Changelog is here: Moddb.com

I added radar to all construction yards as a temporary solution for this build. As the radar is only available on T3 or higher and this version is only T1 and T2.

Each harvester is uniqe in his own way. The GDI Harvester is the biggest one. It has the biggest storage and is very difficult to destroy, but it is very slow.

The Nod harvester is stealthed, but the stealth module takes up some storage. Health and speed is balanced.

The Cabal Harvester has the smallest storage, but it can hover and has a small laser for defense.

The Forgotten Harvester is very fast, but it's very vulnerable. There's a catch. It can heal on Tiberium, makeing it hard to destroy in fields.

See it more as a heavy support unit for the Cyborg Reapers (which are now T2) as the Reapers main role is AT, but combining their web laucher with the flamethrowers of Dreadfires can deal serious damage for enemy infantry.

BTW "Short Game" option will get a comeback. As we changed the method for 3rd and 4th faction to work properly. This other workaround allows Short Game.

1.9.41+ will support CnCNet4 out of the box too (included in download), so you can play online with Crystallized Doom. CnCNet5 is still not confirmed yet.

Astor Jul 21 2014, 6:09pm says:

I managed to edit the game, to add new things, to fix new broken things, now it's time to fine tune them.

With overhaul it's not meant to change all units - instead it's more like an intense check of each object ingame.

I will go through all animations (snow/desert) checking if each is working as intended.

Voxel units will be adjusted in Z buffer size, so they won't show on top of a power plant smoke exhaust or building.

So it's mostly those annoying small detail things I am going to hunt now down.

The AI will learn that spamming is not the only solution. It will react to player tactics more.

Balance is still a core part, but I want also to do this detail things too, but thats only possible one by one.

ATM this will stay that way, I may change it further later, so that maybe the green/brown look into a more black/steel look, but I have other priorities right now.

My biggest priority is right now to improve the unit's tasks. As many have the same role. I am working out strong/weakness/counter attack possibilities of different units.

The main idea is to make weak units still useful in higher tech levels.

I will show soon a sheet how I work this out!

Astor Feb 14 2014, 1:16pm says:

Showing basic damage of the weapon doesn't make much sense. Damage is also dependent on weapon warhead and enemy armor type. So instead it would be better to just show a weapon name like "120mm AP", "90mm HE", "Rifle", "Rapid Fire Laser" etc.

Any combination ideas? Maybe some kind of suited tactics, like rush, defense, aggressive, recon, support and so on?

Astor Feb 13 2014, 2:07pm replied:

Hmm I don't know, it can't be really done in this game. The engine isn't really suitable to add new features. My mod is already flooded with hacks/tricks to get some things to work, the consequences are that we need to sacrifice things like starting units, a cut down version of the RMG and so on.

About the rest, I see balance and bugfixes a higher priority than new content too.

You know, even in vanilla TS you can get desyncs. Why? One example would be if a players build too much refinaries. It's caused by the tag RandomLoopDelay.

The twinkle animations need that tag because otherwise ALL would play at the same time the whole game (this happens when the game starts, but RandomLoopDelay changes that after the first loop)

Yes I am sure :) with animation test MP games desync after 30sec-5min

Astor Nov 10 2013, 4:26pm says:

The Tiberium twinkle effect animation is already included since 1.9 but is disabled in every version. Mostly because it's only suitable for singleplayer - the huge amount of animations gives you a high desync chance for multiplayer. Each Tiberium cell doeas have an animation, so the game has some work to get them all synced with all players.

But I am going to add this as optional feature for people who play only SP or want to try their luck with MP :P

Astor Oct 4 2013, 10:09pm replied:

You can expect a major balance change, a complete new threat rating logic, redone sound effects, there are new weapon effects (each weapon has it's own unique sound), I am improving again sound mangement/priorities. Also most units have new voices. You may also find building sounds (clicking on buildings).

I did some minor graphic changes, renamed some units with better names, improved/added debris to units. Did some AI editing. The actual dev build has 50 music tracks (more will be added also) - each side will have it's own music style. There is also a new Ionstorm sound (high quality). I reworked the menu interface - which is still WIP.

More or less this looks like there won't be a 1.9.32 release. Instead it's a major 1.9.4 release. I just need time balancing it right and properly adding all features. I won't release anything unfinished like in past.

The mod is also comming with a standalone installer (you will only need the installer, nothing else) and optional packages (HyperPatch, two kinds of ddraw.dll's, music packs).

So yeah...some stuff is coming, but we need more time polishing it for release. So no ETA for release yet (but it's 2013 of course xD).

Stay tuned for more information/media soon!

I personaly would stick to 3 long range cannons with a weak supporting secondary weapon, as it would be very slow. But once in range of your base -> total destruction ;)

First idea was, that this unit would be one of the enemy Mutant Warlords of the campaign, but I think that the Mutants also need something in skirmish to be competetive against the other factions.

The Tripod may be moved to campaign, as it's not fitting very well to the other skirmish units of The Forgotten.

In 1.9.3 all vehicles are now better categorized of their movement type. In 1.9.2 and original TS all units where categorized as wheeled vehicles except reaper (creep) and hover vehicles.

- high base speed
- slow on non asphalt terrain
- can't move on Veins save, but can cross it faster than a walker

- low base speed
- minimal speed disadvantages on terrain except Veins/Tiberium
- can move on Veins save, but very slow

- 100% speed anywhere
- 200% boost when moving forward
- slow speed when turning

- medium base speed
- minimal speed disadvantages on terrain
- can't move on Veins save, but can cross it faster than track vehicles

So as you see each type has advantages or disadvantages.

Yeah, that was the point why it was weaker armored than other cabal buildings. This should make it look like, that cabal power cors are more vulnerable to damage because of their strong energy output.

So there are 3 possible solutions:

-increse cost
-decrease health (keep heavy armor)
-reduce power output

I personally think, using lower health combined with heavy armor is a good compromise.

Astor Apr 15 2013, 5:20pm replied:

I am afraid, but it doesn't make much sense now, because units are being removed, replaced or changed.

An example for this change would be the Triton. In 1.9.2 it was a support unit. In the new version it is now a long range artillery unit. Tick Tanks got a MG as secondary weapon to be more useful as mobile defense.

A lot of units moved from GDI&Nod to Cabal&Forgotten. The Fortress Tank is now a special unit for the Mutants, serving them with another name.

Some mechs which wasn't really needed for GDI neither Nod now found a new home too.

But some did gone completly like the GDI Trooper or GDI Raven (Firefly does a way better job here)

Have you tried HWMonitor? I use it for reading temps on my PC.

If you mean the 40° on the right side? I am not sure but I think it's the sockel temp and not the real temps of your CPU. But if your cores are around 26,5° (all same temps??) I think you can ignore that 40°.

My CPU core temps are on idle 21-28° and sockel is about 22°, but my MB is only 25°.

Your MB is 39° so it fit's with the 40° temp.

Nothing wrong here, but maybe improving case cooling would be useful.

Thanks for the report, it's a known bug. The problem is the game can't handle more than 100 units or buildings on the sidebar. This mod adds quite an amount of them to the game, so if you capture all factions on higher tech levels the game will crash because of that limit.

At the moment I can't do much about it. So you have to pick which faction you need more to caputure (or you pack the MCV's again, so the buildings disappear from the list).
