Command & Conquer (a.k.a. Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn or simply C&C/C&C1; the game is also often unofficially called Command & Conquer 64 for the Nintendo 64 port) is a 1995 real-time strategy video game produced by Westwood Studios for MS-DOS and released internationally by Virgin Interactive. It was the first of twelve games to date to be released under the title Command & Conquer; six subsequent titles having since continued the story set as sequels with one acting as a prequel, along with the production of several spin-off games. Met with universal acclaim by consumers and critics, Command & Conquer was released for seven separate platforms along with becoming the initiator of the Command & Conquer franchise, and today generally is considered as the title which originally defined and popularized the modern real-time strategy genre.

14 comments by Milanium on Jun 30th, 2015

Work has been progressing well on our next development cycle, and we are today making a snapshot of this work available in the form of a new playtest release. playtest-20150628 focuses on behind-the-scenes improvements, but also includes a collection of new features and bug fixes.

The most visible changes in this playtest include:

  • Removed the “Enemy unit detected” notification, by popular demand.
  • A collection of TD balance changes based on player feedback. [#8303]
  • Use the repair cursor or order a unit to a repair depot. In D2K a carryall will pick up the actor. [#8056]
  • Units built from the starport in D2K now work with the “select units by type” hotkey. [#8212]
  • Improvements to the player name and color validation. [#8137, #8380]
  • New missions: Nod06b, Nod06c (TD), Soviet02a, Soviet05 (RA), Atreides01a, Atreides01b (D2K).
  • A collection of polish fixes for maps, tooltips, and unit artwork.

On the technical front, improvements include:

  • A collection of fixes for issues found using Coverity Scan.
  • Several new lint tests to detect common YAML errors in maps and mods.
  • Changes towards a more consistent set of rendering traits. [#8171]
  • A Significant rework of the shroud code to prepare for TS shroud and scripted map area changes.
  • Improved support for compiling and running OpenRA on BSD operating systems.
  • Improvements to our Lua API for map authors.

For the full changelog, please refer to the changelog page on our wiki.

Our new in-game map editor has also received a collection of bug fixes, and the ability to view and edit the area outside the playable map area. The old map editor (which we inadvertently broke in the last release - sorry!) has been removed.

If you encounter any problems or bugs (especially anything related to the shroud or any new crashes), then please let us know on our bug tracker or the comments below.

Red Alert Soviet05 screenshot

Press CTRL + P to take a screenshot. The hotkey binding is configuarable via Settings - Input.

Carryall repair delivery

Use the repair cursor in D2K to signal a Carryall to transport an actor for repair!

New map editor

The new map editor is more stable, and updated maps now show correctly in the map selection screen.

TS Shroud

A preview of things to come: work is nearly complete on rewriting the shroud logic to support terrain height.

How did they "ruin" anything? All they did was take CNC beyond the level of this game and actually did new things with it. If anything Westwood ruined CNC.

how can you say something like that, Command and Conquer is a classic, unlike you i still prefer red alert 2/Yuri's Revenge. well most likely, the thing is that, really most of the technology in previous red alert, tiberium games do not exist in tiberium wars or red alert 3. that was a major disappointment to me and probably many other fans, i mean where did it all go, the mechs, the giant mechs, the strange creatures that live in tiberium, etc. it bothers me to this day

He's half/right, EA is a publisher, it is not the developer after the RA2/Yuri's Revenge, it was EALA that developed Generals & up. Repeatedly slamming EA doesn't make much sense. Now the gameplay was getting a little stale with every entry into the series, and technically Westwood did sell themselves out and stop making C&C games with the release of Renegade and Earth & Beyond. It does not mean that RA2 or YR were necessarily bad games, but the last ones to include genuine improvements to the gameplay, such as units barricading themselves in buildings, and secondary function such as the infantry for the allies. So basically what he is saying is stop blaming EA, it is only a publisher, not the developer.

ea took westwood and pretty much ended the company. westood DIDNT TOUCH ANYTHING PAST RA2! ea put their own programmers and writers in and added what they thought was good instead of making another actual addition to C&C. so yes, ea can be blamed for this turd people call C&C now. if they put in better people or didnt wreck westwood we wouldnt be having this argument.

and yes westood sold themselves, but we can still yell at ea for making crap games with their work!

@airborneSn1p3r, you can get Skirmish, just go into Network and host a LAN game, then just click on the bots option and start the game.
If you didnt understand that...sorry rofl, but mess with the Network mode.
I've done it before.

It is impossible to enable skirmish with AI in C&C1, that would mean hacking in an AI. And that's impossible.

This game was released before "skirmish" even existed ;)
