Fixed intermittent lack of energy for bots through:
- general optimisation of power consumption by bots, improvement of building queues and reduction of the total pack of units accumulated at the base to send the next "wave" to attack

- bots can sometimes start trying to take over your buildings (priority is fuel storage)
- bots stop defence spamming and start spamming power plants in its place
- bots are given priority to research available upgrades that positively affect fuel consumption or generation
- if all of the above fail: bots use scripted upgrades (only available for them to build with map scripts) that allow them to generate energy from all buildings

New version of full-installer was released!

We are glad to present you a new full installer for the new version 0.28!

Due to the fact that many people encounter problems installing the mod, so we decided to create a full-fledged installer for the game (pre-installed Generals ZH is not needed for complete installation). There is support for choosing the language of the installer (Caution! The installer does not change the language of the game itself!).


The parts of the game that will be added later can be obtained through launcher. The release of the updates will be posted here in the information window launcher in our Discord & VK group.

After installing the game, be sure to launch the launcher (by default, the shortcuts that will created in the installer lead to it), it will install the game language at the first start (depending on the system language, also you can change it to another by switching the toggle switch on the main page of launcher).


In case of any problems during installation or in the mod itself, you can always ask for prompt help in our

I have tried to save my game in skirmish mode, but when I load it up to resume my last session it immediately crashed to desktop!

I have the latest version (0.28) and downloaded it through GenLauncher (ver. 1.0.0.0.).

Did you save the game on an old version of the mod or on a map not from the official list?
If no, write more info in our Discord.com, we try to help.
