So it's been a bit longer than we thought (shocking, isn't it?), but here we are again with another update (yes, for real). Hope you all enjoyed yggdrasil's fillers (that's an order, soldier), seems he was the only one of us doing any real work (in the meaning of "things you can show on your smartphone to friends who don't know TSR [yet]") so he earned himself some days off - just in case you were wondering why this sounds a bit different than normal (don't mind these nonsensical comment brackets - we don't either).
Okay, let's not have you wait any longer for the goodies, we've got a brand new Assault Cycle (Vroom!) and Disruptor Tank (Boom!) for you! (Don't worry, yggdrasil wrote that one, so no comments from me)
This is a transmission to the faithful, wherever they may be. To our brothers and sisters in arms I say to you, do not falter in your beliefs for the day of reckoning is near! Soon Kane shall return to us and lead us in the destruction of G.D.I. for they have turned their back on the glory that is Tiberium.
To those who continue our great resistance against the hated oppressors I bring glad tidings. Our engineers have finished upgrading an old friend from the first great struggle. The recon bike is ready to be ridden by our brave brothers and sisters who will use it's twin rocket launchers to tear through their armour regardless of whether they reside on the land or in the skies. G.D.I. shall learn a lesson in blood that we are still to be feared!
Behold that which we have wrought and be filled with pride my brethren.
But not all tidings may be glad for word has reached us of a new weapon to be deployed by the heathen G.D.I. This new monstrosity uses the power of sound itself to destroy those who know the truth. This 'disruptor' as they call it is capable of turning men, women and children to jelly, vehicles into scrap metal and reducing structures to rubble. It still has one weakness though, it cannot target our fine aircraft, use them to render it as dust!
Commit these images to memory my brothers and sisters, so that our enemies can never hide from us.
This ends our transmission to the faithful, may the spirit hand of Kane guide you all.
Nice, huh? We've thrown in some more screenshots than usual (it's good for karma I'm told), so check out all images if you have the time (not an order but definitely a recommendation).
Anyways, most of the work has been in the background lately, fixing code, streamlining things, polishing a few bits here an there (i.e. things you don't show on your smartphone to friends). There are actually some new graphical/FX tweaks of units previously shown now visible on the new images (I'm counting three so far), do you have what it takes to find them? I'll throw in a new screenshot for every one you find in the next two weeks (Whoohoo, challenge time!).
Oh, and if you do have a smartphone - how about showing this to friends (TS fans preferable) who don't know TSR yet? Or twitter about it. Tell your neighbor. Or just... enjoy for yourself.
See ya next time (just kidding, do you really think they'd let me write something like that again?), Golan signing off
