Please remember this mod is not complete, and I still have a lot of things to add/modify

This is a mod that explores what the two factions would have been like during the time in between Tib War 1 and Tib War 2.
It introduces the forgotten as a playable faction, and is nearing the completion of the forgotten faction, soon we will be moving on to balance fixes, and the campaign about the war for survival that the forgotten must wage on their oppressors.

After trying for a half hour to embed the video, apparently that's impossible on this forum, so...

if you have a game crash, or have issues with the balancing (which I know there are lots of), or just something doesn't work quite right, put it in here, and remember if you have an exception log: http://pastebin.com/ is your friend Razz

tesla coil, laser turret, and vulcan cannon all require power to operate now
Airstrikes removed from forgotten
Tiberium Fissure ability added to forgotten
Airstrike changed to paradrop for nod
Scout now auto-targets properly

Modified units:
GDI:
-Mammoth Tank: The weapons have been upgraded as far as physically possible for a tank unit, hence the creation of the Mammoth Mk II in Tiberian Sun, moves slower, costs $3000
-Medium Tank: Added Coaxial mg for anti infantry

NOD:
-Light Tank: Added Coaxial mg for anti infantry


I find it important to repeat here, this mod is a Work in Progress, and I still have not added/modified everything that I will get done eventually


Structure List coming in the next update!

Also, just a quick note, my internal version has been updated to 1215, (the latest release) and after that I'll work on getting everything to work with the overriding system

If you have any suggestions for the mod, please leave a comment and I'll see what I can do!

Looks great so far, been enjoying my play-throughs.
Some basic tips for anyone playing this regarding forgotten strategy:

-Technicals are great for using in small packs to take out artillery/MLRS

-Militia are very powerful for their cost in anti-infantry capabilities, but unlike mini-gunners
have moderate issues with light armor and can't touch tanks, so building Forgotten AT's from the get-go is paramount to survival.

-scouts require a lot of micro to be useful and are good for early harassment of enemy infantry.

-make sure to fight near tiberium as often as possible. Sneaking a few soldiers into the opponent's tiberium field's actually one of the best ways to create early pressure as the forgotten.

@salvakiya

I have released a new version for the 1215 playtest, please make sure you have the Tiberian Dawn mod downloaded as well, as The Forgotten Chapter draws from it's mix files.

if you still get crashes, could you send me a pastebin of your exception log?

@salvakiya, that honestly should not be a problem, but it is something that was noted and they'll be releasing a new version later tonight. The problem is that the maps began to require specific mods, and I fixed that, but apparently not well enough. Unfortunately the only thing to do now is wait for the official update, sorry.

@salvakiya, thanks so much, it's rare that someone actually tries to help on forums instead of just getting annoyed at the modder Smile

As a indie dev I know the importance of feedback and bug reporting. As an OpenRa fan I am glad there is a new CnC mod.

@salvakiya, if you want to play an old obsolete version that's kind of got the gyst of the mod, I've got a full pre-modded portable installation that you can try

Version 0.22 changes, in addition to many minor balance changes

+Added Wolverine Prototype to GDI
+All maps back
+Optimized for OpenRA 1220
+Testmap of first mission included (not complete, just a concept) XXX It says this in the changelog but I forgot to put it into the maps folder, it is however in the process of being made, and should be added within a couple of updates, sorry about that

Could you put a bug list in? I'd like some place where I can post errors and the like I get.

Just uploaded version 0.25, technically not too many changes, but the things I did change were pretty important. I'm going to get started fixing balance issues soon, so if anyone wants to post replies about things they want changed regarding that, it would be great Smile
