I was scoping TS Central
, as I do pretty much every day, and I noticed a link to a new TT site
which they host. While it really doesn't have much content, it's worth checking out if you're sitting around at 1:20am and have nothing else to do, plus as it's part of TS Central it gets my official endorsement, not that it counts for much :)
In other community news from those sadistic, sly and downright evil minions over at TT-U they'll be getting a new layout and domain. Of course, their site isn’t updated as much as ours so I guess that there's really no point in clicking on this at link, now is there?
Seems as though a reversal of sorts has taken place on our forum
...seems to have my name writtin all over it too =P
I sure do hope sonicstorm enjoys it :)Jaguar
But I don't care, an hour to kill before Letterman.... night-time TV owns me :)

Sharing the Love,
those backward smileys really hurt my brains. it feels like the left portion om my brain is cut off and re-attached on the right. or something like that. ouch.
i love iris. just wanted to mention that. :)
now guys, if you check out planetrainbowsix, gamespyder, planetbattlezone and fileplanet, don't you think gsn is taking their similar-design-policy a little too far?
and today's tt news: it is rumoured tiberium will play a role in the game's story. wow!Tim
I'm sitting here, just trying to fill in some time, sending happy thoughts to my antique and increasingly slow 33.6k modem downloading the latest beta patch. I can't do anything else online because if I can download the patch quickly, me and Kane41 should be able to hook up a game with Ted and Rade, fingers crossed :) Sad thing is, even if I get to the game, everyone will have a much better ping than me, it'll be embarrising because even Kane41 who has to resort to using his AOL account will have a better ping than me. Gay Pacific Ocean :( Anyway, back to my point, as I've gotta fill in some time I figured I would post here.
Kane41, man you shouldn't have posted hamperdance :( I was going to use one of those guys as the lp mascot, so now my secrets out. Tim, hurry up and html the lp layout please, the I can post crap there too, 'cept not feel like i'm wasting anyone's time :)
If we moved to GX we could hook up with my g0d, Thresh and he could drive us all around in his Ferrari (actually, I don't think he drives that much?) and play a few games... my life long dream may still come true (it's sad I know)
Talking about chicks, how's that one that you met at the beach? :)
Just thought I'd get back into that staff message board feel =) heh...[-lp-]Oliver
You like your speed huh Alkaline? I live with it 24/7 via my l337 cable modem =)
Now that Alkaline has mastered the "hi's" and "stop staring at me's" with da h0t chix0rs I guess we won't be seeing very much of him around anymore =)
Well enough about me being better then you all, and on to some less important stuff. The following might sound a bit like a soap opera but try to follow. Our hosts, EAC, will be changing hosts over to the increasingly l337 GX Network. Yes boys and girls that means that there is a slight chance that we will be down for little bit. If you come here (www.t-twilight.com) and it's not working we suggest you do one or more of the following things:
- Go to http://twilight.ea-central.net
- Go to www.eb.com and memorize the encyclopedia
- Go to www.drudgereport.com and read about my favorite president, Billy "I like to get it sucked by interns" Clinton
If all else fails and you feel totally deprived and hurt you can go http://www.hamsterdance.com/
and get high while watching animated hamsters dance and laugh your ass off. By the time the cops find you and bring you into the mental home we'll probably be back up and running =)
[Note: Tiberian Twilight Revolution nor its sick p1mpst@ Kane41 supports getting high while watching animated hamsters sing]
Yeah, i'm bagging them up over here. Several of them even know my name. And even better, a couple have actually stopped at my open door and said "hi" to me! I think I will actually be able to hold a 10 minute conversation with one of them soon! I feel pretty special. Beat that, Presto! (I dunno if Presto would appreciate me saying this, but he's kind of been less than successful recently in "bagging up" girls...)Alkaline
I like them that way :P
On another note does anyone have any voting scripts that I could put on the downloads page?Chris
I'm now hooked up to the network at my college and this thing is friggin fast! I downloaded 2 megabytes in 14 seconds last night. Crazy. Pages load in about 3 seconds. I am in heaven. No more laggy games for me! (unless some dumbass with a 28.8 connection tries to join).
Oh, and Chris, why are your smileys backwards?Alkaline
I've just been working on the downloads page. As u could probably tell there won't be any screenshots or anything like that for quite a while so the part that will be open will be more oriented on stuff sent in like wallpapers or games etc, also I'll be making a few VB games aswell.
The page should be up in a few days if Eric ever checks his emails (:
I'll post the link when it's finished (:
Oh, and welcome to Alkaline and Tim (:
Hhmmm putting smilies at the end of sentences is fun (:Chris
Someone FLAME ROYALTY
too. Tell him his spelling sucks. According to him, he is a board. ;)[-lp-]Oliver
U know I was sitting here board and I thought why not say hello to everyone at good ol TTR =) Hello guys =) I just decided to add myself because I was board and I wanted to say hello. Seems you guys dont seem to like TTM. Sniff Sniff =) You hurt my feelings. Now say sorry Tim =) heheheh j/k u guys are the greatest good luck to you all! And btw, I asked Kane41's permission to do this and he said sure. So I do ask now =) But im gonna add kane to TT-U's updating list when it opens so he can do the same kind of stuff to me at TT-U =) Ok well hrmm I guess thats all I have to say. Im out for now! Hrmm thats alot of smileys for one update. Ill have to stop that. =)Royalty
Hey everyone! Click here
right now, then click on general and then sonicstorms post so you can read sonicstorm's grammatical brilliance and let it enlighten you!
When you're done reading, either
A) Flame Sonicstorm
B) Flame me
for being such an ass and joining this site because "it's too early to start a TT site"
As we've started doing some news (at last) I'll add something. I've noticed something the same with some
of Westwoodsideas and Stargate SG1. There's actually Bule Tiberium in an episode Stargate SG1, when I turned on the TV one night to watch SG1 I looked and said "Thats Blue Tiberium!". It was only when I turned on the next week when I found something else! There was an episodewhich was called "Nox" and it was all about these people called the Nox (duh). Can you belive it, there's a Westwood title called "Nox"! Who knows whats to come next. :) [-lp-]BritishTS
Not the most appropriate title I know. I see you didn't notice my post below yours about the major concidences in C&C and the X-Files? I believe that one had a point. We brits are known to be mad anyway, so don't blame us! :)TheShadow
It seems that half the posts I read today here on TTR have a point at the beginning, but then the author starts rambling and it ends with no point. I will not name the guilty characters *cough* british and shadow *cough*. Come on, do people really want to read crap like "oh i like to laugh"? Cut your posts to the point, and don't drone on about things that have been stated about 4 times already (the fact that uptight people suck). Well, that's my rip-list for today.Alkaline
This post is going up on tumsun. No link here btw. Now if you follow the X-files and C&C ( moi ), you may notice something a little the same.X-Files.
- Bee's used to spread Virus.
- The virus is called Purity, is lethal to humans and is the Aliens life-source.
- They couldn't invade straight away, they need help. Namely from Cancer Man and the FEAM.
- Plan had been in action for thirty-something years.
Ok now for where C&C comes in:
- Meteor shower around Tiber River to spread Tiberium.
- The mineral is lethal to humans, and is the Scrins life source.
- They couldn't invade without some one to terra-form the planet to Tiberium, enter Kane.
- The invasion plans had been drawn since 1995, so that's 35 years to Tiberium Sun.
Is this a conincidence? Like the Lincon/Kennedy connection? Either way it's offering a very
rich story as all you X-Philes will know :). I'll leave you to decide what's going on.TheShadow
And the "RIP" list grows ever longer =)
Well I got me an idea...FLAME WESTWOOD! ;) After all they're the ones that cut all those kick-ass features =( Maybe they'll show up in TT...hmmmm...wait nevermind this is Westwood we're talking about...hmmmmm...
You want my ICQ UIN? Guess =)Jaguar
WTF is he talking about? Well he talking about BritishTS. Hello. It raining there? It's sunny here ( isn't that kinda a contradiction in terms? ) The clock isn't GMT I'm afraid it's EST or EDT or what ever isn't it?.This 'rip-list' thing is quite fun. Actually e-mail me
a TS/TT site/worker to rip and a reason and I'll put it up :) No doubt I'll expand it ( or get shut down ). Something to do while wasting time on the net though. TheShadow
My ICQ doesn't like your number so here's mine: 27968935. You also need my permission to get on and it's large enough, only tumsun and TTR staff. Thanx Okay, as I said before I was starting a 'rip-list'. Well next guy up is Lord-D from TSNNZ. BTW no-one gets linked on the rip-list. He used the same quote as I did. Lazy bugger, probably didn't even read the whole Q&A. It wasn't a press-release because it had other peoples names on the questions. Damn, if your going to post an article at least read it. Surely you know that? It was my phrase that Brett Sperry was the Big Cheese, no-one elses.I think we should patent our posts so no-one can put anything that seems a bit like it. Or maybe not, that wouldn't be cool on big sites.TheShadow
What is it with this page! I come back here to read every day (sad i know),BUT the funny thing is the fight which seems to have broken outta nowhere!
After about 60 mins of reading, I thought I might just come and add to my long list of updates on TTR (if you don't belive me just read back back back..(no don't bother))
What I want to know is where the up-tight people came from? Who is it? I want to go sort them out :) I say up with what ever someone said about starting out again. And if ya don't like it leave, kindda stuff. Relax, smash open a bottle and take in the rain (damn English weather).
Also I'd like to welcome you to the guy who will take the piss outta anything he possibly can (but most of the time doesn't cause it's too sick). Yeah it's ME (aka the Joker (aka BritishTS)). I can laugh about anything, in fact I'm laughing right now. I don't even know what I'm laughing at!
