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.

Hey guys! Trying to find new versions of the mod is really hard thing. Please, upload new versions of this delightful mod to the moddb page(at least, temporary). I mean that new alphas are really good, but much people hasn't discovered it bcos they don't have discord. It will be really generous gift, thank you!

For some reason, after even following the install directions, it will only launch Zero Hour vanilla, does anyone know how to fix this?

Download GenPatcher: Legi.cc
Apply Fixes then reinstall the mod

If you are using the Origin version, disable Origin ingame and Cloud Saves for Zero Hour before installing GenPatcher

If you installed it via origin, it's because EA made some stupid changes. Non origin version works without issue.

Why does the faction of Terror and Fortress AI script doesn't properly work in Skirmish, it will take them about 15 minutes before even building a whole base. Is it a bug? The script for the other factions works well. Love your mod btw

Hello, actual NLS mod here. As has been said many times before, the OFS Alpha build link remains in our Discord server because the developers feel that it is not ready for a proper ModDB release yet. Anyone who tries to forcefully reverse this decision will be reported, you have been warned.

If you want to play the Alpha, you can simply get it from our server: Discord.gg

If you have problems getting into the server, then message me.

If you do not wish to do either of those things, for whatever reason, then you can leave.

Hello, I like your work for a long time. Since 2017, this mod has not been updated. When can I play it?
