RSS Contra X work in progress - News Update 1

Welcome to the new stage of Contra mod progress!!!

Posted by on

Hi folks!

After some longer period of silence, we are bringing new update which is official start of new Contra, as we call it Contra X!

We have made a lot of changes so far, but more interesting are always visual ones. As usual we were waiting for more of them to gather up, but we decided to not to follow this practice anymore.
This means, we will post more frequent updates, even if they are only related to one single picture.

Few new eye candy stuff which are made.

Omega

Laser generals super unit Omega got complete makeover, as this unit left as probably the oldest super unit it was about time to match him with other high quality units. He got what he deserved!

Laser defense turret

Similar story is with laser defense turret. Even tho old model was good, it didn't fit USA scheme.

Dragon Patria

Some artwork for infantry general which also affects gameplay. We removed old Dragon wheeled unit which was really bad looking, and also didn't fit the gameplay. Now Patria based units got new member with flamethrower.

ECM Patria

Yes, we already had ECM Patria before, now we decided to bring him once more. The reason behind this comeback is the fact that Patria vehicles got through lot of balance changes to the point where replacing current ECM unit with Patria based one doesn't affect gameplay in a bad way (well, there are still tests left to do).

Cloning Vat

The brand new thing for China Infantry general is Cloning Vat (yes, you got that right Yuri). This was planned for a long time, and now is finally realized. China Infantry General has special structure (as all generals have, or will have 'till the end). This structure has doubled stats from Barracks (cost, build time, and power consumption) but it also gives you clones production. You are now able to produce original soldier and its clone for a price and build time of normal soldier. So, instead of one Tank Hunter, you will get two for the same price and build time. This change will help Infantry general to utilize infantry units even more.
And yes, those are clones in tubes.

Cloning Vat1

At the end, we surely want to tell you that new HD game GUI is in progress thanks to their original creators and our team which will adapt it to Contra. But more of that in next updates.

Also, thank you all for your support, we really appreciate that!

Подскажите пожалуйста)
Если вы решили затронуть пехотного генерала Китая,то можно ли пересмотреть такой юнит как передвижную крепость??
Она слаба по моему мнению,ее могут уничтожить обычные солдаты тракса,выбив оттуда всю состовляющую,и у нее на этот случай нету никаких контрмер,броня не такая уже и крепкая,если ее можно сравнивать с Сатурном(Супероружейником),то Сатурн хотя бы ведет огонь и по воздушным целям,та и пехоту чпокает на ура,понятное дело это другой генерал и тд,но все же,хотя бы пару вспомогательный орудий добавить крепости было бы не лишним я думаю))))
Или как то повысить ее живучесть?

Please tell me)
If you decide to affect the infantry general of China, can you reconsider such a unit as a mobile fortress ??
She is weak in my opinion, she can be destroyed by ordinary soldiers of the thrux, knocking out everything from there, and she does not have any countermeasures in this case, the armor is not so strong, if it can be compared with Saturn (Superweapon), then Saturn at least leads fire on air targets, and the infantry chpokayet with a bang, of course, this is a different general, and so on, but still, at least a couple of auxiliary guns to add a fortress would not be superfluous, I think))))
Or how to increase its survivability?

Yes, 2 turrets are planned to be added to Infantry Superunit. But not strong one, just something to be used when there are no infantry units inside.

Ooh, a new update. It is look very good, especially unit reskin and new stuff (maybe), including the cloning vat itself which is good implementation for infantry general as infantries is one of his best arsenal yet (I know it is similar to RA2 YR cloning vat mechanism).

By the way, good news highlight, Contra Team. I can't wait to see what's inside on the new Contra X update soon. Keep it up!

can u make the long range turret for laser general mortar type..
cause if its blocked by other turret it wont hit..
and also can u add some mortar turret on general flame?
and the sniper tank on tank generals is kinda weird cause if he attack he need to move a little to hit again..
like the nuke canon
and if possible can you add propaganda effect on the heavy air tank..
like the overlord type..
that will be nice..

will the toxin tunnels and some previous gla defenses make a return ?
also a strategy center for gla boss where he could choose one of the four gla generals tactics like cybernetics protocols would be cool :)
thanks you for all your hard works and attention to details.

Такой вопрос к разработчикам - можно ли приказы юнитам (охрана и движение с атакой) заменить на модель поведения - стандартная, когда стреляют только в ответ; охранная, когда атакуют всех, кто в зоне досягаемости, но с позиции не уезжаю; агрессивная, когда атакуют и преследуют вообще всех и вся?
Еще интересует, можно ли как-то запретить союзным ботам строить в пределах моей базы хотя бы, а то в последнее время помимо ресурсного центра союзник может построить завод или продавца оружия прям в моем штабе.
И последнее, как сохранить настройки графики в лаунчере? Я выставляю все галочки, но при закрытии окна они пропадают.
