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 you are experiencing mismatches, it is probably because you don't have the same version of the mod. The other issue could be one of you has The First Decade version of ZH and the other has the original release of ZH. Unfortunately, the only way to resolve that issue is to make sure you both have the same release of the game.

As far as setting up an online game, you could watch our video on how to set up Hamachi and join our rooms, you could also create your own room for just you and your friends.

Oh and what is "Field Operations"?

Ranger_Logan Jul 13 2012, 4:53pm replied:

Do you get this on all the mod's maps and villages or just one in particular? If so, please provide a more detailed bug report. It can't be a coding issue of the entire village logic, since you've just noticed this now. So it's probably a map issue or some buggy mod install.

We tend to have more installation issues rather than within the mod.

The $ does not change colour; it appears when there are 2000VND of troops in the glowing ring. The colour of the beam above the master hut and the ring around the village will change colour when this occurs.

What is the objective of the gamemode bombardment?

Bombardment is similar to your standard matches, simply destroy your enemy.

However you can also fight for Battleship Control Points on the map that gives you access to the USS Missouri Battleship or USS Enterprise Aircraft depending on the map or intel (full view of the map).
