Dawn of the Tiberium Age (DTA) is a stand-alone mod that combines Tiberian Dawn (C&C 95) and Red Alert. While classic mode gets as close to the original game-play and balance as possible, Enhanced mode provides improved game balance and a lot of fun new stuff. DTA features many customization options for Skirmish and multiplayer (where you can play as GDI, Nod, Allies and Soviet on over 200 maps), challenging original singleplayer missions, as well as co-op missions. Since this is a stand-alone mod, you don't require anything but the mod itself to be able to play: the original game is not required.
The Dawn of the Tiberium Age: ****: Look For the Dawn
Dawn of the Tiberium Ages (DTA) is a Tiberian sun mod that looks to recreate the game that started it all, Tiberian Dawn. In that regard, DTA is a massive success, with the mod capturing the look, spirit and feel of the original game. It does not stop there however, as DTA takes Tiberian Dawn to the next level, including skirmish modes and online support for fans.
Graphically, DTA mimics it's ancestral father perfectly, the charmingly simple graphics being recreated smoothly for the Tiberian Sun engine. Where DTA really shines is with the addition of the "enhanced" mode which allows the player to play with new units and new game modes, including a naval style of skirmish. DTA also boats a few single player missions, but these are few at the moment but there is promise of new ones to come in the future.
There a not many bugs, although the limits of the Tiberian Sun engine are shown from time to time. Despite this, game play is smooth and relatively bug free and balanced.
Anyone who grew up playing the traditional Command and Conquer game will love this mod, as it brings back the old style of Tiberian Dawn, with several pleasant twists.
Free Standalone game based on a classic... Whats more to ask for?
This mod is amazing despite a few bugs, I can't wait for the next release!
Very well designed mod. It captures the original feel of Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert. The addition of all four factions with working AI is a very tedious task to implement within TS and the mod developers should be commended. Also having an original and enhanced game choice is a nice addition.
A great, if not fantastic remake of an old classic. A must try for any diehard Command and Conquer fan, and especially now that part of the Win8 problem has been circumvented.
I love the mod for TS it bring the TD feeling ande the tow modes is amazing. Good work. ;)
Best of the best of the best among the best clasics brought by best team.
*cough* too much "best" words
Despite the few issues i have found in this game, i have received help on this forum so fast it allmost blew my head of!
The new units are awsome, and ofc my aim of the game is "MORE BUILDINGS!!! BIGGER BASE!" And this Mod added in two more factions to the Strategy game i hold dearest RA1. Ofc after a few skirmishes i feel it lacks buildings :P
I dont really care as much to what they do, as long as they are unique and look awsome in my base.
The units that are added (Especialy the Project 941 <3 ) Look insane, the carrier looks like the real thing! Instead of that hillarious version RA2 made.
This mod makes me wish i could do my own modding since i have a HUGE mod project planned in my head for C&C Universe.
10/10 Is well worth!
Probably one of the best currently released mods for TS, until Tiberian odyssey but until then we have DTA and TI.
