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 Assault 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).

OWA is not going to be around for the weekend so, until he gets back to post a real blarg, danpaul88 thought he would show you a little something he's been working on;

Allied GI Deployment

Apologies about the sound going out of sync during the video, danpaul is yet to find any free video recording software that actually WORKS properly on Windows 7 x64.... this is the best he can get.

The GI is not allowed to deploy unless;
1) He is standing still (prevents midair deployments among other things)
2) He is not too close to another unit (stops GI's deploying next to tanks or other soldiers to trap them inside the sandbag's model, preventing them from moving)


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.

Make a *POOF* effect when you switch to bunker mode, and like red alert 2's GI when switching to the bunker (and back), there is an animation involved before you can use the unit, other than that, nice work team :)

There will indeed be some kind of deployment effect in the final version and it won't be an instant switch from deployed to undeployed either, there will be a short (2 or 3 seconds) delay to prevent it being abused.
