This mod is for all the players frustrated with the cartoony nature of Zero Hour units and buildings. We intend to replace every fanciful unit in Zero Hour with its closest possible real world equivalent, without changing the unit's capabilities.

Report article RSS Feed VRM 0.5 Released!

Head on over to the downloads and grab it while it's hot!

Posted by dhd on Jun 10th, 2013

Like the title says, 0.5 is now out and you can get it either in the downloads section or through the big download button here!

Visual Reality Mod 0.5

This being said, I must emphasize that the mod has primarily been constructed and tested to work best with the VANILLA GENERALS, the special generals added in Zero Hour are probably quite bug riddled!

Here are most of the new units involved (not shown are several non-buildable units and one or two others that simply were forgotten in the family photos):

  • Added upgraded Inferno Cannon (+ custom gibs)
  • Added upgraded Quad Cannon
  • Added new cameos for F15, F35, ECM, PLZ-05, Type 96, Gatling tank, F22, US Dozer, Marauder, battle drone
  • Added new installation tutorial
  • Added upgraded Marauder (now with 3 upgrade stages)
  • Added upgraded U.S. Dozer

  • Added new B-52

  • Added new shell map
  • Added new skin for worker

It looks great. Now some questions, I know that lot of people bother you, but if there is T-72, why should not there be a Elbrus as SCUD stage 2/3, and if BTR-152 can upgrade to ZSU-57/2 and ZSU-23/4, why BTR-40 can not upgrade to BRDM-2U as stage 2 and BTR-60 (that already was in game as Battle bus) as stage 3? I know, you wanted to have as old as possible units for GLA, but when I saw T-72 with ERA bricks, I think BTR-60 won't be such modern unit. And also, I like the T-55 stage 2 and stage 3, as I can see Libya and Syria were inspireing. All best in future :)

BTR-40K should actually upgrade to BTR-152K and then finally BTR-60PB.

I agree about the Scud being Stage 2 but Stage 3 should be the Al-Hussein.

Because I didn't have the time to finish junk upgrade stages for several vehicles.

Simple reason!
