Welcome to the 2017 Mod of the Year results! With top 100 voting having taken place over the last 20 days, the results have now been tallied and we are ready to announce the winners! Below you will find the Top 10 Mods of 2017.

While you’re at it, you can also check out the Top 10 Indie Games of 2017, or join the site in anticipation for next year’s awards to register a mod of your own or vote for those you think deserve recognition in 2018.

Honourable Mentions

With so many fantastic mods posting major updates and leveraging their passionate communities, we’d like to direct your praise and attention to these honourable mentions. A honorable mention is given for polling strongly in the awards, but being ineligible due to placing higher in a previous year, or if a significant update was not released in 2017:

Mod of the Year Top 10

SWAT: Elite Force is a massive overhaul of SWAT 4: The Stetchkov Syndicate, making it into a more realistic tactical police simulator. Featuring new and more realistic equipment, merged campaigns, extra missions, permadeath, better AI, and bug fixes.

Welcome to the 19th century: The American colonies have revolted, gained their independence and they are now nations, the Natives have resisted colonization and struggle to keep their identities, the ancient Asian civilizations are now an active part of the world scenario and have to play their cards right to protect themselves, and in the Balkans, people fight for their independence from once powerful empires. There was one spot on Earth, however, that was ignored for a long time... We're at the modern era and all empires have focused their attention on this long forgotten, but now desirable, region.

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 100 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.

Explore the island of Vvardenfell as you never have before, with a world built anew to be both alien and familiar to the Morrowind you knew before. New adventures await, with new exciting areas to see and explore, and new artifacts just waiting to be discovered. This is a complete overhaul for Morrowind, adding countless new details, weapons, armors and much more for you to see and do.

Age of the Ring is a mod for Rise of the Witch-king. It's set during the final years of the Third Age of Middle-earth, and features content from both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings film trilogies and J.R.R. Tolkien's novels. Our primary goal is to represent the cultures, warriors, and heroes of that era in a way that is accurate to the source material, engaging in terms of gameplay, and balanced around RotWK's 2.02 community patch.

The Empire at War Remake is a complete overhaul mod that aims to remake Empire at War.
It aims to keep everything you loved about Empire at War: the hardpoint system, capital class warships, unique faction units and playstyles, while providing everything you expect from a 2017 game: Game balance, design vision and great graphics.

Third Age: Reforged is a submod for Third Age 3.2 that aims to overhaul the multiplayer aspect of the mod by thoroughly rebalancing the units and factions while also implementing new units, custom scenarios and other features.

Twisted Insurrection is a standalone game based on a heavily modified Tiberian Sun engine. The game features a completely new in-depth storyline which puts you in an alternate timeline where the Brotherhood of Nod were victorious during the first Tiberian War rather than GDI. Do you have what it takes to drag the shattered Global Defense Initiative out of ruin? Or will you crush all who oppose the will of Kane and his Inner Circle? The choice is yours commander.

From the makers of Thrawn's Revenge: Imperial Civil War, Ascendancy is a Star Wars mod set after the Battle of Endor in the Star Wars Galaxy. Fight for galactic ascendancy as multiple factions from this period in Star Wars history. In the wake of the Empire's collapse, the fledgling New Republic is working to build an entirely new order out of the wreckage. Meanwhile, on the edges of the galaxy, the Empire of the Hand, set up by Thrawn during his exile in the unknown regions with the covert support of the Chiss Ascendancy and Emperor Palpatine, strives to unite the galaxy in preparation to face outside threats...


Brutal Doom

Doom mod

Brutal Doom has polled strongly in previous awards, but has never won. Tirelessly releasing major updates year after year that takes Doom into a whole new level, we couldn't be happier to crown Brutal Doom the 2017 champion. It makes the game much more violent than before. There's much more blood, plus it adds unique gibs, death animations, dismemberments, headshots, executions, fire and explosion particles, flares, shadows over all objects, and much more. Everything in Brutal Doom is extremely intense. Everything sounds louder, looks bigger, moves faster, and hits harder.

Congratulations to all the modders and community members who participated in the 2017 Mod of the Year awards! We wish you all the best for your continued modding efforts into the new year and beyond.

Does Kane Come back in this alternate universe or was he wiped out forever and lives on as a saint/messiah in Nod's religion of Tiberium?

Kane's body was never found. Many within Nod hope he will return, while GDI & GT, believe him to be dead.

