Seeing that I have started to be proficient in CnC modding, I am now thinking to create a ZH total conversion mod in the future. The mod's story will be taken from that of an MMORPG game that was once famous here in Indonesia, RF Online, albeit heavily changed so it would be resembling that of our real-life universe, but with a more advanced technology (so it won't include elemental/spiritual powers).

The mod will be named "Command & Conquer Generals: Rising Force". It takes place in Novus, a beautiful resource-rich planet similar to that of the Earth, but noticeably larger and has a shorter time cycle (a day there is about 20 hours, and a year there is about 300 days) populated by a human race that shares some of the genetic materials of Earth's humans, only noticeably superior and has a longer lifespan of over 100 years, divided into Accretia Empire, Bellato Union and Holy Alliance Cora, and will depict an intense battle between the three countries.

Current informations about the mod will be posted here. Note that the information is not final and subject to changes.

About Novus
QUOTE
Located within the edges of the Milky Way galaxy and orbiting the binary stars of Nigel and Lumen in their solar system’s habitable zone, Novus is a beautiful, resource-rich planet which similar to that of the Earth, but slightly larger (about 15,000 square kilometers in diameter), have three natural satellites/moons and has a shorter time cycle (a day there is about 20 hours and a year there is about 300 days).

Novus is teeming with a highly diverse ecosystem of lifeforms and are populated by many sapient races who have evolved over eons, possibly due to the fact that the planet’s suns are binary stars, but the most notable and numerous among them is a human race that shares some of the genetic materials of Earth’s humans, only noticeably superior and has a longer lifespan of over 100 years, divided into three nation-states: Accretia Empire, Bellato Union and Holy Alliance Cora.

The Accretians are secular and rational, while the Bellateans are liberal and moderate, and the Corites are traditionalist, spiritualist and conservative, but these prevents them from getting along throughout the planet’s history, leading to many conflicts and wars. Only in certain rare cases, such as the expedition of the planet’s arctic zone, now known as the Ether, where they are seen working together.


Accretia Empire
QUOTE
The largest country in Novus by the controlled territory, the Accretia Empire is a unitary elective monarchy that urged their people to put all their efforts for everyone’s benefit. Despite of their government being highly totalitarian and repressive, doing anything including violent means to ensure the Empire’s stability, the Accretians are known for their ‘development plans’ which results of having the second strongest economy in Novus, excellent health and education system as well as life expectancy and a highly balanced income distribution - thus the Accretians as a whole enjoyed a high standard of living and has a well-developed society.

Culturally, the Accretians held a secular and rational thinking and knowledge, which led them to search any possible rational information and explanation in almost every level, ignoring superstitious beliefs and even ethical and moral concerns, the latter if it is necessary to achieve their goals. For example, a doctor would search for any new healing methods by studying the disease itself to the very details, and even they would went far to experiment on humans and made artificial humans to do so. However, this made the Accretians very advanced in science, accomplishing many things that the Bellatians and the Corites otherwise haven’t and could only dream of.

Having the largest and most powerful, as well as highly disciplined, well-trained and well-equipped military in Novus, the Accretians have a militaristic desire to further expand the Empire throughout the planet. This led them to commit various police actions and interventions throughout the neutral Novusian territories, and prior to the beginning of the Novus War, annexes many territories into the Empire.

In the mod, the Accretia Empire will be much like the Russians in ROTR, using heavy firepower and a powerful and expensive army in combat. Their in-game superweapon will be the Thermonuclear Missile, which works like the vanilla ZH's Nuclear Missile but trades off radioactive fallout for increased damage and radius.

Bellato Union
QUOTE
The most populous country in Novus, the Bellato Union is a capitalistic union/alliance of several smaller Novus countries determined to work together to achieve common prosperity. They has the most advanced technology in Novus driven by their strong and intelligent nature as well as the strongest economy in Novus mainly driven through industry, commerce and trade activities. However, the Bellateans’ greed has driven them to exploit the planet’s natural resources to the extremes, often turning once lush and verdant forest into a barren desert through large-scaled deforestation, but the Bellateans has an effective and efficient resource management system which somewhat compensates for their reckless avarice.

