Shattered Paradise is an expansion for Tiberian Sun on Openra, it's goal is to (im)balance the game by adding new factions (Scrin, Mutants and Cabal) and reworking the original sides, all of this to create a game a little more varied and balanced than TS. The mod puts a lot of emphasis on making the factions as asymmetric as possible.

Post news Report RSS Shattered Paradise has been released

After 3 years of hard work, the mod is ready to be released, finally.

Posted by on

After around three years of work that included nine months of constant gameplay testing, we are finally in a situation to release a playable build of Shattered Paradise.

Due to the fact that the core Tiberian Sun mod for OpenRA has missing or incomplete features, Shattered Paradise was developed on top of it with employing workarounds or omitting the aforementioned core features. It has the goal to extend and improve upon the feel and gameplay of the original game and for that we used all the tools we had available. We’ve added more playable factions, reworked many units and sacrificed a few of the original niche aspects.

I want to stress this to anyone interested in the project: we did not aim to replicate everything featured in Tiberian Sun to the letter. We love the original game, we’ve improved what we could improve and axed what we felt was harmful. It’s our own rendition of the Tiberium Universe, Also, I want to make it very clear that the decisions we’ve taken are not the responsibility of the OpenRA crew.

Having mentioned that, here is the link to the Shattered Paradise discord server where you can join our player base. Discord.gg The download link of the latest build of the game also can be found there.

Moreover, for now our efforts are still focused only on the multiplayer aspect of the game as our resources are currently limited.

First of all: congrats on the first official release!
Secondly: does it require OpenRA (as in: it's a mod) or is it standalone?

It is standalone. OpenRA offers an SDK since the middle of the last year, which basically allows modders to generate installers which package their own engine version and strip off the default first-party mods.

I have great nostalgia for Tiberian Sun and I will really like this mod. I was hoping to play as the three new factions: the returning Scrin from C&C 3, CABAL and the Forgotten.

I wish we had released an OpenRA ts mod already, but this is great. An even better replacement. Congratulations.

It seems like there's a lot of potential with Shattered Paradise. I'm a huge TS fan and have been waiting for OpenTS desperately since OpenRA. I just wish so, so much that OpenRA had the options to separately control the volume for unit voices, as I really cannot stand the more 'flavourful' unit voicing that seems to have taken over C&C. The original TS voicing was perfect for the atmosphere and feeling of the TS universe, and sadly I find Shattered Paradise unplayable because the voicing is a little over the top in my opinion. I would hate to be negative about something like a mod as the work that goes into it is ridiculous and this mod has clearly had a fair bit of work done to it already. But I do really want to play it, so I feel compelled to post honest feedback.

Sorry for the late response.

There were discussions within OpenRA developers a few weeks ago to separate sound types akin how the games had with the groups with SFX/EVA notification/unit responses, but nothing grown out of that yet so far.

I'm on the other side though with unit responses - preRA2 voiceovers are too generic and boring excluding some units (RA Shock Trooper, TS cyborgs) and even some of the nongeneric sets are very terrible (TS Hijacker, RA Mechanic).

I can understand that the SP harvester can be added to the latter list, but I don't find the other sets that terrible tbh and even if we start replacing/adding voiceovers longterm, I'd still keep that one around limited to the Forg one ultimately.

The volume differences are known but we haven't came up with a definite fix yet.
