Simple Mod Idea / Request

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i have a simple mod idea, but no matter how many hours I've wasted I can't figure out how to make it a 100% reality. I'm hoping one of you are a little interested in my idea, because I know some of you guys are so experienced can just snap your fingers and make it work like magic.

The goal is to not balance the sides of c&c red alert but to improve the game with out having a huge change of its original gameplay:

 

The plans (so far)  are (all the points with a ":)" means I've been able to accomplish) :

:)1. add the supply truck with 4 passengers to both sides in multiplayer games, mainly so that the soviets have a ground transport.

:)2. add phase transport and helicarrier to both sides. (after all the soviets did steal the phase transport.)

:)3.add the chinook to both sides (no reason way not, because the allies use them in the campaign)

:)4. (as radical as it may sound) add dogs and kennel to allies (what if a multiplayer game involves allies vs. allies. How will they stop the other player's spies? (I know human players don't need them but it makes it seem happier.)(red alert 2 has dogs for both sides.)

5. Make Tanya an allies only unit and give the soviets Volkov from the campaign. (and somehow make it so you can only train one tanya or volkov. who ever heard of two tanyas?) Volkov would just as powerful and as weak as tanya just to keep the balancing of that.

:)(maybe)6. Maybe... just maybe increase the "A bombs" power of destroying vehicles and maybe increase its range of damage.

:)6=7. Make it so paratroopers come with 10 riflemen. What's the point of having 5 little guys with BB guns every 17 minutes? They're useless.

8. Give the allies the ability to have paratroopers and parabombs without the airfield or jet and fighter plane. Or (if its possible) have a chinook come off the edge of the map with reinforcements. (paratroopers with the "parachutes")

So far I'm stuck on point 5 and 8.

I've added a new building from: http://ra.afraid.org/html/downloads/structures.html

called: Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT)  thumbnail image

I plan on making it a building necessary to have badger related items (the paratroopers and parabombs)

I don't know... somehow make the reinforcements and parabomb "super weapons" available through the ATCT only and that the soviets require the ATCT for the spy plane and for making the airfield and aircraft. The allies would use the ATCT for reinforcements (by parachute or chinook) and parabombs only.

I have edited the spawn.xdp like this:

*The structure:

; new thing
[FCOM]
Name=Air Traffic Control
Image=atrc
Prerequisite=dome
Strength=600
Armor=concrete
TechLevel=5
Sight=4
Owner=allies,soviets
Cost=1500
Points=85
Power=-100
Bib=yes
Capturable=true
Crewed=yes

*The badger:

; Badger bomber
[BADR]
Prerequisite=fcom
Primary=ParaBomb
Strength=60
Armor=light
TechLevel=-1
Sight=0
Speed=16
Owner=allies,soviet
Cost=10
Points=20
ROT=5
Ammo=5
Passengers=10

*The soviet airfield:

; airstrip
[AFLD]
Prerequisite=dome,fcom
Strength=1000
Armor=heavy
TechLevel=5
Sight=7
Owner=soviet
Cost=600
Points=70
Power=-30
Capturable=true
Crewed=yes

How Do I give the new building the "characteristics" of the airfield pertaining to the paratroopers and parabombs? No matter what I've tried I can't make the new building "cough up" paratroopers or anything.

What do you all think about the whole idea? Are there any changes you think should be made or added to my idea?

      A very long time ago I found a Russian website with a RA1 TC called Third Revolution. It's a stand-alone total conversion with new campaigns and a setting unrelated to the C&C universe -- rather, it tells the story of a post-1991 restoration of the Soviet Union and its struggle against Capitalist adversaries. The author had problems with the black/transparent colour in the palette but otherwise it was pretty solid all-in-all.
      Back then I downloaded the Russian version, but later forgot about that TC until recently (had to ask around to remember the title). Anyway, the Russian version of the TC is available from The Red Alert Archive, however the developer's page also lists an English version (thirden.rar) among downloads, as well as a music pack (scores_full.rar). Supposedly, these were hosted at http://ra.afraid.org/thirdrev/, but the Wayback Machine does not have the respective files, and apparently they were at some point removed, for whatever reason.
      I was wondering if anyone still has these files archived somewhere? Also, it seems that the TC is based on Aftermath 2.02, would it be possible to upgrade to 3.03 Beta?

      Running CnCNet server using systemd (Linux x64)
       
      wget downloads.cncnet.org/tunnel.sh sh tunnel.sh 200 "Unnamed Server" If you're unsure what linux distro to choose, just take the latest version of Ubuntu
       
       
      Using the above method you can run both CnCNet servers as a service and they will continue to run even after the server restarted.
       
