This mod adds some great new gameplay to the game. Virtually everything have been tweaked and modified and around 80 new units and 20+ new structures have been added. In combination with new generals, super weapons and powers. New music and sounds for some units. This mod will take the fight to the sea in huge naval battles between submarines, destroyers, battleships and gunboats. It will take fighting in the sky to new levels with a broad variety of aircrafts and helicopters. The GLA can now participate in these fights. But the real battle will take place on the ground, engaging mammoth overlords, light vipers and specialized infantry units. With tons of new and improved units to play with, Destructive Forces will keep you busy for hours! Skirmish is supported. "This mod does what Zero Hour did to Generals, to Zero Hour! Each side is even more diverse than before, some Generals may be absolutely horrible against others, and some may be a fair fight. The only units that are shared...

So, six years after the first release of Destructive Forces, I just had to give this project a proper closure. And what could be better than a working Skirmish AI? I fixed that, as good as I could and did some other things along the way, adding two new factions for example. This is the same version as the other V1.4 install but this one comes as an exe automated installer.

All previous generals will use their (one)SW and most of them will also use all their special-powers. All generals will actually build a base and attack with faction-specific units (note though that they will not use ALL units available to them), please see the info for the Artillery General since that one is a little special. Note that the above is true when playing with/against a HARD difficulty AI, Easy difficulty was not possible to address within this projects timeframe (even though easy and medium might still work somewhat ok..) AI will NOT build any naval units (that probably requires custom made maps with custom made scripts for DF, takes too much time).
The AI has been tested on HARD difficulty only, and only on official maps (even though custom made maps probably works too) and with starting cash above $20 000.For obvious reasons some generals will pose a greater challenge than others (no it's not unbalanced). Please read the README for further information.

---------Changes since version 1.3---------

-Worldbuilder is now functional (just ignore the two errortypes and it'll start)

It's a really solid and well made mod overall! And with an insane amount of new units and structures, you can have great fun just exploring the new factions! The only issue Is that It's not really balanced that well, but that is understandable! However that does not mean that the mod Is bad or impossible to play! Infact the only real complaint I had while playing this before was the crap AI which you seem to have fixed by now! So big thanks to you! Iit's great to see that a mod this old Is still being worked on.

anyway there was a bug int the 1.3 version. Every time you load a challange or campaign saved game, the game speed will be the fastest and it is impossible to handle the situations. When you just start a new game, the game speed is normal. Do anyone now how to resoove this issue?
Many thanks.

Whenever I install C&C Generals Zero Hour, this is pretty much something I install before I start playing. And it has been like that for 4 years, this is a truly great mod and one of the reasons I keep reinstalling this game.

Mh this mod was the best since i found it. But i still have one BIG COMPLAIN. It looks like this mod will start to lag, doest matter what you do. I once start a new game vs a hard AI, and over the gameplay it starts more and more to lag. (Get really slow, at the worst point, one super weapon second was about 3 or 4 real time seconds) And STILL IF YOU DEFEAT THE AI AND SELL EVERYTHING, till you only have one dozer on the map left. The lags stands. So its not a problem of the game traffic its (i guess) a wrong coding.. or i dont know. That's a bit sad :c

If using this installer file.
1) Install Zero Hour (clean installation), patch to 1.04 (not needed if you have C&C first decade).
2) Run the installer. Select the Zero Hour root directory as the install path (that is where zerohour.exe is located).
3) Done.

Don't use the automated install, but instead, use the .zip file (1.4 FULL). Then extract it into the your zero hour folder and it should work. Automated install has something that's wrong atm. If you don't understand what I am saying just reply :D
