OpenRA is a highly moddable RTS game engine for classic Westwood 2D games. In fact Red Alert, Command & Conquer and Dune 2000 are implemented purely as mods on it. Tools are provided that allow you to add new units, maps and tilesets even create your own mod. Have a look at the wiki.
The RA mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of Command & Conquer: Red Alert. It is not just a clone of the original but has improved and rebalanced gameplay. The UI is modernised for higher resolutions and better usabiltiy. It has fully working multiplayer support for both internet and local play (via direct connect).
The CNC mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn game. As with Red Alert modern networking and rendering technology is used. Also new features are implemented such as snow terrain, neutral tech buildings and many glitches from the original have been fixed.
The D2k mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of Dune 2000. A remake of the remake so to speak. It separates itself from the rest of the C&C series in terms of lore, certain game mechanics and file formats, but also shares a lot of technology with it's spiritual successors. Avoid the sandworms and build your base on stable foundations. The spice must flow!
The most exciting change in this release comes from a complete overhaul of the unit targeting logic, which fixes many long-standing bugs and introduces some important improvements to gameplay fluidity:
Tanks now automatically target enemy forces while moving.
The specialised infantry in Red Alert have had a shake-down and a fix-up:
Improvements to the Attack Dog and Thief should make them more viable on the battlefield.
Thanks to the hard work of several new contributors, Red Alert now features an additional seven single-player missions, and Tiberian Dawn another two. Behind the scenes, the underlying AI framework has been rewritten to support the development of some long-planned improvements in future releases.
Some other notable gameplay changes include:
Nine more single-player missions have been adapted from the original games.
This release brings several improvements to the map editor, including a map actor editor, a new Copy/Paste filter, and the ability to select multiple terrain categories in the sidebar.
The map editor now supports editing actor properties such as owner, health, facing, and stance.
