Emperor Corrino has issued a challenge that the House which can produce the most spice will control its source, the desert planet Dune, with no rules as to how the Houses can achieve the goal. Meanwhile, Lady Elara of the Bene Gesserit and bound concubine to the Emperor, secretly takes the commander - the player - into one of the Heighliners, a person whose bloodline and future the Sisterhood had checked. According to Elara, they saw many visions of the commander dying many times—and only in one vision does the commander live and even rise to control massive armies and bring peace to Arrakis.

Red Alert Global League Season 2

Greetings commanders!

After its very successful first season, Season 2 of the Red Alert Global League is about to kick off on September 5th. Ahead of its official start, the registrations have been opened to the general public. So if you have not yet participated in the league, but wish to do so, now would be the time to act, as registrations will close on August 31st.

The league’s rules are laid out in this forum thread, while information how to get your name registered is found in this thread.

The prize pool this time around is already at over $500, which I personally find quite astonishing. It will be well worth everyone’s time to try and get your share of the cake!

We wish all participants the best of luck and a lot of fun!


OpenRA development news

While the next release of OpenRA is not quite ready yet, we would like to give you a sneak peek at what we have been up to in the last few months and some of the things that you can expect to see in the hopefully not too distant future.

AI capturing an oil derrick

The AI will gain the ability to capture buildings. Additionally, several bugs regarding the AI’s handling of MCVs were fixed, as well as bug that made the AI eventually stop production of infantry units.

Changed score screen

The next release will feature a new scoring system that not only incorporates kills, but also capturing, infiltrations, repairing or healing allied buildings and units, and sending supply trucks. Please note that these scores are purely cosmetic and do not actually have influence on the outcome of matches.

New content installer

The content installation has been completely overhauled and will finally allow users to install game music and campaign briefing videos with a click of a button. In addition to the installation via CD or the download option, it will be possible to transfer assets from existing installations of the Origin versions of the games, or the Gruntsmod variant for Dune 2000.

New Nod missions

On the singleplayer front, Tiberian Dawn’s Nod campaign will make a huge jump forward with the addition of six(!) new missions.

New multiplayer mission

Long-time players may remember the cooperative multiplayer missions that have been shipped as part of OpenRA up to release-20131223, and which had to be dropped with the removal of the C#-based scripting engine. We are very happy to say that our Lua API is now powerful enough that these missions could be recreated and will be available again, playable in both single- and multiplayer modes!

I fondly remember this game :)

Even after seeing the film I don't know why, I must have misread it somewhere, but for years I thought that the spice was actually a really efficient and clean fuel (which was also renewable by the worms) and that is why the planet was sought after, hence the famous "He who controls the spice controls the universe". The one who controls the fuel, controls the space travel.
I know since then it's a drug and it IS some way used for space travel through the navigators, but to this day I still think it makes more sense as a fuel source only (well at least for me)

I have the PS version of this. Graphics are low quality, but 3d. That one actually has two colors per faction. Main color is whatever color is chosen by the player (or just blue, red, green in campaign depending on faction), but additionally Harkonnen always have a red secondary color, ordos have green, and atreides blue regardless of primary color. In campaign there's also yellow for smugglers, brown for Fremen, yellow-green for mercs (or just yellow. When combined with grey primary color it may look different), and purple for Corrino's Sardaukar.

The game had some great features like the sandworm and the pavement, I find it sad that these are not picked up by newer rts games.

Dune, worlds first RTS game.
If westwood hadn't made this, who knows maybe Warcraft and Star craft wouldn't exist.
