We've been monitoring Nod's activity for just over a Year now and the situation appeared to be settling down until recently. But now we're seeing more activity's among the splintered factions of Nod the stage seems set for another power battle among high ranking officers fighting for power within the Brotherhood. We're bringing you back on Active duty Commander we need you to gather more intelligence on the current situation and we'll be briefing you on the latest developments get you up to speed.

Years of research & development have paid off there has been a breakthrough in our defensive technologies and it is now been added to your arsenal Commander approved for testing under battle conditions, we're calling it the "Firestorm Defense Shield". The system is made up of two components the "Firestorm Generator" and the "Firestorm Wall Sections". GDI Commanders are recommended to deploy Firestorm Wall Sections forming a perimeter around the entire base these are reasonably flat
surfaces vehicles & infantry can easily traverse over when inactive. For activation the Firestorm Generator requires a surplus amount of a base's power reserves so additional power plants are recommended to ensure no defense or manufacturing structures are affected. Once activated the Firestorm Generator generates an impenetrable barrier across the Firestorm Wall Sections that will
destroy any aircraft, missiles, projectiles trying to pass through the field
this includes any vehicles or organic matter as well.

Firestorm Generator Firestorm Defense Online!

This is a very effective counter-measure against the Brotherhood's Missile strikes when an EVA unit detects an incoming Missile activating the Firestorm Defense Shield will protect the area enclosed by the Firestorm Walls. The system does have its draw backs however the Firestorm Generator can only
stay active for a limited period of time requiring time to cool-down and recharge its priming capacitors. It is important to take note that friendly aircraft also cannot pass through the field and you should be mindful of Nod's subterranean vehicles that could bypass the field by travelling under it and surfacing in your base we recommend keeping Mobile Sensor Array's deployed to detect any subterranean activity in the area.

Prepare to Dive! Subterranean APC

We have new Intel on Nods activity Our satellites managed to capture these image's before Nod forces managed to set up a Stealth Generator in the area. Intelligence from our source within a Brotherhood faction reveal this is a new Armored Personnel Carrier redesigned as a subterranean troop carrier. The vehicle can dig underground and travel vast distances making it much more difficult to track Nod's troop movements or predict where they may emerge. Deploying pavement across your base's should be sufficient to stop these Subterranean APC's from surfacing however this has been untested and we've yet to see if Nod have any surprises for us in this regard our source has been known to withhold information in the past. We'll keep you informed as we gather more information about this discovery as we learn more.

Ok, awesome mod you got here... I've been searching information on the building system, and I see you got the powersuit for GDI and drone for Nod...

Now, is the building similar to ZH, like you can build anywhere you want, or can you only build near your own buildings. If you are doing ZH style, think this other option too...

I think it would be cool if you could only build near your own structures... This could prevent lousy half map size bases... And it would bring more continuation here... Or something.

Anyways this mod is awesome. I just recently really woke up and saw this... Watched all the shots with my jaws dropping on each one and read some developer blogs. I love the way you have made tiberium and other units. The only thing I'm conserned is the thing above... I hope you can clear this out for me ;)

Can't seriously wait for this! Keep up the good work!

I think there should be completely different themes added for both GDI and Nod in Tiberian Sun Rising. For example, give GDI heroic themes (I recommend "Act on Instinct" and "Defense") and Nod obscure themes (such as "Nod Crush" and "Stomp"). This way, Tiberian Sun Rising will behave similarly to Generals and Zero Hour, in which the themes present appropriate moods to each faction during gameplay (GDI is heroic and Nod is dark).

