This is a Release Candidate for C&C Retarded v3. This version includes the three Smackdown Units. And a slew of new things.
Note: There is full AI support. Skirmish works perfectly. Also, if you are unable to see any of the epic structures set your Model Detail to High and Shader Detail to medium.
Disclaimer: The Unholy Alliance mega faction has no AI.
Description from Banshee at PPM:
TheGunrun has emailed me few days ago to inform about the first release candidate of C&C Retarded 3. For those who doesn't know what is this mod about, don't judge the book by its cover. The mod wasn't simply made to be stupid. The purpose of the mod is to provide the most entertaining gameplay experience ever for casual players.
It actually uses wicked ideas to make things more fun, including the recently added Smackdown Units, which are a higher level of Epic units. The chono tesla monkey with nuclear bananas are nothing near any of these units. The cash flow of this mod is high, allowing players to build hordes of units even when all tiberium is gone, so buiding smackdown units after paying $10k for a tech center is not a problem.
The mod is downloadable at C&C: FileFront, where you can also watch a trailer, where GunRun used Divine Intervention music from UAW on it. While I love Frank Klepacki's musics, I'm not sure if the UAW ones really match Kane's Wrath. I guess it is a personal thing. Anyway, this mod is here to redefine the word 'Retarded' into something positive and it already has a lot of fans. Check it out, if you are seeking a completely new and fun experience and remember, this is for Tiberium Wars only (doesn't work on KW). Have fun!
