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.

Magnific work.🦾🐜🤖 thank you.

PLEASE REVIEW THIS BALANCE:

1) the destroyer tank is very weak and more expensive than the medium tank, the medium tank is stronger than the destroyer tank.

2) The light tank is very strong, it is the same as the medium tank.

3) NOD has many land vehicle units.

4) GDI does not have a hero tank.

THANK YOU.

1) The Tank Destroyer has higher range and higher burst damage than the Medium tank, which makes it more powerful especially in high numbers, especially when paired with the Enforcer or Machine Gunners.

2) Nod or Allied light tank? The Nod light tank is otherwise roughly as cost-effective, but it has less range than the medium tank, meaning that the light tank is worse when armies grow big. Allied light tank is faster and deals more damage, but has less HP.

3) Yeah. We feel Nod's roster is still in a good place currently.

4) GDI has the X-O Powersuit as a hero vehicle.
