Removed download.. This post is now obsolete! godofgamers came back out of the woodwork, and we've got something better in store for you guys! Wink
-TB


It's with bittersweet feeling I announce that as of this post, XTX will take a completely new direction.

In short, XTX as we know it will cease. Over the years, many of us on staff have spent long hours on the graphics, coding, and organization of XTX, but we have to face the bitter fact that it's not ever going to be released as originally intended, even in the best of circumstances.

-Mainly, we simply lost support. Both within staff, and in the community. As leader for the past 4 years, I'll take full responsibility for that fact. In Fall 2010 I got back into college (and Air Force training), and had to step aside from modding from then until May 2013 when I graduated. My lack of free time not only cost XTX, but lost my standing in Twisted Insurrection as well.. although given the benefits of a college degree and future as a USAF pilot, it's a small price to pay. But let this be my apology, not because it's justified but because I owe it. Not only to the XTX team (wherever you may be) but to ALL the folks who have relied on my lax support; Tiberian Odyssey team, Twisted Insurrection team, and yes, even the freakin' Rise of Omnious team #Tongue I hope y'all can understand.

But, this isn't the bitter end! See, everyone who's ever worked on staff knows that we owe it to the community to give you XTX, in some form. The ultimate goal ever since TX, was to give an enhanced version of TS terrain as a springboard for Tiberian Sun modders as they work on projects of their own. Well, there happens to be a mod with that same goal already in the works, and doing it a hell of a lot better than we ever could: TS: Asset Expansion.

So here's the plan:
All of the efforts that were once going toward XTX will now be going toward recreating XTX based on the TS:AE remastered terrain. Regulus has a free-submit policy for his assets, so little by little we'll hope to get support porting over all useable XTX terrain over to TS:AE, essentially with a better product than either XTX or TS:AE could have made independently of each other. Synergy, folks!

-However, I DID promise that XTX would be released. Attached is Build 1.2M "Messy". It contains ALL of the XTX assets that I've ever had my hands on. It is not organized, and even internal build 1.1 has IE problems, but all the files are there for whoever can find use with them. Remember, the ultimate goal is to recreate it all for TS:AE so you'll see this terrain again, and in a better fashion than before!

Over the years, XTX has consumed a great deal of time and effort from the following people:

-Gangster, original TX leader
-DaTS, XTX first leader
-Team Black, leader since 2009
-Lin Kuei Ominae, shp master
-Godofgamers, terrain junkie
-!DarkRose, terrain junkie

Many terrain pieces in XTX 1.2M have been donated by the following projects, with permission:
-Tiberian Sun Callisto (RIP)
-Tiberian Odyssey
-Twisted Insurrection

As well, no TS modder, but I have to say it - if it's as cool as pics say it is, it might be useful for some. #Tongue

Yea, might look useful for people... I'm not yet there to care about civilians and such in my mod yet, but when I will, I'll go back here too.

Even if no TS modder, more civilian assets never hurt.

After a very long hiatus, I've resumed work on XTX. The temperate theatre is done, and is bug-free. I don't want to be overly optimistic, but if all goes well, XTX will have a completely functional release within a month.

Awww yeah!
I removed the download to 1.2M. There's no reason to have that crap up, in light of the new build that's in the works.

It would be a sad error in judgement, to mistake this mod for a corpse!

Honestly, TB. First of all, do not underestimate what has been done so far. The old download was not a crap, although I know that what you have in hands now is much better.

The second thing is that, while the new release is not online, it's better to keep the old release up. Doing that will not lower the reputation of this project. If something happens with Godofgamers forcing him to change his plans, at least you guys will have the old release available.

We're working together on this one, I'm very confident we're going to pull a solid release together within a week, two tops.

Build 1.2M was embarrassing. I felt like it was a disgrace to the team, and all we'd done over all these years. However, I resolved it was the best I could do given my time, resources, and motivation.
The assets themselves are out-of-the-park awesome, but in 1.2M they're so disheveled and disorganized that I would hate for someone to waste their own time to try and organize them, when we've already got it in the works.
I'm currently testing out gog's build, and it looks very promising Smile

If anyone has 1.2M, they're free to distribute it. I just feel there's a higher standard we as the XTX team can achieve here for the community, than a half-assed Messy Build

Whatever, but be aware that this mod is at the Released section, so we expect at least something to download.

TX is still released & available to the public, which is technically the 0.9 version of XTX
