Command & Conquer Return of the Lost Generals is a Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour mod that plans to add 3 more factions to the current zero hour factions, while keeping the original factions completely untouched. In the first release, the GLA Technology General (Professor Takenik) will be included, giving him powerful vehicles and upgrades from the beginning while diminishing his stealth abilities. In subsequent releases, China Hacker General and USA Covert Ops General are planned.

As none of us are professional modders and we know nothing about making models, assistance would be appreciated for modelling. Currently the mod uses public use w3d models from Slepnir's Stuff forum at the following link:

Credits to the following people for the currently used models from the abovementioned forum:

  • TheHonestyFishZ
  • Sharpshark
  • Stalker

Thanks to Salvatore Vuono for parts of image used, and thanks to Slepnir for new shell menu. If anyone is left out for credits, kindly send a message and your name will be added!

Is the mod dormant or dead? I'm just asking. There's been no update since 2012 I think.

would you attempt for the next release for this mod to come with its own maps designed to support practice matches with each specific general? not like GC maps, but actual non-********, balanced custom maps?

that would definitely be a possibility... but currently I have been unable to solve a problem that is preventing me from designing the AI of the Covert Ops general... meanwhile the AI of Tech and Hacker Generals work perfectly and Skirmish games can still allow you to play practice matches

no offense intended, but if you used the hacker general against hard opponents or other players in a LAN game, this is the difficult and hard truth.

problem with hacker general. it doesn't support the air very well. its balanced up to a certain point, however they have no real anti-laser defense, absolutely no defense against any kind of toxins or radiation, and besides the Gatling guns, have nothing that can stop scuds, missiles, or other potential airborne hazards. they are a good faction for gathering $$$ but are slow on building anything, the tech general for GLA runs perfection, but the hacker general is only fast in resource gathering. if the construction speed could be decreased for the defenses and if they were given a bit more in terms of anti-air to air-air capability, then and only then would they be formidable. until that happens, they are pretty much dummy opponents used for testing out the other generals goodies and for getting platinum stars across all of the maps.

Well, the EMP MiG can take out an aircraft with a single missile, which seems pretty decent for air-to-air dogfights

however it cannot effectively stop tomahawk or scud strikes. let alone defend against laser based strikes.

Our aim with the China hacker general was not for steamrolling or turtling, and more for a high risk, high reward style of gameplay with units such as the Epic Lotus. Thus, she (the General) suffers in terms of defence. However, China has never really had an anti-laser system or a anti-rocket system and as such, we did not see the need to place one in.
