This modification offers an alternative gameplay to Tiberian Wars involving many Tiberian Sun units which many CnC fans (like me) missing in vanilla CNC3 and add even new my made units which you can't find anywhere else. Story is quite the same like Tiberian Wars, but is all about what if GDI and Nod do not abandon technologies they have used in Tiberian Sun era and instead of that further developed them. But it's not only that, there are many visual, sound and balance changes which I want to see and hear in my mod, new sounds, new music, new effects (like blood and gore, new infantry deaths, new more realistic missile trails) and many more.

63 comments by Carnius on Feb 2nd, 2014

After some troubles and long development TE 1.6 is released. It´s beta which means there might be some bugs and ballance issues left. If you find anything wrong please report back to me so I can fix that in some future patch.

TE 1.6 is full of experiments that might prove as bad idea so please approach to it open minded. Things like Gdi Firestorm Generator, recently added Nod Tunel Network or more epic/superheavy units for each faction sound cool, but might become serious problem in time, but still I wanted to try it all.

Most important changes in v1.6

There is a lot game improvements and ballance changes, but unfortunately over time I have lost track about what is really new and what is old. So here is some of the most important things you should know before play.


- Added wall gates to all factions - important note - due engine limitations gates requires precise placing, I´m sorry but this is the only way.
- All stealth detectors show aura style radius which tell you how far they see cloked units
- Added Weinhole monster - in general works as tiberium field but damages also vehicles (except harvesters), weins can be also harvested by all factions and got 3x greater value than green tiberium, unlike tiberium field weinhole monster can be destroyed though.
- All new superheavy units is no longer in Tacitus archive as was previously announced, but have been added to normal production.
- Presence of Leviathan mothership, Kodiak II and Montauk on map is for now announced by Eva as "mothership deployed" (from certain poit of view all of them can be understand as some sort of mothership)
- Added a lot and lot props into world builder
- Added snowy and ice bridge into world builder

- New skirmish maps - Tiberium infestation, 4 player map, 2v2 style
                    - Arctic Desolation, 4 player map, free for all


- Added Kodiak II Command ship to Air tower production tab, unique superheavy aircraft - support, anti-aircraft and anti-tiberium role.
- Added Firestorm generator - defensive structure, can activate firestorm plasma shield - makes allied units virtually invulnerable while in the same time damages enemy units. 
- Call for transport cost 100. Requires Dropship command. Transport aircraft flee of map after unloading its cargo as do in vanilla CnC3. Changed back on request.
- Removed Mobile EMP from warfactory due ballance issues (at least for now).
- Jetpack Trooper - attack damage vs vehicles reduced by 50% and vs aircraft by 25%, reduced armor vs missile type weapons.

- Added Montauk Command vehicle to Construction yard production tab, unique superheavy vehicle, support and anti-aircraft role, deploys additional reinforcement.
Note Montauk do not deploys into warfactory! Based on experience I have gain over time I find this idea not good really, it made montauk easy target and unable to gain experience (which can´t be fixed anyway)
- Added Tunel Network Center to Construction yard support tab - works as substation tech structure in vanilla cnc3, only 3 units at once can enter tunel network due some engine limitations
- Saboteur benefits from Forced Evolution upgrade
- Added Taratula drone to Secret Shirne production tab - in general replaces fanatics as nod suicidal unit, cloked when stand still

- Added Conqueror command walker to Gateway production tab, unique superheavy walker, support role, seeds tiberium, assimilate technology by killing enemy units, heals scrin units 
- Annihilator got new model, changed from tripod to quadropod, got 3 turrets
- Stormrider - tiberium upgrade replaced by plasma missile upgrade that improves his anti-air attack power earlyer in game, available on Nerve center
- Leviathan mothership - removed seed tiberium ability, enabled anti-air attack and blink pack
- Contaminators spawned by Corrupter and Leviathan weapons can see in small radius

So try it and report back anything on your mind.

I hope v1.6 fulfill at least partially your expectations. I have tried to do my best, but you know, sometimes some things not go as planned. Anyway I will keep working on TE to make even better in future.

I don't know the actual values, so let's say that the GDI Rifleman Squad has 450 hp and 15 damage. Question:

Does that mean that even if we take all but 1 member away, the squad with its remining 1 member will still deal 15 damage and it's health will be 450/max_member_count?

Or it means that each member has 15/max_member_count damage?

One squad member has one rifle. 5 of them has 5 rifles.
GDI Riflemen has 6 squad members, Nod Militants has 8 members.
Of course, quality of Riflemens statistics are slightly better.
That reminds me that Black hand Elite member
(Black Hand Elite upgrade) needs statistics buff and I want to say you that
"Can engage airborne infantry" means that only Black hand Elite with his laser rifle and his insignificant attack damage can shoot at Shadow squads on paraglides,
but not on Jetpack trooper.

This is also reason why I want unit description overhaul with addition of their attack damage and health.
For example Nod Harpy Microwave Pulse Generator upgrade needs fix:
In Operation center it still references to its Signature generator ability,which he has by default.
But in fact, this passive ability gives Harpy second attack that deals 250 hp damage every 10 seconds to enemy aircraft.
How much are 250 hp?
It probably does not mean that enemy Harpy would die in a second.
There are also damage type modifiers and damage bonuses,
so description for units with more weapons and attacks would be either overall sum or diametral or listed. I am for listed.
Though I have no idea if and what types of armor are there.
Heres example:

no, the more soldiers get killed in the squad. the less damage that squad eventually will do.

See, that's why I prefer single infantry units. They deal the same amount of damage regardless of how much health they have lost. Although I guess a downside to single infantry units would be micro-management.

well, I like the squads way more just because it does make a bit more sense in this game.
You do not run into the battlefield alone like everybody is some kind of master chief. you go in as a team. :)

besides if one survives he can join into another squad (refill the squad)

Going to learn Czech language? Core website is long time dead.
Carnius is always very busy.
Most relevant is here at moddb or here
or here
Or bunch of youtube vids.

Relevant mapping stuff would be mr. Bibbers

Editing(like putting Tacitus Archive)both into skirmish and campaign maps needs only thoughfully read another mr. Bibbers great tool, the OS BIG editor,mentioned in my earlier comment.

Upon opening Edit Player List(Ctrl+Alt+P)theres blue movable field with text "Player list"
up there.
If your specific computer screen size or display resolution still does not allow you to do that, theres stuff that could be done on your desktop ledge toolbar.
Changing your screen vertical or horizontal position,
stuff with Alt+Ctrl+Delete or Alt+Ctr+Tab,maximalizing,minimizing seemed to be little bit emergency case for me. xd

Hit P and select something in "Object selection Opts" field.
Right click into empty space and you'll get back mouse pointer.

All that is stuff for TEF Mapping&Campaigns and Worldbuilder threads.
