Dtrngd while modeling our really cool toxin grenade decided to have a little fun and made a Toxin Drink cup :laugh2:

I also mentioned that Tiberian Sun Reborn will have a unique promotion system. Now as some of you may know, Apocalypse Rising already has a promotion system, but we’ve decided to make ours a little different. The idea behind ours is when you get the first promotion to Veteran [][], you’ll be given an armor upgrade or resistance to an effect like splash damage, fire, poison, etc. When you get the second promotion to Elite *, you’ll get a weapon upgrade or a special ability like faster reloads, better ammo, or health regen. This list is still being played with but here’s an example:

 

Riot Trooper

1st promotion - Poison Resistant

2nd Promotion - Incendiary Ammo

 

We're also thinking about implementing a rank retention system. If you’ve earned a rank, there may be a way to retain that ranking by spending a little extra cash. This will reset each round, of course.

 

One_Winged_Angel was awesome enough to model the rank icons that will pop up as you are promoted for us:

As for the rest of the team:

 

Darkangel is modeling up an awesome Nod tech center.

 

Renardin is a little under the weather, but he’s texturing the engineer briefcases and the new toxin trooper for us.

 

Spice is working away at the GDI service depot you all saw in last week’s blog.

 

Guy with a Wrench is redoing a bunch of the civilian buildings.

 

Teamwolf has been tracking down old assets and maps for us to fix up.

 

And lastly, I've been planning out our first build, tracking down assets, re doing tons of sounds and all around handling management after the big move.

Pretty sweet looking weapons. I really like the look of the AA rocket launcher.

Noticing that some infantry only have one weapon. Does that mean they will have infinite ammo?

Infinite ammo is going to most primary weapons, things like EMP Mines, Toxin Grenades, and C4s will be limited.

I'm not so sure about the Medic and the Hijacker having uzis. Other than that, it's great to see so many things back. Kinda nostalgic. Maybe the Cyborg's chain gun will finally be useful.

 

Also, I remember the old team had some old idea of making the Kerubim/Confessor's weapon into a chargeable laser, kind like a mini Obelisk.

 

And one last thing. Are you planning on naming the weapons? Like the plasma gun was the Burazazu, or similar?

Looks like some Nod infantry might be a little too multi-purpose, but I like the variety of the weapons.

 

For example, why does the cyborg need a rocket launcher? :huh:

The promotion system is a great idea, I can't wait to see that implemented ingame, it would certainly add a new twist to Reborn's gameplay.

Medics and Hijackers are going to need some sort of side arm. And a standard pistol seems a little bit weak for a field unit, so I think the best in between is the now un-used Uzis. As for the charge up and re-naming of the Confessor's Rifle both might happen. The charge up might would be a really cool Secondary fire, with a longer reload.

 

Looks like some Nod infantry might be a little too multi-purpose, but I like the variety of the weapons.

We're still working on details, but yes I think giving these units a multipurpose is a good way to make no unit is over shadowed

For example, why does the cyborg need a rocket launcher? :huh:

I think to make a Cyborg a major threat like he was in TS/FS then yes he should be giving both an Anti-Unit and Anti-Vehicle weapon. But who's to say it might be something that gets unlocked a Elite Status ;)

Actually, it should be a grenade launcher or mini HE/AP cannon, since that's what the Cyborg had in renders and cutscenes:

There is no proof that is grenade launcher, instead of a small rocket launcher. Even in the videos it is un-clear, and most likely it will be a Rocket launcher

-Near-instant projectile travel (I know that rockets go very fast, too, but in C&C cutscenes, rockets tend to travel MUCH slower than other projectiles.)

-No exhaust-trail behind the projectile

-"Pop!" sound upon firing, instead of a more rocket-like sound

I'd view it as an acceptable break from canon ice. Giving cyborgs a secondary anti infantry weapon would be kind of redundant.

For the last time ICE there is no proof of it being either. With your logic it could still be either one. I could claim that the damage done by the blast is too big to be a grenade. Again ICE there is no proof from such an unclear video. Also in that video that one light infantry unit took out both Cyborgs in two shots, that couldn't happen in TS, should because I saw it in this video should I make that happen in Reborn? ..NO

Hmm, didn't the technician have a repair gun, while the engineer had the slightly more powerful repair wrist? Or is that one of your changes?

 

I like the roster though.

Valid points, but the weapon itself even looks more like a cannon of some sort rather than a rocket launcher. Anyway, I'll stop arguing about it.

 

BTW, the Hijacker's recently-acquired "Tech 9 Uzi" still has the GDI logo. It might be best to remove that. :emot-v:

You COULD give him an AK-47.... ported from APB!

 

 

Other then that, I think it looks fine. Wait a minute, that gives me an idea....

With that logic...I could just give him a NOD light rifle and that is not what I'm looking to do. I want him to have something less powerful then a Rifle and more powerful then a Pistol. So the Uzi works. The Uzi texture will probably be fixed or covered in the end.

It's a Gatling gun not a minigun ;o.

If it has a motor, it is a chaingun, if it is recoil, a minigun, if it is hand cranked, it is Gattling.

I was kind of kidding on that statement, although, I would like to try something on Ridge War later on...

It would be cool if you could pull a Battlefield with medics and have them be able to deploy med-packs with stationary area-of-effect healing. Same thing with ammunition for some other unit. I can't say I'm all to happy with most units getting infinite ammo (that's by far the worst aspect of APB imo... and now Reborn) but I'll trust your judgment on it. :D

Meh, it would be fun to try. Whats the worst that could happen? Snipers were removed, so there is no reason for limited ammo anyway.
