Aloha! Phobos has a new development version called Phobos Build 37 that is expecting feedback from testers. For your information, Phobos extends the modding features from Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge and, unlike Ares, is completely open-source. Here are the official words about Phobos Build 37:

Disclaimer: development builds are inherently unstable and may contain improvements that will be changed and adjusted before the stable release (as well as bugs), with fewer stability guarantees.
Known issues
  • There is at least one cause of desynchronization error occurring in multiplayer games that is yet to be solved but is under investigation.
  • Loading a save game made when the map had at least one active radiation site might crash the game, possibly without an error message or log.

Phobos development build 37 is up!
