One vision, one purpose! A new version of The Second Tiberium War has been released recently by Ever_Valiant. For those who are not acquainted with it, The Second Tiberium War  is a modification for Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun that improves upon the atmosphere and gameplay to strive for the maximum potential of the game. Here are the updates from The Second Tiberium War 2.8 - Regenesis:


Update 2.8 - Regenesis Release!
(Mar 13, 2023)

Update 2.8 is here! You may now play the long-awaited campaign finale to the Second Tiberium War! It's been a long journey, and I hope you all enjoy the hard work I put into the project.

When I first began working on a redesigned campaign, I never thought I'd ever finish it. I created a layout in photoshop years ago of this huge campaign story with in-game cinematic missions and epic plot twists that told the story from both factions' perspectives. I then stood back and looked at it and said, "there's no way I'd ever be able to make this. What the heck am I thinking?", But I'm glad I stuck to it.

This project was started in May 2012 when I began tinkering with Tiberian Sun: Firestorm in Tibed. The first thing I did was add the Cabal tech structures to the game, and since then never stopped. I didn't even know how the add a new icon to the sidebar, let alone anything else. But with anything in life, if you keep at it and don't give up, you can achieve anything. I hope you enjoy the completed campaign, and if there are any issues or (I don't think that's supposed to happen) moments, please post it below, and I will address it as soon as possible.

So is this the end?..........


The Campaign finale is complete now, consisting of chapters 8 & 9. The final mission is also available and can be played by either faction. I’ve also remade cinematic 3 - Mystery Revealed to match the new content and have revamped a few earlier missions that needed it.

Campaign 17 - Atrocity

Campaign 18 - In the Dark

Campaign 19 - Regenesis

The Basilisk
A new addition to the Brotherhood’s arsenal is the Basilisk, a dedicated Anti-aircraft unit, and apc which is the new go-to unit to defend against air assaults.

  • Veteran Rank 1: Move Faster, Greater Sight, Regenerate Hitpoints
  • Veteran Rank 2: Defense Increased, New Weapon / Greater Firepower, (any unique bonus that unit receives)

Naval v1.4 has been released!
March 14, 2023 - 05:22
Greetings, commander! Newgate-ZH, the leader of Naval, has been busy recently in order to release Naval 1.4. For those who are not acquainted with it, Naval is a modification for Command & Conquer Generals: Zero Hour that brings a set of naval multiplayer maps and replaces all factions by the naval faction. Here are the updates from Naval 1.4:

This patch aims to improve Multiplayer gameplay and bring capital ships to the forefront of the fight.

I keep a rough log in the Map.ini of all the changes I make for each update. Here are the changes for Patch 1.4!

Patch 1.4 (The Capital Ship Update):
- Major Updates
Multiplayer / Skirmish Update: Players are given a Mobile Shipyard at the start of a match.
Rework Scrap: Salvage Corvettes collect large scrap by moving over them, sinks after a bit.
Rework Salvage Corvette: Removed the Scrap crunch weapon, added an other upgradable weapon.
Rework Harvester: Can now carry 2 infantry inside, can now rappel both Defenders and Seals.
Rework Battlecruiser: Removed the random ship with buff, added customisable upgrade system.
Rework Oil Depot: increased the cost to 3.2K, while allowing us to make as many as we want.
Flagship: Added into the files, is a big Battleship and hyperspace capability, one allowed.
Destroyer: Added into the files, is a small Battleship with Missile pods that you can swap.
Corvette Hangar: Added into the files, place that makes corvettes and dozers, uses 2 power.
Navy Heavy Bomber: Added into the files, Special Power bomber that drops one Heavy Torpedo.
Navy Probe: Added into the files, missile launched scout, crashes 2 minutes after deployed.
Special Powers: Added Heavy Torpedoes, Marine Frigate Drops, Probes and Camera Zoom button.
Camera Zoom Button: Zooms out to get an improved view of the battlefield on the open ocean.

- Balance Updates
Nerfed the Marine Frigate's Ion Cannon Turret damage, no longer as strong as an Ion Cannon,
buffed the health of the Guardian Control Center, buffed the Support Frigate repair radius,
removed that stupid "Dock" feature from Support Frigates that I added from the last update,
Slightly buffed Ion Cannon Tower range, Increased the price of Class Research quite hugely,
fixed a few little tiny bugs relating to performance and the playability of a couple units.
Slightly buffed the Salvage Corvette unupgraded Damage, made this text form a pretty block,
Probably a lot of little things that I adjusted but forgot to document so are lost to time.


Here are a couple of images of the new things

Hello ladies and gentlemen! G-E has recently packed his RA2 INI Scripts in one big G-E's RA2 INI Scripts Mega-Pack for March 2023. For those who are not acquainted with it, G-E's RA2 INI Scripts is a set of TCL scripts designed to validate several aspects of the .ini files from Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. It includes tools such as AICheck, AIClean, MapClean, SoundCheck, SoundClean, and MapKill. Here are the goodies that come with G-E's RA2 INI Scripts Mega-Pack for March 2023:

G-E's Combined RA2 ini scripts pack README

This pack contains:
- AICHECK 8.1f
- AICLEAN 5.8c

EACH SCRIPT WILL HAVE TO BE EDITED! That is, every *.tcl in the package must undergo at least some configuration to set the basic parameters, like the RA2 directory, to run with your installation, and crucially any mods. In some cases, additional .cfg files will need to be customized for purposes, such as the one that comes with AICLEAN, to get the best results.

NONE OF THE SCRIPTS READ THE MIX FILES! Every referenced ini file used by a script must be extracted for parsing first, then those filenames and locations need to be specified in the header of the script. In the case of RA2 and YR mod installations in parallel, each script can only be set to handle one at a time, not both. However, as each script has its own internal settings for filenames and paths, this means you can make copies of the script, with modified copies of the batch files pointing to them. In this way, you could have a set of scripts working with RA2, and a duplicate set working with YR in the same place. The scripts that have an external configuration file could share if there's no particular incompatibility with goals, but they can also be cloned.

Every script comes with one or more batch files to run them. The batch files will be specified in their own document section below. In a few cases

For most of the scripts to work, rules.ini, art.ini, and ai.ini (or YR equivalents) must be extracted from the ra2.mix/ra2md.mix, even if not modified for the particular mod being checked/cleaned. For SOUNDCHECK, sound.ini must also be present, but audio.idx should also be extracted for it to be more thorough, that file is located within the audio.mix, which is located within the language.mix, not ra2.mix.

NONE OF THE SCRIPTS CURRENTLY SUPPORT ARES #INCLUDE FUNCTION. Any included files with relevant code should be merged back into their parent files for proper parsing. As a rule, Ares features are not supported; there are no current plans to support include, nor the distributed nature of the lists it allows with un-denominated additions. A future version of AICLEAN might have the option to merge all the included files into the original file arrangement, but as of now, it doesn't support the feature either.

Ares and CNCNet clients are able to use custom ini and map filenames, and this practice is perfectly acceptable to all the included scripts since each filename is defined within the script header. As long as they use proper ASCII-safe filenames and paths, all the scripts should be able to access them as well. When using any of the helpful batch files for scripts that scan multiple maps in one go, such as for MAPCLEAN, simply update or make copies of the batch files, with the correct file mask for your client.

THE RESULT OF RUNNING EACH SCRIPT ISN'T WHAT IS SEEN ON SCREEN. What you see is merely a parsing indication. Basic errors or conversions are reported purely to get a sense of what they are doing and are by no means the important part, rather it is the log file created that matters. Although you configure each script to the file paths and ini filenames within the scripts, the resultant log output will be written where the script is located. For this reason, it is usually best to extract the scripts to the directory where the game/mod itself resides.

These scripts are the result of ongoing sporadic efforts and have evolved as RA2/YR modding itself has evolved. Any support for Ares, Phobos, Kratos, or anything similar is off the table, as each of them seems to be a moving target in terms of what's right or wrong. Plus I'm not sure how reasonable it is to break up the script into blocks
that only operate when specific extensions are available/active. It seems best to use Ares' own internal debugger function in such case, or at least to catch everything outside the scope of Westwood's programming.

Every script will require ActiveTCL's tclsh runtimes:

Each script has a dedicated notes section below, which should describe in more detail basic operation, as well as any usage that may not be listed within the script header out of a desire to keep the header concise, or is an odd use case that rarely comes up.
