Greetings, commander! W3D Hub, the developers of Tiberian Sun: Reborn, has published their bugpocalypse patch known as Tiberian Sun: Reborn 22.214.171.124 a while ago. For your information, Tiberian Sun: Reborn is a first-person shooter game that uses Command & Conquer Renegade engine, and it recreates the Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun universe as FPS. The changes from Tiberian Sun: Reborn 126.96.36.199 were announced with the following words: Quote: We've just released Tiberian Sun: Reborn version 188.8.131.52! Our focus on this release was to fix bugs and improve the overall balance of the game. The notes below should cover all of the changes we've made in the past couple of weeks. We'd also just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has picked up the game and joined battles on the server. It's really nice to see that Reborn still has the power to inspire and excite people even after all of these years, so thank you for putting big smiles on our faces. General New objective marker system for detecting units with the Mobile Sensor Array. This fixes a bug with the HUD related to being in the range of an enemy MSA Players no longer have their inputs stuck when their deployed vehicle is destroyed while transitioning Adjusted key mappings to assign default hotkeys to the extended options hotkeys list for clean installations. This may result in some keybind popup spam on the first game join, but it has been shown in testing to work Color-coded the HUD health bar to green, yellow, and red Fixed server instabilities Score System The building score system has been overhauled such that damage/repairs are based on a percentage of the building’s maximum HP: 37.5% for damage, 25% for repair, 25% for bounty, 10% for defense bounty This varies for small structures Large critical structures give 250 points to the team, non-critical large structures give 300 points to the team, and an additional amount is awarded to the team multiplied 250 by the player count Radar Compass Ghost Stalker/Cyborg Commando blips have been changed (set to exclamation marks) Mammoth Mk II blip has been changed (set to target) Blips get smaller if they are above/below you Maps Fixed a good number of stuck spots, terrain holes, floating objects, misaligned objects, visible objects that should be invisible, and other small, general map issues Reinforcement harvesters have generally had pathfinding improvements across the board, including fixes in a lot of cases where they were dropped by the Carryall and drove nowhere Adjusted the transparency of water on several maps to make it more consistent Adjusted the drown zone height on several maps to make it more consistent where you start drowning (and you can’t walk as deeply into the water), also added drown zone on any maps where it was missing TS_Anchorage Added basic underwater terrain Moved a GDI aircraft spawner away from the Refinery to a spot between the Construction Yard and War Factory TS_Cliffs Fixed improperly placed no-dig zone in the GDI base and extended its coverage to the Nod base Adjusted lighting TS_Dam Adjusted a bit of the vehicle-blocking clutter in the bases Fixed a bug allowing AAPC and MLRS to drive into the deep water Made slight adjustments to the ramps leading to the upper infantry routes Adjusted the out-of-bounds zone so it doesn't affect infantry up top where it shouldn't TS_Drought Bases got internally flipped with Power Plants on the inside loop Cut a path through the Tiberium Field Silos changed to blue TS_Field Added no-dig zone to the Nod base Filled in a no-dig zone gap at the back of the GDI base TS_GrandCanyon Added two Sam Sites to Nod interior walls Cleaned up map issues TS_Isles Fixed missing ability for MLRS and AAPC to drive on top of the water Mobile Repair Vehicles no longer spawn stuck in the Nod War Factory Expanded the no-dig zone behind the GDI base Adjusted Laser Turret displacement (removed coastal turret) Adjusted Sam Site displacement (rear War Factory Sam is now on the roof) Added civilian buildings Added GDI corner walls where applicable Minor adjustments to aircraft landing points TS_OmegaCity Fixed erroneous out-of-bounds warning in the Hand of Nod basement Fixed Nod outpost repair section, including removing the stuck MRV Removed one rear Nod SAM site and adjusted the others Adjusted water zone so players can’t travel so deep without taking damage Silos changed to blue TS_Snow Added a Tiberium Silo for each team TS_TaintedLegacy Added an underwater zone to the lake TS_Tiber Removed phantom GDI/Nod Construction Yards Balance Changes We've made a ton of changes to the game based on your feedback in the Discord Feedback Hub. Please keep the feedback coming, as it's really