Greetings GenX fans

It's been WAAY too long since our last update so let's cut the small talk and dive right into it Smiley

NEW PATRIOT MISSILE BATTERY


The Patriot missile has always been the primary air defense missile of the US army. However in recent years the patriot has been modified to also attack ground found following the recent GLA threat.

Even today, patriot missiles are still capable of taking down targets swiftly and precisely. However it's launcher, which was specifically designed to be mobile, simply lacked proper protection from direct attack. On top of this, the patriot still had to be manually reloaded by removing it's expended launch tubes and replacing them with new ones.

The US military needed a more permanent solution, and ZTech Industries seems to have brought exactly that. The new design features a sturdier frame with all it's components hidden inside or under the launcher for better protection. One of the biggest advantages of the new launcher is it's ability to reload itself.

After expending it's current payload it will tilt it's launcher upwards 90 degrees untill the back part of the launcher meets up with the top of the base. New missiles will then be loaded from a secret chamber underground.


Aside from a shiny new model, the patriot also got upgraded internally. It can now target and shoot targets from behind other patriots, making it's assisted targeting ability a hell lot more effective.

The patriot has also received more visuals, shown above is it's new assisted targeting effect.

NEW GLA UNIT VISUALS


The toxin tractor now has proper salvage visuals. The un-upgraded model has 2 tiny toxin barrels, at 1st salvage the barrels get bigger, then at 2nd salvage it gets a third barrel at the back. The barrels also change color depending on the type of toxin.

Next up Thrax's scud launcher


not much to say here, I gave the missiles a new texture that resembles the bio-baikanour rocket from the ZH campaign. I also edited the missile support a bit.

NEW ANTHRAX FIELD VISUALS


"nothing can live beneath my toxin cloud, general" - credits to Ion Cannon for the smoke effects

NEW CYBER ATTACK GEN POWER

It's a replacement for the old EMP bomb for China. I dunno about you guys but the EMP bomb to me seems boring. So I decided to replace it with this:


Basically does the same thing as the EMP bomb, but it's no longer plane dropped, and it disables things continously for a certain period of time meaning while the skull is there anything that enters the field gets disabled.

Well that's it for this month, cya next time Smiley

Hurr, the Toxin Tractor's barrels actually look like they are filled with liquid rather than being a plain house colour. :)

:D but I have next problem! What does it means "TBD" ( Tousen Bad Days - I hope not )? Zeke you are in team GenX! It's looks like this will be the best mod to Z:H! If I may say smth, use first project of Phalanx Tank in mod, becouse second model (with two railgun cannons) it' s looks like overlord! I think it is important to tell fractions apart of themselvs (if you know what i mean)! If you want, i can translate all the informations, in game on polish language (I' m from Poland). But I can do it for you in txt documents only, becouse I don' t know how to program! If you want relesed GenX with language patch, I serve myself :D! ( I'm better in translating than writing in english as you can see ;D )! my mail pierrrot@o2.pl

TBD means "to be determined" meaning there is no release date.

If you check the post dates, the mammoth looking phalanx is the older one, the newer one is the one with only one cannon. :)

Also, thank you for your translator offer, I'll be sure to contact you shortly after the 1st beta release. ;)
