Have fun!

PS. I originally released this package a few days ago at Project Perfect Mod ( Ppmforums.com ). Since then I've released multiple bug-fixing updates, so be prepared to download a few dozen extra megabytes after downloading and extracting that ZIP package.

Looks pretty nice. I loved the skirmish lobby on TI and DTA.

I've also been feeling like playing the TS campaign again, it has been so long. (IIRC, the last time I played it was in 2009 or 2010.)

I also never played Firestorm. I could never find a TFD copy to buy, but even after EA made them freeware I didn't get them, even though I knew about them.

That was stupid... xD

Well, now you have an easy way of getting both TS and Firestorm right here ;) In an enhanced form, too.