Some people say I'm mad others say I'm crazy, but most just gaup and say "damn he's a good skiier" (wounder if i'm better them Warmaker?:-) :).
Now I've run out of things to babble on about I'm going to write a closing bit. Ermm, dunno what I'm going to say now. So I'll shut up.
BritishTS - OUT! OFF! Mad! :)
PS. What's with the Clock ^^ up there? that's not GMT, I'm living on the line I should know.
it's authoritah-enabled, so people other than ttr-staff shouldn't even bother ... >=)Tim
Jag when I said that, I meant I was tired and wanted to go to bed! M!ke and Kane, there's no need to half-apolgise for putting up stuff the way we want it run. If we want to bash other sites we can, anyway how many times do we really mean it? The Ts community needs to un-clench a bit.Pitty about Bablylon 5, they have cancelled like two other games, put 2 on hold and let off about 100 peeps :( Tim could you e-mail your ICQ number, thanx :) This is going up on tumsun too, I just wanted to see what you guys think about it. Here goes:
let me tell you one thing and one thing alone theydeserve something and that's not you spitting in their faces going on and onabout how much their game sucks i think you people need to keep your opinionto yourself about if you feel TS sucks you have to as it was very correctlywritten in that review on the main page need to move the hype away when yourate or think or even speak about a game because if you don't your doing theperson you tell it sucks a crime...i am utterly disgusted how easily youpeople switch opinions.
I forgot the color then I had to sift through my ICQ msg to find it. Lol. About this e-mail, this is just the end of it. Now i can say what I want about it here, so listen up Farhad. What the Fux? He sent this to me and TSP, now if he is saying that tumsun and BG:TS are quick to change their opinion, or it is a shot at me and TSP or just a big go at everyone in the Ts community, I don't know. But we aren't putting down WW, the only peeps who do that are BG:TS (j/k). He says he has been in the C&C community forever. Now if he has, then he walks around with his eyes closed because me and everyone else are not slaggin' off the game or WW. My opnion on the is game was it was going to be great, and in my view I was right.It wasn't exactly the best punctuated E-mail. There only about 3 sentances in it. I'll have to do something with it on Tumsun. Anyhow, guys what do you think about it? ( Ah the sound a msg board style post :) TheShadow
man, i just heard babylon 5 (the game) was cancelled. damnit. i was really looking forward to it. *grumble* so, is freespace 2 any good?Tim
let me just clear something up here - when i bitch people or sites like i did in my previous post and slap 'em around a bit, it doesn't actually mean i don't love
'em. i'm just very bad at showing affection. :) hey, my girlfriend is the prettiest girl on this side of the galaxy and i love her very very very much, but i bitch her all the time too, telling her she's phat and stupid. and she loves me back in a similar fashion. :) no dear visitor/site/fellow updater, you're in trouble when i ignore
you, never mention your existence and .. ehr... and. why do you think i never mention microsoft? or ets, for that matter. :)
anyway, in today's tiberian twilight not so new-news, it looks like ttm, ttc and ttn are merging to found, and i quote, the TumSum of the TT world
(unquote). mwa-hahaha! excuse me, i'm just going to laugh my ass of.
oh, and garr ... i feel no resentment towards you. you're my old-school buddy! =pTim
Going with the trend of site bashing, I thought I'd go ahead and bash TumSun. TumSun sucks! Oh wait... I work for TumSun, don't I? Nevermind...
Okay, that wasn't funny, was it? Actually, I'm sleepy... I need rest, but I'm sitting here stairing at the screen like a zomby for an unknown reason. FLAME ME.
No, actually... FLAME KANE41... he can't check his email right now anyways... ;)
While, you're at it, FLAME M!KE and tell him to spell right.
Since you have your email client up and running, go ahead and FLAME ALKALINE, $creamer(does that email addy work anymore? I dunno, flame him and test it out ;), Gamma(hmm... I dunno about this address either...),TIM, and... ah... screw it, just click on their names on the sidebar...
While you're in the flaming mood, go ahead and FLAME THE FORUM. Thanks.
How about we start a 3D-Pong Community? ;) I can see it now... 50000 hits plus per day!... Yes... 3D Pong...[-lp-]Oliver
Ahh the good old days of posting message board style. I couldn't have said what Warmaker said better myself. If anyone has a problem with our posting our comments, opinions flames etc just click the Back button. We're going about starting a new community from scratch, *hoping* to keep it layed back. We might break some rules doing this but if you don't like it like I said earlier leave. For a while it was working. As Warmaker was saying the whole TTM thing was pretty damn funny. People want to critiscize our methods? How can they critiscize the fact that we've been open under 2 months and already we have the top people in the TS community working here, I fail to see where we're messing up.
If you know anything about the internet and communicating on it you know that sarcasm doesn't work to well and sometimes something appears to be "mean" and a "flame" when its really just mine or Warmaker's sad attempt at a joke.
If you want to see how damn cool the site used to be I suggest you read our archives at the bottom and if you don't laugh thats a good sign that you're either dead or don't get our jokes. If either of these are the case, following with the theme of this post, leave.
I will not, as the webmaster of this site tell any of my staff to "tone it down" or don't make fun of people things. That my friend would go against my beliefs and the way I like to run this site. If this offends you simply leave, we're not making you stay. I think though, people are going to like our approach. It'll probably be a little refreshing to get some real feeling in a post and get a few bullshit posts every once in a while.
As you can tell I'm totally not as good at writing these things as Warmaker is but I will end it with a good quote:
We're normally nice guys.[-lp-]Kane41
I wake up this morning to this... life is fun :( When I started reading this page just now, I became obvious that people took what I said definitely the wrong way. I never meant anything against BG:TS, I was just joking around. That post about Tumsun being better than BG:TS was just me joking around, in a similar fashion that Kane41 and myself we're joking about it on ICQ at the same time. I'm friends with a couple of ppl at BG:TS to the extent that I talk to them on ICQ quite often. When Encoded was in trouble when his ICQ and CNCBoard password's got out I was the one who changed them so that people wouldn't take over his accounts (he was on holiday and people we're already starting to use his ICQ account) I did this not really having talked to him for quite a long period of time... I'm normally a nice guy. I'll single Hitmann out too as we we're recently seen to be a site to bash him quite allot. While we've never talked that much on ICQ, I still consider us friends. There have been a few cases, that as we're both Aussies we've worked together to solve a problem, an example of which is when we worked out which was the best way for us to get the Platinum Edit.
I told Andreas on ICQ (he was offline at the time, it was just a note) that I was joking like a day and a half ago. If he takes offence to that post, and thing's I’ve said after well then I simply don't care. If he doesn't realize that I don't mean any harm by it then he's just going to have to lighten up. Leave your computer Andreas and go outside, you'll see that not everything in life goes your way and if you can't take a joke then you're going to have problems.
Unlike the way that I, and other staff members post on Tumsun we're really allot different than the way we look there. I joke around allot and I guess it’s fair to say that I sometimes have a weird sense of humor, after all this is the Internet and unlike some people it isn't my life and I'm just here to have fun. As a couple of people could tell you a few days ago I was going around saying how much I wanted one of those Realdoll's for my birthday. As they knew I was just joking, I mean I don't have a spare $5000 for a good blow up doll :)
As I'm normally online when most of you are asleep, allot of people that don't know me seem unable to detect my sarcasm, or detecting sarcasm online in general. I don't care if I'm your boss either Alkaline, and that old school thing was just a joke, Tim and I joke about that quite allot.
[-lp-] stands for l337 p1mps and is the clan that Kane41 and I started together. The [-lp-] page will be the page I move to after I step down from Tumsun in a few days and will be allot like this site, except it will focus on the TS community and a more general range of subjects.
As this site gets better on paper, with more hits and more quality staff members it seems like it is getting worse in reality. As our long time visitors will remember, Kane41 and I just use to joke around on this site bashing all the other TT sites and telling them how we owned them. We we're joking around and they knew it. Soon after, Royalty (who works at the main TT site that we we're bashing and has ftp access to our site as he also works for our host) actually added himself to our updating script and updated here making fun of us. If this had happened in the TS community, everyone would have sat together and had a good cry, but we just took it as a joke, we knew he was joking and after all, we deserved it :)
With similar, even less offensive posts here now I seem to be getting flames for everyone about how it's bad, ruining the community and stuff. With this site, Kane41 and myself set out to make the TT community allot more layed back than the TS community, however with all the people who are too up-tight out there it's going to fail. We wanted to make something different, but whenever someone doesn't post a boring, only the facts news post someone complains about it. This site was better when we only got 30 hits a day, and if we said something, our a visitor would occasionally email us telling us how cool the style of this site is. I'm not breaking any laws here, even if I wasn't joking I can say that something sucks, and if that pisses you of then I don't care. Simply don't visit this site, after all its ours, not yours. If you want to be in a boring community, go join the TA one.
BG:TS (I won't link to them on this post, you'll see why in a moment) has decided to use their pic of the day feature as a spoiler feature! they have posted a screenshot from the ending GDI cutscene...for god's sake WTF?!?!?! Resist the temptation!
This message doesn't apply to staff members, as I PRESUME we, being our elite selves, have already beaten the GDI campaign, even though we all know GDI sucks ;)
Hope you didn't mean what I hope you did'nt mean when you said "my bed looks good right now" theshadow...hrm...
