TA Escalation Beta 6.8

It has been a long while since our last release and that is for very good reason. The previous version of ESC has proven to be among our very best releases to date.

Developing Beta 6.8 proved to be lengthier than expected because many of the problems we thought were present in Beta 6.7 were subsequently ironed out over the weeks and months of online play.

However, as always, a few things did need looking into and it is finally time to introduce a couple (actually a lot) of very cool additions to the mod!

First and foremost, ESC 6.8 is now linked with the TA Community Patch and is designed to work with the just released 3.9.02 version.
Aside from many subtle engine improvements (superior pathfinding being a standout), players also now have access to a strategic level view of the battlefield via the ‘MegaMap’ recently engineered by xpoy!

The MegaMap augments all of the features found in the MiniMap and even allows players to select and operate individual units! Be warned, however, MegaMap is very CPU intensive and is not intended to fully replace regular TA viewing mode while playing. It is, like ESC still a work in progress, but we hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

Next, Beta 6.8 includes a number of powerful new units and concepts, including:

Arm Sky Crane / Condor – Arm gets multiple iterations of handy heavy lifters at T2 and T3

Arm Vanguard and Core Flail – The long overdue and highly anticipated T3 AA are here at last!

Core Ambassador – T3 Mobile (Flying) Teleportation anyone?

Core Beholder – The old flying Decimator model repurposed as a T3 high altitude observation station that can see virtually forever.

Core Decimator (redone) – A more modest, but still deadly T3 ground based version of the previous problematic flying version

Oh, and a whole bunch of all new Advanced Hovercrafts are in as well!!!

There are also, of course, scores of tweaks and adjustment that have been implemented to further improve balance and game play – these are detailed below and in the changelog.

A lot of work went into this version of ESC and we hope you enjoy Beta 6.8 even more than our previous releases. As always get online and happy gaming!

Try right clicking on the setup.exe and running as administrator, either that or as you have the original copy of the game, download a cracked copy, or if you're willing to spend money: Gog.com

If you get it from gog.com it works on most opperating systems :). For 7 or 9 dollars you'll get the expansions battle tactics and Core Contingency as well

Still one of the Top 5 mods of all time in any genre on any platform. Of you ever need more models, just let me know. I still remember how to assemble them.

This user is terrible. his brain on easy just makes **** come out of his mouth, and the medium setting just uses a friend to **** into his mouth so he just has to spit it out instead of talking, this is absolutely terrible

yeah, uh thanks, now if your done acting like an idiot, perhaps you should actually go and have a little look at the A.I in-game, im not sure why but ever since I downloaded the "resource pack" and the other compulsory add-on the A.I have been acting very weird, im just putting this out there so hopefully it will be fixed

This mod is better in multiplayer. You can play on Gameranger.

Terrible commentary lolingdevil... TAESC is a multiplayer mod with tons of new features and units to compliment the game. As we are still in development, we never claimed to have a fully functional AI, but plan to eventually include one. In the meantime, I am so sorry you are bitterly disappointed...
