0 Contra 009 work in progress - News Update 16

Posted by predator_bg on May 3, 2020 in Contra News (eng)

Hi everyone!

Work on Patch 3 is almost on daily basis. From models, maps and audio to AI improvement, game balance and bug fixes.
You already know that our Patch version is more like a new Contra version, rather than patching missed things and errors.

Because of that, please have some more patience. Still, we need to show some work in progress.
Few new models and visual improvements.

PO_render.jpg

- New addition to China Infantry general is "Propaganda Officer". Lately, we are focusing on Infantry general's play style. We want to improve infantry hordes and encourage player to use infantry units, rather than relying only on Troop Crawlers. Troop Crawlers are still there, and it is good to have them as support and transport units, but soldiers are what you need if you play Infantry General. Propaganda Officer is available at rank 1 and as his name tells, he grants propaganda effect to your units.
Voices are amazingly done by our Voice Actor Matthew Vanston.



Let's continue with models!

Acid_pump.jpg

- GLA Chemical general "Acid Pump" is now a separate structure. So, now you can build both Toxin and Acid Pump for your defenses. This means that they finally have an automatic fire mode.

ECM_render.jpg

- China Tank General's early gameplay was sometimes unfair, because of the ECM tank unit. When you are Airforce general, or Cybernetic, or most of your arsenal is rocket-based, and Tank General has 2-3 ECM tanks in horde, it was extremely hard to do some damage and to get rid of them. That's why we removed ECM tank from early game and added "ECM tower", which can be built almost as easy as Propaganda tower. They have a bigger deflection radius than the ECM tank had last time. You can protect your base from fast attacks or advance with them slowly.

Katyusha_render.jpg

- Most of the units got redesigned parts, which improve their visuals. Showing all of them would be too much for this update, but here is the one that is easily recognized. "Katyusha" got remodeled back part, as well as turret, which can now pitch up and down. We've done our best to rebalance this unit as well.

- Another thing which we are working on, are small details for structures. Meaning, each general's structures which are shared with other generals, got unique objects as details. Most of those objects can be seen on Command Centers in previous versions. So far, GLA structures are made. Assault has scrap parts, rockets and barrels. Chemical has pipes, headers and chemical barrels. Demolition has explosive barrels and C4 charges. Stealth has surveillance equipment installed.

ASLT_structures.jpg

CHEMO_structures.jpg

DEMO_structures.jpg

SLTH_structures.jpg

- And another big improvement is lately done by EmperorAlexander.
He is our new member and he works on particle effects. By now, he has done tons of new effects, but here is just a sneak peak into some of them.


FX11.jpg

FX22.jpg


**** At the very end, we need to say big thanks to people who supported us through donations. We will publish their nicknames in a new section in the mod credits with the next release. If you want, you can also support us and help with our development. ****

1 Contra 009 FINAL PATCH 2 released!

Posted by predator_bg on December 18, 2019 in Contra News (eng)

Just before Holidays, we decided to finally release long awaited Patch 2 for Contra 009 FINAL!

We know that patch 1 was long time ago and you expected patch 2 earlier this year, but we packed so many things into this that at the end it was worth waiting.

This Holiday special bundle includes: reported bug fixes, new artwork, new voices, new general's powers, fixed AI, new maps, new launcher and new VPN!

- So, let's start with bug fixes and in-game changes!

To avoid huge list in this important article, you can read full changelog by following this link: https://www.moddb.co...angelog-part-21

- Just some of the new artwork!
A lot of in game stuff is changed, from units, effects, to game menu interface. Most of the beautiful stuff you will experience while playing.
However, as usual, here are some new renders of redesigns:

Render1.4.jpg

 

Render2.2.jpg

As seen in official videos, Valanx is replaced with Hummer variants. There are 2 random variants with snow version.

Render4.1.jpg

Super Weapon and Air Force generals use Hummer-based Avenger

Render3.1.jpg

Old Seraph mech is redesigned with concept similar to other angel type units!

Render5.1.jpg

GLA Marauder tank is now using its original Zero Hour concept, but much more detailed and improved!

Render6.1.jpg

Most of the "spawn" generals powers in game are balanced in such way, that they are dropped by planes. This change affected GLA and for this purpose small cargo plane has been made. Corvus will drop demo traps, acid, toxins and tunnel drillers.

Render7.jpg

China Gatling defense is also improved visually!

