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!

Yeah, I found out that Windows Vista and Win7 hates my launcher program and refuses to run it and I cannot seem to get a way around it. I tested it on my cousins computer who had Windows Vista to reach this conclusion. (I still use WinXPSP3)

And thanks. Hope you get everything worked out.

If you are Testing out the Beta TDR v1.4 please leave a comment or PM to me about any problems or concerns that you may have about ANYTHING else in the Mod. Let me know as I will not be offended as I need everyone's "constructive criticism" to help continue to make this Mod better. If you have noticed from the marked improvements from the v1.4 Beta, I do listen to your feedback! Do not be shy as your feedback is much appreciated!

Btw one thing I noticed: Stealth Tanks cause awful lag when in groups of 2 or bigger. When I move the screen at random location, fps is 30+, but when I move to the Stealth Tanks, fps drops to 20 or less. I was playing as Black Hand

Well it does not seem to affect my computer. Weird, it must be the new special effects.

The hard AI, against which I play mostly, is very tough. I had multiple Railgun turrets (yay!), but they still managed to destroy some of my defenses with Scorpion and Flame Tanks. Also they're attacking with larger forces and more often with various units. So I think it's excellent compared to earlier versions' AI :D
Hard GDI uses Orcas a lot, as well as Rocket Launchers.
