1. What is Twisted Insurrection?

Twisted Insurrection (TI) is a critically acclaimed, standalone modification of Command & Conquer™ Tiberian Sun™. It features a complete redesign of the original game, set in an alternate what-if? timeline where the Brotherhood of Nod was victorious during the first Tiberian War.

Read the full storyline here.

Along with the total overhaul of the original game's visuals, sound effects, and packing an all-new original soundtrack (featuring Frank Klepacki), Twisted Insurrection gives you an entirely new arsenal of forces to command in massive single- and multiplayer battles. Choose between the old rivals GDI and Nod, or pledge your allegiance to the futuristic GloboTech or the elusive Forsaken. Play over 50 brand new solo and co-op missions, covert operations, re-imagined Tiberian Dawn missions and more. Customize your game experience by choosing from dozens of game modes and options.

Placeholder text.

2. How do I install Twisted Insurrection?

Installation is very simple. Just follow these three steps:

  1. Download the mod from our official Mod DB site
  2. Extract the .zip package to an empty directory*
  3. Run TwistedInsurrection.exe

Pro tip: Twisted Insurrection uses an intermediary client app through which you can configure, set up and start the game. If you already have TI version 0.39 or later installed, you can update the mod via the update notification on the client.

*Twisted Insurrection is standalone, therefore it does NOT require Tiberian Sun to be installed. Attempting to install Twisted Insurrection on top of Tiberian Sun will NOT work.

Placeholder text.

3. Do I need Tiberian Sun to play Twisted Insurrection?

No. Twisted Insurrection is standalone and runs by itself. You do not need Tiberian Sun or any other Command & Conquer game installed to play Twisted Insurrection. See the above warning.

Placeholder text.

4. Can I play Twisted Insurrection online?

Yes. Twisted Insurrection uses CnCNet which makes online play a breeze. First, make sure you are connected to the internet, then click the CnCNet button on the client main menu. Log in with your prefered username, and you will be sent to the Twisted Insurrection multiplayer lobby. There you can host and join games and chat with friends. You can also visit other CnCNet games' lobbies.

If you encounter any problems with CnCNet, seek help from the support channels on their website.

Placeholder text.

5. Where can I keep track of Twisted Insurrection?

Here's a list of all our official channels:

Placeholder text.

6. Where can I report bugs and share feedback?

We are always looking to improve the quality of Twisted Insurrection and squash any bugs that are left crawling around. If you have come across any issues or see anything that could be improved, please head over to one of our support channels and let us know as soon as you can:

Note: Please keep in mind that, as Twisted Insurrection is not a finished product, there may be a few placeholder relics from Tiberian Sun. These will be replaced in due time, but until then, please do not report placeholder graphics.

Placeholder text.

7. Why does the game freeze after I save?

The game hasn't actually frozen, it's a rendering issue which causes the menu to become invisible. This is caused by an incompatible renderer. Exit the game, go to the client settings, and on the display tab, select a different renderer. The best renderer depends on your system setup, but CnC-DDraw and TS-DDraw support most modern systems.

Placeholder text.

8. Why are Harvesters and some of the units invisible?

This happens if you've installed Twisted Insurrection on your Tiberian Sun directory. TI is standalone, meaning you must install it on an empty folder. See Question #2 for more information.

Placeholder text.

9. What's ReShade and how do I use it?

ReShade is a post-processing visual effects utility that lets you modify and improve the game's visuals in real-time. You can tweak colors, lighting and apply various pre-defined visual effects (shaders) such as bloom and light rays.

To use ReShade in Twisted Insurrection, follow these steps:

  1. In the TI client settings, select either the CnC-DDraw or TS-DDraw renderer.
  2. Turn on Enable ReShade shaders.
  3. Once you're in-game, use the Home key to open the ReShade menu. You can use one of the included presets, or make your own by following the tutorial.

Placeholder text.

10. Will you add tabs and/or other modern features to the sidebar?

Unfortunately the sidebar is one of the TS engine's many hardcoded limitations. Unless someone figures out how to reverse-engineer the sidebar, we have no way to change it.

Placeholder text.

11. My old custom map no longer works. How do I fix it?

Use MapTool's update profile to update it. You can access this tool in the Map Editor's Tools menu, or in the Map Editor folder in your TI directory.

