Throwback Thursday for 5th October

Recommended Posts

In today's Throwback Thursday, we remember one of the most well-known cancelled features in a Command & Conquer game - the Dropship loadout system that was to appear in Tiberian Sun. By this idea, the campaign missions were to feature a structure called the Dropship Bay (which still has its art and rules in the game files, but with missing art coding), which would have been a drop point for Orca Dropships that would have held the units the player chose before a mission as reinforcements. Contrary to popular belief, this feature was not cut due to time constraints, but, according to Tiberian Sun producer Rade Stojsavljević in a 2000 article for Gamasutra, simply because the team felt it was unnecessary. The Dropship Bay itself was recycled as the Upgrade Center. A modified version of the first GDI mission which has this feature enabled (without the Dropship Bay) can be found in the downloads section of the XCC home page.

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.
