RA shellmap
The Red Alert mod includes a new main menu and desert-themed shellmap.

Construction Yard radius
C&C and D2K now requires buildings to be constructed near a construction yard, reducing the effectiveness of multiple-building-queue base-walking strategies.

Bridge repairing
Bridges can now be repaired by sending an engineer into the rubble.

Try installing or some other Linux distribution on your smartphone and then the Debian package from our site. You don't need wine, just mono.
