A third faction? Explain =)
I did not think in terms of sub-factions - although they do sound interesting, too, but in form of the development and testing of an third faction that might maybe make it one day into the RA mod.
I thought something along the lines of a China/Japan faction, e.g. the 'Empire'. No, not Red Alert 3, just because it sounds nice.
Also, I have not thought about which aspects this faction might incorporate into gameplay, but it could be this:
Special Infantry: Stealth Trooper
Special Infantry: Laser Trooper
GDI Jeep (no transport)
One tank, e.g. take the GDI tank fron CNC. Baron has also a tank model.
MLRS launcher as artillery
mobile AA: ?
stationary AA from NoD
MCV/Conyard (see RA), also radar, power, buildings.
Navy Base: allow speedboats, and transports. Not sure what middle weight ship class there should be. Maybe the rocket cruiser from
Tech center is needed. Extract Ion Cannon from CnC as extra superpower. e.g. very good against ground units/air units, bad against buildings.
Special unit: stealth tank.
Orca from CnC/Nod helicopter fron CNC.
Air ship (e.g. soviet type air ship fron RA2)
That is about it. Again, I have not thought much about the actual positioning of the faction, but this could be discussed here or in chat.
ps By the way, there is a bug in my mod. As I incorporated Your stealth trooper into Combined Conquest, it seems that it lacks a death-crushed animation. See the CC thread for more info. Easy to fix, I have been just too lazy to do it.
