Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! I am pleased to announce the third Cartographer's Call: Yuri's Revenge Mapping Competition! Hosted over on Project Perfect Mod. Cranium has kindly offered to put up an excellent prize for this CCC which is a copy of C&C Ultimate Collection. It has all 17 C&C games up to C&C4 and serial key has not been used! It even comes with an authenticated and autographed C&C game art picture in a frame.
Check out previous CCC Events:
Those of you whom are familiar with the rules of Cartographer's Call will need to read through the rules again as things are different this year, the rules are not as strict and the rating format has changed!
As with all the other Cartographer's Call Competitions, the maps you submit will be judged only by the two set designated judges, they will not undergo public voting. Your maps will be released by myself in the Red Alert 2 Finished Maps forum along with your ratings and scores.
I will only be accepting submissions via PRIVATE MESSAGE! No emails!
Good luck everybody, may the best mapper win!
We have finally released the information on Epsilon Infantry. Now that profiles for all heroes and heroines have been published, you can take a look at the standard 8-directional preview images for them! Who do you think will be your favourite?
This war begins anew. As you may already know, Mental Omega 3.0 will retell the events of Red Alert 2, continuing where Red Alert 1 left off and branch out into an expanded universe with brand new missions for all three factions. It means that the previous policy of "Yuri thought that his Boomers were not good enough in previous war so he replaced them with the Resheph" is no longer valid. Everything that's presented in the mod is a part of our new timeline and the events of Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge are being retconned. The story will go in a different direction than Yuri's Revenge did and lead to a completely new ending with two acts, with Act One having 36 missions (12 per side).
We are very happy to announce that the first part of the voice over stage for Mental Omega 3.0 has been completed with success! We managed to collect voice over sets for 62 new units, after receiving samples from many people. We are very thankful for your contribution, we didn't expect such an overwhelming response! In the end, voices of 20 people will be heard in-game, the full list of contributors can still be seen on this page. You made this project more complete, thank you.
Bu7loos has recently created a new Tesla Coil, EMP Mines and PsiCorps Mind Reader.
I just wanted to take a moment to talk about a charity I run that Revora.net has endorsed.
Right now albinos are hunted for their body parts and something is being done about it. Our charity is attempting to educate the masses in Tanzania, Africa.
So we started with a compound in Buhangija, Tanzania.
So we fed over 100 children and added some pics for all to see.
They live in a guarded compound run by the government that provided limited resources, Our job is to augment those resources with resources of our own while withstanding corrupt politicians. It is not an easy task...
We currently have a chicken program on the way. We've purchased 50 chickens and 50 more coming. So they can sustain themselves and learn how to raise chickens.
We currently have an underwear program in place to cloth the naked.
We currently have a mattress, sheets, and blankets program to shelter the burdened.
We are doing a lot but need some help. I don't expect money from young people such as yourselves, but you can help by clicking our Google links, our twitter feeds, and look at the Facebook account. But most importantly you can look at the website and learn about the issues. Learn about albinism, and learn about what is going on.
I want to thank Phil for our conversation and allowing me to make http://albinocharity.org an officially recognized charity of Revora.net and for their free web hosting for this charity. I want to thank Duke_qa for making the logo free of charge. I'd like to have a banner to post on the site to link back to Revora.
Thank you for your attention.
A common request we get is adding some kind of chat system to our forum. The Shoutbox plugin covers part of that wish, but obviously not all of it.
An official chat system addon for the board exists, but using it would require us to change our current licence to a regular one with less advantages (free upgrades forever) and pay an additional $80 per year. For a technology that's not really suited for real-time chat anyway. It may be an option in the future, but for now we've decided to go a different route.
We've created a permanent IRC channel for Revora called #revora at the freenode IRC network. To join us, download an IRC client, connect to chat.freenode.net and then /join #revora. If you don't know how to do that, you'll find lots of IRC tutorials with your favourite search engine (I'm an IRC beginner myself). The advantage of IRC is that it's fast, simple and has been successfully used for decades.
The channel is still very empty at the moment as only Starkku and me have joined it, but I bet if we can get a few people online, there will be a nice casual discussion. IRC also supports private chats if you need that.
Admins can contact me to get permanent operator status in the channel.
In order to improve things around here I'll be making some changes around here.
But before I do that I'd like to hear your feedback on T3A and how we run things.
Here is a feedback and suggestions thread where you can post your thoughts on what can be improved.
A staff change has also been made as part of the Spring Cleaning.
Ridder Geel has been promoted to T3A moderator staff.
