Use a better SHP for the Medic... SEAL recolours are just so boring.
The Medic screen shot isn't uploaded, but yeah SEAL recolors are pretty boring, if i could make my own SHPs, other than recolors. I could try recoloring another infantry unit.
the problem with ideas isn't nesseciarly if overused but the appeal of the unit
its like people associate grenadier = soviets
prism rifle = prism troopers = ugh noob modding cowshot ifv days (only possible exception is mo enforcer but I hate the idea of it)
finally generic names kinda make mod seems oh noes not another abrams
even yr uses interest names like guardian gi instead of rocket soldier
your want your mod to stick out somehow
also the medic could work if your using some form of stim pack logic e.g. a heal gun
also if you personalise hero units e.g. some name, people will gain a associate with unit instead of another disposable infantry unit.
one issue in cnc games is also the cannon fodder effect of inf which several mods (including my own) are trying to overcome.
your mod will have a different appeal if players can't rely on GI's deployed on cliffs or guardian gis in battle fortress otherwise your just adding units which no-one trains late game a classic example is grizzlies for the allies as the prism is far too powered in anti-tank role (thats a issue though concerning ww warhead system)
About the grenadiers are you saying they fit the Soviet profile better or just that people assume they should be Soviet.
For the Prism Rifles I was thinking about removing Prism Technology from the Mod completely, but it's the German specialty I had.
The Abrams i can understand, every mod gives the Allies an Abrams, I can see that getting old, I think i'll try and think of another good strong tank name.
I like the Stim Pack idea, that sounds really cool.
I didn't have the Allied Commando as a hero type unit, i wanted him more of a better than regulars infantry, but I see what you mean, renaming him with more original names.
How did you get around units being Cannon Fodder because that sounds like an interesting way to go.
OK, for the basic units I see what you mean. I myself have gone for alot of GIs over a few Chrono Legionaries.
