Total Mayhem includes improved versions of 3rd party units by unitmakers from the last 12 years of modding TA. All units have been bugfixed, most have been remodeled, re-textured and re-rendered to Cavedog standard. The entire game balance has been improved. This is intended to be what Cavedog would have done if they continued to support the game.

TOTAL MAYHEM's features include:

  • An extended builder interface with 10 buttons per page instead of the usual 6, that is still compatible with lower resolutions (down to 800x600)
  • Loads of bugfixes that prevent lockups and crashes, improve unit AI and improve game performance, meaning more units ingame with less lag
  • rebalancing of most units to make them more useful, and open up more strategic options for the player
  • snappy gameplay that favours making metal extractors better instead of making metal makers worse, to encourage expansion and improve game pace
  • LOADS of added units, including a complete Level 3 tier: experimental kbots, tanks, navy and air, super nukes, nuke cannons and more

INSTRUCTIONS: If you haven't already, install Total Mayhem 6.92 first, this will include the new TA unofficial patch 3.9.02 with a bunch of new features (double-click units, CTRL_F, CTRL_B, mouse-wheel to a MEGAMAP, lots more). Then, unzip this download into your TOTALA\Total Mayhem folder.

If you are running Windows 8, or Windows 7 with NVidia graphics, and have trouble running the game, you will need this hotfix (just unzip to your Total Mayhem folder, overwriting existing files).

You don't have the Core Contingency installed.

Or, the stupid installer didn't copy ccdata.ccx from your totala folder to your total mayhem folder.

Question: I used the TACC to pack all my older favorite units into a rev31.gp3 but now want to know how to unpack it? TACC cant do that. Is there another way?

I tried to start TA with this mod version 6.92. I set up a skirmish, and when it gets over 3/4 of loading the units, this is what comes up

Record "CORPLAS_dead" missing from feature files

Any help?

Remove cavedog units.ufo (or similar name) from your total mayhem folder. It shouldn't be in there.

In fact if you can't find cavedog units.ufo then look for any small file (less than 1Mb) ending in .ufo. Remove it.

I'm having the same problem, this

Record "CORPLAS_dead" missing from feature files

thing. Well, I don't have any .ufo file less than 70mb - that is TA_Zero_Maps. I've installed TA Zero and Escalation, both are working properly. I don't know if its an issue, but when I try to update the unnoficial patch it says:

Error: Wrong file size

A similar thing happens when I try to update Total Mayhem, but instead, it says:

Error: Unable to find resources on server. Please check if the URL is correct.
