The Tiberium Age by RoyalPsycho The Tiberium Age by RoyalPsycho
The Tiberium Age:
This is a more simple one made on request for Wisky-08. A map of the world set in the year 2047 just before the beginning of the Third Tiberium War and shortly before the arrival of the Scrin Menace. Soon a Nod insurgent force will capture the GDI Missile Defense Centre for the North American Atlantic Coast just as the GDI leaders prepare to hold a conference on the GDSS Philadelphia which is currently entering orbit over that particular region.

*May be a little different from what is shown on the wiki page but I like to think of this as a somewhat less simplified version of that map.

What's the backstory here?

It's a map of the world in Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars, the third game (technically fourth if you count expansions) in the Command & Conquer Tiberium series.

The series is based around a meteor landing in Italy along the River Tiber and bringing an alien mineral to earth that gets named Tiberium due to the river it landed in. Tiberium is apparently able to grow by assimilating organic matter and crystalising it. However the mineral is also invasive and incredibly toxic to native terrestrial life. As it grows it also either kills or mutates the local life, leaving parts of the world barren wastelands of Tiberium deposits with the exception of hostile mutated lifeforms.

Apparently it also serves as a relatively inexpensive and near infinte power source so the world does promote its growth in areas so they can harvest it and it becomes responsible for a new scientific revolution.

Then along comes a cult called the Brotherhood of Nod. They worship Tiberium, believe it will accelerate humanity to the next stage in its development both physically and spiritually and attack people who try to regulate or contain it. They're lead by a charismatic demagogue called Kane who believes he is the Messiah of this new world and apparently cannot be killed (it is revealed he is an alien which upset a lot of fans).

In response the UN founds the Global Defence Initiative or GDI which eventually supplants the world militaries altogether as Tiberium spreads and renders nation-states defunct.

This map is set in the mid-21st Century when Tiberium growth has spun out of control. Red Zones are areas of intense contamination where there is nothing but enormous deposits of Tiberium (Ice Age glacier size). Yellow Zones are less contaminated but also possess the majority of the human population and are in a state of social collapse and decay. They are also Nod's primary strongholds. Blue Zones are the GDI's strongholds, are free of Tiberium contamination and have achieved a state of near post-scarcity standard of living.

Then the third game begins and you have to fight the Third Tiberium War.

Shouldn't southeastern Asia be a yellow if the map is before TW3? Anyway, it's a good map.

But Southeast Asia is a Yellow Zone. The little Red Zones there were stated to already exist by 2047 in the wiki if that's what you're talking about.

D'oh, I meant to say Southeast *Europe* >_<.

The wiki also stated that South East Europe is a Red Zone. A few other parts of C&C3 did have Nod set up bases in Red Zones.

Yeah, but that was after TW2. Temple Prime and Sarajevo where in yellow zones until TW3 (the liquid Tiberium explosion converted that area from Yellow to Red).

I did that one a good long while back. Yours is better, though.

Hi

Any chance for Tiberium Game Earth of 2058, GDI RAID, General McNeil

Tiberium intro


GDI Airships


Look at GDI great sea wall to protect Earth's oceans ever since the Mediterranean Sea was infested. 


Mediterranean Sea Floor infested, 


GDI piercity


The concept here is that due to overpopulation and scarcity of land, large urban habitats (called arcologies) are constructed on enormous semi-submersible platforms (think giant oil rigs). This is a view underneath one of these platforms, with more of the city visible in the distance.
