I want to add 2-3 new infantry to each faction, to bulk out that area.

I got a couple of ideas myself, and want to see what you think, feel free to post your own ideas.


PDF

Hover Marine
Basicly a standard Rifle Marine with a hover engine equiped to his back. This engine will be switchable, when off the unit is slow than the regular rifle marine but is capable of fireing, when on he is fast and able to cross water but is unable to shoot.

DS

Stealth Trooper
Name's in the title. This is a light unt equiped with the stealth generation unit found in the Stealth APC. Unlike all the basic infantry stealth, this one uses technology so it is undetectable by sight/smell, so will not be found by infantry. He's also able to move and remain stealth, only fireing will reveal him

As for the hover infantry, I'd say give it a slightly better weapon. A slower firing rifle perhaps? And be able to move rapidly at all times but cannot shoot while moving. Want to keep the infantry simplified since you need more infantry to be effective against vehicles, and tediously microing infantry to stop boosting and to fire will cost precious seconds.

Don't certain species of big cat rest or hide in trees in anticipation of their prey, or just to clean it? I'm pretty sure you could implement that somehow. Maybe a Panther unit could become stealthed while hiding in a tree, making it prudent for other factions to watch their step in forested regions.

This might be codeable if you use the elf stealth logic from BFME II. It would make for a very interesting concept especially for a C&C mod.

I've never played any of the BfME games, so i have no idea what logic you're talking about.

In BFME II, elves become stealthed when near trees.

How about:
medical infantry? In RA1 I used them all the time, it was really helpful. plus you can set up missions were they get only 1 commando and 3 medics.
A technician. repairs vehicles (and possible buildings without expending the unit, but does so slower)
Flamethrower/sprayer unit. A close range anti-infantry Higher end unit
A suicide unit like in generals, a unit whose sole purpose is to run into an enemy and explode
A scout A relatively cheap unit with low health, weak weapons, and a large visibility range. May be cloaked.
A dig-in unit A unit who can only shoot while dug in, but once dug in does a lot of damage to both infantry and light armor.
Dampener A unit that when deployed, weakens all nearby enemies. useful in prolonged firefights, where both sides are constantly supplying, so one side gains an advantage.

How about these? I hope the infantry ideas are still open.

No. Each faction has their own method of repairing vehicles.

This is too much like the basic BatV unit.

FoV have this as a drone.
