Patch 2.2.13 released!
YR Red-Resurrection is back baby, with a swathe of new units, Confederation buffs, new maps, AI improvements, graphical improvements, bug fixes and more! Check out a brief trailer below, showcasing some of the changes.
 


And that's just skimming the surface! To go into a bit more detail, let's take a look one of the coolest additions - the Vandal Scraptank.
 

trkQdJSl.jpg


A new tier 4 'monster tank' for Confederation, this beast is only available from a support power attached to the Revolutionary Headquarters. It only costs $1500 to spawn 3 of these bad boys, but before they can become too powerful they have to earn some kills! With each veterancy level the tank attaches more armour and weaponry, eventually becoming a formidable weapon that can turn the tides of battle.
 
Furthermore, navy has seen a number of additions to make that lacklustre area of combat more interesting. Both factions now get repair ships - the Rig and Lifeboat - as well as helicopter carriers - the War Turtle and Crocodile. This to add another layer of combat, where anti-aircraft can be a requirement and to help mixing of different unit types.

Moreover the Gunboat has been replaced with the Minisub, making early game engagements potentially more interesting. All pre-existing vessels have had balance adjustments as well.

Of course there are more new maps as always, ranging from 1v1 to 3v3. Here are a few examples:

Of course there are many balance changes too, bug fixes and so on! Here's an overview of the entire patch:

Big Features
  • Addition: Minisub. Replaces the Gunboat for the Allies. A small submarine, good against light ships.
  • Additions: Rig and Lifeboat, for the Allies and Soviets respectively. Repair ships available at the Naval Yard.
  • Additions: War Turtle and Crocodile Heli-hauler, for the Allies and Soviets respectively. Available at the Naval Yard with either Airforce Command HQ or Air Strategy Centre. A long range attack helicopter carrier, good vs enemy vessels, structures and off-shore bombardment.
  • Additions: Charge Thrower and Torpedo Tower, for the Allies and Soviets respectively. Available with the Naval Yard, these two are defensive structures for use on water, with good range and sensors, intended to better protect the shore allowing fleets to spend their time elsewhere.
  • Addition: Vandal Invasion, support power for Confederation at the Revolutionary Headquarters. For $1500 credits it spawns 3 Vandal Scraptanks at the HQ, which are quick anti-tank vehicles. Their speciality is the ability to upgrade themselves with each veterancy level, gaining strength, firepower and anti-air / anti-infantry rockets as well! Furthermore they can enter Resistance Tunnels, allowing for powerful strikes anywhere on the battlefield.
  • AI updates including nerfs to support power usage and Chronosphere support.
  • New interactable natural features such as Destructible Rocks and Tornadoes (map specific).
  • 9 all new maps for skirmish and multiplayer.
  • Reworked over a dozen existing maps for more interesting strategies and improved balance.
  • Tonnes of significant balance adjustments and bug fixes.

The patch can be downloaded and manually installed, if you are unable to use the client updater for whatever reason.

Patch 2.2.12 released!

Four months of development, but hopefully worth the wait! Feel like I've said this a lot, but 2.2.12 is a big patch. It's main change is the inclusion of a brand new 5-mission campaign for the United States, marking the beginning of Red-Resurrection timeline. Furthermore the campaign features great voice acting and fully animated cutscenes between missions to tell the story in detail! Check out the trailer below.

 

 

The campaign can be found in the singleplayer menu of course, and although it can be played in any order I recommend going through them as listed for the story to make sense! Due to the size of the cutscenes I have put them up as a separate download, but please grab them before playing as they should massively improve the experience (and a lot of work went into them!).

That's not all however. Soviet Russia has received a replacement for the Tupolev, a jet which greatly added to their already potent frontline force. Instead, they receive a support power on T3 with the Air Strategy Control named the Judas Corps.

Judas Corps paradrops in 2 Spetsnaz infantry, equipped with a long range rifle and 'Blackout' EMP charges for use on structures. That is their main use, to sabotage enemy producted by disabling factories. This gives Russia another dimension and unique ability to slow down their enemy with subterfuge.

On top of that there are a bunch of new maps! Here are a few examples:

Of course there are many balance changes too, bug fixes and so on! Here's an overview of the entire patch:

Big Features

  • Added a brand new 5-mission United States campaign, including full voice acting! The US has had enough of Libya's belligerence and launched an invasion with the goal of toppling it's president Hamza al-Sanussi - and thus beginning the Red-Resurrection story.
  • ADDITION: the Judas Corps support power for Soviet Russia. Available at T3 from the Air Strategy Control, it paradrops 2 Spetsnaz special forces equipped with a long range anti-infantry rifle and anti-structure EMP bombs. Capable of disabling enemy structures for 45 seconds at a time. Replaces the Tupolev.
  • 11 all new maps for skirmish and multiplayer.
  • Improvements to several Red Alert 2 campaign missions, making them harder on higher difficulties.
  • Hot new lava tilesets featured on many new and old maps.
  • Reworked existing maps for more interesting strategies and improved balance.
  • Many balance adjustments and bug fixes.