 

- Contra is richer by one new dimension now, thanks to voice actors and amazing job they did for so many units: Matthew Vanston (1, 2), Trench Dog, Forrest McGilvray, Connor Miranda (1), Cari Scholtens, TryToEpic (1, 2), Kinsmarck (1), Greekas, Caroline Sawatzki, Maelstrom (1)

- Contra Launcher has been reworked to support a new VPN. Once again you have everything you need with one control panel:

Render8.jpg

- Now you can also support us and our work. Contra is larger than before, and includes many collaborators and skilled people who share and sacrifice their free time in order to expand and improve this mod. All the support will be a reward used for further projects!

 

Render9.jpg

At the end, once again we want to say thanks to all the good people who voted for Contra in the last MOTY.
It's always good to see that hard work is appreciated, and so it can be this year too.
Contra is already in second round and we are happy for this, but feel free to vote once again and help us score better!

0 Patch 2.2.13 released!

Posted by OmegaBolt on December 16, 2019 in Tech Center News

YR Red-Resurrection is back baby, with a swathe of new units, Confederation buffs, new maps, AI improvements, graphical improvements, bug fixes and more! Check out a brief trailer below, showcasing some of the changes.
 


And that's just skimming the surface! To go into a bit more detail, let's take a look one of the coolest additions - the Vandal Scraptank.
 

trkQdJSl.jpg


A new tier 4 'monster tank' for Confederation, this beast is only available from a support power attached to the Revolutionary Headquarters. It only costs $1500 to spawn 3 of these bad boys, but before they can become too powerful they have to earn some kills! With each veterancy level the tank attaches more armour and weaponry, eventually becoming a formidable weapon that can turn the tides of battle.
 
Furthermore, navy has seen a number of additions to make that lacklustre area of combat more interesting. Both factions now get repair ships - the Rig and Lifeboat - as well as helicopter carriers - the War Turtle and Crocodile. This to add another layer of combat, where anti-aircraft can be a requirement and to help mixing of different unit types.
 

ztwMfE7l.jpg


Moreover the Gunboat has been replaced with the Minisub, making early game engagements potentially more interesting. All pre-existing vessels have had balance adjustments as well.

Of course there are more new maps as always, ranging from 1v1 to 3v3. Here are a few examples:
 

oTIgDyal.jpg


Of course there are many balance changes too, bug fixes and so on! Here's an overview of the entire patch:

Big Features
  • Addition: Minisub. Replaces the Gunboat for the Allies. A small submarine, good against light ships.
  • Additions: Rig and Lifeboat, for the Allies and Soviets respectively. Repair ships available at the Naval Yard.
  • Additions: War Turtle and Crocodile Heli-hauler, for the Allies and Soviets respectively. Available at the Naval Yard with either Airforce Command HQ or Air Strategy Centre. A long range attack helicopter carrier, good vs enemy vessels, structures and off-shore bombardment.
  • Additions: Charge Thrower and Torpedo Tower, for the Allies and Soviets respectively. Available with the Naval Yard, these two are defensive structures for use on water, with good range and sensors, intended to better protect the shore allowing fleets to spend their time elsewhere.
  • Addition: Vandal Invasion, support power for Confederation at the Revolutionary Headquarters. For $1500 credits it spawns 3 Vandal Scraptanks at the HQ, which are quick anti-tank vehicles. Their speciality is the ability to upgrade themselves with each veterancy level, gaining strength, firepower and anti-air / anti-infantry rockets as well! Furthermore they can enter Resistance Tunnels, allowing for powerful strikes anywhere on the battlefield.
  • AI updates including nerfs to support power usage and Chronosphere support.
  • New interactable natural features such as Destructible Rocks and Tornadoes (map specific).
  • 9 all new maps for skirmish and multiplayer.
  • Reworked over a dozen existing maps for more interesting strategies and improved balance.
  • Tonnes of significant balance adjustments and bug fixes.
You can view the full changelog here.

The patch can be downloaded and manually installed, if you are unable to use the client updater for whatever reason.

0 Patch 2.2.12 released!

Posted by OmegaBolt on June 8, 2019 in Tech Center News

Four months of development, but hopefully worth the wait! Feel like I've said this a lot, but 2.2.12 is a big patch. It's main change is the inclusion of a brand new 5-mission campaign for the United States, marking the beginning of Red-Resurrection timeline. Furthermore the campaign features great voice acting and fully animated cutscenes between missions to tell the story in detail! Check out the trailer below.

 

 

The campaign can be found in the singleplayer menu of course, and although it can be played in any order I recommend going through them as listed for the story to make sense! Due to the size of the cutscenes I have put them up as a separate download, but please grab them before playing as they should massively improve the experience (and a lot of work went into them!).

That's not all however. Soviet Russia has received a replacement for the Tupolev, a jet which greatly added to their already potent frontline force. Instead, they receive a support power on T3 with the Air Strategy Control named the Judas Corps.
 

dZsGjRDm.jpg

 

Judas Corps paradrops in 2 Spetsnaz infantry, equipped with a long range rifle and 'Blackout' EMP charges for use on structures. That is their main use, to sabotage enemy producted by disabling factories. This gives Russia another dimension and unique ability to slow down their enemy with subterfuge.

On top of that there are a bunch of new maps! Here are a few examples:
 

GCsSgPSm.jpg

 

Of course there are many balance changes too, bug fixes and so on! Here's an overview of the entire patch:

Big Features

  • Added a brand new 5-mission United States campaign, including full voice acting! The US has had enough of Libya's belligerence and launched an invasion with the goal of toppling it's president Hamza al-Sanussi - and thus beginning the Red-Resurrection story.
  • ADDITION: the Judas Corps support power for Soviet Russia. Available at T3 from the Air Strategy Control, it paradrops 2 Spetsnaz special forces equipped with a long range anti-infantry rifle and anti-structure EMP bombs. Capable of disabling enemy structures for 45 seconds at a time. Replaces the Tupolev.
  • 11 all new maps for skirmish and multiplayer.
  • Improvements to several Red Alert 2 campaign missions, making them harder on higher difficulties.
  • Hot new lava tilesets featured on many new and old maps.
  • Reworked existing maps for more interesting strategies and improved balance.
  • Many balance adjustments and bug fixes.

You can view the full changelog here.

The patch can be downloaded and manually installed, if you are unable to use the client updater for whatever reason.

0 Patch 2.2.11 out now!

Posted by OmegaBolt on February 13, 2019 in Tech Center News

It's been a couple of months since the last patch for YR Red-Resurrection and in that time some significant changes have been made. Since the release of 2.2 I have been reworking countries that I felt were lacking, and the last of those was the United Kingdom, who have finally been given the attention they need in this release.
 

kSi2r6mm.jpg


Calling in reinforcements from around the empire, the British Army is bolstered with special units capable of turning the tides of battle. Furthermore they gain the Pintail and Pop Shell, which replaces the Arms Jammer, and the Battle Fortress has been reworked.
 

A6hQYwvm.jpg


Not only have the UK received additions however, Yugoslavia gains the Ironsmith, an infantry equipped to render your tank divisions unstoppable! As always, new maps have been added as well.
 

MX3umQ2m.jpg


If you're interested in how those maps get made you can watch a timelapse of myself creating Close Encounter (2)! Remember to subscribe on YouTube for additional content.
 


Of course there are many balance changes, bug fixes, additional maps and more! Here's an overview of the entire patch:

Big Features
Reworked the United Kingdom, altering existing units and removing and replacing others, including-

  • The Colonial Bureau for the UK on T2. Provides units at intervals depending on your tech tier; the Skitter on T1 - a fast amphibious harassment unit equpped with mines, the Gurkha on T3 - a steadfast versatile soldier and the Wildcat at T4 - a long range anti-unit artillery.
  • The Pintail for the UK. An aircraft available at T3, replaces the Arms Jammer. Attaches a bomb to enemy vehicles that jams their weapons, and the weapons of surrounding vehicles, for 45 seconds.
  • The Pop Shell support power for the UK. Spawns a tank bunker anywhere on the map, allowing you to fortify an area on the fly!
  • The Ironsmith for Yugoslavia. And infantry on T3 who can attach charges to friendly vehicles which double their armour when activated!
  • A new client feature; the Pick Random Map button, available in skirmish and multiplayer. Selects a random map based on the number of participants in the game.
  • 7 all new maps in skirmish and multiplayer.
  • A dozen reworked existing maps for more interesting strategies and improved balance.
  • Many balance adjustments and bug fixes.

You can view the full changelog here.

The patch can be downloaded and manually installed, if you are unable to use the client updater for whatever reason.
