    So, I haven't seen anyone pumping out ideas and recs for one of the forerunners of the RTS genre so... let's have some fun.

    To start things out, one of my ideas:

    Xenonauts 1/Tiberium Dawn

    It has been decades since the Praetorian Invasion, decades since half a billion people died in that horrid war, decades since the world was bathed in fire and lightning, decades since the Xenonauts attempted a hell-marry plan to ensure humanity survives. Things have changed then. Surprises have been discovered, the Xenonauts became the Global Defense Force, and mankind shifted.

    So in 2020, a strange asteroid managed to bypass interception and land in the Tiber River valley in Italy... unleashing an alien material that even got the scientists within the Xenonauts stumped...

    ... just as a new organization -the Brotherhood of Nod- shows up on the world stage, causing chaos as it spreads the material around the world.

    So begins... a Tiberium Dawn.

    Yuriko with a sensable childhood would be an interesting thing...
    ... or it could be some orphan that the soviets gave the Romanov name to after they exterminated the entire Romanov family to the last just to be sure that there wouldn't be anyone to be used as political collateral... given that the player character in World in Conflict: Soviet Assault's soviet missions was also named Romanov.

    "Although an aristocrat and a member of the communist party, Romanov was an advocate of peace." - Red Alert 2 installation briefing.
    Seems evidence he's aristocrat,
    Enough justification for Anastasia crossover with family reunion element anyhow :p

    That... goes against what happened in real life. [stares blankly into the screen about the horrors the Bolsheviks did to all the nobility they could get their hands on] ... ok then...

    It's an interesting development because without experiments Yuriko would still be a terrifying powerhouse.
    Her attempting to navigate utterly mundane situation in spite of her overwhelming power.

    So... basically Superman/One Punch Man? That could work...

    A crazy idea: basically due to SHENANIGANS, GDI gets a portal in a blue zone... that leads straight into Remnant. Derails ensue.

    Better yet Izumi and Yuriko's daily slice of life. Global superpowers pretend they don't notice.

    That would be great if it weren't for the fact that the setting would have the Imperialists running Japan and not the Old Men faction...

    Also, GDI showing up in Remnant would be interesting right? ;)

    World lacking a Tiberium versus place without Grimm yet neither is particularly better.
    Huzzah for everyone on both sides perpetually getting punked by plots of immortals.

    True, but GDI fighting the Grimm would be a spectacle to behold... especially when they simply send feedstock through the portal. ;)

    Should we count Kane Video Biopic like a fanfiction?

    Equivalent from Remnant on Earth is unlocking Havoc's Aura.

    So, been playing with all sorts of ideas for CnC and I've come upon the anime BNA (Brand New Animal) and an idea came up based on my personal 'remake' CnC Tiberium (where Kane and Nod, in general, is a... frienemy... of GDI).

    Due to a series of events, the various Beastmen get revealed to the world after staying (largely) quiet for untold centuries. Soon afterward, racism against Beastmen ramps up to previously not-seen-since-the-rise-of-the-Nazis levels. This causes forced segregation across the world with some areas of the world undertaking genocides of their Beastman populations and in an odd twist of irony, the Brotherhood of Nod and GDI agree on something and that something is stoping these genocides. While Nod simply makes the genociders disappear and get the genocided to GDI strongholds, GDI simply obliterates any third world government that tries and turns them into GDI administrated zones. In the first and 2nd world countries, GDI administrates the various 'Beastman cities'... leading to various discoveries...

    Am I crazy or am I making things interesting? You decide!

    Generalissimo, crazy snippet coming through with Brand New Animal...

    (___________________________________________________________________________________________)
    Sanctuary City 15, Japan; April 22nd, 2035

    I've always hated Sanctuary City work, it is always showing the worst of humanity. Between governments that would rather let their populations simply carry out genocides, populations that ignore their governments in Nazi-like activities, and more, we've got our hands full. ... and now we've got a call to stop a racial killing in progress. One of the drones sighted a group of skinheads attacking one of the buses, specifically chasing a raccoon dog looking beastwoman that had been riding on top of said bus.

    "Are the roadblocks set up?" I asked as the CTH-01s maneuvered through the treeline as it was escorted by LAH-01s, "I don't want these idiots somehow getting past us and causing havoc or, god forbid, getting discovered by Nod." Nod had been particularly vicious against the racists, more so than usual. Nod had stopped genocides in Africa before with such brutality that it is hard to imagine Nod being even more brutal...

    "Yep and we've got infantry squads in the forest nearby just in case and... What the... shots fired. Looks like a mix of pistols and crossbows."

    "We're moving in," I ordered, "Pilots, full speed. The objective is to arrest these idiots if possible, stop them before they start injuring civilians by any means necessary if unable. I don't want another Sanctuary 13 on our hands."

    "Rodger."

    "Wilco."

    "Understood."

    "Affirmative."

    The helicopters spread out into a loose double echelon formation and surged forward. We were quickly upon them, two of the CH-01s had their dismounts repel down and secure the vehicle while two of the LAH-01s gave cover. My CH-01 and its partner maneuvered towards the forest as some of the skinheads chased the raccoon dog beastwoman into the forest...

    __________________________

    An errant pistol round bounced off my suit's armor plate as my platoon-mates moved in. Our company commander said it best, Sanctuary City assignments are the worst assignments for they display the worst of humanity on a near-daily basis. If it wasn't the various skinheads, it's Nod making examples of said skinheads and if it isn't Nod making examples, it is various terrorist groups and megacorporations that test our patience with humanity. This situation, however, is skinheads getting stomped on by us with an innocent in the middle. Just about one of the worst situations to face.

    We manage to get into visual contact with the skinheads and their target, just as several helicopters managed to get overhead.

    "GDI! Drop your weapons and put your hands behind your head!" I barked, "Do as we say and we won't fill you with holes!" One of the skinheads simply laughed at the order and started pointing their weapons at us despite the fact that they wouldn't be even scratch the paint.

    "So, you think you order us around?" the leader responded with a psychotic grin on his face, "We're untouchable, so just let us kill this bitch and we'll be on our way." I simply gave the HUD signal to move my squad between the skinheads and their target.

    "We can't let you do that," I retorted, "Are you hard of hearing? We're GDI, not some police precinct that you can bully into submission to look the other way. So, just do what we say and your blood won't be painting the forest."

    "... and if we don't do it your way?" the leader asked with a confident smirk.

    "Well, that would be resisting, and that would mean you'll get a first look at how outclassed you are fighting power armor in the best-case scenario," I riposted back, "If you resist with your weapons, then you'll be dead and what remains won't be able to be fitting in a shoebox. I should know, we've already had a few of your kind try to create a mess here and paid that price for their shenanigans." I smirked as several of the skinheads shivered. "You better surrender without a fight, because it'll only get worse from here."

    "Figures," the leader spat, "let's show them why we get our way." That was when they produced mil-spec grenades and were about to arm them when 9.5mm bullets ripped through them as the LAH-01s fired their machineguns. My squad simply shook their heads in annoyance and the stupidity of it all.

    "Why do nine out of ten of these idiots always take the 'you die' choice," I complained as my XO took a look at the beastwoman, "tell City Director Neumann that we've got another PR situation going to be coming to his desk." Then I look at the beastwoman. "Also get Medical on the horn, tell them we might have another HTBV*."

    "Understood. Director Neumann is so going to blow out our ears when he hears about this..."

    Ah, also one of your images is borked.

    EDIT:
    So that is why you are practically MIA for the last few weeks. ;) Good to see that you're keeping busy...
