After some delay, the next TWA update is ready. Again, it mostly fixes bugs and changes some small details. It also add the new Scrin Shrikes, a test...
Tiberium Wars Advanced seeks to bring the game closer to its Westwood roots while also maintaining the unique new flavor that Tiberium Wars brought to the series. New units, abilities, structures, strategies and a fresh gameplay experience are just a few of the things TWA brings to the table. With updated gameplay that brings the "Strategy" back into RTS and removes the "zerg rush" mentality, TWA is a mod that will appeal to both die-hard, base-building Westwood fans and those relatively new to the franchise alike. Don't believe us? Give it a download and try it out!
Wow, I should have been waiting with this posting half a year for the third year anniversary since the last news post.
Anyway, since TWA still seems to have some fans around here, I through its' a good time for a news post (you know, christmas spirit and all that humbug):
First things first: There are no plans for a release anytime soon - I know there are a couple of major bugs (not to mention the Nod AI crash) but we lost our SVN server a while back, so there is no way to go back to older releases and fix their bugs.
The only TWA version I have right now has lots of CnC4 stuff and 2 new factions, but that is nowhere close to releaseable or fun to play. In fact, I might end up removing most of it as it hardly fits CnC3.
However, one of the goals for TWA that I always had, which should be doable with the current build, is the campaign. One major advantage is that internal unit names and scripts hardly change, so once the campaign is fixed, it should work for all versions, past and future.
So, atm I am looking for any problems related to the GDI campaign (Scrin & Nod might follow later).
-Have important scripts stopped workiing? (like the MCV reinforcement)
-Is a mission to hard/easy because of the different game balance? (Nod Militants are way harder to kill with Riflemen now)
-Can the AI build units or use abillitys/powers that should not be available in that mission? (Nod using Spectres, Wraith or Cyborgs)
-Can you build units or use abillitys/powers that should not be available in that mission? (Mastodons says hi)
-Are there cases where units use their old TW design instead of the TWA one? (like Sniper Teams having a Spotter)
-Other unit problems? (Commandos not working right)
If you find anything like that, please post it as comment under this news.
Again, I can't promise if or when I will release that fix, but it's certainly one of the things I still plan to do with TWA.

damn, this mod is waaaaaaay better in copying kw stuff than the reloaded mod. shame that there is a rather big amounts of upgrades missing, but hell, there are still versions to be released
