New OpenRA Holiday Release!

Posted by Matt, 25 December 2013 at 10:42 am UTC / 8710 views
QuoteIn the last three months we have merged 769 commits by 14 authors into our Github project.
We do all of our development in the open, so anybody can get involved!

You can find us on our IRC channel (webchat) or using your favorite social media platform:

Twitter
 Facebook Google+ ModDB Desura Reddit


Some important improvements over our last September release are:

  • We now support Lua scripting in maps for creating missions and custom minigames.
  • Our Red Alert mod now includes the M.A.D tank, production acceleration (multiple factories improve the production rate), and the heavily requested base-size limit from our TD mod.
  • Our Tiberian Dawn mod (renamed from C&C) has overhauled support powers and weapon effects.
  • Our Dune 2000 mod now uses the original artwork for shroud and spice.
  • Menu UI improvements include password-protected servers and a new unified settings menu.
  • A lot more bug, polish, and performance fixes. Thanks to everyone who reported problems!
The christmas stocking full changelog is stuffed with goodies, so be sure to check it out if you’re interested in seeing all the changes, or have a mod or map that you’d like to upgrade.



Allies-02

The first two allied missions have been recreated using Lua in our RA mod.

TD Combat

The A10 aircraft in our TD mod now strafe their target with their vulcan cannon before releasing fire-bombs.

D2K Battle

Our D2K mod is looking better than ever, now using the proper shroud and spice artwork.

Modding Support

Our modding tools have received several improvements.
Shown here is a sneak-peek from our work in progress Tiberian Sun mod.

Love the work of this project. Red Alert is one of my favourite RTS games.
