Throwback Thursday
Throwback Thursday for 6th July

1 post in this topic

It's time for Throwback Thursday again! This week, we remember one of the more bizarre superweapons in Command & Conquer - the Allied Weather Control Device from Red Alert 2. Developed by Albert Einstein (because of course it was), this device was capable of firing a beam into the sky which would move clouds above a designated area in order to unleash powerful lightning storms which could electrocute infantry and demolish lighter and moderately armoured structures. This one shows how the Command & Conquer series, and particularly the Red Alert universe, was no stranger to quirky technologies.

Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don't forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you've missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments. We also encourage you to share this on social media using the hash tags #ThrowbackThursday, #CnCTBT and #CNCNZTBT.

      This week in our Throwback Thursday feature, we look at the evolution of the first Tesla Tank in the Red Alert universe. It first appeared in the Counterstrike mission "Legacy of Tesla" with the appearance of a Mobile Radar Jammer, as a campaign-only unit. In development builds of The Aftermath, it sported a similar chassis, but with a Tesla coil and a van de Graaff generator mounted on top of it. In its final appearance in the released version of The Aftermath, where it is available in skirmish and multiplayer as well, the Tesla coil is condensed and its profile is lower.

      Another Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge server alternative run by fans has emerged recently. NGWOL, much like XWIS, mimicks the old Westwood Online server and utilizes its lobby structure. Ladders for both games are available and functional, and the tool provided can have the games switch back and forth between NGWOL and XWIS. Information on signing up and connecting can be found on their website.

Along with balance changes and bug fixes, this patch implements Ares DLL version 0.Dp1, some new unit artwork, new Act Two and co-op missions, the Tech Reinforcement Pad, the Chronoboost support power for all Allied subfactions, briefings for many existing Act Two and co-op missions, new skirmish/multiplayer options, new challenges and more. The full changelog is available here. You can update your installation through the 3.3 client, or by using this manual update (requires 3.3.0 or 3.3.1 to be already installed).

      Welcome to the first-ever CNCNZ.com Game Night!
      For the longest while, I've wanted to make a multiplayer event for our forum members and followers, one where we'd just have fun with a chosen game or mod, without worrying of getting destroyed from higher-skilled players if we didn't want it so. So here's our chance of chilling out and playing C&C together. Free-for-all, 1v1, 2v2, 5v2, prettiest base contest, you name it, we can do it spontaneously.
      For the first night, we've decided to go with Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge , since it's apparently among the highest-regarded C&C games. If you already haven't done so, make sure your copy is properly installed and patched according to our new guide. The session will take place on CnCNet, so make sure you've downloaded the YR client from their website as well. Don't worry if you were unable to re-enable SafeDisc or your Ultimate Collection version was broken by the recent Origin update, the CnCNet YR client will run skirmishes and multiplayer regardless.
      There are (a) few rules, which will remain the same for all game nights:
      No cheating, intentional disconnects or map hacking (includes using one-sided maps where one player/team gets unfair advantages) Don't use exploits intentionally (especially in Tiberium Wars/Kane's Wrath) Treat everyone with respect and don't misbehave Don't teamkill We will make use of our new Discord server, which has a special text channel and four voice channels for the game nights. Hop in through this link: https://discord.gg/4PN3HEa
      The chosen date and time will be Saturday, 15 July 2017, at 19:00 GMT. You can use a time zone converter to determine what that will be in your time zone.
       
      If you have any questions or ideas, feel free to post them below. We hope to see as many of you as possible during the game night!
