Lion says farewell

After more than a decade of being the webmaster of prominent Command & Conquer fansites, Lion of CNCDEN and RADEN fame has announced he is retiring from the community.  You can read his farewell message on CNCDEN.

It's a shame to have to bid Lion farewell.  He has been a true pillar of the community for years.  RADEN was not simply one of the first Command & Conquer websites I ever visited; it was one of the sources of inspiration that led me to create a fansite of my own.

I'd like to personally thank Lion for his dedication and enthusiastic support over the years.  Please head to CNCDEN and do the same.

We've got a lot to show you today at our in-house mod, C&C 3: The Forgotten. First off, some screenshots showing off new two new units and a structure. You can see the Sidewinder, a light attack jet by Rishi and Kane Nash, below, as well as the Machine Shop, the vehicle production hub brought to life by paimail, Kane Nash, and Tsumetai.


Next up we have two new screenshots of the Jeep, by the very talented Nielsen. They will serve as a light attack unit that specialize in killing infantry.


You can, as always, see more on our media page. As we've said many times, one of our mod's highlights is its immersive story, told with HD full motion video. If you're interested in learning more about that, see this interview I did with chickendippers of CNCWorld. You may also be interested in our second edition of Forgotten Fiction, the add-on series of story "artifacts" we're creating to lend even more depth to our tale. This piece, entitled "From the Journal of Raven Hades," is an e-diary entry by the former intelligence partner of The Forgotten's leader, Salvadore Trogan. Read it here.
