  1. Ashes of the Singularity

    Just looking at one video, it seems to me like the biggest difference in the core mechanics of the game is C&C encourages more precise actions with limited units, whereas Ashes of the Singularity focuses more on wars with hundreds of units at a time. In a "perfect" C&C game you would use a squad-sized number of every unit on your team (this doesn't actually happen in reality), whereas in Ashes of the Singularity, it seems that the focus is more on building a battalion to fight an enemy battalion. Additionally, C&C is heavily campaign based. Many players will play the entire series without playing any more than a handful of online games. It seems that this is not the case for Ashes of the Singularity, which has an almost tutorial-like campaign.
  2. CNCNZ Updates - September 2017

    The new theme has been pushed to all users. If you'd prefer to return to the old theme, you have the option to do so by clicking the "Theme" button at the bottom of the forums. The old theme will remain accessible until it is buggy, I won't be supporting it anymore. For now, enjoy the Gold and Blue!

    SSL activated on both the main site and forums. A malformed .htaccess file was causing the issue.

    Well, anyway, to get back on track, I'd mostly like to hear big-picture features you guys would like to see added or removed. Reputation is a small thing (a trivial matter, really, regardless of who is asking), whereas Music Monday, as an example, is an actual feature. PurpleGaga's suggestion of adding more polls is something I like to hear. This is an actual content-based feature that can be added to the site, no matter how difficult it may be to come up with the actual polls themselves.

    Good. We can start by kicking you out.

    Lucky them.

    Polls are only useful when we have something to poll about. If we think of something, we might add it. The reputation system is fine, as the others have said. I'm sorry, but it's a solid system, and it's a trivial matter to stop/reverse actual abuse. Revora still has BBCode because they are not fully updated to IPS4, as you can see at the bottom of their forums, they still have the "Community Forum Software by IP.Board" message at the bottom of their forums, which means they are on an older version. W3D Hub tried bringing back BBcode and they have far more experienced coders than I am, and they too, failed. IPS really didn't want to support it any more.
  8. Okay. There's like three different threads where I talk about updates, so I'm going to start focusing on this one. Here are some of the recent changes: The main page has a new theme. The old version was broken in a number of ways, and so I started from scratch on the new theme. It has a bit of a retro feel to it, in my opinion. The forums will have a matching theme soon. You can preview this theme by scrolling to the bottom of any page on the forums, clicking "Theme," and selecting "Blue, Gold theme." Reputation works on this theme! Note - this theme is NOT complete. It is probably 90% complete, there's just a bunch of little details that need to be fixed. The download section has returned, though it is not yet complete. I am still adding downloads to it, but I'm taking a break because I have been working nonstop on this for two days straight. SSL enabled and activated on both the main site and forums. A malformed .htaccess file was preventing HTTPS links from working properly. Features to come soon: More featured games/mods in the rotator on the main page. We want to allow different mod teams to have their game featured. We will have to come up with a standard so that mods have to show some promise before they are put up on the rotator. Possibly allowing the submission of files. There are security issues with uploading so we'll have to approach this concept carefully. Things I'm still working on, but might take longer: Fixing slowdown issues What I want to hear from you guys: Are there any features or content you'd like to see either added to the site or returned to the site? What would we be doing to make you guys want to visit more? What kind of content do you think is just a waste of time and space, because you don't enjoy it?
  9. Updating / Moving CNCNZ.com

    Either I'm blind, or the option to restrict the number of embedded videos has been removed. If anyone finds it, limit it to 2 videos. Anything more should just be in a playlist.
  10. Videos removed. Next time, post them in a playlist.
  11. Seriously, if you're going to post a barrel of videos, put them all in a playlist. There's no reason to lag everyone's computer by posting 46 videos in one thread, in one post.
  12. test post please ignore
  13. Updating / Moving CNCNZ.com

    Definitely not intentional, gotta push that limit back down. As for archived posts not showing up in search results, yes, this is a big issue. I'm going to see if this is something that can be changed, if not, I'll unarchive everything if I can.
