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.
This is more of a mini-release than a true media release as I don't have much to show this time around. The focus of this release is all about submarines. All two of them. So enjoy the pretty pictures and hopefully next time there will be more to show.
With that out of the way. You'd probably like to know what the mod team has been up to. As stated in our last update, the focus of CnC Labs is mostly on CnC: The Forgotten at the moment, and I expect you'll quite enjoy the next update when it comes out. But fear not, this mod ain't dead yet and won't be any time soon. In fact, we will most assuredly release both this mod and The Forgotten eventually; we don't let our mods die, here.
On a somewhat related note, for any aspiring RA3 modders out there, as well as modders who wish to see how the collapse models for this mod are made, I have made a tutorial for Red Alert 3 on how to create collapse models, complete with a MaxScript I wrote myself to make the process go much quicker. You can find the tutorial here, at the CnC Labs website. The tutorial uses the Missile Sub, featured in this update, as the subject. There are also three exclusive screen shots there of the poor Missile Sub blown to pieces.
That's all for now. I can't make any promises when the next update will be, but I do expect you'll see some more sea-going vessels in it.... C'ya'll next time!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like The Red Alert. We love games like C&C: Red Alert 3 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
