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.

Finally, the fourth media release for The Red Alert, a mod that aims to recreate the original Red Alert for Red Alert 3. As you can see, the focus this month was mostly on structures. As of now, over half the structures for both the Allies and the Soviets are fully coded and in-game. But! No point in taking my word for it, check out these screen shots:
And there are more in the "Images" section of the The Red Alert profile here on Mod DB. I apologize for the lack of action in the screen shots, but it appears it's not possible to mod the AI without breaking the game. This is especially bad news for those who were hoping for a recreation of the single player campaign. We can only hope this issue will be resolved in the future. In the mean time, enjoy the update. Hopefully, the next release will have a video!
