Good day, fine people! Just two days ago, something magnificent occured. I am, of course, talking about the release of the Renegade X beta.

Fobby wrote: Renegade X (formerly known as Renegade 2007) is a mod dedicated to recreating C&C Renegade in the new generation engine, the Unreal Engine 3. We all believe the Command and Conquer series is a very special one, and its fans have been following its games for over a decade now. C&C has been one of the most successful videogame series in the RTS Genre. Our modding team believes that C&C Renegade is truly a hidden gem in the FPS genre.


This new modification opens up a new world for fans of C&C Renegade, and new options for the editors, for all the features of UT3 are added, such as easy downloads from custom servers, better scripting options, smoother gameplay, better netcoding, etc.

C&C Renegade is a slowly dying game, and although I believe there will always be a few people playing it, the release of Renegade X's beta appears to be a toll of the bell for C&C Renegade. The world is changing, advancing. And Renegade 40,000 shall advance too. This is why I would like to announce the change of Renegade 40,000 to the first Total Conversion Modification for Renegade-X. The mod will be renamed Renegade-X 40,000, or RenX40k, but will still maintain the same ModDB page and website.

This move to the UT3 engine is a brilliant improvement, allowing much better detail. Higher quality textures, higher poly models, better code, and much much more options. We hope to work close with [NE]Fobby[GEN] and his team as Renegade-X updates over time until its full release is made, when we can really make a great mod.

We hope to make great progress now, since there are more people willing to mod new engines and games.

Now, to a small update. Most of this month has been spent discussing the pros and cons of moving to this new engine, but Eeevil has also made the Predator Tank's mesh, and will soon edit the Rhino's mesh to be less wide, matching the Predator's. Here's a screencap:


Thanks for tuning in!

You mean it's a spinoff of Renegade X? :-D

We have Renegade X's permission and support, so I guess it's not really a spin-off. Long story short, it's making a first person Dawn of War, of sorts.

why call it renegade if you dropped the engine? Why not come up with a new name?!

We are a mod for the mod, Renegade-X. Therefore, Renegade-X 40,000 is a perfectly good name. I have stated that quite clearly in this very news update. Please read carefully.
