RA3 Reloaded is an partial total conversion and balance mod for Red Alert 3 designed to be the way it was meant to be played. It's not just only to return the right type of gameplay similar to vanilla C&C3;/KW but also to return some Uprising content from the RA3 Uprising expansion as well as other new units and new gameplay changes. This mod concentrates mostly on global changes and balances to gameplay.

The proposed changes for the upcoming full version of RA3 Reloaded.

Posted by PurpleGaga27 on Feb 16th, 2011

Now it's time for a rundown for me to finish this mod with these proposed changes. The mod release will be around the last week of March 2011. The changes are not final if more suggestions and changes are necessary. Feel free to give feedback.

Proposed RA3 Reloaded 1.0 Changes

• 13 new units from Uprising: ChronoCryo Legionnaire (renamed from Cryo Legionnaire), Pacifier FAV, Future Tank X-1, Harbinger Gunship, Chief Scientist, Giant War Bear (aka Ursa Major), Grinder, Reaper, Desolator, Mortar Cycle, Archer Maiden, Steel Ronin, Giga-Fortress. The modified Cryo Legionnaire will include a Chronoshift transport from one area to another. All of these units are at their regular cost values except that Harbinger Gunship costs 4000/40, Giga-Fortress costs 5000/50, Chief Scientist costs 800/8, Giant War Bear costs 4000/40.

• Added some other new units available to build in RA3:
-- Allied Battle Fortress (cost 2000/20) – requires Defense Bureau + Max Clearance
-- Soviet Tesla Tank (cost 1600/16) - requires Battle Lab
-- Soviet Desolator Bomber (cost 1800/18) - requires Battle Lab. Unit modified by DavoPlayer.
-- Japan Attack Drone (cost 500/5) - requires Japan Barracks

• Added Tier 4 structures and units to build which require a Tier 3 tech structure:

Allies:
-- Command Center 3000/30. (formerly VIP Bunker) Uses 100 power. Requires Defense Bureau.
-- Coastal Gun 2500/25. Uses 100 power. Requires Command Center. Needs a longer range effect.
-- ChronoTank 2400/24. Requires Command Center and Max Clearance. HP increased to 3000. Unit modified by TheWorms.
-- Future Tank X-1 3500/35. Requires Command Center and Max Clearance. A moderate buff on attack damage. Doubled HP to 6000.
-- Harbinger Gunship 4000/40. Requires Command Center and Max Clearance. HP increased to 6000.

Soviet:
-- Operations Center 3000/30. (formerly VIP Bunker) Uses 100 power. Requires Battle Lab.
-- Artillery Cannon 3000/30. (formerly Artillery Dome) Uses 100 power. Requires Command Center. Needs a moderate nerf on attack damage, splash damage, damage radius and range.
-- Mumakil 3000/30. (aka the April Fools Mammoth Tank) Requires Command Center. It's the modified unit from BFMEII and it can walk on water. Still needs work on using an anti-air weapon. Attack damage should be 30% higher than the Apocalypse Tank.
-- Giant War Bear 4000/40. (aka Ursa Major) Requires Command Center. HP increased to 8000.
-- Corrupted Lobster 2400/24. (aka Corrupter) Requires Command Center. The Soviets need a Desolator vehicle for support and defense lethal enough against infantry, light vehicles and structures. I doubt if using desolator spray can work on allied units for a healing effect. Unit modified by Jason Zombolt.

Japan:
-- Robotics Lab 3000/30. Requires Nanotech Mainframe. It must be placed on land.
-- Power Core 2500/25. (gains 700 power) Requires Nanotech Mainframe. It must be placed on land.
-- Tri-Cannon Gun 3000/30. Uses 150 power. Requires Robotics Lab. It must be placed on land.
-- Annihilator Tripod 3000/30. Requires Robotics Lab and Mecha Bay Max Upgrade. Attack damage nerfed significantly. If it weren't for Asuka, this unit wouldn't be possible to do, and the coding was messed up when it was released, until I fixed the coding changes.
-- Greater King Oni 4000/40. Limit three. Requires Robotics Lab and Mecha Bay Max Upgrade. HP decreased to 8000.
-- Shogun Executioner 10000/120. Limit one. Requires Robotics Lab and Mecha Bay Max Upgrade. Attack damage nerfed by 66%. HP increased to 12000. Unit ability cooldown increased to 30 seconds from 20 seconds.
-- Giga-Fortress 6400/30. Limit three. Requires Robotics Lab and Naval Yard Max Upgrade. Attack damage nerfed by 50% for both weapon types. HP increased to 6000.

• All global, balance and bug changes done in RA3 patches 1.11 and 1.12 are included in this mod. The following changes listed below are new and edited changes to enhance RA3 version 1.12:
-- Sidebar has 4 rows x 3 columns of building unit(s) and structure(s) just like from RA3 Uprising.
-- Multiplayer/skirmish modes now have more color options to choose from.
-- All Ore Collectors are no longer buildable from War Factory and Naval Yard to all three factions because it's redundant. They are buildable from Ore Refineries in which EALA already did.
-- Due to weak health values, all vehicles (except air units and tier 4 units) increase their HP by 30%, all structures increase their HP by 25% and all EORTS egg cores increase their HP by 25%.
-- Any unit that reaches heroic veterancy will auto-heal itself. Some units previously do not auto-heal.
-- Economic buff: each Ore Node (skirmish and MP only) starts with 40000 credits, Ore Miner collects 300 credits every 10 seconds, Oil Derrick gain 25 credits per second (capturing it gains 1000 credits), money crates gain 2000 credits.
-- MP settings have been modified such as having 10 beacons maximum and shroud is enabled.
-- Maximum capacity to all ore nodes increased to 40000. All ore miners collecting from ore nodes increase to 300 per turn. On some certain SP missions and skirmish maps, the count capacity of an ore node may be higher or lower than the maximum capacity.
-- Healing amount to repairing structures is only 40 per second.
-- Oil Derrick when captured gets 750 credits and then later gain 15 credits per second.
-- Main menu logo and screen splash for this mod added.
-- All Uprising maps ported into RA3 are included in the mod. All SP and MP maps in RA3 have been modified for zooming improvement.
-- Sentry gun decreased its attack damage to 30 from 40 because it was OP against armored vehicles.
-- Due to the gameplay issue of large units on the battlefield, all heroine units cannot attack Shogun Executioner and Giga-Fortress.
-- The elimination of air-to-air combat. It’s really an annoyance to most SP campaign missions and winds up a bad technique in gameplay. When attacking air units, aircraft are supposed to keep on moving, not to stop and attack. Also it’s unacceptable to have aircraft equipped with too much machine gun ammo to attack other aircraft. In C&C3, GDI Firehawks only have six to eight air missiles to attack against enemy aircraft but that was a unit ability as a secondary attack. As of now, all factional aircraft cannot attack other aircraft. Allied Apollo Fighters can no longer be built except on some SP campaign missions. Soviet Migs only rely on ground attacks just like Vindicators. Jet Tengus instead become scouting planes.
-- and other changes unannounced as of yet.