Patch 2.2.11 out now!

It's been a couple of months since the last patch for YR Red-Resurrection and in that time some significant changes have been made. Since the release of 2.2 I have been reworking countries that I felt were lacking, and the last of those was the United Kingdom, who have finally been given the attention they need in this release.
 

kSi2r6mm.jpg


Calling in reinforcements from around the empire, the British Army is bolstered with special units capable of turning the tides of battle. Furthermore they gain the Pintail and Pop Shell, which replaces the Arms Jammer, and the Battle Fortress has been reworked.
 

A6hQYwvm.jpg


Not only have the UK received additions however, Yugoslavia gains the Ironsmith, an infantry equipped to render your tank divisions unstoppable! As always, new maps have been added as well.

If you're interested in how those maps get made you can watch a timelapse of myself creating Close Encounter (2)! Remember to subscribe on YouTube for additional content.
 


Of course there are many balance changes, bug fixes, additional maps and more! Here's an overview of the entire patch:

Big Features
Reworked the United Kingdom, altering existing units and removing and replacing others, including-

  • The Colonial Bureau for the UK on T2. Provides units at intervals depending on your tech tier; the Skitter on T1 - a fast amphibious harassment unit equpped with mines, the Gurkha on T3 - a steadfast versatile soldier and the Wildcat at T4 - a long range anti-unit artillery.
  • The Pintail for the UK. An aircraft available at T3, replaces the Arms Jammer. Attaches a bomb to enemy vehicles that jams their weapons, and the weapons of surrounding vehicles, for 45 seconds.
  • The Pop Shell support power for the UK. Spawns a tank bunker anywhere on the map, allowing you to fortify an area on the fly!
  • The Ironsmith for Yugoslavia. And infantry on T3 who can attach charges to friendly vehicles which double their armour when activated!
  • A new client feature; the Pick Random Map button, available in skirmish and multiplayer. Selects a random map based on the number of participants in the game.
  • 7 all new maps in skirmish and multiplayer.
  • A dozen reworked existing maps for more interesting strategies and improved balance.
  • Many balance adjustments and bug fixes.

Patch 2.2.10 released!

Patch 2.2.10 has been released, this time with the major theme being revitalising naval combat. Two new units have been added for that - the Gunboat and Zhaba - and existing units have been reworked, moved around on the tech tree etc. Hopefully it feels more well structured, chunkier and satisfying to play on the seas.

Europe has also received another dose of adjustments, with the addition of the Quantum Lab and Crackdown power, making them a bit more versatile and less rigid in their playstyle. Screenshots of those changes can be seen below.
 

B8E1rQZm.jpg Uj8Mzmvm.jpg


Big Features

  • REWORKED NAVY, including a new ship for both the Allies and the Soviets as well as rebalanced and reworked existing units for more sensible battles on the seas.
  • NEW CONTENT FOR EUROPE: the Quantum Lab on T2, which now provides the Quantum Leap ability, and Crackdown, a T3 power that equips GIs with riot gear!
  • NEW CONTENT AT THE SECRET LAB: the Magnetron! On T3, it now slows units to a crawl, and attaches a magnetic effect to them further slowing other nearby enemies. A highly useful support unit.
  • Lots of big reworks to existing maps with a navy focus, helping to further flesh out that area of the game.
  • 7 brand new, high quality maps for multiplayer!
  • Updated campaign missions to support the new navy as well as fix a few issues and adjust unit availability.
  • Lots of balance adjustments to existing units and bug fixes.

August Update

The next patch is well underway and possibly the most game-changing yet as it includes alterations to several countries- more on those can be read on the relevant images below.

As well as those, there is certainly more to come, the usual host of balance changes and many new maps.

Community YouTube Content
Lots of people have started uploading multiplayer games of Red-Resurrection. Check out their channels and subscribe to follow for future matches.

Often these videos feature some of the new upcoming content first, so worth a watch if you're interested in seeing how the latest changes play in action, and of course you can always join the Discord channel to get involved yourself!

That's all this update but as always the next patch isn't too far away and should definitely see the mod shape up into something even more complete, polished and fun to play!

Patch 2.2.8 released!
Patch 2.2.8 for YR Red-Resurrection has been released! This one's been somewhat delayed but it has all been for good reasons. In the background, or rather on the discord channel, this patch has been gestating and tested on a weekly basis to include bigger changes than can be achieved in a simple one month patch!

