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 The crusader tank for example has been replaced by the M1A2 abrams.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.

VRM 0.5 Released!

2 years ago News 19 comments

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 B-52

  • Added new shell map
  • Added new skin for worker

First update of the new year, the new version, the new post-apocalyptic world.

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.

I have the mod installed and it works in skirmish mode but when I connect with my friend it says can't connect different versions. I know we both have the same version because we've both only ever installed this mod from vanilla C&C Generals installs. My questions is does this mod support multiplayer?

Yep, I play with my friend. It must be another difference (way that you installed it maybe?).

To unistall just delete the VisualRealityMod.big file.


Can this be used with vanila C&C Generals? I have no problem launching Zero Hour but get a serious error when trying Generals. Thanks.

EDIT: I'm using First Decade so I'm pretty sure everything is patched to the latest.
