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.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Tiberium Essence 1.6 Beta Released!

66 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.

General:

- 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

GDI

- 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.

Nod
- 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

Scrin
- 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.

Wanna ask Carnius if he speaks german,russian,etc. and do like five different versions of units/upgrades/structures/support powers descriptions of uploads of TE?
My dear British friend commander Gallade, maybe one day Carnius should upload even the Scottish version TE, eh? :D

GDI weak?
But yes, even with ECM container armor upgrade,
the Orca bomber for 2200 with two emp bombs loadout is useless, when you have Firehawk for 1500 with four emp bombs.
GDI AA defense without railgun is truly weak. It takes a long time before it kills one Jetpack trooper(unlike Goliath, which eats JP'ts alive)
What could use some buffs could be Disruptor with Tempest.
Tell me in what aspects are Wolwerines Titans,Mammoths Goliaths Firehawks,
Juggernauts Zone troopers weaker?
Instead of air unit, you got your Predator in Tacitus archive.
Decimator cyborgs are superior Mammoth and Colossus.

Look, I don't know the stats, it is merely an observation that they somehow die a lot quicker without doing much damage to the opposing side(Scrin or Nod). I would have blamed it on corrupted files on my computer or something like that, but I saw it during multiplayer. And as for AA, I really wish I had to send ground troops the moment I saw it, but maybe it is just me.

Just to be clear, it wasn't only in the TE, but also in unmodded 1.9.

Nod Banshee already disscused. Can be moved to T4 and much less effective againts infantry and mainly structures.
Venoms has exactly the same health as Harpies.
Which means that T1 vehicles with AA will slaughter them.

Scrin infantry needs quality. The lack of equivalents to T1 human infantry is maddening.We could remove clear garrison from Buzzer hive and give clear garrison to Buzzers when they will acquire Nerve center,since all factions clear garrison capability require radar type structure(Yeah, its suprising,Disc throwers requires Radar instead of Armory)
Shock trooper requiring both Stasis chamber and Nerve center with Stalwarts requiring Tech assembler is ********.
Extremely bugged Buzzer hive and Buzzers with disintegrators has practicaly no meaning and can be removed, imho.