The Bellateans enjoyed a moderate, highly peaceful and liberal society which contributes to their relatively stable political and social environments, and they are also free to express their opinions and publicly criticizes their government as freedom of expression is guaranteed in their constitution. This is partly due to their culture which encourages the Bellateans to be happy to change the peoples’ life for the better, as a happy person will contribute to the society’s progress, and freedom will allow a person to think straight.

Because the Bellateans are, at first, does not want to be at war with the other countries, they do not possess a unified military force. However, after being forced to participate in various armed conflicts and insurgencies within their frontiers and borders, they eventually converted many of their civilian and science equipment into military arsenals, and extensively used defensive tactics which allowed them to hold out through all of their enemies. Learning from that experience, the Union now has a unified, highly advanced military force that stands ready to deal with any threats to the Union’s continuity.

In the mod, the Bellato Union will be much like the combination of USA and ECA in ROTR, using a versatile, all-rounded, high-tech force in combat. Their in-game superweapon will be the Hammerstorm Artillery, which works like the Tremor AGAS in ROTR and the vanilla Generals' SCUD Storm.

Holy Alliance Cora
QUOTE
The smallest and the oldest country in Novus, the Holy Alliance Cora is a theocratic confederation of several countries that have existed since the ancient times, which shares the same monotheistic religious belief to a supreme god named Decem. Their people has the best physical appearance among the other Novus peoples; their men stands tall with handsome appearance, and so does their women.

The Corites held a zealous, firm belief to their god Decem, whom they believed to have created the worlds in beauty and created the Corites to carry out His wishes to make the worlds He created more beautiful, peaceful and lively, with the Corites’ purpose of life is to get closer with Him. They believed that those who carry out Decem’s wishes will receive His gifts to His children in form of both physical and mental strength. Decem also wishes the Corites to not put the world and their inhabitants into harm or damage, and must preserve and protect them instead, as hurting them would mean hurting Him as well. Thus, the Corites are only allowed to exploit natural resources under Decem’s will. They also believe that their body is a sacred place for Decem, and thus, they must treasure their body well. Because of these believes, the Corites had a longstanding reputation for being the most ecological and environment-friendly country in Novus, having the most advanced waste disposal and sewer management technology, and relying on wind farms and solar parks as a clean source of energy.

While having a rather weak military, the Corites makes up for it through their religious fanaticism and extensive use of guerilla and covert tactics as well as electronic warfare, which allowed them to defend their sacred lands from the aggressions of other races.

In the mod, the Holy Alliance Cora will be much like the combination of China and GLA in ROTR, relying on religious fervor, covert tactics, subterfuge and electronic warfare to support their army in combat. Their in-game superweapon will be the Sunlight Strike, which works like the Particle Cannon in the vanilla Generals but with the appearance of the Solaris strike in ROTR.

The Crag Mine War
QUOTE
Novus has been in a relatively stable state since the First Novus War. During that time, the three countries worked to recover from the outcomes of the war. Decades later, tensions is on the rise between the three countries following the discovery of a huge ore reserve in the Crag mountains located in Novus' central highlands. The three countries quickly move to claim the mine as their own, a move that resulted in a clash between the countries known as the "Crag Mine Dispute". However, many did not know that clash would foreshadow another great conflict that will happen between the three countries in the future, and by the time they realized it, the Second Novus War is on their doorstep...

This time, I'll give the details about the factions' hero units.

Lotan 3rd - Accretia Empire
QUOTE
Almost all available information about the legendary Accretian commando, Lotan “The Imperial Eagle”, is classified and is never released to the general public. Only several individuals who knew the truth about him.

Lotan usually gives a rather cold demeanor and emotionless look. This is possibly because of his rather cruel past; Lotan was previously a decorated soldier in the Imperial Army, seeing impressive combat skill during his service. However, he had a different view with his superiors regarding of the Accretians' diplomatic relationship with the Bellateans and the Corites, which seems was the reason of his participation in a powerful training program that has been the Imperial Army's tradition for over 40 years, with a 26% fatality rate and 98% recruits never reaching the end of the training, probably to make the possible outcome of having to experience such moments changed his personality and prevents him from spreading his views within the Army.

Sure enough, after barely surviving the almost sadistic program, Lotan's personality was greatly altered. He now became a cold, ruthless soldier who loses all respect to the others’ life and did not hesitate to carry out any orders no matter how questionable they are, adopting any means necessary to complete the task. However, despite of being repeatedly sent into dangerous, seemingly suicidal, missions in hopes that he will get killed in action, he always survives anything thrown at him. He once again become a popular and legendary figure within the Imperial Army known as the "Imperial Eagle".

Lotan uses the experimental “Black Blade” rail rifle that is similar to the “Black Arrow” rail rifle used by Imperial Punishers, but it fires a smaller cartridge in return of being able to be fired rapidly as it has a full-automatic firing mechanism. This allowed him to dispose any ground threats he encountered with relative ease. In addition, he can plant powerful explosive charges, both remote and timed, at his enemies. Furthermore, he is also an expert in camouflage, remaining hidden from the enemy until he fires or plants his exotic explosives.

In the mod, Lotan 3rd's role will be much like Colonel Burton in the base game, albeit much stronger and lacks the ability to stealthily kill infantry with a knife, in which he is armed with a rapid-firing rail rifle that can quickly take out infantry and light vehicles; heavier vehicles takes some time to be busted, however. He can also plant both remote and timed explosive charges on enemies, and is camouflaged unless when shooting or planting explosive charges.

B-Hammer - Bellato Union
QUOTE
Born in the city of Othus, where the famed Heroes' Square is located, B-Hammer was raised in a family who worked as merchants, selling salvaged materials from the Union's expeditions. Rather than helping out his parents in their business, he often spends his time listening to the tales about the Bellatean legendary heroes of the past and spending most of his time admiring their statues in the Square, and dreamed that he would, one day, become one of them. Thus, unlike the typical Bellatean children in his age, he was more interested in military stuff rather than enjoying his springtime of youth.

When he joined the Union Defense and Security Forces (the Union Armed Forces' predecessor) at the age of 18, he befriends Danan, a female soldier who is only a year older than him and is an impressive sharpshooter who can even accurately shot a target from over a kilometer away. She was so popular among the other soldiers in her age, partly due to her active, friendly and cheerful nature, despite of being a tomboyish girl who often pick up a fight with boys. She is first interested with B-Hammer after listening to his tale to become a hero of the Union, and eventually made a promise with him that they will live and fight together and become heroes of the Union.

Two years later, during the Second Bellato-Cora War, B-Hammer and Danan fought together in the battlefield as a sniper team, with B-Hammer as the spotter. They managed to score numerous kills during many battles, some said that the kill count exceeds a thousand. However, during a battle in the Sette desert, Danan was fatally wounded by a Corite sniper, whom B-Hammer managed to neutralize by using Danan's rifle. As B tries to tend to Danan's wounds, she cries as she realized that her life is fading, much to B's shock. Danan, with her last breath, cheered B up by saying that he should live and fight to become a hero now. This allowed him to stay strong after seeing his friend died in front of him. After laying down Danan's body and closed her eyes, B picked up her sniper rifle and fought the incoming Corite troops as best as he can, this feat earning him recognition from his fellow soldiers as he managed to kill hundreds of Corite troops crossing into his sights.

