Vietnam Glory Obscured is a total conversion for Command and Conquer Generals: Zero Hour that simulates jungle warfare during the Vietnam War with unique gameplay elements such as village occupation and reputation, jungle combat and modular construction.
Things are moving along well with the NVA faction. It is essentially code complete, art is almost done, and ground work for the AI is in process. New maps are being created as well. The way the NVA plays is quite different than anything we've seen before and we hope it feels fresh and new to everyone when it's finally released.
The Utility Factory (left image) builds all the support units such as the Mechanic and theType 85 ARV. It has the Watch Tower module and the SA-2 module shown on it. These modules occupy slots on the structure and can be swapped out for other modules. The Watchtower spots hidden units and shines a light on them. The SA-2 is a long range missile that will track any air unit in range.
The Medium Factory (right image) builds all medium rated units such as the T54 Tank and the Sharpshooter. In the picture the Pillbox module and the ZPU4 module can be seen. The pillbox is the anti infantry solution to structure defenses and the ZPU4 is the quick and cheap solution for AA.
This Month in Vietnam - April 1968
U.S. forces in Operation Pegasus finally retake Route 9, ending the siege of Khe Sanh. A 77 day battle, Khe Sanh had been the biggest single battle of the Vietnam War to that point. The official assessment of the North Vietnamese Army dead is just over 1,600 killed, with two divisions all but annihilated. But thousands more were probably killed by American bombing.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Vietnam Glory Obscured. We love games like C&C Generals: Zero Hour that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
