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.

I think the idea is good and the graphics look almost like those in the original Red Alert, but in 3D. All in all, the mod looks promising.

I think that it's great that you have literally taken the origional graphics to heart here, for instance the light tank has a round turret exactly as per the origional. Fantastic work, keep on churning it out.

Yep, agreed, it is looking good and very authentic and line with the original... I do like the way you have added the original in the top left as it gives everyone, even those who have not played the original, an idea of what you are working toward...

Just be sure not to make Iron Curtain's mistake and not update the gameplay a bit. Having put a *bunch* of hours into that failed project, I can assure you it's not a route to take. Don't recreate Red Alert, reimagine it a bit.

THAT is exactly what I have hoped would come for Tiberian Wars, but if I have to wait for RA3 its okay...
Looks really great and I have to say, that the first RA was the Best ever...
