C&C: ShockWave is an enhancement mod for C&C Generals: Zero Hour. The main goal of this mod is to make Zero Hour a more interesting game with more diversity between the generals, making you think twice before you select a certain general, and overall provide more choices, diversity, and strategic freedom than in Zero Hour - while keeping the spirit and design direction of the original Generals game and storyline.

No! Part of the fun of Alexander is that she's got amazingly powerful weapons yet she's amazingly fragile, with power supplies and such being vital and expensive troops. This'll ruin it.

I don't know, I think it's right, I think everyone needs mobile anti-air.

But that defeats the point of a "hide and peek" general, the point is that she builds a solid base early on but can't get a solid mobile force till later in the game. With the marines and mortar you can have a solid rush strategy early on, but now...solid rush and base defence.

Perhaps when you purchase (or build it) first it is suppose to be a mortar humvee, then upgrade it into vulcan cannon? that might cost more, but think of a good combination for having both Mortar\Vulcan Humvee raiding enemy base.

maybe you cant get the anti air upgrade until lvl 3, but that would be stupid. Idk, maybe it is an upgrade on the humvee itself, not a tech upgrade

My only concern about this thing is plane kill balance, unlike Quads and Gattling Tanks, I think this unit should be more fragile to plane attacks.

"After some recent skirmishes, General Alexander became aware of her apparent lack of cheap and easily available AA."

It can also attack Infantry and it's made so you can upgrade one with the Vulcan and the other can be left with a mortar if you want.

Quit complaining about it, cause it's staying!

Okay, I was somewhat off.

"One such complaint was that General Alexander lacked early anti-air and anti-infantry capabilities. As solution to that problem, we introduced a new vulcan upgrade to Superweapon's Hummer

In future versions, the Mortar Hummvee will be able to individually trade of his mortar for this roof mounted vulcan, allowing more versatility and effective fighting against infantry and aircraft in early combat."

That is a very logical assumption and I'd have to agree with that.

However it is not in my power to telepathically shove information into other's brains. (that would be rather intereting if I could):P

yup stillgrey that is so true, that is obviously why so many people voted highly for this and less than a third of this mod's contributed votes payed mideast crisis some attention.

(by the way yes of course i was being sarcastic, i love this mod)

If you don't like this mod, don't come on the boards and blab about how some other mod is better. I think that Isotx mods suck, but I don't go over and say that because people work hard to create the mods and you should not come over and spit in their face after they have done a huge amount of work to produce the mod.

(@ GLAshooters) Ah, I personally hate missile based AA - so slow and by the time that AA missile has arrived, your unit has sustained damage already: Hence why Gatling guns are so much better than patriots at anti-air. There is a lot of targeting confusion too. There are so many times I see about 12 patriots shooting at a single jet. where there is a massive swarm coming.

But anyway, I would see this as more of a solution to the infantry, seeing as she is fairly weak against them. I mean she has the best Avenger by far. Easily. PWNs laser. I mean is shoots green things!

I'm pretty sure Laser's Avenger does the most damage, follwed by her's followed by the missile one.

sebb has a good point, missiles are often too inefficient despite the fact that they deal more damage. Plus bullet based AA bypasses any missile countermeasures i.e. plane flares, Townes' Lasers, or EM Disruptors. I hate launching salvos of missiles at Townes' Commanches only to see them get lasered away. This is a very nice and welcome addition. :)

After some recent skirmishes, General Alexander became aware of her apparent lack of cheap and easily available AA. A vulcan upgrade for her existing mortar hummer was thus proposed and accepted. The Vulcan cannon can be upgraded on individual mortar humvees to increase her ground force's virsatility. The Vulcan humvee will fire in deadly bursts of hot lead, sure to blow any aircraft out of the sky.
