GDI Changes

Repair Bay

  • Back to release 1 texture.
  • New portrait\button image.

Predator Tank

  • Removed (replaced by Medium tank).

Titan

  • Tool-tip now correctly mentions 'Heroic' rank requirement for 'Shock grenades' ability.
  • Slight adjustment of firing, hit & damage FX.
  • Once tier 2 is reached, the skirmish AI will use the Titan in place of the 'Predator' (now medium tank).
  • AI will now use the 'Shockwave grenade' ability if it gets a Titan to 'Heroic' rank.
  • A Titan that reaches 'Heroic' rank will now be able to detect stealth, in a nod to its heroic ability in Tiberian Sun.

Humvee

  • Now uses house colour.
  • Has 'lights' on night stages.
  • Now uses the 'ObjectGDI' shader.
  • Fixed a bug that meant a Humvee set to aggressive stance could attack aircraft that it could not damage, Humvees can now damage all aircraft.
  • Humvee experience points fixed, previously the Humvees experience was set at the level of a $700 unit, it is now correctly set for a $500 unit.
  • Taking the above into consideration, the Humvees health is reduced to 1800 (from 2000).
  • Weapon damage reduced from 36 to 31. Both changes are designed to reduce the effectiveness of early Humvee & Rocket squad spam.
