An expansion/overhaul mod of epic proportions, with entirely rebalanced gameplay, expanded factions, new gametypes, graphical overhauls, and five new factions; stealth-based Confederate Revolutionaries, tower defense-inspired Atomic Kingdom of China, economy-focused Mediterranean Syndicate, DotA-esque Order of the Talon and spammy Electrical Protectorate.

As the release date approaches, we're on the hunt for some help. Also, we say a sad goodbye to founding member and lead coder Kerensky287.

Posted by on

As you may or may not know, Red Alert 3 Paradox's first release is slated for July 4, 2010, and we're really quite close to achieving that goal. Unfortunately we've been hit by a double whammy of unfortunate circumstance, and in short we're looking for a little help from the community to help us achieve our deadline. Basically, we're down to the last few units needing to be finishing; we're just animating infantry and finishing up coding some units. Unfortunately our lead coder, Kerensky287, recently had to leave the project, so we need some temporary help until we figure out how to get through this.

We're not looking for full-time team members, we're just on the hunt for some temporary work. Coding a unit or two, getting some animation done on an infantry unit, or making some collaspe models or damage textures. Mappers would also be a great help. Anyone helping us out such will have access to builds as we make them to help us with the testing process and their name in the credits of the finished work. If you are personally unable to help, but know people who might or post on a different community, forwarding/posting this there would be a great help to us.

If you don't have any experience, don't worry! We'll give you a crash course in the required skill.

Thank you for you time and support.

If anyone needs any coding help that signs up, you can contact me at TheTrueHuhnu@hotmail.com on Windows Live Messenger.

This is only if you want to help Paradox though, I'm not just gonna give coding lessons, as I have my own work to do on Paradox.

I might be able to help I don't know a whole lot about coding and stuff and I do have school, but that's winding down and I'd love to do anything I can to see Paradox through.

So if you can get me the tools and the knowledge I can hopefully help you guys out :)

I'll see what I can do about making some damage textures... Robo's World 3 is on hold right now anyways.

I'm sorry to hear that Kerensky is leaving...

RA3 uses xml so it shouldn't be too difficult if you know C++

Will kerensky ever come back? And may this mean that the mod will eventually die?

If this mods fate is to eventually die before total completion, then I hope it doesn't happen before the second modpack release.

Dudes, he just means that one way or another this project will eventually end; completion or failure was never mentioned. I really don't want to have to work on this my whole life, then pass on leadership to my children, who will pass it to their children, and so on and so forth.

Unless of course we get hired by EALA to revive the C&C series. Or our children. Or their children.

If anyone asks me, it'll be around the time of possibly the third or fourth pack if it does die out. So I'm presented with the very real possibility of there being no Talon, China, Syndicate - or the often unloved Protectorate.

Id be more then happy to attempt to find time to map for you guys. I know a fair deal of coding in mapping, and I can make decent enough maps. (after a few previous versions of course)

Hit me up with a message. Ill get back to you when I can.

Ps. I cant code. :P

Two questions:

How much computer programming do we need to know before hand for this crash course?

And:

What software would I have to download?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

None if you are suffiently enthusiastic, and the RA3 SDK.

Plus, it's all in XML, which isn't hard to understand AT ALL (well, compared to most programming languages... But still), and all you need in order to edit xml files is Notepad. So you're pretty much prepared already. All you need is the SDK: Moddb.com

The only thing you need for coding is the mod SDK and sufficient motivation. I learnt is rather easily, and with almost no help at all.

The only things I can do is come up with ideas and draw concept art for it, but you guys seem to have that all the ideas covered :/

I wish I were a bit experienced in coding/mapping/textures so I can help out, but alas, I am not.

Hope to play this soon. I'm waiting for the Japanese pack >_< Destroying things with mechs gives me an ****** :D

My skills may be a bit rusty, but I'll see what I can do.
I know I got on and off board once, but that was a year ago.

I can map, and MAYBE code, like I said, my skills might've gotten rusty.

I have sufficient skills in mapping, If you needed some skirmish-based or campaign template maps I'd be more than happy to help over the fast approaching holidays.

I GOT NOTHING ELSE BETTER TO DO!
Just message me at: ryan2taylor@hotmail.co.uk and let me know if you would consider me to do some of the dirty work (map making) for you.

Cheers :)

I'll help, but I have nothing going for me other than enthusiasm and free time. If someone could show me where to get the programs and teaches me how to do it I will, though I cannot test maps and codes and animations ingame because I do not own it. I did at one point, but not anymore
