Ok so this is for people who are interested in combining C&C3 A New Experience with other mods. You CAN actually do it! ;)
To give a quick explanation on how to do it, I will be using Tiberium Essence as an example:

1. Locate and copy all files from the "C&C3 A NEW EXPERIENCE " folder (located in your C&C3 directory), into your Tiberium Essence mod folder.
2. Open "TiberiumEssence_1.4.skudef" with notepad, and add line: "add-config OMEGA_1.0.skudef" (without quotation marks).
3. Save the file and launch Tiberium Essence!

There ya go! Now remember, if you want to use either Delta or Ypsilon instead of Omega, you will need to add either "add-config DELTA_1.0.skudef", or "add-config YPSILON_1.0.skudef" (instead of "add-config OMEGA_1.0.skudef"!) Very easy indeed! ;)

Okey so that should get it working. But I just want to adress a few issues in terms of combining these mods:
Now ingame, the HUD's work fantastic, just as it should! However the menus kinda screw up. Its like the game tries to do a combination of original TE menu, and New Experience menu. For example in DELTA, two background videos will play at the same time, and instead of CABAL in the Skirmish menu, you will instead see the original C&C3 skirmish video. Plus alot of the buttons are blue instead of red. :/
Its quite a shame because the menus made by the Omega team are AMAZING! And it would be nice to be able to experience them in other mods. Ive tried a few things to correct it but since im not so harcore at modding I have yet to succeed. :( But perhaps some genius will figure it out, and please, if you are that genius, post the solution here on the forum! :)

Anyway, remember this is only if you combine these mods. If you play A New Experience on normal C&C3, it should work brilliantly!
This truly is an amazing mod, and it certanly IS a new experience! Congratulations to the Omega team for making such an awesome piece of work! :D

Thank you for your words, and thanks for the tutorial (very well explained). Missing an important step :)

1. Locate and copy all files from the "C&C3 A NEW EXPERIENCE " folder (located in your C&C3 directory), into your Tiberium Essence mod folder.
2. Create a backup of the TiberiumEssence mod.
3. Open "TiberiumEssence_1.4.skudef" with notepad, and add line: "add-config OMEGA_1.0.skudef" (without quotation marks).
4. Finally and most importantly, you have to open the file "tiberiumessence.big" with the "finalbig" program.
delete only the files "gamedata.ini" and "video.ini" and quit save.
5. Launch Tiberium Essence!

P/D: Still need the compatibility patch to see heaven on all maps :)

Thank you for finishing the tutorial! Hehe, i'm not that great a modder myself so its nice of you to help out! :)

I've deleted "video.ini" in "tiberiumessence.big" and it has made several improvements, however, I cant seem to find "gamedata.ini". There are still some overlappings in the mod, probably because of this. But perhaps there is a reason I cant find it? lol XD

Anyway, this Combatibility patch sounds sweet! Do you know when it will be out? :D

If the "gamedata.ini" does not exist... simply does not erase it XD

Mine is working great too! Having a blast with TE! XD
The HUD I use (DELTA) is quite a challenge to learn, but once you have, you will find that its 10 times more effective than vanilla! :D

Yea, that's exactly my opinion, also, I am going to test and see if this is compatible in MP with regular TE instead of NE (because some of my friends cant see the epicness). I see no valid reason they wont work together. :D
