Release gen-20230927

News 1 comment

Hello, everyone. After wasting my whole summer on this, i'm glad to announce release of version gen-20230927 for Generals Alpha. After several failed attempts at half-assing the engine update for the mod, i ended up finally going all the way and merge the custom engine used by Generals Alpha with the engine that was already in use by Romanov's Vengeance and Shattered Paradise. I would like to thank dnqbob for his help with the update, implementing a lot of the missing stuff and improving the AI.

Here are a some new stuff for the mod. I'm most likely missing several things as this update has been in works for several months for now and i didn't write a changelog during development.

  • Updated engine version to latest version of OpenRA.
  • Added Selection UI at the bottom left of the screen, showing selected units, their upgrades and others stats related to them.
  • Added Garrison logic for civilian buildings.
  • Added Patriot Missile System target logic.
  • Added Merge Generals lobby option, which gives players access to units and bonuses from all of the generals of the faction.
  • Added visual effects for Cold Fusion Reactor upgrades and Nuclear Reactor overcharge ability.
  • Added symbols showing subfactions to the Command Centers.
  • Added proper effect for Countermeasures upgrade.
  • Added Booby Traps upgrade, uses the unused cameo from the original game as opposed to same dynamite pack that Tank Hunters use.
  • Added Tech Artillery Platform, altho it is currently only used on Tank General's Challenge map.
  • Added Cash Hack ability for Black Lotus.
  • Added sounds for units entering/leaving vehicles/buildings.
  • Added several new maps.
  • Reworked the AI as Easy, Normal and Hard AIs as opposed to Rush, Normal and Turtle AI that came from OpenRA's RA mod.
  • Reworked mine respawn logic to handle it individually for each mine.
  • Reworked firestorm logic to be closer to the original.
  • Reworked Artillery Barrage ability to be closer to the original.
  • Reworked superweapons to match closer to the original.
  • Remade all the cameos in PNG format in order to keep the color quality from the original game.
  • Removed lobby options related to building placement. Human players can now always only place buildings around Construction Vehicle that built it, while AI can always cheat to place around other buildings.
  • General's Power abilities now start fully charged.
  • Patriot Missile System is now 1x1 instead of 2x1.
  • Supply Drop Zones now actually have a plane delivering a crate.
  • Missile Defenders now need to wait for laser lock to fire faster with force fire.
  • Demo Trap now requires Arms Dealer as in the original game.
  • Improved the AI in many other ways.
  • Workers no longer ask for shoes after you gave them some.
  • Fixed several other inconsistencies with the original game.

Why is this mod so different from the stuff in Cameo? I'm surprised the two mods didn't work together more.

This was made way before Cameo. I intended to help them a bit when i found it but couldn't get around to it. I'm already busy with a lot of mods.

Absolutely awesome mod - It is amazing how much work you have done. The only issue I am having is that I am unable to download the generals music (some sort of SSL error or somesuch). Not a drama of course, I can just play something else in the background ;)

Great mod dude! Is it possible to change the strenght of the nuke tank unit and aurora plane, or make these unit more expensive so the gamplay will improve. The offline AI seems to be a bit broken, sometimes doesn't work at all. The multiplayer is working properly when the versions are the same of the players. Keep the updates coming, works fine with git pull on windows as well linux with the supplied make scripts. Better as some of the mods i tried to install so thankz and have a great weekend.

I have been workign on weapons yesterday and today. I have finally figured out how exactly original weapon spread worked. Nuke Cannon should be more like original already, thanks for reminding the Aurora, i haven't updated it yet. Soon all the weapons should be more like original.

OpenRA's AI is not really good anyway, even with the improvements of mine to make them work with some of the Generals logics, it still don't work reliably.