And welcome Tim...what an entrance that was ;)Jaguar
Some people like conventional weapons, and some like hi tech weapons. The C&C series has always been about mixing the two together. If a game just sticks to conventional weapons, it limits the variety in the game, and that's why westwood included futuristic-like weapons in their games. It spices up everything. It seems, though, that conventional warfare is slowly disappearing from the C&C series. Everything is shifting towards the totally futuristic and unconventional side, with the old units and weapons being dropped in favor of new ones. We've seen the beginning of this with the mechs in favor of the tanks, the new weapons like railguns and plasma cannons.
The people that prefer the old conventional weapons are most likely going to lose out in TT; pretty much everything is going to end up high tech and futuristic. For all of you conventional weapons people, you will have to look elsewhere. But, where else is there to look? I don't know of any companies doing a conventional warfare game: they are all fantasy or future.Alkaline
... my bed looks like a really good idea at the moment. Where does it mention butter Alkaline? What did I come here for? Oh yeah, hello Tim! Welcome a board this ship will be sailing in around one year :) It depends what kinda love your giving out. You sound at lot like a guy I know called TC. Am I the only guy here who knows Kanes first name? Why do I go onto a different subject each sentance?Here a good idea: We could start our own tournament between all TS Staff. Organise games and stuff, though I'm pretty sure someones alredy thought of this :) We could have Tumsun against BG:TS, oh lets not get into that. Lol. Good night everyone.TheShadow
First, about the script... I have known for about a week or more how to fix it, i've just been too lazy to do so. And yes, it does mention Guestbook on the Wishlist script. I converted the script last night and I just wanted to get it working so I could go to bed :P
Tim, I am feeling some resentment from you. It's not really RSN you hate. I think your father was turned to the dark side when you were very young and you are still bitter. You need to learn how to express your inner feelings. And your little "Justin" has been taking about a whole MONTH for this durn redesign thing. We wanted to get up and off our current host but we've had to just *sit* there with a non-working downloads directory while Justin takes forever on the layout. Bah. I'm bitter too.
Andreas actually got mad at "us" for flames? Like we get many hits anyways... actually, they are going up, aren't they? I'm even getting a few emails from people asking me TT questions... like... "When is it coming out?" lol...
You should really change the script, Alkaline. Right now, it pisses server admins off =) Other than that, the script is great...
...but... let's try to keep the peace, even though the flaming's all fun and jokes =)
BGTS was cool when it was still called Techno's Tiberian Sun Pages. What happened to Techno anyway? I sorta hate RSN too. I hate how they're stealing my old PCNC lay-out for their redesign. And I hate how they keep Justin occupied while I need him. Tim
Thanks for letting me aboard, guys! Feels good to be sharing the love with all of you! Love to Mike, Kane41 (do you have a real name anyway?), Garrett and Screamz. I don't know any of the other guys around here, but hey! have some of my love too! There's enough for everyone!
Keep your eyes pealed (Mike rejoice - there's finally someone aboard who makes more spelling errors than you do. But then again, I am good looking so it's okay for me to be dumb.) for more stuff from me, but I really need some sleep first. Before I go, one question: is it just me, or is it really stupid that our wishlist says "Thank you for posting in our GUESTBOOK"!? Sounds gay to me. Oh well ...
Oh, and Al: 4 years straight. I 0wn you. ;)Tim
It was fun for a while, but we don't need to be rippin' BG:TS 24:7. Nor Mike, our humble and p1mpish master. :) Is there a record for the most amount of posts in a day? Within the space of like 5 hours :) No more rippin' BG:TS, for the moment. Maybe we should concentrate on somewhere else to start rippin'. Only kidding.TheShadow
A new patch was released for the new TS patch currently being tested, and you will now be able to see your oponnents base once the patch has gone public, you'll like it =) some laser graphics have also been changed, but I hope they're temperary, cause it's basically a red line...ACK!!!
And what's with the bashing going on with Battlecows: TS? So what if they're !@#$ing !@#$ers just doing their !@#$ing business? It's their job =) <---(That's a joke, *gag*Mike*choke*)
Enough said, let the flames being! <---(That's a joke too guys)Jaguar
Al, that [-Ip-] stands for 1337 pimps...Kane41's clan =)
I, uh, am not in the clan and won't be commenting on it =P
OK now for something completely different, about this tiberium value stuff floatin' around...why the hell isn't there a way to CREATE a tiberium patch??? Many a time I have practically starved after realizing how little tiberium there was on a certain map...it'd be nice to be able to place a "blossom tree" somewhere...hmmmm...it would make a nice counter for enginner/infantry rushes too.Jaguar
Theres a shot at Kane and Mike! Or is it? Too true Alkaline. I think that BG:TS is a pretty cool site. They have the best file section ( <---- all off the record of course :) for downloads on TS and have cool news-updaters. But c'mon guys, it is just some fun we don't really mean it, usually. No need to take it personally. We all get angry *cough* mike *cough* told you i had a cold :) No need to get all worked up. Ah screw it all! Our site, don't have to come here, we say what we want.Note:
This doesn't reflect the views of the site. I don't think.On the subject of names, do you think I should have my title changed to Content/FrontPage Window Washer. Just E-mail me
with what you think. Or should it just be 'guy who hangs around and posts stuff'? Hehehe.TheShadow
I swear, I should rename myself Peacemaker. It would be Warmaker's job to start wars and my job to stop them. Well, nevermind, he's already doing that...Alkaline
I have nothing against BG:TS and think it's a pretty good site. Even if they get more hits than we (RSN) do, i'm not bitter. Honestly, i'm not. In any case, the head man himself, Andreas, rang me up on icq this morning and was quite displeased at Warmaker's comments about the site. He was talking to me like I owned the site... it was kind of wierd at first, but then he reminded me I was the vice webmaster.
I am a decent person and I do not like unpleasant things. Warmaker, even though your name *is* War Maker, that doesn't mean you actually have to start wars :P. If we want to have a good TT community without everyone hating each other even before the game is officially announced, we have to *respect* each other. Good natured teasing between staff members is fine... But apparently not with BG:TS, it seems they are kind of touchy on the subject. And besides, it's immature to insult other pages for what I see is no apparent reason...
Hmm, with two war-making/flaming/insulting leaders of this page, I foresee maybe a few problems in the future with other pages... Well, we'll see what happens.Alkaline
I just e-mailed VTed from over at Westwood
about some TT stuff. So I should have a reply by monday, roughly. I won't be posting it anywhere but here so everyone else you can," come and get it baby!" unquote. :) From Tim Tibetts [ Tiblabits] of 3d Files
. He was just commenting on how he had got Voodoo4 and 5 .com . So they would have to buy them back of him. Lol. What has this got to do with TT, absoultely nothing. Damn this early winter cold is sending me crazy. Ah but never mind, kinda cool really.TheShadow
Wow, we have as many updates as most all of the TS sites out there. This site is really coming along nicely. Who would have thought that we'd have all the top names in the TS community under one roof?
Yeah sure no problems with Tim and all his dope slinging monkeys moving in but wait...my color? You touch upon my sacred orange? That may be to much my friend =)
Apologies to M!ke for not counting him as old school and I'm glad he finds me being nice a funny thing =)
Hey guys I think BB( battery boy, well you call him that ) my be catching onto your plot to rule the- uh, oh sorry, oh so it's not that, right I see. The [-lp-] is a battle clan. Hehehehe lol. Also hello to Tim :) I thought I was content whore. Not that it really matters because we can't really do to much more yet. Every one whos coming here from Tumsun, go away! We like not having any hits but us staff. Lol. No doubt I'll have something else up later.TheShadow
A few things, I will not do the z's anymore. I agree with Warmaker about tumsun/BG:TS/RSN. I mean Kane hired me off the cyber-street ( and then hired me for tumsun, but that's different ;). I was here for 5 minutes reading all the posts that were put up since I left for school this morning. Now you may not think that to long, but I'am a very
quick reader, usually. See we don't care about news, or rules, we just put up our general views on life and other things :)Props go to the almighty Alkaline
for putting up the cool wishlist. I suppose your right Kane, no you *are* right. There we are,decisive :) Maybe we should pick a different peep from a TS site each day and start rippin' them. Hehehe that would be cool. Ok I'll start now. First up on the 'rip list', me. It was fuxoring stupid, gay, lame, crap, sad, and dumb to post a link here from Tumsun when I'd been told not to. So I profusly aplogise to you all of you.Ah that's better. Hmmm what else is there to say, oh yeah, seems that Rockstar have released a demo for GTA2! Yes! I loved the orginal game and GTA-London was pretty cool to. No address to link I'm afraid, but if you check some where like www.downloads.com
, they should have it. That's it for the moment.TheShadow
I've always liked the word Spiffy so I guess I'll just use that as a subject for this update that doesn't have anything really to do with spiffiness.
Well, about warmaker being my boss... I don't really care, I hated being a boss myself. I'm a do-things kind of guy. I used to be master of content in the TS community until I got sick of seeing the same darn thing all the time. Since I haven't done any content in about a year, maybe I could help out here.
Oh, hello Tim, welcome aboard. We got quite a well balanced site here I'd say, eh? My bets are you making an update about once every week. I never see you online... is that because you have a different icq number or something?
Yeah, it might be my fault the board atmosphere kind of died, I suppose it was all those useful posts that people might actually be interested in. my bad.
Oh, and to Oliver: I discovered that problem in the script a couple weeks ago, and have been sending the fix to whoever mentions the bug to me. I also know how I can make the script not have to execute every time the page is loaded. I'm just too lazy to fix it.
Speaking of being around for a long time, I have been here the longest (except for tim): I started Rising Sun
a whole two and a half years ago. Respect me! muhahaha. I guess Tim will have to go and tell how long *he's* been in the community...
