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

This game is still beautifull, its sad that modern games could not deliver so much content and imagination, specially on terrain.

Ah, I know you! Glad to see that you play TA. This and the original Age of Empires were my top two games back in the day. I currently have TA and CC still installed because I still play them (with UberHack and some other custom units installed) but I think I'm going to give this mod a try...looks good!

Sorry to hear that! I haven't heard of that error before. I play on Windows 8. Any chance you can post up a screenshot? If you visit, visit the Help and support topic in the Mayhem Inc forum. You may find some help there.

Thanks for all the work put into this.

I have a couple of questions, though;

How many units are there in this mod?

And are there other mods like this one out there, but with different units?

Downloading individual units and then configuring various files for every single one is a bit of work when you want as many as possible.

So, are there any modders or people who have already done this for the extreme amount of units that exist for Total Annihilation? Or compilations with new units to add ontop of the existing ones?

Total Mayhem includes over 400 umits in total. TA has a limit of 512 units and 256 weapons, although the new unofficial 4.0 patch in development removes these limits. Which is a good thing too, there's no way I'd be able to add the TLL race with that limit.

I just checked today (13 Jan 13), and there hasnt been any "recent" admin nor modder activity. On top of that, FileUniverse doesnt seem to exist anymore either.
