The Condor need your help.

(You can skip to the "Help" part near the bottom of the page if you don't wish to read that wall)

So as some of you aware (or at least I hope you do...) the Condor plane was added to the ZOCOM faction as tier 3 supportive plane (You can thank Ahrimansiah for keep suggesting I should add it to KW in one way or another ;) ).

The Condor don't need to reload like any other GDI's planes or havocrafts, however that because of two main reasons, One it was hard to code it to act that way without bugs, and two because it was planned to be only supportive plane that can't attack, but in the last minute I decided to give it some weapon after all,

However if you thought I simply going to import it from C&C4 and just add it as another bomber, you were wrong.

After looking on the Condor's concept art and unused animation that were in both TT's final and beta version, I found out that EA probably had more rules for it than just standard bomber, but they eventually settle (?) with it just being as the firehawk replacement, the animations and art showed the plane was supposed to either manually or automatically unpack a portable ion canon when it attack some units, and the design hint it could also attack air targets using close range missiles though they both were left unused in the final version and the bones for the missile launchers were missing, leaving the launchers as unusable object that is just for show.

So my idea was to try and "resurrect" that behavior but in cool way that will fit KW and won't steal or completely replace the rule of something else.

The result was EMP havocraft that have second ability to transform midair to fighter aircraft!

The emp mod can only attack vehicles and structures while the fighter is faster and can only attack aircrafts without the need to reload, the catch however is that it's missiles are weaker from the Firehawk, so you can still see your hammerheads and firehawks as your primary planes for anti air attacks.

The Condor however is more like the Cryocopter×Megatangu from RA3, it have supportive and attacking rule that change it's behavior in unexpected way with a press of a button, but for balance sake it have 30s cooldown,

It also won't be able to gain veterancy due to me not find sane way to code it to it without getting reset upon unpacking (Rig, I'm looking at you... Oh wait, I fixed you didn't I?), I don't mind about it though because it was planned to be supportive plane anyway, and in my original plans it not was supposed to attack at all (the fighter mod was for escaping purposes.. Should I also note it the fastest plane in the GDI's fleet?),

So... please kindly ignore that issue or offer me creative way to solve it ;)

Either way I think it fine as it is now.


With that wall finish let move to the main reason this thread was made:


The Condor need to learn from you how to speak, what I mean by that? that I need your soul voice.

Since EA decided the Condor will take the firehawk's rule in C&C4, no voices for it could be found in the files, I did found some engine noises but that was all.

I could easily rename it and use other voice... but thanks to it unique behavior in KW I think a new voice will fit better.

So if you think you can voice it with good quality (and nice voice) please contact me (It can also be a female voice in case you wondered since it fit the ZOCOM's spirit... and since I'm not sexist ;) ),

I also need your help in giving it more lines or see if the ones I used fit the unit:

These are all the lines I was able to come up with (and most of them are copy-paste of other quotes with small changes), let me know if you have more/better quotes for this unit.

You can look at the TW's firehawk wiki page quotes for inspiration (it near the bottom)

Oh and of course it needless to say that the username of anyone who helped (aside anonymous users... unless you really want to stay

anonymous and being credit as one) will be added to the credit note.

Eh eh xD

They have unit name Condor? o.o
Also I believe that SC2 can lead to copyright issues so I should probably stick to EA's games just to be on the safe side.

sadly no unit named condor, but units such as raptor and alot of airforce voices and lines such as:
king of the sky
on standby
flying high
target locked

The Condor reminds me similarly to that C&C4; Firehawk.... that is if EA did rename the Condor to that Firehawk back then. As for the voices, your best bet right now isn't me (because my voice sounds terrible after recording unless I imitate like an animal) but I recommend Zee Hypnotist.

That really is the C&C4; Firehawk, EA earlier art suggest it was other plane name as the Condor before they decide it was the FH.

As for the voices, I guess I can call certain someone if no one will contact me or try to do it myself, Zee Hypnotist may really be good choice but I don't think he interest in this since he didn't reply in my thread on CnCz, But I never ask him directly so who knows...

I try contacting him and see how it goes.
