There is a game called Command & Conquer: Generals
that i have played and modded alot.
its only about 10 or 20 dollars at Office Depot, but still a very good game.
As far as modding, all the things needed to do so are free, and relatively easy to use.
using Notepad and Gmax
, i can add a whole new unit in about 4 hours, with new weapons and armor values
The only thing i havent figured out on this game is animations
, and lighting. But, if this topic gets attention, there is still
a large community for C&C, and i should be able to get some people to help with these problems.
we could use this engine to make anything we want
. I would very much like to watch a squadron of Ikrans ripping apart a AMP suit
Apart from units, there are also off-map strikes
, super weopons
(launched from buildings), and upgrades
The units can also gain XP from kills, which can upgrade armor, speed, weapons, ect.
And yes, this is all perfectly legal (Westwood, bought by EA, helped supply the modding tools
It would take a bit of work to completely change C&C to Pandora, but it could be done
Just a thought, in case someone wanted a RTS based Avatar game
