Recommended Posts

 

Hello

I want to know if I can make any  new units on red alert? such as new types of tanks or structures?

This is possible for offline-games or mods, with limitations. For online games, you have to modify existing units.

Iran made a tutorial on this,  but I cannot find this thread anymore.

You also need a special RA95.exe for this. In the CNCnet version the possibility of adding units is removed because it caused out-of-sync-errors or something like this.

 

I added support for adding new UnitTypes (vehicles) to the game, they internally are setup like the Medium Tank but you can use RULES.INI keys to configure the newly added vehicle. I'll have to add more useful RULES.INI keys for vehicles in the future. Example of adding a new vehicle called 'DERP':

[UnitTypes]
0=DERP
..

; 2TNK medium tank clone
[DERP]
Prerequisite=weap
Primary=90mm
Strength=400
Armor=heavy
TechLevel=6
Sight=5
Speed=8
Owner=allies
Image=2TNK ; use 2TNK.shp and 2TNKICON.shp instead of DERP.shp and DERPICON.shp
Cost=800
Points=40
ROT=5
Tracked=yes
Crewed=yes

 

Those are straightforward to add but it requires a lot of time, I first need to setup a system for every type to extend them and to clear the extended memory when loading savegames (with extra check for 3.03 savegames), clear memory when loading a scenario and I need to get a system working to extend TechnoTypeClass memory for every derived type.

Anyway, I've added support for adding new infantry (set up like E1 internally), buildings (set up like ATEK internally), aircrafts (set up like HELI internally) and vessels (set up like DD internally). Adding new vessels at the moment isn't practical as drawing the turrets on them is hard-coded based on their ID, e.g. it checks if the vessel has the ID for the Cruiser to draw the Cruiser turrets, etc.

[VesselTypes]
0=DD2
1=DD3

[AircraftTypes]
0=HII2
1=HII3

[BuildingTypes]
0=HERP
1=DERP

[InfantryTypes]
0=FLAM
1=OFFI

      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

      All Medals were reset and a new map was created, please check the new rules below
       
      Rules:
      1. Settings = Color: Yellow, Country: Germany, Speed: 7
      2. You must destroy all enemy tanks before the time runs out
      3. You need to win using hotkeys like in the video shown below (ctrl shift etc..)
      4. Stacking/fooling the AI is not allowed - Do not park any tanks next to the kennels to destroy/block them on purpose (no force fire etc..)
      5. Your screen resolution must be 1280x width or below and 720x height or below (1024*768, 1920x1080 etc... are not allowed)
      6. 1 trusted spectator must watch you playing the map (See names below)
      7. The spectator must host the game room and not the player
      8. The game must run at an acceptable speed, laggy games don't count
       
       
      Spectators: robskate, Bravo, At0m1, FunkyFr3sh, Lauta, D1GA, Commander, Lovehandles, Ferret, ra168uk, lordy
       
      Note to Spectators: After the game you must check the resolution of the player in the score screen to ensure the player did not use a too high resolution. When the ready button was clicked there should be no cheat warning.
