Hello there all. Im a modeler/texturer and im interested in making a mod for generals which would allow the user to switch to the 1st peson view of any of thier units, simply by pushing a button. I am sure this is possible since the game is already 3d, all that would mainly need to be adjusted is the position of the camera. Ideally i would love to be able to control that unit also (with 'wasd'). I can cover all the modeling aspects (create new guns/ inside vehcials for each unit). Are there any programmers that can help me with the camera adjusting part, or mabey even the unit control aspect? Any help would be much apreciated. You can contact me here if u need to. thnx [email="agent_orange444@hotmail.com"]agent_orange444@hotmail.com[/email]

I do hope your joking. This either impossible or amazingly hard to do with the generals engine, Trust me, the you'd need to re-code half of the engine.

Holy Crap.... that would be something what i always dreamed of :))) A RTS Game with 1st Person Capabilities :)))) But sadly.... jonathanslash will be right, i don't believe it either that this would be possible with Gen or ZH... but Rumors are going through the Net that the next C&C Game will have this Feature to control single units in 1st Person, but nothing really confirmed...

well, maybe if you mean swithching to the 1st person persepective of a sepcific unit. But there could be a way to,say, exchange the rotate camera option for an adjust view angle option. maybe I'll try it.

The sky will be black, and the camera moves very slow.

If that's your thing, I'd suggest looking up a game called "Savage"

never heard of that, what is this? :)) And if it's nothing like C&C with War and so on, i won't like it :D

EDIT: ah, that's like Spellforce, in a few Ways at least :D

Savage is a RTS/FPS that lets you build a town and defend/attack it in the first person. Its not to say a "modern game" its more or less ancient times and you fight monsters.

Here's a link: http://www.s2games.com/

Or how about a game called Machines. It is as well a very ancient game but had therefore three steps of views 1st, 3rd person and normal 3d.

machines.jpgmachines.jpgmachines1.jpgheal00.jpgion01.jpgplasma03.jpgmiss5_02.jpg

As everyone can see it is a FULL 3d game even if it is very old but still it incoroporates more then the graphic engines of state of the art games of our time which is really very sad because of our bleeding edge pc tech that we do not use to our full capacity up today ;).

I'd liked to see Generals or ZH or an upcoming title of CNC which graphics engine (not like the "SAGE engine" which is already very good and realistic) has these build in features because just imagine going out on foot with your Red Guard and suddenly after a small hill you see raise your head just about the hilltops just to see with your eyes behind the hill a Tank Army rolling forwards your base with heavy artillery support. But still it should be a 3d RTS like "Machines" (just with way better graphics and c' mon guys if EA is working with Machines [PC's hehe] like the ones of ALIENWARE which everyone maybe knows they should manage to program such a graphicals engine) ;)
