In the above video is a showcase of the near complete rework of the Marked of Kane Phantom Artillery which now gives it a wide range of features, making it the first "brains over braun" artillery unit possibly ever implemented in Command and Conquer, and its uses can be planned in unique ways. Here is a summary of its changes, with an explanation of its fire modes after:
The simplest ammunition type of the bunch, effective vs everything; the jack of all trades, master of none. It has the smallest splash radius out of all the projectiles, but generally is the most effective at stopping a heavy tank or Epic Unit assault.
Devastating Mini-Nuke technology, has a shockwave effect that is highly destructive versus buildings and infantry, but insulated vehicles such as tanks are resistant to its effects; light vehicles however are not and will frequently get ripped apart by the explosion. Leaves a pool of noxious short-lived orange radiation behind that lasts just 6 seconds, compared to the regular green radiation. It has the second largest splash radius of the 3 shells.
The only shell that does no damage, nor can it affect infantry; fires a blue shell with a huge splash radius, being the biggest of the 3 shells. Any units or structures hit by this shell will be disabled for 8 seconds, and the Spectre can keep the units disabled repeatedly if the shells don't scatter too far; however, this is down to RNG, and if the follow up shell misses the vehicle will reactivate. Highly effective support shell, works well in conjunction with the other two fire modes.
Other changes are being made to the mod in the meantime, but I'm really happy that I got a reasonably complex system like this to work, which gives a fun new way of using artillery. :D
Will keep everyone updated as I continue working; have a good one!

Great, Great, Great Game. I love fast-paced RTS games, as they embrace their genre to the fullest... you have to use more strategy as simply deciding whether or not you should set up a base at some location requires considerable thought.
