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.

If anybody has been or is experiencing slow loads or crashes - i could link you to where one could obtain easy to use tools & its free. For VGO, i was able to give it a 2mb boost to prevent crashes in case (although i never experienced any crashes myself)! The feedback i got from other mods was a thank you & it worked for them! This method was for WH40k mods but it appeared to work for all other mods as well. Forums.relicnews.com & Ntcore.com

Nice! The Sage engine isn't exactly known for being fast, so any little bit helps.

Yeah, all they had to do was ask for permission to use some contents & get a yes or no answer, instead they get sneaky & resort to piracy. Love this great mod!
