  1. I guess it's time to finally show my Red Alert project I've been mentioning! All the skills I've learned making the Heroes of Might & Magic and Command & Conquer scenarios mentioned above is now being put into the hardest scenario I have ever attempted! A Red Alert 2 Siege of New York scenario where you'll be battling it out in city streets between huge sky scrapers.. and yes I know I'm crazy as that's totally something the Civ2 engine wasn't built for hahaha! Here are the first 3 dev diaries on the Red Alert 2 Siege of New York scenario. Disclaimer - Hopefully the final product will be waaaaay better than all these WIP test shots but I gotta start somewhere haha. In this first dev diary we look at experimenting with Civ2's terrain limits & using some sneaky tricks to begin creating a Red Alert 2 style city map with Liberty island, bridges and buildings. RA2 Dev Diary 01 - Liberty Island, Bridges & Buildings in the Civilization 2 - Red Alert 2 Scenario https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/liberty-island-bridges-buildings . In the second dev diary we look at adding bigger buildings, Command centers with walls, and lots of other nice decoration trying to push Civ2's terrain limits. RA2 Dev Diary 02 - Bigger Buildings & More Decoration in the Civilization 2 - Red Alert 2 Scenario https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/bigger-buildings-more-decoration . In the third dev diary we look at adding special fun buildings like the McBurger Kong and Petrol Station, while overhauling all previously made small buildings to much better quality. RA2 Dev Diary 03 - McBurger Kong & Better Quality Buildings in the Civilization 2 - Red Alert 2 Scenario https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/mcburger-kong-better-buildings
  2. Just heard about a interesting project called Alliance of the Sacred Suns. While it looks like a Master of Orion like 4x space style strategy game it also seems a bit different in that it focuses more on you the emperor, in that it feels kinda of like a Dune - Padishah Emperor simulator managing those pesky greedy disobedient houses haha! Planetary management looks interesting, those separated regional environments and developments remind me of MOO3. A simple thing but I also love how the planets moons just swing past the camera while you're managing the world. Haven't seen any space battle footage so I dunno how that's managed. It's kickstarter campaign is over half way through but it's not even at half funded which is a bit worrying. It's been worked on for many years and seems so far along so hopefully the project would survive a KS failure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7_Tt9YAZ7E
  3. SCORE!! I found a Dune Civ2 mod!! I friggin knew there was one out there but just couldn't find it anywhere until now!

  4. Hey guys I’m on the Hunt for big Civilization game series total conversion mods & scenarios with a particular focus on Civ2 & Civ3 (but am now expanding to Civ4, 5, 6 & spinoffs) relating to a whole bunch of my favourite fantasy & scifi movie/TV/gaming franchises (including C&C, RA and Dune!). Been posting in a few different Civ forums and getting great feedback, plus whenever someone has told me about an awesome scenario that’s disappeared over the years I’ve managed to track it down and bring it back from the dead to CivFinatics or ModDB hosting, so helping me has helped the community. Hell in some rare cases I’ve even filled a gap by making the scenario myself haha! Anyway I figured it was finally time to hit some of the other communities out there for help too (since fans of Civ and these franchises are everywhere haha). Many have already been found so make sure you check my list in the link below BEFORE making suggestions to save yourself time & effort lol! https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/scenario-hunt-mars-alphac-c-c-ra-dune-mom-col-moo-doom-b5-strek-swars-sgate-homm.657805/ At this stage I’m looking for Civ scenarios relating to Mars Colonization, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Command & Conquer, Red Alert, Dune, Master of Magic, Sid Meier's Colonization, Master of Orion, Doom, Babylon 5, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Fallout, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, The Elder Scrolls, Warcraft and Heroes of Might & Magic. If you can’t help me then maybe my list will still help you find something cool! .
  5. haha thanks but to mod Civ4 you gotta be a 3D artist and I've got no idea about that stuff. All my mod prjects are for 90s games as that was back when games were simpler meaning someone of my meager skills could actually do cool stuff lol
  6. Anyone else excited about Cyberpunk 2077s release? Being a retro gamer I don't even have a PC good enough to run the thing haha but nevertheless I've been drooling over all the videos CD Projekt Red have been releasing on youtube lately. Eg just look at the amazing views of the huge city in this one! Over the last few months they’ve been doing a really good behind the scenes series called ‘Night City Wire’ with heaps of amazing new gameplay footage. .
  7. Finally we now have our first trailer! Super exciting! Footage looks promising but need to see more to judge properly haha! .
