Expand and Exterminate is a modification for TA spring. Primarly it's done by one man named Fang, who has done it all by scratch every once in a while asking for help by the community. EE ( expand and exterminate) is constantly updating.

"This is a FAQ for Expand and Exterminate as well as a brief history of the project where it started from and some background fluff.
Q:What is Expand and Exterminate?
A:Expand and Exterminate is a mod created by Fang with help from several dozen other people which is based loosely on the games Earth 2150, and Earth 2160. The game started as a project for Me to make my own mod and test crazy ideas with weapons. It expanded into a almost semi Total Conversion based on Earth 2150/2160. The goal of this mod was to create a game atmosphere that felt post modern, while still being believable. The gameplay was intended to be fast paced and tactical with a focus on unit group composition and expansionist gameplay with defences being religated to a fairly reduced role in favor of an offense focused gameplay.
Q:Why no metal makers?
A:While these are in TA games and varients on TA I feel that they actually reduce your strategic options. Metal makers allow a player to sit put and expand their economy without actually taking a risk and gaining more territory. While some games may want this dynamic I dislike it. I prefer that people only be able to expand their economy by moving away from their main base and gaining more terrain/resources. This encourages more fighting early and often through out the game and means that stalemates are less likely to happen as any loss in terrain is a loss in economy. The other reason is that I feel that this system replicates somewhat the game pace of THQ's Dawn of War which I liked alot as it lead to lots of skirmishes and battles across the map.
Q:Why do all the units look so similiar, I cant tell them apart!?
A:The units look the same because this game is based on Earth 2150/2160 and I wanted to go with a similiar mechanic. In Earth 2150 you could switch weapon loadouts on the same chassis to create a different unit and I liked this mechanic alot, it also I felt gave a lot of uniformity to the different sides. It also I feel gives..........."

The map is now available on EU, NA, SEA and on KR servers. Also SEA and KR have translated versions.
The map is getting popular again in EU and it is quite popular in KR.
From now I will start working again on this project, first adding a team vs team mode, than improving guide system. Than I will start further polishing the game and adding stuff.
Also I still looking for any cool spaceships models to replace Starcraft 2 models.
