Dawn of the Tiberium Age (DTA) is a stand-alone mod that combines Tiberian Dawn (C&C 95) and Red Alert. While classic mode gets as close to the original game-play and balance as possible, Enhanced mode provides improved game balance and a lot of fun new stuff. DTA features many customization options for Skirmish and multiplayer (where you can play as GDI, Nod, Allies and Soviet on over 100 maps), challenging original singleplayer missions, as well as co-op missions. 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.

Nothing can be done about the AI occasionally landing aircraft on water, unfortunately.

There are 3 ships per faction, but 9 new ships were made in total.
The Submarine, Missile Submarine, Destroyer and Torpedo Boat were all replaced with new versions, so the only old ships that are still buildable are the Gunboat, the Sea Shadow and the Cruiser.

So out of the 12 buildable ships (not counting the Sea Mine), 3 still use older graphics, which leaves 9 new ships.

Hi had a problem with the radial range CoOp map with 2 players and MCV auto deploy ON and everything blows up instantly and we lose :(

Thanks for the report. I found a way to permanently fix these insta-lose issues, so please bear with it just a little longer. Until then you can still play that map if you disable Short Game.

Was the aircraft spam for the GDI AI fixable?

We can make the AI build less aircraft, but right now I don't see a problem with the AI's aircraft usage.

Please fix the fullscreen mode to work with two monitors. The mouse isn't lock to the game's screen and it goes to the second monitor(it scrolls the map still). I also suggest adding a restart option for skirmish mode.

Both of those are impossible for us to implement. We do not have the source code for the Tiberian Sun engine. We'd be grateful if you managed to hijack EA's offices and bring it to us, though.

Thank god you fixed the Project 941 to gain elite ranks, i dunno how many ppl i killed including buildings and i swear it gained none. Even tought maybe the engine tought project 941 was a building in deployed mode so tried to get subs and ships with it as a normal sub. Still nothing tough. Cant wait to try it out now :D And awsome job with the .map thing! :)

The Project 941 actually still can't gain veterancy while deployed because of the way its weapon was coded, meaning that the only way to level it up to veteran or elite is by using its torpedoes in the non-deployed state.

What was fixed is that the Project 941 didn't didn't gain an elite weapon when the unit itself did become elite.

Two things tough!

1 - When i opened the launcher this morning to build a map the update started, but at some point a window popped up saying another source was useing the folder or something that the update was going to, so the update didn't install correctly. Now i assumed it was because of the map creator so i finished my map and exited the launcher and reopened it, the lupdate told me the new update was broken and if it sohuld repair it for me, i clicked yes and the update finished properly without any issues. Just tought i would throw this one out there incase someone else gets into it and get's stuck :)

2 - I was playing one of those large skirmish maps (before update btw) the one with all those tiny islands on temperate theatre, with those infantry carrying amphebeus boats that goes from one island to the next with a few stops here and there. Anyways this middle island was protected by SAM's and had 3 ore refineries. And i saw this one AI's Ore truck from his own base simply just cruising over the water and onto that island to get ore xD the truck got hammered by some NPC buildings so i dont know if it would have made it back. But i tought that if a ore truck could make it across other units might too.

Oh one final note that popped into my head, this thing is actualy quite frustrating, at some skirmish maps units will completely stop and freeze, i think its due to some map errors when it was created, maybe one slot shareing two different items that makes the area crash, dunno. But i found this bugg especially large on the wonderland map(8 player) seen it in a few others tough their names ellude my memory atm.

To elaborate more on the final note;

Its not that the area freezes, but for example you have two roads that split in each dirrection due to some cliffs or trees etc. and goes around and meets at the back, forming a sort of "O" shape, now for example, lets say, you have 2 ore trucks, 1 mammoth tank and some other units (not seen this happening with infantry so far) and click for them to take the upper path around the obstacle, they will somewhere get stuck, and if you click more they simply wont move, at this point you have to manualy manouver back out the same tiny route the went to get that far before they got stuck, and go another way.

I've seen this happen when there's a bridge on the path of the units, but I'm not aware of any other cases where this happens.
Is there a specific location with no bridge where this happens that you know of?

Reply Good karma+1 vote

I just checked with the map this happened on, its called "Island Raiders" its a 3p map, the area i saw this problem was AI was based on spawn nr 3, and his vehicle was moveing to the bottom far left ore refinery on the middle Island.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Ops just saw i replyed in toughts of another comment, sorry the map this happened to me extremely actualy as far as i noticed had no bridges at all.(exept a big one that you cannot get on at the far top right corner) The map name is "Deceptive Wonderland" 8p map no Naval. Its basically the entire lower part below the big centre building in the middle. The worst was at the middle of the lower part. Ore trucks would simply get stuck just by beeing ordered to get some ore that was just 4,5 boxes away from their stuck spot :P

Weird. I never noticed anything like that when making Deceptive Wonderland (which included testing the map a lot). Nor has it happened when playing the two Co-op missions based on the map ("Freezingly Desperate Grip" and "Second Wind").

On such island maps where the AI isn't able to build tanks, it still needs to be able to build harvesters to prevent the game from crashing when the AI runs out of credits. So since the AI doesn't build the war factory, the only way to make it able to build harvesters was by making the AI's harvester able to move on water.

Reply Good karma+1 vote

That reminds me of another weird thing i have seen alot lately, when the AI builds a war factory they automatically get a ore truck spawning next to it as if it was a ore refinery. Sorry for all the bug reports:P but i think the more i say the more can be fixed to ensure this mod becomes all it can be and more :)

Bug reports are of course always welcome; we'll address anything that can and should be fixed.

Concerning the AI's war factories, they spawn an extra harvester because the AI otherwise won't build enough of them, so it's not really a bug.
We might use a different solution for this in the future however.

Is it possible to make a Hamachi server on "LAN"?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

There's nothing preventing the use of Hamachi with the client's LAN functionality. However, for online play we recommend using CnCNet, it's less trouble and more reliable than Hamachi in my experience.
