This mod is designed to give just a little more variety to Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour, specifically with multiplayer in mind. The Base factions and generals are only slightly modified, and several new factions will be released.

My aim is to make this mod feel like it is just another expansion or "DLC" if you will for the main game.

Factions include:

  • Arab League
  • Ba'athist Iraq
  • Post invasion Iraq
  • Israel
  • North Korea
  • Russia
  • Ukraine

Next faction:

  • TBD

Possible future factions include:

  • Blue dragons (Japan/South Korea/Taiwan Coalition)
  • India
  • Eurocorps (NATO in Europe)

Because of the limit on how many AI's the game can have unfortunately not all the new factions will have one. However this mod is mostly built for multiplayer.

There is a lot still in works so stay tuned for updates! If you're interested you can join the discord for this mod here: Discord.gg

It is finally time to release the next faction! Russia. While playing this faction you are able to choose between 3 main battle tanks at the start of the round. No matter which tank you choose, you will later have access to the T-80U and T-90.

While building lots of tanks is fun, things really start picking up when you build the advanced missile and rocket factory. This building allows you to build 4 types of special units. The first is the Buratino, which melts infantry and structures. The second is the Smerch, which fires anti tank rockets that drop cluster bombs for splash damage. The third is a nuclear missile launcher that replaces the traditional zero hour superweapon. Finally we have the S-300 missiles that are incredibly long range and target air units.

For secondary resources I wanted Russia to play similar to China. So, instead of a hacker we have a logistics truck. Once deployed it will generate cash. With the logistics center you can boost the trucks by loading them up in the garage.

As usual please no politics in the comment section. Thank you to all the support and encouragement! There are dozens of other modders that have helped me get to this point, so I owe a lot of my work to them.

Now, as I'm sure you've noticed none of the new factions have an AI. My next update will fix that for at least one faction. From there, I'll keep adding them until most if not all the new factions have one. In order to do this I will need to replace the AI used for the sub factions in the base game. Zero hour has a limit on the total number of AI's used.

There are a few bugs I've found in the current version. The Post-invasion Iraq tech tree doesn't work and I can't even build most of the units. Another bug is the Arab League's Generals Point menu, though I'm not sure if you actually intended it. Many of the unlocks require another GP before it can even be selected, which kind of hinders the faction's attempt at easy customization. Also, I forgot which faction (maybe Russia), but it has a lot of overlapping hotkeys. For example, you can't select the Air Field because it defaults to the fortification.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention! I changed very little about Post Invasion Iraq, and therefore wasn't testing it as often. I will release and update with this fixed! Also, good point about the Arab League. I will look into changing this if I see the need.

Potentially doing "Blue Dragons" which would be Japan and South Korea. I've also considered adding India to make it a trio. However, before I add any faction I want to make sure it has a unique play style.