After the war ends, B-Hammer extensively trained himself in camouflage, allowing him to hide himself when not taking the shot, and marksmanship to the point that he can shoot fast-moving ratmoths from a distance with ease and, with enough concentration, he could even shoot at fast-moving jet aircrafts and helicopters. He utilizes a bolt action M-194 "Bright Lance" sniper rifle capable of firing Hyper-Velocity Armor Piercing (HVAP) ammunition and uses a sonar imaging scope which allows him to spot vehicle crews and takes them out, leaving it open for capture or, against aerial vehicles, simply caused them to crash. Now he stands ready to fight for the sake of his best friend and partner Danan and carrying out her will to become a hero of the Union, imbuing her spirit in each of his shots.

In the mod, B-Hammer's role is much like Jarmen Kell in the base game, in which he snipes enemy infantry to instantly kill them from a distance and can also kill vehicle crews, albeit the ability can now be used on air units too, which will instantly destroy them, but in return he needs several seconds to do so, leaving him vulnerable. He is camouflaged unless when shooting.

Ziz Qadasha - Holy Alliance Cora
QUOTE
Ziz Qadasha was the daughter of Dain Qadasha, an expert in IT systems known as one of the best in the entire Alliance who taught her in computer systems during her childhood. Dain was known for attaining an Information Systems degree at the age of 15, when others in her age is still studying in later grades of middle school. Sometime after her graduation, Dain meets Mana, a young Corite socialite, and they discussed about the Corite religion with Mana explaining that studying about Decem is necessary in order to think rationally about the world as the Accretians and Bellateans did, which slowly filled Dain’s heart in doubts about her faith to Decem.

When Dain gave birth to Ziz, after being influenced by Mana’s thoughts, she made a decision to not taught her daughter anything about the Corite religion, and instead teach Ziz her specialty – computer systems and IT fields. However, words about Dain’s actions quickly reached the Conclave, who deemed that one who did not want to walk in Decem’s path shall be exiled. As the result, Ziz was exiled to the Bisk region when she was 17 years old – at this time she was vocal of her mother’s beliefs, leading to many branding her as a heretic.

The Bisk region was populated by a non-Corite people that was tolerant to the Corites, despite of the latter’s view towards the Bisk peoples as cheap labors. Ziz quickly adapt to the new environment, making friends with the Bisk people and treating them as her own family. Here, she further improves her computer and IT skills, and later, the Bisk people introduced her to hacking, whom she deeply embraced. In the end, Ziz became a hacker prodigy that is famous throughout Novus for her actions of hacking into corrupt peoples’ computers and brings their crimes to light.

As an act of revenge for her exile, Ziz hacked into the Corite politicians and the Conclave members’ computers, uncovering their malicious and evil acts, notably the former’s corruptions, collusions and nepotisms, and sexual abuses done by the latter, and exposes them to the Corite public, resulting in the leaders punished for their unforgivable crimes. The newly reformed Conclave then revokes Ziz’s exile and the Corite government, under the recommendation of her mother Dain, recruited her to aid in the Alliance’s cyber defense and security.

Using her hacking skills, Ziz can crack nearly any buildings’ secured computer systems with ease, allowing her to disable and capture buildings. Furthermore, she can hack enemy vehicles to flood their on-board computers with a sheer overflow of useless, cluttered data, much like a DDOS attack, leaving them a sitting duck. She is also an expert in blending herself into her surrounding environments, remaining unnoticed by the enemy until she does any of her hacking feats.

In the mod, Ziz Qadasha's role will be much like Black Lotus in the base game, albeit possessing an upgraded version of the Hacker's disable building ability that no longer needs to be maintained instead of the ability to steal enemy money.

Yes, but I'm still creating concepts for the mod; only once the concept is finished that the mod's creation will begin. Anyone are welcome to help me, or even join me, to create the mod.

I've decided to move the mod from Generals to Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge, utilizing Ares to do so. Because of this, I have to completely redesign the concept from scratch, but I might use this one for making the mod's Zero Hour iteration at some point later.

If anyone were interested to help me in developing the mod (especially if they have a lot of knowledge about the RF Online universe), please let me know.
