This is a repost, but I still hope you're all doing fine and are enjoying the global madness all around us ... Anyways, I'm here to show you the virtual crazyness, some of the work me and my teammates have done on our Tiberian Sun mod; for Crysis in case you're wondering...
We've taken our precious time and we recently brought out some screenies showing off the Assault Rifles and the Vulcan Cannon... speaking of which, a question we asked in the update was which rifle design you'd prefer (the first one is similar to the one in the cutscene, the 2nd is my "heavier" design)?
I personally prefer the second one, but many guys in the team would pick the first one...
Our goal is to convert the original Tiberian Sun (so we ain't talking about Renegade) into the Crysis Engine and make it feel like the real deal... I personally think that the atmosphere in C&C was it's main characteristic (apart from the brilliant music, unit design and Kane), so I'm insisting we nail that one.
The other interessting aspect is, that we will be using Renegade's base system, however we will also include the Commander function, meaning that one player will be able to build buildings, fortify the base, plan for the squads that want to join him (remember, you can just as well play the lone-wolf game - that's at least what I'll probably be doing .
Or as I said in the interview we did with CNCNZ
We're aiming to bring a visually beautiful, immersive, authentic remake of the old Tiberian Sun. It will contain both elements from the old RTS and the newer Renegade game - you will be able to play the soldier, buy your own armour and create squads to outmanoueuver (and outgun) the enemy, as well as the Commander who will be responsible for building and fortifying the base, make sure the economics are right and keep an overview of the battlefield to support your "troops". Pure RTS mod in view as well.
Anyways, if you think it might be fun to play the original Tiberian Sun in the Crysis Engine and kick your buddies' ass in a Titan, feel free to check us out.
Nostalgics, FPS grunts and RTS masterminds, you're all welcome guys!

A few other important things I'd like to address:
- We redesigned our site (this is a transitional one, the real deal is coming soon) and we also opened up some threads (YouTube background contest, TS Questionnaire, behind the scenes, etc)
- We're hunting for modelers, 2D artists, sound designers, LUA scriptors and a few more... if you'd like to join the team, head over to the forum and sign up, say "Hi, Incognito sent me here" (lol), you know, the usual.... Besides, check the renders, they still need good GDI textures . If you're interessted, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- We'll also be posting more screenies over there and you can check the place out and see what we're all about!
That'd be all for now guys, feel free to critique&comment the pics you see and spread some love !
(the assault rifle and the Vulcan are my work, so bring it on!)
See you around!
PS: Admins, hope this ain't too image intensive, but I really have to show the stuff to the people. If there's a way to make the images 30-50% that'd be awesome!
PPS: Awesome forum design, very slick... and the smileys are silly but funny haha
