Vietnam Glory Obscured is a total conversion for Command and Conquer Generals: Zero Hour that simulates warfare during the Vietnam War. The mod features unique gameplay elements such as village occupation and reputation, jungle combat and modular construction.

Two completely different factions, the United States of America and the North Vietnamese Army, are represented with realistic units from the time period and present very different gameplay styles and strategies. Infantry warfare is very important; vehicles and aircraft must be supported to be successful and all units have multiple direct counters.

Custom maps are designed to provide novel strategic choices while being aesthetically pleasing, with a variety of different styles, layouts and game modes. Custom designed jungle trees create realistic jungles that camouflage infantry for ambushes and provide bonuses to NVA infantry; they can catch and spread fire dynamically, as well as be poisoned by Agent Orange.

Game modes include Bombardment, with a capturable Battleship or Aircraft Carrier for the USA and total map vision for the NVA, and King of the Hill, where a player must hold the hill area for a given period of time to be victorious.

This style of gameplay has never before been seen in Command and Conquer Generals, and makes for a whole new experience.

The Auto Updater

We are now offering a full download that comes with an auto updater. Once the mod is installed, any small fixes or changes will be updated automatically whenever you start the mod launcher if you are connected to the internet.

The speed of the downloads for the auto updater will range in speed depending on how fast your connection is, how many people are currently updating, and your location. If you are having issues with the Auto Updater, please check out our common issues thread.

The updater allows this mod to be compatible with any other mods that use mod launchers, including Shockwave and Cold War Crisis.

the first version of the mod will be released as soon as coding and beta testing is completed. thats really all we are waiting on. we don't want to release it full of bugs, we want you all to like it and come back for future releases, not leave with a bitter taste in your mouth and never come back.

hang in there, we are trying to get it done as fast as we can.

This is the sort of mod that would make me reinstall a mediocre game to play it.
It looks like a very high quality mod, and compared to some of the other Generals mods, it is definitely the best. The units and effects are very realistic looking, and I definitely enjoy the theme (don't forget to include music from that time era!).

I definitely can't wait for the release of this. Good luck and finish it up as soon as possible !

Just FYI we have changed our name from Vietnam Reborn to Vietnam Glory Obscured.
Why you ask? Well the answer is in our FAQ. But here is the answer:

>There are two reason for the name change. Too many mods have Reborn tagged onto them and we wanted to seperate ourselves from the crowd. Also, "Glory Obscured" seems to fit better with the war we are trying to represent. America didn't welcome the soldiers back from Vietnam as heroes, but treated them badly. Very different from how soldiers were welcomed back after World War 2.
