New TS_Field & TS_Crossroads Civilian Building

 

 

Fabian has been very busy at work on a completely new version of TS_Field, this version has a nice redesign that is much more fitting with the Tiberian Sun feel.

He has also been working on one of the missing buildings from TS_Crossroads, this one belongs on the same side of the road in the middle as the current civilian building.

LevelEdit & Buildings

 

 

We are working on a much more updated LevelEdit with a large prop library along with a new set of proxy buildings for 3DS Max. These should be with by the new years, along with a new blog, patch and hopefully some map updates!

 

If you are working on any fan maps and want to show them off, these tools are really worth the wait. But before then, why not show us what you are working on here!

 

Reborn Community News

 

One_Winged_Angel recently created a new skin for our BHP forums, a Reborn Theme. This new theme is created with the very old design in mind along with the older Reborn forum skin, it really does look amazing!

 

To select this new skin (if you haven't already) just go to the bottom of the page, click on "Change Theme" and select Reborn!

 

Xan_Kriegor has been working on a Russian fan site for the last few months in an amazing effort to spread the word about TS:R! Xan has been trying to keep it up to date with blogs and other Reborn/C&C news when he can. If you can read Russian or have Russian friends, direct them to this link and be sure to follow it!

 

Cover the Planet in Snow!

 

 

That's it for this Christmas update, be sure to keep on following us here, on Facebook, Twitter, and IndieDB.

On a closer inspection it appears there's no booze left, all the shelves are empty :saddowns:

 

Oh well it was probably paint thinner and tiberium anyway.

Question on my part...

 

Will infantry inside vehicles gain veterancy, and is there any kind of shared veterancy or is it on a per kill basis?

 

For example, if I shoot somebody in the face whilst in a Titan, will I be gaining veterancy for it, or is it purely for actions done as the infantry itself?

 

 

 

Disk Thrower
Veteran: +25 to health and armour.
Elite: Incendiary anti-infantry disk (more damage, DoT).

 

 

*Grins*

 

Merry Christmas folks! Look forward to trying out the new patch, good work fellas. ^.^

Veterancy points are awarded purely based on damage, you can earn points and promotions even if the thing you're shooting runs away and heals itself. The actual kill counts for nothing in the vetetancy system.

 

You earn vehicle veterancy whilst driving a vehicle, but currently these are useless as vehicles cannot be promoted yet. This will come in a future patch.

The new TS_Field looks promissing. This veterancy system gives this game some more depth. Hope to see vehicle veterancy soon. A superweapon system and the juggernaut would round this mod up.

 

Is it a huge effort to implement a little progress bar for veterancy?

How about the Reborn veterancy icons shown in one of the blogs? Do those just need to be rigged up or something before they can be put in-game?

Someone needs to actually find them and make sure they're exported properly... there is a specific x,y,z offset for the infantry one for instance. I have no idea where those files are at the moment, hence why I used the AR ones.
