The Dawn of the Tiberium Age is a stand-alone Tiberian Sun to Tiberian Dawn (C&C 95) and Red Alert total conversion for which we tried to capture TD's and RA's feeling as well as possible (both concerning graphics and gameplay) in classic mode, while giving the player improved game balance and a lot of fun new stuff when playing in enhanced mode.
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.
Due to several technical limitations of Desura, installing stand-alone TS mods can be a bit complicated, namely:
- Desura requires TS to install TI, DTA and ROTD (even though they themselves are stand-alone), since Desura can't install stand-alone mods without checking if you have the original game first
- Desura can't search folders on the main disk, just folders in Program Files directory and via Windows reg keys, so anybody who has the game installed to Westwood\Sun can experience problems with finding the game through Desura (if Desura fails to find it via the reg key)
Desura installs TI, ROTD and DTA to the following directory:
Reg keys used to detect if TS is installed: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Westwood\Tiberian Sun\InstallPath (should be able to detect the game installed in \Westwood\Sun directory) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Electronic Arts\EA Games\Command and Conquer The First Decade\ts_folder
There's a strange font problem with The Dawn of the Tiberium Age mod, so it'll be released later (if debugged).
Please e-mail problems and issues with installing mods through Desura at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org NOT to developers of mods (Desura releases are same as the main ones, but there still can be problems with the app itself) or alternatively visit desura.com/support page
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like The Dawn of the Tiberium Age. We love games like C&C: Tiberian Sun that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