Thanks! last question, are you guys doing cinematic sequences since live actors are too costly when you finish the game in the far future? Especially like back in TS when you won the battle you got to see some cool CGI battle sequences like the Wolverines getting the crap kicked out of them by the Nod Base Laser turrets?

But I think that the best tracks from this game:

1) Command & Conquer Twisted Insurrection - Storm

2) Command & Conquer Twisted Insurrection - Corroded Valves

3) Command & Conquer Twisted Insurrection - Designing the

4) Command & Conquer Twisted Insurrection - Fear and Suspicion

5) Command & Conquer Twisted Insurrection - Post War Melancholy

6) Command & Conquer Twisted Insurrection - Anticipation

Most of all I liked of course Storm & Post War Melancholy. Thanks to the composer.


1) By the way, it would be nice to edit SUN.ini and enter the video in the column:
ForceLowestDetailLevel = False
Video.Windowed = False
NoWindowFrame = False ClientResoluti ClientResoluti
BorderlessWindowedClient = True
UseGraphicsPatch = True
ScreenWidth = 500
ScreenHeight = 360
StretchMovies = no

You will get an excellent screen resolution, the main thing is that the objects, buildings and units will not be small, as was previously in this version, but as expected are normal (the image quality is good)

2) I also recommend to the mod author to return the map generator - as it was in Tiberian Son - so that it was possible to create a map without a map editor.

3) Also change in the folder INI in the file .lesi.ini - find the value of MultiplayerAICM = 10000,10000,10000; Multiplier to AI initial money reserve and change it to this:
MultiplayerAICM = 0,0,0; Multiplier to AI initial money reserve. This will give in the battle mode for computer players including bots allies, honesty of the game, all resources will be exactly the same as was originally set in the settings, for example, wrote 2500 then everyone started playing with 2500 credits.

And Last Tip. - Do something like lighting on many maps, and at night the textures are not clearly visible, by the way, you could put the day, night, noon, morning in the Tiberian Sun card generator. :)

By the way I wanted to ask a question. I opened the map editor from twisted Insurrection and saw Kane there, I also saw the Chronosphere from Red Alert, is it a hint that Kane is alive and the time machine is given to him by screenshots judging from the C & C 4 ending? ^_^

Dear ErastusMercy,

Thank you guys for making the greatest mod "Twisted Insurrection" and I really love the mod so much. However, I have some issues on the GDI faction and I believe I should share with you guys. This is not bashing opinion, I knew that TI set up an alternative timeline when Nod win the 1st war not GDI from the Tiberium Sun so the Nod faction would be overpower to GDI in realistic. I will tell you some opinions on the GDI:

1. Goliath tank is pretty weak to again Nod Units and even Scorpion tank can OP Goliath tank in number.
2. M.L.R.S. Walker, in my opinion, should have ability to deploy like shooting the launcher with longer range than non-deploy when it deployed because the unit need the highly skillful players to use when they are used to again the Nod unit like Hammerhead and Tremors Artillery.
3. I believe GDI should have rocket launcher infantry.

There is one thing I hope you guy can figure out in the future. I hope you guys can figure out how to build the "aircraft station" build limit like Red Alert 2. I hope you guys can figure out how to let aircrafts fly through the shadow like Red Alert 2.

An amateur player.

Hello again.

1. Goliath tanks will generally win in a one on one with an Eclipse (just barely) but when fighting massed Scorpions it's probably best to mix them with other units. Role wise the Scorpion is sort of the Attack Cycle of the TI era.
2. You may be glad to hear that the MLRS Walker is getting a weapon overhaul, while the current one is visually impressive it's more of a liability.
3. Technically GDI do have a rocket soldier, the Marauder is armed with a rocket launcher.

thanks you

Good stuff but some missions definitely need improvement on the instructions front.

Also, why change so many textures and sprites but keep the con yards the same? Why not just put the effort in to changing those instead of replacing fine looking sprites?

Also if you can do ANYTHING to change the AI on hornets so they don't insist on getting a terrible surround and get shot down, can they just attack if in range? It's brutal and when a mission makes you use them it's infuriating.

Snipers also look pretty much like regular infantry which is extremely annoying and makes focusing them in groups pretty much impossible.

A really stunnning mod for the new graphical power alone. What the team had to do to make Tiberian Sun comply with these new effects, I don't even want to know, because it most likely has to involve human sacrifice. Cities look like what was promised before the release of TS by Westwood and the Tiberium lifeforms are as strange and varied as they should have been, even outdoing Firestorm's alien feeling. A few times I thought the units needed more balancing, but overall, every unit feels like it…
