We all would. However, there is a new GDI tank already modeled/developed and is able to detect stealth set to premiere later on in the year after testing. It might be the leopard 2...

I for one vote for the Tiger 1 / 2 as it's an awesome tank. However, this mod is almost entirely one man who is quite busy with life. The fact we're here is quite amazing in my opinion and these things take time. Kaskins/dblaney have developed all these maps (And recently vile facility) , vehicles, adjustments/balances and such like ships. So it's quite alot to do.

The good news however, is there is a new drone R/C unit about to be input in the game for scouting and to drive around (it's awesome). A new patch was just put out. Also if you're looking for some German WW2 Tankage.. the O-13 something from the forgotten war factory is actually the Hetzer Tank irl.

Nod also has a bunch of WW2 Tanks. They are however so ineffective late game (or after 5 minutes honestly) that modeling more is just a gimmick if anything. The gun on a Tiger (88mm) is pathetic compared with anything this game has. In addition, the engine is slow, and it's armor I don't think was ever designed to stand up to dual 120mm Railguns. To model a unit which almost sees no use in reality besides "wow, this is cool!" then *Novelty worn off. Whatever* is not as good of a usage of time than making actual new units/weapons and models for the game that greatly can affect gameplay.

This would be a great Nod-Counterpart to the Tortoise :biggrin:

Jagdtiger

Spoiler

"Jagdtiger" (="hunting Tiger"), tank-destroyer version of the Tiger II, embedding a 128mm Pak44 into 250mm frontal armor

So, now stealth vehicles will be useless, while GDI having immortal field of Aegis?(

Sometimes Aegis field just making bad situation for GDI. But in right hands it can make GDI base almost unrushable.

Of course a lot of testing will be required for any new unit and we'll see how gameplay is affected. However there are no plans to make this stealth detecting tank a Challenger II or something that is stupid hard to kill. Furthermore, being this tank will more than likely have Nod focusing all their fire on you.

 

Aegis Field shield gen thingy. It's very useful when used properly. However, it has to also be taken into account that Nod can just stack up while said shield is turned on. Which typically happens anyways.

You could always just go hard and be really OP yourself.

I want a Custom Tank added to Interim Apex.

If you (or anyone else) would like to see a custom tank in this game. You can always make the model yourself, sound settings, textures, objects.ddb associated with it then test it and give it to Kaskins when you feel it's complete. There are currently a billion things he's trying to do on his own in terms of balance and new things. So making a whole new model by himself whilst balancing work isn't exactly easy. Doing it yourself though will grant a greater chance of it happening.

W3D viewer, 3D Max and a load of other shit. You can find more in the W3D tutorials. As far as actually doing a lot of it, you may have to ask for help at someone else as I’ve never actually modeled anything in W3D. It takes a while to learn.. but if you can. You can create anything you want and have a valuable skill.

how do i put it in threve

Please stop commenting on this topic about custom sounds. Use the *Message Feature* located right next to the users (Me.. Threve) Profile to send messages to me or anyone else from now on.

As i've said before in the message I sent you, 

"Put this into your TTFS Folder for IA.

ThisPC > LocalDisk C: > Program Files (x86) > W3DHub > Games > ia release > IAFiles > InterimApex > ttfs > files"

 

The words above mean where you're at in your computer. So when you right click on the folder icon and click "File explorer"... notice how on the top of the window it says "This PC" ? Just navigate the links until you get to where i'm telling you. You were able to extract this sound somehow from Halo and upload it here... I'm almost positive you got this man. You can do it.

SideNote: If you do want to make a tank for the Forgotten War Factory, keep this in mind: None of the tanks are Amphibious and thusly creating an amphibious tank would definitely earn my vote.

Those might be interesting. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing a KV-2 added to the Forgotten War Factory arsenal, just for pure meme factor without being totally useless.

A KV-2 with HE rounds (AP as alternate fire?) would be quite nice yeah. Long reload, not really accurate but a big punch. Would give another reason to go for the forgotten War Factory when it is around.

Well, i found THIS!

The Soviet flame long range tank object 483!

ob483a.thumb.jpg.5c790ce73043921271345c29e0d1d48c.jpg

and some info http://tankmuseum.ru/ob483/

I think it's just need to be in game. It's own base - T-54, so almost half "meshes"(i wonder) already exist.

Maybe some disraptor type Nod fraction vehicle...

Would be the Nod version of GDI Zippo
