TA Design Group merges with TA House -
Monday 02/14/2005

Since TA House's death, I have persuaded them to hand over their material to be hosted at T.A.D.G. so they will no longer be using up TAU's server space. You can find all of their units in maps in our units and maps sections. Production on the KIN has slowed down a bit but it should start up again soon...

KIN unit update and preview -
Monday 1/31/2004

Here are 3DO Builder shots of the level 1 units completed so far. Just some early previews to let you know what's going on. If you can't read the writing then in the left top row is the Assault Tank, under that is the Medium Assault Tank, on the bottom left is the Construction Vehicle. The middle top row is the Construction bot and the middle bottom is the Rocket Bot (Deactivated of course.) The right top row is the Assault Bot and the bottom right is the Construction Ship.

Final poll -
Friday 1/07/2004

I just wanted everyone to know that I have narrowed the name down to two options, the KIN and the Tronans but am leaning very heavily on KIN. One reason being it looks very good next to ARM and CORE since it is only three letters long. I have reset the poll options to only include the two and the length of the poll is still just over a week, make sure to vote.

What should I name my new race?


Update -
Sunday 1/02/2004

I have an update for you all, I have finished 4 resource buildings and I have not posted the pics but you can see them here. Also make sure to vote in the poll I have for the naming of my new race, and I encourage you to post in the forums and tell me what you think, I will make up my mind and close the poll in one to two weeks and let you know.

New project underway - Monday 12/27/2004

I just wanted to let you all know that I am going to begin designing my own 3rd party race to counter the Arm and Core scum, that is what I have been working on lately. For all the info and some pics you can visit my race thread here, so go ahead, post about it and give me your ideas or whatever. If you are too lazy to view the thread, here is a preview pic of the almost finished Commander in 3DO Builder:
