Well guys, after a VERY long hiatus.. I'm back. Sorta...

Unfortunately, as most of you knew already, modding is no longer an interest of mine... I've grown up, in school, have a full time job, and may have a baby on the way..

With a heavy heart, I am forced to close this mod forever... Unless another mod team steps up. (MORE THAN ONE PERSON)

That being said, I'm uploading everything I have created with a single disclaimer..

All of it belongs to Microsoft.

good to know you're making a new release !! Can't wait to play it ! I hope you'll bring some rockets to unsc ships and some fast hornets so that it could be more balanced. Indeed, covenants are too powerful because of their banshees and phantoms...!!

So, couple questions. First off, what made you decide to completely let go of the generals powers and the menu? Second, I noticed as i was playing the new version you helped me get(since i have been playing .60 this whole time), i noticed other tech buildings were missing for capture in order to get more resources, was wondering why you got rid of them, or will you be briging them back, and how you go about getting more resources if you are only allowed certain limit to buildings that provide $$$? I know alot...just was fumbling around the files and editing to see if maybe i did something wrong. Btw side note, the grunts ie workers have a flood cameo not know why lol.

well, I decided to get rid of the powers because they, to me, unbalance an already purposefully unbalanced game, same with the tech buildings, although, if you poke around in the ini file you will see a particular "tech" building that will be in some maps, and my reasoning behind only one building to get money is, you have an infinite source of money from the ship orbiting the planet, but im trying to add a little surprise in (really jumbled, just brainstorming lol)

Um, hey i finally decided to join and say this mod is so great and exciting. Keep up the good work. By the way, i love the mod so far, but how do you disable SW (superweapons)? The nukes do not work for me at all and they become overpowered when the AI uses them lol.

go to the news section on here, download the .70 release, drop into your zero hour directory, it might be a good idea to download the .60, install it, then delete the .60 big file from ZH, Then install .70... the superweapons were disabled in the .70 i think lol

Thank you, I did not have to edit the .big file myself to prevent SW, and forgot to add in .70 while deleting .60, i downloaded but never remembered to replace it XD.

I've downloaded and installed the mod and can't get it to work. Once it was downloaded, I put it in the C&C Zero Hour folder and it's not working. Btw, I'm running Windows 7

Um, you might have two different program files, one thats program files and the other that has a 86x or 78x next to it. You should install on the one thats not the regular PF or install on both.
