I said it cant be any new units....sorry :laugh:

black market nuke is really lame and is in many many mods so I dont want to add to that number...also he already has the Nuke Truke for a super unit...so no need....

I have some, we will have a upgrade for him (level 1) that upgrades the terrorists bomb

Also something else but I dont know yet

Missed that sorry, maybe a Hack ability of some type. Gla can be hackers also. Not all are suicide bombers. Truly Black Market gen would have access to some high tech low impact stuff.

Similiar to an EMP without the flare, Just a visual of dancing ones, and zeros, that results in a structure shutting down. A computer virus hack.

Granted maybe a level 3 science. But in the heat of battle after his enemy attacked him you can shut down his warfactory and give the Gen the edge of rebuilding while the enemy sits and waits.

Just a thought...

How about a Salvage Upgrade witch makes all vehicles built with one salvage upgrade.
And a Molotov Upgrade witch gives the Rebels the ability to switch between the AK-47 and a Molotov Cacktail

how about an upgrade like "For the Cause" That makes all vehicles and infantry be able to manually set off a bomb on them so that if they are losing they can try and take out the bigger enemy with their lives.

Kinda like turning everyone into partially terrorist bombers.

But you would have to click on them and click a "detonate" button yourself.

Well, Black market Gen could have a form of "behind the scenes" financing that could yield a sort of UN supply drop. Maybe a couple of crates that parachute where you think it would make sense. Than the Gens forces could claim them.

(Edit) maybe a cursor to place where they should drop. Gives some flexiblity. Simple but fits...

I just tried your mod and I did notice a lack of powers for this general.
Keeping with the black market theme I got a couple of ideas:

-Hijacker ambush (same as rebel ambush but just for stealing)
-Sabotage (enemy vehicles shut down in a given area because locals stole or swaped and then sold the engine parts)
-Mercenaries (free units)
-Sell out (enemy vehicles join your cause after some per$ua$$ion)
-Happy supplier (arms dealer upgrades one type of vehicle, could be tecnical or battlemaster) or (cargo plane drops free tanks as a gift)

Hope some of this is useful.

My name's vincenzo, by the way. I've only folllowed the modding comunity for a couple of months now but this one seems very very interesting. Keep up the good work.

Give him a choice of training upgrades if you're really stuck
Another cheap alternative is to give him powers from other sides, but suitably GLA styled.

Hi, great mod!
A suggestion for the black market general:
Give him the hability to get better prices for some units. It should behave like the strat center of USA, like you have some buttons to choose wich units will getter better prices (and/or faster construction time). Or instead of better prices, the units choosen get lv 1 upgrade when built.

Here's an idea:

Why don't give him an upgrade to steal an army's general point (random, eg 2 A-10 , 30 secs spectre, EMP, nuke cannon..) It was supposed to be in Generals/ZH for China, as a purchable upgrade I think, but EA cut it off... But I have the voices that show that it was supposed to be there..

ps - good mod over there
