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 eighth media release for the Red Alert 3 mod: The Red Alert, a mod that brings the original artistic feel to the Red Alert 3 engine.

This release isn't as big as I was hoping it would be as most of the updates this month are behind the scenes, but that doesn't mean we don't have some pictures to show. I've finally gotten around to putting the Ore Refinery in the game, which I was procrastinating due to not knowing how the ore system is going to be handled. I still don't know, but I realized it wouldn't matter in the end. Also, despite what I may have said earlier, we are going to have the different countries in the game with their respective minor attribute bonuses; this is due to the fact that it doesn't seem to be possible, at all, to remove Japan thus giving us only two faction, so instead we added some. Anyways, pictures:
Of course, there are more in the images section. I also want to once again assure everyone that both this mod and The Forgotten CnC: The Forgotten are chugging along. Hopefully, both will be ready for release sometime next year. Well, there's nothing else to report, so I'll see you next month.
