5 Years of Generals Gentlemen

The best-known Command & Conquer shoutcasting duo, Generals Gentlemen, celebrates 5 years since their first video today! Their story is one of great success, as they currently have around 18 thousand subscribers, just over 5 million cumulative views, and most importantly, TheMachine got a job as lead designer for Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation at Stardock Entertainment. Their channel is still active and ranges from their usual lineup of Zero Hour, Company of Heroes 2, and Dawn of War II: Retribution casts, to occasional dives into other games like Red Alert 3, Ashes of the Singularity, Rise of Nations, OpenRA and Total Annihilation. Congratulations!

Along with the new year comes a new feature, Nmenth’s Research Lab is where I take a look at the technology used in the Command & Conquer series and compare it to how it would work in reality.

A new technology will be explored in Nmenth’s Research Lab on the first Monday of every month. For the month of January, it is Lasers and Prisms. Return next month on the 5th when I take a closer look at the Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP).

2017 – A Year in Review

2017 - A Year in Review

For the first time since 2010, CNCNZ.com brings you A Year in Review, a special article which sums up all the important news from the Command & Conquer community in the past year, month by month. It can also be used to silence the voices who say nothing ever happens in the community. Click here to read the full article.

We’ve also restored the previous iterations of A Year in Review (the reasoning of their removal is still unknown to me): 2008, 2009, and 2010.

The standalone Renegade mod called Expansive Civilian Warfare (ECW for short) just got its first release since it came under W3D Hub’s roof in 2015. It is the successor of the map Roleplay2, and includes a huge open world in which players can do whatever they choose, from taking jobs, driving hundreds of vehicles, buying estates, interacting with wildlife, and more. The full description can be found in the original announcement, while Testament released a handy tutorial that is recommended reading. You can download ECW through the W3D Hub Launcher the same way as you can Red Alert: A Path Beyond and Tiberian Sun Reborn.

The results are in for the Players’ Choice part of this year’s Mod of the Year and Indie of the Year awards in the Released category, which was, however, scheduled for Friday. In the Mod of the Year, the C&C community was made proud once again – we got Twisted Insurrection in 3rd place and Dawn of the Tiberium Age (both for Tiberian Sun, standalone) in 8th place. Honourable mentions went to Mental Omega APYR (for Yuri’s Revenge), Contra, Rise of the Reds (both for Zero Hour), and Tiberium Essence (for Tiberium Wars). In the Indie of the Year awards, no C&C-related projects made it.

Congratulations go to all C&C projects in this year’s awards in all categories!

CNCNZ.com Game Night #3

CNCNZ.com Game Night #3

It’s time for another CNCNZ.com game night! The intent is 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.

We will be playing Kane’s Wrath via C&C:Online on Saturday, 30 December 2017 at 18:00 GMT. Information, rules, and links to guides to set up your game are in this thread. Be sure to prepare your game before the event!

Due to technical issues on my end (the host) and the end of a confirmed player, this will be postponed for a week or two, but will be on a Friday not to conflict with GameReplays tournaments which are already scheduled for weekends until the end of March.

Albeit belated, the results are in for the Editors’ Choice part of this year’s Mod of the Year and Indie of the Year awards. There were no C&C projects mentioned in the Indie of the Year, and only one mod was mentioned in the Mod of the Year picks – it’s Tiberium Secrets (for Tiberium Wars) with the Continuing Legacy Award.

Both award events have two more important dates scheduled. On December 27th, we will know the winners of the Players’ Choice pick in the Unreleased category, and on the 29th, in the Released category.
