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.

First of all, Special Thanks, this is the greatest Mod ever seen!!!!
I have now played some maps, with GDI and NOD, her my comments and suggestions:
+I think you the change list is not complete, because there are improvements not mentioned, like Icons, animations for the Drill-Upgrade...
+new GDI Unite not mentioned the MEDIC
+you models are great and I can say as professional as the Original EA models (I will not say better, because I think EA has do there work good enough)
+with this mod I feel like I play a new game, with new possible tactics, a rethinking, what units to builds first....

-the EA GDI models have a lot more Metallic-silver textures, what fit not so good with you models that are more brown-gold, a color change for the EA units would be great
-last time I asked for the animation of the NOD-Drill-Upgrade and the Orca-Bomber Rotors you answer was that the element are to tiny because of that they do not realy need animation, but know you have spend the animation to the drills, is it possible to become too animation for the Orca-Bomber, too make the mod more perfect?????
-I do not know if the NOD-APC was you first Unite, but (I will not critic you) beside the other Unites, that one is from the design very simple to not say ugly, and fit not with the quality and details of you other units, it would be nice to became there a better model.

a second thanks, and know I play :-)

Damn, i just find out i forgot inform you about my change on Catalist missile.
I put update here just for sure.

Nod Support powers
Catalist missile - 50 % smaller blast radius, deals five time more damage to surrounded area which make it of some use even vs normal buildings and units

Discthrowers still sound like grenadiers, and I think their name still is grenadier squad, I don't remember if that is so. But I'm sure they sound like grenadiers.

Great mod!!! The best.

Love what you did to make the Predator a usuable unit. I would also suggest you remake the mammoth tank with the quality of the rest. EAs version isn't that great especially around the treads. TWAs mammoth tank version is an example of how much better one could look than EAs original.

Disruptor is kickass!

akh73 May 2 2009 says:

It's a big kickass!!! (ps: i'm french so excuse my english)
I have something to say about this mod!
1) I think The MK2 is too big , it may be a few little! AND THE LEGS HAVE SOMETHING WHO DOESNT WORK!
2) I think there is too blood with infantry when we shoot them!
3) The commando cyborg is too strong (just a little)
4)The cargo who drop the mk2 is too fast, and too big( a little too)!
5) Why the SAM of gdi is not change?
6) the drilling upgrade is magnificient, but i think that the collapse animation (dust) of small structure (like sam) will be better if it's apllicated to drilling action when IT "IN" and "OUT"!!
7) cyborg are too freezy when they walk and when they stand!
8) if the devil's tongue and tre apc can take much time to move underground( like in tiberian sun) it will be great!

I think i say all!! I DONT MAKING BAD YOUR MOD, I LOVE IT, I PLAY IT ALL DAY, AND I RATED IT 4.8/5!!! It's a crazy mod!
So , it's also my own point of view, maybe other folow me, maybe it's just me! I have to say you and the team of Essence THANNNNNKKKKKKK UUUUU!!!!!!!

PS: if u can add more tiberium unit (like in firestorm in the first mission of gdi) and add too a ambiant like firestorm, u know with thunder touch the ground, red tiberium (who destroy mechanic units), ambiant a few like in the latest mission of gdi in ground zero! i think that there is a difference between firestorm and c&c3 in the level of tiberium contamination in the world, and firestorm is more closer from story than c&c3!

Also your mod is awesome more than all other, and i think that the banshee is too weak than original but graphism is great!!
So great job and i repeat i dont making bad your work!!!! i love it!!
and i just want do what u think is good!!!!

akh73 May 2 2009 says:

oh and do you remember the animation in the first mission of gdi in tiberium sun (soleil de tiberium in french ^^), when the trooper arrive in capsule from space ( i dont remember if they came from philadelphia or another )!
I think this dropship will be applicated on exosoldier of gdi, ( i dont know what them name in english, u konw who can use jet pack!)
that's all!

akh73 May 2 2009 says:

And also remake the Titan models( make it seems like in KW, i think he's closer from reality, and be careful about titan's leg too!!!!!!!, it's too simple, so when you see juggernaut, you see a difference of movement technologie!!( maybe titan models can be based on juggernaut, the legs part!)
And replace the v-35 by the orca tranport from TS!!!!
I know i have a lot of recommendation, but i think i'm not the only one who think that these recomendation have to be in the next upgrade!!

U can also add to the mk2 more details, In Tw, they say that it left a few mk2, so he's use a lot of time when gdi needed it!
So i think that he must be dusty, not brand new from the factory, and if u can also perfect animation it will be so great!!!

Hello The Team 'Tiberium Essence'.

I'm a one of the korean user playing esssence well.

However as you know there are a differences between English and korean so that we can't recognize easily the changed Data base ir uterore tations of units.

So the point is that we require the source files respecfurly to translate English-witten Tiberium Essence into korean.

We are Never meant to release it to anybody anywhere I hope you'll yet us do it by giving it to us.

This mod is great. Wish it still had Mammoth mk2 capture husk and legless cyborgs. Re-add legless cyborgs. If the carrier is destroyed it can just be like they survived.

Its not just this problem, they also fall out squad so you lost command over them until you select them again, same with cyborg commando and its really annoying when that happen in middle of battle. That is why i cancel that.

i do think it would be cool if you could make a capture husk think for the MKII if it gets destroyed. i don't know if that would be hard to do though
