The primary aim of this mod is to get away from the current gameplay which for the most part involves spamming tanks. We are introducing gameplay that requires, scouting and using a variety of units to be successful. Tanks are not the do-all units anymore, instead you need artillery units to take out defenses, tanks to take out artillery units, air units to take out the tanks, and AA units to take out air units. It's basically bringing Rock-Paper-Scissors to the game which we believe makes it more challenging and interesting.

We're also making the factions' abilities exclusive. By that we mean only Nod use mines (so no APC mine drops) and they are also the only ones that use cloaking technology. The same applies for GDI who use more EMP now etc. We think this better defines the play styles of the factions so that you aren't just playing each faction more or less the same way.

The mod isn't focused on adding new units and structures. There are other mods that already do this very well. Our focus is on gameplay and making the game much more interesting, balanced, challenging and fun!

May 2014 Update

1 year ago News 3 comments

It’s been a while but we are looking to release a new version of the mod soon. Svein & I haven’t been able to work on it as much as we would like to because of other commitments, but we always talk about the mod on a regular basis, brain storm and play as often as possible. These long periods between releases, although longer than desired, do allow us to really analyise how the mod is playing and what still needs to be worked on.

As an insight into that, we felt that it’s currently too hard to get to Tier 3 and that Tier 3 units after that took too long to build. So we’re definitely addressing that. There also seemed to be some adjustments needed with the defenses, some seemed a little too powerful, others a little under powered.

We also noticed that missile squads were out-ranging riflemen as well as out gunning them, and overall we wanted to make regular infantry much better against missile squads. So that’s been worked on.
There has also been a lot of work done on making more upgrades work on a per unit basis instead of being a global effect.

Some lower upgrades were being reached too late in the game and therefore often ignored, so we wanted to make some upgrades available at Tier 1. This currently applies to Kevlar Vehicular armor (which is being removed from APC’s) on Predators.

Rigs have been tweaked so that they are available T1 and they deploy quicker. They aren’t cheap though and they are capped to one (rig but not battlebase).

Walls are being significantly strengthened.

Tiberium is more dangerous to (GDI & Nod) units.

Tiberium Infusion has been added as per unit upgrade to more Nod Infantry units.

All engineers are now immune to Tiberium.

GDI Infantry armor upgrades make them resistant to Tiberium but not immune.

Tiberium Vibration Scan is now available for all factions on the radar structure at Tier 1.

Some units that are designed to clear garrisoned building or shoot Air Units (Pitbulls, grenadiers etc.) have been adjusted so that they are less effective against non-primary targets.

EMP durations and counter abilities adjusted.

And there are of course several new maps, this time a lot of tweaked or re-imagined versions of several vanilla maps.

We hope to have more news for you soon, with other possible features added and an estimated release date.

Guess how much FUN it is to watch my buildings taking YEARS to build?

I think the slower build times really make a huge and positive difference to the game by dividing a round into early, mid and late game periods and that stops all the tech being available in the first few minutes of the game.

Having said that it's a balancing act and in 1.3 the build times for some structures was too long and they have been reduced.

As far as "watching" your buildings could do something else with the scout, harass the enemy, etc. ;)

Thanks. There are online tutorials that show you how to mod, and you would also need the files for the mod, which we aren't releasing at this time.

I've had that happen sometimes with different games. Tried alt-tabbing to get to the game that might be minimized, or CTRL-ALT-DEL to close it then re-open?

While this mod tries to balance the game, by increasing late game prices and making superweapons cost and take too much time to be useful, it makes cheap unit spam, the very strategy it wanted to destroy, its most effective strategy. Note, this only applies to GDI. I did not try out Scrin and got bored after 10 minutes of Nod.
