Hey there, I'm a 24 year old living in England who has a real passion for games and making them. I'm a massive C&C and Dune fan who loves to make maps.
So they do use Lasguns and they are in Emperor: Battle for Dune (which is what we're based off) but we haven't included them yet, that's kind of their direct energy weapon class.
Projectiles are something that get used a lot, like Mauler Pistols and Flechette guns that can carry poisons along with darts for assassinations.
However, Emperor: Battle for Dune designed the combat more in the direction that would work for a game, with a much more heavier focus on ranged combat with machines guns etc, rather than melee. But we'd still like to include melee at some point.
Who says we haven't already got something like that planned? ;)
We would, but too much work has gone into getting a release on this engine. After we get the game out and some patches, who knows?
When it's met it's first release checks.
They aren't implemented yet.
Delta has been released! Expect a news post here real soon!
But while you wait, grab the W3D Hub Launcher to get the game and join a server!
Sandworms will not be on every map due to how close rocks and cliffs are. But rest assured, we will have Shai-Hulud roaming free!
Yeah we are still very much alive and are very busy hard at work!
That's fair enough, if you do decide to sign up we look forward to seeing your application!
Skype is the main instant messenger we use and we've had no issues with it thus far.
TeamSpeak 3 is our live chat program and works perfectly for us.
Just showing your support and stay being a fan is all you need to do, we really do appreciate it.
Thank you for the comments, we have no intention of giving up!
Sorry for the lack of communication around here, we have been working on the game not to worry. We should have new things to show off soon!
Yeah there will be!
Guys, simply amazing. I love the game, keep up the fantastic work!
We are still working on it but we're trying to get a lot of things fixed and working properly, a new map is on the way and new content shall be coming to a blog soon!
Please don't let this mod die, the stuff you were doing and the very idea is amazing!
How far are you guys?
I didn't know this was the Tiberian Sun: Reborn RTS :D
Is there any reason why you aren't calling the "Emperor" faction "House Corrino"?
The terrain textures normally get updated when something better is generally found, but we do try and keep things looking nice and have plans for new terrain textures in the future.
Late reply but.. Yes Engineers and Technician class units will be able to disarm explosives.
Battle for Dune's work in a very different way to Apoc Risings and have been around just as long :v.
He will get a pistol along with his binoculars.
That's exactly how we are going to have it, sorry for the late reply.
Late reply but thank you for the comment and keeping the faith!
The remote will be weaker than the timed, due to how quickly you can detonate it and only Engineers will be able to carry them for building destruction.
Thank you for the comment!! And yeah don't worry, it was just for my birthday. If you look closely towards the end you can see a room where the Atreides are all drinking!
We are planning a map or two with bots on.
SP bots on maps for offline is planned. As for a small campaign, we're not 100% sure.
And it's up here as well!
