#916196 Updates #21

Posted by VectorIV on 11 March 2013 - 10:31 AM in Zero Hour Enhanced News

Risen from the previous 2 months of real life; I finally have returned to business again, yay! With good news, of course; I've already been accepted into a university which spares me from a lot of work that could've emerged. That's not important now, let's get into the updates.
 

Logo_2.png
This is NATO's logo I made 5 minutes ago


Why has USA been changed to NATO? Well, that's according to the mod's storyline in the campaign; shorten as followed: The plots after PLA seized control back from the GLA in most parts of Europe. Peace lasted not long before another Cold War broke out between USA and China. A newly formed Chinese Socialist-party was brought into the ruling of the country with a promise of leading the country into a greater age. With the escalation, NATO assembled once again to deal with the newly emerged threat.

Something like that lol.
 

1362917753AVBradley.jpg

This is NATO "Bradley" IFV. This is just another typical Bradley IFV, nothing specific about it. And here is Wikipedia; manufactured by BAE Systems Land and Armaments, formerly United Defense. It was named after U.S. General Omar Bradley.

Side: NATO
Capacity: 5 men
Weapon: 25 mm M242, TOW Missile Launcher, Machine Gun
Armour: Meduim Plate
Speed: Fast
Upgrade: Drones, Composite Armour, Advanced Training, TOW Missile Launcher
 

1362928864AVStreak.jpg

This is NATO "Stormer" APC. An support vehicle, used for various strategies depending on the situation and the decision of the commander to utilized it.

Planned features are as followed:
### This doesn't mean it will include every options ###
-Normal configuration, armed with Starstreak HVM
-Armed with 25 mm cannon
-Engineering configuration
-Ambulance configuration
-Mine layering configuration
-Armed 81 mm or 120 mm mortar
-Drone controlling configuration

Side: NATO
Capacity: 6 men

Upgrade: Drones, Composite Armour, Advanced Training
 

1362917753NVAdvECM.jpg


This is PLA Adv. ECM Tank. An "Electronic Counter Measures Tank", has the role of supporting unit in the PLA forces, capable of jamming small missiles and disabling enemy vehicles.

The differences between this Adv. version and the normal one, are that this Adv. version has a wider range of missile jamming and a longer range of vehicle disability.

Side: PLA Tank General
Weapon: Electronic Counter-Measures
Armour: Meduim Plate
Speed: Medium

Well, the last good news would be about how I've done these; with a help from TheHunter649, I'm able to create my own models and skins from now. Big thanks to him! Cheers :D

Be aware that these are not entirely done yet, some are merely a completed unit. Things might change as the time flies but feel free to suggest or advice.

Thank you for reading if you actually have read the entire thing.




#916195 Updates #20

Posted by VectorIV on 11 March 2013 - 10:29 AM in Zero Hour Enhanced News

The first update of 2013 and might be the last as well for the moment as for I'm not sure whether I'll have the time or not. But, here are those which I'd like to show you guys.
 

AVHumveeRender.jpg


This is USA Humvee. Well, what's the fucking difference from the original one? The answer is this one is just a variation built of a normal Humvee. The laser version will also be available as well, you can't see it since I haven't done it. Are there be more variations to come? I have no clue. That depends on my enthusiasm.

Side: USA
Capacity: 3 men
Weapon: Machine Gun, TOW Missile Launcher
Armour: Standard Humvee Plate
Speed: Fast
Upgrade: Drones, Composite Armour, Advanced Training, TOW Missile Launcher
 

AVPaladinRender.jpg


This is USA Paladin Howitzer. Well, in the last Paladin Tank related update, it was replaced by Abrams Tank so your argument is invalid. Long story short, this is a self-propelled howitzer edited from vanilla Paladin.

Side: Either General Granger or General Alexander
Clip: 4 Rounds
Weapon: 155 mm Howitzer
Armour: Medium Plate
Speed: Medium
Upgrade: Drones, Composite Armour, Advanced Training
 

AVTitanRender.jpg


This is USA "Titan" Mk.I Prototype Tank. A experimental heavy tank, produced for heavy fire power and heavy defensive position, is use to shake-down the uproar of the new PLA forces. There are also EMP Missiles variation and Railgun variation for General Alexander and General Townes.

Side: USA
Clip: 8 Anti-tank Missiles
Size: Around Emperor Tank (Estimated)
Weapon: Unique Cannon, Anti-tank Missiles Pot, Machine Gun
Armour: Heavy Plate
Speed: Slow
Upgrade: Drones, Composite Armour, Advanced Training, Mine Clearing
#Note: I cannot guarantee that you will see this unit in Skirmish mode. Also, this applies to some new units as well
 

LsrComancheRender.jpg


This is USA Laser Comanche. Nothing specific here, this is just a rebuild to replace the one in the latest release.

