Because vanilla Generals isn't good enough for you. Realism overhauls and graphical enhancements are the main points of existence of this mod. If you want tons of new units, this is not the mod for you.

This update is about new PLA arsenals, units and more. This is only a preview of the progression and where the mod stands. Also, what I'm up to.

Posted by on

After being gone for like two months or so, I've actually got a free time to do renders and stuff for this project. I did what I could for the meantime and it's not much.

Right now, I already have list of "what to do" written down so I should know what I'll be doing. However, the future updates might not be as frequent as before since I'm still bound to the university stuff. So basically, I've done with the prequel test stuff but I still don't know if I've actually made it or not until the end of December this year. If I've made it, I'll be able to work on the mod in full capacity as before. So, pray me for succeeding in entering a university, I'll appreciate it a lot.

Now, enough of that. Let's get to the main stream.


This is PLA "Hong" Dragon Tank. So familiar? Well, yes, it's fuck is. This is a model made by Creator and DCesarec currently use in Contra mod. But why is it here? That is easy, we've made a deal.

According to Wikipedia, "Hong" is a two-headed dragon in Chinese mythology regardless of the rainbow part.

This is PLA Armoured Gattling
. Fires at its normal rate but has furthermore armour reinforcing and can be out run by its slow turning and pitching rate. Nevertheless, it's an excellent defense against frontal attacks, giving Tao ability to establish a safer base.

General Tao
Weapon: Dual Gattling
Armour: Heavy Plate
Speed: Slow
Upgrade: Chain Gun, Radioactive AP Rounds

This is PLA Ravager Tank
. Basically, this tank is a mobile missiles launcher based on Battle Master's chassis. This gives it a maneuver speed and medium protection against minor attacks, increasing its battlefield survival rate. Also, this gives it the speed to mobile and fire at enemies, providing it with attack and move combat style, suits with the mobile force of tanks like General Kwai's.

Thank you for reading if you actually have read the entire thing. It's very tiring to write stuff D:
In the end, I would like to thanks Creator big time for making these awesome models and stay tune for more updates in the future and see you later.

google "3ds max 3 point lighting"
the most default light setup used everywhere on the world from photography to rendering.
