The economy in Tiberian Alert is a little different than what you're used to. Refineries no longer carry any sort of money capacity. This means if you're wanting to increase your economy, make sure you're expanding your Silo production as well!

posted image Silo: The Silo is the only structure that has any sort of money capacity. Make sure to make plenty when you start and as the game goes on! Depending on your influx of income, you can vary the amount of silos you have.

Static defense is very powerful in Tiberian Alert. All defensive structures have the ability to shoot over walls. You can easily defend a position of the map with a set of Turrets and some Concrete Walls in front of them. Use this to take control of positions, and obviously defend your base! Use a swarm of units, siege units, or air to break defensive positions.

posted image Tesla Coil: The Corps's Tesla Coil is the strongest static defensive structure in the game! With walls, it can hold off any choke point with ease.

Infantry are the core fighters on the battlefield. They are the backbone of the Corps and Talon army in Tiberian Alert. From Minigunners to Shock Troopers, they will be there. In Tiberian Alert, infantry units cannot be crushed. This offers them more versatility compared to what we've seen previously. Especially in the right hands, a hand-full of infantry can be devastating. Although this change may seem powerful, there are plenty of ways to deal with infantry. You can fight infantry head on with your own infantry, or use anti-infantry vehicles such as Rangers, APCs, Flame Tanks, and siege units. To be safe, it's recommended to have a strong infantry force before transitioning into pure vehicles. Tanks by themselves against infantry alone are not great unless backed by support units. Although if you have enough vehicles, infantry are a cake-walk. Infantry in Tiberian Alert should not be underestimated, but on the flip-side; there are many ways to deal with them effectively. As always, be smart and use positioning to your advantage.

Siege units in Tiberian Alert are the main support units for both the Corps and Talon. Ground siege units have a range of 11, while naval siege units have a range of 20. Both respectively have the longest ranged weapons in the game, even longer range than a Tesla Coil. Siege units can be used to attack turtling players who sit behind static defense, and they can as well dispose of large groups of infantry and light vehicles. Although very powerful, both ground and naval siege units are very vulnerable to air attacks and heavily armored vehicles, as well as coordinated infantry attacks. It is recommended to not leave these units unguarded as they're very easy to pick off when by themselves. Very much so a class-cannon.

ydaec4P.png V2 Rocket Launcher: The Corps's V2 has a powerful single shot missile which deals AOE fire damage on impact. Very effectively against groups of infantry, light vehicles, and buildings.

Hawks in the sky. Air units have plenty of utility throughout the whole game. Unlike siege units, air units have much more mobility than any other units in the game, and can destroy key targets such as GPS Tech Centers, War Factories, and other structures and units very quickly. Despite their mobility, they can be zoned out by AA Guns and other anti-air. Large groups of air units can be a very serious threat as they can wipe out structures or units in the blink of an eye. Chinooks, an air transport vehicle, can also transport infantry behind enemy lines.

posted image Yak Strider: The Corps's Yak is capable of dealing heavy damage to armored vehicles as well as pick off key structures.

Tanks in Tiberian Alert are quite different than what most people are used to. The main battle tanks of both the Corps and Talon are fairly slow, yet pack a punch as well as having heavy armor and quite a bit of HP. Tanks are fantastic for soaking up damage as well as dealing damage. They're very well rounded, but obviously their speed suffers compared to other units such as a Rocket Tank or a Ranger. The pure brute force of main battle tanks are a force to reckon with. Both the Corps Light Tank and the Talon Medium Tank are very powerful and should not be neglected for their slow speed. Tanks should definitely be considered when conducting to make a well balanced army.

xAuBwdV.png Mammoth Tank: The Talon Mammoth Tank is very powerful against any sort of ground unit. Although it lacks any sort of anti-air attack, so make sure to support your Mammoth Tanks!

Okay. I basically got most of the thread complete. I will be adding some stuff like basic build orders for both factions and maybe some screenshots of the maps that we're using currently.

 

If you have any questions. Feel free to ask!

A map based mod. Thats thinking out side of the box.

 

Thanks! I liked the idea of just getting the map and playing. I totally saw Red Alert being a better game (in my opinion) just by changing some stats around and some tech which is what I did.

 

I really feel like Red Alert has a problem with tank fever. You can't build anything else otherwise you lose. That's sort of the main purpose of this and not only to add some elements from Tiberian Dawn such as slow vehicles and so forth.

 

Also if someone in game would like to play it. They can simply have someone host the game and they can download it through there and play immediately.

Really? Warcraft 3 has done that for ages, with things like DOTA and Tower Defense maps.

I know. I'm just saying the idea's been done before, and given RA's map-modding capabilities, it's not such a far stretch. After all, Westwood already did similar things with their crazy civilian map and their lunar gravity map.

Certainly inspired by BS... here's my map idea... I call it. "Fields of Awe" (lol, get it, awe, ore? xD)

 

And another... Seas of Awe (AAAAA HAHAHAHA)

 

But seriously, you should make both of these.

A quick patch experimenting with the economy. Remember that these changes can easily be reverted. This is simply for testing purposes only.

 

If the harvester has a full load of ore, it will dump 700 credits while if it were gems. It would be 1400 credits.

 

Patch v0.98 Hotfix 2 - August 23, 2012

 

General

  • Ore value increase to 25 from 19.
  • Gem value increased to 50 from 30.
