"War... War never changes. The reasons why we fight these wars remain much the same; some are fought to conquer, for religious and ideological beliefs, other wars are fought over gold, oil, spices – natural resources and money. Power is the key element. This war is no different - except there's nothing natural about Tiberium. The year is 1995 and we have just begun to open up our eyes to view a brave new future, some will come to say it's a horrific future. It is the Dawn of the Tiberian future." --- Tiberian Dawn is a total-conversion for the game Command & Conquer: Tiberium Wars. Our goal is to bring C&C1;to a new engine, with enhanced features and graphics while also bringing back much of the classic style of gameplay while not taking steps back from what C&C3;implemented in the series as gameplay features. This is not of course our only goal - the idea of the total-conversion was inspired by an art piece by Godwin that showed the cruelty and bitter humanity of...

You should read the news update on the site (click the Obelisk pic in the latest posted news, either here on ModDB or on tiberiandawn.com). It explains that this is really still a WIP, and that the crystal tip is still being worked on.

Well, I'm taking both of your comments into one here. The CnC3 obelisk is an evolution; much like a modern-day tank would be very out of place in a WWII setting. We are basing out design off the obelisk in CnC1, not CnC3, which is why there is a difference.

Please, I encourage you to explain the specifics as to why it's better. We're always open to changing things a little bit, as long as they don't conflict with the mod's founding goals.
