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.

Nod should get some version of the Montuak and Scrin, the Scrin Ship even though Nod built it, I can't think of anything else.

size? Kodiak was pretty big, and also a moblie command space/atmosphere craft, not made for combat.

It still looks big enough I think, especially when you compare it to the other units and buildings (whose sizes are also rescaled for the purpose of gameplay).

It's true that the original Kodiak was primarily used as a mobile command ship by McNeil during TS, but I believe it's suitable and also smart that this newly constructed Kodiak be designed to have defense/attack capabilities. If you remember the video in TS, one could say GDI learned from that ambush of Banshees :)

i'd add to mac's reply (over half year chat, but oh well :D), that after TS events, GDI might have develop Kodiak-class further and even split it to sub-classes. I mean in mod, we see heavy transport-type Kodiak vessel transporting Mammoth Mk. II, this is close support class Kodiak

Looks like it's using its Stratofighter boost here - I'm assuming it'll function just like what the Firehawk had, where it'll exit the screen and then reappear on the map elsewhere? Very fitting for this unit and it looks great!

It looks a bit too small. And I really hope you dont just stick guns on this thing, as 56er said, the Kodiak was a mobile command centre.

Okay so thats what I get for posting before looking at the rest of the uploads. Alright then, but remember how easily the Kodiak went down? Hit by an ion-storm strike and it crashed...

Remember "Weather The Storm" and its main objective?

Pretty ******* sure GDI would at least consider putting some boom on that ****** after that little fiasco.

Kodiak is not a combat unit, and it will look bad hanging in the air even with good animations like orka fighter.

Here's an idea: Let it land and deploy a small force. Say...a Surveyor and some infantry.
Though, such an ability wouldn't combine will the least if you ask everyone else.

its great to see the kodiak return, but i notice that GDI gets 2 things from the Tacitus (kodiak & colossus walker). Do the other factions get a second thing also?

I can't wait until the next version comes out. I will admit that I played Nod first for CnC3 but when this mod came out I played GDI first just because of Wolverines and Titans.

go to downloads, download the lattest version and read the Readme file. There it says where you have to put the mod folder in. Its quite easy, but this ship is only on the next version wich didnt come out yet.
