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, superweapons 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 specialised 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 even between the countries are the supply gatherers, and sometimes even that's not the case!"

Here are the new generals you get to play around with.

USA:
-Airforce General
-Tech & Naval General
-Commander in Chief
-Assault General

China:
-Tech & Naval General
-Commander in Chief
-Artillery General
-EMP & Napalm General

GLA:
-Stealth & Naval General
-United Arabs
-Terror Leader
-Toxic Warfare General

-Mother of all coalitions (MOAC)
-United Generals

14 new generals, more than 85 new units, new Generals powers and plenty of Naval units, what more could you ask for?

Designed for multiplay with unique strength and abilities for all different generals. A general superior in one type of game may be useless in another....

NOTE: This mod is for Zero Hour only, and for the English version. IF you have another version all in-game text will not display properly. To fix this : copy the contents in the English folder to your language-folder located in "gamedir/Data".

Download available through moddb

MOD UPDATE:
Version 1.4 is now available for download (as soon as it has been approved by moddb).

About six years from initial release of this mod (that means about three weeks ago), I heard about C&C Generals 2 (release date late 2012). So I just had to once again play some Destructive Forces to relive some fun LAN moments. Now, since this was a Skirmish-endeavor I couldn’t help but notice the lack of AI in this mod. And even though I know that I’ve said to myself in the past that fixing the AI was too complicated, I couldn’t resist starting up World Builder and play around. So I decided to start this last™ project with DF, codenamed “Make the AI use the SW for all sides, and add in some other AI enhancements like building units and attacking”. Now, I am nowadays a busy guy so the time-budget for this project was at max 2h/day for a period of two or so weeks (I like to “finish” things I start). Now, 40 or so hours later, with 80% of that being skirmish game-time, I hereby give you version 1.4 of Destructive Forces with working* AI, two new generals and some smaller changes.

You can grab the latest version here

So here's a stupid question. Why the hell is Easy AI practically non-existent (in that they barely do anything) yet the next difficulty up, Medium, is like it gets jacked all the way up to Hard? I've noticed this problem in a few mods already. Seriously people, is it really that hard to make "Medium" balanced between Easy and Hard? Was really starting to like this mod, too. :/

FINALLY ITS BACK!!! but i got one small problem, when i create a game in MULTIPLAYER > NETWORK when i play Aganist CPU with my friends It quit, but without the CPU only with my friends it doesn't Please am waiting for this solution...

I Have read the "READ ME" and followed the instructions and the mod works perfectly.

Second installation option:
1) Copy the file "Destructive_ForcesV1.4.big" to your ZH configuration folder.
On windows 7 that would be: "C:\Users\<yourusername>\Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data\",
which equals to "My Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data\"

2) Create a shortcut to your generals.exe (the Zero Hour one).
3) Right klick it, select properties, look under the tab "Shortcut". In the target-field, insert "-mod Destructive_ForcesV1.4.big" after the path ".
Example of the targetfield: "C:\Program Files\C&C Generals\Zero Hour\generals.exe" -mod Destructive_ForcesV1.4.big

4) Start the mod from this shortcut, the original generals.exe will start the original game.
**DONE**

PLEASE NOTE: If you choose the second installation option, some features for Destructive FOrces might not work. For example, the increased camera height
will be defaulted as well as some other mod-specific settings. Also, you won't be able to play online/LAN with anyone that uses the other installation-option.

i have did this Right exactly and carefully...

If you are not using the automated installer, to use the custom DF AI Skirmish Scripts you'll need to rename the Scripts folder to anything but "Scripts", otherwise It'll only use the default AI scripts. But if you use the "Second installation option" the custom AI scripts will not get loaded anyway...

what i want u to solve is when we create MULTIPLAYER>NETWORK>LAN... player1,Player2"which is my friend" VS. CPU's. game started, few seconds more while we playing it apperas this at the top "Game Has Detected a mismatch. This means multiplayer game has lost synchronization data between the players."
