Hi, read the readme but still have few questions. I hope this is the right place to ask. All I want the game for is to play with the map editor and make maps lol. And play them in skirmishes I suppose (single player). Just nostalgic...making maps in skirmishes (without a map editor) was painfully slow when I was younger, but I just loved making bases in this game for some reason. Other C&C games don't do it for me.

 

Anyway, couple questions...

 

1) Which download link should I use for this? I have the game at home but I won't be back til christmas. I'm guessing the multiplayer only link wouldn't do it for me.

 

2) Anything special I need to do to play this for windows 8.1?

 

3) Anyone have a download link to a good map editor for this game?

 

4) Any mods I need/are recommended?

1. If you just want skirmish and online play, Olaf's multiplayer version works fine. http://www.xwis.net/d

 

2. Yes. Try this http://xwis.net/forums/index.php/topic/178725-windows-8-tiberian-sun-working-with-it-so-far/ Still no luck? post in the support forum

 

3. Google FinalSun editor

 

4. I dont think anyone here uses mods.

Yes its recommended for online play.

 

Nope no firestorm. For Full TS with videos, musics, missions and FS expansion. Try here:

Ok, thanks. Installed the full version.

 

Is there a tutorial/guide for how to use finalsun? Been having a hard time the last couple of tries getting the hang of it.

 

Also I dled something called TS massive map mack, but the only files in it are "expand33.mix" and "missions33.pkt". Half the reason I dled them was to play around with some good maps in finalsun. But the only files finalsun has found are final sun missions "fsgdi01.map", "fsnod01.map" etc. I can't even find the skirmish maps thats come with it. So then I tried playing a skirmish map and saving. But that still doesn't save as a .map file I think. How can I access these maps?

GO here^^. you need to xtract the mix files using XCC tools. then you can edit each map individually. There is plenty of tools to play around with.

 

For map makin help go to help in FinalSun, there is a manual which has some tutorials on different things for map editing.

Damn. I have a lot of work ahead of me. Any tips for beginners in the meantime, or common mistakes I'll be making?

 

One thing I didn't find in the help tab was about how to let a player have more buildings/units to build.

Hey,

 

I'm tryin to edit couple of maps for TS. Found out few other resources for editing from a bud.

 1. TibEd

http://www.tibed.net/downloads

this will help with units/buildings. I dont know much but you can try.

 

2. sunedit2k

http://www.angelfire.com/wizard/animationmasters/

 

Havent really used them yet but from wht i heard they are easier then Finalsun. 

 

Why not just play the game online? majority plays mod maps.