      Alternatively you can also run the servers individually (see below):
       
       
       
       
       
      New Server (All Games)
       
       
      Linux x64 example:
      wget -c https://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server.tgz -O - | tar -xz nohup ./cncnet-server --name "My cool server" --maxclients 200 --port 50001 --portv2 50000 > cncnet-server.log 2>&1 & Linux ARM
       
       
      Windows:
      On XP, Vista and 7 make sure .NET 4.0 is installed: https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=17113
      Download the server and start it: http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server-gui.exe
       
       
      Note: Servers are chosen automatically by CnCNet and are only used in case 2 players fail to establish a Peer-To-Peer connection. Yuri's Revenge players can select a specific server via the advanced settings while hosting a game room.
       
       
       
       
       
      Old Server (Yuris Revenge only)
       
       
      Linux (Ubuntu) example:
      sudo apt-get install default-jre wget http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-tunnel.exe nohup java -jar cncnet-tunnel.exe -name "My cool server" -maxclients 200 -port 50000 -headless > cncnet-tunnel.log 2>&1 &  
       
      Windows:
      Download the server and start it: http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-tunnel.exe
       
       
      Note:  To use a specific server you'll have to select it via the advanced settings while hosting a game room.
       
       
       
       
       
      The servers will not show up instantly on the website, it can take up to 4 hours

      CnCNET is great, and since RA source code has been released this is a huge step in improving the game and adding nice juicy features that allow us to enjoy the game we love.
      Add a replay system, maybe as an option as saving a replay could add more lag to games.
      Fix bug where you can ally someone who is trying to Engi your building which prevents it from being captured
      New .ini keywords, this would allow for more control over making maps of all types from nurple to Defense maps
      I'll list a few keyword suggestions
      Ability to remove darkness crate as random chance Chrono (superweapon) Crate Size of Nukes/Demo Trucks explosions Force Ore Regrowth on (ignores lobby setting "Ore Regenerates") Crusher Flag for vehicles Helicopter Firing Delay Auto Attack Flag (Tanya for example) Build Speed Multiplier (per unit/building) New Triggers New blank units if modders want to add them to maps. (Like Ferrets Tiberian Alert mod)

      I told you my scroll was broken and it was. I played the entire match holding right click to move across the screen. I think you think I b.s.'d you to get you to commit or something. That is not at all the case.
      This was on the CNC remastered ladder.

      Current version of Red Dawn is Red Dawn 2014
       
      Last updated 5-29-20
       
       
      Red Dawn 2014 is standalone like 2013 and still uses Iran Patch/Portable RA that added Hires and better compatibility for Vista and forward systems. Red Dawn 2014 dosen't differ to much from Red Dawn 2013 when it comes to single player missions. The most noteable change is Nod now uses secondary colors for all missions. Five new mission added and one fan made are now included in the game. Jungle theater by Tschokky added and used for five of the new missions.
       
      Red Dawn Online has been merged with Red Dawn 2014. This mean online play on CnCNet 5 (old CnCNet 4 has been removed). Aftermath Game option is now Classic C&C option and when turned on the game will only use C&C95 units and buildings. The exceptions are the Missile Silo, Ship Yard, Gunboats and Tranport. The Missile Silo is needed as it is the only way for a Nuke to be made. The Ship Yard, Gunboats and Tranport are need for some RA1 maps most notable "Docklands (Medium)".
       
      RAED (Map/Scenario Editor) has been updated to the version edited by Iran to use all 6 theaters. At this time the CnCNet 5 ra95-spawn.exe dosen't support the Jungle theater but I have updated the CnCNet 5 lobby's map preview generator so when/if CnCNet 5 updates the ra95-spawn.exe to use the Jungle theater things are ready to go.
       
      System Requirements
      Windows 2000, XP, Vista or 7. Launcher and configuration tool require the .Net 2.0 framework. I think you could run on Win95 to ME with out the Launcher and configuration tool by starting the game from the RA95.exe. You may be able to get it to work on Linux and Mac with tweaks. PortableRA's Linux and Mac tabs should be able to help http://iran.cnc-comm.com/ra/

      Old Red Dawn 2012
       
       
      I'm keeping support for Red Dawn 2012 as there is small change of systems out there that won't work with the Iran patch setup. Also it is a good source for modders looking for C&C 95 building and units that are already converted for use in RA1.
       
      System Requirements
      Windows 95, 98 2000, Me, XP, Vista or 7. You may be able to get it to work on Linux with tweaks. I tested Red Dawn on Win 7 however if it is not working on Vista or 7 you can try ddraw.dll by Hifi http://hifi.iki.fi/cnc-ddraw/#download has download link and configuration.
