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.

Hello my friends!

Im sorry but as you may (or may not) suspected the Forgotten Battle Dragon was indeed April Fools´ joke. During development of mutant faction I must take to test many ideas, and some things that sound like cool idea at begining turn not so great later. Such is fate of this mutated dragon. I get this idea from far Cry 3 - Blood Dragon (if you missed it I strongly suggest you give it try, this game is 12 on 10 scale of awesome) Im huge fan of this game and idea to have Battle Armored Dragon Assault Strike System (B.A.D.A.S.S.) was too cool to resist, but later on I realised its just too much. A dragon with gatling guns on its back? Too crazy for serious game like this (or its serious game right?).

There might be more large mutated creatures, but rather things like floater or advanced form of viceroids not anything like overgrowth lizards. In general things that follow tiberian sun pattern for mutated creatures which I personaly preffer.

Tiberium Essence 2.0 Forgotten

Anyway dragon is joke, but I have also something real for you today to remedy situation. I have taken this concept of montsrous dragon spitting blue flames and turn it into salvaged armored moster truck that is also a flame tank. Isn´t that better, I believe yes. Once again this units is WIP like other forgotten units, but I really like this idea of heavy flame tank that can crush everything in its way and burn it (or melt it if you like). Hope you like it better than dragon.

See you next time

got the mod to work. However now when I try to play (mod or otherwise) it'll play for about 3 minutes, then the entire program will shut down and give me an error... anyone know why this happens and how to fix?

It says "the program stopped working, windows will let you know if it finds a solution" or something along those lines. No specific color or anything, just an instant exit of the program with that message in it's place.

Also, I downloaded V1.51 of this mod, and it works fine. N my laptop is pretty new. Core I7, 8gb ram, not sure exact graphics card and sound card but they are pretty decent. was able to play new SimCity at almost max graphics with little-no lag. So it seems like the issue lies in the V1.6 itself, or compatibility with it.

Depends on what error(s) it gives you.
Cannot possibly be OOM aka the infamous Direct3D error (E_OUTOFMEMORY), could be?
Does the icons or screen go pink or white or something before it crashes?
I guess it could be compatibility and need for updated drivers, graphic card, directx.
Try it in lowest settings.
From what I googled, set your Shaders atleast on Medium.
Its also neccesity for all mods to work properly.
Anyone has idea what "onboard graphic" is? Cannot tranlate it.xd
Well, HTH, commander, otherwise I guess our friend Starfox100 could do better than me, when it comes to solving technical stuff.

Pink screen is a sign of over heat.
TE1.6 works on lowest settings (even though the Tasitus Archive is invisible)
Windows 8.1 don't like MODs very much, I don't know how to fix that.
OOM is to do with running too many programs.
TE1.6 works on Vista an Win7.

Can't get it to run. Have it patched to 1.9, downloaded file to mod in the cnc3 files, extracted to said mod file. Go to run the game/gamebrowser/mods, and it is empty. Anyone have a solution? "This computer/C:/Program files x86/Electronic Arts/Command and conquer 3/mods" is the exact location

Play one common original CNC3 skirmish game, for Game Browser Replays/Mods to activate.
Just start skirmish and sell your Construction yard/Drone platform.
Common thing to happen to new fans who havent never run any
common game or other mod before.
Or you can use
Its that stuff about adding -modConfig or -ui in Target of your shortcut icon properties.
Windows 8 you are using as I can see, can also require updating drivers, otherwise it could bother you with directx compatibility erros.
Good luck and welcome to Tiberium Essence, Commander.

Mod files need to go into C:\Users\YourUserHere\Documents\Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars\Mods
If you don't have a mods folder in the Tiberium wars folder, make one.
Also needs to be in its own folder in the mods folder.
