Zeruel87 mod goal is to add as much content and fun as possible.
While this mod is based on "cnc" it does not change anything from the existing content at all but adds a lot of stuff like a huge addon.
Here are the details what awaits you in this mod as of version 0.4:


7 Playable Factions:

  • GDI & Nod - from the original "cnc" mod, untouched
  • Allied & Soviet - imported from "ra", small changes have been done to Powerplants & Refineries to balance these faction more, because "ra" stuff costs less and does more. Also Minigunner and Rocket Soldiers are used from "cnc" because "ra" Soldiers are stronger.
  • Alpha - AlphaTeam from Warzone2100, units are drawn by hand and buildings have been screenshot and added to the game. This faction has a strong defence with Repairable walls and many defensive turrets.
  • Terran - from SC1, all units and sound files are exported from SC1 and added to the game. Some changes have been done to ensure an easy cnc-like gamestyle.
  • SimCity - from the SNES port, a support oriented faction, able to buff and upgrade allied units as well as allied power providing buildings, in addition the faction gains more money than others to assist allied players with money.

10 Choosable AI's:

  • Cabal, Watson & HAL 9001 - from the original "cnc" mod, untouched
  • EasyAI - Builds all Buildings once except Refineries, easy allround AI.
  • MediumAI - Builds more Refineries and Vehicle Construction buildings than EasyAI.
  • HardAI - Build more of each vital building and even more Refineries and Harvesters, strong allround AI.
  • InfantryRush - Build mainly Infantry Production buildings, attacks in smaller armies than other AI's.
  • VehicleSteamroll - Build mainly Vehicle Production buildings, attacks in huge armies.
  • AirForce - Build mainly Aircraft Production buildings.
  • XXLrandom - does what the name says, can build 4x of each building than the regular "cnc" AI's, so he can play like an idiot and build 4 Rader Domes or build 16 Refineries, harvest all the tiberium and crush you without mercy.

3 AI only "Challenge" factions:
AI's in OpenRa work by telling them what to build and to what maximum number.
these factions have only one main building and up to five respective buildings to build units.
different AI only affect the army size to go attacking, these army sizes are:
- 8 - HAL 9001, InfantryRush
- 15 - EasyAI, Cabal, Watson
- 20 - MediumAI, AirForce
- 30 - HardAI, XXLrandom
- 50 - VehicleSteamroll

  • X_Infantry - All Infantry Units from all available factions. no Vehicles and Aircrafts at all!
  • X_Vehicles - All Vehicles from all available factions. no Infantry and Aircrafts at all!
  • X_Aircrafts - All Aircrafts from all available factions. no Infantry and Vehicles at all!

Other things included:

  • 20 Custom made Maps that are also playable in vanille "CnC".
  • Scripted AI behavior for SimCity Faction that allows the AI to assist other players.

Greetings,

there was no recent Mod update and that is unusual regarding the last couple of months i released an update every 1 - 1,5 months or so and i want to let you guys know why.

The last 3-4 Months of 2018 were a nightmare to me, i don't think i ever had that much stress in my life and there are a couple of reasons:
- my Son was born and a baby consumes loooooooots of time and thats okay! i dont want to and i cant spent all my time on my PC. one thing why is i want to be a good father and spent a lot of time with my Son and on the other hand my fiancee would kill me if i would spent all my time on my PC :)
- i unexpectedly lost my Job and money is always needed, especially with a Baby and...
- getting a new appartement for my family and a loan for it proved to be a hassle.

now for the good news:
- the Baby and my fiancee are doing great!
- i recently found a new job!
- i got the loan after more the 3 months of hassle and therefore got the bigger appartment for my family!

okay and finally to the future of the mod:
i still enjoy working on the mod and while i got little time to do new content i allways got some free time to think of new conceptcts for content.
v0.5 will feature something completely new to the mod and that is new "Options" before you start the game.
i dont want to spoil to much but it has something to to with new well known game cameos that are to small for a whole new faction :)

Until next time Commanders!

Comrade, I have a faction almost ready, let's say it's 98%, in this case I'm creating the faction of the Warzone 2100 Scavengers, there are all the original units of the Scavengers and those that come from the Ultimate Scavenger mod. the only inconvenient is that you need an HQ and Technology Center, for now I use the HQ of the Alphas momentarily

i also have a concept in my mind of an alternate "Alpha" Faction where you have to research everything you can build in the research center, much more like in the Original "Warzone 2100".
i tested it out once and it works great.
but like i said, it is just a concept, maybe i add it in the future :) as "true Alpha" or "original Alpha" or "alternative Alpha" faction.

How can you create 3d sprites? I used to take screenshots of Google Sketchup

to create 3d sprites like all my "Alpha" Units?
i figuered my own way out and this is how i create my 3d models:

i use the program called "MagicaVoxel", it is a editor in which you use blocks (like in minecraft) to create 3d models.
since CnC is very pixelated it is more then enough for the task :)
after i created my model i rotated the camera around the model and took 32 screenshots.
In "MagicaVoxel" you have a display how much degree the camera is rotated, i took 360 degree / 32 which is 11,25 or in other words, i put the camera at 45 degree angle and took screenshot at 0 degree, then 11 then 22 then 33 then 45 (since there are only full numbers like 11 and not 11,25)

after that i imported all 32 screenshots in "Gimp", cut them out a bit and scaled them if neccesary and saved it as a .gif.

As a last step i imported the .gif in "SHP Builder" changed neccesary colors with ALT+A (Replace Color tool) and evened out some errors that occure then importing.

Finally i saved it as a .SHP (TS) file that OpenRa needs.

I hope my explanation was understandable, if not feel free to ask :)

hey, could you possibly add a faction that has access to everything for the players? and somehow mod alpha to allow for building of walls on resources and cliff sides? As well as add like some sort of gate option for all faction's walls? and give alpha barbed wire

i thought about adding a "debug" or "cheating" faction that has access to all building possibilities, but... well... the building queues would get really fully stuffed, you can see a glimpse of what i mean if you play as "X_Vehicles" and look at the Vehicle Queue :)

another thing i consider at the moment is to add a "custom faction".
my concept there is that you can choose for each queue (building, defence, infantry, vehicle, aircraft) one of the existing factions.
For Example: defence from Alpha, Infantry vom Terran, Vehicle Queue from SimCity and Aircraft from Soviet.

i think i could easily make Alpha able to build walls on cliffs and other obstacle, you can wall yourself more beautiful in but it is not as it was in the iriginal game "Warzone 2100" (okay... not much is like in the original game anyway :) ) and it would be another great advantage for Alpha.

and Gates are possible to make, i considered it for Alpha.
the latest versions of Warzone210 even have gates included which the original game back in the time has not got.
so... hmm... maybe i add gates for Alpha in the future.

EDIT: oh, i forgot the barbed wire thing.
in the Original game there are "tank traps" that are exactly the same as "barbed wire" or "sandbag barrier" from CnC, you can shoot over it but cannot pass it.
again, i considered adding them but i didnt in the end.
i also think about adding new stuff to existing factions, like the alpha "tank traps"

And you plan to include the Warzone 2100 Scavenger faction, which is cheap units of fast production
