* AI tweaked to take better advantage of larger unit caps * weapon hardpoints rescaled * unit melee_sizes rescaled * building explosion damage ranges rescaled
Half-scale Mod v0.8 This mod scales down all the units, buildings, speeds, and weapon/ability ranges by half (even for the Imperial Guard). Ever wanted to play really large battles, with massive armies on huge maps? Well, since none of the present maps are that big, I made this mod. Some things were deliberately not rescaled, and several other changes were made to reflect the large scale combat, like unit caps. The AI has also been tweaked to let it take full advantage of these increases. NEW INSTALL PROCEDURE Expand into the Dawn of War/ directory (not Dawn of War/W40K/). Run Dawn of War/Half Scale Mod.bat to run DoW with this mod, otherwise just run DoW normally. No need to rename/delete folders to play normally. This new procedure only works for patch 1.1 users; if you haven't patched, just stick the extracted Data directory from half_scale/ into the W40K/ directory.

This hasn't really been tested, though. Other changes: Space Marines and Chaos * squad and support cap max increased to 40 each * Squad Cap upgrade increases cap by 15, cost 225 instead of 150, takes 45 sec instead of 30 * Support Cap upgrade increases cap by 10 Eldar * squad and support cap max increased to 40 each * Webways increase squad/support cap by 6/4 Orks * support cap max increased to 40 * max pop now 200 * Waagh banner adds squad/support cap by 20/4 * AI tweaked to take advantage of larger unit caps Things I couldn't rescale: * Green selection boxes/circles when you click on or pass over buildings/units * Green image of the building inside the build placement box. Other issues: * despite changing the troop entity blueprint size, I can't find a good way to fix squad members continually bumping into each other without simply increasing the formation spacing a little above half-size (2/3) zurn
