    A today made the surprise announcement that the .dll files and corresponding source code for RTS classics Command and Conquer Red Alert and Command and Conquer Tiberian Dawn would be released into open source. The announcement came via a Reddit post related to the upcoming Command and Conquer remaster collection. This came as a surprise to most. The Command and Conquer series has been a darling for RTS afficianados and modders alike since it launched in 1995. "So, what does it mean for Mod Support within the Remastered Collection? Along with the inclusion of a new Map Editor, these open-source DLLs should assist users to design maps, create custom units, replace art, alter gameplay logic, and edit data." Command and Conquer is a nostalgic throwback from a time when 32-bit graphics were cutting edge and full motion video was a must-have for serious strategy games. EA‘s already let some modders run wild with code to answer the age old question:  “What would the Brotherhood of Nod do if they captured the Mammoth Tank?” The answer is make it shoot nukes, of course.






     




    My Thoughts:

    Hype. I remember being a young kid a playing Tiberian Sun for days on end. While I could never get far, I loved the actual live action video and actual story line it provided and really was a league of it's own. I'm ready for this remaster and I'm glad they've opened it up as much as they have.
