This modification is dedicated to bring back some essential things and features from previous cnc games (especially from CnC Tiberian sun) which many CnC fans (like me) missing in vanilla CNC3 (things like classic tiberium model, blood and gore from infantry, burned infantry, tiberian sun units and more.) But it´s not only that, there are many minor visual, sound or balance changes which I want in my mod.

Unzip folder "TiberiumEssence" to  "Documents and Settings*YOURNAME*DokumentsCommand & Conquer 3 Tiberium Warsmods"

Run mod:
Open Autorun and in Game Browser menu switch to mods, select TiberiumEssence  and then click Launch Game

Simply delete folder TiberiumEssence 

Known issues:
Saved files from original Tiberian wars is not compatible with this mod and cause game crash, it is due many changes in weapons and units. Both skirmish and campaign maps must be started from begin. For campaign it means start campaign from begin or go to campaign load menu and chose auto save from top menu and then chose any map from theatre you want to play. If you do save game with this mod it can be loaded normally, but of course it works only with this mod.
My changes on commando units do not work in campaign maps where you have this unit from begin. My guess is that it is different unit than that buildable on barracks. Their xml file is probably part of that map and cannot be edited. 

This mod contains sounds taken from previous cnc games and modified textures from CNC3 Tiberian wars, but EA support modding their games so it should be legal. Everything else in this mod is done by myself.

For modders:
You can use anything from my mod, but only if you give me credits for that. I want clear this here, so you don't need to send me e-mails with request for that.   

Word from Author:
After halve year work I'm finally pleased with my mod enough to release it, though it is still only beta and maybe is not everything balanced for skirmish, so I appreciate any suggestions and comments.
Big part of this mod is new/old units from tiberian sun which I (and many others) really miss, like Mammoth MkII, Titan, Hover Mlrs, Nod Cyborg, Reaper and my own version of subterranean APC. All models is done by myself in last 3 months, but I must admit that I'm beginner in 3ds max (well I started just 4 moths ago:)) so they are not perfect, but I hope you will not be disappointed. (I'm quite pleased with my work, but I believe some more experienced modelers can notice few flaws here and there;)). Finally I want apologise for any blunders in my English, it is not my national language (I'm from Czech republic). 

So enjoy and have fun.

Mammoth Mark II - yes, this good old mech is back better than ever. Rumor is that gdi realized, in face of nod avatars crawling on battlefield that 
                  it was a terrible mistake discontinued this project and quickly restore its production. However, it is still very expensive and 
                  time consuming vehicle so their presence on battlefield will be still rare. Anyway even one Mammoth Mark II on battlefield is good 
                  news for any GDI commander.
