Total Annihilation (abbreviated Totala or TA) is a real-time strategy video game created by Cavedog Entertainment and released on September 30, 1997 by GT Interactive for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS. It was the first RTS game to feature 3D units and terrain. Two expansion packs were released, The Core Contingency on April 30, 1998 and Battle Tactics on June 30, 1998.
Total Annihilation is no longer supported, due to the closure of Cavedog. With Gas Powered Games, lead designer Chris Taylor went on to create Supreme Commander, popularly considered the "spiritual successor" of Total Annihilation. A remake of Total Annihilation named Spring, with a completely 3D graphics engine and lacking any fixed camera angle, has also been independently produced.
Total Annihilation is set in the far future in the midst of a galactic war, with battles taking place on the surface of planets and moons. The efforts of the player are centered around constructing a defensive base and an offensive force, and conquering opponents. The player is also concerned with gathering resources, reconnaissance and stealth, and evaluation of units and terrain. Battles take place against AI in a story-driven campaign, with the option of playing against other players in a skirmish mode.
Total Annihilation Intro (brighter)

This game is the first RTS I ever played, and is an instant classic for everyone that has ever tried it.
It was to my suprised when I found out that someone had remade this epic game in a free mod engine named "Spring" (Highlighted in the Wikipedia quote).
Ive been playing the Spring version of this epic game for a few days with Smirnoff now, and I must say its a perfect recreation.

The reason im posting is either to hopefully make some T:A Veterans (If any) or RTS fans to try this out and play with me and SmirnoFF
Its entirely free and very fun to play
