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.

Hallo my friends and fans!

Moddb awards
First thing first. Thank you all for participating in Mod of the Year Awards, once again Tiberium Essence made into first 100 which is great success as always.

And now to Forgotten
As you can see work on the mod is still in progress, but I'm getting closer to something playable. Considering amount of work that has been done and what is left to do you can expect release in second quarter of 2016. Maybe even sooner. At least that is the plan.

I know that this is probably not what you have expected but developing new faction is truly more trickier than I have expected. I need more time to get things right.

It seems that the idea that floater will be the only forgotten aircraft has not been met with wide approval
so I changed my mind (again) and return to my original plan including more aircrafts for the forgotten, but lets keep it still in small numbers I say no more than 3 types.

Tiberium Essence 2.0

So here is Hind gunship, I think its quite fitting to forgotten faction, resilient and versatile aerial transport.
And floater will be something like kirov airship, dropping big bombs, that might be actually more fun and more reasonable afterall.

Tiberium Essence 2.0

So that is all for now folks.

Happy hollydays to you all and happy new year.

This awesome mod is dead?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Nope, Carnius is single handedly working a new faction into the game, and that takes a while, this is not a mod you should expect frequent updates on, since it is a single persons passion project they work on in their spare time. It's worth it though, as Carnius does a very good job of polishing and balancing things. And in my opinion it's the best Tiberium Wars mod out there.

Hello, damn I've been away for ages!(Like a year and a half or something XD). Exams and stuff are so freaking boring! Had a good time looking through all these Mutant images that I missed. I absolutely love the Forgotten so can't wait to play as them!

As ever, thank you so much Carnius for your continued hard work on this fantastic mod, which is what CnC3 should have been.

Just got back into playing CnC after a long break and it's good to be back. I just thought I would mention something very small that is a little annoying; the Attack Bikes don't detect stealthed enemies and Harvester's have some occasional pathfinding errors. I think I'm about to be told 'it's already been mentioned' but I don't know that so...

Keep up the good work!

Edit: Was having a look through the bug fix thread... Am I the only one who thinks the spelling mistake complaints are just really unnecessary? I have seen some complaints about an extra space here or one thing saying meteor when it should be meteorite; is it really that big a deal? I honestly could not care less about this as there are WAY more important things to be focused on than petty little spelling errors.

Welcome back buddy.
Yes, Attack bike and Pacifier does not detect(but you have Harpies,Shadows;Seekers and Ravager gunships anyway)
Its already been mentioned :D
Spelling is a big deal, all details down to the last one is important,just like the pathing of harvesters,AI,militant icon,changing name of Forgotten Defender since there already is GDI Tacitus Archive Zone Defender Squad(I cannot believe Carnius was actually inspired by CNC4);etc.,etc.,etc. until perfect perfection. :D
Creating and release of a new faction is for Carnius priority number one though, without a doubt xD
You gotta tell me your thoughts on new mutant units.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

They look really promising. The kind of technology and look I would expect from the Forgotten; recycled technologies mixed with Tiberium integration. Very nice design

I actually liked the units in CnC4. I just didn't like the no base-building, no resource harvesting and no decent storyline aspects. The units however I actually quite liked.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

completely agree bro! CNC4 units have some of my fav designs such as kodiaks and GDI basic infantry (loved those miniguns with grenade launcher) sadly the game play it self was terrible...

and i do agree about spelling errors too, we have FAR more things to fix and focus just than stupid spelling class, this kind of things are and should be always the final touchs

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

some ideas!
make for all factions some Subfactions(can be selected ingame):
for NOD: BLACK HAND,LEGION(to not make the cabal faction,make it a nod subfaction)
For scrin: traveler 59(Have a lot of aircraft) and reaper 17(uses much tiberium and alien plasma/lasers)
For forgotten TBG(Tiberium Beast group,aka uses tiberium weapons) and GLA(uses old weaponry from older games such as: ra2,ra1,TD)
Make stolen tech units(can be accessed if you capture the faction's lab) :D

Juggernaut should have a mini bunker,to put an infantry inside,like the Behemoth from kane's wrath
The old GDI Commando should be added as a Tacitus archive hero(would represent havoc)
GDI ZOCOOM Commando should have a mini upgrade for having a Railgunish-minigun,and can be upgraded with some of the armory upgrades(you choose)
GDI Should have a new unit:the mirage tank(Advantages: Stealthed while not shooting,shoots with a laser,his laser is very powerfull
Disadvantages: cost 2000,slow(but has an acceleration button but it damages him while activated),and he needs to lock on to the target to shoot)
GDI should get the hammerhead

FIST OF NOD should be back
Cyborg commando should have a blue tiberium upgrade for weapon
An upgrade for blue flames should be made,it would affect the: Avatar flame hand,devil tongue
For Tacitus archive hero,a confessor with an electrical weapon(it represents mendoza from renegade)
Instead of the emp weapon for the buggy,make a iron curtain effect(make it for the bike too)

Add new aircraft for scrin(that can land like the stormrider on the Gravity Stabilizer
A new SCRIN vehicle-the RAPMER-shoots with super electric bolts against land units,and with red tiberium electric bolts against aircraft(best AA FOR SCRIN)
SCRIN TACITUS ARCHIVE HERO: PLESTROROID-Looks like a human-alien combination-mutates infantry into alien brutes

Tacitus archive hero: Tratos(can mind control multiple foes,has ability to summon an asteroid)
Put the Advanced Guard Tower from Tib Dawn as the T3 defense
Put the flak cannon from ra2 as forgotten AA

That is all

Holy ****, dude, this is already rather better to be taken elsewhere on the TEF suggestions forum thread..
I will copy it and tell you what I think there:
But promise me to remove this comment of yours from here.
BTW: As you said yourself two days ago, KW is not supposed to be here and I would like for everyone to restrain all suggestions during ongoing Carnius's development of TE 2.0, only to mutants.

i was thinking of examples from kane's wrath(i know i know,the hammerhead xD )
i will copy it
