Welcome to another mod by me, MustaphaTR.

I had this idea of a storyline of pre-Red Alert stuff for a while now. I wanted to make a mod of OpenRA, or of HoI4, but the fact that i was working on a lot of stuff kept me away from it.

But i have still ended up starting to this mod. It has been i think 2 week so far. I have completed basic tech tree and adding special units for all 29 countries that are in the mod.

There are 6 different factions with 29 countries in the total in the mod. But the differences between factions are pretty minimal similar to Dune 2000. Currently each faction have 3, each country have 1 additional unit.

The mod itself is gonna be mostly focused on the campaign and the storyline. But i haven't really started doing any missions. I'm currently trying to replace all the placeholder cameos with something proper.

You can find a todo list here for the future of the mod.

You can download the mod from GitHub page, but as i stated above it is in pretty early stage.

I have a thought. Maybe you should cooperate with OpenRA Combined Arms developers, Mustapha? Frogfoot would make a good bomber, moreover, you could use assets like wheeled Tank Destroyer, SAM on truck for more accurate Katyusha MLRS for USSR, adapting BTR instead of Battle-Fortress style M113-IFV... On the other hand, they could profit from your StuG (Intermarium) tank destroyer, hedgehogs, flakboat, and so on.

Nice... this might be the fist game i ever tried modding, way back in 90s when openRA was on geocities when he made desert storm. when i started, getting the pic show in game was a pain, lol. i give you props sir for not letting a Legend of a game die. pallettes & readme files... classic

I love the idea. I can’t wait for this to come out. Will there be missions in Africa?

Training missions will be about Italian Conquest of Ethiopia. There is a mission in Libya in my currently incomplete mission plans, there may be some more in Horn of Africa.

That's cool. I'm assuming you'll make an Ethiopian non playable faction?