And what the heck is [-lp-] supposed to be?Alkaline
More crap from me, so skip over this if you're after a useful post... so much happens in just one day i can't seem to keep up :(
First, I may as well welcome Alkaline to the team :) Man this sites staff just keeps getting better, I mean two years ago I would have never thought I was going to be you're boss, in an indirect kinda way :)
I've actually been acting the webmaster myself and had a turn at getting another updater for our already large staff, Tim that you know, or at least should know from PCNC. I'm hoping that with Tim arriving to the staff you’ll no longer just be getting your pr0n from me, and you'll now have a second staff member with a great taste when it comes to music.
As the kinda message board atmosphere of this site has died down, I'm going to at least do my best at continuing it... first, YES stop all the fux0ring z's... please? Linking here from Tumsun is lame and pathetic eh? I think I remember someone doing that a while back too :)
We're kinda turning into a programming discussion place too, nice to see that Oliver's actually taking a turn at telling Alkaline stuff about Perl. My quest for PHP starts this monday, I've gotta start learning it. I'd start earlier, but I don't really think that my brain will be in much of a mood to be working on Sunday... Sunday morning in particular :)
It's nice to see that some people are also taking the time to post proper posts at this site. I personally hope that Alkaline's second, more optimistic outlook comes true... but to tell you the truth I'm seriously not sure if that'll come true. I mean, is it just me, or have Westwood really lost their touch? I mean Red Alert wasn't that special, and TS wasn't leaps and bounds ahead of the field, I still haven’t decided if I think that SC (w/ BW) is better than TS, especially for multiplayer. I mean, the music in TS wasn't anything to write home about (read: sucked) either as one of our loyal visitors pointed out in the wishlist (props to Alkaline for setting that up BTW :) The only decent song in TS was Stomp, and that's not even on the music CD... WTF is up with that? I don't really think it was Frank's fault/lack of talent either... as Alkaline pointed out in his TS review the music wasn't that special probably cause he was told to make it subdued and futuristic and it ended out as background music, not the pumping electronic/techno/industrial tunes that you got from C&C through parts of Warfare and Just Do It. Anywayz, enough of me complaining about TS music... if you're after a good game soundtrack get the Wipeout 3 one.
Even though the "war" is apparently over, and it would be the immature thing to stir things up again, that’s exactly what I'm about to do. BG:TS are lame, and apart from Gen. Sheppard we don't want any of them here... they're not Knight-esque lame though :) And exactly as Kane41 said, we never planned for this to be a Tumsun/BG:TS/RSN only the facts and no fun news sites, this was going to be a site where we just had fun, posted some TT news if we wanted to, put if we didn't then we wouldn't care... after all it's your choice to come to this site, not ours. The TS community is to too up-tight now-days as it is, becoming more and more like the TA community when we should be more and more like the SC community where ppl could post shit just for fun, knowing that everyone would know that they we're joking, rather than fearing that they we're only going to get flamed by a bunch of lamers who don't know what they we're talking about in the first place (I remember back to the time when I knocked AOL on Tumsun :). It's exactly as one of our astute and obviously intelligent visitors put it on our message board (where I posted, with typo's btw)
they act like only staff reads it
And imho that's how sites should generally be, and thats what i'm hoping [-lp-] will be for the TS community when it opens. Oh, and wtf is up with "to an extent"? Ummm, I'm and old-schooler now to ph33r me Kane... I fought long and hard to stop being lame and I worked at Tumsun before WW-U even existed. Heh, so I guess that makes me a new school old schooler :) Actually, it doesn’t bother me that much... respect, especially in the general gaming community isn't earnt from being around for a long time (we all one old schooler that no-one respects :) it comes from actually being a nice person and stuff... :)
Heh, this post is way too long, don't even think about the possibility of me proof reading it and fixing the typo's. With that in mind, I'll leave you with the funniest thing i've read today, which mind you has only been going on for about an hour...
I'm usually a nice guy[-lp-]Warmaker
Since our humble leader apparently liked my wishlist idea, he immediately set out on the task of telling me to make it myself. Well, alright, I grabbed the guestbook code from Matt's Script Archive
and made an operational wishlist out of it. Guess what that means? It's time to start posting things there you want to be in TS! Click here
for the wishlist. It's also on the sidebar in the Features section.Alkaline
Hehe I feel all special now, someone replied to one of my posts :) Here's what the person had to say:
On TTR, you said that tiberium should be worthless in TT. I disagree. tiberium isn't sold, it's physically used to build things. If it were sold, then how would that work in TS? The world is in chaos, no organized people to sell ittoo. Besides, who would buy tiberium from Kane?!
That is a very interesting concept, one that I hadn't even thought of. In TD it was pretty obvious that it was used for money. I remember well the cutscenes that described Nod's holdings of the world market, and the "importance" of the tiberium holdings around the world. But, in the war-torn chaotic battlezone we know as Tiberian Sun, where's the market to sell this stuff? Since tiberium sucks up valuable minerals from the ground, why not just use those minerals right there and build stuff with them? Maybe I missed something... maybe they have been doing that all along and I'm just ignorant... What do you guys think?Alkaline
Thank goodness we didn't see the beginning of a new war. Minutes before the nuclear bomb you saw rise before you was about to explode, I managed to convince the head hauncho to divert its path into the ocean where it exploded harmlessy. All in all, I'd say it was a good day's work. *Wipes the dust off his hands*. Now to kick back and start reading "How to take over the world in 80 days", it's quite a good book, I suggest you read it.Alkaline
For handling the PR for the site. If he doesn't do it we'll probably be closed down before the end of the year =)
While I'm here let me just go into a few things. This site isn't your typical run of the mill site as fan sites go. We're trying to run it layed back and relaxed. Thats why you'll see our h@x0r talk, bashing of other sites/people, message board style posts. I mean wouldn't you rather read that then read made up news by us? Maybe I should put a terms and conditions page to get in. By entering this site you agree to not take it seriously. Maybe thats the reason why people get upset with some of the stuff on here. Where has the fun gone in the communities? I see TTR almost as a retreat where the staff here can have some fun and report some good (can I use that word?) news at the same time. The sites now are just plain way to serious. Now compared to some other guys like Alkaline, Cyberman, and to an extent my dear co webmaster W@rmaker I might be a newbie but I still know that things have definitely changed. Still though sites are just to business like, and competitive. I probably have something to do with the second part of that but lets not get into that right here and now.
Well thats about all from me. So the moral of the story is chill out, have fun, this is what its supposed to be all about.
Where I come from people respect each other and are generally just *nice* to each other. I've always hated firing people and I always hate saying bad things about people. And I especially hate the thought of lying. Kane, you're a cool person, just a little *touchy*, especially about people claiming to be more powerful or better than they really are. I usually just ignore what they say. I honestly think Erazmus is a cool guy. He's definitely more mature than most out there. Let's just all get along and make this a happy place, mmmkay? If you really want to pick on someone, go pick on Dave, he seems to enjoy it.Alkaline
Well it seem as if there's another lame addition to BG:TS. Who would this not so refreshing person be? Erazmus. Get this, after reading my little post about Hitmann batting for the other team, he used his new found power as a super trial updater guy and posted this to me:
On a side note... Even though I am new to BG:TS, I know they are a great crew here. So Kane41 how about a little more respect for Hitmann. Thanks. :)
Ok well screw that. My site, I say whatever the hell I want. You don't like it Erazumapieceofshit take your little powers and shove them up your ass.
Now wouldn't it be great if he posted this on BGTS?
That ladies and gentlemen is what happens when I go over the deep end =)
Now people don't get me wrong I'm usually a nice guy, but when I see some newbie updater at BGTS reprimanding me that just pushes me way way over the edge.
seems like everyone's into theories so here's mine:
- the aliens have "hired"/conviced Kane into attempting to turn earth into a tiberium world
- That thing in the nod ending is the tacitus =)
- that danged tacitus turns earth into a tiberium world (hmmmm...how does "Tiberia" sound?)
- Kane either IS or is allied with the alines
- the aliens (the scrin for you techinical people) LIVE off tiberium
- by turning the earth into a tiberium world, the aliens can hence forth live on earth...can you say "The Arrival"?
- the aliens backstab kane and turn agains all of humanity...therefore uniting humanity (and kane??? ack!) against the aliens...erm...sounds like independence Day
- We fight the scrin in TT =)
Sounds logical eh?
And welcome battery store boy!Jaguar
Remember back in the TS days when every Tiberian Sun page had a wishlist? Those were awesome. Why don't we have one here at TTR? It really makes things more interesting than just saying "oh there's no news today" or "oh look, dark reign 2 was released" or something boring like that. Here's my first wish:
Give me a new interface damnit!
Thank you, thank you. No need for applause.Alkaline
If you're going to make up a theory, don't do a half-baked "I think this and maybe this will happen". You gotta set your foot down and say "This *will* happen" or something of that sort. Here's my theory on TT:
- The aliens make their presence known
- Kane returns as healthy as ever (as in every C&C game)
- New GDI supreme commander (as in every C&C game)
Other than that I don't know anything else.There are two ways Westwood could go with TT. The first is continuing on their current track of development style from C&C to RA to TS, which means:
- Full motion video has an even bigger budget with even bigger name actors
- The two sides become even more different, thus creating an even less balanced game than TS
- The game interface is just slightly "enhanced" from what it is now, making a cumbersome mess
- The game uses graphics that are three years old
- Westwood fixes unbalanced game issues by hindering the interface
- Westwood encrypts the mix files even more than before, making editing 3 times as hard
- Westwood pisses off 50 percent of their fans, which do not buy a westwood game again
In case you didn't notice, just about all of those are what happened with Tiberian Sun. Here is an optimistic outlook:
- Westwood uses completely computer generated cutscenes except for the use of Kane, because he's just so damn cool
- Westwood makes the aliens playable, so that there are three sides in the game. Even if one side sucks, the other two would be playable against each other.
- The interface is totally remade and optimized for the new and fancy stuff put into TT.
- TT uses state of the art graphics
- TT is not hindered in any way by interface gimmicks that try to prevent unfairness
- TT uses a completely non-proprietary mix format, making mix editing available to the masses, and they also include a map editor.
- Westwood gains back the respect of the fans they pissed off with TS.
I really really hope Westwood will do the second.Alkaline
TumSun, TSNNZ, TS Center, RSN... now all we need is a guy or two from BG:TS and we've got it all set! =) The biggest TT site for the future! =) Heh... with the largest TS sites backing it up... that'd be pretty nifty =)[-lp-]Oliver
Dang it, Kane41! I just got rid of Cyclone! Now I have to get rid of Battery Boy??? Sheesh! =) Hey, J/K Alkaline, welcome aboard.
I want to talk with you (Alkaline) about Newscaster though... the way you have it executing the script everytime the page is loaded is VERY bad for the server, especially on large sites (as in TumSun's case when we crashed a Dual P2 550 with 256MB RAM.. heh). How about instead of executing the script everytime the page is run, make the script create a text file that is included on the frontpage instead of executing the script? I know it'd take some work to change it, but I think it'd be worth it. Also, have you fixed the auto-link feature in Newscaster? you have it as: $themessage=~s/(^\s)([\S]*)(.com.net.org.uk.de[more...]
I believe it SHOULD be:$themessage=~s/(^\s)([\S]*)(\.com\.net\.org\.uk\.de)[etc.]
You've probably caught that error, but just making sure =)
Since the whole earth after TS is pretty much made of tiberium, in my opinion it would be worth as much as dirt. If gold covered the ground, it wouldn't be worth very much, because there would be a lot of it. The thing that makes something worth dough is its rarity. Thus, in TT, tiberium logically shouldn't be a resource. The market would be saturated with so many people harvesting the stuff that the price would go down and it would be worthless. What they need is something like Tiberium über-crystals that are jam-packed with something special.Alkaline
Erazmus from over at BG:TS
isn't happy Kane. He must be coming here because he may have seen Wolfmans post to notice your 'remark' about Hitmann. BTW I'm completely neutral here ;)I'd didn't post on Tumsun to get us hits, just to tell ppl that we are here. Anyway, jag did it too on TSNNZ and we had a mention on RSN and on BG:TS.Having just watched the Nod ending, I've a little theory. It looked to me as if the atmosphere was being stripped away from the earth, so we may be looking at a whole new line of units. Like different types of infantry for example. As VTed mentioned earlier, we are very probably fighting the aliens, who are called the Scrin as far as we know.There are lots of ways the sides could go. Nod could be allied with the Scrin, or it could be just Nod against the aliens because there won't be much of GDI left after the bomb. Or possibly it might not even be on Earth, it might be on the Moon or other planet, a little like the TA levels were ( as in location ).That's my musings for the moment ( catchy huh? ). BTW the way Alkaline, not to many people read the forum at the moment. Hense only about 3 posts from people other than the staff :) Nothing else to say, so I'll cya you guys later. (There didn't say it).TheShadow
Now kids don't go copying Hitmann cause he's gay. Mmmmkay?
Just to set the record straight all our hits came from TumSun after you made that post referring to us. The one I told you not to do because its 1) lame. 2)pathetic. 3) Can't think of anything else but it's bad.
Just because I have thought up a sign-off kinda thing like hitmann has, why do you need to start rippin' me by sending me hate mail :( If you didn't like it, you should have said so.Anyways
, hello to Alkaline from over at The Rising Sun Network
. Maybe I should send him my review and see what he thinks of it... Is it just me or is Alkalines' color different on the sidebar than on his posts? We seem to racking up some hits now, mostly thanks to our mention at BG:TS. I noticed there was another post in the forum whoo hoo!! Nothing left to say but anywayzzzzzzzzzzzzzz later. Haha said it![ Kane put down that knife, what have i warned you, Jag, Mike help!!] TheShadow
Yup that was a record, 135 votes. On that note I decided to change the poll. First here are the results from the last one.
|Seperate game (eg TS, C&C)||113|
|Expansion (eg Aftermath)||9|
|Nothing at all||2|
|What the hell are you talking about?||11|
Wasn't that exciting? The new poll asks what did you think of Tiberian Sun. Do I even have to tell you to beat 135?
This was overheard being said in the TS newsgroup. It was too funny to be held back:
Person1: How come we never see any RTS build around the Old Wild West? Of course we'd probably be arguing about the unfairness of Cattle Rushes.
Person2:I can see the surreal posts coming in now...
"Bloody cattle rushes, trampling my cyborg cowboys.. goddamit.. How can I stop them? Does building more than one stable increase horse production? How do I get my prairie dogs to go underground? I can't get round the fences in the OK Corral.. help!! I'm stuck on that mission where you have to rescue that Mexican bandit, Tratatos!! What's that brown stuff that spreads from the BuffaloArse Veinhole? and on and on into the sunset.. :)"
Marshall McNeil v The Nod Bunch... hmm.. you never know
Hehe just goes to show there's always someone around to gripe ;)Alkaline
Your neighborhood battery boy is here in style. Be prepared to see the awesome might of *BATTERY POWER*. Hmm let's take a look around and see what I will have to put up with... we got the boys from TmSun.com
, a dude from TSNNZ
, and even a guy from TS Center
. Good thing i'm here round it out. Here, I present to you, your first representative from your very own... *trumpet fare*... Rising Sun Network
! Howdy. Hope your stay is a pleasant one. Oh, and a side note, at least i'm not named after a character in the game. Hah, what originality. :PAlkaline
To further prove that we want only grade "A" meat...errr...people...from all the other sites I've hired Alkaline from RSN
to be the new vice webmaster. Now I know you're asking yourself "Why the hell would you hire some no name loser off the street like this o mighty Kane41?" I know I know, but everyone deserves a chance, so what if he doesn't know shit about perl or doesn't have his own godamn TS mod named after him. Honestly though, the real reason I hired Battery Boy was because I knew 0l!ver was getting lonely being the only vice webmaster =)[-lp-]Kane41
Well since there isn't that much TT news why don't you check out a site dedicated to your favorite webmaster's (that's me godamnit) school/town. I added it under the links page but you can also get to it by clicking here
. Its not my site so don't go writing me hate mail.
We really have to get TheShadow to stop saying that "anywayz later" crap huh guys? Everytime you see him say it, write him hate mail by clicking here.
Think about it Jag, having seen both endings which to do you think is more plausible and is actually better? Anywayz, Nod deserve a win and you won't be getting me or Kane to change the side info and story when it gets up ;) I don't really know why I make these posts about hits but here goes. We have just passed, yes you guessed it, 4 thousand hits :) As my last plee for screenshots failed miserably, will someone at least acknolegde to me that they were the 4k hit. I will
say who you were and I will
give you a pat on the back. Etc. Long aragraph huh? Nothing left to say but, Anywayz LaterTheShadow
MUAHAHAHAHA!!! I e-mailed VT about TT (what else? TS? oh shut up!)...of course since TT hasn't been officially announced yet, Westwood
can't disclose any REAL information about it, but he did hint at something. Here's the Q&A:
Jaguar: Does Tiberian Twilight's story line assume that GDI won? or does it assume that Nod won?
VTed: For now I can't say which side won - but you might be surprised at who you will be fighting...
Hmmmmm...maybe you fight the scrin in TT (aliens, aka 3rd party)...but if you did, that would probobly mean that Nod won, and if that's true I'd finally get to figure out what the hell all that stuff was in the Nod ending, even though our content (nod and GDI info) theoretically already "knows" that =) Looks like we won't be re-writting our side-info quite yet =)
Oh, did I mention I got another Q&A from him on the expansion pack for TS that's in the works? Hehe, well I did...here it is:
Jaguar: Will there be an option to turn off the hunter seeker in mutliplayer/skirmish games that in the expansion pack??? please please pleeeeeaaaaaaase let there be an option to get r id of that anoying little...er...well anyway will that option be added?
VTed: I don't think so. Response to the H/S has been pretty good...
Hmmmmm...I musta missed that positive responce part, but whatever.
Take THAT staffers! =)Jaguar
.. there's a little story about...., oh sorry wrong thing, right, isn't it nice we have been mentioned on some TS sitez? So it seems the list of people who come here includes wolfman now :). BTW Chris, viceroids do attack the units they mutated from, i lost a large attack force to four adult viceroids I created by accident. Now C'mon Chris Ts ain't that bad. It's only the infantry graphics that suxz not much else really. I said that in my review, when some body has a chance to read it *cough cough* Damn weather :)What's with this Kane: ' Ok Kids, now a TheShadow impression,'Anywayz Later'? Is that a shot at me? lol, nice to see that our new guyz swingin' into action. On that note, what happened to NodNuke? Not much else to say really. So bye-byeTheShadow
BG:TS linked us, it seems Wolfman thinks that this site will be "a site to keep our eyes on in the future". So to all of you ppl who came here from BG:TS, remember that Tumsun
is a much better TS site, I mean what were you doing over there in the first place ? And why is Tumsun
a better site then BG:TS? simply because, Kane41, Oliver, BritishTS and to a lesser extent myself all work there :) I guess at least we'll get a few extra hits, like we did when Kane41 mentioned this site subtly on Tumsun
a while back :) Yey, my quote is on the random quote at the moment too.
So ummm... todays TT news is that it's still expected in 2 or 3 years.
