Comrades, support of mods for Red Alert 3 finally arrived, and they are available for download through Desura. Below are all mods that are currently supported, you can choose any you'd like to try out first.

Some of them change gameplay significantly, adding new units, structures and gameplay features, while others modify the core gameplay only a little. Each one of them is definitely worth checking out.

Best luck out there on the battlefield.

If you have problems with installing or running a mod for the Steam version of Red Alert 3, you can send a PM and we'll see what can be done about it.

Of course i am -.- come I like to check this mod out.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I've played the Beta 2.7 version of Red Star, and besides the as-of-yet unimplemented Support Powers, I have only one problem... the construction interface needs to be reworked. The new colors are interesting, especially the neon/apple green color... very notable on the field. But, still. The interface needs to be redone/repaired. It's really my only problem with it.
