C&C2: Tiberian Sun is the sequel to C&C: Tiberian Dawn. Set in the early 21st century, Tiberian Sun once again pits the GDI against the Brotherhood of Nod in a struggle for control of the planet. With an epic storyline that unfolds as play progresses, players learn the reasons behind the worldwide outbreak of Tiberium and what happened to the notorious Nod leader Kane, who was presumed dead at the end of the first C&C.

We've been somewhat quiet this year. A peek at our change log page however reveals that despite our laziness with writing news posts, we haven't been just idling; we've released 11 updates this year. These updates have focused more on improving and optimizing the game engine, balance, and our existing content rather than pumping out new maps and missions. We are, however, also working on new playable content that we hope to release with an update closer to Christmas. But let's first go over the most important changes in our smaller updates this year. We'll only cover the most significant changes. For smaller changes you can check out the full change log.

Balance

The Sea Shadow and Soviet Ekranoplan weapons were reworked. The Sea Shadow now has a cluster missile that splits early, while the Soviet Ekranoplan is no longer an aicraft carrier but only fires missiles instead. The Behemoth was found somewhat too game-deciding, so its rate of fire was lowered while the spread of its flames was increased. This makes it more of an option to dodge its projectiles and avoid the damage with fast units, while it still deals a lot of damage when it hits, with the flames further increasing the damage through their damage-over-time effect. We also made its elite weapon more interesting with chemical flames.

Technical

In the original game's multiplayer, the map was always revealed when you died. This was bad for co-op missions as the reveal could spoil missions, and it also made it possible to spoil team-based PvP matches like 2v2s and 3v3s, as one dead player could tell their teammate about the other team's forces. Now the map is only revealed in FFA games and regular (non-mission) co-op games.

dkeeton and FunkyFr3sh of CnCNet have worked hard on improving the TS-DDRAW renderer, which now finally solves all performance and menu visibility issues for most people. Performance of online games has also been improved significantly through enhancements to the game engine's networking code. Speaking of online games, we've also had a decent number of people online lately.

We also found a critical bug in the game engine that made it reset the difficulty level of a mission to Normal whenever you re-started a non-campaign mission. In other words, if you've played DTA's singleplayer missions, they've possibly been either significantly harder or easier than intended, depending on which difficulty level you selected. This is fixed now. Talking of singleplayer missions, we've also added 3 new missions since DTA 1.16's release last year: Drive's remakes of Sarin Gas 1 and 2 were added in last December, while Morpher's East Asian Front was added in last weekend's update.

There's also the usual bunch of smaller client and game engine updates.

Mapping

Mappers have got new terrain to play with; the temperate platform tile set now has ramps and smaller variants of Nooze's big crater have been added. The interior theater has been expanded with an interior platform tile set, and creating interior areas has been made easier with visible shadows for interior wall pieces in the map editor. We've also made road endings that lead into a cave.


Future updates

We reached the 8th place in MOTY voting last year. We never really got around to thanking you for it, so here it goes: thank you! It was a really great and unexpected surprise, and we got there thanks to your votes.


Despite our silence and these updates we've also been working on more things behind the scenes. I've personally spent more time studying the TS game engine with other CnCNet team members, which makes fixing bugs and implementing new functionality easier in the future. We've also been working on new maps, missions and co-op missions, which we hope we can deliver to you with a larger update near Christmas.

Stay tuned for more updates during the coming weeks! Or if you'd rather prefer an alternative news source and discussion forum, you can also reach out to us in our new official Discord channel on CnCNet's server: Discord.gg

First started stalking TS mods about 10 years ago (gosh Im getting old...), when I tried to get some friends use these as LAN games; they didnt like them (C&C in general), and we moved on. Forgot TS altogether, finding AoE2 which I nowadays enjoy. Until my PC gets busted and I find myself re-breathing life to old laptop and I found the TS installer in some backup, along with a HTML bookmark of THIS page.

Sad to see Tiberian Odyssey is still not released :P, great screens on that one. Of these mods, TI is the one I played back then, and Im glad to see its still alive.

Good job keeping this game alive, much like AoE2!

Greatest mod in the moddb in my personal opinion.Congrats designers of Ti strangely your mod is worth to spend hours n after u finish a mission u want to ply more.
So i have a request i really like the cult idea ( coated bald guys hitting their heads i cant remember the mission). Could you make them a regular unit? Have no idea with which role but even for ambient n no use i can hire them for 5oobucs each.
Is it possible GDI to have a futuristic mammoth tank?Cannons for vehicles n rockets for infantry n air like ra 1.At least pls make some structures capturable
so we can produce old mammoth.
At the mission eagles fall so many units n ai makin the mission unplyable.I have a very strong computer n all the other missions speed at full.

I cant ply skirmish but i can ply campaign dont know why but its throwing me back to regular menu without doing nothing.

Guys really thank you i cant describe how i like your mod.Keep up the phenomenal work.

The futurisitc and crysis atmosphere is the most immersing and best one I have ever experienced, so far even now I would vote for this game. Westwood at its best!
