___________________________________

As much as I enjoy being creative, spending too much time in maps have to come to an end for me. I'm spending the same time now, on making tutorials on what i've learned along the way. I made a bunch of tutorial video's already and two of them already uploaded on youtube. I just really want people to know how great Tiberian Sun is! The way they made C&C is incredible: So much is edit-able, mod-able, so many idea's are born cuz of how well they structured all of it. Even tho its pretty old by now, I'm still impressed! I don't see this type of editing possible any where else! And I enjoyed making maps so much, it always gave me such joy because every idea always works and for people to play it online makes me so happy! There is so much too it! Also, the tutorials on ppmsite are often for advanced map makers, so I want to simplify everything and really get into the basics.

I really hope more people would make maps and are not afraid to explore whats beyond terrain editing. Just ask for help!

 

So far I made an Intro video and only a "how to properly make cliffs" video. I really suggest to find the proper way of editing! Cuz you can lose a lot of time by not knowing the short cuts. And thats the second reason i'm making tutorials: Know what works and more importantly what Doesn't!

Can you make a tutorial on how to add colors other than red to units?

For example, cabal was blue in the campaign, or the civilian vehicles around maps would often have colors like yellow schoolbuses or red pickups.

      Hello,
       
      Would you consider adding a link to Mole40k's Tiberian Sun Guide to the tips shown in each game room??
      When new players start, it would be really helpful to them.   >>  Lots of information vs. one tip.
      Mole40k getting me the link...
      Thank you!

      Hello,
      I'd like to report a bug that maybe others know about.
      Me and several others are noticing an issues where: after setting up two opposing Teams (e.g., A vs B) in the game setup screen, as soon as the game begins, some subset of players will instantly hear "alliance formed" and discover that they can see opponents map discovery, as though they are on a team. (When working properly, we will not hear "alliance formed", and the Teams will work as expected.)
      We then cannot declare war on the player. We must abort the game and try again.
       
      What I've found so far:
      Inconsistent. Sometimes this will happen, other times we will not.
      The problem doesn't consistently happen to any player. Sometimes just me, other times just my friend, other times both, and other times neither.
      After experiencing the issue, having a different person setup the exact same game may avoid the issue.
      We don't know if this happens when battling other human players (we only play against AI).
      It may be that it only occurs on [Val.Bal.2.49] maps, but not always, and we are not certain of this.
       
      If anyone knows how to avoid this issue, I'd be grateful to hear of a solution.
      Thanks,

      Does anyone have any tips on how to get Tiberian Sun to scroll smoothly when setting scroll to keyboard keys? I set scroll to wasd and the arrow keys and both times it will only scroll the screen a small amount and then stop.

      Hi All,
      I recently purchases CC Tiberian Sun on disk having played it as a kid some 15 years ago (ehhh). I Have tried the disk on 2 laptops. On my mums older laptop the game downloads but just doesnt work when I load it up. It asks for me to update however nothing happens.
      When i try on my newer laptop i get a OLEAUT32.DLL error which after a quick google i download an updated .d.ll  however this hasnt helped. Does anyone know how to get round the error? Do i need to configure anything on my laptop?
      I have downloaded the game from this website however it only partially fills the screen i would prefer to play through the disk.
      Thanks