Side: General Townes
Weapon: Vulcan, Double-Laser Battery
Armour: Standard Comanche Plate
Speed: Fast
Upgrade: Advanced Training, Countermeasures



NVMSweeperRender.jpg


This is USA Upgradable Minesweeper. Only specific tanks could be upgraded with this thing due to balancing and game engine limitation.

Function: Sweep mines, prevent the owner from mine damages
#Note: I cannot guarantee that you will see this thing in Skirmish mode.



FlagxRender.jpgFlagRender.jpg


The difference between these two variations would be health and damage resistance since it can be damaged from bombs and shit. As for the flags, there are only a few things I could implement on them. As the followings are the possible function of them flags:
-Area Revealer
-Area-Healing Zone
-Auto Supply Generating Zone
-Reduce Cost of Units, Buildings, etc.
And yes, I welcome suggests other than these and flag conquest if it's possible to be done. Feel free.

Be aware that these are not entirely done yet, some are merely a completed unit. Things might change as the time flies but feel free to suggest or advice.

Thank you for reading if you actually have read the entire thing. It's very tiring to write stuff D:

Stay tune for more updates in the future, in this case is the new garrison penetration system, I'll upload the video once it's completed, and see you later.




#905318 Updates #19

Posted by VectorIV on 17 November 2012 - 11:38 AM in Zero Hour Enhanced News

After being gone for like two months or so, I've actually got a free time to do renders and stuff for this project. I did what I could for the meantime and it's not much.

Right now, I already have list of "what to do" written down so I should know what I'll be doing. However, the future updates might not be as frequent as before since I'm still bound to the university stuff. So basically, I've done with the prequel test stuff but I still don't know if I've actually made it or not until the end of December this year. If I've made it, I'll be able to work on the mod in full capacity as before. So, pray me for succeeding in entering a university, I'll appreciate it a lot.

Now, enough of that. Let's get to the main stream.

#895742 Updates #18

Posted by VectorIV on 03 August 2012 - 02:41 PM in Zero Hour Enhanced News

Well, one month has passed and this is kind of the end of my holiday duration. So, here is the deal, first of all, I decided that there won't be a public beta but it's to be released once it's done. Now, things change; I've decided to release a public beta. Good news enough?

Posted Image

Why exactly? Because I have no idea when I'm going to have the time to touch this project again, with the incoming university stuff, other projects stuff and perhaps "national service, perhaps. I'll cut the talk here.

Here's a quick detail of the beta:

1. Now we've got a working mod launcher, fully compatible with other mods. This is still a beta built version so there might be some bugs or glitches. Take a quick preview at our latest built.


Posted ImagePosted Image

As you can see, you can set your screen resolution here as well as full screen or windowed mode. Also, bloom, reflection, depth of field, props and screen definition options are now available. The mod's world builder is yet also available for usage for a mapper or a modder.

2. Sum of the mainly old updates such as:
-3D visual light rays with animation in game as if it's from C&C3.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6udv1ZN07WY&feature=plcp

-Dynamic locomotion surface effects depending on what type of terrain your units are which includes water, dirt, snow for example.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFWGkM7S6Bs&feature=plcp

-Visual sandstorm and fog are now a issue in your battles while it's snowing, storming or when you're high on a mountain.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vey9Z2n3E6M&feature=plcp

-Projectile bullet system is now implemented, depending on the weapon, each has its own accuracy and speed.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMyEKuyQIEY&feature=plcp

-Lastly, the new flame thrower and incendiary weapon system, now they will leave a fire field to burn your opposing targets to the death.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01ZOBLh3v6Y&feature=plcp

There is also the crush-able hulks system but I haven't make any out of it. So yes, see it for yourself in game.

3. New units as following:
USA - Abrams, Adv. Crusader, Laser Paladin, Black Hawk, Greyhound, Variety Avengers, MRLS
PLA - Iron Dragon, J-20, Variety Dragon Tanks, Support Crawler, Storm Rockets Launcher, Typhoon Rockets Launcher, Howitzer-master, Variety Overlords, Variety Gattlings
GLA - Supply Bike, Radar Truck, Cobra, Elite Quad, Heavy Scud Launcher, Variety Marauders, Katyusha


Posted ImagePosted Image


Variety Avengers? Well, not so vary if you ask me. Now, there are only the rocket one and the laser one availble.

J-20? This replaced Boss General's Mig, armed with 4 napalm missiles, capable on creating a quicker firestorm.

