• Enhanced Your Battlefield Visual

With the variety of advanced techniques and efforts, your battlefield is now implemented with modern-like bloom & SSAO effects, C&C3; lightrays style and depth of field and also ambient reflective waters. Yet, the environmental objects have been added and updated so to be said, grass, bushes, trees, rocks, water waves and wild animals. Yet another, the mod is also featured with higher resolution textures such as terrains, rocks, decal effects, etc.

  • Embraced A More Realistic Weaponry

In contrast of the vanilla game, this mod allows you to have a chance of avoiding bullets, missiles and one-shot garrison kills. Furthermore, you can block your nemesis's path by destroying their or your own vehicles or aircraft, creating a destructible hulks and debris just as in THQ's Company of Heroes or you could destroy the bridges which are the paths of the enemy or set trees on fire as your enemy burn to oblivious death. Tanks are now implanted with self-defense machine guns, making them more suitable for front line engagements, artilleries are now more deadly and fearsome from afar while infantries are used in a role of strike force.

  • Expanded Your Army And Arsenal

Just as a typical mod of a game, the mod adds a variety of new things to each faction. Such, the famous Abram Tanks for the main NATO force, the furious wind of the east empire, Storms and Typhoons for the PLA forces and the infamous Katyusha for the GLA. But, that's not the main concept of this mod. This mod is to bring you a "enhanced" feeling of the game, not adding tons of unit to it. Each insertion has a purpose and reason. Also, a new faction has been added, the "Boss" general aka Leang of the PLA forces.

  • Escalated A New Front

The mod will be featured with a brand new campaign based on a fictional story after the event of Zero Hour and also new challenge modes for those who hungered for more eradication and escalation which will all be remake from the original ones. Not only campaigns and challenges, this mod will also have new maps and mini-game maps such Stonewall, Blitzkrieg, Assassination, etc. Noted that this is only a future plan and isn't yet in a procedure of production.

This isn't actually a news article. This is a frontal page for easy link finding including the alternative links to download the beta itself and the patches. Now, you don't really have to submerge into the comments to find the links. That's about it.

Enhanced Beta 0.9.1 Installer Version Links (Mod Patch Needed):

Enhanced Beta Installer Version 0.9.1


Enhanced Beta 0.9.1 Non-installer Version Links (Mod Patch Needed):

Enhanced Beta Non-Installer Version 0.9.1

Download this original link below if you don't trust A-Vladimir1994's build above. If something goes wrong, blame him.
Patch#2 (29/07/2014) is included.

Patch#4.5 (7/01/2015) (Hot fix included):

When the patch has been updated, I'll change the date and the number above. Doesn't require previous patches.

Patches & Minor Updates:

The best way to possibly keep up with the patch and latest minor news is to check the Facebook page since more convenient for me. Facebook also has a external change log to see what the next patch has included.

Installation Tutorial Video by "CPro Racing" (Origin/Ultimate Edition):

Check out his Youtube channel here for car racing gameplays, FPS gameplays and random stuff: Youtube.com

Note: the font .reg isn't working as I intended. You may install the fonts manually, located in the installed mod folder. Future patch may fix the issue.

If you're having frequent crashes or game.dat crashes/stop working:
Try put compatible mode on the launcher or the executable files to Windows XP SP3. Also, try changing the maps you're playing.
Alternatively, try: Forums.cncnz.com
And this: Answers.microsoft.com

I basically tired of answering the same questions, that's all. So that's what I'm going to do.

No HD until I or who ever yet to come model an infantry. Even if it's already HD, the models are still ugly. Different skins are possible depending on the environment of the maps.

I have also been thinking about having different skins for different weather scenarios. In WorldBuilder you could choose NORMAL DESERT WINTER URBAN and so on. Impossible to achieve though...

I'm not sure, in case your CPU burned up :P, I have mid-high end but still lag and sometimes my PC freezes D: so I make a guess it's either due to my PC's age or the spec. So I put high-end spec just "in case".

"dont have the tree problem even if i run my Nvidia only" "my Nvidia is out of date"
