C&C Labs offers fan-created maps for Red Alert 3 for download, as well as information about how to create custom maps of your own.
Red Alert 3 maps are placed in the Red Alert 3 custom fan maps folder. Each map has its own subfolder, named the same as the map, within the main custom Maps folder. The location of the RA3 Maps folder depends on what version of Windows your have installed:
- Under Windows XP:
- C:\Documents and Settings\[USER_NAME]\Application Data\Red Alert 3\Maps\
- Under Windows Vista:
- C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Red Alert 3\Maps\
To install Red Alert 3 maps that you've downloaded, extract them into the folder above based on your version of Windows. Note that the AppData folder may be hidden by default - the World Builder section has information about how to unhide it in Windows Explorer.
