The Red Alert, developed by the mod team of C&C Labs (makes of The Forgotten and C&C All Stars, undertakes one of the most ambitious tasks in C&C modding: to recreate and improve upon an original game. The mod, in development for Red Alert 3, is based off the original Red Alert's art and game play. Not aiming to model realism, it instead endeavors to bring the addictive heart-pounding game play of the classic to a world-class 3D engine, to bring back all of the classic units, including those from Aftermath, and to recreate the very "feel" of its art style. With The Red Alert, epic tank battles, MiG attack runs, and Cruiser strikes will be more than just fond memories — they will all be weapons in your arsenal once again! It was released on September 21, 2011 and was ranked the number one mod on Moddb.

Will nukes still be as weak as in Red Alert?
I remember that is was barely worth using back then,
since the blast radius and damage was so small.

I hope that you'll take some liberties regarding the nuke.

Wow, that's quite the effect you got there.

Also, will you be remaking some of the civilian assets? And techies?

Structures under the gap effect have a miniature gap effect bordering them (to let you know they're hidden). That's what kevinov27 is seeing through the smoke, not the silo itself.

I'd still like to know if it's modified in comparison with the original RA95 nuke though D:
I hope so, the RA95 nuke was useless ._.

It doesn't have to be OMGWTF like the C&C3 Superweapons (Ion Cannon ;D)
but at least more useful than it used to be.
Like somewhere in between.

Like the original in RA, it's not exceptionally powerful (compared to the super weapons of later CnCs), it does, however, have a shorter countdown timer than it did in the original.

Atom bomb approaching or Atom bomb detected, I am very sure about the first 2 words, but the 3rd word was fuzzy/muffled so I am unsure. (I remember hearing that when launching an atom bomb on Red Alert 1)

Sorry if these seem a little lackluster compared to previous releases; I wasn't really prepared this month.
