I have thought hard and a lot-and it seems that there is still fresh scope for new stuff to make it's way into Mental Omega.Here,in this thread,we'll discuss exactly that-whether it be new units,or support powers or buildings.Then,if it seems worthy enough,we'll take the discussions to the next level.

How about making some old RA1 units and implementing them into the mod at some point later on down the road? Archtype has really good of what RA1 buildings should look like.

Hmm....doesn't sound bad,at least in theory.But if you have any fresh ideas regarding stuff,you can put them up.

Has anyone here thought about putting up some World War 1 stuff since it happened before Einstein messed with the timeline?

Here's an idea for a new HQ siege unit.(Forgive me if the spoiler seems large,it's actually a post in itself).

This one concerns a new stealth detector for the Foehn Revolt.

Stealth is one of the very few advantages Epsilon has over Foehn... let's not take it away completely. Besides that, 2 dedicated stealth detectors, this and the SODAR would be redundant. If there is really such a horrendous need for stealth detection, I'd just slap some sensors on the Huntress.

Well,I did write in the description that it could be a companion stealth detector-that's not really necessary.However,I'm not depriving Epsilon of it's stealth.I know it is one of it's main pros against Foehn,just as stealth helps Nod against GDI.

I do object to making Huntresses stealth detectors.That would push them to T3 and break the little balance present in an already OP faction.

Looking at list of what to add, I'd say the Russian faction don't have a unique infantry unit like the Chinese or Latin Confederation. How about a something like an improved/better version of a Conscript? Something like this:

 

Red Guard

$80

Has increased range and damage compared to the Conscript with it's AKM rifle. It's HP is slightly better but not much.

 

Also, I guess this has been thrown around a lot by some community members but I find the Russians not having a heavy T3 tank compared to the Chinese a little out of place? I would suggest giving them the Apocalypse tank back, not the 3.0 version but 2.0 as while it was powerful it could still be overwhelmed easily. Plus the 2.0 version fitted the aesthetic of the real life IS-2 heavy tank from world war 2 with a mammoth tank makeover. If there needs to be a limitation to it for balancing reasons how about requiring the War Factory, Palace and Industrial Plant?

 

The one in 3.0 could still be the secret stolen tech one but labelled as a Prototype? 

 

I'm gonna look for other things to suggest but as always these kinds of things can be shot down by the MO team due to balancing, time constraints or development time required for them. Either way I'm loving the game and appreciate mods like this that keep C&C alive!

As much as I'd love to see subfactions becoming near-100% customized, it's been discussed before that subfaction-specific tier 1 infantry will never be a thing. If we REALLY need a unique infantry for Russia, I'd vouch for an upgraded, RA3esque Tesla Trooper.

Russian is the one faction that needs no buff. Hasn't anyone realized just how easy it already is to play as Russia?

Well from what I wrote I guess I'm suggesting a buff to Russia but I was going in the direction of just adding a new unit.

 

The RA3 style Tesla Trooper would be cool but what about a Spetsnaz unit? I think in 1.2 it had them but they were pretty much a Seal clone? If for uniqueness it has an assault rifle/grenade launcher similar to the Chinese cyborgs but not as powerful, they can swim and for attacking buildings they call in airstrikes like Boris/Morelez but like they were in OG YR game and not one hit kills and needs to be closer unlike Morelez. Could play around in the lore that Morelez was trained by Spetsnaz that's why their similar somewhat.

 

Also in matches/skirmish is it possible to have an option for basic superweapons only like Iron Curtain or Chronosphere? If it's not a pain to code?

...nah, airstrikes for a regular infantry sounds like either a hassle or OP, and they sounded like they have roles that other infantries cover already. Moreover, you made them sounded like a clone of Morales/Cyborg Vanguard

And yes, Russia doesn't need buff, let alone a new unit

Here is an idea for a new stolen tech unit for Foehn,obtained from Epsilon.
