Tactix is a SP/MP modification designed to bring CNC3 gameplay to less of an arcade experience, and focus on strategy as opposed to rushing and spamming units. Those strategies still apply and can be used, though in Tactix, they will prove less effective. This mod will appeal to turtles, and comp stompers in the sense that a well built base is a true fortress, and only a smart opponent or overwhelming force can breach it. Contrast to the safety your base affords you, each unit has been beefed up to do more damage, and receive more based on type. The balance to this, is that each units has an equally potent counter. Every unit has an advantage and a weakness, despite their seemingly overwhelming destructive powers. There is always the right tool for the job, but only if you think it through.
Its been a long time since I've played C&C3, let alone worked on Tactix. Good times. Yet after all these years, I still have the source files! So I installed the game recently and got back into it. That trip down memory lane was so much fun, it brought about a renewed interest in finishing Tactix, and cleaning up a few of the bugs that remain.
As such I am in the process of fixing it up now, and Tactix 1.7 should be live very soon.
The last version of my mod, you may know of as v1.66. I shared it on filefront many years ago, with explicit conditions on how the mod could be used and shared. Sadly those conditions were broken and you can imagine my surprise when I found my mod, on moddb. Yet that unauthorized mirror, will never be updated. As I never released the source files to anyone.
But enough of that drama, as its no longer an issue....
So version 1.7 is coming... You might be wondering what happened to 1.67 or even 1.68?
Well, at this point I think incremental changes involving multiple decimals are unnecessary. That and after almost a decade, why not skip a digit or two? So from here on out, updates will be in half points. 1.70, 1.75, 1.80 and you get the idea.
I have provided a legitimate version of my mod Tactix 1.66 in the downloads section, with the original readme file unaltered, for you to enjoy.
Stay tuned for future updates...
Every single structure, unit and weapon has been altered in one way or another.