  8. Hey guys, Back in the 90s I used to muck around with Doom 2 and Civilization 2 modding but never finished any of my projects, but in recent years I've been getting back into it (call it can early midlife crisis lol) and released a GZDoom enhanced version of my old Star Trek Doom level and also a new Quest for Glory IV - 3D Hexen mod too. Much to my surprise both got a lot of media attention with the QFG4-3D one in particular getting coverage on Rock Paper Shotgun and in PC Gamer Magazine which was awesome. The great response inspired me to also get back into my old Civilization 2 editing as well (also 20 years too late lol). Why am I posting about this here in a place full of my fellow Dune and C&C fans? Well after months working on a huge Heroes of Might & Magic 2 Civ2 scenario I decided to turn my attention over to one of my other favourite franchises for some more fun Civ2 scenarios, the Command & Conquer and Red Alert universe! I started coming up with some pretty crazy ideas for huge Red Alert 2 Siege of New York scenario where you’ll be battling it out in city streets between huge sky scrapers however despite learning a lot from working on the HoMM2 scenario I wasn’t quite game enough to start that just yet. I’d also been thinking about a dark and moody scenario set in the C&C Tiberium universe and noticed that a fellow named Wonx2150 had already made a scenario in that universe but just hadn’t really done any proper graphics for it so I decided to take the easier route and remaster his Command & Conquer Africa scenario first to build up more experience before taking on the big Red Alert 2 scenario. I created a ModDB page for the project with dev diaries covering stages of development. Figured I’d post them here too so here’s the first two! Stay tuned for dev diaries for the Red Alert 2 scenario here in the future too! In this first dev diary I look at changing Civ2’s terrain and cities to look like C&C2 as well as importing some cool new units. C&C Dev Diary 01 – New terrain & units for the Civilization 2 – Command & Conquer Scenario: https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-command-conquer-scenario/news/new-terrain-units In the second dev diary I ask for some fan input and finish off importing all the new C&C unit graphics. C&C Dev Diary 02 – Finishing all terrain & units for the Civilization 2 – Command & Conquer Scenario: https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-command-conquer-scenario/news/finishing-all-terrain-units
  9. Have you guys seen these yet? god it looks cool.. please be good please be good please be good https://imgur.com/gallery/oJLKbrg I think they're taken from this Vanity fair article which has a couple more pics and some info https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2020/04/a-first-look-at-timothee-chalamet-in-dune
  10. I joined years ago but forgot to post in the welcome thread haha! I'm Blake. I run a C&C tribute website and Youtube Channel. I also have a Dune website and Youtube too. I play a lot of OpenRA these days, sometimes at LAN parties with my old mates. I enjoy keeping up with the C&C, RA and Dune modding scene and all the cool stuff fans make for the original games.
  11. Like I said over PM there is NO coding for this trick. I'm NOT using the insert code box either. I can't even access the bb or html code here. I just embed the video on another site and then copy and paste the finished product over to here. Personally I use my wordpress blog but there are plenty of forums out there that support youtube embedding that you could edit an old post of yours and stick a video in it, then highlight with your mouse (the posted video, not the code) to copy and paste to here.
  12. Any of the pros played this crazy custom map before and got any tips? Using Red Alert 1 faction buildings and units you have to survive an ONSLAUGHT on monsters from Doom, Aliens, War of the World and C&C itself. It's impossible with 1 player as your AI allies are too stupid to survive so you need 3 buddies. But even then it's so friggin hard. We could beat the map on easy mode but on easy mode you don't get the cool alien crash landing and war of the worlds walkers. Reducing the spawn eggs down to one didn't seem to help either haha. I don't know how to contact the guy who made it so I can't ask him either lol! Map link: https://resource.openra.net/maps/22579 Map Video:
  13. Saw your PM before I saw this so I answered there.
  14. Hey guys, Thought I'd show people something cool if they haven't seen it already. I'm sure everyone knows about OpenRA here. Some may even know about the 3rd Party Red Alert 2 mod for it that sadly went pretty much inactive over the last couple of years. Well now thankfully another team have taken over and are creating a new version of the RA2 mod called Romanov's Vengeance! Despite is not being officially released yet I managed to get my hands on a copy and try it with friends at a LAN party. None of us are very good players and very frustratingly my 2 recordings suffered OBS audio recording issues. I've dubbed in some of the sounds & music at the beginning to soften the blow but yeah.. big apologies especially to the RV devs for not showing off your mod is the best way possible! Nevertheless the games were pretty action packed and we had a ton of fun playing it. Really really good!!! Game 1 - Soviet OpenRA RA2 RV game on the cool naval Path Beyond map: Game 2 - Allied OpenRA RA2 RV game on the awesome Powder Keg island city map:
