Renegade 2D (Tiberian Dawn game mode)

Post by hamb »

Hello!

Happy to share an updated release of the Renegade 2D maps for the Tiberian Dawn mod.

ImageImageImage

Downloads
Alpha map (version 1.1.0): https://resource.openra.net/maps/35432/
Bravo map (version 1.1.0): https://resource.openra.net/maps/35433/
Charlie map (version 1.1.0): https://resource.openra.net/maps/35434/

Please report any issues here or on discord/IRC.

What is Renegade 2D?
Gameplay is based on the first person shooter C&C Renegade by Westwood, and is similar to its predecessor C&C Sole Survivor.

Players control a single unit, in up to a 12 vs 12 battle (GDI vs Nod) with other players.
Each player shares a pre-built base with other players on their team.
Each building in the base provides various bonuses.
Vehicles can be purchased by players and require a pilot to be driven.
You earn cash independently of the other players on your team, but there are ways to help team mates out if you've got extra cash.
...And many other systems to match C&C Renegade (like Engineer repair guns or Nuke/Ion beacon strikes).

What's next?
Squash any bugs or balance issues that come up. Also would love feedback or contributions!

Unfortunately the new release has an unknown desync, and it may lag depending on participants' latency

mod looks great to very promising.

My 2 cents :

-It needs a "difficulty" adaptation for different player settings. It is virtually impossible to win the game in 4v4 due to unit and buildings stats. We played a game yesterday which was discovering everything until realizing, no combo/action with only 4 player has enough impact to acheive anything.
-One adaptation of this on red alert mod could go viral. I know i would play some 10v10 20v20 on this for sure.

Thanks everyone for the testing and feedback so far here or on IRC/Discord!

Coming next, I have some rollbacks to balance from this version (oops), and other fixes.

After that, I'm shifting focus to the RA version of this game mode. The base rule yaml needs updating to work with the Lua script, then it should be open for collaboration! I'd love it if people wanted to contribute or even simply make maps.

Tiberian Dawn
Here's version 1.00 of the maps!

Alpha: https://resource.openra.net/maps/35289/
Bravo: https://resource.openra.net/maps/35290/
Charlie: https://resource.openra.net/maps/35291/

I'd like to address the common feedback brought up. Version 0.99 was envisioned as a 12v12 battle -- this was a mistake. Instead, the game-mode is being balanced around 4-on-4 scenarios. Buildings had too much health, certain units also felt too strong or too weak, and players may have had too much money.

As usual, feel free for feedback or contributions!

Red Alert
I'm shifting focus to a Red Alert version of the game mode.

Hope to have more to share in the coming weeks. The intent is to keep the game mode up to date for both official mods.

:eek:

A small test map for Red Alert has been created, with the renegade script loading successfully. Not much to show yet, but here's progress!
