cosmonauts

you know i completely forgot about them lmao

i suppose they are rather alike

actually Worm, im studying product and transport design at university

and ive learnt how to take criticism, but something else ive learnt it that when taking criticism, its good to try deffend your designs to gain the maximum criticism back, and see if people will sway to reason, or develop new ideas

so
yer

sorry if you personally took hat as rude, but that was not an intended meaning
i was simply trying to convey the idea, that yes i do know a fair bit about modding, and how important balancing things up are
and to the extent that i have learnt such ideologies from some of the best ra2/YR modders we have seen

ok language interpretation is a common fault to everyone
as you asked for some descriptions, i just grabbed that from my personal file, so it was worded for my understanding and originally just for my sights, i apologize about that

yes the hind havoc idea was, extending your point, i was adding further understanding for clarity and used another appropriate example with the harriers

as i said ive still got alot of testing and actually building to go through, and alot of things change when u start hitting developmental stage and prototyping, so i mean, i was considering making my aegis tank have like a 24 missile burst, so 12 shots from 2 gun ports, and have like a whole minute reload

so brutal to a bunch of kirovs, but better hope teres only 1 wave.

weapon designs are always difficult because of effectiveness, i mean chances are ill be making a new War Head code for every weapon thats normal and veteran

ok just to clear up, i dont have anything to prove, im doing this for some fun and own personal enjoyment
i stopped modding ra2 years ago, but occasionally messed around with little things

i mean im so far out of whack with things its crazy
like i had to think what Soylent was the other day, stupid me

but yer, ive got a few people to talk too, and things to consider

i havent even been down the structure / SW path yet, so
hopefully be majoritabbly done by the time i go back to uni

also something to note, with my prism trooper would be that he is slow, and has a slow rate of fire
so yes he gets a good shot off, but to have any real effect you would have to use all 20 of them

i have designed alot of units in tandem

eg. re moddelling the harrier so its more effective to one role, and include an alternative to suit a better role

normally when i play, i select units to complete one role, not every unit to do everything at once

Aegis tank is sorta still to be worked out, also did you ever see the aegis cruiser's original rules that have been commented out of rulesmd
that may be something i go for with this, so slow reload, great if they spam some planes over or something, but as soon as the second wave comes, yer you screwed

the Hind Havoc deal is based some what on tactical roles

the hind plays more of an attack role, carries 3 units, maybe engies or flack or tesla maybe
runs in, picks off the odd base deffence and lets out engines
or have a load of them, bust in and slaughter the base,
have the ability to mawl off th GGI hanging around

and the Havoc, this is a recon / defence role to quickly run out, pick off your enemies miners and use it as a defensive unit when you being attacked

lol not to be rude

but ive been here since June '03 when cncguild moved its forums to revora, and id been on cnc guild forums for 2 years
ive had lots of time to sit and play this game over the years lol, ive played some of the bets mods around and talk to alot of ppl
im pretty good friends with rawlo and pad, so i get the good know how on ra2/yr modding
ive learnt from some of the best and even had some of the best use my coding/vxling/mapping and to an extent shps

so i do kinda know how to balance things up
obviously this is to be done after ive actually got the base script all working and made all the vxl's and shp's, clearly this is pretty much a solo effort here lol

so ill keep you updated and if you have some criticism i would be glad to sit and listen because i do take things on board. to be honest the build limmits are just a balancing coy at the moment, its to be balanced out later in hope of limitting this
