Just a few days ago, W3D Hub made version 3.0.7.4 of Red Alert: A Path Beyond available for download. This all important update fixes the recent "rubber-banding" troubles that have been so troubling. There are other fixes and changes also included, as detailed below.

 


GENERAL

  • NetUpdateRate is now set correctly, this should annihilate your rubberbanding problems!
  • Being scoped in when the map ends no longer causes you to stay scoped on the next map.
  • Added engine.cfg override for monitor refresh rate.
  • Added armour bar to HUD target box for any unit that has armour. This should reduce the confusion about inconsistencies in weapon damage.

INFANTRY

  • Infantry armour is now more effective against "weak" explosive splash damage, reducing health damage by 62.5% instead of 50%, and the armour itself is completely immune to this damage. Effectiveness of "strong" explosives (artillery, V2, C4 and hand grenades) is unchanged.

VEHICLES

  • Light Tank, Medium Tank, Heavy Tank, Mammoth Tank can no longer carry passengers.

BUILDINGS

  • Purchase terminal zones now have physical collision, so it is no longer possible to get so close to them that you are unable to use them.
  • Fixed shape of Construction Yard roof VIS sector, should prevent some oddities when camera is over the "arch".
  • Construction Yard second floor has grates beneath the PCTs, so even if the PT zones fail, you should not fall through them when buying stuff.
  • Added blocker behind MCV in non-tunnel version of Construction Yard basement, so it is no longer possible to get stuck behind it.
  • Sub Pen now has mesh fences on the ends of the piers, making it harder for Allied infantry to disembark directly into the pen (but still possible) and harder to fall into the water while trying to defend against navy as an RPG/Volkov.
  • Naval Yard now uses the same mesh fencing as the Sub Pen.
  • Collision plane on Allied Barracks basement stairway now properly connects to the lower floor; this means that infantry descending the stairs will no longer "fall" and get accuracy penalties as a result.

AESTHETICS

  • Added Kaskins' Imperial Age bullet tracers with his permission, to replace the outdated and broken emitter-based tracers.
  • Weather particles no longer fall through water; this also allows us to add weather back to naval maps that previously had it at some point.

MAPS

RA_HostileWaters:

  • Added light snowfall.
  • Fixed water brightness.
  • Water now fades at shorelines.

RA_Siege:

  • Fixed water brightness.
  • EVA now reminds you about the cannon side objective every so often.
  • Cannons now repair at half the previous rate and take 25% more damage from Hinds.
  • Cannons now use the same radar marker as base defenses.
  • Added collision planes to the landing pads, so ground vehicles should not get stuck on them and infantry walking onto them should not "fall".
  • Fixed a bad texture blend on the hills behind Soviet base.

RA_Under:

  • Added snowfall.
  • Parts of the Soviet Radar Dome are no longer untargetable.

You can update to the latest version using the W3D Hub Launcher.

Yes the rubber-banding troubles were definitely all very troubling. Glad it's fixed now, devs worked hard on it. :)

      We've fallen a bit behind on the news in the C&C community, so it's time to catch up.
      C&C Communications Center has relaunched on Sunday with a completely new look and a vast archive of data and images from Westwood's RTS titles currently spanning from the venerable Dune II to Tiberian Sun and Firestorm. Much of the material you can see there hasn't been seen publicly in many years, and some of it... ever! Over the past week, the Twisted Insurrection team introduced new tracks for the upcoming version of the mod: Radioactivity (including some lyrics from Kraftwerk's song of the same name), W.I.R.E.S., Tungsten Souls, and The Surveyors. The first three tracks were composed by Swirekster, while The Surveyors is by OmegaBolt. OpenRA was updated to stable version 20170527, which fixes a few graphical issues and adds the "Fast" game speed. The Generals 2 mod for Red Alert 3 is showing further progress with the new APA tank models and textures. Red Alert: A Path Beyond was patched to version 3.1.1.0, introducing lots of balance changes, map tweaks, touched-up graphics for the Mammoth Tank, new Strela-2 model for the Grenadier and more.

      W3D Hub has released version 3.1.0.0 of Red Alert: A Path Beyond. This is the first major version since the first Delta release, with quite a lot of changes. The most important ones are the availability of Soviet Airfields and Yaks, Thieves being able to steal 33% of ore from ore silos on any map, Radar Domes having a special terminal for airlifting basic vehicles when the War Factory goes down, Redeye/Strela weapons no longer having homing characteristics, Grenadiers no longer having an "artillery form", and lots of balance changes, tweaks and aesthetic improvements. Check out the full changelog here and if you haven't done so already, get the W3D Hub Launcher from here.

      Some great promotion for the team at W3D Hub. They have been featured in a large article on Kotaku UK. Despite a few inaccuracies that are mentioned in the article, it's great to the Command & Conquer name on a major gaming publication. The article talks about the history of C&C Renegade and W3D Hub's current projects. Here's a sample.
