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 gameplay as closely as possible, while the enhanced mode also adds the Red Alert factions and adds many new features and balance improvements. In other words, 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.

17 comments by Rampastring on Oct 31st, 2014

If you've been following us lately, you've most likely noticed that we've been posting plenty of pictures from the next version of The Dawn of the Tiberium Age.


Today we're officially announcing The Dawn of the Tiberium Age 1.13. It will be a massive multiplayer-oriented update, including new features for Skirmish and especially CnCNet multiplayer. We're aiming to give you the best classic C&C experience available, no less. Let me list some of DTA 1.13's new multiplayer features:

  • Private messaging on CnCNet
  • Colored chat on CnCNet
  • Improved CnCNet UI both visually and usability-wise
  • Lockable games and persistent game lobbies (meaning the game lobby doesn't get disbanded after having a single game unless you wish so)
  • Spectator support
  • Dynamic map preview; starting locations, teams and colors of all players with pre-placed starting locations are now displayed on the preview
  • All windows are now re-sizable, scaling properly from low-resolution netbooks to your shiny new 4K Ultra HD monitor
  • Map previews are now much larger and sharper
  • 4 different themes to select from; Tiberian Dawn, Classic Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert Allied and Red Alert Soviet themes.

That's just the technical part. For gameplay features, we have 81 varied multiplayer maps, 4 different and diverse factions to pick from, and a huge array of multiplayer options that outnumbers every official C&C game and most mods ever made:

  • Crates
  • Short Game
  • Immune Harvesters
  • Re-Deployable MCV
  • Multi-Engineer
  • Destroyable Low Bridges
  • Infinite Tiberium / Ore
  • Replace Tiberium With Ore
  • Harvesters Unload Instantly
  • Stormy Weather
  • Extreme AI
  • Turtling AI
  • Build Off Ally
  • Start Without Shroud
  • Shroud Regrows
  • No Infantry Crushing
  • Disable Visceroids
  • Disable Super Weapons
  • Disable Unit Queuing

For precise descriptions of these game options, please check some of the images on our images section.


We will also be introducing new game modes in DTA 1.13, the most important one being Co-Op Missions. These are singleplayer-style pre-scripted missions, but created for multiple players; just imagine what DTA's current singleplayer missions would be like if you could play them with your friends. If you want to play these Co-Op Missions alone, you can have an AI team mate on some missions, but on other missions it's not going to be much of help. So, we recommend that once DTA 1.13 is out, you grab some friends (or seek for friends on the CnCNet Lobby) and play these missions with real intelligence on your side. Dying together with your friends is always more fun than dying alone, isn't it?

We also have some additional game modes in the works, but you will hear more about them later.


Other than improved CnCNet multiplayer, new game options and game modes, The Dawn of the Tiberium Age 1.13 will also come with some new and improved maps as usual. There's also a large amount of balance changes incoming; to make our multiplayer experience as awesome as possible, we've been playing dozens and dozens of online games with the staff, including both co-op and player-against-player matches. Based on those games, we've done a lot of fine-tuning to the balance of our 4 different sides, and I can say that we're now really satisfied with it.

DTA 1.13 will be released soon. We don't have a habit of giving out exact release dates, but we can say that it'll certainly be within this year, so within the next two months. Until then, stay tuned as we'll be giving our more updates in the meanwhile! On November 4th DTA will turn 7 years old, and we're still going strong!

No hovercraft really make this game a nightmare to play as a Soviet or Nod, we need transport that can land and attack!

You can use the Chinook to transport vehicles; it works just like the Carryall in TS.

You can't. Multiplayer is limited to CnCNet, but the service is fairly fast and easy-to-use (there's no registration etc. needed) so it isn't a major issue for most people.

The engine was developed in-house by Westwood and I don't think WW ever gave it an official name. Typically they're just called "TD/TS engine", although some fans (especially here at ModDB) also use the term "Westwood 2D".

Loading a saved game from the 4th mission and then going ESC -> Abort Mission -> Restart should be enough.

As for the bug itself, I really have no idea. It used to work correctly at some point..

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…
