Post news RSS Where I've been/Update on mod

A brief summary on what has been going on/why i haven't been posting on moddb, and a few updates.

Posted by on

Hello all, It has been a while since I have posted here on Moddb, and just to tell you all that im back! I will start re-uploading here quite soon. For those who might say the mod is dead, it is not, as I'm still working on it, however i am re-working and re-building the mod from scratch, and even posting some beta test patches and releases on my discord server (for those who don't know by now).

Now the reason why i have not really posted on Moddb for a while now was just because i re-worked the mod, i didn't really want to post numerous patches everytime i changed something with the factions and clutter my mod download list with like 30 patches/releases of the mod.

Anyways, I'm back on here and will be posting some images/articles and talking about the mod progress, for starters, there are still only 3 factions in the mod, GDI, Nod, and Scrin (as usual, haven't really changed that much in terms of factions, plus i prefer 3 factions instead of 9, 9 factions just hurts my brain thinking of what to theme each faction with as there is barely any option nowadays that another mod has not done yet)

"Will I ever be gone again from Moddb?" We'll see. Since I do have a plan for the direction of the mod, and the plan is to finish what i started here for KW, then maybe port the mod over to TW, so whoever doesn't have, or doesn't like KW, then you will still be given the option to play the mod, but for TW. (Note: Some stuff might not get ported over to TW, which means that some features that are KW exclusive (mechapede or reckoner for example), MIGHT not be seen in TW, it depends really whether I can port them over or not.

With that said, here is the first update list (with some screenshots)

- Predators and Mammoth Tanks and Guardian Cannons have the ability to switch between Railguns and sonic shells (30 seconds to switch between them)

==========================

Now, in that changelog, some of you may notice that alot of things have been changed, some stuff remained the same as in version 1.75, however alot of stuff is different and new, and the theme of GDI is more of a faction that focuses on Zone tech/Sonic tech/tiberium eradication.
To wrap things up, here are a few screenshots of what some of the new stuff looks like:

New Adaptive armor (and finally, i managed to get the shader/model on every unit):

20200511125855 2

New ThermoBaric Missile Upgrade look (also missile trails have been edited, they look much better now with smoke), and the new SandStorm unit:

20200511130557 1

Zone Juggernaut, Mirage Tank, and Athena Cannon (they have adaptive armor in this pic):

20200511130805 1

New Zone Commando and his weapon:

20200511130932 2

20200511131007 1

The New loadout abilities for predator, mammoth, battlebase (orca has new abilities too, but not included in this pic)

20200511130229 1

The point of this loadout is to make units more diverse in their weapons, if you would like burst, select the railgun, however if you like DPS, select sonic shells

Sonic shells deal less damage than railgun but faster reload

Railguns deal more damage than sonic shells but longer reload

And that's about it! More updates will come soon, also if you would like to test out the beta, hop in my discord server, anyone is welcome! Discord Server

Also Hope you all stay safe
