Hello, dear Contra fans and Happy Easter to those who celebrate it today! It is ThePredatorBG this time.
 
As said before, Cybernetic general is under revision. This means changing and/or adding new units.
 
One new unit for Cybernetic general is Cyber Dog, which is anti-personnel.
 
Cyber Dog is fully mechanical, and produced in Barracks. It is very fast, and because of this, is mostly used as infantry hunter. With its sharp iron teeth, it rips enemy infantry into pieces with one bite. You can use it in early game to block tech structures from being captured by your enemy. It is very effective vs. GLA generals. Due to its mechanical body, machine guns cannot harm it seriously. But RPGs and all other armor-piercing weapons can kill it almost instantly. Since it is a pure robot, it is vulnerable to ECM. Can be upgraded with Exoskeletons and Advanced Data Transmission upgrades.

For the last few days, I've been busy with preparing some overview of what I've been working on lately. And I have them in video format.
 
 
Sequoia trees have a gameplay role. Destroying one sequoia tree will cause it to fall down and create a domino effect. The end result is pretty obvious - the middle area of the map is completely swept. Remember that you can always achieve a comeback when the enemy has middle control by destroying the trees.
 
 
 
The purpose of this video is to show that capturable trains are possible in multiplayer. Capturing the train engine transfers the entire train to that player. After being owned by a player, it starts following the railroad path, goes out of the map borders and comes back again until it's destroyed. The map is still in progress.
 
 
 
This is the map intro of a new challenger, USA Boss, who will be available in later versions of Contra. Also, an FPS Control button was added to all Challenge maps. Each click changes the game speed in real time. You may have seen this button in older versions, but this time it works!
 
 
We have a new member in the team - Josh Zemlinsky. He is helping with the creation of new maps, currently for Campaign. Thanks, Josh!
 
Yes, you read it right - Campaign. I want to remind you that our Campaign is still in progress and it will come out one day. I could have shown something in this update, but... I don't want to spoil it. You are free to speculate.
 
In addition, we are recruiting experienced mapmakers. This means you need to have good world building and scripting knowledge. Mapmaking background is a big plus! If you fulfill the requirements and are willing to help, contact me by PM. The more people we are, the faster we will complete and release Challenge and Campaign content!

Yes, however, he was added for testing. It's not decided what abilities he will have. We'll get to him later.

Not planned.

Cyber Dog is the only thing we have shown in this update, but we are working on new units and models too. When all the new planned content is done for one general, we will move on to the next general. The time for China and GLA content will come after USA.

 

I attach pictures from external sources by clicking on the Image icon in the toolbar and adding the URL.
