Command & Conquer Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising, brings Westwood Studios' popular real time strategy game, C&C: Red Alert 2 into the FPS pespective, using the w3d engine. You will be able to experience, first hand, what it feels like to fill the boots of an Allied GI battling the communist might of the Soviet Union, or a Soviet Conscript vowing to take back what was lost to the Allies during the first great war. Classic units return such as the versatile Allied IFV to the mighty Soviet Apocalypse Assualt Tank to the gargantuan Allied Aircraft Carrier to the mad Giant Squids. This game features all of the units and structures for the Allied and Soviet sides from both RA2 and the Yuri's Revenge Expansion. The Apocalypse is Rising Commander. Are you prepared for it? (Credit goes to everyone who has donated and contributed to this mod. We shall not let you down).

Blog 184 contains the Allied Nighthawk, Allied War Factory, Ingame Sounds, Map Props and a cool video about Tech Building Capturing!

Nighthawk Transport

The Allied Nighthawk is turning out to look pretty awesome, Guy With a Wrench has been working hard on getting the texture just right and now with added blue! We've also got a better machine gun for it  :ssh: .

(Click the images to make them bigger!)



Allied War Factory

dtrngd has started work on the Allied War Factory. You may of seen an already textured War Factory in some of our videos and think "Why are you guys remaking it?". Well that's a model that was given to us by Fobby and Sloth from their old mod. He has taken the model that Ric made for us and started to give it a going over on some places, expect interiors soon!



ModDB Shouts

That's right, it is that time once again and phase 2 has already started. Thanks to all of your votes we made it into the top 100 but we are going to need your help once again (sorry). Be sure to click on the big IOTY image below this text, go to Unlreleased games, Tactical Shooters and vote for Apocalypse Rising! We've always made it into the top 10 but it would be super awesome to win the title "Best Unlreleased IOTY"

Indie of the Year Awards

So make sure you vote for us and RA:APB on IOTY because APB are going to best released IOTY!

Sounds Good

WallyWood has been working on some really cool sounds lately, but instead of me telling you about them why not just listen to them?

The Nighthawk

Crazy Ivan

New Map Props and Decorations

To help with our easy fan mapping in LevelEdit using Heightfield mapping, Guy With a Wrench made the plants and AntonioHandsome modelled and textured the fuel can for placing in LevelEdit.

These have been added to our prop library which should have a fair amount of placeable objects when Apoc Rising's LevelEdit is released.

Tech Building Captured

danpaul88 has been busy making sure our tech building capturing is working 100%, here is a small video showing you how it all works.


As you can see, it's pretty cool

Recruitment

We are looking for extra staff members to join our ranks! What we are looking for in a 2d artist, is someone who:

  • is enthusiastic about working with the BHP Apocalypse Rising Team.
  • has spare time.
  • will be active in the foreseeable future (a.k.a we don't want you running off).
  • is competent at creating their own 2d textures.
  • is over the age of 16 (we overlook this if you are what we assess to be a mature individual. This rule is known as the TruYuri rule).

PM One_Winged_Angel with your application stating why you would like to join the team along with any past experience. Please provide example textures, if you have any.
