OpenRA: Reloaded Origins mod

Hi to all!

Lets Reload And Mix Lovely Games!

For a long time I beat many modifications of original classic RTS games.
Many modders add a bunch of new units to the game, many different structures. modifications often are too oversaturated innovations, lost balance, the usual gameplay ...
I personally liked the really such modifications, in which a minimum of new units and buildings...
... Sometimes I myself tried to modify and add something new, but it is very quickly bored.
as the saying goes - the original remains unrivaled.

I really like C&C Reloaded YR mod, bcz it add GDI and NOD in YR and have a little new stuff. Also I like Tiberian Origins mod on OpenRA engine...
I want to make something near thouse mods in OpenRA.

Gameplay in C&C RTS games is very same, but graphic is different, and ALL games may be put in two different cases in my mind:

1) Case
Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty [MS-DOS]
Dune II: The Battle For Arrakis [Sega mega drive]
Rad Alert 1 [PC]
Tiberian Dawn [PC]

2) Case
Dune 2000
Tiberian Sun
Red Alert 2/YR
Starcraft 1

All of this games without SC and Sega version of Dune exist (mot full yet) on OpenRA exist as separate modifications.
So I set a goal to combine all the best of what that is and to implement it in two versions, as far as possible on this engine, namely:

A) Now, I want take second case from my mind and:
1) Add sides from Dune2000 and Tiberian Sun to Red Alert 2 mod as is (maximum as is).
2) Add in RA2 mod weapons, effects, maybe tilesets and missions from D2k and TS mods.
3) In the future maybe add Youry side and SC1 races (it will be perfect)

B) After that:
1) Update Tiberian Origins mod to actual OpenRA version and add sides from MS-DOS version of Dune
2) Add weapons, effects, maybe tilesets and missions from MS-DOS D2.
3) In the future maybe add sides from SEGA version of Dune (it will be perfect too)

I want it all looks like C&C Reloaded YR mod:
You may select any side in skimish, and you may play original singleplayer missions.
Have you ever dreamed to Oreminer full of Tiberium be swallowed the worm?
Minimum incomprehensible new units, weapons and buildings. Maximum mix of the usual sides, usual gameplay, we need to squeeze all the juice from the fact that we like, thanks to the new possibilities opened up before us OpenRA.

In connection with this mess I want to appeal to those who know how a certain color palette can be replaced by a transparent.

I want to use edited or remaped BIB palette to invisible sand from bib (palette must display only road pixels, and not display sand pixels)

So let me get this straight... simply your adding D2,TD,RA factions,units and buildings together to make a battle royale?
And then making a separate mod to mashup D2000,TS & RA2?
I'm lost... Looks interesting though.

Sorry for my very bad English.

I want to mix sides from that games to one mod like football mixes footbolists from another commands to one command.

Each side will be have own structures like original, and it will be battle royale of sides.

Added d2k barraks
Added d2k lite infantry
Added d2k lite factories
Added d2k standard infantry voices

Good work with meshup-ing games)
Personally i like those mods like YR:Reloaded, YR Mashup, YR Coalition War etc too...
And like Tib Origins, shame its not updating for 2 years...
Tried myself to update it, but OpenRA code is too harsh for me, dunno why.
Wishing you patience to finish it!

2) if You can write/add any sprite loaders (to add factions from sega mega drive DUNE, Stargus or hostle takeower)
3) if You can edit bitmaps and .yaml files to make "notbadlook" player interface to any faction (now it seems very bad)
