Thanks to Keeper for some small assistance editing this.

The Scrin are a power hungry faction that requires succesful engagements to maintain their units in full shape, they are dependant their air power, which is meant to be the strongest on the game, besides that, some of their units are flexible.

Traits:
    -Scrin Infantry are completely immune to the effects of Tiberium radiation whether they are positive or negative.
    -Scrin Ground units start with half their possible health.
    -The only method the Scrin commanders have to heal their ground forces is by combat, units killed by Scrin weaponry release an aura the Scrin call essence, which can be collected by any alien unit nearby to restore its health slowly.
    -Scrin aircraft auto repair.


Legend:
    -Landing Zone -> Barracks
    -Forge -> War factory.
    -Stargate -> Air Factory.
    -Laboratory -> Tech Center.

Good stuff... though the Tripod being the only Scrin Unit with more grey colors does distract me...

Yeah, I reckon both the Tripod and Stormrider (ironically the only C&C3 Scrin units in the mod) need to be redone to look more like the rest of the Scrin units.

Also, I'm surprised the MCV is in that list, but not the Harvester, especially given that the Scrin have a unique Harvester...

Nolt: you want a bigger or different colored tripod? I can do the changes and send you all the raw frames (SHP-conversion and pixel fine-tuning in SHP Builder would be up to you them)

the creation engine is interesting. how do you gave it an animation while standing still and how do you made it stand still in midair without auto-landing on the closest free cell?


btw, please don't rescale the images. keep them all in the original ingame size.

I thought it's very well visible that this is an OpenRA mod. And when it comes to that, you've been told already, these are not rescaled images.



The flying factory is just a helicopter with LandWhenIdle: false and having the ProductionQueue or PrimaryBuilding trait (unsure if Nolt went with classic prodqueues or individual ones).

Wasn't obvious for me from the pictures that this is OpenRA

Pixel Doubling is like rescaling to me. Only difference, it's done by the game and not by some picture editor.
And in this topic, the sizes are bad to get when you see some pictures in doubled size and others in normal size.

Just for me, to get a real size comparison.

hmm, the tripods size actually looks quite fitting

I agree, the turn rate is too slow, I will have to make it faster. jk

The tripod size is fine, I could use a purple colored Tripod if you are willing to make it.

Hm, I forgot, I did not consider it important, tho I may add it later here.

The Shapeshifter is clearly using the original unittem. Good luck forcing all these shades of pink and blue (as seen on the powerplant buildup) into it.

It was that obvious. http://ppmforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=41763 makes it more visible though, but if you see and not just look, you should have noticed on your own.
