[TI] Interview by CnCSaga.de
November 27, 2017 - 10:46


Hello everyone!

AnNo1935, webmaster of the German Command & Conquer fansite CnCSaga.de, recently gave Twisted Insurrection some limelight with an interview.
Be sure to check out the full interview for interesting bits on our history, C&C, the community, and the release of version 0.7 Wink

Here's a snippet of the interview:
Quote:
Please tell us something about your mod, how did it all start?

Crimsonum: Twisted Insurrection was founded by Aro all the way back in 2004/2005 as a set of custom missions for Red Alert 1. In 2007 he moved the project to the Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge engine. It didn't even take a full year before he again decided to switch engines, so in late 2007 the project moved to Tiberian Sun: Firestorm, where it has remained ever since. By that point the first team had formed, they developed many elements that are still integral to the game (such as GloboTech, the Thorn creature and the Interior theatre). While our team composition has changed a lot during the years, there are still a handful who've been aboard the project since day one.

It's amazing to think back and see how Twisted Insurrection has evolved from a tiny campaign to a small mod, and finally to a huge standalone game with unique assets, factions and story.

What makes this mod special?

Erastus: I think what makes this mod special is its premise, an alternate take on C&C history where Nod won the first game, not GDI, and all the implications that come with it. We also show progression from the Tiberian Dawn era into the Twisted Insurrection era as technology transitions over the course of the first act.

OS: HVA Builder 2.18 and OS: Voxel Viewer 1.84!
November 16, 2017 - 03:36


Hello everyone! Today we are releasing new versions of two tools at once, again. Both OS: HVA Builder and OS: Voxel Viewer were updated (just in time for my birthday... err on the US Pacific Time Zone... which does not reflects my location at all). Anyway, today's features are very interesting, since both programs can be used to simulate the results of TurretOffset and PrimaryFireFLH tags (and more). Actually, much more. OS: HVA Builder was the big star of the day again and OS: Voxel Viewer has been updated as a bonus.





The current version of Open Source HVA Builder allows you to do everything that Stucuk's 2.2 work in progress version allows, except for screenshoting the whole directory, which is something that, by design, I won't add to the HVA Builder (maybe I'll add it to the OS: Voxel Viewer). Show Grid, Show Section Center, changing Palette (ok, in Preferences), Fire FLH simulation... it's all in 2.18. The other design changes were the way sections are highlighted and that default remaps are still red (I won't change it to white, in respect to other OS tools).

Here's the Open Source: HVA Builder 2.18's change log:


2.18
revisions by Banshee

- Updated: Voxel Engine updated to 1.50.
- Updated: Highlight section behavior has been overhauled. First of all, it is no longer red. Instead, it makes all other sections transparent and it also shows bounds size as a distinguishable transparent box. This option is no longer enabled by default.
- Added: Draw Grid. You can now add a transparent grid to the scene that gives you a reference of size. It works like a ground and you can even customize it by replacing GridTile.png inside Textures/Ground/ with another png file. If you want your image to repeat indefinitely, you must add Tile at the end of its name (like in GridTile.png).
- Added: Draw Section Center. You can now add another 3 axis to the scene at the center of the selection section.
- Added: Tools -> Simulators -> Turret Offset. You can now simulate the result of the TurretOffset tag used in art.ini/artfs.ini/artmd.ini in your model by playing with this option.
- Added: Tools -> Simulators -> Fire FLH Simulation and Draw FLH Bullet. You can now simulate the result of the PrimaryFireFLH, SecondaryFireFLH and other related tags used in art.ini/artfs.ini/artmd.ini in your model by playing with this option. Note that, at this moment, this tool may not work correctly with multi-sectioned bodies, like Mammoth Mark II.
- Bug Fix: Back face culling now works only in the voxel models. We’ve also fixed some lighting issues with Draw Center Lines/Draw Section Center.
- Bug Fix: Voxel Rendering engine has received several bug fixes.







Open Source: Voxel Viewer 1.84 has received a Fire FLH coordinates simulation as well and all rendering fixes from OS: HVA Builder 2.18. I think that the screenshot above says all. Here's the change log:


1.84
revisions by Banshee:

- Updated: Voxel Engine updated to 1.50.
- Added: Fire FLH Coordinates and Draw Fire FLH Bullet. You can now simulate the result of the PrimaryFireFLH, SecondaryFireFLH and other related tags used in art.ini/artfs.ini/artmd.ini in your model by playing with this option. Note that, at this moment, this tool may not work correctly with multi-sectioned bodies, like Mammoth Mark II.
- Fixed: Turret Offset is now reliable and it has been shorten to a single axis.
- Fixed: Back face culling now works only in the voxel models. We’ve also fixed some lighting issues with Draw Center Lines/Draw Section Center.
- Fixed: Voxel Rendering engine has received several bug fixes.




You can download OS: HVA Builder 2.18 and OS Voxel Viewer 1.84 here or at the left menu of this site. If you run a website, feel free to also mirror these tools there. Enjoy it!

Open Source HVA Builder 2.14 has been released!
November 08, 2017 - 06:32


Howdy! We have more news today and this is a good one! Two new updated programs at once. The big deal is with the newest version of Open Source HVA Builder 2.14, although Open Source Voxel Viewer 1.83 also goes as a bonus.




Ok, I know some of you might be aware that we are not talking about a state of the art version of the HVA Builder, since stucuk was working on a 2.2 work in progress version. Unfortunately, he did not distribute the source code of his version yet, so I couldn't use it. From the features of his version, 2.14 only fixes the View Transform. But it comes with its own modest set of features as well. Here's the change log:


2.14
revisions by Banshee:

- Updated: Voxel Engine updated to 1.40.
- Added: You can now cap the rendering speed of the program up to 60 fps. It prevents it from unnecessarily burn your gpu and battery. FPS cap is enabled by default, but you can disable it in the Preferences -> Rendering Options.
- Added: You can change the palette in the Preferences -> Palette Options, using palettes from the TS and RA2 directories. The game is also determined by you, by choosing it near the Preferences in the menu.
- Bug Fix: View Transform now works correctly.
- Bug Fix: If you've downloaded the 2.13, the rendered voxel always update when you change something on the interface or on the voxel itself.
- Bug Fix: Additional memory leaks were fixed with screenshots, voxel sections and voxel views.
- Bug Fix: 360 degree animation no longer has blank frames.
- Bug Fix: A minor issue with 360 degree animation rotation has been fixed. The rotation starts after the first frame.
- Note: Despite versions 2.13 and 2.14 were coded from 2.1 the code (instead of 2.12), all features from 2.11 and 2.12 are valid for 2.14. This version does not have the features from 2.2 WIP 1 from stucuk, since its source code has never gone public.



This version also marks the first OS: HVA Builder that is in our SVN, together with OS: Voxel Viewer and Voxel Section Editor III at the same repository.

Since OS: HVA Builder shares the same Voxel Engine with OS: Voxel Viewer, we also have a quick update on the OS: Voxel Viewer itself. But, truth to be told, I don't think anyone will see any difference in this version. Except for the updated help file.

Anyway, here's OS: Voxel Viewer 1.83's change log as well:


1.83
revisions by Banshee:

- Fixed: Rotation does not move in the first frame of a 360 degree animation.
- Improved: Updated with Voxel Engine 1.40. It eliminates a couple of memory leaks.



And now, you no longer need to apply quick patches for the OS: HVA Builder. You can grab 2.14 in a single package. OS Voxel Viewer 1.83 can be downloaded here. If you run a website, feel free to also mirror these tools there. Enjoy it!