I'am sorry to say so, but then your mod is compared to TibSun like Doom III comapres to Doom I or Doom II. It still CALLED "doom", It's still about hell&Demons, it's still "cool", but it is Doom we once knew no longer.
I know the origins of ConYard, but cause C&C was at first a clone of Dune, and ConYard was there from the VERY BEGINING, it's a VERY serious sin to remove it. When I heard you leave dozers in place i was disappointed, but COMPLETELY REMOVING A CONYARD, EVEN JUST AS A BUILDING - is well... Quite something you just can not allow yourself to do, still calling you mod "Tiberian Sun". Especially for NOD. No words, no words...
I just can't understand it... "Cool" features you mentioned will never ever replace a ConYard as a bit of atmoshpere, as a bit of spirit... They may be usable, they may "come in place", come in handy, yes, i agree, but this is not a TibSun anymore...
But even if we still call it TibSun, GDI were the once to Innovate, to add walking robot's instead of tanks, e.t.c. While the brotherhood always relied on modern, but old-looking technologies, take Thick-tank, or stealth tank, or helicopters-with-the-propeller for example. Even Banshee - even being a very strange unit it still fits the style of the really-existing stealth-bomber USA uses. So, If we are still trying to remove a ConYard I suppose it should be GDI, not NOD to be the victim, and still i DO NOT LIKE IT.
Of couse you can just tell me something like "go away if you don't like it", or "you are guilty of insulting us"(which is absolutely not true, cause all I've said were only to support you, otherwise I wouldn't say a word), or something like that to drive me and my annoying criticism away, but if you really ARE tiberian sun fans you should understand me, and my feelings instead.

And a bit of psychological crap: If you want to innovate, and not to recive such kind of criticism it's always better to create some mod from scratch, from your own ideas. If you're trying to remake something there will alwaysl be people like me, who are just... Well, care a bit too much for the old-good-days...

I wish you luck!

No fighting here, debating is fine but no insulting please even minor.

But i think thats the end of that particular topic anyway.

WingDingo if true strategy's your style you'll love TS:R many interesting strategies available to Commanders of both GDI and Nod.

THe mod is balanced in the sense that a variety of units is far more powerful then rushing with many units of the same type. Extensive testing will be done to ensure this stays true for the most part. Even so I think we will introduce some anti rushing measures.... at least for say the first 5 minutes of gameplay or something... perhaps but only if its needed.

Welcome Commanders,

Our Faq does answer a few questions, I think ill add more to it later this weekend:

But i'll gladly answer them here anyway, New Units yes any new additions to Tiberian Sun universe are anaylsed upon everything we know about the Tiberian Univerise of games and whats relevant to 2030. We have even done research against real life technologies for the future, and also matched some things against history as well. In some areas we have expanded the Tiberian Sun universe but everything is strictly within the games atmosphere. Two new unit examples are GDI's construction unit the Pegasus Powersuit which also works like an IFV, and the Nod Replicator an updated Repair Bot design that can deploy into a micro factory and construct copies of itself as well as build structures and repair units.

We went with the classic Tiberian Sun shroud... because Generals... it took the Surprise out of the map, it took exploring out of the equation.. it showed u where everything was which sped up gameplay. But took alot of important scouting strategies out of the game, we have re-enabled such strategy by turning this feature back on. Was done purely for strategic reasons.

Multiple Factorys exist of course, you may build more units via more factorys.

Any more questions please feel free to post here, or they will get an even faster response in our forums:

We have actually developed a good system for the walls that is much better then the standard method to use. They are already a part of the mod ;) so you dont need to convince me ;). The method is far easier on the player and less micro management.

Thanks, its nice to know you like the models, many thanks to the modelers on the team for the hard work they've done great work guys. We have put in a real attention to detail on all aspects of the mod this will be a Tiberian Sun experiance like no other before it ;).

Scaling.. yes its nearly perfect that Comm Center probably needs to be bigger but other then that i agree rest of the scaling is more or less spot on.

And every member of this team is a very passionate Tiberian Sun fan including myself we very much enjoy our work here on Tiberian Sun Rising and i think this shows through ;).

lol i jus wanna say this mod has some of the best models i have seen in any mod for any game - maybe im not lookin hard enough but some of ur models are mind boggling they are so good and i just thought i should let u know how i feel cos i am very very impressed

i also like the scaling its perfect from inf to walkers and i can't wait to see a properly scaled totaly dwarfing giant of the mammoth MKII cos in tib sun it looked stupid it was smaller than a titan

also i just wanna say walls arn't necessary but would be a great asset if possible to add and finaly im looking forward to the new additions u guys put it cos if they are anything like wot im seeing now they got 2 be gd :) great work n thanks for doin it

i know you probably wont but the best way to relive the old games on the sage engine is the walls, some people dont show time for walls, but i love building by base, besides it will bring the game closer to tiberian sun. i have to congratulate you on the madels, you have obviousely put more time and effort into this mod. with the walls though im not trying to tell you what to do its just a suggestion.
