New Version in the works

Yes, I finally realized the AI can be edited. To jump start the progress I am starting this mod off of the Upheaval source code. I may even call this version Upheaval: Just's Rules as credit to Upheaval. If this is ok with it's creators.

Just Rules aims at increasing the strategic options in RA3. It includes things like a more balanced upgrade system, revised protocols and build limits on each unit design to discourage spamming and encourage diverse unit formations and strategies.

Changes to each faction are posted in the features section

Here is a list of general changes that are currently in Just Rules.

Uprising units added
(reordered and rebalanced)

Removed Aircraft Production Buildings
(Moved light aircraft to Vehicle production buildings)

Removed Tier 3 Bomber Aircraft
(New Protocol Powers will use them)

Increased building armor vs "Gun" from 100% to 50%
(It is already 50% vs vehicles. Why make an anti infantry weapon work any better on Structures?)

Tech Buildings will now have upgrades
(Not just one or two but many. More details later)

Naval Production Buildings - Cost increased from $1000 to $2000
(Changed to match Vehicle production buildings)

All MCV/ConYards Atributies are now standardized
(Speed, Armor and HP)

All MCVs cost decreased from $5000 to $3000
(Nothing is $5,000 anymore)

Harvasters can no longer be built from War Factory or Naval Yard
(Except for the Allied one. Refinery build makes others meaningless.)

Comrades, support of mods for Red Alert 3 finally arrived, and they are available for download through Desura. Below are all mods that are currently supported, you can choose any you'd like to try out first.

Some of them change gameplay significantly, adding new units, structures and gameplay features, while others modify the core gameplay only a little. Each one of them is definitely worth checking out.

Best luck out there on the battlefield.

If you have problems with installing or running a mod for the Steam version of Red Alert 3, you can send a PM and we'll see what can be done about it.

Its not that simple. It is not like there is a tag that says "isShiftable". I will have to try and remove the shift function altogether (I never use it). If that does not work I will have to change build limits to units of 5. RA3 is full of hard coded modding pitfalls.

EA should have called the game Trash Alert 1. There is 1 way to fix this and only one. That is to set the Max queue of each building to 2! I am not doing that. I am going to rewrite the balance sheet and set the Max queue limits to 4. All units will have a limit no less than 4. I'll leave the 1.0 version up but I will make a 1.1 hot fix version. Thanks for pointing this out.

It gets worse. The Max queue would actually have to be set at 1. If it is at 4 then you can build 3 and hit shift for the last one and have 7!

Yes, The AAF (Allied Assault Force) sub-faction will have them in place of cryocopters. I might use that Empire transport for something too.

hopefully this mod makes the campaign more fun, with the unit build limit and all

a suggestion: make the refineries give 5 credits every now and then, so late game(if you make it there) you aren't working off of 2-3 ore nodes only giving 60 credits since they are depleted, you have something else backing your economy

of course since its only 5 every 20 seconds, you only make 15 extra credits a minute(per refinery, so it should be balanced, since the only to make a major use of it would be in a stupid amount, like 20 refineries just to make 300 a minute

of course its your mod, thats just a suggestion, you dont have to do it ;)

Actually, I could just increase the depleted amount to 75 or 100.
