This modification offers an alternative gameplay to Tiberian Wars involving many Tiberian Sun units which many CnC fans (like me) missing in vanilla CNC3 and add even new my made units which you can't find anywhere else. Story is quite the same like Tiberian Wars, but is all about what if GDI and Nod do not abandon technologies they have used in Tiberian Sun era and instead of that further developed them. But it's not only that, there are many visual, sound and balance changes which I want to see and hear in my mod, new sounds, new music, new effects (like blood and gore, new infantry deaths, new more realistic missile trails) and many more.

This was one of the last things I expected to see today!

Totally made my afternoon. Can't wait to find out what this bugger actually is.

1. It has 4 legs, not 3. Therefore ot isnt a tripod.
2. Balance suggestion for the mod: make the Nod SAM turret spawn as hub and 2
3. Werent the Scrin not in TS? And if they were, this is what they shouldve looked like.
**Rant over**

HELL YES! The old tripod looks like a frekin testicle with tentacles. Not to mention those huge *** legs. This actually looks very interesting and fits the new scrin style you already created.
Edit: speaking off, any plans on a new release this year ? Also don't forget to call this one a quad-pod :P

It's called an angle if view. If you look at the first and second pic with this new design you will see that 4th leg. The way that back leg is seen in this pic on the side ... don't you think this mech would have some limping problems :|

Yes there is indeed 4 legs. I have tried to animate 3 legs once and i tell you that is real pain in the ... you know where i think xD
Might sound strange, 3 legs should be less work, but its not. There is so big problem to make it looks natural. That is why nature doesnt use it also xD

Never really liked the idea of a tripod tbh. Except for the ones in the half life universe i have yet to see one that looks decent. Quad/Hex Legs FTW.

the whole fuzz about alien tripods comes from one of the first sci-fi works ever, "War of the Worlds" with its iconic Martian tripods. Really the "over used" tripods are just shout-outs to the grandfather of the genre. Image.lyricspond.com

Dude you might be amazed by this, but i was reading that book when you were a little kid. Just because i don't like tripod design doesn't meant i dunno **** about sci-fi literature.

I know that picture xD. Jeff Wayne's war of the worlds, right? Im not big fan of musicals, but this one is really intersting with intersting 70´s music say at least xD.
Not bad, not bad at all.

I wish the Scrin mission in London had allowed the player to use tripods. It would've been a nice homage.

Maybe make it a bit taller? Just to make it a bit more imposing. It is supposed to be a Scrin dooms day weapon. Well I guess most of their tech is but just a thought. It looks amazing

I think it's a great update. I would suggest that the legs would have a similar texture to the body, if only to make them look a bit more armored, but it's a minor thing really.

Will it still be able to attack more than one target at a time?

Yes it can attack more than one target at time. Every weapon can have its own target actually, just like other units with multiple turrets mount.

This is awesome! Really hope it makes it into the mod! Especially with the resin of the avatar, the tripod is cool, but given its size and whatnot it just seems.. Un proportional.. Kind of.. It just seems kind of.. Drunk haha.. And fragile.. I'll get back to you when I find a better way to describe it XD

PS I am loving the scrin changes in general, they are seeming more like terrestrial aliens and units, which makes them far more fun to use (in my opinion at least..) hoping more, like the seeker in particular, are looking at, at least a minor cosmetic change, they are supposed to be flimsy, but just look kinda.. Meh idk :s lol

Is it just me, or does it also look like Carnius has been working on new explosion effects? Maybe I just haven't noticed it before, but that one at the bottom looks brand new or a more detailed version of a current one (my graphics are at highest).

I made this particle effect, but its not new, its already in v1.5. You can´t probably notice all details when its in motion. I was surprised by myself how cool it looks like on this particular picture. xD

You should use that particle effect for grenades, 'cause it looks like there's shrapnel flying out of the blast.

I really like this direction, but I also liked the old tripod, too. Do y'think you could re-purpose it into some kind of infantry, maybe alongside the old corrupter? Only for the sake of saving good assets. Nice work, as usual!

It looks so much nicer than the tripod there is no competition in my mind. Also, will it have the same upgrades? Or different ones? And will it have some special effect? Maybe focusing all three streams into a single one for increased damage against a single target? Like a Death Star with legs, focus the three beams together, charge a single point, then fire a large powerful beam with a cooldown.

Do all three weapons on that thing fire at the same target? It would OP if it did that.

Description

How about new Annihilator for upcoming v1.52.
I´m somewhat not quite comfortable with old one anymore. The fact it doesnt use its third cannon and overall appereance convinced me to improve it. Whatever its real improvement or not i leave on you for now. So please coment if you like it or not.
