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.
I really like the concept of this. However, it feels really unbalanced when playing. Not enough time to build a defense. The enemy always seems to have the upper hand no matter how fast you build or capture points. Maybe its just me. I would like to see the defensive structures released earlier instead of using generals promotion to get it. Or a faster way to collect resources so that I can build units to defend my base. Great mod and runs smooth. Units are effective and efficient against what they were designed to destroy. Love the realism. My only issue is really the resources.
It is a very good mod with a ton of units. I love the realistic firing mode and I love small detail such as the Tungska having camo when not moving. I love the campaign because it not your standard boring building a base mission. I also love the way the building look however I think it could be a little bit better. I know that it out of place but I wish you guys would have the USSR barrack as shown in the screenshot with a picture of Stalin in the front.
I'm mostly deducting 2 stars, well 1 star since I haven't met a perfect RTS mod as of yet is that the biggest map in the game is only 4 players? I was hoping for 8 players or was it 6 players like in the vanilla ZH.
Lastly I just want to say you guys really did research and know how to make an accurate realistic military mod. However I wish general had better graphic engine like those of C&C3/Red Alert 3/DOW but this has nothing to do with any deduction. This is just the fact that with a better engine, this mod would be even more amazing!
