It Came From Red alert! is a mod that brings the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert into Red alert 2: Yuri's Revenge. All versions require Red alert 2: Yuri's Revenge V1.001. The current, and likely final, version is Pre-release Candidate 1 (PRC1) which does not require any additional community patches. The mod originally started as a coding-only mod so that I could play something resembling Red Alert with the newer interface features like right click scrolling and turned into something way beyond that. It's been consistently popular since the first version was released with a steady trickle of views and downloads even to this day. Thank you all for the kind comments the mod has received over the years and I'm sorry I never managed to finish it, especially as it got so close to being totally done.
I've just done a little bit of maths and worked out It Came From Red Alert! has had 86734 downloads since Beta Release 1 was released and ICFRA! is in the current issue (issue #18) of Total PC Gaming.

I've just done a little bit of maths and worked out It Came From Red Alert! has had 86734 downloads since Beta Release 1 was released, plus all of the ModDB downloads that are unaccounted for from before the ModDB counters were reset after the update a while back.
I had to do the adding up three times because there have been about 21000 downloads since I last checked all of the numbers which seems insane since there hasn't been a release since then.
In other news ICFRA! is in the current issue (issue #18) of Total PC Gaming as part of a double-paged spread on Red Alert mods.
Also featured are the RA2 mods C&C Reloaded, Warhammer 40000, MRUIZ CTF, Robot Storm, C&C Renessans and Apocalypse along with maps Bahamma Mamma (Red Alert), Rivers of Uranium (Red Alert 2) and Hostile Dawn (Red Alert 3).
