  1. I'm sure that''s exactly it. I've had this question before myself, but once you realize how much work it would be, you see that it's never going to be worth it, especially considering the most popular component is the multiplayer. It's why Renegade X never did anything else with Black Dawn, I imagine; too much work for no payoff. Much better to focus all your efforts into the part that you know everyone will play.
  2. I always loved Renegade, despite it's flaws, it was one of the first shooter games I ever got my hands on, and is still really unique as far as the games I've played. I never tried the multiplayer, aside from some casual LAN games with my brothers, but I still put many, many hours into it, and finishing the campaign for the first time was one of my proudest moments. Happy birthday Renegade, and thanks to the team here and the RenX people for keeping this thing alive.
  3. I wish it flew, but I have no idea how to do anything in Lua, lol. Thanks again.
  4. Thanks so much! It's the thing I'm most proud of. Bitch to build though, especially the cockpit. The black lines around the canopy were not fun to figure out how to do.
  5. Yeah the C&C content over there is lacking, I think I've probably got a pretty large chunk of it. I did however find some rather basic sets waaaaay back when, that had some pretty cool Red Alert 2 stuff. There was an Allied Barracks, a Tech Center, a ConYard, a War Factory, some walls, as well as a Prism Tower and a Pillbox. There was Soviet stuff too. Later on I found Generals models, like this really neat animated Particle Cannon. There was little if any Tiberian Sun content though(There was this one guy making some pretty cool models though, even had a Kodiak and a Philadelphia), so I ended up making my own stuff.
  6. Thank you both! Yeah, lots of hours! It's fun though, being able to recreate this stuff and do whatever I want with it(which hasn't been much, truth be told). I actually remember seeing AircraftKiller around the old Bluehell forums, but couldn't remember if he'd made the jump over here. He makes good stuff, lol. Thanks for your interest though! Means a lot.
  7. Hey all! I was told to speak up more by Mr. Einstein. I don't usually have much to say, but I thought you all might have some interest in some of my Roblox modeling work, since you showed interest back when I posted my reimagined M16 Mk. II Pulse Rifle. I still build a little for fun, and I make C&C stuff pretty often, much of which tends to be Tiberian Sun or Renegade. So, here are pictures of some of my latest work or updates to old stuff. Front view of my GDI Barracks. This is unfortunately the only outside shot I took, but I got all the external details thanks to the Reborn mod, which has been a huge help recreating this stuff. It has a full interior, but I wasn't able to show it due to upload limits. This is a quick vignette I threw together using my Riparius models, and all my wall components(Gate, Concrete Wall, Vulcan, RPG, and SAM) One of my larger vignettes depicting a scaled down scene from Renegade's first mission, The Scorpion Hunters. I took a lot of inspiration from Ren-X for a lot of the models used, mostly in the vehicles and weapons. Picture of my ORCA Maintenance Hanger. I used a pair of pictures from a guy named AircraftKiller as inspiration, but threw in my own flair. The ORCAs I've been building for years, and this is their current best state, which I think is pretty good. They're a mashup of a couple dozen reference pictures I've found over the time I've been working on them, so they're not really accurate to TD. Better view of the ORCA from the top. I hope you all like these! I've put a lot of work into this stuff, it's sort of a hobby of mine.
  8. Sorry! I'm just a quiet person, lol.
  9. Happy birthday you guys! I've actually been here, at least as a lurker, for the entire time, and what a ride it's been. I'll be sticking around for the next four, and I'm excited to see what comes in that time.
  10. Fingers quadruple crossed. They've got this almost perfect, if they screw it up now, I will be so pissed off.
  11. Got an update post from the team! Quite a bit of info here, and I love the idea of the Community Council. There's a list of some of the names of Council members in the comments, but not everyone has put forward their names yet.
  12. That's his play, man. He puts you on the nice list, gets you into a false sense of security, then BAM! You wake up shackled to an assembly line and are forced to make toys for the rest of your life. You thought it was the elves who did that? Naw man, that's just what they want you to think.
  13. I know there's a Santa out there somewhere. He's watching, always watching. Has his own elf NSA, keeping an eye on us. I once caught a broadcast from one of his spies on my cassette player, and now I make sure to do as many good things as possible, so I don't end up an exhibit on glaciers in 10,000 years...
  14. You have me there, all of the Petroglyph games I've played afterwards weren't very good, and kept trying and failing to recapture the C&C magic(I've played 8-bit Armies and Forged Battalion, both were very dull games. FB had some interesting ideas, but it was still very one-dimensional, and the campaign felt tacked on like the devs were going down an "RTS checklist". Same thing with 8-Bit, just a skirmish map with objectives slapped on). You're correct that EaW was their first game, at least according to the Wikipedia page on them.
  15. For me I'd say it's on par with the C&C series, it's a damn good game. Forces of Corruption was great, the Zann Consortium faction had a lot of really interesting features. Although the campaign story was a bit out there and kinda tossed the canon at the time out the window, but that happened at least a bit with the campaigns from the base game, so eh. Still fun.
