The noble Atreides, the insidious Ordos and the evil Harkonnen. Only one house will prevail.... This forum is for the discussion of Intelligent Games' C&C inspired recreation of Westwood Studios' Dune 2.
You are right about the mod makes the game loses its "identity" but isn't that the whole point of modding? Every C&C has its own modding scene, it was something that people were encouraged to do to bring life to the modding community. People mod games if the original isn't how they envisioned it. Red Alert 2 has the YR balance patch thing, Tiberian Sun has the veteran patch, even Red Alert's slower tank production option here is a mod that changes the game.
Don't get me wrong chem, I agree with this not being "the real game" and how experienced players skills are not relevant in this, but that rant seems a bit melodramatic as if there's a personal grudge. I've seen worse mods at moddb, this one is an option and it doesn't divide the TD players.
There is no way to have only the weapons factory buff, they all come in a package. The remaster balance mod isn't so bad because it only nerf the APC slightly and speed up cargo plane in addition to the WF armor, it's the other changes that we can't disable that ruins it for me and they also affect singleplayer but I guess I got used to it already.
