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 The crusader tank for example has been replaced by the M1A2 abrams.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

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!

  • Added upgraded Inferno Cannon (+ custom gibs)

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'm pretty sure you're suppose to be using Windows XP SP2 that's what I use when I run C&C in Compatability mode.

Sorry, I'm not working on the mod anymore. Nor is anyone. I'm afraid you'll have to do it. PM me for credentials and I'll give you access to update.

If it doesn't work with compatability mode SP2 it won't work with SP3 most likely.

I think to get the vehicles stats mostly to realism, put the Abrams as the Paladin, the M60 as the MBT. Just because the Abrams is that good...
