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.
The fifth media release from The Red Alert, A mod that aims to recreate the look and feel of the original Red Alert in Red Alert 3.

The Red Alert mod presents the fifth media release. As usual, I don't have much to say, pictures are better than words anyway. At this point, nearly all the structures are more-or-less complete. The only one that isn't is the Ore Refinery as we're still working out exactly how we're going to handle it, as well as ore nodes, and indeed working out what's even possible. As soon as we get that squared away, we may start hiring for a map maker to remake the classic Red Alert skirmish maps, and perhaps even invent a few new ones (though, mapmakers, please don't contact us until we put out an official job posting).
Anyways, focus has shifted to vehicles, starting with land vehicles. For those who are wondering, infantry will come last as we would like to give EA time to release more infantry-based assets to assist in the infantry making process. Of course, I know what you really want to see, but Mod DB doesn't allow those kind of pictures, so you'll have to settle for some screen shots instead:
I never get tired of that electric glow.... As usual, these are but a few of the pictures, there are eight more in the Images section of the profile. I swear, one of these days we'll get some video footage.... until then, see you next month!
