I've never come across that one before...are you sure 15 seconds are not added to the Threshold 19 timer? It did every time I play-tested it

Do you mean the maps' folder names or the names as they appear in game?

Sure, though you'll need to configure Worldbuilder to access Tiberium Essence objects, because you'll need to open the map in Worldbuilder to do it

One last thing since i got your attention. Where do i download the Cabal Faction? It is already available? I could not find it...

Yeah, configuring Worldbuilder is more trouble than it's worth just to change the map names

Carnius hasn't released the Cabal update yet, I'm not sure when it's out

Most impressive. Especially Zone Commando and MK4 with Divine Montauk ˇˇ
Oh, havent expected that I can and will need 3 ion control centers to be built very fast.
Unfortunately Nod mission froze down on me when it was at its best.
I have no idea where is what in that mission.
For its entire (to the death of first ion control center and deployment of MK4)duration I havent found Operations Center and Tib. Chemical Plant.
The right corner of the map with narrow pass, somewhat spawns TE scorpions.
Whereas all my factories(except spawned from Montauk I suppose) trains original EA scorpions.
We miss you. Your sudden leave of discord left us, well, quite struck and aghast.

I HAVE ALSO multiple bugs on gdi side. first one: gdi control centers objectives is marked as unfinished even after building 3 ion control centers, after that cant build more. second: when arriving steel talons their base vanishes but somehow i can see a new tab for their building contruction. third: after destroying nod command center and the montauk, and never losing ion control centers my delay of starlighter is only 5 seconds. fourth: i still managed quickly to destroy the treshhold with the ion cannon but the screen started to shake and just that. no message, no objective, nothing. just shaked till i quit the game. can you please post how it shoudlve worked the whole mission? steel talons base should gain you the ability to build more ion control centers?

1. The objective is to build and MAINTAIN 3 Ion Cannon Control Centres. You don't complete the objective just by building them because if you lose one or more, you have to rebuild them to maintain the advantage.

2. Are you playing on 2.0? The Steel Talons Construction Yard uses a Forgotten building's game id.

3. Destroying the Command Centre adds 15 seconds to the Threshold 19 timer, assuming you built 3 Ion Cannons, the Starbreaker Timer will be ahead by 4 seconds at that point.

4. This is a problem that I've only heard from very view players. I'm not going to look into it, unless I hear more players have that issue, because it the majority of players I've seen/heard have not encountered with it.

Looks like I'll have to patch the Nod version due to an ending exploit I didn't think about, so I'll look into the GDI ending issue too

I wonder about the Nod exploit :D
I guess no matter what GDI can possibly do,
the timer is by default set to Nod victory.
They will never be able to bomb your HQ or Temple, behind all those defences, even tho they spam orca bombers, regularly into single point.
Playing as Nod is practically very easy to win, with almost no chance of defeat (or GDI ever even beating the green BH on hard difficulty)
Playing as GDI is jawbuster and honestly people will probably just spam air only.
Encountered same problem as Radu, with ion cannons(in the last 10 seconds of timer you gotta select the Threshold tower, after Nod HQ center is destroyed) for Starbreaker to activate or the Nod victory ending shall ensue with described stuff.
No problem with Steel Talons Con Yard.
Apart from all con yards are intentionally unpackable, I suppose.
Its has few flies, but still its real deal final mission :D
Great mission, fantastic map, grand lore ending and magnificent credits map
(with Hartzheims "defensive unit" hijink :D)

thanks for explaining! the mission behaves pretty much like you said. i play indeed the game in 2.0 version and i could see the steel talons contruction yard came with the other units but when it unpacked, i could not find it wherever i looked but i finished the objectives with my available units.
played also the nod version. one time i had a display freeze but after a quick load i could finish the mission without further bugs.
In the end i wanna say thank you. i loved very much your campaign.
Good luck in what you are doing now, you sure brought up a lot of value to the community c&c :)

I have a problem. I used the Starbreaker and destroyed the tower, but it didn't mark the objectives as complete. Did I do something wrong? I ask because all I'm getting is a constant shaking screen.

At first I thought it was because I didn't destroy the Montauk. That wasn't it. I tried picking off all of the stragglers, but that wasn't it either. I think it might be because I let an Ion Control Center get destroyed but I built a new one long before the timer ran out. I'm going to retry this again without getting any of the Ion Control Centers destroyed.

Edit: I retried it and the result was the same. I didn't lose any of my Ion Control Centers and I never was low on power. Still shaky cam and no completed objectives.

I really wish I knew what prevented that ending from triggering, but it seems it works for some players and not for others. Every test run I did had the ending show successfully, so I have no idea what the problem is. Sorry that it doesn't work for you, I know it sucks

I'm going to try a few more things to see if I can get this to work.

I did figure a a fix for the Missing ST Conyard issue though. When the ST reinforcements come in, just select the MCV and wait for it to unpack. Once that's is done it ok to move on to other things.

Now with the tower of babel destroyed what's next?
Scrin vowed retaliation at the end of CNC3, do you think you will explore that theme in your next installment?

Air units only space mission with a single ship to support... one can dream.

Look forward to your next work, great work overall!

Thank you!

Unfortunately I have no plans to make a story regarding the Scrin's return. I purposely left it up to the fans to decide which outcome from this finale is canon. Who knows...someone else might want to make their own story about the Scrin's return ;)

I DID IT!!! I finally got my GDI Ending to work properly! Through much trial and error, I think I figured why the ending sequence wasn't triggering for GDI. I think it has to do with my numerous other playthroughs being done on EASY difficulty. For what ever reason, it wouldn't trigger on a EASY playthrough.

I finally played the mission for about feels like the Tenth time (FML.) This time on Normal Difficulty, I played to the End and it finally triggered. I hypothesized that the difficulty might be the issue because I saw playthroughs on higher difficulties and they worked as advertised.

Side note here, I had no issues with the Nod perspective mission. Just GDI.

I just want to say thank you for having patience with me as I figured this out.

I've played all of your story missions and I thought they were great! I've noticed that you've recently been making missions for Kane's Wrath. I can't wait to check those out.

Once again, to anyone else other who had the same problem I had, try it on a higher difficulty.

I just want to say thank you again and sorry for the long post, as I had a lot I wanted to say

I'll see you around. Have a good one. Laters.
