Here’s a couple of early WIP renders from a new map being created by Dark.

The map is set in a coastal environment which features a small town over run by decay. The main route between the two bases take players to the centre of the town with the central area surrounding the crossroads while side routes can be taken along the coastline skirting the edge of the map or to the north via the edge of the cliff faces.
Debris and rocky areas nearby the shoreline make good cover for infantry while the open spaces of the roads and areas nearby the bases provide excellent staging grounds for tank battles.

Orca Transport

Dark has been busy building a new Orca Transport to feature on certain maps as either a prop or a purchasable unit. Here are some WIP images. Once it’s finished it will be textured by Renardin.

Help Wanted

We’re looking for a new Rigger to help us speed up development on the mod. Your job would be rigging new units and infantry as well as fixing up older rigs created by others. Must have some prior experience and be able to work on your own. Please send a forum PM to Dark if you wish to apply.

Mutant Rocket Launcher
User Posted Image

The Mutant rocket launcher was modeled by MightyBob and is currently being textured by Renardin.

Lacking the funds of GDI and Nod's well-equipped armies, the Forgotten scavenge what they can to defend their interests.

The so-called "Arrow" rocket launcher system fires an optically guided missile (obtained from black market arms dealers) with a hefty 4.5 kilo shaped-charge warhead capable of inflicting a nasty amount of damage to its target.

The launcher itself is a simple tube with a cheap color/thermal camera system grafted on for the operator to guide the missile. Being cheap and scavenged, the cameras are known to fail so there is a manual optical scope as a backup.


Light Prop
Here's a Light model (and UV unwrap) made by Dark and texture by Renardin

(New) GDI Infantry
The GDI Infantry model has been updated slightly from what you all have from the infantry beta. Instead of talking about it, just take a look at it:
