  1. Hi everyone, We just wanted to take this opportunity to give a quick update on Reborn as it stands. Reborn Shelved for Now You may have noticed that we've put the news forums and the Discord channel for the game back up. When the whole situation happened a few weeks back, we made the hasty decision of taking these bits and pieces down. This was the wrong move to make on our part, as it raised questions from fans as to whether Reborn had been cancelled. Reborn hasn't been cancelled, but under the current circumstances the game has been delayed indefinitely. The dedicated team that was working on the project currently has no motivation or desire to push it any further whilst the situation persists and has pretty much disbanded for now. Also, in light of the situation we will not be putting the current public version of Reborn back on the launcher for now. This may change if the situation changes though. That being said though, there is a silver lining to all this. We've started redistributing our people and resources to our other projects such as Battle For Dune: War of Assassins and Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising, with the aim to use the developments to the engine that we made during Reborn's development and apply them to these projects instead. Ultimately what this means is that you guys will get BFD and AR quicker than you were going to get them before (when we were working on Reborn) and a lot of the engine developments going into those games will probably get passed back to Reborn in the future; but unfortunately it'll be a while before you guys get your hands on Reborn 2.0. Tiberian Genesis Awakens On the upside, there are a couple of projects that are still carrying the Tiberian Sun shooter torch in the meantime. Our long-time friend @Sentry has recently relaunched Tiberian Sun Genesis, which is a total conversion mod for ARMA3 with a mix of RTS and FPS game mechanics. More info will be coming soon, but In the meantime, here are a couple of screenshots: Support Sentry over on the Tiberian Genesis Discord server here: https://discord.gg/76RgTt The Firestorm Begins If you're looking for your Tiberian Sun FPS fix sooner than that though, you won't have to wait too long, since our friends over at Renegade X has just announced their Tiberian Sun-themed expansion, "Renegade X: Firestorm"! This is actually a bit of a blessing in disguise, because we were aiming to get Reborn out in the autumn; so you guys will still get a free Tiberian Sun-based FPS to play this year. Here's a link to the trailer, keep posted this autumn for more details! Support the Renegade X team over on their Discord server here: https://discord.com/invite/renegadex Thanks for ReadingThanks for reading and understanding everyone. If you have any questions feel free to ask, but please keep the discussion civil. We're all looking forward to the APB event tomorrow, so if you haven't signed up for that, make sure you do! Cheers! [blurb]Just a quick update on Reborn and what we're doing moving forward.[/blurb]

  5. Thanks a lot man! We're operating using Discord communities primarily, although this site was never designed to house it's own forums. The idea is that instead of creating new forums, users get linked to the communities that already cover these games. So for example, any game from TD, to RA2 is covered by CnCNet, W3D Hub covers Renegade and Cn&C Online covers Generals and beyond. Next on our plan is to create a community directory that is filterable by games. This way players can find the content that they want in the communities that serve the games.
  6. Hey everyone, A while back I noticed something in the C&C Community. A lot of people were asking how to play the games on Windows 10, but there wasn't an easily discoverable community resource in existence that made the games readily accessible. There were community resources around, but they were either fractured, or buried in websites or forums out of reach. So I got together with some friends from other communities. CCHyper from the Assembly Armada, neogrant from CnCNet, Tore from CnC-Comm, Chronostorm from Facebook/CnCMinecraft and No Strings Prd from YouTube. Together we hatched a plan to create a new community website that was easy to find, featured comprehensive guides on how to get the games working, news coverage from across the community and an emphasis on promoting modding and video content. Basically taking the core pillars of the C&C Community and lining them up in one easily navigable location. I'm proud to announce that today, the day of the Remastered Collection's release, we are able to share our first iteration of the site with you all. Head over to http://cnc.community to check out the site! Please let us know what you think of this project and how we can improve it moving forwards. We're trying our best to serve the community with a central point that links out to multiple resources, so moving forward here are a few things that we will be adding: Community Directory with a list of Communities and what they focus on YouTube Support for Content Creators Support for Mods so the platform can be used to promote modding content Live player numbers Ultimately though, I hope you enjoy this site as much as we've enjoyed making it. This community is a fun place to be and I wouldn't have it any other way. Cheers! [blurb]The C&C Community Project has launched! But what is it exactly?[/blurb]

  10. Locking this topic now.
  11. Hi everyone, So you may notice that Tiberian Sun Reborn has been removed from the Launcher and the forums. We believe that you are all owed an explanation. It was brought to our attention this week that Wallywood has a document that claims legal ownership over some of the assets that have been featured within Tiberian Sun: Reborn. The intention of this document was to defend against Bluehell Production's claim over the project when we split away and formed W3D Hub, but after an internal dispute with an existing staff member, the existence of this document was brought into the conversation. After this fact came to light, our team viewed this as quite a significant breach of trust, so with that in mind, we could not justify continuing work with him. Wallywood's trust in W3D Hub had also been eroded over the years due a number of mis-handled internal disputes, so the line in the sand was respectfully drawn. With our position made clear, Wally produced some terms which set out his position on the matter, however these terms did not include any annulment or relinquishment of legal ownership. After some negotiation, we respectfully disagreed to these terms, because at W3D Hub we believe that assets should never be legally owned by anybody and the whole notion of ownership sits at odds with the core ideology of modding. We make these games for free in our spare time for our love of Command & Conquer. We're not a business and we don't make money from our projects directly. Wallywood's statement on the matter is as follows: Until we receive a manifest of all of the assets that we cannot use (and consequently remove them), TSR will be placed on indefinite hold and has also been removed from the launcher until we can sort out the assets in question. We hope you all understand our decision and respect Wallywood's wishes. - The W3D Hub Staff Team [blurb]Tiberian Sun: Reborn has been removed for the launcher, let's find out why.[/blurb][thumb]thumb_tsr.7.png[/thumb]

    Mobile EMP

    Looking good man. It'll be interesting to see what kind of VFX you stick on it for the special abilities.
  13. We took a look and decided to push this back a week in order to get more people involved and also prevent clashes with MPF's memorial event which is also going on this weekend. More details coming soon!
