We are pleased to announce Release 20190314, which brings changes developed between August 2018 and January 2019 and polished with the help of player feedback across three playtests during the last 10 weeks.

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 targeting while moving

Tanks now automatically target enemy forces while moving.

The specialised infantry in Red Alert have had a shake-down and a fix-up:

Thieves and Attack Dogs

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:

TD Campaign Mission: Nod 10b

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.

Map Editor Improvements Profiles

The map editor now supports editing actor properties such as owner, health, facing, and stance.
