The Command & Conquer Generals World Builder is a scenario editor for Command & Conquer Generals and the Zero Hour expansion pack that allows you to create your own maps and missions. These pages provide some basic information about the World Builder program. Please note that this section assumes that you are using the version of World Builder released with the Zero Hour expansion pack to Generals.
If you're just looking to learn the basics, then check out our Basic World Builder Tutorial. If you want a detailed guide, EA's Official World Builder Manual for C&C Generals is by and large still relevant for Zero Hour.
