Many new units make the game even
more interesting with their own advantages and disadvantages.
The GDI Power assault armor is a very mobile unit used for offense
and defense. Disc throwers are like long range grenadiers that
throw explosive disc with their bionic arm. Air fighters like
the GDI's ORCA Fighters, and the ORCA Bomber packs a big punch
into enemy fighters or bases. The hover vehicle, Hover MRLS,
moves quickly over terrain while launching missiles at ground
or air units.
Tiberian Sun will use 3D units
and terrain to give the game its real time effect. The 3D in
Tiberian Sun will not use polygons like most other games use,
but use voxels. Voxels are pixels with height, depth, and width.
The one problem with voxels are they can not be rendered with
3D accelerators. So the rendering will have to be done with
the computer's processors. Tiberian Sun sounds like it will
be a great game when it come out with all the new units and
real life features.
