Expansion Spider Pack for OTA... new version incoming!
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
Stay tuned guys ;)
New site section added
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
Zhon will be released soon, and
there're 3 more Tile-set projects almost at final stage, so
map-makers, get ready to rock! ;)
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
here for further info). I do post a couple of new rendered BPs. Be
Five Miles Out final ready for the download
Ready for some more of action
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

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.
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.
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...
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

Naval Air AI v2b

map. Required files to play this map: TA:Core

course..) from the Utilities Section

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.