valuable for us to know how you're all perceiving the game. Thanks to everyone who has spent time to give feedback so far! The main aim of the changes in this release was to re-center the balance of vehicles, as the general consensus was that they were a bit weak. Upon investigation, we discovered that our benchmark engagement (a Titan vs. a Tick tank) was around 13 seconds, which was way too short for what the game really required. With that in mind, we've done some work to strengthen vehicles vs. anti-tank weapons to draw those engagements out a bit more. Below is a full list of balance changes. If you have any feedback on the way these numbers are presented, please let us know! Global Armour Types & Warhead Changes Every building, infantry, and vehicle in TSR has an armor type. Every projectile and explosion has a warhead type. When calculating damage, a projectile’s warhead will have a multiplier that corresponds to an armor type in order to determine how much damage is dealt. For example, my Titan’s cannon does 90 damage and has the Warhead “Tank Shell”. I am shooting an undeployed Tick Tank which has the armor type “Armoured Vehicle”. “Tank Shell” has a 0.65 damage multiplier when shooting at “Armoured Vehicle”, so the total damage dealt to the Tick Tank per shot is 58.5. The changes below have been made to the Armour & Warhead table to enact larger changes throughout the entire game. Jumpjet Infantry Reduced incoming damage from Rocket, Tank Shell, Plasma, and Railgun Weapons Mutants Reduced incoming damage from Railgun Weapons Cyborgs Reduced incoming damage from Rocket and Plasma Weapons Enforcer Reduced incoming damage from Rocket Weapons Light Vehicle Light Vehicles have been made a bit tougher to increase their survivability Reduced incoming damage from Bullets, AP Bullets, Rockets, Grenades, Tanks Shells, Artillery Shells, and Sonic weapons Armoured Vehicle Armoured Vehicles have been made a bit tougher to increase their survivability Reduced incoming damage from Bullets, AP Bullets, Rockets, Grenades, Tanks Shells, Artillery Shells, and Sonic weapons Deployed Vehicle Reduced incoming damage from Tank Shell Weapons Aircraft Aircraft have been made a bit tougher to match the buffs that other vehicle types have received. Reduced incoming damage from Bullets, AP Bullets, Missiles, Rockets, Grenades, Tanks Shells, Artillery Shells, Plasma, Railgun and Sonic weapons Cyborg Reaper Reduced incoming damage from Grenades, Tanks Shells, Artillery Shells, Sonic and Melee weapons Buildings: Reduced incoming damage from Rocket, Tank Shell, and Sonic weapons Base Defences Reduced incoming damage from Rocket and Tank Shell weapons Base Walls Increased incoming damage from Grenade and Grinder weapons Buildings Building doors now open and close properly after the building is destroyed (same behavior as when the building remains alive) Repair rates increased for the Service Depots and Helipads Air units can now be sold at Helipads Construction Yard (both teams) Fixed a flame emitter that floated perpetually in the air when the building was destroyed GDI Helipad Minor fixes and improvements to the mesh, including enabling the pad lights Nod Tiberium Silo Points/credits are now earned from damaging and repairing this building Defenses Now detect stealth up to half their weapon range Nod Laser Turret Reduced weapon spread: 0.3 -> 0.15 Infantry All infantry now slowly auto-heal to 50% health whenever undamaged for 30 seconds All infantry are blocked from refilling at a PT within 5 seconds of taking damage Buffed purchasable frag grenades: Damage strength: 35 -> 40 Explosion Radius: 4 -> 6 Explosion Inner Radius: 2 -> 3 Proxy mines no longer stick to friendly units Proxy mine health greatly reduced: 100 -> 45 Timed C4 is now grouped under the pistol for Engineers GDI Officer Rate of fire increased: 20 -> 30 Removed spray angle increase on movement GDI Missile Trooper Weapon right click has been changed from scoping to “dumbfire” (missiles with no tracking) GDI Riot Trooper Pistol/Shield is now centered in first-person view Shotgun adjustments Slug damage reduced: 110 -> 60 Slug spray increased: 0.2 -> 0.4 Slug projectile extension XYZ reduced: 0.1 -> 0.05 Slug ammo cost reduced: 2 -> 1 Inner spray angle % added: 0.5 Shifted 2 pellets to inner radius GDI Medic No longer heals enemies Self-healing to 50% is twice as fast (compared to other infantry) and requires half the time to activate GDI Jumpjet Can now drive vehicles Improved aerodynamics Increased projectile extension: 0 -> 0.1 GDI Enforcer Weapon damage increased: 4.5 -> 5.5 Weapon velocity increased: 75 -> 115 Weapon can now travel through a max of 6 targets Nod Elite Cadre Buffed Sting grenade: Explosion Radius: 2.5 -> 3.

