Side Ops are companion campaigns to the original C&C Red Alert that explore what was going on at the other fronts during the Allied and Soviet campaigns.

I made this pair of campaigns to explore what's going on while the main mission operations are happening.

For the Allies...
What were the supplies that needed to get through that mountain pass? (A02)
How did Tanya get captured? (A05)
What was going on in Sweden during the Soviet occupation? (A07)

For the Soviets...
What were the Soviets doing during the Allied Counterattack in Scandinavia? (S06)
What happened to the Generals that Gradenko signed the death warrants of? (S09)
How did the Soviets recapture Einstein? (S12)

The main campaigns have 32 missions in total, with a prologue and epilogue for both sides.

The 5 expansions to Side Ops, with extra 36 missions in total, are now also now available to download as part of Side Ops Complete.

Have a go at Side Ops, and find out how it all went down!

Commanders,

The scope of Side Ops is now global, stretching from the Bering Strait, all the way around the globe, to China.

It took a little longer than I hoped... but it's done.

Time for a brew. So what now?

I have no future projects in mind, but I will be going back and looking at my earlier maps and applying what I've learned to improve them. This has no time scale and shouldn't substantively change a mission, just polish it up a bit.

The latest 6 missions have been the most challenging, testing the limits of my skill, the engine, and my creativity! I'll release the little bits of data I wrote to change units to be the GLA and 1930's units - something I wasn't sure was possible when I had the idea, but seems to work ok :)

As always suggestions for how to improve, or ideas for future works, are always appreciated.

Have a good one,

Hi - I've been watching a playthrough of this mod on TaxOwlbear's YouTube channel the last few weeks, and am very impressed with its depth, detail, and variety - including a lot of cool in-mission triggers and reinforcements that are better than anything in the original game. Just wanted to say fantastic work on this; I look forward to downloading and playing it through myself soon. I've been looking for a good RA mod because I still love the original game the best, and this is what I've been looking for now for quite some time. - Cpt Lima

I can only recommend it, and I do agree that the mission pack surpasses some of the original missions.

Hi,

Just wanted to say that this a really good set of missions, consistent quality, engaging throughout (I think like 2 or 3 missions were a chore maybe, at most), I love the attention to details throughout, and the ideas involved in both story and how to make each mission its own.

I was expected the pack to be one note, or to get stale given how many missions there were. That didn't happen.

Hi Squishy,

Thank you very much, I appreciate it :)

I'll take that 95% success rate!

It is hard to keep it fresh, and as I've discovered there's quite a bit of diversity in play styles so I've tried to cater for multiple approaches to some missions (even made a couple I don't like myself, but others enjoy...).

I hope the final 6 missions, which I want to do by the end if Feb, will be enjoyable too.

Thanks again,
GaPFY

Well, its very unusual to se another mod for the original red Alert, figure everybody went crazy with the remasters and forgot about the classics. I suppose the original its easier to mod?.

Hi Paladin. Yeah, it's a bit easier - but to be honest it's because I just really like Red Alert!
