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.

Post news Report article RSS Feed New version 1.51 Beta released

Version v1.51 that includes necessary bug fixes and some balance changes has been released.

Posted by Carnius on Jun 5th, 2012

Hello everyone,
Launch of v1.5 was more problematic than I have expected, some bugs caused too much gameplay problems and become obvious, that new version needs to be released soon as possible. So after week of work I can bring you hotfix version v1.51 that includes necessary bug fixes and some balance changes that became obvious over past week of playing.
Unfortunately you must download whole mod again this canĀ“t be solved by small patch.

Your feedback was very helpful so i encourage you to keep posting more in future.

Edit - Please post your feedback in new tread here:

Edit - new thread for suggestions and ideas

After release there was big talk regarding orca and removed minigun upgrade. Most people agreed that minigun was good thing and should be add back. After some thinking I have decided try it again. So in this version 1.51 Orca get minigun back but not as upgrade. Minigun is now secondary weapon that replaces shockwaves, so you can switch in between missiles and minigun anytime which works better than previous upgrade. Personaly I like this option, but it might be OP, in that case minigun will be removed permanently. We shall see.
Also Nod turrets was subject to big discussion so for now I make them spawn 2 turrets.

Known issues that persist:
Titan model glitch when exits Warfactory
Mutants in skirmish - 3 units limit doesnt work properly, you are still able to build more when using fast build option by holding shift + click
Gdi mission in Eastern Europe - Siedge of temple Prime - for reason unknown yet you are unable to capture mutant outpost (hovel)

Bugs fixed:

- Mobile EMP Cannon can enter carryall and can use call for transport ability
- Orca Rig - cannont be destroyed during deployment - prevent game crash
- Rifleman Squad - add muzzle flash when fire
- Firehawk can level up again
- Wolverine disappearing upgraded ammo box glitch fixed
- Orca Bomber bombs now change to veteran version when unit reach maximum level
- Sniper Squad - removed not working pulse scan ability icon from unit profile ability sidebar
- Carryall - stratofighter upgrade icon removed from unit profile

- Black hand elite upgrade - no longer enable stealth for squads, solved issue when you was unable to target militant and rocked squads
- Militant Squad - removed not working scorpion dig in ability icons from unit profile ability sidebar, add muzzle flash when fire
- Added missing firing sounds to Militant rocket and Attack Bike
- Secret Shirne icon updated to match new model
- Nod Outpost no longer display evacuate all button in sidebar

- Pacifiers should be unable to take control over mines and aircrafts

- Manta no longer spawns unlimited ion storms
- Planetary assault carrier ion storm now affect new units

I was able to access it after I used a Titan to knock the walls and fences down around it.

Most of the big bad game-breaking bugs are gone for the most part as i played for the past hours, but I can see we still have a long ways to go b4 this is truly polished. Most of the bugs I encountered like the Mind Drone Bug are more minor.

It's better, but i see always problems with mutants : you can continue to produce more than limit, and mutant Hunter (sniper) and mutant hijacker do not heal in tiberium.

Continue, we wait the next version. =)

Carnius, there is a way to make the patch of this mod smaller, if you can work this out with Bibber (since he's the one who knows how to do it).

CM32 Jun 6 2012 says:

Actually I have a way to patch things up as well, just ask me and Ill give you an answer.

Indeed, making a more smaller patch is much more useful here than compared to a entirely new version.

connah_r1 Jun 9 2012 says:

yay, orcas have miniguns again
it was so useful, although it wasn't very powerful against aircraft it was a cheaper alternative to a whole new airfield full of firehawks, which i never particularly liked as they don't look like a VTOL

the only thing i would say against the miniguns is it does make ocra bombers over powered

Carnius i would like to thank you fore your hard but if you ever going to relase a new verjon her is my tips you need to fix
I rally think nod air defense is sucks specially sam turrets really pest me off. Also the Venom helicopters or Harpy was the best unit in nod so why you change it to something bad and not that strong
however the avatar is so weak now it can't kill one unit of infantry and locks ugly .Not to mention the stealth tank is so horrible with short rate of fire and number of missile bing reduced totally useless.
simply Tiberium Essence 1.51 is a complete failure for nod units and defenses
and please leave air units the way it was in Tiberium Essence v1.4
those was my suggestion and i think it make sense because i tested it and i know how weak they become.
and if you can get a big avatar for nod that will make some balance

I love this mod to death, real fun thou i hate playing against nod due to the fact they spam specters, especially in the campaign, take out my hard work at building my base, anyways learned to use air units to kill them off when spotted. I used to switch back to 1.4 just to get through the campaign because i couldnt stand those things, but now woot fun stuff =)

Ghost stalker cant demo charge buildings or walkers like it says, also noticed bug with transport that prevents it from loading a unit if you are forced to cancel said order. Reason im bringing it up is because you cant complete bonus objective on temple prime as gdi.

timagamer Oct 7 2012 says:

Is that normal, that Scorpion MkII does not receive any bonuses from "Dig in" ability? Or have I misunderstood how does it works. Test showed, that any unit do same damage to burried/unburried tank.
Does that bonus apply when attack comes from friendly unit via Ctrl?
And about the range, it doesn't change :\
Thanks for explanations.

P.S. Thanks for the awesome mod! You're doing the great thing, really

I was playing the Nod campaign recently, and I used a cyborg hijacker to hijack a fully ranked mammoth tank with the rail gun upgrade, but when the hijacker took over the mammoth tank the rail gun upgrade was removed and the ranks were gone, leaving the mammoth tank in it's original form.

Also this might be just me but the wolverine seems a little overpowered ._.
