CWC is a C&C Generals Zero Hour Total Conversion and also works with "The First Decade". It takes place from 1980-1989 and 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 we have a lot of infantry in the game, not all of them are just cannon fodder.

On April 20th, 2004 CWC was released to the public, which happens to be exactly 9 years ago today. That's a great reason to celebrate, if you ask us. But before we open the champagne, we also have two announcements to make:
 Our forum is even older than the mod itself, and we had to close it for new registrations a while back. Starting today, we want to provide an easier and more modern way for you to stay in contact with us, which is why we created a
 




Be sure to like it and spread the word! It will keep you informed about possible updates or other CWC related news.
Which brings us to the second announcement. If you ever got bored by CWC, you now need to find another excuse for not playing it anymore. Today, on our 9th birthday, we proudly present
 




For those of you who don't know yet, that's the codename for a random map generator for CWC. It can generate complete and fully playable skirmish maps in a matter of seconds. And do you know what's even better? It's open source! You can download, modify or extend the source code.So now, on to the party!

I never thought a map generator for Generals was possible... Could it be possible to use it with other mods?

Yes, it should also be possible to use it with other mods or even vanilla C&C Generals if some code is changed to fit those. As GENESIS is open source, anyone can fiddle around to make it fit for the mods they desire.

In the current version it was optimized for CWC maps of course. ;)

Skleni probably can answer this better than me though.

I just checked out your generator.
Most impressive work on that one i applaud you for your efforts.

The fact that you made it open source will make the future development of this tool very interesting.

9 years is a long time and I can't believe how fast it passed.
You are still the best generals mod, for me at least. Let us look forward to the 10th anniversary next year then :)
