CWC is a C&C Generals Zero Hour Total Conversion and also works with "The First Decade". It takes place from 1980-1989 and it features realistic units from the 80's.
We want CWC to be a mixture of realism and fun. CWC is more realistic than vanilla Generals, with real life weapon systems and side specific characteristics.
CWC offers 2 factions: Russia and USA. The Russians tend to use tanks and artillery (for example: T-72 / T-80, BM-21, 2S1 only to mention a few) while the USA rely on aircraft and high tech units (for example: F-15, F-16, F-117, A-10 etc.).

Also we have a lot of infantry in the game, not all of them are just cannon fodder. So engaging a T-80UK with a US Rifleman won't be a good idea. Other infantry units can be a real pain in the ass to armoured units though. We want the players to use more infantry than in regular Generals, where infantry wasn't the big deal. In CWC Infantry can be very useful, even against tanks if you have LAW/RPG-Soldiers.

Awesome mod, but WAY too challenging on easiest difficulty. Is it possible to manually adjust AI difficulty via an .ini file or something, making it similar to a standard "easy" mode?

Get to the flags fast and defend them with garrisoned troops. I have beaten even the hardest AI by just being quick and turtling it up a bit. Once they send arty at you use arty of your own or long range AT planes like the A-10, Su-25T :)

Is there any documentation regarding the Genesis map generator? Every time I run it, it either stops working or does not give me any options.

Hello, im struggling to win with russian side. American is easy, just spam anti-tank rocket soldiers, bradley, abrams and cobra helis when you get them.
Is there somewhere any strategy guide for playing with the russian side in this mod ?

First of all, this game is not about spam.
Soviet AT vehicles have better turn rate and rate of fire while lacking brute firepower of TOWs. Also Soviet advanced tanks (Abrams level) have ATGMs, so you can kite enemy tank and snipe few of them before they even fire back at you.

This mod is how Generals should have been. The quality of the work done in CWC is remarkable. I followed this mod ever since I first saw it in 2005, the first things that caught my eye was BMPs floating on water, just like in real life. The only game I had seen that in was Operation Flashpoint. So began a long wait, I visited the CWC website every week looking for updates, and every time there was an update it gave me a smile. I eventually registered at the CWC forums and posted a few posts. My…
