Have you tried using Map Editor for Red Alert ?

for a very basic mapping? yes. cliff placement is absolute pain, even with tool improvement since TibSun. i don't have much experience with it, but i think i can give a few small tips:

  • start map with lowest elevation - it's easier to place some cliffs and fill in elevated terrain than o try and cut out a hole in the ground
  • make sure the editor touches top left corner of the screen - view is somehow anchored to that point, so moving window somewhere else will make it so that you won't be able to see the whole map
  • there's an alternative view mode that shows asset numbers and shapes - use it to build cliffs and make sure that green lines on the cliffs connect, otherwise funny stuff will be happening.
