Make red alert 2 a 3D game

Recommended Posts

Hi i was thinking about modding red alert 2 to make it a 3d game. I basicaly want to get rid of the classic 2d isometric rigid view of the classic cncs. Basically not changing anything but the view. what i want is an added feature. You may use the  classic view but u can change perspective. 

I just want to know if i ever wanted to do it what would be the process. Is it a thing that even a modding noob like myself could do or is just too complicated.?

This is not possible with the original game. I guess there is a RA2 mod for RA3 or something like that.

Yeah, you'll need a much more modern engine. I'm not a big modder, but from what I've seen, Starcraft 2's modding capabilities are pretty good for rts mods.

      I want to make a Map that is totally Symmetrical.
      The thought had occurred, to try to use a Bitmap as an Import.
      Problem is, how do I export the Map as a Bitmap to then copy and flip it and so on.
      Also, would this even work, or would I confuse FA2.
      I just want to speed up Map Making, so is there a quicker way?

      I have spent several hours looking into making Mines that Spawn Gems.
      Based on how popular the idea is, but how difficult it can be to find the information, I'm putting this here.
      In my search for this, I've found several ideas, but no solid guaranties saying that something definitely works.
      Important Notes:
      Take into consideration, that I'm making a Map with Modified INI Data, and not an actual MOD.
      The reason for this is due to the Ore Mine Locations having Sand, and Ore being difficult to visually see.
      Also, the Ore spawns too slowly for the Map, meaning matches end in Stagnant Out Of Money scenarios.
      This means that players are throwing Para-Drops at one another to try and gain the advantage.
      The Match always Disconnects before a winner is found.
      Idea 01 - Changing Ore into Gems
      I tried the idea of calling 'Tiberiums' different names.
      So taking 'Riparius' and swapping it with 'Cruentus' and this yielded no results.
      So I'm currently exploring the idea of Taking Ore and redefining its Image so that it looks like Gems.
      Problem with this is, I'm making a Custom Map, so this is not likely to work so well either.
      Idea 02 - Making a Dummy Object/Unit/Building that can Spawn Gems

      This is the Code that was mentioned in the post.
      [building] ActiveAnim=dummy [dummy] LoopCount=-1 TrailerAnim=gemspawn [gemspawn] MaxXYVel=25.0 MinZVel=25.0 Elasticity=0.0 Bouncer=yes TiberiumSpawnType=GEM01 TiberiumSpreadRadius=3 ;0-9 possible The issue with this is, to do this requires a MOD, and as such can't be done in a Map directly*.
      *That is assuming that you're not using additional tools outside of FA2.
      If you were really clever and extremely determined, you could in theory take this Data and manually add it into a Map.
      Though that is a lot of work, and may yield results that are open to change as CnCNet RA2YR is Updated.
      So that's what I found relating to the Topic, but not much of an answer as far as Map Creation goes.
      If/When an Admin of CnCNet reads this, I would propose the idea of CnCNet Staff placing some items into the general Updates.
      Effectively, to allow Modified Maps to have more variety, it would be nice if specific assets were available out-of-the-box.
      For example: Modified Sniper Animations (Sandbags) and Tech-Building Buildup Animations.
      While normally, these would have no effect in Normal Maps, this would allow Modified Maps to have appropriate Animation Data.
      Also things like Cameos and new Units would be nice, again inactive in Vanilla Maps, but available for Modified Map Creators to play with.

      Hi, Ive a problem, Im looking at some old stuff. So I have FA2YR1.2 and I have the TX2. The TX 2 gives me the files marble.mix FAdata and FALanguague. Ive placed these into my Final AlertYR folder, overwriting the originals, (Don't worry I saved them first). However its still not reading, and the picture below is what im getting, what am I missing?
      Now if I place the lunarmd from the TX into the RA2 folder, it then reads the new Terrain, however although the dropdown list is there, the Terrain is still absent. Is this because the map was written with the TX 1, and the updated version has moved the list order?

      This issue appeared shortly after a windows 10 update. The current settings were working fine beforehand.
      When I start a match, the game shows up in the top left of my screen and covers only about 1/4 of the screen. I can still see the desktop in the background.
      Please see this video that shows the problem:
