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.
We're ready to announce the release date for The Red Alert version 1.1, the patch that fixes a number of issues and bugs in the mod: this Saturday, December 17th.

We're ready to announce the release date for The Red Alert version 1.1, the patch that fixes a number of issues and bugs in the mod: this Saturday, December 17th. In addition to the change log previously posted, we've made a few new bug fixes, including a fix for the music on low detail (thanks, bibber) and a fix for the special abilities for Greece and Spain.
The patch is undergoing final testing now, but assuming all goes well, you'll get it on Saturday. It will come in two forms, a 5mb patch installer for those of you who already have version 1.0, and a full new download, for those of you just discovering the mod.
Also, we appreciate your vote in the mod of the year contest!
