In relation to my amazement of the HL2 engine, some thoughts came up.

Selectable Music - well if possible. it explains itself, just like it was in C&C

Growing Tiberium - probably not much use in an FPS, but if it can be done in a suitable way why not?

High Object Interaction - Not really C&C related at all, its just that I love the picking up ability in HL2, I would like to see this utilised more in Commando, in terms of being able to load supply trucks with ammo, health and such.

since these ideas aren't too exciting, lets hear other ideas for taking advantage of the HL2 engine.

Music Selector - Well, as Valve said it.. "Easy to mod in".. then it should be possible. Definite yes.
Tiberium - Yes. If it can spread, it should able to be depleted as well. More strategy. Go take a risky route near enemy base or go to nearly unexistant tiberium field that is just a walk away?
Object interaction - Yes. What I want is to have multiple uses for a single thing. See that pile of sandbags there? Pick up each of them to make your own sandbag bunker.

In relation to the object interaction thing, Im wondering as a interesting feature, would it be possible to encorporate 'container' objects which you can pop anything you like into, close then pick it up and possibly through another key lodge it in your inventory to be accessed like a weapon? essentially this could be a 'back-pack'

On another note, I heard about this commander mode thing, great idea, as a side-note I was thinking maybe this is how Harvesters could be managed, not through ground players and not 100% reliable on AI but similar to the way they were in C&C, AI does the job but they can be ordered to do anything the commander says so, probably same could go for MCVs if you ever intend going THAT far.

1. I don't see a reason why it wouldn't be possible.

2. Might experiment with that later.

Perhaps December 1st.

I have been messing around in HL2 and I noticed the following:
Passing objects having Doppler effect applied on them - meaning that you when first hear it, it's high-pitched and as it passes by, the pitch goes lower.

Helicopters cause wakes appear when hovering over water.

You guys should be very happy with the tiberium and tiberium Fauna and Flora I model up. I am practicing a little bit and exparamenting in Max. I am confident I can get good looking viceroids for the game.

*dies in middle of a Tiberium field next to a Blossom Tree, mutates into a visceroid and gets eaten by a Tiberium Veinhole*

Very interesting, I hope all of these get implemented somewhere down the line.
