"Tiberium" means a "tree" spawn "crystals" or "piles" around it for harvesters to collect,like in the first US buildings screenshot. and "Supplydock"...well, you do played Generals don't you? :thumbsupsmiley:

I believe for supply dock you mean a structure that automatically creates funds every few minutes, and the tiberium something you have to gather.

Well here are my thoughts:

A : Supply dock : easy, practicle. Has to be expensive and built after some time (high tech).

B : Piles : tactical, interresting : Forces the player to wander through the map in order to find them, and probably defend also the place. But somehow unrealistic system. Cons : can be depleted.

Other ideas from other mods:

C : CWC flag system (Cold War Crisis mod) : same thing as piles, but represents an important and strategic area. Good thing : not supposed to be depleted.

D : Blitzkrieg 2 mod / VGO mod occupation system : very realistic, you have to garnison soldiers into neutral buildings to get little funds. Interresting, can be destroyed, looks good, forces the player to play with infantry and explore the whole map.

I would suggest A at high technological level, some B for bonus (and give a second role to dozers if they are ingame), C as spots to be captured (can give extra range or whatever bonus instead of funds) and mainly income D, because it's smart, intteresting, tactical and still pretty fresh.

you need harvester to gather in both methods, the main different between them is "tiberium" means a number of small, low-value piles. "supply dock" means a single large high-value one like in Generals. their priority can be different based on maps.

flags/oildderricks will be in(with different name maybe), and the occupation system is interesting but i'm not sure you can do that in CNC3.

Sorry to bump a near year-old topic, but about that not being possible in CNC3/RA3:

It is perfectly possible, just give a neutral structure an AutoDepositUpdate(check the Tib Spike codes under the behavior module). When infantry garrison a structure(like a house for example) it is basically capturing it, and all the infantry in it dying(like when a grenadier or flame tank attack it) it is losing it. When you garrison you gain the funds it generates, and when you lose it you stop getting the funds form it.

Again, sorry for bumping this extremely old topic, I hope it is no problem though.
