I would like to make new mod for Generals Zero Hour, the main point of this mod is to keep purity (original) Zero Hour concept, and just add new factions, but these factions will be already made factions from another mods. I don't want to force experienced players from original Zero Hour and from another mods to learn to play this mod, if you know well to play with one faction in Zero Hour or in your favorite mod you will know to play here too.
This is not my first modding for some game, i already made mods for some another games.
I really love Zero Hour as game and all 12 factions. But this game will be more interesting with more factions.
KINDS OF MODDERS (SKIP THIS STEP):
There are several kinds of modders in global view, first will share their work (code, models, etc) with everyone and you never need to ask them for any permissions and their main goal is to made something for fun and to improved gameplay on any way (i am that type), second are very strict and don't want to share their content with anyone, their content is only in their mod, and they will start war with everyone if they see their hard work in another mods and you will never get permission or answer from them (it is very selfish, but its very respectable, I really understand them and respect their decision, they spent a lots of hours to made something and you want their hard work in your mod, sorry but keep your hands away, whatever, i respect any decision and I understand them, but I do this in commercial projects only), third will maybe give you, but them is very important to first ask them for permission, if you don't ask them, they will be very insult and angry on you.
Main idea is to keep all Zero Hour factions as in original Zero hour, keep it purity and concept, and just add new factions, there are lots of another interesting mods and a lots of excellent and well balanced armies in them, i really want to add a lots of new factions in this new mod.
Don't worry about PERMISSIONS, I WILL CONTACT YOU FIRST.
And don't worry, i will mention you in credit/thank list.
In army description (you are choose army and start skirmish, multiplayer and you are get loading screen with description about chosen army) i will add from which mod is this army (and if necessary info link to mod download), and players will know from which mod is this army taken, and if they interesting they will download and play YOUR MOD !
This mod is only planned for SKIRMISH and MULTIPLAYER, if you want to play CAMPAIGN or CHALLENGE with non-zero hour faction (factions from some other mods), download their original mod from which is that faction and play their mod.
In some mod, there are already exist faction with existing name, but is interesting and well balanced too, and have some new interesting units, what i should to do ? I will add that faction and just named it for example China Infantry General II, very simple. I will try to avoid to add existing factions.
For now me need a little help:
I don't know to modding Zero Hour, what i need to have and to do, if is possible links to tutorials and software please, i will read all which is necessary to build mod.
