Dawn of the Tiberium Age (DTA) is a stand-alone mod that combines and enhances Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert using a heavily customized Tiberian Sun engine. Featuring all 4 factions (GDI, Nod, Allies and Soviets) with extremely polished gameplay, DTA allows you to mix and match the factions as you'd like in tons of new multiplayer maps and challenge yourself in dozens of original missions.
Prepare for battle, Commanders! A major update for DTA has arrived, and it includes our new Advanced AI! Check out its trailer below!
Advanced AI is a new game option that entirely replaces the base-building logic of the original TS AI engine. To list some of its features, the new AI:
These changes make the AI much more interesting and fun to play against, especially on big maps with lots of resources to harvest!
The Advanced AI checks the direction of its enemy when placing down defenses, which often makes it build formidable defensive lines.
The new AI is far from the only improvement in version 11. There's also a bunch of bugfixes, balance changes and QoL updates! There are too many of them to list individually in this news, but we'll highlight one specific item.
The message list, usually shown top-left, is now instead drawn at the bottom-left of the screen, like in most modern RTS games. The top-left message interface simply doesn't scale very well to modern widescreen displays. There is, however, a toggle for this in the client if you prefer the classic behaviour.
Like almost all DTA updates, version 11 also comes with new multiplayer maps! Some older maps have also been remade as improved versions.

Anyone who has ever played Tiberian Sun or its derivatives know that the engine has historically suffered from severe instability-causing bugs.
Co-Op Multiplayer has been particularly problematic. When playing against AIs, many players have sometimes seen a "Synchronization error!" (also known as "Reconnection error") dialog stop their game. These sync errors have been very hard to debug and figure out, but we've finally made progress and managed to reduce these errors by a significant number.
The dialog above has been significantly less common for us while testing DTA v11 compared to earlier versions.
In addition to fixing desyncs, we also fixed one AI-related bug that could sometimes cause random crashes.
For more detailed information about changes in DTA version 11, check the full changelog.
As usual, if you have DTA installed already, you can fetch the update by using the client's updater.
Otherwise, you can download DTA from our Downloads page here at ModDB.
We've had great fun playing Skirmish and Co-Op against the new AI, and we hope you will also enjoy it to at least the same degree. See you on the battlefield, Commanders!
Earlier in the spring, we released the first half of our Co-Op remake of the Tiberian Dawn GDI campaign, and promised to deliver more. Now we're releasing...
This is the full version of Dawn of the Tiberium Age v11.0: all files necessary to play are included, so you also don't need to have the original game...