After you've updated the map, open it in a text editor like Notepad, find the [Basic] section, then add this line under it:

GameModes=

List any game modes there that you want the map to appear in, e.g. GameModes=Default,Meat Grinder,Unholy Alliance,Twisted Dawn

Note that the it's written as GameModes. There may be an older key called GameMode which is redundant.

Placeholder text.

12. Will we see the addition of CABAL or the Scrin?

In this alternate timeline, CABAL evolved via a slightly different path. The smug AI is still the Nod equivalent to GDI's EVA, but not as independent as in Firestorm. As for the Scrin, it is unlikely they will make a direct appearance.

Placeholder text.

13. Have you considered porting over to OpenRA?

So much time and effort has gone into building TI on the TS engine, it's unlikely that we'll start over on unfamiliar grounds. At least not in the foreseeable future.

Placeholder text.

14. Can I use your assets in my own mod?

Generally no. Twisted Insurrection and all of its assets, with the exception of original Tiberian Sun assets and public assets as listed in the credits, are property of the Twisted Insurrection Team. You are not permitted to use any proprietary assets from Twisted Insurrection in any public project without explicit permission from the developers.

If you wish to use our assets for your own private and personal use, this is of course allowed, but any form of redistribution of the mod assets is strictly forbidden, with or without credit unless you've been given permission.

Twisted Insurrection is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 Creativecommons.org

Placeholder text.

15. Why is any new tech cut-off once there are 74 cameos in the sidebar?

This is the result of a work-around developed to prevent the whiteboy-bug (named after the modder that discovered it), which crashes the game if there are more than 74 cameos available.

The work-around prevents these crashes, however it does so by capping the amount of cameos you can see in the sidebar. This is one of the reasons why tech content is not available in certain game modes.

Placeholder text.

16. Will individual missions be selectable again in future releases?

This feature is already available, simply go into your client settings and enable the Individual Missions option and enjoy. Note there will be some post score screen oddities when using this option.

Placeholder text.

17. My map editor crahses on start up, how can I fix it?

You can typically fix the issue by going into your Map Editor directory and deleting the FinalTI.ini file. Then open FinalTI, you'll be met with a window asking you to find the path to your Game.exe. Find your primary TI directory and select the aforementioned exe. Once that is done your map editor should open as normal. If you continue to have issues please report the problem.


That's all for now. Hopefully these resolved any questions you might've had. If not, then feel free to reach us.

I think it would be better to re-introduce the purple Tiberium (Tiberium Aboreus) to new version. Removing it and its related objects is not a good idea.

Brothers i enjoy your mod for years and i can say this mod is the best one on moddb, i just want to mention one thing i really like to use mammoth tanks and back then i was plying timeless insurrection , having mammoths in my armies now i can only have them when i ply dawn do you have any plans for a updated mammoth or will we have a timeless insurrection switch again or none of these.
Secondly falcon subfaction should have repair tank in my opinion because as i understand its the heavy tanks variation if im not wrong ofcourse you can ply unholy but even with the subfaction doctrine falcon should have a double armored double repaire speed repair tank.
Nod can use some more rocket power gr8 factions but some tib cored ssm or smth like a scud i dont know just needs some kind of more ' dirthy fight' vibes...
Lastly my cam missies not landing where i launched, its disappearing is it a bug?
Best mod brothers, best mod.

So is your editor crashing on start up? If so try going into your map editor folder and deleting a file called FinalTI.ini. When you boot the editor again it'll need you to find the pathway to the game.exe in your main directory. Once set up that should hopefully that'll fix your issue.

Is there any chance the Nod will get back Tiberium vines harvesting? The Tiberium Waste? and for chemical missiles? It was such a cool concept.

Or just give it as requirement for Apocalypse missile. It would also differentiate more factions, if Nod has to harvest for their superweapon.

Unfortunately there's a hard limit on how many super weapons you can have in the TS engine and TI's currently using them all right now.
It's possible to clone the EMP Cannon as was done with the Quake Generator but that has its own limitations.

As for using the weed system to charge the Apoc missile, since it's their sole super weapon that'd put Nod at a substantial disadvantage on any map without veinholes.

Not all maps have veins and those that do don't have equal access to it, so it would make some maps biased in favor of Nod and other ones in favor of GDI and GT, and some starting locations much more favorable than others whenever Nod is involved.

I like the mod! I like the graphic style and the many new units and buildings.
BUT the mod is way too hard. Even on easy many missions are hardly to not at all to accomplish. There must be urgently improved! Because in its current form, the mod makes much less fun than it could!
