Frank Klepacki was at MAGFest for more than just the historic concert with The Tiberian Sons. At the festival, he also held an hour-long discussion on his career as a music composer and audio director. It's always nice to hear background stories on developers' and artists' work, so be sure to check it out.
Hello everyone! Sorry for being slacking with news. I thought I was only a couple of weeks behind my schedule with my Ph.D. thesis, but the problem is actually a matter of months and the tight schedule makes things quite tough for me. Regardless of my news inactivity, the community is still alive constantly posting cool looking voxels and some other resources. So, I'll be quick with the news today: Unoficial D-Day Multiplayer Edition with CnCNet Client support With the blessing from Mig Eater, twistedconversion has posted a D-Day 3.7b with CnCNet client support. Head to this topic for further information. Note that this specific edition of the mod is currently hosted on MediaFire. We'll be creating a mirror for it soon in PPM. Phobos is getting some updates: Kerbiter is looking for testers for the upcoming version of Phobos, which, together with Ares, extends Yuri's Revenge modding features. Here's the changelog of the Build 5 Quote: Changelog: - New Dump Object Info command (by secsome) - Remove Disguise and Remove Mind Control warhead effects (by secsome) - Projectile Interception Logic (by AutoGavy) - Custom per-WH SplashLists (by Uranusian/Thrifinisema); - Optional mind control range limit (by Uranusian/Thrifinisema); - Tileset 255+ bridge fix (by E1 Elite) Also thanks to thomassneddon, BoredEXE (Otamaa) and FS-21 for assistance on implementing the features. TEST BUILD: https://github.com/Phobos-developers/Phobos/releases/tag/build-5 As always, you can read the wiki here: https://github.com/Phobos-developers/Phobos/wiki Share your feedback here. Revora is moving to a new server and we shall move there as well: For those who complain that PPM runs slowly, we will be moving to a new server which is far better than the current one. However, due to some software differences between both machines, it will possibly have some minor traumas with SSL support, once it happens. But it won't be something that can't be fixed. We don't have a date for this operation yet, but we might be surprised with it in the next days. For now, Revora Forums and some of its hostees are already running on this new server. For further information, I've been posting about it at the forums (registered users only).

Hi everyone! As part of the celebrations for Renegade's 19th Birthday, the W3D Hub team will be doing a Q&A session on Discord, Twitch and YouTube sometime next week. (Keep an eye out for the date). We want to know what questions you have for the team here at W3D Hub! This could be anything from what our future plans are to what we had for lunch, so please feel free to be creative with your questions! We will be curating the questions a bit however, so if your question is a bit on the controversial side, it may not get answered! Fair warning to you! Head to the question form here to submit your questions!
Hi everyone! Just a quick note for all of you W3D Hub Launcher users to say that we've gone ahead and hidden any games that have not been released yet (unless you have access to them as a Tester or Staff member), so games like Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising, Battle for Dune: War of Assassins and Tiberian Dawn: Ground Zero won't fully show up on the launcher until they are released. This change should make it easier for everyone to figure out what games are currently available to play. Just to be clear, the games have not been cancelled. This is just a measure to make it more obvious what everyone has access to play. If you guys have any feedback please leave a comment. Cheers!
Happy new year! And to celebrate 2021, hopefully with vaccines against covid-19 for as many people as possible, the crew from Contra, a total conversion for Generals: Zero Hour, has decided to celebrate with a new patch. Contra 009 Patch 3 comes with a myriad of bug fixes, balance changes, improvements on graphics, maps, and much more. Download Contra 009 Patch 3 at Contra's ModDB Profile and have fun!
Another new year's release was patch 1.0.3 from Red Alert 20XX. This modification for Yuri's Revenge, made by mtkii, brings his perspective of an ideal Red Alert 2 (therefore, bye-bye Yuri faction) with more useful infantry, less cartoonish palettes, more visual effects, less questionable technologies, and more coherent subfactions, with USA, European Union, and The Pacific Shogunate for Allies and USSR, China and the Eastern Republic for the Soviets. There is a topic about this mod on PPM Forums, in case you would like to submit some feedback. The focus of this new patch is to improve the Pacific Shogunate. Read more here!
Last month, December 17th, FS-21 released C&C: Reloaded 2.2.0, the latest version of the classic modification for Yuri's Revenge that adds GDI and Nod to the battlefield. Since the last time we've posted news about a release of this mod, a lot has happened. Most of the progress is related to the use of the newest versions of Ares and its extension Phobos. There are also new game options, new maps, new secret units for the Tech Lab such as Nod Reckoner, Nod Redeemer, Mobile EM-Pulse, and Allied Guardian Tank. You can also sell docked aircraft from Helipads, save games and there are countless bug fixes and improvements on the gameplay. Read more about the changelog of the newest versions of the mod here!
A couple of patches have been released for Dawn of the Tiberium Age in recent weeks, with the last one, 1.194m, being released on December 23rd. From the 1.92f version that we have announced last september until now, a lot has been added or tweaked. Read more here!

The escapistmagazine.com has recently posted an interesting article about games made by Ex-Westwood Studios staff "The strength of small developers is that we are able to try new ideas that are just too risky for big game publishers to try." Joe Bostic (Petroglyph/ex-Westwood Dev)
