Welcome mappers, players, modders and other people that are interested in mapping Tiberian Sun. If you want to know how to make your own maps, you are at the right place to do so! I am LucasSK (creator of [TIBERIUM RESURRECTION]) and I am mapping Tiberian Sun for over than a year and a half now. When I was learning how to do stuff and making my first projects, I encountered many problems with too little answers, so I thought it would be great idea to share my skills, knowledge and summarize FinalSun here. And now, without further ado, lets get into it!
NOTE: This tutorial is made based on Temperate Theater of the map (not Snow).
(Download FinalSun here: https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/6720-final-sun-complete-fixed/)

Now, I would split these objects into 3 categories: Objects, Overlay, Ground, Other, so you can understand their features.
Object - Characteristic / Description: They can be blocked by other Objects, aren't Overlay & Special and most of them are "3D" such as Vehicles, Infantry, Buildings, Trees, etc. Some of them are selectable by double-left-clicking on them and they are draggable by left-click-and-hold. Can be deleted by using Delete objects.
Overlay - Characteristic / Description: Everything in Overlay & Special, can't be selected, often has weird field position (overlapping or near the edge of one field (not centered)). Can be deleted using Erase overlay.
Ground - Characteristic / Description: Mostly "2D" items on the ground, on which you can place other Objects or Overlays + Water, Firestorm Defence. Can be deleted using Clear.
Other - Characteristic / Description: Items you can't see in-game such as Waypoints, Celltags, etc. OTHER
Vehicles, Aircraft, Infantry and Buildings have their "options" when you double-click on them. They are pretty much self-explanatory.
File - Interface with map file(s) (save, open, create your maps through here)
Edit - This is heart of triggers and programmed actions, that happen throughout map. I will talk about them in a while.
Terrain - Tools, that help you manipulate with terrain (same as 9 images / symbols below)
Map tools - Few useful, but dangerous Map tools.
SunEdit 2k - Link to SunEdit 2k (I personally do not recommend this tool).
Online - Links to a few (not) important websites.
Options - Change some settings to personalize FinalSun and turn on / off some mapping tools.
Help - Tips & Tricks related to mapping.
Brush size - Change amount of affected tiles by your "brush" (works for OVERLAY and GROUND category).
Other images / symbols are pretty much self-explanatory, when you aim cursor at them.
Undo - Undoes your last action. (works for OVERLAY and GROUND category).
Redo - Redoes your last action. (works for OVERLAY and GROUND category).
Copy - Copies part of map, which you select.
Copy whole map - Copies whole map.
Paste - Pastes selection.
Paste centered - Pastes selection in the middle of your map.
Map - Edit basic map properties.
Basic - Edit basic map settings.
Special flags - Edit more map settings.
Lighting - Change light in the map. You can make darker maps or lighter maps.
Singleplayer settings - Edit these only and only if making Singleplayer map, but they still lack purpose.
Houses - Create and edit Houses (sides) for your map.
Local variables - 1 or 0 "switch". Used in Triggers and Scripts.
Trigger editor - Tells AI when to execute what kind of action.
Tag editor - Tags for Triggers. In most cases, you shouldn't edit these.
Scripts - Tells AI what to do with Taskforce.
Taskforces - Groups of certain units, that AI would build in order to create "strikeforce".
Teams - Merges Scripts and Taskforces together and defines some more of their options.
AI Triggers - Too complicated even for me 😕
AI Trigger enabling - Too complicated even for me 😕
INI editing - Edit map's .ini file directly.
Basically: Scripts tells AI WHAT to do, Taskforces tells AI WITH WHOM to do it, Teams MERGE them together and Triggers tells AI WHEN / UNDER WHICH CIRCUMSTANCES to do it. Let's break-down Triggers into detail:
NOTE: Some triggers may not work in certain situations.

Took a while, but I finally finished a full conversion mod for the original Red Alert.
Able Archer is to portray how Red Alert would have played out in the 1980s. I tried to make it as realistic as possible with the limited engine.
Original campaign works, as do most of the extra missions. Ant missions are strange, as ant units are used for regular buildable units.
C&C Red Alert Able Archer is confirmed to work with C&C The First Decade with TFD 1.03 rev4.
Red Alert's version should be 3.03. It may work with other versions of the game, but may encounter bugs.
-Simply unzip the archive into your Red Alert folder. Make sure to backup existing EXPAND2.mix, hires1.mix, rules.ini, and aftrmath.ini.
PATCH 1.1 has been released, please scroll down.
Game crashes when loading more than one game. Simply restart the game and you can load another save.
Transport Helicopters will attempt to leave the map when Spetsnaz board them. This is hard coded.

(28) [07:08 PM] * Error: robskate___ is not online!
Trying to join multiplayer game of Red Alert. Lobby window opens, but I am stuck with connecting.
* Connecting... (takes up to 1minute)
No matter how long I wait, nothing happens. And I get no hint why connection is not successful. I have gone though windows firewall settings, and even disabled firewall completely. Still no luck. App can download game files normally, and I can also play skirmish with no issues.
How to get connected to lobby? Or where to look next?
Platform: Win 10 running on vmware fusion on top of OSX.
