Let me first say, amazing Mod. The units, the gameplay and the music - it really takes me back to the 90s.

Anyway, with that I have some questions. There are several countries to choose from but I don't know where to look or where to get a heads-up on what are those countries' particular abilities/strengths. I didn't think there really were any until I got a quick flash on a loading screen that mentioned Spanish infantry...? Hope this can be cleared up.

Also, Greece and Turkey being Soviet nations? That strikes me as odd since they're NATO and Greece was definitely an Allied nation in original RA (not playable but mentioned alot during the SP campaign).

Plus I remember that the Russia Soviet faction in RA1 was supposed to get a lower price and faster building rate. The same goes to the France Allied faction.

As I remember the original country "abilities" were:

England - 10% increase in strength
France - 10% increase in rate of fire (although thanks to WW mistake they had slower ROF)
Germany - 10% increase in firepower

Ukraine - 10% increase in speed
Russia - 10% cost reduction (and therefore faster construction)

Obviously that's not the same as in TRA so I'd like a faction breakdown as well.

BTW Greece and Turkey fell to the USSR during the campaign (remember the news report about the fall of Greece and Stavros getting all upset) so I assume that is why they are Soviet here.

as OmegaBolt Quoted

knowing if what omegabolt remembers is true, then can this be confirmed and if soo, what are spain, greece and turkey good at?

as i'm upto my 50th play through on skirmish and i can't tell what each countries bonus is

Here's what the code says:
  • England: 10% more armor
  • Germany: 10% more damage
  • France: 10% faster rate of fire
  • Spain: 10% more armor, damage, and speed for infantry
  • Russia: 10% cheaper (but not faster to build)
  • Ukraine: 10% faster speed
  • Turkey: 10% faster building time
  • Greece: 10% longer range

As you can see, the only major difference is the presence of new countries.

  • Ah, don't tell me I have to use the top-secret protocol to get an upgrade under effect.

    Besides Turkey has no difference in faster building time when I used that faction.

    Yeah I also noticed that Turkey doesn't actually build faster, maybe it needs either fixing so it does or given a different benefit

    Or maybe they should fk up a couple countries like they were in the original game, as that game had some coding errors so 1 or 2 countries became useless. So this mod should be identical to that too.