Variety Dragon Tanks? Now, there are Jiaolong Dragon as the picture above for Tank General, Raging Dragon for Infantry General and the normal one for vanilla China and Boss General. Nuke General? Forgot him, I do not, his is special because he don't use Dragon Tank anymore since he has his new toy, the Devastator.


Posted ImagePosted Image


Variety Overlords? Now, there are Nuke version of the Overlord, the good old emperor and the normal one available.

Variety Gattlings? Oh, each sub faction has its own style except Nuke General, for now. You mean the gattling canon or the gattling tank? I mean both.

What about GLA? They don't have many new units but they do have the Katyusha and the Elite Quad which are both for Prince Kassad. The new units will be featured in a later version.


Posted ImagePosted Image


You may ask, what about the other units you promised? The answer is that they'll be featured in the patch of this beta. Why? Because I ran out of time. The details of the "new" units will be revealed soon after I got the time to work on them.

4. A new feature just have been implemented, weapon against garrison which cause damage to who ever nears the building. This applied to vanilla Toxin and Flame weapons, see the screenies.


Posted ImagePosted Image


5. What else you should know about this beta? There are so many that I'm starting to lack the strength to write any further. Mi(a)nor bugs which haven't been solved yet such? AI stupidity, enemy infantry running towards a hulk and enter it, lag-ness, etc.

Posted Image

Also, the voices, sounds, cameos and descriptions are quite done yet. Even so, there will be errors and mismatch and stuff going on such units using the same voice, crappy cameos and a funny description and so on.

Posted Image

Nope, not going to write anymore. The day of release should be within a day or two or this week or two more weeks. If there is no emergency issues, you'll get the beta in no time.

If you need more details or have any questions, either ask me or wait for the readme, packing with the beta.

#883162 Updates #16

Posted by VectorIV on 13 April 2012 - 02:51 PM in Zero Hour Enhanced News

Updates as the following:
-GLA Katyusha
-PLA Battle-master Howtizer
-PLA Storm Launcher
-PLA Devastator
-Lazer Army Apperance
-"What should I called this?"
-Bridge Shadow WIP

Posted Image

Explanation: Some meshes are made by Anus-Panda. Some are as you as know, moddingrocks's CCU. Available only for Kassad aka Stealth General.
It serves in role as heavy artillery support like Scud Launcher, only its firing power is lesser but far more missiles to spare. Its missiles when explode, leaving small fire field to do extra damage against most units. In total, more chance to hit several targets in larger area, longer firing range and less dangerous when exploded.
Or in shorter term, nearly as same as PLA Typhoon Launcher.

Posted Image

Explanation: Inspired by Art of War's one. Noted that this model isn't from Act of War, if it is, I'd have told you because I'm such a bad liar. Available only for Kwai aka Tank General.
It serves in role as medium artillery support like Inferno Cannon, only its shells when explode, not leaving any small fire fields. Its chassis is based on vanilla battle-master, protecting it from the amount of damage that Inferno Cannon receives. Also, frontal machine gun to defend itself against enemy infantries.

Posted Image

Explanation: It's Fritz's model. Armed with 18 missile barrels.
It serves in role as medium artillery support, unlike Typhoon Launcher its firing power is lesser but far more missiles to spare. Its missiles when explode, leaving small fire field to do extra damage against most units. In total, more chance to hit several targets in larger area, longer firing range and less dangerous when exploded.

Posted Image

Explanation: It's Fritz's model. Armed with 2 devastating barrels.
I don't know how this thing serves in other mods but here, it serves as Nuke General's "Dragon Tank" or literally, infantry-structure terminator. Its chassis provides additional armour protection and its shell, when exploded, creating a field of radiation and explosion damage. However, when it's die, it'll create a reasonable nuclear explosion and leave a medium size radiation field.

Posted Image

Inspired by GenX and C&C3. If you don't know what I'm talking about then it would be the red-laser flare on the firing barrel, the old red-wingtips and laser sight for Rangers and Pathfinders.

Posted Image

Just showing Katyusha, Panzerthum and Tank Destroyer models (Upgraded-Light Tank). Not everything you see here is done yet.
Katyusha extra info: The rockets also disappeared when fired but it's quite hard to see the procession because of the smokes.
Panzerthum info: Available only for Tank General aka Kwai. Just like normal bunker only it has a battle-master turret on top of it.
Tank Destroyer info: Upgraded turret on PLA Light Tank, making its armour penetration a lot higher but its armour is the size as before upgrading.

Posted Image

"Work in Progress". This means it's not done yet.
