Here be the blog.
Thanks to danpaul88, we can now simulate random weather on a per-map basis! So in desert maps you can have sandstorms, in snow maps you can have blizzards with fog and in britain-based maps you can have lots and lots of rain (but not at the moment).
Eventually we plan to add an element of time on some maps, so for example; a map could start off in the evening and during the course of the game it could turn into night. Pretty cool huh? But yeah, that's still all to be tested.
Here is a video of the weather changing script.
Soviet_Deso recently handed over some assets from the now defunct ROTD (Rise of the Drones) mod for C&C Generals Zero Hour.
These assets include a few animal models and faction logos which are cool, as well as a certain lady of liberty. Take a look below. (The colours on the soviet logo are not accurate because the main logo needs texturing properly. I can get away with the allied one though )
Well, cfehunter re-did the texture on the allied walls and I added some better sandbags to the mix to make this model a ton of a lot better than what it was. Walls are the only thing standing between your base and the hoard of Soviet units (apart from the base defences of course) so make sure they don't take too many hits.
The Allied Battle Fortress is the only unit in the game which can run over these walls.
Here's a pretty picture of the new walls below.
The votes will be counted up soon.
I'm a little down in the dumps right now because of a few things but it's nothing to worry about. Exams are close. I do have a good feeling that I have a chance of scoring some good grades and getting through. My ultimate target is A for Theatre Studies, B for computing and B for Product Design. Lets' see how that goes eh. I went for a game of football with some mates today and got lightly sunburnt. What have they done with England this week? It's actually warm and sunny. Ah well, I can't complain.... Well I can actually, because I dislike the mayfair which is in town at the moment.
cfehunter gave me his old 200GB HDD at the weekend, so I have begun to port things over as well as clone valuable things (i.e. AR work/assets) so that they will be backed up if one HDD fails. Cool huh?
cfehunter has also finished GTAIV. Nice one!
dtrngd is working on Dune Patrol, but he has been taking photographs of a cool park which he is going to attempt to turn into a map.
danpaul88 has been fixing up the level edit build and acquiring some proper bases for the veterancy values for each weapon.
Ha Cha Cha!
