Large World Rebellion Change

There is going to be a change in World Rebellion, mainly...
The timeline in which World Rebellion takes place.
At the moment that is about 20-30 years in the future, and it has proven very difficult
to come up with good looking and still realistic and futuristic units.
Added to that, we have no concept artist, so the team has decided to set the timeline back a bit.
The new timeline is not the past, nor the future, but the present.
So from now on, World Rebellion will take place in the Present.

To summ it up:

The timeline is now around 2005-2010.
The benefits are that we can use current day technology and weapons, which will look
far more realistic in both modeling and texturing.
Also current day tanks will be used, so the Allied will use the Abrams and the Challenger, the
Soviet the T-90 etc, but also other weapons currently used.
The other change that goes with this is that the Soviet Army will have to be remodeled.
Just the Vehicles, the large portion of modeling were the buildings and they stay.
This redo is for various reasons:

Quality differs immensly between vehicles, the old panther tank and L-57 light tank look very bad compared
to what we can do now, and we really want to make every vehicle look good and realistic.
Some of the vehicles are simply a bit too weird looking or not realistic at all.
Most of the vehicles dont even exist in real life, and from now it is a present day mod.
Textures look bad on a lot of the old tanks, and look the same.

Now, the redo looks more then it is.

The soviet army will contain the following vehicles:
3 Main Battle Tanks (T-90 etc)
1 Anti-Air unit
1 IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle) (anti infantry but also anti-air)
1 transport for infantry
1 dozer
1 supply gatherer
1-2 artillery units
1 tank destroyer and a missile launcher.
Also expect new aircraft.

That all makes around 10 ground vehicles to do, and we will add some others later, but with
our current experience and skill, it will be done a lot faster, and look a lot better.

Another change, even though today its Russia and not Soviet, we would have to
redo EVERY single soviet skin to change the Soviet Star into the Russian Flag, added to that, this mod
is all about Soviets, so they stay as Soviets.

Last but not least, a small name change.
The Soviets and RAC will keep their names.
UND will change into: United Coalition Force (UCF).

From now on, our mod is based on the present and you will see current day tanks, vehicles, planes etc.
It might set us back a bit, but we have decided thats its for the best and that it will make the mod look a lot better.

Also:

Since World Rebellion now takes place near present day, and not 20-30 years in the future,
the Story line has been given a change, the main theme is the same of course.
Remember, if you would compare this mod to the Generals Timeline, you will find that World Rebellion takes place just before the GLA war, so this could add cool story elements later on, such as seeing previews of vehicles the GLA would use later on.
