After a bit of a break, some more testing, and lots and lots and lots of listening to fan feedback, we've got our first patch almost all set. We are hoping to release this before the end of the year, hopefully before Christmas. It's been given to our great group of testers and we're hoping to make sure there are no bugs.

What about the Allied "more income" special ability (that button in the lower left)? The Allieds can use that to increase the amount of money they get from ore trucks, I think it's $17 per ore instead of $15 if you activate that (correct me if the values are wrong, don't want to start the game right now). The Soviets don't have any special abilities at all.
Is that just a forgotten relict of the stock RA3 (I must admit that I have never really played stock RA3, it's just a silly game in my opinion, TRA is how I want my RA ;)) or a feature?

PS: You guys definitely got my vote for moty!

Some of the good changes I was looking for are here. What about the voice taunts? Infantry taunts and vehicle taunts should be separate for both factions.
