All of the current mods are now accessed separately instead of using a central launcher, a C&C3-styled interface for advanced movement options like attack move and waypoints has been implemented, new building physics have been added, 9 more Dune 2000 campaign missions have been converted, LAN games are now automatically discovered in the Multiplayer browser, and many more changes have been made.

Throwback Thursday for 20th July

21 July 2017 Off

This week in our Throwback Thursday feature, we look at the evolution of the first Tesla Tank in the Red Alert universe. It first appeared in the Counterstrike mission “Legacy of Tesla” with the appearance of a Mobile Radar Jammer, as a campaign-only unit. In development builds of The Aftermath, it sported a similar chassis, but with a Tesla coil and a van de Graaff generator mounted on top of it. In its final appearance in the released version of The Aftermath, where it is available in skirmish and multiplayer as well, the Tesla coil is condensed and its profile is lower.

Remember, you can click on the preview to see a larger and more detailed image. Don’t forget to check out the Throwback Thursdays archives if you’ve missed a week. Check back again next Thursday for another Throwback. Send in your ideas for future instalments. We also encourage you to share this on social media using the hash tags #ThrowbackThursday, #CnCTBT and #CNCNZTBT.
