Lt_Albrecht @ S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Chernobyl

Russia says the interim Ukrainian government is full of neo-Nazis, the interim Ukrainian government says Russia is trying to undermine Ukraine's sovereignty. Depending on who you believe, either Russia is attempting to keep Ukraine in its sphere of influence (i.e. outside the EU) or Russia is trying to protect its citizens. Both sides are dubious, but it is acknowledged that Russia pretty much straight-up annexed Crimea, backed up by their military.

In the east, pro-Russian protesters (who may or may not have been armed by Russia, it's less clear than in Crimea) took over police stations, civil offices and other government facilities. The interim Ukrainian government sent the military in to get them out and return them to government control. Now depending on your perspective it's either a young government trying to avoid being pulled apart by foreign interference, fascists trying to establish control over the country by force or people who disagree with the change in government (and resulting focus on EU ties instead of Russia) protesting by force.

The situation is not a civil war, it's a mess. Nobody knows what's going on, partly because nobody tells a clear perspective on it. Russian news sources focus on the right-wing elements and supposed chaos in the streets, whereas american sources just say Russia's trying to rebuild the USSR. Neither of which is very informative.

No. Renegade didn't have a Tiberian Sun mode, so renegade-x isn't planned to.

However, if/once they open up renegade-x for other modders it's possible someone like the folks at blue hell productions might give it a shot seeings as they've been making a tiberian sun mod for the original renegade.

There is a small amount of recoil, it's not very noticeable and unless you're shooting first person at reasonably long range it comes close to being just an aesthetic change.

Recoil didn't ruin it, the combination of no recoil and no increase in spread as you fired meant renegade infantry combat was dominated by laserbeams made of bullets. That's no 'RTS feel', even in Tiberian Dawn the minigunners fired in bursts.

Death from explosive weapons like direct tank gun hits feels much harder, but the splash from most tank guns also feels weaker, so it's still a balance and reduces the ability of tanks to 'lock down' areas of space through blindfire into doorways. It doesn't feel quite like renegade, but it wasn't ever going to as much of that 'renegade feel' was actually made up of rather poor gameplay elements people got accustomed to. Some of them are worth preserving or restoring, but many were just quirks of westwood's inexperience with the FPS genre and the rush to actually finish the damn game as it repeatedly had its launch pushed back.

"generic Gears of War rock em sock em robots" sounds like you don't actually know exactly what you don't like and are just complaining it's somehow intangibly 'not right'. If you knew of an FPS you felt it'd moved closer towards you'd have named it, but as-is you're just bellyaching because the idea you had in your head and what you got don't match.

Lt_Albrecht @ D-day v3.7 beta release

Yes, it is true. I was not disagreeing. However, the way you chose to say this was dismissive and ill-informed. This is strange, as D Day is (over) 10 years old and (at least in the Red Alert 2 community) is rather well known.

Lt_Albrecht @ D-day v3.7 beta release

Why are you always so critical of everything? All you've done for three years since I last paid any attention to moddb is make petty criticisms.

Mig Eater made D-Day by himself, yes there are derivative works because hand-drawing pixel art is incredibly time consuming and although he's managed to do enough for half a dozen complete factions, terrain for at least two map types (IIRC a temperate and urban set of tilesets at least) and many buildings, his time is not limitless. You know what you haven't seen? The several hundred unit models he hand-built (including painting the normals for lighting), the hand drawn pixel graphics of the previously mentioned structures, and the other tilesets, all visible at Dday.migeater.net.

What have you achieved? I don't know. I honestly can't find out, your moddb profile links to a bunch of old mods that are frankly embarrassingly bad (one 'realistic item names and double carry weight' STALKER mod, some HL2 project made of cut content, the list goes on) and though I vaguely remember something about some 'Wilson Chronicles' there's not much to show for it anywhere.

You know what they say, people who live in glass houses should not throw stones, my friend.

"stealth was good in Fallout 3"
Since when? Fallout 3's Stealth is ABYSMAL. The whole system is utterly screwed (this coming from someone who has messed with it quite a bit). Keep S.T.A.L.K.E.R. gameplay the hell away from FO3's. I play FO 1/2/NV for story, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. for gameplay (not to say it has a bad plot, I mean it's pretty good tbh).

I have to say I thought Checkerboard hopes was a better troll than this.

Yeah that's all

No outrage

No 'take this down nao!' self righteous ********

no 'oh won't somebody please think of the future!'

Who gives a **** if they outlaw games in Amerifagland, land of the not so free? Doesn't your constitution forbitd that kind of thing? Oh wait.. It isn't actually law, it's just a bit of paper. First the patriot act, then a video games ban and before you know it you'll all be as ignorant, xenophobic and censored as as certain European nation was after a leadership change about 1933...

In short: Sucks to be you!

If you don't get brutally mudered a few times you're not doing it right... I got the T51B and was off to mariposa to confront the FEV and the first super-mutant patrol I ever saw gunned down both my companions in two turns flat... Safe behind my T51B I wasn't slaughtered... But only because they ran out of minigun ammo.

The G3a4 fires 7.62x51mm NATO standard (Aka .308 Winchester).
The Mp5 fires 9x19mm Parabellum

The G3 is a battle/assault rifle
The Mp5 is a Submachinegun

Do you see where you are wrong now you condescending Yahtzee imitator?

Yeah, the guys who made STALKER have said (officially) that they have no qualms whatsoever with porting their models for non-profit reasons. Maybe you could use some of the original STALKER assets in your mod to speed things up?

It IS intentional. You won't belive the hell I've given them over it :P It is most definitely intended, simple graphics, more complex gameplay. Also, everything looks more happy when in block colours, cheers up the mass slaughter to no end XD

Or even better, there are a load of really nice models of FPSB of this style that replace the stock HL2 weapons. IIRC there are:
Pistol->Beretta
Grenades->HL1 style Mk2s
SMG->MP5 w/M203
Shotgun->Spas12 w/stock
AR2->M4M203

Better angle needed, extended mags are lame, use the normal one that actually fits inside the grip. Other than that, not bad.

Worst mapping? You want bad mapping go check one of those other "Commando goez to Balkc msea" mods. I've played a few levels so far (Stopped at the tram, crashed when I used the mounted m249) and they are all beautiful, with a few neat ideas.