Hey, I was loosing a mission in TS and couldn't be bothered starting it again so just for fun I built about 40 infantry guys and set up a waypoint system criss crossing across a tiberium field. I got the infantry units to go on the waypoint system and my base was full of viceroids in no time. It was actually pretty good though as the Viceroids went around killing any NOD unit that came near my base. What I don't get is why WW made it so Viceroids won't attack the side that they mutated from? Anyway if you've got nothing better to do, I recommend setting up a farm of Viceroids. I mean even if you don't like 'em when their cooked you could always sell them as cute pets to little girls (:Chris
Welcome. Here's a list of the sections we currently have open.
As you can probably tell the news is a little slow about Twilight but it is starting to come on slowly. In the mean time, make sure to take a look at the content we have up and bookmark us because we will be your number one source for information on Tiberian Twilight! [-lp-]Kane41
Well, I finally got TS a few days ago. I was so excited I almost ate both NOD and GDI CD's in the store (:
I rushed home as fast as I could and threw the GDI CD into my drive and this cool little TS spash screen popped up. I thought to myself, "Wow, this is nice". The game started up with a single comment from the EVA, "Welcome back commander...." and then all this funky installing crap popped up and then the metal C & C sign kind of popped up and I thought, "Holly crap, this is nice!"
I started up the GDI campaign and thoroughly enjoyed James Earl Jones say "Dammit". As the kodiak took off and the introduction ended I thought to myself, "This is damn nice."
Then the gloriously lighted 3D terrain slowly popped up, I held my breath, this was what I had been waiting for for so long. Then a couple of my troops arrived on scene, totally crushing the moment. For Christ's sake they looked like a bunch of craps glued together by a four year old. I screamed, I howled at the wind. Why o' why the hell did my units look so crap. As the game progressed I noticed just how horrible the animation was as well.
Well as you can imagine I was pretty bloody upset with the newest edition to my gaming library. I mean hadn't WW released hundreds of screenshots with really mad unit graphics. What the hell was going on here?
Well even thought I was pretty pissed off I decided to make the most of TS and keep playing for just a little while. Gradually I began to notice the appalling voxels less and less and concentrate on my units staying alive. By the third mission the poor effects were almost forgotten. As a flock of my golden Titan's stormed through a NOD base, their 120mm cannons shredding through the armour of enemy units I realised, "TS doesn't need flashy unit animation. TS has style."
This post is really just a message to all the others (and I'm sure there are others) that are or were disappointed in the graphics of TS. All I say to you is, do not judge a game by it's appearance. Look within and you shall find the awesome gameplay you have been craving!
I told you I'd kill Cyclone =) Heh, j/k... Good luck in the future Cyc. =)[-lp-]Oliver
I'll go with the latter.Jaguar
...Its time for a TheShadow impression. "Anywayz Later"[-lp-]Kane41
Sorry about that tumsun is here
. A bit of community news, are the other wannabe p1mpish sitez actually going to pull off the merger? We try and update daily and they only update every other month. They seem to be getting something done, kinda. Anywayz, later.TheShadow
I agree with you there Warmaker, I forget to check here for two days and we hire a new guy and we lose one. All the strain with tumsun
. I can call it that can't I? At least I got the link right ;) Hmmmm, not much else to say really, but Anywayz Later. TheShadow
Look at the sidebar: it doesn't say anything.[-lp-]Kane41
Man, I gotta check this page more often, I miss it for two days and all this exciting stuff happens. I've made the [-lp-] layout so there are are just a few small things that need to be done and my useless posts will be gone from here forever :)[-lp-]Warmaker
That's right. Even though I've only been here for a short while, but I think it would be better for me to leave in this sort of situation. I do not have anything against any of the TTR staff, so please don't misunderstand. The reason I quit is because I simply have not enough time to carry on with TTR with my final-year exams and stuff. You can call this a permenant departure. And also, thanks goes out to Kane41 for having me over.
This is Cyclone, over and out.Cyclone
Kane41, when I first joined TTR, didn't you promise me (and all the visitors) that I was in charge of some content as well? Look at the sidebar: it says Vice Webmaster.Cyclone
Amazing huh? Well anywayz, TSNNZ
(hmmmmm...I wonder if i should keep saying that in the 3rd person even though I work there...eh skrew it) found this Q&A:
PCG: What, then, can we expect from Command & Conquer 3?
Brett Sperry: People will definitely be surprised by each new C & C -- there's always a guarantee that we're going to come up with new tactics. That, at the heart of it, is why people are buying these games. And in the next C & C, especially, you're going to see a bit of a paradigm shift which I'm really excited about. A lot of these issues, what's going to happen with the basic story and the overall conflict, were thought out years ago. We're still executing to a basic script and a basic vision, and we haven't come close to exhausting what this series wants to be. Then there's the fact that Command & Conquer takes place a very rich, well constructed and fascinating world. People like Kane, they like the idea of NOD versus GDI. With each new game we bring out we add to that mythos, and we raise more questions than we answer. We leave you wondering what's going to happen next, and the story is going to take a really interesting and fun turn in Command & Conquer 3. We're going to keep people on their toes.
PCG: So when can we expect to see Command & Conquer 3?
Brett Sperry: Lets just say its going to take awhile. A long while...
Looks like Westwood
has learned their lessons...well...at least they aren't saying "coming soon" like they did 5 years ago with TS =)
If that blockquote's color looks freaky it's because Kane hasn't told me what color to use, so no flames! (and if you're gonna mail me, for god's saken don't use the right sidebar! Kane's wonderful site-building skills must have vanished there, as it currently displays my e-mail as an insignuficant buch of jibberish)Jaguar
I need some food so I can think up some good titles. Used up all brain food doing tumsun and fighting sister for control of phone line. Yo Cyclones E-mailers! Hello, why do you think I was hired? To start arguements? No, to put up some content like the Nod
side info, as Kane so brilliantly demonstrated below with his mind-boggling bullet point skillz.How come people are e-mailing you about content, Cyclone, when I'm the content whore? Also expect The Story
soon and my review of Ts which will
be up soon. And maybe a newsletter so beat that you wanna be p1mp sitez! :)Now I have to get a drink before I burst into flames. Oh yeah hello to Jaguar
from over at TSNNZ
. Got it right this time ;) Now I must get a drink! TheShadow
What are you talking about Cyclone? We have the most content out of all of the TT sites. Check out my awesome bullet list skillz below:
Yeah thats more then any TT site has out there. So there =)[-lp-]Kane41
How about a round of "real" news? Well, bad news for you Oliver! :) Westwood Studios
' has this on their job openings page:
3D Programmer (3D Action Strategy Game)
Westwood Studios is seeking a 3D Programmer with real-time 3D programming credit (using Direct 3D, Open GL or Glide) on at least one published title. Must have extensive C/C++ experience, experience with Windows 95**/98/NT programming (WIN 32/OWL/MFC). Expected to develop new 3D techniques and technologies.

A passion for games is a must.
- BS in Computer Science or equivalent required.

Could the "3D Action Strategy Game" be the upcoming RTS killer--Tiberian Twilight? If yes, then TT would definitely be 3-Dimensional! And also, they should be starting to work on TT any time now because they started work on TS just after a few weeks C&C shipped.[Recent Update: Sorry for not doing this earllier, but something screwed up my internet connection. Anyway, thanks to SonicStorm of RISING SUN NETWORK for the news.]Cyclone
Ok, ok. I've been receiving tons of e-mail messages containing complaints about the so called "content" on this site. Well, Kane41 has not yet granted me FTP access yet (yes, it's more important than immortality) as we are moving servers. But I will get it one day, very soon. So, just be patient and stick to the "content" on this front page (that's what you're reading right now) and quit blabbering about it on the other pages, as you're wasting my time as well as yours.Cyclone
Sheesh, people! Can't you spell right?! =) I'm sick of all your to/too/two, your/you're, their/they're/there, etc. etc. errors! =)
*sigh*... ah, don't worry about it... as if anyone looks at this site besides the staff anyways =) I just had to say that because I'm vice =)
***theme to 2001 plays***
I've always wanted to be introduced that way ;) Well, anyway, I, Jaguar (yes, yes, same guy over at TSNNZ
), am your new updater here, at TTR. If I had the time and skills I'd build a site myself, but alas, I don't have either =( But anyway back to the news updating part...I'll be reporting whatever news comes up (not that there is any TT news...but i'm sure there will be soon...er...well they're better be)...and whatever tasks Kane asks me to do =)
Let the games begin! =)Jaguar
Now we've this older news-script, there's nothing to make fun of. Better start filling up the front page with more of our views on life ;) Lol anywayz, it's good to see TumSun
is back up. No news really just the 1.09 patch for Ts. Heres what VT had to say:
The newest version of the Tiberian Sun patch is being released today. With the installation of this patch you will find the following additional changes.#1 The selling of wall sections no longer yields more than the wall originally cost.#2 The MCV no longer disappears when surrounded by walls.#3 It is no longer possible to build off laser fencing, stretching your base across the map.#4 Disc throwers will blow up and apply damage to those around them when killed.
There are a few more changes such as the artillery for Nod isn't quite as strong. Just log onto WOL thru Ts and you'll auotmatically be updated, though some people have said it doesn't always work. I'd wait a few days. Finally, will some one please
challenge me to a game of Ts :) Anywayz, later.TheShadow
After that fun little incident over at tumsun involving Alk's fancy newscript crashing a dual P2 550 I decided to change back to the first script, 1.2. Also, I have been having lots of problems with the site crashing on me so I thought maybe this would fix it. We'll see I guess. Sorry folks (all 30 of you) until Alkaline gets the new script all straightened out there will be no comments and no searching for news.
