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 Red Alert Media Release Number Three!!!

As modding has resumed on The Red Alert since the release of the RA3 Mod SDK, we're proud to release a new batch if in-game screen shots. These new images feature three Allied vehicles and two Soviet vehicles in-game and fully functional. It also shows The Allied War Factory and Allied Pillbox. Check out these screens right here!

There are a few more in the "Images" section of the ModDB profile, as well as an early WIP image of the various house colors that will be in the mod, in case you missed it. Further updates on The Red Alert will be on a monthly basis (I hope). So I'll see you next month when we'll have more pretty pictures to show off!

Looks as great as the original, although the RA3 style of graphics does not fit RA1's style, In my opinion.

Ahhh, this is exactly what I want. RA3 is too cartoony.

Words cannot describe the sheer awesomeness of these screenshots.

However, if I can make a suggestion, could you give the medium tank a bigger cannon (or make the cannons of all tanks black)? Because I can barely see it and RA3's overbright lighting doesn't help... ;D

Interesting take on the art. Most people base remakes on the cameos, not the sprites.

Something about that War Factories lighting amuses me.

Excellent! This is the whole reason i bought Red Alert 3, after playing it at a friends i found it deeply disappointing. But i decided the possible mods for it would be worth buying it. I see this now and i can't wait! Great work, also; i'd be willing to help if you're looking for team members!

Wow. That actually looks like a 3D version of Red Alert, as opposed to something that was just mildly influenced by Red Alert. (Don't look at me. >.>)

Very nice work.
