Dark experiments have permanently altered time. Or have they? Now, Soviet tanks crush city after city while Allied cruisers shell bases. Spies lurk, land mines wait, and strange new technologies aid both sides in their struggle for ultimate control. Einstein was a brilliant mind, but he did not comprehend the consequences of his actions until it was too late... Command & Conquer: Red alert gives you the opportunity to be more devious, cunning and ruthless than ever before. Easy to play and highly addictive, Red alert puts the fate of the world in your hands!

We are proud to announce the June 2015 release of OpenRA!

As promised, it was our goal to reduce the length of this development cycle, and we succeeded! With about 22500 changed lines in just over 300 commits by a total of 25 developers since the last release, the list of new features is naturally a bit shorter than last time around, but it contains some good ones!

The standout feature of this release is of course the long-awaited in-game map editor. For the first time ever, we are offering a map editing ability for all our mods, on all supported operating systems. You can access the map editor from the “Extras” sub-menu of the main menu.

The new map editor offers the following benefits and features:

  • Fully cross-platform, just like the game itself. Finally, a map editor for OS X!
  • Truly WYSIWYG. It uses the game renderer, so there are no more rendering glitches.
  • Support for all mods. The legacy editor did not support Dune 2000 properly, and Tiberian Sun not at all.

Compared to the legacy editor, there is not yet full feature parity: the in-game editor is missing cut-and-paste operations, a display of the sum of resources on the map, and also does not show the coordinates of cells. These short-comings will be rectified in future releases. Meanwhile, they remain available in the legacy editor, which is still being shipped with this release. It will, however, be removed in the not too distant future.

Complementing the new editor is an improved map chooser dialog, which now separates official and custom maps. It also allows deleting one or all of your custom maps. We also took this chance to add the often-requested ability for all players to view the map chooser from the game lobby (but changing the map still remains the prerogative of the host).

Another new feature with a lot of potential is the added operating system integration of OpenRA. The installers will associate the game with OpenRA replay files and OpenRA server URLs. These will allow websites hosting replay archives to add one-click watching of replays, and creating alternative server browsers. As an example, our own web-based server browser has been enhanced to offer clickable links to waiting games that will automatically start OpenRA and connect you to the server. You can also create bookmarks to your favourite OpenRA servers on your desktop! These associations are available on all supported operating systems as well.

Other minor additions include:

  • The Dune 2000 mod has gained building upgrades, and now matches the original game’s tech tree.
  • A total of six single-player missions have been added to the Tiberian Dawn mod. Enjoy!
  • The “Team health colors” option now provides a better distinction between your own and allied units.
  • Support powers can now be activated using configurable hotkeys.
  • A “quick placement” mode has been added which will automatically pick up a completed building for placement when the player selects the corresponding production tab.

Aside from new features, the usual number of bug fixes has found its way into the code. Among them is a fix for a high-profile bug that caused the inability to undeploy construction yards. Several graphical problems, from glitches in the menus to occasionally missing mouse cursors have been resolved as well as issues in our single-player mission scripts.

Take a look at the full changelog for all the gory details.

Grab the installer now for your operating system from our download page! We hope you’ll enjoy this newest installment of OpenRA!

Ingame map editor

The new map editor was almost 18 months in the making!


Web-based server browser

The added operating system integration allows connecting to games from links on websites or bookmarks.


New single-player missions

The work on our single-player campaigns is progressing nicely.
The Nod campaign is now almost half done!


D2k building upgrades

Building upgrades have been added to our Dune 2000 mod,
which now allow us to almost match the original game’s tech tree.

Ra1 is related to C&C1: Tiberium dawn, and C&C2:Tiberian Sun but not by storyline,
Stalin's "Counslieor" is Joe D. Kucan, which is the actor that plays Kane, and Joe also is the director of Red alert...

Love RA1! You can tell that the best of the best was put in for this game, despite its graphics compared to now. Then they were very good, plus the cmapaign had a great storyline no matter what, with that great question of "what if..."
