Improved desert.mix / pal for RA

Recommended Posts

I think I had an earlier posting on this issue, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

So I have improved the existing desert.mix for RA featuring the original C&C desert tileset. I would be very happy to see it in the official RA Online package.

I also had that idea, but I would go even further:

There are some different colors who got the same colour index during conversion of the images from TD to RA palette, e.g. there was a loss of information and quality of the theatre files itself. So it might be necessary to convert all (at least many) theatre files again with an edited palette to get a visible result...

Too, I would try to change more colors (as much as possible), e.g. I'd use the whole fire palette (colors #16 - 31 in desert.pal) from TD as some colors are used for terrain too. At all, You have to check how far you can change the palette before you decrease quality other images, e.g. sidebar icons etc.

Why not? This makes absolutely no sense.

It makes plenty of sense. People don't want Red Alert Tschokky edition.

Actually people LOVE playing "Tschokky edition" as the devs included the cave, barren and jungle tilesets which I made, so I'm starting to think that you have absolutely no idea about what you are talking. So replacing the TS desert with the original desert should not be an issue, since it's 100% compatible. If you would like to play further with the TS desert, that should be up to you, but that is not the desert tileset that should be in the official release.

"They don't wanna come play red alert for nostalgia" - maybe yes, maybe no. Maybe they should change all other tilesets for you :)

"no need to force changes on to people" - as I said before, I made jun, bar, cav, and I didn't force anything :) so I think you are out of the line here.

you only changed the .pal?

If you removed or added some shps then it would be tricky to update, need to figure out a good way for it

Yes, I have modified 3 terrain-related colors in the palette which do not affect the icons, unit and ore shps.

Shps modified are:
- trees
- bibs
- MSLO/HBOX (+MAKEs)

Added tiles from C&C desert tileset:
- dark patches
- impassable bushes
- original desert rivers ('compatible' with other river tiles)

They don't wanna come play red alert for nostalgia only for it to look like a different game. which is what happens very quickly with very minor changes. some people want upgrades and that is still possible if they want it so ya... no need to force changes on to people.

Maybe you don't understand what Tschokky did here - Desert in RA actually is nothing official from Westwood but a fan-made mod somebody made 5 years ago. Tschokky just did improvements to it to get it closer to the original desert theatre from TD, that's all.

      Good day Comrades 😃
       
      About:
      The intention of this mode is to make some rebalance and make AI more agressive thus skirmish mode more fun. Of course it is possible to use in multiplayer(both players must install this mode on the same version of game).
       
      New units\Structures:
      - Soviets now have Commando instead of Tanya(she is more Allied afterall)
      - Chnged skin of Light Tank (by AchromicWhite)
      - Changed skin of Tesla tank (by Nyerguds)
      - Allied now have Badger bomber and Airfields (it feels wrong that they have no Aiplains) to make it work I had to remove Yak plane from Soviets(no pitty)
       
      Changes to existing units:
      - All allied units gained +5-10% HP, exept Artillery +100% HP (IMHO vanilla Allied units are too weak)
      - Medium tank have mg90 machine gun as secondary weapon (to be more effective against infantry, all tanks have macineguns afterall)
      - Units roket incresed danage to troopers: Bazooka, Destroyer, Longbow helicopter, Phase tank (it feels wrong that rockets cant kill infantry after 1-3 shots)
      - Mine layer mines increased damage
      - All useless buildings like fakes, barbwire fence, small power plant were removed
      - Some units were removed: Jeep, Radar jam, Mobile gap generator, Aircraft carrier(I hope some one who builds new skins for RA can build a really nice big Aircraft ship)
      - Prerequsites of almost all units were removed ( faster search in the build list )
      - Many other small changes I really dont remember everything 😃
       
      Gameplay changes:
      - Increased speed of ore growth and its cost (more money more units can be build = more fun)
      - Increased build ratio of aircrafts for AI (their air attaks are very massive now)
      - Paratroopers now 10 instead of 5 (with 10 troopers you can do some damage)
      - Parabombs now have 2 bombers and 6 bombs (vanilla 1 and 5)
      - To capture building you need only 1 engineer (sometimes AI send an engineer to your base and now this action has a meaning)
      - Increased crates quantity (wich allows AI randomly pick up different nice things like MCV or Nuke more often)
      - Nuke damage increased by 300% (now its real Nuke not a puff)
      - Other options to change AI behaviour to be more agressive
       
      Install:
      Unzip to game folder, overwrite old files(dont forget to make a copy of original files before this!)
       
      Have fun. Post comments. Cheers
