I recently tried to make ICFRA compatible with NPatch, but I was getting internal errors before I'd even got the to main menu. However, VK responded very quickly to my bug report and released a new version which no longer causes these crashes.
So today I managed to leave the C&C3 Mod SDK alone long enough to make the current internal version of ICFRA fully compatible** with "NPatch Special Edition #0019".
Also worth noting is people are still posting bugs from R2.5 which is nice - in that it helps fix the mod and in that it shows people are still downloading/playing it.
A guest poster by the name of Matix pointed out that the Soviets didn't gain anything by capturing a Tech Airport if they had built an Airfield and vice-versa - so that's been fixed now.
** From one full skirmish game everything seems to work fine and I haven't had any crashes or errors at all yet.
