Working on this for PreRA2...

Left is released allied battle lab, middle is a cutout of the old Soviet "tech center" from the pre-release screenshot, right is a fusion I made.

Since I'm using the underground battle lab for soviets (it replaced the tech center later in development), I needed something for Allies since no screenshots exist of their old tech center.

Plus, old Soviet tech center was edited and reused by Westwood to make the allied battle lab, I just don't like what they did with it. It's too rounded and bulbous IMO.

Scroll down for updates.

The last two weeks were pretty busy, but I found the time to make a buildup and work on the damage frame.

Still work in progress, but I'm pretty happy with it so far.

Is this cut, copy and paste or a mix of these and new graphics?

Had to create a lot of custom stuff, e.g., the unfolding wings (buildup) and a complete version of the circular base (buildup / regular / damaged).

Most of the damage on the damage frame is custom as well.

Looks great, I like how the layers extend out horizontally during buildup.

Buildup could use more refining but the damage frame is pretty good.

Buildup and static frames... fixed a lot of problems. Almost ready for prime time!

What made you change the entire center piece of the buliding?

Kinda makes it not the pre-release version remake anymore

SMIFFGIG is right, It doesn't feel like a Soviet Structure.

Hell, you could f*** the middle "allied" bit off alltogether and make it a civilian structure.

The snow on the roof looks to blue IMO & blends into the windows to much.

TBH it looks a little like an alternate Allied Tech Center. I think that's what it's meant to be. (Look at the title)

I dig it, I'd use it personally Smile

I didn't just change the Center piece - I also replaced the base.

Here's why:

No screenshots exist of the old allied tech center / battle lab (if there even was one), so I needed something for the allies. The version that shipped with the game, the allied battle lab, doesn't fit in with the old allied buildings, so I didn't want to use it.

Westwood took the 3D models for the old Soviet "tower" tech center and made it their allied battle lab -- with substantial edits. I'm essentially doing what Westwood did: making an allied version of the Soviet "tower" tech center, but retaining more of the original style.


And since I'm using the "underground" Soviet battle lab (old pic above has the original blurry screenshot and my remake from 2012), the "tower" version was going to go unused unless I did something else with it.

So I did!

Probably should have said all this in my original post for context.  Smile

Hmm, good point. I'll tweak that. Thanks!

Thank you! I'm planning on releasing SHPs for it when it's done.
