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.

The signature generators killed it though, pretty much never researched that, and it annoyed me when enemies did, made it look too silly =/

PLEASE MAKE IT A VTOL aircraft the one in TS was it is in one of THE cutscences and if you make it helicopter it should be slower and if it slower IT can't be effective in air to air, or if not make an upgrade that makes it have VTOL like engines.

Starfox100 Jul 27 2010, 5:27am says:

GDI got Orca tech (why building a helicopter with that old technology)
I think the venom is gonna be replaced, venom had also orca tech, not really what it suppose to be. and if you think about it. after TS they suppose just a redesigned harpy with maybe a new name like the venom.

Helicopters? Seriously? How outdated is that?

Nod by now has Orca-like technology, tho not the same, as it seems to be some fancy Anti-gravity stuff. IMHO the Venom fits much better into the TW settings, since that for a change, IS more advanced than TS.

I'm not saying it's a bad model. I'm saying a helicopter is outdated by 2047.

The model is in fact very good.

Burn in hell yourself lol.

In the time of TW, Helicopters are outdated. Both Nod and GDI aren't using Helos anymore.

By the way, I also think the Hammerhead is outdated.

CandCJosephNoob May 27 2011, 9:01am replied:

I don't want to get anybody down but NOD has a Helos or VTOL like aircraft
since the TS the banshee is that aircraft and helicopters are slower and can't
dog fight effectively with Jets(firehawks or scrin figthers or VTOLs) so in support of the !! IDEA "IF THIS IS AN HELICOPTER" IT SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE EFFECTIVE IN AIR TO AIR 'BUT' CAN attack air unit but 'IT' will not be able to move very fast so it cannot KEEP UP WITH THE ORCA and is some what of a sitting DUCK or slow moving turtle to missile infantry and unit that can attack them
so this should be outdated if NOD doesn't want to lose to many HELICOPTERS
pilots but if you guys upgrade this to RUN on very NOD looking not the vanilla
VTOL engines IT looks cool and oh one more thing the Harpy in TS
is also a VTOL

Genestealer_Cultist Jul 31 2010, 12:07pm replied:

I'm going to have to go with Helge here, mostly because I also see Helicopters as way too low tech for Tiberium Wars.

Then again, I also prefer Venomlike aircraft over helicopters.

AbsolutePr00f Aug 2 2010, 2:16am replied:

I agree with ReLiFed. I found this comment in very poor taste.

On the topic of helicopters in the Tiberium universe, I am surprised at the number of people who don't really understand much about practicality when it comes to military technology. Some designs are tried and tested and will never change. Helicopters fit a certain role on the battlefield and they do it well. Fact is they are actually more maneuverable than VTOL aircraft and are probably cheaper to produce.

To say this tech is outdated is to say the treads on a tank are outdated so every vehicle should hover. Or how bout the fact that big walkers are completely impractical in every way. Or guns using bullets. 2047 is not some HUGE leap in time. The principle behind Nod in CnC3 was supposed to be about low tech/production cost units in the beginning, then higher tech units to back them up in the later game.

There is absolutely no reason why this wouldn't fit into the game.

Phoenix848 Aug 8 2010, 6:52pm replied:

Adding on to this I'd like to say that Nod is supposed to be very varied in their tech. (ie hardly trained militants to the exotic flamethrowers we see from the black hand troops to the extremely high tech banshees) My point here is that Nod takes anything it can get and uses it in their army. If Nod could produce cheapish helicopters that offer some great support for other units from the microwave pulses and effective anti air, it would. (Not to confuse the point Helge made with the effectiveness in-game.)

Sorry to people who dont like my opinion can see this as a Harpy MK2 because the TS harpy is an VTOL IT was in the cutscene and in TS it has no helicopter blades

CandCJosephNoob May 27 2011, 9:21am replied:

That True but Helicopters do not have the speed to chase Fast moving aircraft
and the "originally Harpy in TS was a VTOL" and "if so shouldn't this be one its name is the Harpy MK 2" and IF it will replace the Venom the speed should drop but IT will turn faster but will not be able to keep up with orcas running away but it can attack slow moving Heavy VTOL like the Orca bombers or Heavy air units.

But it just an opinion of some guy

GhostEdge Dec 19 2010, 12:10pm replied:

Seriously, both of you. Helge is wrong on the fact about helicopters being outdated, further enforcing AbsolutePr00f's comment. On the other hand, I will conclude that ReLiFed is an arrogant idiot that fails at understanding Helge's statements.