Big Features
  • EUROPEAN COUNTRY REWORK- Chrono Legionnaires have been moved to T3, and Sonic Enforcers moved up to T4, with related balance tweaks. This is to help make Europe slightly easier to combat on T3, as the Sonic Enforcer/Bishop combo was incredibly powerful, but it also provides them with more mobility and versatility earlier on. Chrono Legionnaires were also underused in multiplayer, making them more relevant now. Furthermore, Speedways have been completely removed and instead Warp Nodes now also buff the speed of surrounding units.
  • UNIVERSAL SELF HEAL CHANGE- Thanks to a new feature from AlexB, the developer of Ares, it is now possible for combat to prevent self healing- and that is applied to Red-Resurrection. Now, a unit will not self heal for 10 seconds after taking damage. This is great as it prevents certain units being unkillable in certain situations due to out healing damage, such as a single Rocketeer vs a Crazy Ivan. This affects most units in the mod, so healing may be adjusted in future patches to compensate.
  • TWENTY-TWO BRAND NEW MULTIPLAYER MAPS- many made exclusively for this mod, and all of great quality!
  • And dozens more changes, including many balance adjustments, bug fixes and graphical tweaks.
Here are a few of the new maps.

YR Red-Resurrection 2.2 released!

b15m5K7l.jpg


Soviet invasion confirmed! This is not a drill! YR Red-Resurrection 2.2 is finally here, no joke!

It is by the far biggest update to the mod ever, having taken the last year to develop (to the month), driven largely by the interest and feedback fromt the little discord community that has developed. The original goal was simply to port the mod to the CnCNet 5 client, making it possible to play online again and increase accessibility, but as it went along it resulted in almost totally overhauling the eight countries as well, making them very individual and unique.
 

ir9XDLgm.jpg


Tonnes of work has gone into this and I definitely want to thank the testers and contributors for making it possible and, largely, a fun experience. :p  Particularly a thanks needs to go to Starkku for making this entire thing possible by providing lots of technical support, particularly with the client, and the toolset he has developed.

And now its out!

Features
  • Two factions, the Allies and the Soviets with all new arsenals.
  • Four countries per faction, each with 12-15 unique units, structures and support powers.
  • An entirely rebalanced experience with rapid, dynamic gameplay providing the player with plenty of opportunities for attack.
  • Over 140 new units, structures & support powers (with 75+ added in this patch alone!).
  • Over 300 multiplayer maps and several game modes, including Dead Resurrection - where infantry killed in combat rise from the dead.
  • The vanilla Red Alert 2 campaign ported to work with the additional content of Red-Resurrection.
  • The CnCNet 5 client from rampastring & Starkku, with additional unique features.
  • Also includes an offline manual and map editor!

Soviet Invasion Confirmed
Progress has come to a head on the development of YR Red-Resurrection 2.2, Commander. The Soviets have amassed their armies, the Allies are prepped for war and the world is a powder keg waiting to blow any day now! Who will you fight for?
 

b15m5K7l.jpg


Yes, this means the next release is imminent and will feature:
  • Two factions, the Allies and the Soviets with new arsenals.
  • Four countries per faction, each with 12-15 unique units, structures and support powers.
  • An entirely rebalanced experience with rapid, dynamic gameplay providing the player with plenty of opportunities for attack.
  • Over 300 multiplayer maps and several game modes, including Dead Rising - where infantry killed in combat rise from the dead.
  • The vanilla Red Alert 2 campaign ported to work with the additional content of Red-Resurrection.
  • The CnCNet 5 client from rampastring, with additional unique features and menu themes.
To tie you over I've also uploaded a few more videos to youtube recently, the latest of which is a 2v2 with me & tyhednus vs AdmiralPit & modder666 (of Final War). Mistakes were made.
 


Stay tuned.

Year End Recap
Development on the upcoming version of YR Red-Resurrection started back in May, and since then there has been massive progress, perhaps the most productive modding year of my life. Just in the last 7 months or so there have been over 80 new units & powers added to the eight countries, with constant multiplayer balance testing along the way which has largely driven development. This has not been a release built on theory but on practice, so hopefully when the mod finally gets to you it will feel polished and well rounded, and as quality as a more-or-less one man developer can make it.

Here is a recap of the recent country showcases that have been uploaded already to ModDB.
 

h2gbpQWm.pngmLKzgS3m.pngfvIVrBTm.pngmCfJr7nm.pngYRRl5Yjm.pngP3nPXv2m.png


Only Yugoslavia and Japan left to show off, though even then these are not all the unique features of each nation. I hope to find time to do some more detailed previews and explanations of the countries later.

The release is not all that far away either. I wanted to get it out before the end of the year, however that won't quite happen, but early sometime next year is not an unreasonable goal. Work on wrapping up the mod has been ongoing for a little while, such as writing the manual to explain all the new stuff!

The next version will actually come with an OFFLINE manual (as well as it being available on the web) that you can get to by simply clicking a button in the main menu. The manual will feature lore and explanations on each unit as well as hopefully all the necessary info you need to get a grasp of the different countries, such as with the following example.
 

dr37ElXm.jpg


I've been trying to make it as user friendly and useful as possible. Here is a nifty little toggle feature that allows you to easily swap between viewing all or specific country units on each page!
 

BB7E0lj.gif


That should allow decent customisation in the way you want to view the information, without cluttering up the screen or being particularly distracting. Anyway, there has been plenty more going on and development shall continue rapidly, so stay tuned and follow here or on Facebook for more little snippets of info!
