Re: Coming Soon(ish, maybe)
Official release may be delayed by a further day or three for a last-minute actor addition (mobile brain/officer) for Unmapped Lands/etc. support. Yes, I intend to support UL1/2/VW out of the box as usual.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on our custom dropship that I just finished coding up the gibs for;Yes, I know. I've already fixed the health indicator height.
We ended up using a scrapped concept from Tiberium Wars since all the other dropships would have been a poor fit for Cortex Command - the TW-era V-35 Ox
and TS-era Orca Transport were too flat and would have been much less interesting, and the TS-era Orca Dropship was far too large! Instead, we ended up cooking up this baby, the V-20 Bison
Transport. Its main strengths are its (relatively) small rotors, high cargo capacity, and good-quality armour, though it has a fairly large and awkward profile compared to the slimmer, sleeker Brotherhood Carryall. At the same time it can fit into narrower areas than the much wider
Carryall, so there's potentially some tradeoffs there for maneuvering near structures.
Currently the lower minirotors do nothing except absorb stray bullets, but I may make it so they emit lift particles too for redundancy purposes. We'll see.
