Frontline Chaos is a Total Conversion mod for C&C Generals Zero Hour. It will replace the original sides, and introduce 2 brand new armies: Revenant and Legion. The mod's goals are to supply a completely new story, including campaigns for both sides, and a balanced and fun multiplayer experience.

In this (rather late) update, heavy helicopters and some sneaky previews.


As you may have noticed, it has been a while since there was an update. Fear not, this mod is not cancelled nor abandon. Over the past couple of months I was busy with various different things. Among those were:

  • things that will be shown in this update
  • things that will be shown in the future
  • helping / testing other mods
  • other games
  • RL (the horror!)

Especially the last one (RL) drained me of a lot of inspiration and energy to make something that can be shown. Work and other responsibilities can and will take much of your time, I can assure you.

Lack of inspiration to continue on the things you were doing makes you look towards alternatives, and branch out to other things. As a wise man once said: "Every disadvantage has its advantage", I've been revamping several of the default FXs from Generals to make them look better.
Explosions look a lot more... explosive, several effects for certain events have been added were they were missing, and overall things look better if I can say so. Said effects have also been supplemented by new sounds for extra oof-ness.

Another aspect I've been looking into is the design of Legion vehicles, both model-wise and texture wise. I can reveal that two Legion vehicles so far have been given a new model, and are in the progress of being unwrapped and textured. I have ideas for revamping several of the other vehicles in the Legion arsenal, but those are basically raw ideas and sketches.

Anyway, time to show the actual work done. I present to you, the Dragonfly:

Revenant Dragonfly Assault Helicopter

The Dragonfly is the main assault helicopter used by Revenant forces. While sharing the ability to haul heavy loads like its unarmed cousin the Mayfly, the Dragonfly is much more heavier armoured and armed to the teeth with various weapons. In the default configuration preferred by most commanders it is armed with a turret mounted chaingun and autocannon, and rocket pods hung from the wings. The chaingun and autocannon are effective against soft or lightly armoured targets, while the rockets are used to hunt down heavier armoured targets.

As a trade-off for the extra armour and armaments, the Dragonfly has a lower maximum carry weight then its cousin. Nonetheless, its hauling capabilities are still far greater then most helicopters. A Dragonfly can easily haul an armoured cargo pod around, with room for 5 soldiers or an armoured vehicle.

Last but not least, I would like to take the time to link you guys to several of the projects I've been helping / testing the past couple of months (or in some cases, years). Give them a look ;)

And with that public service announcement, this is the end of this month's / quarter's (scrap what doesn't fit) update.

Hey Dutchy
Good job on the MO stream
Just wondering are we still commanding Legion and Revenant and the Factions in the news item are just history or are the TDA, Lunar Wolves and People's Alliance the new factions?

TDA, Luna Wolves and People's Alliance were the factions that where battling before the time period in which Frontline Chaos takes place. They are lore-only sides, and won't be featured in the mod besides some references to them.
The Revenant and Legion are still the only playable factions in the mod.

I can reveal I've been working on something where I can place all my lore and ramblings for the public to view. It's still in its initial stages, so I won't reveal anymore.

Also, good to hear you enjoyed the MO stream :)
