Post news RSS Xenoforce 9E Released!

Are you ready for another layer of Command and Conquer? This release brings 5 factions to bear against each other, with fully working and custom AI scripts, new units, new weapon systems, and the return of the After War army to Xenoforce Reborn!

Posted by on

There are many new things to talk about with this release. GDI, NOD, and Scrin have had some additional tweaks done to them making them even more effective on the battlefield. The Earth Federation : UC is fully operational and making hard pushes against anyone they come up against. And finally, the second set of the Earth Federation, Earth Federation : AW is here!

GDI has a new addition to it's reinforcement powers. Now whenever you summon in reinforcements the Ox's will be accompanied by special Orcas to help lay down cover fire, giving the Ox's a better chance to actually deliver their payloads.

NOD's Avatar and Purifier Warmechs have had a bit of an overhaul making them bigger threats on the battlefield and bringing them up to the same standards as the other factions top tier units.

The Scrin have had their design slightly revamped. Their buildings no longer drop defenses as this was causing problems. Now the Scrin Nerve Center builds their defenses.

The UC forces have had quite a few changes. Many units now have the chance to miss based on the type of weapon they use. Other units have had their cost and strength adjusted to help them fill their roll better. Finally the UC has had Gundam Powers added in since last time, allowing the UC to not only deploy Gundams as a support but also help support their army with these powers like "Field Repairs" or "Exam System".

But we're not done yet. This release showcases the all new Earth Federation : AW force!
AW works unlike any other force in the game. There are 5 key points that the AW force centers around, if you understand each point and are able to use it properly then AW becomes almost unstoppable!

First key point is that AW does not use defenses at all. Their forces and based around speed and strength.

Second point is the Tenzans. The AW forces do not build their lowest class of unit, the Daughtress's, by themselves. Instead they build these massive land ships that transport the Daughtress's and command them in battle. There are 5 different class's of Daughtress's that AW can use in battle.

The Third key point are the Gundams. AW is the only Earth Federation force that focus's on the mass production of Gundams. This is done in 2 different ways, the Normal Pilots and the Newtype Pilots. Normal Pilots typically equip their gundams with additional weapons to help offset their lack of newtype ability. Newtype Pilots however focus their skills on only one or two weapons. They also take longer to train. So why would you want to build Newtypes? Well, for starters, Newtypes can access the Bit System allowing you to summon in 2 Bits of each type of Newtype Gundam on the field directly at the Gundams location for support. These bits have the same weapons as their gundams have, making them very useful.

Also when it comes to Gundam X you gain one additional benefit from being a Newtype. You can fire the Sat Cannon when the moon is in its proper position ablove the battlefield! Once every 5 or 6 minutes all of the units and structures on the battlefield will turn red. When things are turning red any Newtype Gundam X or Gundam Double X unit will fire their sat cannons at enemy units doing massive damage!

The forth thing about AW is DOME. DOME is a very powerful ability allowing you to drop these drop pods filled with DOME Bits anywhere you can see on the battlefield. And with the different Newtype Powers available to you this is easy to do.

Finally we have the most important key point, the Colony Drop. Unlike other factions, AW has no control over it's ultimate power. Thats because it's not their power, it's Zeons! After a random amount of time once DOME has been detected on the battlefield Zeon will drop a random number of these devistating weapons onto the battlefield. In the aftermath it becomes a race to get your engineer into it before your enemy can. If you do you will find an experimental piece of colony technology that the Neutral Colonies were going to try to use to protect them from the spreading war but were not able to complete in time. Maybe you can make more use of this than they did?

If you go to our MOD DB page you can download the mod directly there. Inside the rar file (you will need a program like WinRar to open it up, winrar is avalible online and is free) is a readme.txt file with instructions on how to normally install the mod. It's not that hard, you really just put the files into a spicific mods directory that CNC3 makes. Then you can go to the command console and launch the mod from there.

If the steam version has the mods directory but does not give you access to the command console (I don't know why it wouldn't but then again it IS steam) then I can help you write a shortcut that will automatically launch the mod. Thats how I do it, I just have a xenoforce reborn link on my desktop that I click on and it loads CNC3 with the mod automatically.

Otherwise I'm not sure how to go about loading a mod onto Desura. MOD DB did that for us with the xenoforce O3 mod when they loaded the other CNC mods onto it. I looked on the page myself but did not see an option for me to manually upload a mod to Desura.

I liked this mod for Generals, but mainly because it had Wing Zero and Deathscythe. I was looking for a unit list somewhere but found one. What units (if any) from Gundam Wing are in this mod?

Wing zero is there if you capture a fallen colony on the aw side. Unfortunately we do not have enough models for there to be a full gundam wing side. (always been a talgeese fan myself)

Tallgeese 1, the entire idea of this machine that was designed years ago and built but then mothballed and forgotten because there wasn't anyone alive able to use it that is later rediscovered and used to defeat an enemy that up until that point seemed unstoppable, to me this entire idea was Gundam when I first watched it.

Well its still updated, what did you downloaded from:
Is it from Desura: Azuza001 needs to figure it out for this.
Is it from Moddb: Get it from "Download", then click on XR 9E
Or is it from Mediafire: Mediafire.com

Desura is not updated to the latest version, it will be fixed sometime this week (should get net tomorrow). Desura has the mod Xenoforce:The Original 3 not Xenoforce : Reborn

I figure it out about the XR download for Desura, this must upload by only the Developers mods. This means that only the XR developer "Dougbendo" only can upload the Xenoforce: Reborn. We might need to tell Dougbendo to upload it for the Desura.

I was wondering what the hell my baes were getting so wiped out by!? I mean everytime i'd build a large defense against the UFC! Couple of the older versions with the mammoth tanks, APCS, pitballs, and etc. That large Colony would come out of nowwhere and bam! JUST wipe me clean off the map accept leaving a bunker infantry and one war factory Sheesh! Now that explains it.
