Rise of the Reds – or ROTR for short – improves upon the C&C Generals formula while also adding its own distinct elements to it. Most notably, the mod adds two completely new factions, the tank-heavy Russian Federation and the defence-oriented European Continental Alliance. In addition, the three original factions China, USA and GLA have been greatly expanded and redesigned in a variety of ways, with several new units, buildings, powers and abilities to explore and combine in your in-game tactics.
Part 1 of the Chinese Covert Campaign for the Mod Rise of the Red for Command and Conquer Generals.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS CAMPAIGN WILL ONLY WORK WITH ROTR 1.87, NOT 1.86. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE ALL MISSIONS ON 1.86 DUE TO THE CHANGES BETWEEN THE TWO VERSIONS.
As there has been a new version of 1.87 (2.0) I recommend you use that version to play this campaign. Using the previous version of 1.87 may work, however I cannot guarantee it.
To install 1.87, you must first become a member of SWR Productions, simply go to:
and register in order to download the latest version. Instructions on how to download 1.87 will be in the '1.87 Public Build Testing'. You don't have to be an active member, and it doesn't cost anything. Just use your membership to download if you wish.
To play this campaign, extract the mission files from the .zip file into:
Documents>Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data>Maps
Then open Rise of the Reds, go to Skirmish>Unofficial Maps, and they should be in there.
This is part one of the Fan-Made Chinese Covert campaign. I have decided to release the 4 completed missions in one file because unfortunately I have no motivation to finish the development of mission 5. I apologise to those of you that have followed the campaign progress on the SWR forum and have already played the missions. Rest assured, the bulk of mission 5 is done, all that is left is scripting and cinematic, fingers crossed I can get it done before the end of Summer.
This campaign takes place around the same time of Aleksandr's campaign, i.e before the Euro-Russian War. The relationship between China and Europe has soured after the Europeans threw the Chinese out months after their ultimate victory against the GLA in Germany.
Withdrawing her armies back to East Asia, China has resorted to Covert Operations led by Black Lotus Operatives to ensure that China remains the leading superpower of the world.
You have been chosen to sabotage the GLA, ECA and Russia by any means necessary to bring glory to the Middle Kingdom.
Good luck General.