This also means no more making fun of the autolinks, damn now my life sucks.
Maybe you have messed up his brain, because he hasn't read my review yet. What i meant was that little paragraph shouldn't have been included in the quotes, it should have been in white, but never mind. Anyhow, Gamespot
have a massive poll up: What Is Your Favorite 40 Games Of All Time
. It includes tonnes of top games and our all time fave here: Tiberium Sun :)Anyway, go here
. They have lots of new, old and cool games like Grim Fandango, FIFA 99, Baldur's Gate, Dungeon Keeper, Starsiege Tribes ( one of my personal faves :) Half-Life, Unreal ( no Quakes though ) the list really is endless. Whatcha waiting for? Go over there? Anywayz later.
Yeah, the script isn't too bad ;)... I could make one, but I'm too lazy to make a one =) I think I'll just take Alkaline's and fix it up =) I'll fix the @
thing in a day or two... and yes, the quoted junk is supposed to be that color... =)
I wonder where Kane41 is... maybe my h4x0r1ng screwed up his head a bit too much =)
I bow to you oh master of Newscaster 2.0, now 2.1 :) Yeah what a great idea to fix the @ problem. I also noticed the buttons now work, which is nice.
Which is nice because I can put up some of my review, which will be up should we find the time: (this part shouldn't be in grey should it?) In the early 1990’s a small company known as Westwood studios, based in Las Vegas Nevada, released a game known as Dune II. This game is now known as the first real game in the RTS (Real Time strategy) genre. It involved harvesting things like spices and building up bases, defending them and building up an attacking force, you know what I’m talking about. About a year later a bomb was dropped on the, at that time, very small niche market known as RTS gaming. It was called Command and Conquer. A little like it’s older brother Dune 2, C&C, as we known affectionately know it, was a revolution in RTS gaming. Hooking many gamers straight away with a brilliant game that included on-line gaming. At the end of the game we saw a little 'bot being tested somewhere. This was the first preview movie for C&C2: Tiberium Sun.
Okay, thats about it for today. I now promise not
to rip Alkaline and not
to rip this now brilliant news script. Right this post is becoming death now and should be deleted and all knowledge of it. Now I'm going. Shesh, there's been alot of posts today. Anyways laterTheShadow
I've fixed the net/com/org/de/uk problem... if you didn't notice already... but if you still want to make comments such as:
"over the net (click on it, i dare you)"
"internet ( ha go you there you piece of cr@p newscaster, go on press it )"
Then I can "unfix" it for you guys... otherwise, shut up because what you're saying in the parenthesis doesn't make any sense ;) Should I fix the '@' thingy too?
How could you fire me after all I've done for you? =) lol.Okay no news as usual, and I'm goddamn bored. I've got myself a scanner so I can scan what ever the hell I want now! But do you really care? No. Also will someone please
challenge me to a game of Ts on the internet ( ha go you there you piece of cr@p
newscaster, go on press it ). What is going on in Alkalines head? Anyways later. TheShadow
UGH! TumSun is still
down! It probably won't be up until the weekend is over =( So... out of boredom and nothing else to do (well, besides homework, but who cares about that? =) I'm just going to post some more cr@p
here (yeah, that was 'cr' at 'p')...
Dude, this sux, I have to take the PSAT on my birthday, how sucky is that?... and being the retarded self I am, I signed up for the SAT the week before it... so now I take the SAT, then a week later the PSAT (on my birthday)... ugh, I might as well sign up for the ACT and take that the week after the PSAT... that way, I'll totally screw myself over and... hmm.. I dunno what that would accomplish =) That was a pretty long sentence, huh? =) **H4XORING**
**0UTPUT1NG B1N4RY C0D3**
**L0GG1NG 1NTO KAN341's H3AD**
**OUTPUT1NG DATA**"I OWN YOU"**END H4XOR1NG**
Yeah, so what if you see me as offline in ICQ. =)
That folks is the dark side of Oliver. You don't see it much but when you do, damn, you won't be the same. If you notice, Oliver is vice webmaster for every single freakin site. Some say it's cause he sux0rs, others say it's cause he's not l337 enough. No that's not the case, I admit that I used to think that. That is until I found the truth...
*cue the X-Files music*
You see, Oliver is not really a person. He is a bot. An evil one. Created long ago by a rogue programmer, known only as Olivetti. Now Olivetti began working on a form of aritficial intelligence. Then one day he stumbled upon something that would change the face of the TS community...err....the world forever. He named it Oliver. Olivetti died shortly after the final bugs in Oliver were squashed. Before he died Olivetti launched Oliver onto the web, that was his first mistake. It soon became clear that Oliver was no normal bot. He was hired at tumsun to write newsletters. Now most webmasters would have fired Oliver because he didn't write jack #!%& for the newsletters. At the time though, there was a not-so-l337 webmaster name Warmaker running tumsun. Now warmaker had his head up his @$$ (ahahah go for it again mr know it all 2.0) and didn't notice Oliver's evil plans to take over the net (click on it, i dare you). Then by some unknown freak event Oliver became vice webmaster.
You see, Oliver's evil plan was to become vice webmaster for every single site. It doesn't make sense I hear you mumble. Well there is one thing that vice webmasters get that few other do. That is the key to a website, FTP access. Now Oliver planned to use his new found FTP power to hold sites ransom. What did he ask for? power, that's all the b@stard wanted (yea yeah try to email b at stard) He now is in control of both tumsun and ttr. If you notice, tumsun is down. That's because Oliver is currently negotiating with Felix who is "conveniently" not here. See that just further proves how powerful Oliver really is.
Ok I'm still trying to develop a plot so shut the hell up. =)
The only reason I'm finnally coming out with this is that I feel semi safe. As of now Oliver is fired and all the passwords are changed. So hahah Oliver lives no more!
Wow folks that's what happens when the webmaster you all love gets bored.
Source: Like I said the best fux0ring TT site out there
Yeah! WTF is wrong with you TheShadow?? So what if you were hired for "content"?? That junk you posted what crap content! =)
Yeah, I took TumSun down, who cares if my email is down along with it. I only use that email for everything. You insult my l337ness again and I take down TTR too! Jeez man, you deserve to get your @$$ (yes Mr.Newscaster POS that would be an email to "at dollar dollar"... sheesh, you POS script, wtf is wrong with you? I oughta go and kick the cr@p out of Alkaline (j/k ;)) k1cked in TS. Who cares if you'll probably k1ck mine instead, I'll out-ping your POS cable modem with my 56k and disconnect you!!! =)
We have thirty visitors? WTF is wrong with you people? You enjoy reading this POS? Go do something useful instead... like challenging me to a TS game and losing on purpose so that my rank can go up... actually, so that I can get ranked (I haven't played a tourney game yet =).
Hehe... bad news to you who thought I was already assasinated by Warmaker, give it up. :) Anyway, just to think about when TT would be released... Let's see, the WW team just started on TS just a few weeks after C&C's release. Do you think that TT would be in the works soon??Cyclone
Your probably thinking (along with me) what the heck is Ts news doing on a TT site? Well since there is a distinct lack of TT news,we need something to do with C&C on the front page, not just our personal views on life as we know it. Any way, Alkaline, the cool dude who did our news script( which needs
fixing, I didn't say that ), has released his own Ts mod called Alkalines Rules of Engagement. Basically he's made it much more of an offensive game than before and changed the units, buildings, and super-weapons. As in they're not in there. Anyway head of to RSN
to check it out. This probably is nothing to do with TT, no it actually has nothing to do with TT but anyways later.
TumSun is still down =( I'll look into the script... why in the world would it make made
a URL?... sheesh... Weird things are going on in Alkaline's head =)[-lp-]Oliver
Yes if you haven't noticed we have passed three thousand visitors and if the 3k person noticed and took a screenshot, then send it in and we'll give you a mention.Geez Warmaker only just noticed about their merger (my attempt at sarcasm). That said I have had a post up in the forum for two weeks about it to which no-one
has responded. Oh well. The script is annoying isn't it. Anyways, later.TheShadow
Sarcasm is one of the hardest things to pick up on, on the internet
so here's a fore-warning, everything that I'm going to say below is totally sarcastic, and another sad attempt by yours truely at humor. This is so that by the time that [-lp-] opens up I might actually be able to say something funny :)
I havn't been paying much attention to the TT scene, so I was scoping out the TT sites on our affiliate list thingy and apparently our whores are planning some type of merger or something *yawn* :) Basically TTNation, and TTMadness and TTCentral are joining together, and wait for it - getting a domain. After I almost fainted by such exciting news I had to sit down and re-cover at which stage I noticed that the announcements on the merger we're made like 20 days ago... so ummm, what happened?
So what are my thoughts on the merger? Well I can tell you now that I'm pissed, I mean these sites didn't ask Kane41 and myself as the rulers of the TT community for permission and that's just inexcuseable... setting a bad example for the other TT sites. They think that their merger will somehow make then "the biggest TT site there is" making them the "TumSun of the TT world." But is the merger really worth their while? I mean TT won't be out for at least 2 and a half years, and I'm willing to bet that by then 2/3's of the people involved in TT sites won't be around by then. Only a handful of people visit TT sites, and those people are going to check most of the TT pages daily anyway (cause their interested in finding out about the TT community, rather than game news) so in a few months the effects of the merger won't be seen anymore. Anyway just because you're site was large early on doesn't mean it'll remain the most popular, there we're plenty of TS sites before tumsun for example.
Being the optimistic kinda guy I am, always looking on the bright side, at least it will put all the lamers together :) We're going to get hax0red again because of me saying that arnt we?
