File Description

RC Realism is a mod that seeks to correct some of the limitations that myself and Hotaru7 felt the game had. A plethora of new changes were implemented, particularly dealing with infantry of all factions. Check the changelogs for all the details!

Personal favorites include: VT (airburst round) for the Allied artillery. Glider airborne units (Infantry, Jeep, 57mm, Bren Carrier). Unit weapon customization. Cheap infantry (seriously, why use them when you could pay a little bit more for a tank in vanilla COH). Bigger squad sizes.

Expected changes next patch: Armor tweaking - so it really does take 2 to 3 Shermans to take a MkIV. Ambient building overhaul - Enlarge the capacity of buildings so that bigger squads can fit. (Ever wonder why you could only fit 12 men in a 2 story, 8 room house?) Possible ambient building repair (if I can figure it out). Possible Axis/PE buff if people feel that they got nerfed too hard.

RC_Realism Mod

Created by: Ryan (Rygoat)
Ideas by: Ryan and Cullen (Hotaru7)

This mod was created due to the fustrations and limitations that we felt the game had.
I apologize if there are any parallels with any other mods out there.  I have no intention whatsoever of copying anyone's ideas.  Credit is given appropriately in the changelogs whenever I knowingly used others materials.

Should you feel that I have copied some of your ideas, please email me at rf2006@hotmail.com and give a detailed explanation of the situation.  I will do my best to rectify it.

In the case that you would like to use my ideas, feel free to do so.  All I ask is to give credit where credit is due.

Special thanks to ab2351 for several ideas:
Slit trenches to other races.
Ability use while in buildings.
Increased squad sizes.


NOTE:  Relic and THQ do not provide any technical support for this mod.
