Long ago, the galaxy had known peace. Paradise was ruled with the hand of science, and the hand was that of the galactic governing body known as the Core. Ironically, it was the Core's ultimate victory, the victory over death itself, that brought about the downfall of its paradise and started the war that would decimate a million worlds.
The immortality process, known as "patterning," involved the electronic duplication of brain matrices, allowing the transfer of consciousness into durable machines. Effectively it meant immortality, and the Core decreed the process mandatory for all citizens in order to ensure their safety.
However, there were many citizens unwilling to toss aside their bodies so casually, many indeed who regarded patterning as an atrocity. They fled to the outer edges of the galaxy, forming a resistance movement that became known as the Arm. War began, though it was never officially declared by either side.
The Arm developed high-powered combat suits for its armies, while the Core transferred the minds of its soldiers directly into similarly deadly machines. The Core duplicated its finest warriors thousands of times over. The Arm countered with a massive cloning program. The war raged on for more than 4,000 years, consuming the resources of an entire galaxy and leaving it a scorched wasteland.
Both sides lay in ruins. Their civilizations had long since vanished, their once vast military complexes were smashed. Their armies were reduced to a few scattered remnants that continued to battle on ravaged worlds. Their hatred fueled by millenia of conflict, they would fight to the death. For each, the only acceptable outcome was the complete and utter annihilation of the other.
Not exactly on the planned schedule, but here it is. Version Alpha 4c with its assortment of new units, improvements, adjustments, and bug fixes!
This patch adds several fundamental units to the game that had been missing so far. Each faction can now build their own dedicated transport aircraft specifically set up to be used for aggressive drops to the enemy flanks. While construction aircraft have been able to do this, they are too costly and slow to build in large numbers and not properly set up for the task anyway. In addition, GoK finally has access to their construction submarine and floating shield nodes, while Arm and Core can each build their own floating perimeter defences.
Alpha 4c carries on with the weapon effect overhaul by reworking all weapon projectile models. Not only do these new models have improved appearance, they also fix a variety of glitches related to some previously undocumented quirks of TA engine.
There are also a couple improvements to TA engine once again; target lock and sweetspot fixes have been implemented.
Alpha 4c files and unit guides are available at TA Zero website.
The hotfix, for those who need it, is included within TA Zero Alpha 4c patch archive in a separate folder. The hotfix for Alpha 4 should not be used with Alpha 4c.

This is only for those who can appreciate old games and look past the dated visuals. If you can't, go play something else because this game won't be for you. Plenty of unit variety, a thriving modding community, an excellent soundtrack and many more things make Total Annihilation a truly fantastic RTS of it's time. This game, in my personal opinion, is better than a lot of modern RTS games. You can purchase this game, complete with The Core Contingency and Battle Tactics expansion packs, via digital…
