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

I'm not that big of a fan of TA, (in fact a bigger fan of StarCraft, blah blah 40 reasons IDGAS. xD) but you guys are committed to this mod and reviving this game, I shall continue to watch. =O

For the record, at least 5 of the things it said you couldn't do in SC you can do, half of them are not needed in SC, but the rest I agree with.

Starcraft (1) was a much simpler game with much more basic gameplay than TA despite being released a year later than TA. It became hugely more popular in spite of (or perhaps partly because of) this - partly due to Blizzard's marketing muscle, I'll wager, but also partly because it has a more complete storyline than TA, cleverer balance, and due to the simpler gameplay the learning curve is much shorter.

Starcraft was for quicker games. TA is for epic battles - although quick games are entirely possible with TA on smaller maps.

It's horses for courses tho really. I had no patience for SC and TA still captures my attention 13 years on - but that's just me. :)

Hey Gamma, im not here to spam, im here to kindly answer some stuff/and to provide a little bit of feedback.
First of all, thanks for this mod!
Second of all, this mod needs promotion. I go on gameranger, warzone, and pheonixworx, all of which, most people don't know of mayhem, or just dont want to try it. :\
Can't be a gamer if theres no games going on :P
I like the new version, but i think a bit of feedback is in order:

Tech 3 kbots, its really the same thing. The units don't do unique stuff and unique weapons does not cover that up (not implying that you were), however, the units can be easily changed via fbi/weapons tdfs. (as you surely know)

i got more on a blog here: (put it into a blog due to 2000 char limit.

I assure you gamma, i have no intentions of spamming this page or posting false/intentionally bad advice. Its a ta mod page, its rare/valuable/awesome.... :)

Also, gamma. I think famine missile should take longer. I had my resolution on i think 1366x1028 or something like that. (certainly above 1024x1280) And the famine missile seems to take like 1.5x as long as origional nuke, yet i wiped out a whole screens worth of units with 1 missile.
The thing can take down a fleet of Capital Ships! :0 >:)

Also, (aimed at DarkVamp) in the movie DV made, was that lag? Youtube was not lagging on my computer, yet it seemed like it was.

Rover is indeed in the latest Mayhem Beta 6. Peacemaker prolly uses a specific weapon designed for it,so it's not a good idea to change its weapon,unless you know what you're doing.

Howie is at T2

I'm not a modder,though,i'm just a naive fail modeler that helped gamma to make some of Mayhem's models.So i wonder where my opinion lies,maybe somewhere out there. :)

gamma,work on beta 7 please. :)
