Heyho,

liked godzila, added tiberium and enough spawnpoints to have people decide balance on their own.

Edit: Also thanks for the credits :3

Example from TS-Branch

MechRailgun:
ROF: 60
Range: 8c0
Burst: 2
BurstDelay: 10
Charges: yes
Report: RAILUSE5.AUD
Projectile: LaserZap
Color: 200,0,255,255
BeamWidth: 2

Warhead:
Spread: 42
InfDeath: 5
Damage: 200

Btw: Have you thought of using voxels for every vehicle? Since there are a thousend voxels around and you could integrate both TS and RA2 you'll have great variety. Also changing turrets and stuff is pretty easy! http://yrarg.cncguild.net/ for RA2 and ppmsite.com for TS and RA2

Heyho,

two things.

First: HollowEye? I forgot to get the script and stuff out of your map and trying on my own just crashs it. Could you look into it? Would be very nice!

Second: I made an own new map. Not as special as Hagakure but it think Santa Fe (Valentine) should be nice and also could work as a mission-map if someone wants to help me or try it himself. Still could use some improvement.

I have, but not for this mod. Was thinking of making a new mod using nice large detailed voxels, but i'll tackle that challenge in the summer when I have more free time.

10x for the code, it works great. Now all I have to do is figure out how to make the railguns damage everything in their path.

I keep getting the editor crash bug too... the only way to fix it is to do a clean install of openRA. :(

Heyho,

i'd gladly like to join your new project then. Still depends on some other things. If i get the starboundproject to run for itself i can get out of it and start something new here. I think others may want to join, too since you really got your act together. (I hope this means what it think it means.)

Anyway... keep on rocking!

I'd love to have you on the project - I could really use new input... there's lots of things that could be done to this mod - and I would like to get started on the campaign, but there are still things to work out.

i would love to have your input on level design, missions, techtrees and more...

Heyho,

i'd like to help, yes. But i'm only good at mapmaking and doing stupid-work. I'd love to learn how to make a decent mission with briefing, events, toggle-scripts etc., though.

I didn't know anything about modding openra when I started, but I learned by doing, as the project moved along. I'm making this as a hobby - no deadlines, no stress. It will be ready when it's ready :D

fun to play

I really like this mod.
Its nice if you or us can help out with this:

1: Announce it more places.
2: Have dedicated server hosting it (name should be shorten link to this forum?)
3: Make at least one short fun scripted game (singeplayer) in it. (simple, just like 3 vs 1 easy, but introducing all the new units for for each faction.

I advertised you at https://plus.google.com/b/1003323649311 ... 8a8DRA3xUL

Had a look at the (huge) RAR file. You are duplicating a lot of files which does not make maintaining your mod easier. We offer several ways of re-using files by referencing folders and YAML of other mods. Especially there is no need to ship a duplicate of OpenRA.Mods.RA.dll and the mods/ra/bits files. See https://github.com/Mailaender/OpenRA/tr ... ts/mods/d2 for an example on how to start a mod by inheriting 99% of an existing one.

Hi guys, sorry it took me so long to reply, I've just been very busy with collage lately, midterms and all...

@zypress1 - all of those are great ideas, unfortunately, for the next 3 weeks I will be a little pressed for time, but if anyone wants to help with what you proposed above, I'm all for it! I've been gathering a few screens / videos and building up some sketches for a nice modDB/desura page, but I'm not quite there yet.

Hosting a dedicated server will be a little tricky for me, but not impossible.

Like I said in the first post, the mod will have a campaign, featuring all new units and a story bridging the red alert and tiberium dawn campaigns (the fall of the Soviet union, the rise of Kane and Nod, the threat of tiberium and the creation of SpecOps9 / Global Defense Initiative) - timeline will stretch from the post RA era, to the post Tiberian Dawn era. Unfortunately, building a campaign is very time consuming, but one to tree missions will be launched in Alpha 0.9. I want to have a Singleplayer / campaign button set up in the menu, so you can just pick a side and start playing without any further fiddleing - trouble is, I would like the game engine to be able to jump from map to map, without the need to manually select a mission - and I would like the ability to Save an ongoing campaign, things that have not been implemented into the engine yet. Regardless, i will be releasing the first tree missions.

Thank you for the advertising, it shows your confidence in this project, and I really appreciate it! It's a nice incentive to do more.

I know I have a lot of dupes and unused files in there... I'll start cleaning up the mod as soon as I reach Beta stage.

UPDATE:

Got the first two NOD mission maps built and populated, but I'm having trouble scripting them...

For example: I need an actor (a gunboat) to start patrolling between two points on a map (waypoint01 and waypoint02) and attack everything in it's path. How yould I do that?

Does the game engine allow for unit stances like the RA engine did? (Ex. Hunt,sleep or Guard stance) and if it does, where can I find the switches and how do I implement them for any given actor?

Some code examples would really help...