In other news there's a really exciting post right up the top of TTM, I feel that I have to thank Royalty on behalf of the entire TT community for such an insiteful post :) We're really going to get hax0red now huh?
And so ends my attempt at a sarcastic post.
BTW, I can understand it trying to autolink Internet, but the word "made".... WTF? Oliver, fix it now :)
Dang it, I hate how this script tries to be smart and automatically does stuff.. like... making the net
etc. a URL that goes nowhere...
Anyways, a TumSun 1 vs. 2 sounds good... not sure if I can play this weekend though, I am swamped with HW... I would be setting up the new forum on TumSun right now, but the server is down right now =(
First thing we are only a few hits away from 3k, so if it's you, send us a screen shot and we'll give you something ( probably a pat on the back, but it's something ).Just thought I'd tell all six of you before we go down that I have finished my review of Ts. Now we just need somewhere to put it :) I'm back at school now and I'll endeavor to do just as much work as I did during the summer, (famous last words...)in the winter. So I'm back to my boring old friends at school. Hope they aren't reading this. C'mon guys please say something
in the forum, any one. Last thing, props go to Apollo for the one, two, second piece of TT news. Anyway, later. TheShadow
Ummm.... the Platinum Edition was available in Australia Chris, wern't you reading Tumsun? :) Harvey Norman and EB had it, you just had to pre-order it from them before it's release... I mean all they had to do was search for TS in their product computer and it listed both versions there. I think Harvey Norman have still got a few copies, but it's too late now I guess. VT never released a message, and Aaron Cohen even said that you would'nt be able to get it over here.
From memory, Heat.net is free so I can't see why it wouldn't be for TS. But why wouldnt you wan't to play on WOL, I mean it's only laggy, full of Koreans and full of lamers :( All us l337 webmaster should get Kali, set up a private Kali server using Kane41's cable and pretend that we're really good :)
I'm up for a Tumsun 1 vs 2 game anytime. Do u wanna play it this weekend? Post it here or something if u do, the net boring so i'm not on much at the moment, so don't leave a message on ICQ or anything. Anyway I think Kane41 said he couldnt play cause he had to use the ISP that all hax0rs use, A0l. Afraid that your ping will be more than 100ms? :) Even with a0l you're connection will still be faster than mine... Kane41 and I have the skillz, we have the equ1pment and we have the hax0ring appz, so there's no doubt about us owning you in like 2 seconds :)
Now kids, real news is bad. Mmmmkay?
And so ends my commitment to this site for the week :) I'll work on the [-lp-] page this weekend maybe, so you don't have to put up w/ me and my gay posts for much longer :(
Just to let you know we might be down for a little while within the next week or so. The reason for this is that we're going to be moving to SGN
. So that means that all 30 of you who visit this site won't have anything to do for the time that we're down.
Yeah round o applause for apollo for posting some real news. You know it's pretty slow when you can count the amount of real news with one hand.
I felt like getting a hat trick of posts up today, and at least one of them had news in :) Any way I said I'd telly you who TC was, he's the presenter of an audio show called Daily Dementia
, which in my opinion is very cool. He was the guy who had a two part interview with Rade
back in April. Very funny and cool show. And no I didn't get payed for this little bit of PR for the DD
;) One last thing is I will be starting on a review for Ts since every man, updater, webmaster and their dogs' have one so why not me? Any way I only have a few day of free time left, so I'll be getting that done in the next week hopefully :) TheShadow
Some of you may or may not have noticed the post I've made
in the Forum. We'd like your feedback as soon as possible! We will be getting up a Fan Ficton page soon and an articles section, which will be full of my mindless babbel ;) If you do have any comments at all about anything going on in the TT world, or about anything, send them to TheShadowSSC@Hotmail.com
After things have died down a little in the ts community, as in the TumSun guys don't have as much to do, they (and all the other staff here, of course :) will be really getting this place going so stay put! :)
Wow, haven't updated here for a while =) Yeah, this script is nice... we will definately use this one when we move TumSun... I see I have the [-lp-] stuck in front of my name now too =) Just out of curiosity, why is the [-lp-] in front of our names instead of behind?
Also, after we have a TumSun 1 vs TumSun 2 game, in which Brit and I will definately whoop your butts ;) We will have an "Ignorant Americans vs. You Weirdos" or a "Check vs Cheque" game =)
I'm also starting to like NOD more than GDI... I think the stealth generator may be a bit too powerful, eh? Ok, enough rambling, I have to go to bed now... I have some tests tomorrow...
Oh, one more thing... is TS on Heat.net free? I keep on forgetting to find that out... I would prefer it if other people were there to take screens because I always forget to take screens during the time(s) when the screens are most exciting (battles, sneak attacks, etc.)
Hello every one. This is my first post just to say hello and get myself used to this news posting system. I'm open for games of TS if I'm not working. Any questions about anything ask me. Now I bet you were expecting a e-mail link, well there would but I can't seem to get it up. But never mind. It's 23:11 here (I'm in the UK :) otherwise I would have it up:)I'm not sure if we're having a fan fiction page yet, I will have to ask my master if it is permitted. Also my colour will be changed. Every one I did not
pick that colour. Content coming soon everyone! (Like tomorrow hopefully as I've finished some, my humble master will soon be posting it as my knowledge of FTP is well crap!:) Can I say that? ;) TheShadow
Damn this script is nice, Oliver, after the server move we're changing to this one. To display how little of a l337 hax0r I am it took me 5 minutes yesterday to work out why I couldn't no longer update. It was because I fortgot about the domain (which is really cool btw and was trying to update from the wrong referrer.
What really sucks is that I come here and post crap, while everyone else posts something thats worthwhile. Talking about the script I like the two sites we've got for the Choose a Site news source drop down list, too bad the there won't be a need to select the last one on the list. Talking about Warmaker.com (here comes the plug :) I havnt updated it for a few weeks, but it shouldn'y be having any server problems no more as we re-did all the IP addresses and stuff through Internic. Furthermore, I've got a news updating script there :) Either way, it doesn't matter... as soon as someone makes a layout for the clan lp website (yes that was a hint, I even know how I would like it too look, all I need is you to make it for me) and it'll be updated daily by the same fools that seem to inhabit here and Tumsun.
Until then, does anyone mind if I use this site for [-lp-] news? I promise I'll take this site seriosly soon :) I just signed Kane41 and myself up for the Fall of Order tourny thing which should be mad as it'll give us an opportunity to show of our l337 skillz, yuou tell you the truth, I can't wait to engineer rush Knight while eric and me fire multi and chemical missiles at Ravage's base (lets just hope they play together) in some good old fashioned ownage. What would be even better if a couple of other tumsun staff members who we're also member of [-lp-] decided to play together as it is a clan :) We could have Team Tumsun 1 (Kane41 and me) and Team Tumsun 2 (Oliver and BritishTS) playing it of in the finals. Of course, I would have developed a totally new denial of service program to nuke BritishTS with (I wouldn't even try Oliver, who knows that C++ programs he's written to keep his computer safe) but then it would be 2 on 1.
That's about it, I've had my fun for yet another day. Keep your eye on our message board, where I'll post my much awaited reply to Kane41's recent post in a day or two.
Uh oh guys I think Cyclone might have discovered our evil plan to rule the world using the ph33red [-lp-] sign.
To answer your question, [-lp-] is a clan tag for.....get this...our clan. Being the physic that I am I can tell that your next question will be, "What is the name of your clan oh mighty ones?" Yes yes I know I'm good. The answer is, l337 p1mps. Oh yeah =)
In the latest issue of PC Gamer they had a preview of the next evolution of the Command & Conquer series, C&C Renegade. Well that's not TT news is it? Nope the part I'm getting to is that near the end of the preview they had a good ol' fashion Q&A with Brett Sperry, Co-Founder of Westwood Studios. Here's the part of the Q&A that dealt with the future of the C&C series, Tiberian Twilight.
PC Gamer: What, then can we expect from Command & Conquer 3?
Brett Sperry: People will definitely be surprised by each new C&C -- there's alwas a guarentee that we're going to come up with new tactics. That, at the heart of it, is why people are buying these games. And in the next C&C, especially, you're going to see a bit of paradigm shif which I'm really excited about. A lot of these issues, what's going to happen with the basic story and overall conflict, were thought out years ago. We're still executing to a basic script, and a basic vision, and we haven't come close to exhausting what this series wants to be. Then there's the fact that C&C takes place in a very rich, well-constructed and fascinating world. People like Kane, they like the idea of Nod versus GDI. With each new game that we bring out we add to that mythos, and we raise more questions than we answer. We leave you wondering what's gong to happen next, and the story is going to happen next, and the story is going to take a really interesting and fun turn in Command & Conquer 3. We're going to keep people on their toes.
PC Gamer: What's the series' lifespan? Will there come a time when the C&C story comes to an end and Westwood will move on to something else?
Brett Sperry: Originally it felt like the current story was naturally going to end around the third game in the series. But now that I see how much we've put into Tiberian Sun, it can easily go another three titles. Easy. The world is so rich, there's so much going on. There's no shortage of games to write, so long as we keep coming up with cool, innovative battle tactics in addition to the great story. The fact that we're not trying to crank these games out every twelve months helps a lot.
PC Gamer: So when can we expect to see Command & Conquer 3?
Brett Sperry: Let's just say it's going to take a while. A long while.
Well there you have it. The thing that troubles me is this, "Let's just say it's going to take a while. A long while." Ouch I guess we'll be here for a while.[-lp-]Kane41
Now what the heck is going on with the [-lp-] thing? Is it some kind of hax0r thingy that just want to srew everyone up? Now, Oliver and BritishTS have it too? Egad!Cyclone
