Here is my idea for a Superunit

Assault General: Salvage King Tank

At the end of WW2 the Germans had a ÜberTank Program called “Maus”. This tank was twice as big as a M1Abrams but only two existing Tanks were finished at the end of the War. The Assault General could have improved this design for his own purpose.
It’s armed with one big 140mm long range Cannon and an co axial 80mm Cannon (the SA-80 Gun could be used there) and I suggest to give it several optional Upgrades with stolen Technology aslike the Overlord has them, like: Quad Cannon, Avenger Laser with Laser defense, an Artillery Option (Firebase, Inferno, Nuke, Tomahawk,…), Propaganda Tower, Radar and a Bunker.
As Salvage Upgrade I’d suggest sponson Gun Towers on both sides of the Tank. A Toxin Sprayer would do good for example. And as a second Upgrade thiker Armour or bigger guns.
Here’s a picture of the Maus if you don’t know how it looks:

Very good points by the way! I agree with the blood thing, makes this game more retro...Sounds too ;)
Creator maybe you should include more new super weapons too (just IMHO) other than the Tomahawk Storm and the ICBM (which by the way are very cool)

No i disagree, in fact, i find it easy! (lol rhymes) Build tons of Nuke Hunters and Overlords and line base with Nuke Cannons and Nuke Helixes with MANY Nuke detonators upgraded. The Nuke General's Nuke Silo practically kills anything (and i mean anything) on the map within its radius! :p  ;)  :grin:

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


hhmm, ill give that a try its hard when you only get 1000 to start off with! his nuke is sweet, original and just damn powerful!

List of Changes i hope can happen:
Flame General should be: Napalm/ECM General (ECM Good anti-tank qualities in disabling tanks)
Thus, he should have Magnetic Pulse from Tanks General
Have White Napalm upgrade which increases flame weapons by 50% and gives it a blue white look
ECM emitter shields upgrade for aircraft
ECM Turret add-on for Helixes and Immolators and Troop Crawler
ECM Tanks should have a wider radius of missle/rocket jamming
Dragon Tanks should be more heavily armored for this General

Air Force General proposals:
Laser planes lasers should destroy lasers with one shot instead of 2.
Counter measures should work better for this General (75% confuses missiles and rockets)
ALL Generals Counter measures should look like flares/ better graphics for counter measures
Should have Advanced Air Field (store 4 planes and is bigger than normal airfield, 2 times the size of normal airfield) for bigger aircraft like the Hercules Transport instead of normal airfield.
Make the Hercules more expensive and BIGGER
Super Unit should be the A-10 Thunderbolt (Heavy armor and good anti-tank/ infantry qualities ($3000 each) and built at Advanced Air Field
All Auroras, Aurora Alphas and Betas should really appear much Faster than other planes.

Tanks/ Tanks General
Bigger and more realsitic Tank flashes when they shoot from their cannons
Advanced Gattling tank for Tanks general, twin barreled instead of one barrel

EMP Missiles should do more damage to aircraft since it no longer kills them with one missile.

Laser General
Laser Defenders should do damage to infantry
Laser Strike Skill should receive relevant upgrade from Argon lasers upgrade and thus turns green in color.

ALL infantry should be smaller (they look like 8 foot giants!!!)

Well, thats all i can propose, Creator plz consider at least some of them...

More ideas/proposals:

Blood and gore when infantry get hurt by bullets and explosions.
Gattling tanks should reach rapid-fire mode a little faster
All machine guns/Gattling weapons (all bullet firing units) should do more damage to infantry.
Aircraft/ Helicopters and the Spectre Gunship should deal damage to units or structures they crash into!

Also, maybe think bout this:
Flame General shoudl become Naplam/ECM General and possibility of changes above.
Cybernectic General should be Tomahawk/Cybernectic General And Coluster Tomahawk should thus come in 3 levels and he should have the Tomahawk fire base and Super Weapon General have some other Fire Base defense.
GLA Assault General should have more damaging units to fit the asault theme well in doing big damage in a single, swift assault. Scud Storm should have a different look for a nice GLA Assault General twist in it.
Just listing my thoughts.
Really want bloood!!!!!

Good ideas... Should be good to have a stick topic to post suggestions..

One cool idea to the Assault General Scud Storm would be it firing it's missiles very fast, like 0.1 second between each one, and they would strike this way too, like a fast rain of missiles...

About the napalm/ecm, i think this will not fit, as the SW generals already have the EMC "mastery" thing...

You guys suggest good ideas. I post here rarely, but I consider every suggestion and I will definetely implement some of them. But my first goal is gameplay. For example, lets take aurora bomber. Increasing its speed will make it more powerful. Consequently, its cost must be increased. Aurora cost $2500 already. Don't you think it will become too expensive? The same is with other ideas. I will implement them if they will not destroy gameplay.

These ideas are good:
-blood and gore
-Advanced Air Field for air force general (will have 2 different advanced airfields)
-EMP Missiles should do more damage to aircraft (super weapon general)
-Cluster Tomahawk with 3 levels

Actually, regarding all 3 Auroras i just suggested making them appear faster as in visibly faster than Raptors... Not saying you have to really make it faster than supersonic just for realism.

Creator, how bout making infantry slightly smaller for more realistic gameplay. Or make all buildings, tanks and other non-infantry units bigger so infantry size will be just right? :dry:

Actually, i meant that flame general should have slightly better ECM capabilities. What superweapon general has is EMP not ECM (Electronic Counter Measures) So having ECM Emitters for aircraft help dodge some missiles and rockets and aircraft can even act as make-shift ECM Tanks when put to guard over important structures you dont want getting destroyed by ROCKETS AND MISSILES ONLY.
Also, these ECM Emitters should be slightly weaker than the ECM Tanks for balance.

I don't want to make infantry too small. Yes, it will not be realistic, but units have to be big enough for player to see and easily control them. Units that are smaller than mouse cursor is suxx.
