The US Command Center is a large building, and its a bit tricky getting it to fit in right with YR.  So I'm experimenting with a few different layouts.  the gif has an enormous 5x5 structure, and then I've chipped it down to 5x4, and then two 4x4 options.

I like the larger 5x4 version, 4x4s looks incomplete without the extra parts on the side & 4x4b looks to squished together IMO.

The anim for the radar dish has acceleration/decceletation at the start/end, I'd recommend turning that off so it rotates at a consistent speed.

Having the dozer deliver the crate is a really nice touch Very Happy

I think that it looks really impressive and is laid out well as 5x4. As a bonus, it is unique for one more reason because of it. I think it looks good as 4x4, but the bigger one just really looks like a command center.

Going to stick with the 5x4 one.  Updated the dozer anim to place the crate on a trap door.  Now to do a buildup...

I would add more detail to the door, it looks like a simple gradient.

pretty good. looks like you need to set the interpolation on the satellite anim to
linear from bezier. also, your dozer animation has different lighting than the building

try using the ini tag 'ZShapePointMove=' to fix that clipping issue with the bottom of
your building

Hmm, the damage looks more like melted plastic then concrete & steel :/ I'd recommend putting actual holes in the model instead of just warping the geometry.

I did this for my models by simply subdividing the mesh & then randomly deleting small sections to add damage.

Yeah, I see it.  The original model has a deform in it like a very heavy pole fell on the top of the main structure and I tried to recreate it, but a little more craftsmanship is called for here.

*Plays game of Zero Hour*

Ah yeah I can see what you were aiming for now, If you want to make the damage accurate to the original game then it looks good. I think you have the skills to make it look a lot more interesting though, but it's up to you.

i suggest using booleans to make some big holes in the structure, and
then placing broken walls and junk inside the hole so players can see
the inside of the ruined building. dont be hesitant to really demolish it

I'll come back to the damage frame.  Blender has a plug in that I've used before called "Cell Fracture" which is a quick and easy way to take chunks out of a mesh.  Anyways, I've turned my eye to the power plant.  The foundation wasn't exactly 2x2 or 2x3, so I'm playing with proportions/scaling to see what looks right.  Need to make the big block of concrete in the middle more interesting, but its coming together

My first question is what is the power source/type that represents? I mean it's not nuclear, and it's not petroleum based, sooo what is it? Some electric eels in a tank? Radioactive algae? Some guys furiously jerking off to porn?

Pretty good, but you should add some ambience, like spinning safety lights when it opens or a puff of smoke from the chimneys.

Also what are those two panels on the side?

The Generals war factory had two side doors with conveyor belts leading into them.  I just made them side doors to add a little more visual interest to that side.  Smoke is a good idea, and that's only a few lines of code.

My only criticism of the factory is that the ladder on the side of the building looks oversized & out of scale with the rest of the rest of the building's elements. I'd suggest making it half the width & double the amount of steps. Other then that it looks great & fits nicely with the other buildings Smile

Pretty good but can you actually use it as a combo helipad/airport? I mean it seems more like a civilian structure/decoration.

By default aircraft face north-east when they land so it might look better if you flip the building the other way around so the aircraft line up with the runway.

My modding partner wants to start with the full size, but I think I'll make a modified version that cuts most of the tarmac and helipad and is squeezed into a 3x3 structure.  But I do like having the full sized one for mission maps to make AI bases look better.

We're using a couple engine extensions, so the aircraft facing seems to be worked out.

Redoing the Command Center damaged version and then onto the Strategy Center

I like it!

I might suggest moving the remap elsewhere though, since you are putting something else on top of it.

Umm why would the damaged version have sandbags? That isn't consistent with WW art...?

Also it might be a small thing but I would fill the hole in the front room where you have background showing through the roof, it doesn't appear to be a spot where you'd see through.

There are four different versions of this building, I was particularly happy with with sandbag one.  As for the blue bleed through, that will be fixed in SHP builder.

The detention center - featured in Generals and then dropped in Zero Hour.  Spot light is a work in progress - I wanted to give it some sort of animation to look more alive.

Very good, aside from the spotlight, it's too small to see what's going on but looks weird.

How do you plan to use it, grinder, reverse engineer, generic tech building?

Yeah, still working on improving the spotlight.  Might even render it as 4x4 for some mission maps.

Right now its something of an extra tech building, with some support powers tied to it.  They got rid of it in ZH since it was kinda useless, or at least redundant, but I still want to make the whole set.

Which camera angle are you using? I can't get it aligned.

How is your art so good? Your blender 3d program is like a really bad drug trip. I can't get any of the angles to line up right...

(A year later)
I was wrong. It's not like a bad drug trip.