Renegade NewsBack to Renegade
Command & Conquer Renegade turns 21 on the 27th of February, so to celebrate, we're holding a small event to celebrate! Across this weekend, we'll have a special anniversary server up to play some games and celebrate the game that allowed us to experience C&C up close and personal for the first time!
I am pleased to announce that a 4.x client has been created for ECW. Players can now connect to the ECW server with a more modern engine that outperforms the original in many ways. Read more here!
Kane000 has been going crazy recently with lots of development updates! Today we’re showing off WIP of both the Allied and Soviet Signal Flares. These items have needed an update for many years, so he decided to knock this out very quickly. We'll hopefully bring this to you in a future update coming soon!
Command & Conquer Renegade is turning 19 years old on Saturday the 27th of February and the community is planning a week of game night events to celebrate! Read more here!
Hi everyone! As part of the celebrations for Renegade's 19th Birthday, the W3D Hub team will be doing a Q&A session on Discord, Twitch and YouTube sometime next week. (Keep an eye out for the date). We want to know what questions you have for the team here at W3D Hub! This could be anything from what our future plans are to what we had for lunch, so please feel free to be creative with your questions! We will be curating the questions a bit however, so if your question is a bit on the controversial side, it may not get answered! Fair warning to you! Head to the question form here to submit your questions!
Hi everyone! Just a quick note for all of you W3D Hub Launcher users to say that we've gone ahead and hidden any games that have not been released yet (unless you have access to them as a Tester or Staff member), so games like Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising, Battle for Dune: War of Assassins and Tiberian Dawn: Ground Zero won't fully show up on the launcher until they are released. This change should make it easier for everyone to figure out what games are currently available to play. Just to be clear, the games have not been cancelled. This is just a measure to make it more obvious what everyone has access to play. If you guys have any feedback please leave a comment. Cheers!
Hello everyone and Merry Christmas! Hope that you all had a great day, its been a while since our last update but its time for some Dune game news! Map Changes and Comparisons TeamWolf and the BFD team have been busy updating The Hagga Gulch and Tsimpo Village maps. Here are comparison shots of what they looked like before and where we're taking them! Hagga Gulch Starting with our Hagga Gulch map, notice the changes we made in the textures for the terrain compared to the old ones. Before: After: As you may have noticed we have added new cliff pieces. We have also added additional tunnels with more capture points. Tsimpo Village Tsimpo Village has been completely redesigned, we've also updated the textures, cliffs and ruined houses! Before: After: Also notice that we added extra cliffs covering the paths from the spawn zones, this is to prevent spawn killing. For The Duke! House Atreides will prevail for the Duke! That's it for the update, we hope you enjoyed the new updates on our maps!

The server will also have 10x payouts for jobs Christmas day (being the 25th CST).[/blurb] Bug Fixes/Improvements: Updated the credits file (It was missing some creators of 3D models). Fixed some typos Defaulted the Nuclear Power Plant dazzle setting to 0 for max client performance. Fix for the infinite ammo/money glitch when players had tons of money in the bank and bought a weapon with cheap ammo. Added some more animal animations. Tornados now ignore players that are in spawn mode. Merry Christmas and happy New Year!
