I'm kinda finished on my new TSTW map, called "Cracks in the Sand".

I'm aiming for the highest detailing ever done in a TS map, and my goal is to prove that TS can be a very nice looking game with great atmosphere.

I've also finished my large lightposts, finally remembered they weren't done yet Wink

BTW the general idea of the map is that it's a large, dried (like a desert) crater in an otherwise futile land; parts of the map are HEAVILY infested with tiberium (again, highest possible detailing and lighting effects) and alse feature new Tiberium plants (like the ones i've shown before)

If he dislikes it so much why dont he remake it? It would be easy for some one as good as him. Even a small improvement would be nice.

Lol yes i admitted that... I do have plans to remake it but not for TSTW as it would delay TSTW release even further.

BTW Tiberiumsun.com is having problems....

TSR has a fixed version of grand cayon which gives the civilians offmap powerplants so that the SAM sites top right actuallywork (something that always annoyed me)

btw thedvd could we have a minimap prevew of cracks in the sand

i dont like grand cayon too much either for 2 reasons

1. Its very undetailed
2. Im bored to hell with it as its the map ive done 90% of testing for TSR on (as its convienent)

Exactly the same as in RA2
It can be edited
It would be extremely time consuming and difficult

No power plants in that map... The invisible green light posts generate power.

since TSR is also working on this site why not ask them for a copy of thier light post(its almost the same expect it a bit more detailed) and all you will have to do is ask them(which fits your lazyness quite well Laughing Laughing )

ok he meant you, Smiffgig, Mr. one man Tiberian Sun Retro team. The thing is you're not, FS at least is part of your team.

Smiffgig, will you please drop this whole attitude, it is really getting annoying. You did do most of the work, but several other people have contributed as well.

funnily enough it aint that great, after spending months and months of work on a mod which has dedicated my life for the last couple of months (sad but its true) and then to have a whole C&C community not credit you for it, but credit some mysterious make believe team called the "TSR Team" in which only me and FS exsist(in reality). There have been many great contrubutions to TSR from members of the community which I am of course grateful for but this doesnt make up a fully organized and working team (or anything near) just contrubutions.
When TSR was on PC Gamer I didnt even get credit, for my own mod!

But hey, i leave it at an end, a cliff hanger (so to speak)
My ranting and raving and feeling sorry for myself (as some would like to percieve it) will stop here... as well as other things Smile

Well you are the leader of the "TSR Mod Team". I'm not too surprised PC Gamer didn't include names.

smiff, its much easier to say 'the TSR team' then saying smiffgig, not all people know mods by their creator and to save confusion its just easier to say it. And YOU are the team so why does it matter if we say team or not? just because everytime someone says TSR your name isnt in brackets mext to it doesnt mean you arent rceiving credit

AlteredFreak, i know the TSR light posts, in both snow and temperate it's white.. somehow i don't like that, so i made a brownish light post for temperate maps. (like they were in the TS beta screenshots)

btw....Smile
