BrewLAN is a mod for Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance that has been in on and off development by a team of one for over half a decade. It adds a wide variety of new units for all factions, as well as offering several new game modes and features. The core design goals for the mod are simple; to add new, interesting, and visually aesthetic units which complement those already in existence and to maximize technical compatibility with other mods.

Looks very badass, interesting how its raduis-damage? And coil just attack unit as turret with lightning effects or have some sort of chain lightning where it can damage multiple units?

Radius is currently the same as a T1, damage is currently equal to the number is seconds since it last fired x 20. Chain lightning is planned if I can get it to work.

Sparks my interest. The Chain Lightning effect would be positively amazing, hopefully you'll be able to wire it up. The current mechanic of charge-depending damage also has potential.

I could have added electricity puns with higher frequency though, but I think that's beyond my capacity.

The burst DPS is god-tier, but the sustain DPS is 40.

Interesting design- Is this UEF or Cybran though, it looks Cybran but best to ask just in case. Also I imagine this will increase the proverbial electric bill quite a bit. Also I will spare any additional tesla trooper quotes, as somebody already hit that nail on the head.

24k energy upfront build cost, 100 energy a second, regardless of if it's firing or not.

@Balthassar,

Looks good, but did you have play my Mod? :P I have add several Lightning Defenses for the UEF only. Maybe these Towers could be a Counterpart for my Versions of the Defenses or what do you think? :)

Best regards

YESSS!!! I was so hoping that a modder would add Tesla towers to the game! And it's even in BrewLAN!

Thank you, Balthassar! :)

This is Tech 1. Will there also be one as Tech 2 and 3?

And thats the reason for it to look properly taller, sturdier and powerfull.
Otherwise being it UEF, despite Cybran atleast using electron bolter and autogun, I would normally expect it to be a Seraphim thingy. Just like ythota othuy with blacks ops uyanah lightning tank and that experi-mental othuy shooting dreadnought.
Ricocheting/going through penetrating piercing chain lightning effect roasting several units, just like lunar corporation electro-cannon or united civilized states gaussian beam..hmm, yeah baby, we want that :D
Sorry, Thrall, warcraft 3 is nice, but we're not shamans xD
And yeah, sc2 taldarim void ray destroyer is nice too.
Bzzzzzz. shock therapy.

The Seraphim never intentionally used lightning as an attack. The residual energy signature from turkeybot is an unintended side-effect, flavour-wise. Cybran have the Zapper. I don't accept BlOps as cannon. Also, this is bigger than the Hades. Any bigger and you wouldn't get to build it on a wall.
