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.

Wow guys i'm stuned at the...the.. everything. Everything was perfect. I thought that because the movie was really long would you be able to make it so you can stop it and get on with the mission because I failed the first mission and had to watch the whole wonderfull movie again but yet again failing because my anti air was gone and i died from a Russian Hind. It seemed to me that the tanks and the.. wella all the buildings and stuff had been so well done i though this was a new game . Will you be making the pilots eject from the helicopters or is there a part i missed in Society & Environment about men bailing out of choppers. Didn't find any bugs or things missplaced. I do have another Question..? What will you use to build building??? The voices now were do i begin... absalutely helarius and they fit the timeline.

I also think that our Unitlist is big enough, no need to add more stuff to it. ~40 new units per faction should to the job ;)

Since the F-14 is carrier-based, it isn't featured in CWC. Sorry for that ;)

Hey Bromly,

thanks for your comment. It's cool to hear that people enjoy CWC.

We'll include pilots bailing out of aircraft. Helicopters that are able to emergency land when they go down might also be able to let the pilots leave the chopper. One little hint, when you've seen the intro video just save the game and then, next time you can just load that savepoint to avoid seeing the intro over and over again. We can't fix that, it's a SAGE (=ZH engine) limitation. Another thing that works sometimes, use ALT+Tab to go to Windows and press ALT+Tab again, now your video should be skipped, too.

So long, greetings from CWC, yours 2312222

Just played the demo and it was awesome! I cant wait to do a free form skirmish or a full campaign with all the units. My only complaint was that the cutscenes seemed to be a video file rather than machinima, so i couldn't pause it. Nothing too major i suppose but someone could miss something. Keep up the great work :D

Cool! Look at the graphics, especially the M1A1, REAL GOOD!!!

And finally we get to USE the A-10. Was dying to "custom-attack" using A-10 strike but couldn't. Thanks so much for making this mod.

... there won't be nuclear weapons since they would ruin our gameplay. We don't have "Superweapons" like you know them from Generals, but we have alot of special abilities and as you can see on the Pics our units are powerful enough (sweet Napalm) to destroy the enemy, no Superweapons needed ;)

Great, great looking mod. I can't wait for it to come out, and I won't bother you either by demanding a specific release date. In any case, are there going to be any nuclear weapons in this mod?

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…
