These look interesting, I'll try them tomorrow.

Also I love the way that Drop Rocket looks.


Edit: These are quite good.
Just the Guided missle needs more boom. (Hiting something directly with a rocket is kinda hard.)
And the Drop Rocket could use some gibs.

>Load up your favorite explosives

I haven't even downloaded this yet and I'm gonna give it a five out of five. :D
Also, everything just looks fantastically sprited. Great job.

I'm also troubled about the 150 HP rocket. I mean I'm all up for doing it your way, but it's not good for my cheating habits.

Guns aren't crazily overpowered, soldiers make sense, the grenades may have a short TriggerDelay but it's pretty ok, the only thing I didn't understand is why does the rocket have 150 HP? I keep making profit just buy buying one and returning it!

But I liked this factions, I liked the sprite style.

EDIT:

Well, after playing some more with this I have some stuff to say:

-The blaster SMG and the assault rifle are basically the same thing. You should make the assault rifle more accurate and stronger or make the smg less accurate and less powerful.
-Having all actors pre-equipped make almost useless having those extra weapons. You should make a special "multi-purpose" soldier that comes empty.
-The crasher cannon isn't very powerful, you should strengthen up the explosion of the particle. That, or it seems to bounce from some things.
-The heavy rifle needs some more punch.
-The missile is a bit hard to control if you equip it with many bombs.

And some notable thing I have to say, guns are pretty balanced aside from the listed things, they don't rape terrain at all, they are pretty nice.

The next update is going to be all about polishing the weapons, and adding a few extra nice things :P It'll be out soon, I'm just working on a couple things before the next release.

EDIT: After looking at the code for the rocket, I realized the the ImpulseDamageThreshold and GibImulseLimit were both set to 99999! Lmao, that's gonna be fixed in the next release too :P

EDIT..Again :P : Version 1.1 is UP! Tell me what you think!!! :D

First things first, why did you put AddToGroup to all the gibs? They fill all my buying menu in the bunker building phase D=

Now, everything seems much better except for a couple of things:
-The Crasher cannon now is very powerful, but it kinda rapes terrain. But this doesn't matter though, it's intended to be fired against dropships in the air.
-The grenade launcher now is almost the same thing as the crasher cannon, the grenade is fired too fast. It should be fired slowlier (?) and it should make an arc, just like most grenade launchers.
-The grenades rape too much terrain for being just grenades.
-The sniper rifles rape too much terrain too (the compact can go through a conrecete wall, probably more). I don't think that this is a major problem, but it is one.

But the mod evolved pretty good, I liked a lot the demolition soldier and the new sounds, and also the new sprite of the assault rifle.

Also, the balancing between both guns was pretty good, now I can tell which is the SMG and which the AR.

Edit:
I forgot to say, the retro thrusters of the rocket aren't on the sprite, they are floating like 5 pixels under the main thruster.

You should improve the sprites.
-Make less solid black lines. In CC solid black is used for details, not as a base of the sprite.
-Use more color variation. Try adding some colors in between dark brown and bright red. When a sprite only uses a few solid colors it can be hard to make it look good unless you're making an NES sprite.
-Brighten up the weapons. They're too dark and look very unattractive, add something to make them pop out. Just because this is a war-based game doesn't mean it has to be GRIMDARK DULLSHADE - THE GAME. (that should totally be a game BTW)
-Use less checker patterns (dithering?) on everything. there everwere////. man,

Other than that though I like the sprites on the rockets and the guns are good, except for visuals.

The Jericho is pretty nice, but I still can't stress how much you need to fix those sprites.

I suggest a higher blast radius on the grenade launcher.
Can be anything, like an airblast or anything. Just make it biggah.

Edit: Grenades in general need to have a higher explosion.

Now it looks and works better. Except for one detail, the particles of the crasher cannon sometimes bounce back, killing the user and everyone near.

EDIT:

Fixed the lua of the visible inventory, just add an end at the end of the script.

Glad you took out many of the units, they were spamming a lot the buy menu.

And good thing you used an underslung grenade launcher. And the new mortar is awesome, how it works and the sprite.
And the new sprite for the jericho is cool too.

My only complaint is still the crasher cannon, the explosion sometimes bounces off from the targets.

And why don't you make a pistol as a secondary weapons instead of the SMG?

Yeah I'm thinking of getting rid of the crasher cannon altogether, it's useless with the new mortar cannon. (Plus I never use it :P)

I've really been considering a pistol for a while now, I'll probably have one made with the next release.

What's really fun is if you add like 5 rounds to the mortar magazine and make it full auto. It's like raining fury, so much fun :P
