This mod was made because the AI in CnC Generals: Zero Hour is too easy. It uses predictable tactics, builds mediocre bases, and normally saves excessive amounts of money. Beating 7 computer AIs on Hard shouldn't be possible - but it is. This mod changes that.

Tips from the Author:
This mod will only work on skirmish and online games where all players have the same version of the mod.

In order to play the mod, you must choose to play against Medium or Hard level computers. The Easy level skirmish settings remain unchanged.

The following Generals have been improved by this mod:
  • Air Force
  • Super Weapon
  • Demolition
  • Nuclear
  • Infantry
  • Tank
  • Laser
  • Stealth
  • Toxin
It is recommended that you play the Air Force General first and then work your way down the list for the best gameplay experience.

Play only on maps that have been made with computer AI players in mind. Play on Tournament maps for the best results. Official maps may be played on with the second best results, followed by custom fan-created maps that have AI enabled.

Installation Instructions:

  • Download the installer and extract the files.
