Hello everyone! Holland, has announced his new mod called Public Factions. His idea is to make a mod for Tiberian Sun that unites different factions from different public mods such as Reign of Steel, Tiberian Sun Reform, Crystalized Doom, and Tiberian Sun Dusk (Mortecha''s version). With the authorization of their authors, it also plans to let other modders use these assets in their mods. Here is a snippet of his words about it:


I've recently started this project from the desire to play with another faction in the playerbase community. The idea of this project is to have custom ts factions available for public use, everyone can work on, use in their own mod, rip assets out of, and to have something ready for project vinifera.

Since Nod and GDI's balance is so sensitive, we are gonna leave Nod and GDI completely alone, with the idea to keep the vet-patch optional. But because Vet-patch basically also makes sure that units that are considerd useless, are no longer useless, i think its best to balance the new factions with vet-patch enabled, so we don't need to make a vet patch for the new factions, and vet patch enabled will be the preferred norm.

This project is based on multiplayer gameplay and not the tiberian sun story, this way i believe we have more opportunity to come across good custom playable factions. Their ai.ini entries are easily written, and custom campaigns are always possible, we can even revive campaigns from dead mods too, in the future if we want.

Since there already are pretty cool custom factions out there, and because I have no design-skills whatsoever, i decided to look around for public assets and existing custom TS factions. I've asked around if we can use them for public use and so far these guys have responded with approval:

Superjoe - Tiberian Sun Reform
Astor - Old Crystalized Doom (ts engine) + 2 buildings from his current CD version on openra , and some sidebars
Holy_Master - reign of steel (all faction assets. Ra2 mod)
Mortecha's- Dusk (awesome naval sub-factions)

I wanted to wait with announcing this project untill the screenshots would look good enough for each faction, but since i just discovered that the YR factions take a little bit more time to transfer to TS (the sound voice entries), im just gonna do it now. I'm halfway with the last faction so i don't have a screenshot for it yet.  

Consortium from Reign of Steel:

This is imo the ROS faction with best TS style. just the ref, and towers needs resizing, many units need to be fixed too.. its a big work in progress lol, but i did all of this relatively quickly, but if you want this faction in your mod, i could use some help.

Steel Talons from Reign of Steel:

Orginally this is GDI from ROS. But i guess i can be part of a cool TS mod.
Also still lots of work to do,resizing, recoloring, fixing animations, etc,

Marked of Kane:

Orginally this is Nod from ROS, i just added those grey squares on my phone real quick to see if those public assets would fit the faction lol. Still need to convert all the resized frames to shp files and add the faction in the client

Superjoe's Forgotten (TS Reform)

with sidebar:

Cabal from public assets: LKO,McPwny,DaFool, 2 from Astor, some assets from Cabal's legacy, which are just a placeholder for now because i have no response from mod owner yet:

Still need to resize and recolor some buildings, but im glad i finally found a group of matching buidings, it took me forever to find good stuff.

Naval from TS Dusk:
