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.

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

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

-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

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

6 comments by XitArS on Feb 11th, 2012

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

If you installed the mod with the installer, just run the uninstaller (located in Zh root dir) and copy over the original Skirmish-scripts (the Scripts-folder), located in the downloaded installation zip-file, to your "ZH-root directory\Data\Scripts".

If you installed it with the manual method, just delete the "DestructiveForcesV1.4.big"-file from your Zh root directory. And of course, IF you changed the name of the Scripts folder (in case you didn't then you haven't been playing with the DF custom Skirmish AI scripts), change it back to the original name.

There was an error in the first release (check comment #4 on the download-comments). Please download the new version ( or the installer) to solve the above mentioned crash.

5 minutes into a skirmish game, it crashed. It says:
Description: The thread tried to read from or write to a virtual address for which it does not have the appropriate access.

I have windows 7 but I've enabled compatibility mode for windows xp and I run it as admin plus I disabled UAC. I have 4gb ram and 15 gb of virtual memory so I don't know what the heck went wrong.

Does this crash occur while playing with/against the USA air force general? Because in that case, the bug is mentioned in the README, and there is no fix atm. You shouldn't have to play the game in compatibility mode or anything like that. If this crash occurs while playing against/with any other general than the above mentioned, please PM me with the details and the full error-code.

This mod seems wonderful!
What about challenges, are working? or do you plan to make em?
Challenges(on Hard) are the best part of Generals (&mods of it) for me - i miss the early '2000 LAN parties(But now i'm living in Palermo - a primitive zone of the God forsaken land - only PlayStation monkeys around)

I think most challenges should work, although I know that one or two will crash the game. Well, good thing you have internet ;). There are still ppl playing this game on gamespy, gameranger and on various hamachi networks. but yea, I also miss those LAN parties, back in the old days :).

Are you using the installer or installing manually? Is your ZH patched to version 1.04 or are you using C&C First Decade? Make sure there are no leftovers from any other mod...Does it crash instantly when starting the game? Try reinstalling ZH if you have had any other mods installed.
