Thank you all for participating in Mod of the Year Awards. Considering amount of work that has been done and what is left to do you can expect release in second quarter of 2016. It seems that the idea that floater will be the only forgotten aircraft has not been met with wide approval so I changed my mind (again) and return to my original plan including more aircrafts for the forgotten.

Hallo my friends and fans!

Moddb awards
First thing first. Thank you all for participating in Mod of the Year Awards, once again Tiberium Essence made into first 100 which is great success as always.

And now to Forgotten
As you can see work on the mod is still in progress, but I'm getting closer to something playable. Considering amount of work that has been done and what is left to do you can expect release in second quarter of 2016. Maybe even sooner. At least that is the plan.

I know that this is probably not what you have expected but developing new faction is truly more trickier than I have expected. I need more time to get things right.

It seems that the idea that floater will be the only forgotten aircraft has not been met with wide approval
so I changed my mind (again) and return to my original plan including more aircrafts for the forgotten, but lets keep it still in small numbers I say no more than 3 types.

Tiberium Essence 2.0


So here is Hind gunship, I think its quite fitting to forgotten faction, resilient and versatile aerial transport.
And floater will be something like kirov airship, dropping big bombs, that might be actually more fun and more reasonable afterall.

Tiberium Essence 2.0


So that is all for now folks.

Happy hollydays to you all and happy new year.

Oh so floater stay for forgotten... hmm well it wont hurt but the Hind was a great addition for the forgotten in every aspect! theme, role and design! nice job.
btw i hope we do see animated floaters as tiberium mutated hostile lifeforms too, the correct one we have in map editor lack tentacle animations sadly

Merry Christmas and happy new year to you and to all the community.

3 air units is a fine number. A fighter (AA/AP, the Harpy?), a AT/Assault (the Hind) and a Bomber (the Vindicator?) are a good solution.

Floater was quite odd and overpowered so we are glad that you changed your mind (I hope it will return as a wild life form).
The only thing I suggest to add is a carryall (V 44 Pegasus) like this: Qph.is.quoracdn.net

so the Forgotten can be perfectly balanced.

Have nice holidays!

Yes, I've understood that. Still I think he should change his mind because "that floater" doesn't fit as a regular unit at all. That attachment is ugly and it seems inappropriate at all (it's a brainless jellyfish, jellyfish is made by 99% of water, how can be even controlled?)

More like Floater will end up being non-garrisonable bomber, dropping his poop on us; perfect Hind is perfect Hind Xd and Vindicator I eagerly look forward to, the dedicated ASF.
Its really interesting that Reclaimer, Mastodon, Hind and Floater
are all garrisonable, atleast for now.
Dedicated Forgotten Carryall chinook, osprey or whatever; is something what I would expect to come into account.

Have a nice big iradiated vinifera changing into visceroid in your socks! :-)

So now we are just missing a fast plane that would be able to attack air and ground and preferably with vertical lift-off? Something like Harrier?

Šťastné a veselé Vánoce!

A-10 is nice idea. But it could be a problem with non-vtol aircraft. It is possible to make Generals style airfields, but it could be bugged.

Something like this as Forgotten Bomber?

I63.tinypic.com

IMHO, it's a perfect example of the Vindicator. Fast VTOL looking like a WWII "wing plane". Can't ask anything better.

Happy Holiday to you too...

well we got "kirov floater" and the hind and if we look at RA3 aircraft set :p the third one is specialized AA
I think something like raptor or eurofighter or something with vtol like harier or f35 with tiberium fuel
Next posibilities is carryal kind. Which is in this case we might see something like osprey, chinnok or something like carryall hind (i dont know much about chopper other than american sadly) or something with vtol.

Either which one of your choice, i will support you if it good choice for the mod :p and thanks for the great mod

so will the floater still get its lightning weapon and now can drop bombs instead of carrying infantry? or will it only drop bombs?
may i sugest having the floater carry one heavy vehicle, allowing it to be transported arround the map quikly, and then it can only load bombs while it isnt carrying a vehicle.

Is there still stuff happening?
We got a whole year without hearing anything, Carnius.

Whatever the answer is, thank you and everyone behind this mod. I hope there will be something in 2016, but you already did a hell of a job.
