·The Red Alert: The original, the only, the true; The Red Alert.

The Red Alert, under development by the mod team of C&C Labs, 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 and critically acclaimed on other sites, with GameSpy calling it "A Command and Conquer fan's dream come true."

More than eighteen months after its release, The Red Alert mod is still alive and kicking, and more than 17 years after release, the classic Red Alert 1 game is fresher than ever. Whether you played the original game, are just a fan of the mod, or are new entirely, this release has something for you, with a host of gameplay enhancements, AI improvements, and bug fixes. In particular, we'd like to thank ZeroMD for doing so much to make it possible.

It's available in two versions: a patch and a complete download. Head over to the downloads page or take a look at the mod's trailer.

It's shame it's mutliplayer-only. I'd like to play the campaign much more.

good graphic and mod,I am a fan of ra so I have some notice and suggestion
-AI is broken,pls fix it, I try to play against 1 AI or 3 at brutal, it seems AI don't care about fighting me,instead it keeping sending useless wave that reach the door of my base then changing it mind and retreat
(when I sent 1 tank ai seems to fear it and retreat?)
-ore mines should scattered all over the land not in specific spot
-many missing sounds,sound of far battles missing(ai attacking each other like original ra)
-infantry animation\model size and speed need tweak
-plz remove yellow selection shader and icon above unit
-balancing,I remember mammoth tank to be tougher
-many animation need tweaking especially exploding airplane
-AI strategy should be attacking ore trucks if it outside the base else it should attack nearest building like original ra
thank you for this awesome mod and I hope you update it soon

This was a fun mod but it's full of holes! There's animation errors and many sound effects are missing. It's a good beta but when is the next release coming?

you'll need to replace the origin launcher exe file with the original red alert 3 launcher exe

Alright, so I had at a it a bit, and here's my tentative opinion. First of all, the number one thing hurting this mod is lack of coherency. When I started a game on Pier Pressure, I had my large, smooth-looking conyard right next to an original RA3 structure. It was extremely jarring. Second, many units feel underdesigned and bland. I'm going to have to stick to my opinion from the first video (http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-red-alert/videos/the-red-alert-gameplay-trailer#imagebox) that the visuals…

Before i begin im firstly gunna have to say that my grade of 5 is due to the fact that i have feelings about this mood that are both good and bad, and in my book you round up from 5 :) Good points * Red Alert, just like how i remember it. * The use of modern feature like garrisons and tech structures * The ore mine (I like both node and mine btw) * old icons for units * The use of the nations for the diffrent bonuses (Like England and Ukrane) Bad points :( * Red Alert balancing factor. (the game…
