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.
Version 1.2 is close to completion, but there have been some slow-downs in the final stages due to personal schedules and technical problems. Having said that we are very focused on getting this next release out but we are now looking at it being close to a Christmas release.
Some features that will be included;
Tier 3 defense upgrades
More upgrades available to ground units (more repair drones, speed upgrades, railguns, armor upgrades etc.)
Better game economy
More changes to Scrin to further define their play style
More stealth options when attacking bases for Nod
AA ground units more effective
Some upgrades can now be researched and then apply globally, such as the dig-in ability which once researched has no cost at the unit level which means infantry will not stop half way into making a bunker.
Structure caps to stop AI spamming one structure (e.g. Refineries)
GDI & Nod commandos effective against any vehicle, not just tier 3's
For the 3rd year running the time has come to kick off Mod Appreciation Week 2017 and talk about our favorite mods. To thank those from our community who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with some friends of Mod DB and have a bunch of Steam keys to giveaway:
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 #modlove2017
After you have linked to a mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking a few members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of the above games.
