Welcome to this week's blog. I have drunk a sufficient amount of tea, so now I can write this.

 

Enjoy.

 

<h3>Tesla Reactor</h3>

The Tesla Reactor interior is finished in terms of modelling. All we need now are some Soviet Purchase Terminals to litter around the place.

 

dtrngd has been working on this and has made a pretty good job. There will be two minor weakpoints in the Tesla Reactor. Two minor generators and the main Reactor Core. If both small generators are destroyed, the power will be shut off until they are repaired. These minor weakpoints aren't too tough compared to the main weakpoint which requires a lot of punishment before it goes; taking the rest of the structure with it.

 

Anyway, I'll let the pictures do the talking.

<h3>War Miner</h3>

I've been remaking the War Miner, since our old model was way off in terms of accuracy. Also, since we don't want our miners to clip through infantry, I'll be working on a travelling mode for War Miner next. That's right, the Miners will probably travel with their scoops up so they don't get stuck on hills and such. This is an easy fix for the Chrono Miner, since it's scoop is designed to move, but the War Miner's scoop is static. This means that I'm going to have to get a little creative with the animation, but it shouldn't be anything too drastic.

 

Anyway, check out the new War Miner below!

I'll be finishing this model off in the next week or so, then I'm going to finish the Grizzly Tank and IFV off.

 

<h3>Dug up from the archives...</h3>

I was looking around my computer today, when I stumbled upon my archive of old Apocalypse Rising videos. These were made ages ago, by danpaul88, to demonstrate certain scripts. This particular video demonstrates how the Chrono Legionnaire's gun is able to erase infantry and hold them on the spot in "stasis".

 

Check it out.

very very cool ....but thats going to suck being stuck in place for that long

It's not the actual time it takes to erase someone. That video is just a proof of concept. Proof that we can do it.

at first people complain that they got stuck and it is boring (while they call reinforcemens to help)

*decreased time* they say "lolz too fast not like in ra2!"

I examined the video with the Chrono Legionnaire. I can see both sides; however, since it's just proof of concept, I won't divulge into the subject.

 

Hopefully, it won't be a huge problem with some people say it's too fast, and other complain it takes to long so it's worthless. That unit I can see as being extremely difficult to find a balance between not being too cheap but effective enough to use. Good luck with that.
