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 is going to be a small update (yes, I know the last update was small too), but I assure you, progress is being made! I'll remind you that, while this is a CnC Labs mod, it's mostly handled by me, and I've got to split my time between this mod and CnC The Forgotten (plus college and life). After no help from EA, I've finally started to get some infantry into the game. I've also started a couple prototype maps, so no more of those RA3 looking terrains in the screen shots.
With that out of the way, we have an important announcement coming up soon: We need RA3 map makers to recreate the original Red Alert skirmish maps. An announcement post will be made soon enough detailing what we need and how you can apply. So if you're interested, keep an eye out. Okay, screens now:
So there you have it. Another small little update. As you can see, things are starting to take shape. I can't make any promises about the size or timing of the next update, so you'll just have to take my word for it: This mod is not dead!
