Titan: XCIX is a first person adventure that takes place aboard the ill fated star ship of the same name. When an accident rips apart a lone ship on a routine mission, the crew find themselves fighting for survival, and each other in a unique Single Player experience, that's been in the making for the past two years.

Humanity is at the point of extinction when a terrible accident destroys the majority of life on earth, during what is now known as The First Contact Event. Although official contact had been set with very strict Quarantine rules, unsanctioned contact between the Human populace and Vaedran Trade ships meant that diseases that originated from Vaedra were easily passed to the people of Earth, causing a catastrophic chain of events.
The people of Vaedra (a long lost offshoot of Humanity), racked by guilt, gathers up what's left of Human civilisation and over the space of many years, slowly integrates them into their own society, to give them a better life away from the wastes of Earth.


But life is far from better, hospitality soon turns to indifference, and intolerance, eventually pushing Humans to the outskirts of their new home. There only choice is to work in the jobs nobody else wants, where they can be secluded from the masses. Deep space mining, and working among the
Vaedran shipping lanes between the colonies forms the basis of the United Human Remnant (UHR), a group that gives homes to Humans, and Vaedrans alike, among the stars.

Among these "homes" is Titan: XCIX, a previously decommissioned trade ship, donated to the UHR for the purpose of allowing Humanity to sustain its own trade route. Work aboard Titan is slow, cramped, and often dangerous, but the allowed independence more than makes up for the conditions aboard the ship.


But even on the fringe of space, bad blood boils ...

Developed single handedly by Robin "IZaNaGI" Molde (Jailbreak!: Source, Survival Mod II for JK:JA), Players will face many challenges that will test their brains rather than their trigger fingers.

Hello again everyone. Today I would like to take a moment to announce the long overdue release of Titan: XCIX 1.1 This update fixes the inability to load the mod on previous versions of Source caused by the Steampipe update in 2013. Also included are several bug fixes that were caused by the upgrade to Source 2013 included scripting issues, missing sounds and broken textures.

DOWNLOAD 1.1 NOW

At this point I would like to address long time fans of the mod that may be still waiting for news of Titan: XCIX PART TWO. After releasing the initial entry it became apparent that my ambitions were too big for what I could achieve inside the Source engine, so I decided to move to an engine that allowed me more freedom to create the game I wanted to make, as well as lessening the amount of work needed to complete it. As a result PART TWO was swallowed into a new project, 'A Crew of Pecking Crows' ...

Built in the RPGMakerVX Ace game tool and taking part in a similar universe, the player will take control of his own variant of Titan: XCIX known as 'Crows Nest'. The game is a open world RPG where you Captain your ship on a mission to find the missing Titan: XCIX. I've been working on this project for over four years and it's starting to come along nicely (if not rather slowly).

The game allows the player to completely control most facets of Captaining his/her own starship, including exploration, turn based combat (including ship to ship battles), creating and joining your own away teams and space PIRACY!!! It's still a very long way from completion, but I'm sure you get the general idea of what I'm trying to achieve. I'll be putting together an indieDB page at some point but in the meantime you can track progress on my Twitter page at @KrispyTheKorn

Thanks for reading. Please enjoy the work that's gone into creating and updating Titan: XCIX (both old fans and new). If any issues persist, by all means get in touch and I hope you look forward to my future projects.

----------//////////WARNING!!! CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!\\\\\\\\\\----------

Wow! And I thought Valve were horrendous with their cliff hangers, yours takes the cake! >_<

Not sure if you are still working at all to improve this mod, as you are no longer making the sequel or at least on the Source engine. But there were a few things that did not work or nagged me. As soon as you make it up the ladder by climbing the boxes and barrel and meet up with the girl and the other guy holding the gun, when they begin talking to the commander/captain on the view screen the speech is not there or only a faint whisper from the commander/captain. Thankfully there are subtitles, but I reloaded it twice and the second time it started bad, improved and then went back to just a whisper, while the people that were with you their replies were alright.

The voice acting was really good, some of the best I have heard on a mod/total conversion! But for some reason, compared to the rest of the game sounds, at times seemed a little too low altogether. I mean there are the subtitles, but if you are going to use this kind of talent, they should be heard crystal clear unless the environment deems it necessary to quiet them, such as the muffling through a door. And I highly doubt it was the microphones they were using, as they sounded crystal clear, just low.

There was no sprinting. I am not sure if the game was so short that it would of been even shorter with the ability to run, but my god was the walking pace slow. Being outside and I assume having magnetic boots so you do not fly off the ship is one thing and builds tension when you are trying to get out of the meteor showers. But just every day travel from deck to deck... just unnecessary.

The battery event. It was odd that you had to go around the entire deck and could only get the juice from each station once, but if the battery touched water you had to regain the lost energy and magically all the stations you had visited previously are now available for charging again. I mean I know it was a game play mechanic, but it just made no sense.

The AI... AloNG wITh tHe nO SpRIntInG yOu HaD A GuY WhO taLKeD REaLLllLLlLLy sLoooWllYyyyyy aNd HiS teXt loOKed LiKE ThiS fOR thE suBTitLEs. It WAs reAlLlLlyyYYY aNnoYing.

The ending... you could of allowed for a little gun battle, but we get nothing... absolutely nothing. We did not even get to use the wrench on someone ourselves, it was all done by cut scenes. You still get a 10, but you could of handled the ending better. X_X

Great mod! Although something was missing for me in terms of graphics. Mostly because of the Source Engine. So I used ReShade to create a preset with some minor adjustments for a sci-fi setting like this. Let me know what you think:

Just replayed this on a widescreen, previous ancient 4:3 monitor, though of high spec finally died and I have to say it still ranks as one of the more impressive HL2 mods. It still leaves me feeling I want more; to see how the story continues especially as I have a gun at the end!
Thank you for the patch.
So many broken mods out there!

Quite an interesting piece of work here. Titan: XCIX has a well written classic Sci-Fy genre story-line, well constructed and visually artistic ( nice work on the text also btw ). A refreshing change of pace HL2 mod. "...Players will face many challenges that will test their brains rather than their trigger fingers..." That being said; I'm a big Sci-Fi fan ( hell, I'm playing Deus Ex again right now ), so I can appreciate the mod more in the sense of it's entertainment strength being more in the…
