Not much to show you guys this week I'm afraid; but there are a few goodies.

Soviet Walls


Occult has been texturing the Soviet Walls, using some of TheBeerinator's textures to keep continuity in the visuals. These walls will be appearing ingame soon!

Solid!


Soviet Conscript


I've just about completed the basic shape of the conscript's head and will be moving in to polish it up sometimes this weekend. He's looking pretty mean now, with plenty of bits left to do.

Mommy?


New Menu Strings


When I'm not working on the conscript, I like to work on the string tables. This week, I've been working on better menu text for the options menu. I find these new strings a lot more descriptive than the old renegade ones.

Just take a look, it's pretty self-explanatory.

Also, here's a nice picture of the carpet that every Soviet wants to own.

You got the Chronominer Teleport working?
and Questions:
1. If you are a Player Chronominer, how do you teleport?
2.Is the Ore "Mineable"? (does it go away after you mine it?)
3. How does Veteran and Elite Units work? Say if I had a SEAL in a Prism tank and I destroy the enemy War Factory and barracks, and I become a Veterian, and my Prism tank is Destroyed/Sold/I got out of it, does my SEAL become veteran too? and if someone Steals my prism tank, will it still be veteran? and if I buy a NEW Prism tank, will it be veteran? BASICALLY: Is Veteran carried by Vehicle or Infantry Character, or both?

Thank you, and hope that you understand all that, and that Wallywood dosen't want to kill me again!

Yeah, we got it working.

You click to chronoshift.

It doesn't go away.

Vehicles and infantry have separate veterancy, so if you are a conscript in a rhino tank and you jump out after killing lots of grizzly tanks, the conscript won't be promoted. However, if you lose your vechicle and run back to base, your vehicle veterancy will stay. So if you get in another Rhino tank after yours has been destroyed, your veterancy won't change. It give you an incentive to stay alive.
