C&C:VRM Generals strives to make Zero Hour as visually realistic as possible. This means that we would like to replace every in-game entity with its closest real world equivalent. We are NOT interested in changing the gameplay in any way, and intend to keep the original balance of Zero Hour entirely intact.

Our ultimate goal is to have every unit in the game, every icon, every building, most sounds and most particle effects replaced to be as realistic as possible. The crusader tank for example has been replaced by the M1A2 abrams. Some units, such as the Avenger, have capabilities beyond real life.
We will still replace these units with their most logical real-life-counterpart, despite the real vehicle not being able to perform the same actions.

It is designed to work with a FRESH VANILLA INSTALL of Zero Hour, and will get start to get real buggy if you use some of the GLA zero hour generals.

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

I'm just curious, but how are you planning to replace the superweapons?

Personally I would rather the US had an ICBM launcher, but this simply can't be done without changing gameplay somehow. I suppose Particle cannon could be replaced by some sort of coms structure which tells a sattelite in orbit to reflect sunlight or fire a laser or microwave beam (ala reagan style). Gla should just have a collection of scud TELS grouped together. Again it would be cooler to give them Saddam's Babylon gun but we can't. I suppose the China nuke silo will just be a stationary mobile launcher :/ I honestly don't know since I haven't thought about it deeply yet.

FYI Dugway Proving Grounds is a private company test site under contract with the US army and USAF.

This photo was taken by 4 ATV enthusiasts at 1 in the morning near Dugway Proving Grounds Utah and was featured in the show UFO hunters. Thats a massive laser coming from the test site firing vertically into the atmosphere.

If its a laser it would be the current worlds most powerful variant as by by estimates the beam it self is any where from 2-4 meters wide 0.0

Regan's star wars program may have yielded some results after all tho albeit a bit late for the cold war.

Basically just change the particle beam to have a similar color/glow as the one depicted in the link ;)

We have not tested compatibility with any other mods. You are welcome to test that for us once the alpha is out :)

So far we have only replaced skins for a few inf units. We might replace models as well in the future.
