I finally had the time to make a new release, unfortunately the first post is no longer editable, so I'll just give the link here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/artrev2100/files/Alpha%20version/ARmod_alpha4.wz/download

The mod contains quite a bit of new stuff since last release, like command center, tank factory and research lab, as well as assault gun, ripple rockets, avenger SAM and whirlwind turret.

Big thanks to cnceo and Alpha93 for their contributions

For everyone who is curious about the current state of the mod, here is a quick collection of some newer models:

Yes, that looks quite good. But it does not run as good. It runs very choppy. Warzone needs some optimizations in how polygon models are drawn maybe. O.o

It runs very choppy.

A sign the graphics subsystem is being overloaded. The solution is to do less:
fewer polygons
smaller textures
less eye-candy (like the shadows Jorzi mentions)
fewer units
you get the idea...

At least on my crappy old countryside computer with an nvidia geforce 8600 gt & athlon 64 2GHz the new models & shaders barely stress the computer at all, with the exception of shadows, which are cpu calculated and dependent on vertex count. The only difference is longer loading times due to the amount of textures.

the solution is to merge the I-NoD's branch. :ninja:

Many things from that branch have been merged or implemented differently in master already. And note that it optimizes rendering with the WZM format... So it is not like we could just merge it as it is.

I think I've missed those commits, I subcribed to github's atom :( Anyway, with 2 years old build of this branch running and shadows off, I have pretty good result in performance.
