Built-In Mods

Red Alert

sovietsThe RA mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of Command & Conquer: Red Alert. It is not just a clone of the original but has improved and rebalanced gameplay. The UI is modernised for higher resolutions and better usabiltiy. It has fully working multiplayer support for both internet and local play (via direct connect).

Tiberian Dawn

Tiberian Dawn The CNC mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn game. As with Red Alert modern networking and rendering technology is used. Also new features are implemented such as snow terrain, neutral tech buildings and many glitches from the original have been fixed.

Dune 2000

ArrakisThe D2k mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of Dune 2000. A remake of the remake so to speak. It separates itself from the rest of the C&C series in terms of lore, certain game mechanics and file formats, but also shares a lot of technology with it's spiritual successors. Avoid the sandworms and build your base on stable foundations. The spice must flow!

I want to back one or more issues of the Tiberian Sun build:

Which issues are most crucial to get the mod done?

Auto deploy attacks, I think. Well, to attack, it needs to deploy, that's quite obvious. However, the timing of undeploy is not very simple.

In case you haven't found it or others are wondering, the file from the mod needs to be placed in the 'mods' folder in the directory OpenRA is installed, like every other mod, but then you need to double-click the file for this mod for it to be added to the selection, which you need to do each time you want to play it.

Ignore what I wrote, it won't launch that way. The install instructions are here: Moddb.com

Sir, this is a player from China. I would like to do a translation for OpenRA, could I get some help about game text and text fonts from you? Thank you, sir!

OpenRA uses True Type Fonts (TTF) from the GNU FreeFont project Gnu.org at the moment. However support for translations is still at it's infancy. See Github.com
