I am the creator of the C&C Tiberian Dawn Redux Mod and the Realistic Weapon Mod for C&C Generals Zero Hour. I am one of the first few people to successfully release a Zero Hour Mod with enhanced revolutionary graphics! I have also been an assistant programmer and map designer for Vietnam Glory Obscured. Outside of computer game modding, you will often find me participating in scenario paintball and war reenactment events and storm chasing! I am also a proud Star Trek fan!

7 comments by sgtmyers88 on Dec 12th, 2011

I am excited that the long awaited sequel to C&C Generals is now in development! However there are a few concerns that I hope get sorted out before its release in 1.5 years. Otherwise I may have to sadly boycott it just as I did with C&C4.

I just hope EA has learned their lesson from their past mistakes.

To the game developers I have a few notes for success:

DO:
Keep the gameplay and atmosphere of the original game.
Add new units, missions, and "gameplay innovations" that would ENHANCE the original concepts.
Add a more DIVERSE and INNOVATIVE singleplayer mode.
(Also Look at the old C&C games that feature a map that allows you to select up to four different missions in the singleplayer campaigns.)
Keep Skirmish & Generals Challenge!
Add Naval Warfare!
Add Global Conquest Mode!
MAP MAKING SOFTWARE & MOD SUPPORT IS A MUST!
And bring in both Bill Brown & Frank Klepacki to compose for the game!

DON'T:
Cut out the core gameplay mechanics.
Add half-naked women in every cutscene and mission briefing.
Make ridiculously over-saturated cartoon styled graphics.
Force players to always play online even in singleplayer missions and skirmish mode.
(The fans like to play C&C games anytime, anywhere WITHOUT the leash of an active internet connection, thank you very much!)

Follow these guidelines and this will be the best C&C game ever!

I got it to work but there was a problem with the cursors, the two Data files in the directory can't work together atleast not on my computer, there is not cursors for everything in the TDR data folder, so in order to have TDR cursors work with the ZH cursors I had to mix them in one folder, but I had to be carefull I didn't mix the same ones because then no cursor would show in-game. I made a cursor folder and hopefully it will work and I will see the cursors in-game, now it's time for me to test your mod out for myself :)

PS. can you tell me the newest version of ZH? I wan't to patch my game up to the newest. :)

Its ZH Patch v1.04 or get the version from C&C The First Decade. You can just copy and replace the cursors. I just copied my ZH cursor folder in with the Mod cursors as well and there should not be any other conflicts. If it asked you to replace files just click "Yes to All".

If anyone has noticed the new page that I have launched, (still incomplete) it is a ModDB Page that will host a specialized C&C Generals Mod SDK Database to help Modders for both C&C Generals & Zero Hour so they can learn to Mod the games easier. I will also provide the option to add the graphics that you see in C&C Tiberian Dawn Redux for use in the other existing Mods. Other community members have also agreed to help contribute to this effort and you can also join and submit your concepts and modding strategies too! Moddb.com
