Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances Official FAQ #2

Recommended Posts

Another official game FAQ for Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances from http://forum.alliances.commandandconquer.com/showthread.php?tid=3163


Resources and Buildings


Q: How do I get resources?

A: You can get resources by building structures that generate resources, by doing battle, by completing missions, or by using supply packages. To get tiberium, build a harvester on a tiberium field (green). To get crystals, build a harvester on a crystal field (blue). To get power, build a power plant. To get credits, build a refinery. There is no building to generate research points.


Q: Which resources are available through combat?

A: You can obtain tiberium, crystals, credits and research points through combat. Power cannot be obtained through combat directly. (You could get a supply package containing power through combat, see below). The amount of resources you get through combat are scaled with the base level, destroying more difficult outposts, camps and bases awards more resources.


Q: Which resources are available using supply packages?

A: There are supply packages for tiberium, for crystal, for power and for credits. You can activate any package using the specified number of supply points (which regenerate over time). The resources are added to your currently selected base (except credits, which are shared across bases, see below). You can also click the "+" button adjacent to a resource as a shortcut to activate a supply package in your current base. Research points are not available through supply packages.


Q: How do I get Research points?

A: Research Points are gained through attacking Forgotten Camps/Outposts and Bases. The higher the enemy´s level, the higher the gain.


Q: Are resources shared between bases?

A: Tiberium and crystal are not shared between bases, but can be transferred between bases (at the cost of credits). Power is not shared between bases, and cannot be transferred. Credits and research are shared between bases, and can be used anywhere.


Q: How do I get supply packages?

A: Some Forgotten camps, outposts or bases contain a supply crate. You will receive the supply package by destroying the building marked with the supply crate icon in the base. The type of package you receive is random. Additionally, you can receive supply crates through missions, or by visiting the shop. To see the packages currently in your possession, use the "Inventory" button on the top menu bar.


Q: How can I use resources?

A: You can use tiberium to build structures in your base, as well as some defensive structures. You can use crystal to build units (both offensive and defensive). Power is required level up buildings and units. Credits can be used to transfer resources between bases, as well as unlock units and structures in conjunction with research points.


Q: What is a production bonus?

A: Some structures in your base can generate periodic batches of extra resources if they are placed adjacent to other buildings; these are called a production bonus.


Q: How do I get a production bonus?

A: To get a production bonus on a harvester, build an adjacent silo. To get a production bonus on a power plant, build an adjacent accumulator. To get a production bonus on a refinery, build an adjacent power plant.


Q: When do I get a production bonus?

A: If you have a building that qualifies for a production bonus (see above), that building will periodically generate a bonus package. The bonus amount depends on the level of the production building. The length of the period depends on the number and level of the adjacent support buildings. When a bonus package is available, you can see its yellow icon in your base. Simply clicking on the package collects the resources, which will be immediately added to your balance.


Q: What if I don't pick up bonus package

A: Every production building can generate up to two bonus packages. When two packages are ready, the building will stop producing bonus packages until you collect them.


Q: What is a production speed boost?

A: A production speed boost allows some production buildings to generate resources faster. This is separate from the bonus production system.


Q: How do I get a production speed boost?

A: You get a 25% speed boost for every crystal field adjacent to a power plant. You get a 25% speed boost for every tiberium field adjacent to a refinery. The maximum speed boost is 100% (thus, 4 fields). The field does not need to have a harvester on it to receive the production speed boost (but that is still allowed)




Q: I’ve forgotten my password, how do I change it

A: All the EA sites use the same login details, if you try using different details on different EA sites then conflicts can occur, the best way to change the password is to go to the central EA site at http://profile.ea.com and change it there. There should be a forgotten password link on the page if you have forgotten your old password that will allow you to specify your email address to be able to set up a new one.


You should then be able to login to any EA site with the email and password you have set up there. Occasionally it may not update for all the individual sites immediately in which case you should change the password on the individual site to match the one that you have set up at http://profile.ea.com




Q: How to purchase Funds

A: You may purchase EA Play4Free funds to increase game progress through the Play4Fee Fund Store. The Store is accessible through the Play4Free Navigation bar on top of the Official Tiberium Alliances Homepage, or by clicking the “Add Funds” button located in the left Sidebar to get forwarded to the EA Play4Free Fund Shop.

I guess we need to update this?


^ I was thinking about this the other day - TA on mobile.

I made a decision to stop playing this on my browser - but would be willing to play this on my phone. So I haven't been playing this for a looong time.
