  Expansion Spider Pack for OTA... new version incoming!

Jump to TA-Power's forum!Posted by Silencer, 10-27-2002

  I'm currently working on the final version of the Arm Expansion Spider Pack for the Original TA (OTA). As many of you already know, I do play TA ÜberHack only, but as I promised, I'm about to release (during this week) a high quality version for you OTAers. I'm enjoying a lot adding many new features, as well as play-testing the new version my self. Obviously, the new version will include the new couple of spiders I made as well as lots of adjustments to give you the best of the best for your TA battles.

  Stay tuned guys ;)

  New site section added

Jump to TA-Power's forum!Posted by Silencer, 10-21-2002

  A new shinning Tilesets Section has been added by public demand. 

  As the its label indicates, it includes all of our effort in the making of Tile-sets for the TA community. There are 3 of the total of 5 final products from the TA:K to TA Tile-sets Conversion Project, as well as the Green Expansion Tile-sets

  Zhon will be released soon, and there're 3 more Tile-set projects almost at final stage, so map-makers, get ready to rock! ;)

  More things..

Jump to TA-Power's forum!Posted by Silencer, 10-03-2002

  First of all, I've to warn you about something important: Seems to be that there's a retrograde around ( who is maliciously using my nick and/or E adress ) sending E-mail to many TA fans. If you receive an E-mail with topic like ' By Silencer for TA-Power ' or similar, then immediately delete it; given that it contains virus inside. Sad to see how these things happen on the Internet, but life is this way; there is productive people and also sterile people around. I recall you that you may download from this site all of the TA-Power's stuff made until today; is the safe way to get our TA creations. 

  More things.. I've updated the Elite Packs (EP) section. Now the section  shows bigger Spider Pack's unit pictures, as well as better info about the Arm Expansion Pack. Also, the installation steps have been simplified and better explained. Talking about this matter, I do plan to pack a new build of the SP for the ÜberHack TA mod v3.1.9. I'll do that as soon as BSR upload the new ÜH 3.1.9b2 to his site. And to those who has not seen what the ÜH can do for your TA games, or simply what the ÜH is then click here NAW! ;) . It is worth to know more about it.

  I've been also working (very little though due my lack of free time; arf...) on the new Emergency Units Pack version (click here for further info). I do post a couple of new rendered BPs. Be right back..

The new Core KrogTaar build picture      The new Arm Rapid Fire Medium Range Plasma Cannon BP. What a mouthful, huh? ;P

  Five Miles Out final ready for the download

Jump to TA-Power's forum!Posted by ChinaHook, 09-23-2002

  Ready for some more of action then?..

  The advance of enemy army becomes more patent as time goes on. When the Evad River Mouth was taken, the enemy army went up the river to the confluence of one of its affluent. Now, while a division of this army continues to the affluent, another one has come to the outskirts of the city in which your base is placed. The enemy base is located on the other side of the river, five miles out, and they are reclaiming the metal and resources of older Core bases to improve their effectives. The assault to the city is imminent and only a matter of time...

  A couple of map screen shots can be seen here and here.

  TA Core Contingency and TA-Power_Fixed_anims2.hpi needed to play the map

  TA-Power_Fixed_anims2.hpi is supplied with the map. This is another Green world map (one of my favorites!) in which I have included new tiles (Green-Metal transitions, new ravines, new rivers, Etc.) which will be supplied in the #2 release of Green Completion series. More info into the Readme.txt provided in the zipped map file. Enjoy!!

  Spider Pack project closed. Latest version for ÜH.

Jump to TA-Power's forum!Posted by Silencer, 08-23-2002

  This is hopefully the final version of the Spider Pack for ÜH. If it needs to be updated to be fully ÜH compatible then I'll put my fingers on it again though. My Expansion Pack for Arm has reached the planned quality, even more, thanks to the good feedback from many smart TA players around, it has exceeded my initial expectation.

  This is the link to download the latest version. This one include several tweaks. Read the doc files for further info about these. Also. I've named the file this time as TA-Power-SpiderPack-v5e-UH-Final-Plus. Check your version to see if you're current or not. The OTA version will be available soon. It is being time to work on an Expansion Pack for Core, don't you agree on that?

  Have fun!.. and behave.

  Polishing the site...

Jump to TA-Power's forum!Posted by Silencer, 08-19-2002

  Back again; I'm gradually updating TA-Power's sections. Also, I'll pack a new version of the Spider Pack for ÜH. It is the last time that I call final version to any of our products, do that and get ready to see bugs and gremlins popping out heheh... This version will include some few minor tweaks and probably even a new unit. Once this version will be completely done then I'll prepare the hopefully final OTA version. By the way, seems to be that many TAers do not have many of the extra-maps released by Cavedog. I recall you, if you're one of these, that all of those official maps are available for the download here. Have a look to see if you are or you're not current. Said that, stay tuned.

  New map and AI profile 

Jump to TA-Power's forum!Posted by Silencer, 08-09-2002

  Here you got a couple of TA creations made by Joshcomm1:

  After a hiatus from the TA Community, Joshcomm1 comes back out to give you more gifts from a labor of love of Total Annihilation

  Mad Response_v1
has 4 levels of play: Easy, Medium, Hard & Network 1, each with their own AI and Start Positions. Do have your initial settings for computer / human metal and energy set for 1000 only on all levels, both Skirmish Mode and Online.

  Depending on what difficulty mode you set up for your game, the map will run different AI profiles. Play Hard or Network 1 to try the NavalAirAI_v2b AI.

Download Mad Response v1
Download Naval Air AI v2b   Newly crafted for a balanced war game on mainly metal / water based battle maps. This one was designed for the newest battle map Mad Response_v1. You are going to enjoy this one. It fights hard. It can be used on any water based battle map with good resources, but the effects show up more distinctly on the metal ones.

  Naval Air AI_v2b was created specifically for this battle map. Required files to play this map: TA:Core Contingency, Creon Features Files and the TA:K Features for TA

  You can get these files (TA:CC aside course..) from the Utilities Section at TAMEC. If you got any questions or comments about these releases then use our forum. Enjoy!

  I've updated the online information about the Spider Pack. You may read it here

  Also, I have tossed out unit concepts based on mounting structures on  six-legged chasis. So no Energy Storage Spider; I prefer to waste unit IDs on other unit innovations.
