Hmmmm no general discussion forum.......
Anyway, RTS games are great, im yet to download this mod.
I have the whole C&C series, and have played a little and own the whole close combat series.
So is this mod dead? i mean i wouldnt know, first time here, but i mean you people could be hard at work doing another release, i wouldnt know.
So, i hope i enjoy this when i download it, and it looks great.

Awww, BU has no pacific mirrors, since JS games went.
Ah well, its only small. Thanks, i'll tell you what i think.
Hmmm, its over a year old, is this even still being developed? is their a community?

edit: i guess nope and nope, i hoped for a botmatch, but you dont have any AI support, and then i hoped for a server and there was none :( :(

Yes, we had a very tiny group of people (10-15 ) who enjoyed this mod, a year ago. Today noone cares, noone plays. So don't waste your time, like I've wasted mine. I'm sorry but unfortunately there is probably noone left who could play it with you. :( Time will tell ...

Dam, i love rts games!
Renegade failed because of EA, and this failed due to lack of players
Seige2004 sucks, i downloaded it, only to be presented with a game to build buildings you have to guess the number which does what you want, the menu has no writing on it.
Oh well, i guess this ends up happening with all mods. Its why AI support i say is essential, because otherwise once online goes, nothing is left.

i know its hard, but i play mods like AirBuccaneers which hardly anyone plays now, with bots when im bored.
I have a total of around 6 or 7 TC mods i can play with AI, and i enjoy them a lot, especially DA2.
EA games sucks and you know it. WoW is good, but a rip off.
A next gen game is ut2007, which you could mod for.

We were thinking of implementing AI but realized that it was impossible to do in the short time frame in order to make it into the MSU contest. Now on the one hand we might have the time for that, but ont the other hand I wonder who will actually play and care for it? According to our coder the single player AI is not that easy to implement though , because everything has to be done in UScript, which is horribly slow in realtime. The ideal solution would be a direct C++ approach, but as we are not full licensees of the unreal engine, we have no access to the wanted approach. One of our aims was to show the potential of the unreal engine, as in turning it completely into something different it wasn't originally developed for, an RTS game. And as you can see we have achieved that aim.

UT2007 sounds interesting, but the game, the engine is still in development. We just have to wait and see what kind of dev tools it will come with. However a direct port to ut2007 is questionable, because of graphics detail mismatch. The current engine is just fine for our purpose, but the major question remains unanswered: Who and how many will actually play this mod?

Just checking to see if there was still a pulse.
