The Soviet Construction Yard for my Red Alert Zero mod;
Both the Allied and Soviet Conyards build their base structures similar to the Empire in RA3- by sending out mobile Construction vehicles to deploy them. However, these vehicles move much faster when inside the build radius, and much slower when outside- so that base building is quick and convenient- while expanding outside more difficult.
Base defenses, walls and probably superweapons are built traditional CNC style (within the Conyard's radius).
As you can see, this is based on my older command center concept- greatly renovated; which I greatly wanted to reuse.
(see it here)[link]
I wanted something substantial (a focal point of the base) and largely symmetrical- but showing both command-center stuff, the vehicle-exit, the construction crane, and lots of machinery and 'CNC Soviet architecture'. I came up with several concepts that didn't quite look right- then I tried re-working those ideas into the unused Command Center artwork, and everything started coming together!
Note- the crane functions differently depending on what is constructed- in both cases, a container is hauled out on that conveyer-belt behind it and it picks it up- but:
-If the structure is a base structure made via MCV- the crane drops the box on the back of the construction vehicle that exits the central gate;
-If the structure is a wall or defense, the crane drops it on the platform to the right which retreats below ground.
