True Combat is an action packed realism mod where big jumps, fancy strafing and fantasy weapons are no where to be seen. Expect hard fought team-based objective battles where staying alive is only the first challenge you will face. 

  • Tactical mode wherein you aim using the iron sights of the actual gun; read: no crosshairs.
  • Two teams, different mission objectives, emphasising realistic team tactics.
  • Scriptable mission objectives in maps.
  • The ability for different weapons to penetrate different objects with varying degrees of success.
  • Realistic sounds for both enviroment and player.
  • The addition of C4 and smoke grenades to your arsenal.
  • New attachment system for weapon upgrades (scopes, silencers, laser sights, etc.).
  • Brand spankin' new models for the weapons and player.
  • A host of new animations for weapon reloads, player movement, etc.
  • Realistic lens flares, glare, and flash blend effects.
  • Multilayer bullet penetration system.
  • Freeclimb
  • Voice commands for quick communication with teammates.
  • The choice between 4 different huds, including the old-school flavor from previous builds.

I'm happy to announce that ClanBase has set up a ladder for the Q3A mod True Combat!

Version 1.0 of True Combat was released just shy of 2 weeks ago, and already 4 days after it was released it had been downloaded 10'000 times. Accoarding to GameSpy it's the 7th most popular Q3 mod at the moment.

If you want to sign your clan up for the ladder on ClanBase, you can do that here, but I recommend that you read trough the ladder rules before you start playing. If enough clans sign up for the ladder, we may also consider setting up a cup for this mod soon.

Enjoy!

If you can open up maps, I'm fairly sure you'd be able to check texture paths.

Install Quake 3 OR Open Arena.

Extract 'Main' True combat folder to main Open Arena/Q3 folder.

Any extra folders just add to the True Combat Folder.

What is better : True combat or True combat elite?

This is a VERY nice mod indeed.

I play this in Open Arena and it works wonderfully, apart from a few missing textures which is not often at all.
The graphics are impressive for a quake 3 engine game and very realistic.The urban levels set in daylight look VERY similar to those found in something like Half Life 2.

It has bot support and lots of maps along with having more maps to download online.

The main downside is that it is essentially a single player or LAN game now as there are no one online anymore. I find this incredible but understandable as the sequel called TC Elite is slightly better but,does not have bot support single player mode.

This game is completely free as open arena is completely free and the pair together make for one of the best freeware FPS downloads around.

A MUST HAVE.

There is only one server for True Combat -> 82.98.132.66:27961 . Quite a few for True Combat: Elite (Check Xfire under WET, do a search for obj). But eventually, all good things come to an end. True Combat:Elite has more options like leaning and shooting, better graphics. But I have to warn you most of the community sucks.

One thing missing from the Elite version is BOT support.

Thats what makes True Combat such a great mod. When all the Elite servers are gone, its a dead game, whereas TC can still keep going using bots.
