2032: Cabal was defeated by the combined forces of GDI and Nod. However, the destruction of the Core did not mean the alliance would last forever. Kane was dead, the Brotherhood scattered without a main leader. With no leader to follow, this made them an easy target for GDI.
2035: After multiple assaults in Nod-controlled territories, the Global Defense Initiative declared that the Brotherhood of Nod was finally defeated. After their victory, the task forces were split into three main groups. These three groups were:
Each group had a main task. While the Global Defense Force defended the last Tiberium free zones called Blue Zones and slowly expand to Yellow Zones to fortify them, ZOCOM reclaimed Tiberium infested Red Zones back and kept tabs on culling hostile Tiberium mutants and life forms.
The Steel Talons however - were ordered to take control of previously owned Nod territories and eliminate any hostile threats. GDI and its 3 sub organizations had been progressing with their intended missions until growing tensions between populations living on the fringes of Red Zones and within Yellow Zones started to boil over. Eventually, these actions would explode into volatile acts of rebellion and resistance.
2039: The Forgotten, mutated humans who lived hidden in these Zones had united under a large armed front to repel and destroy GDI presence in their territories. Surprised by the Mutants, GDI had to react.

Project Perfect Mod community
time is passing by and CD has grown a lot since the first step it took with the movement to OpenRA. Several thousands crashes, over hundreds of updates and an insane amount of test games we reached our current state.
At the moment we have GDI, Nod, Cabal and Forgotten fully playable in our 0.6.034 build. Including 3 subfaction for GDI, 3 doctrines for Nod and multiple customization options for Forgotten. Cabal is meant to be simple straightforward without anything special.
Scrin and Seraph will be pushed to post 1.0 for the sake of love for the original classic factions. They will be introduced first in campaign missions and later down the road as fully playable multiplayer/skirmish factions. Scrin will have two subfaction options. The Seraph on the other side will be very unique and very much unit ability focused with a commander system (there will be more information on that once the time has come). But for now the base factions have priority over the alien ones.

Over the time we have build up a nice community, be it people who came from the original TS mod or old and new OpenRA players. Their skill level is also as colorful mixed as a rainbow can be. Casuals, competetive, coop or singeplayer vs AI.
ATM there is no download for the OpenRA build/mod here on moddb, this is saved for the proper public 1.0 release. But you can still gain access to the latest version of Crystallized Doom.
We also made a custom launcher for CD which will make sure that you always have the latest required custom OpenRA engine we build on (based on the official OpenRA bleed and Graions AttacqueSuperior engine extensions) and the latest mod version changes. It works for Windows, Linux and MacOS
For people who can not host their own games, we also provide auto updating servers for you to play.
(ATM a number of 10 servers)
Right now the launcher is only available through our community discord server, till we move into a full blown out public build release (then you will be able to download it here on moddb too).
The reason for this move is to keep it still somewhat under control, till it is more polished and refined for a bigger audience.

The mod is already in a good playable state when it comes to gameplay - but we still are not there where we want it to reach yet. We will welcome any new players who want to give it a try and are very happy to hear feedback from new faces. So far the response has been very motivating and positive.
So don't hesitate if you want to try the current build out, feel free to contact us. As for people who expect a total package - I recommend for them to wait for the pure public release, as it will have way more content and improvements.
We are looking forward and very excited for the upcoming features for Crystallized Doom!
