Posted by on

The Red Alert generals agree to take control of most of their alliances MBTs, chaos ensues!
The deadly bomber blimp known has the 'Kirov' joins Nod forces, and in seemingly unimportant news, a female civilian agrees to do deep infiltration solo commando missions for the Global defence alliance...

I am testing a few things out with a view to refining them for Tiberian History release 3. On trial:

  • Various house colour additions
  • Hummer 'night-light'
  • Various portrait changes
  • Scrin TS warship colour change
  • Various shader changes
  • Pop-up Sam site

Heroic GDI grenadier EMP grenade
New ability for a heroic Grenadier squad, to use it select the ability, then make sure your target is within the radius cursor that appears and left click your mouse (you are advised to target either slow moving vehicles or structures).

Heroic Nod Rocket squad 'Rage rocket'
New ability for heroic rocket squads, to use it, select the ability, then use the targeting cursor to aim the rocket, left click to fire. Be warned that the rocket is unguided, however the rocket has a decent effect radius which is indicated by the 'select target' cursor.
Tips for using the Rage rocket

  • The rocket causes an effect similar to KW Redeemers 'Rage generator', but with a much smaller area of effect.
  • Fire the rocket, then run like the wind!
  • You will know what enemies are under it's effect because they will have a red tinge.
  • When using against the AI, it is best not to have any of your units near the target except of course your heroic Rocket squad, this is because the AI is still able to target your units and structures while under the 'Rage' effect.
  • With the above point noted, I'd suggest you approach the intended targets with your heroic rocket squad alone, fire the Rage rocket, and attempt to run away, if the effected units follow you, allow them to kill the heroic Rocket squad (you'll get loads in any normal skirmish game anyhow). Has soon has they've killed the Rocket squad they'll be forced to turn on each other, provided none of your units or structures are close.
  • Also with the point before last in mind, I'd recommend not using it on enemy units that are too close to your base.
  • Enemy units that have the red tinge indicating they are under the rage effect fire twice has fast and have 50% more resistance, this is why it's important not to be close to them when they're mad!
  • The 'Rage' effect last around 30 seconds.
  • The Rage rockets smoke trail is black
