Operation:Firestorm is a modification for Command and Conquer Generals - Zero Hour


Description:

The goal of Operation:Firestorm (O:FS) is not to redefine, but to enhance the C&C Generals multiplayer and skirmish gameplay experience. The core gameplay as well as the base factions will stay the same, but are both greatly extended and improved. This mod has been under development for a few years by Stalker and pWn3d, with recent support from No Life Studios, and we are proud to present our work to the public.


Features:

Playable Sides:
This mod features 9 playable Generals, 3 of each base faction. (China, GLA, USA)
The current release (Beta 02) features 8 of the following Generals:

China:
General Xiang - Red Army (link to changelog)
General Tao - Nuclear Weapons (link to changelog)
General Leang - Secret Weapons

GLA:
General Assaf - Fortifications
General Juhziz - Terror (link to changelog)
Dr. Thrax - Biochemical Weapons (not yet available)

USA:
General Ironside - High-Tech
General Granger - Airforce (link to changelog)
General Wilson - SOCOM (link to changelog)

New Content:
All playable generals will be able to use a large arsenal of new units, buildings, superweapons and
upgrades. The default tech-tree has been expanded by an additional structure to unlock advanced units and upgrades.


Main Gameplay-Changes:

Generals-Powers:
All generals will feature a unique tree of 23 available Generals-Powers, including usable abilities,
upgrades and unit-unlocks. Each general will have a number of abilities available to choose from at each rank. (3 at rank 1, and 5 at the ranks 2-5). After rank 5 (5-Star General) is reached, you will still be able to gain experience to unlock all the other Generals-Powers, up to Rank 21 (Supreme Commander).

Unlockable Units:
Each side has a number of units or buildings that are unlockable by a Generals-Point. All Super-heavy tanks (Overlord, Mammoth, etc.) and Heavy Artillery (SCUD-Launcher, Nuke Cannon, etc.) require a Generals-Point at Rank 3 or higher. A lot of these units will also be limited to a certain number (All Super-Heavy Tanks, Aurora Bombers, Topol-M, etc.).

No Over-Specialisation:
While all Generals are specialised in a certain field, all sides will have a complete arsenal of weapons.
That means all Generals have Tanks, Aircraft (GLA as well), and Artillery available, although with certain limitations.

Balance Changes:
A lot of unit-stats have been changed from default Zero Hour, to improve the balance in O:FS. A larger list of changes can be found here (note: this list is outdated)


Other Features:

Improved audio and video quality:
A lot of Zero Hour models, sounds and effects have been replaced by higher-quality ones. Overall this mod provides a better visual experience, while keeping the Generals-style.

High-Quality User Interface:
All parts of the UI as well as all button-icons now use high-resolution textures.

Widescreen Support:
O:FS will provide UI textures for both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratio, allowing you to play Zero Hour in full HD.

Multi-Language:
This mod will be available in English and German language. This also includes all new unit voices.


Release & Update Schedule:
We try our best to keep you updated about O:FS and we still have a lot to show. While we have no fixed schedule, we aim to release a batch of informations and images in regular intervals.
A third release is planned (including Dr. Thrax), with no fixed date yet.

Hello everyone,

I'm confident to say the Operation Firestorm Beta 03 release is on its way. The planned content for Dr. Thrax is almost ready, and we're currently in the final stages of polishing and testing.

In addition, lots of bugs have been fixed, and performance has been improved.

I'm also happy to announce that Beta 03 will feature a completely remade AI which is currently in the works by Mizo.

Now for another teaser, here's a preview of slightly improved Scud Launcher models and FX for Terror and Chem General.

To ensure a high quality release, lots of testing is required.

Alpha testing for OFS 03 has officially started!

If you want to participate testing the new content and the AI and help improve balance in the mod, head over to the NLS Public discord server for more information.


I hope you enjoyed this update. See you soon!

I tried the new version of the game and i didn't really enjoy the new ai, they just do cheesy tactics, i enjoy the more epicness of the current released version of ai because they attack with a large amount of units rather than do technical with four suicide bombers.

To add more into zeke's point, SAGE is really not optimized. Not everyone has a PC that can handle an AI that spams large amounts of units.

This is one of the reasons why I reworked it like this. The AI does not get alot of cheat cash unlike before, hence why they have to rely on smart tactics.

That's mostly for the harder difficulties. Part of the purpose of the AI is to play more human like, to teach you more about the game, and encourage you to try other units and tactics.

But if you don't want that, you can just stick with 'easy' difficulty.

This mod is absolutely amazing and definately deserves more players! You can see the love for detail in so many aspects of this. In my opinion the best mod for Generals atm.

Is there a community of players playing this mod online? And if yes, how can i get in contact with them? :)

Keep up the good work guys! Thanks for the effort you put into this!
