Can´t play any custom map in latest playtest

All the maps need an upgrade or something? In RA map menu I only see "official maps" and I don´t know why :?

I´m wondering if we should change the name "OpenRA" to "OpenCnC" (with TS and RA2 coming... and the forgotten Dune...)

Using notepad++ and modifying the yaml. file of your map (save as unpacked) you can set the Technology Center and the Forward Command to make it capturable with engineers or by only pushing your units nearby (King of the Hill maps), it´s used for modmaps or nice powerups for some maps.

3. Ability to decide the "download cargo" function of the transport units. So you can dispatch a few units (or only one) instead of all at the same time. This should require a special UI. 2. Lock screen resolution for everyone (regardless of monitor size) at a reasonable size, so you can see what ot...

Love this design. Has aspects that made Red Alert appeal to me, that gritty old-school almost gloomy picture. Just in my opinion the font used for OpenRA and "free and open source" seem out of place. Maybe something closer to the original box font I tried to use "C&C Red Alert INET" font but I coul...

The silence of the tooltips

So I made this chart with all the allied units (no supply truck) in RA mod for further examination and, in the future, help newbies to understand some secret pro´s and con´s of allied units. All feedback is welcome, once this chart is 100% feel free to comment and discuss this in a video or podcast,...

I was wondering, if you're going to try to promote this to a large 'general audience', wouldn't it be better, if at all possible, if OpenRA was renamed to OpenCnC? Meaning the overall project would be OpenCnC, and inside of it are OpenRA, OpenTD and OpenD2K. That way people might easier understand ...

This one is an example of web design (friendly, helpful and eye-candy) about a private server of Vanilla WoW ( https://en.nostalrius.org/ ) It has almost the same opportunities and strenghts about the games (classic WoW and classic TD, RA, Dune) Attention to the motto: "Experience the glory days..."...

Slightly offtopic: Add a -match of the month-, -protip of the week- and maybe some quotes about strategies/maps/fun trivia from pro players to the client. Also make a short description to every official map with the map strategy or the recommended/caution moves to generate more map awareness. Any ne...

Strengths: - (A good deal of) OpenRA is available in several languages Several languages or several platforms? Here comes the anti-brainstorm My humble opinion: Weaknesses: - No multilanguage support - It´s an oldie game with old mechanics - It´s not properly balanced for serious tournaments (ore m...

Messing with map lighting: Tabula Martian

Hello flaks folks, I started to mess around with lighting effects and some stuff with notepad++ and got this awesome effect, a martian ambience in Red Alert. I used one of FiveAces´ map to test it and I got interesting results (If RA2:YR had the Moon, OpenRa has Mars) Now we can take advantage of th...
