta 3 will be available for FREE at Renegade-x.com on October 8th 2014.

What else is up?

We at Totem Arts have been developing Renegade X for over 7 years. In that time, we released several RenX Unreal Tournament 3 alphas, a standalone singleplayer game, and two standalone multiplayer betas. We've come a long way - this game has matured, and so have we. As a free project, it’s difficult to give Renegade X all of the time and attention that it needs to hit its climax in success. Still, we plan to do everything in our power to support our community and empower those who can help us in that goal.

For the next version of Renegade X (after Beta 3), we will be developing several new maps – including remakes of some of our favourite classics – and we will begin working on a new gamemode, which will be discussed at a later time. We realize that our players have dwindled significantly since our February release: we went from having 400-1000 players on at a time to just 40-80 players. You can still catch a good game of Renegade X at almost any part of the day, but we want to have a large, thriving, self-sufficient community.

Perhaps the biggest cause of the population shrink is the crashing, which became too annoying for many people to bear. We believe we have fixed those problems. Another cause was ingame exploits, and we’ve since developed some countermeasures to the use of exploits. A third reason is that C&C mode – which is very different from what gamers are used to nowadays – perhaps did not appeal to some of the newcomers. While many FPS games are based on k/d ratios and capturing flags, Renegade X is about defending and destroying bases, which is radically different from the mainstream. Renegade X is not for everybody, but we are exploring ways to gain new audiences while retaining our roots.

We are a free game, and therefore we do not have an advertising budget. Renegade X relies completely on word-of-mouth, so please do whatever you can to spread the news. Upload a beta mirror, e-mail a gaming site or magazine, record a YouTube video, post about us on reddit and other forums, and be sure to tell your friends! The bigger our playerbase is, the more work we can put into the game.

With that said, we do aspire to become a Steam game, but we cannot do so without EA’s expressed permission. We have been trying to get to the EA licensing manager, but so far unsuccessfully. If you have any ideas on how Renegade X can become a Steam game, post them in the comments! If you know anyone from EA, point them in our direction please!

Volcano

The new and improved Volcano is complete, and it will be available in Beta 3. Check it out below!

Black Hand Sniper!

Check out the new Black Hand. Looks a lot better than a painted SBH, right?

EMP grenades

We’ve added a new purchasable item in Beta 3 that will be available to both GDI and Nod. The EMP grenade is a C4-replacement that freezes the vehicles in its radius for a few seconds. While the vehicles would still have access to their guns, they cannot move as long as the EMP effect remains.

AT mines

The new AT mine is an anti-armour C4-replacement. A player can deploy a maximum of two AT mines, which have the firepower of a remote-C4. However, these mines can be destroyed by enemy weapons.

New Tiberium Flechette Model

Capturing a Tiberium Silo gives your team the ability to purchase a Tiberium Flechette. We have created a new model - check it out!

--

And that is all for today. Be sure to download Beta 3 on October 8th, and to stay tuned for more Renegade X news!

Oh, and by the way, happy Rene-birthday X! September 30th was the day that we released our very first Renegade X alpha for Unreal Tournament 3 back in 2009. So we wish you fun times ahead and many presents to come :)

I just now found out about this through a video on the world of tanks forums. :P Just watching the trailers, I am in love. I liked the original renegade, and IMHO this is the single best tribute to renegade that I have seen.

Maximum of two weapons was a bit of a downer.

So were the loading times for every objective and the jump-to-cut-scene-at-every-opportunity was also a bit much.
The battlefield styled "You're going off mission, get the **** back" was ******** though but I suppose when there's so many scripts running causing an increase in rendering times then the last thing you want is everything to get broken because someone ran ahead xD

I enjoyed the demo for what it gave me nonetheless (Its just a shame about the rendering times) and look forward to the Multiplayer release.

What? It's just my honest opinion. I like it, it's not bad, but it's not Renegade.

Played through half of the campaign and suffered through two system lockups which required restarting my system via the power button. Graphics were pretty decent. Comparable to games from 2008-2009, but the overall (lack of) brightness makes it difficult to discern any details in their work. AI was pretty terrible. Was difficult to see who and what was attacking you and where it was coming from. On a technical aspect, the foliage looked good. The voice acting was pretty sub-par - didn't sound anywhere…
