The Dawn of the Tiberium Age is a stand-alone Tiberian Sun to Tiberian Dawn (C&C 95) and Red Alert total conversion which aims to allow people to both play and mod TD and RA, while having all of the benefits of the TS engine.
Since this is a stand-alone mod, you don't require anything but the mod itself to be able to play: the original game is not required.

DTA's classic mode aims to mimic Tiberian Dawn's and Red Alert's gameplay as closely as possible, while the enhanced mode adds many new features and balance improvements. The TD and RA factions are all at your disposal, so you're able to for example have matches between Nod and Soviet or mix it up however you like.

This mod is still actively being worked on, so you can expect frequent updates and if you find any bugs, please report them so that we can fix them as soon as possible.

We've jump-started the new year this month with 3 updates for DTA. We've included new features, gameplay fixes, additional maps and new toys for mappers.

Over the last 2 years we've got multiple requests for LAN multiplayer support. Thanks to CnCNet's great performance I didn't consider it important enough, but a group of donators managed to convince me otherwise and so, this often-requested feature has now been implemented. Since it was implemented only recently and it's difficult to test LAN alone, it works but is still in a somewhat beta state. So, if you spot any bugs, be sure to report them so I'll be able to fix them!

Our client's looks have also got an overhaul in the latest update, in all themes. We've ditched the standard Windows borders to make room for our own, in all windows except for the game lobby. The default theme only has a 1-pixel silver border in all windows, but the change is more significant in the Classic theme and the Soviet and Allied themes. You can enable these themes in the game options menu.

If you've played DTA, you might've got annoyed by a certain bug. Units that automatically fired at enemies went to chase after those enemies when the enemies got out of the units' firing range. It was common to see your artillery heading into the enemy base because of this bug, even when you didn't order them to do so. This bug has been plaguing the TS engine for 16 years, but thanks to AlexB, it is now fixed. You can now rely on your long-range units staying where you ordered them to stay.

We've also fixed another bug of less importance, namely that if you capture all sides' production facilities on a naval map, DTA would crash. This is because the game engine cannot handle more than 75 icons on the sidebar, and would crash when the limit was exceeded. Now, instead of crashing, the game simply won't show more than 75 icons. This means that you can now safely have control of all 4 factions' technology on naval maps.

City scenery

I mentioned new toys for mappers. These are paved roads, pavement additions, new trains, a huge crater and more ice floes. Of these, the most significant are the pavement additions and new paved roads; as you can see above, they allow us to create much better looking cities.

And there can't be a chain of DTA update without new maps, right? During this month we've added one new Co-Op mission (Ally Under Siege) and one new standard multiplayer map (Coastal Path Revisited).

Aside from that, we've improved the smoothness of the CnCNet lobby and fixed half a dozen issues in maps, some of them more serious than others. You can view the full change log of our updates (the latest 3 and everything before them) on our change log page.
You can download the latest version from our download page if you don't already have DTA installed; if you do have it installed, the client will automatically download and install the latest update for you.

We hope these updates will give you lots of fun when you command and conquer the battlefield this year. See you there!

Im really enjoying the environment factors, like certian critters and tiberium spreading

Can you guys make more maps like coastal path revisited?

That depends on whether Lin Kuei Ominae (the author of Coastal Path Revisited) will make more maps like it. At some point he probably will, although he doesn't make maps that often.

This mod is amazing! Played it over LAN with 2 friends today, alternating between Twisted Insurrection and DTA, and both are fun and extremely well made.

New map features like aqueducts or usable trains and ferries are great additions, including the trains acting funny as the war rages on. :) And we can finally build the X-O Powersuit!

It's likely caused by your anti-virus.

Where are the trains and what do they do exactly?
Are they merely moving props?

They're basically toys for mappers. The new map, Coastal Path Revisited, uses them a lot. The trains simply move on tracks in a specific scripted way, nothing else. You can load infantry on some trains though, so they can be used for transporting infantry across the map.

Can they be destroyed?

Yes. Dante's Desert, Frosty Lake, Tiber and Trinity also use the new trains by the way.

The Dawn of the Tiberium Age: ****: Look For the Dawn Dawn of the Tiberium Ages (DTA) is a Tiberian sun mod that looks to recreate the game that started it all, Tiberian Dawn. In that regard, DTA is a massive success, with the mod capturing the look, spirit and feel of the original game. It does not stop there however, as DTA takes Tiberian Dawn to the next level, including skirmish modes and online support for fans. Graphically, DTA mimics it's ancestral father perfectly, the charmingly simple…
