    Use the new soldier model recently submitted. It's a lot better.

    What I am saying is the shield is like a force field. It will stay, no matter how weak, but will stop all attacks until broken. However, it only offers like 30 extra defense

    You could have made a one0charge non-perishable item powerup that gives AMS, but make sure when they drop it it's like useless

    The Energy Shield i have now is a 1 use item that gives a 20hp AMS for unlimited time. So basically, its like adding 20 hp that cannot regenerate, and is lost forever once you get damaged.

    Make sure you cannot drop any packs you have, and you only are limited to one pack a person. Health packs should be like for medics, to heal allies only. This will encourage teamwork. Also, you might want to have like key cards hidden in the areas where you can take them to open doors and stuff, and possibly a amster key of something. But that's optional.

    It's that guy working on Clash of the Titans mod changing Warcraft 3 into Red Alert 2 just 3 forums above yours. End of those jokes.

    That render is a gate doodad of a cliff, if you're interesed I can try to make a door like gate, but that depends on what you're goning to include in your project map.

    Good night.

    Heh sorry i dont check wc3s forums except my own 8)

    If you could make doors that look somewhat like that (3 tiles wide, thats how all my entrences are) it would be so perfect!

    Oh and im also interested in that little camera, pointing alittle down just like that one do. Cuz im gonna put up camera doodads in some corners, which you can "use" to reveal that room from another room.

    You would get the same credits as dankiz (tileset/skins) and Snaky (loading screen, preview picture) got.

    Maybe electrocution equipment (very expensive) to paralyze enemies, or to hack open doors

    If I can throw in some ideas I think that the automatic weapons should have a burst or a short auto shot, but do the same damage, to make it look better.

    I think maybe a EMP grenade which overrides some systems in the game like the door to open or be "stunned" for a short time, maybe some weaponry to be useless for similar amount of time.

    About that paralyzing enemies with some toxins? Maybe even toxins that damage and worn of slowly but damage everyone and can be found very rarely not to make it to imbalanced.

    I'll think of some more later.

    Good ideas, thanks all =)

    Maybe the EMP grenade could also knock out all lights in the area, creating a dark filter over the area so you can barely see your enemies?

    Also, because oyu disabled alt, you could just create a darkened effect like a dark cloud model from TOB

    Could you make land mines as one type of auto-spawn things. You could give it a 10 seconds activation delay...and it should'nt be invisible. But you can hide it in the new bushes or something like that. And it has a rather big explosion radius. You have to trigger your own land mine then since the land mine abilities make it invulnerable.
    Tell me what you think about that idea :).

    Space stations don't have bushes. Maybe EMP mines or even an EMP gun instead of spinfusor

    Eusira: If you would have red the other post on the forum called "Terrain remake" you would know that half the map now have bushes ^^

    Voi: Very cool idea, but do you have any suggestions of how you would detect them? You need to be able to detect them in some way, and you need to be able to disarm them. Otherwise you can block entrences with them ^^

    Maybe putting a low sound on it, so you can hear it if you move close? Like a "Beep beep beep beep"

    And making it so you can fire at it to destroy...

    yes that last with sound is good idea :). Use a periodic event to detect them since the a unit comes in range of unit trigger can't respond the unit in the event.

    One last suggestion: Snipers: You use scope which locks your sniper in place for a short moment. When done so, you have a short area revealed whereever you please within a range. When you attack, you release a high-power shot that can kill if aimed (100 splash marker, is outside 30 of original target it does half, which is like 60 damage)
