File Description

This mod was written to try and remove the basebuilding aspect of the game. After 90% of playtime was found to be "enemy base demolitions", it was decided that the game would be paced up significantly if one could just order a complete army within the resource limits.

To accomplish this, the research- and building-requirements were disabled. The results of research are mostly hardcoded now, please contact the developer if features are found to be lacking.

Campaign - Is playable, though building/research restrictions are removed here too. Skirmish - The computer players in skirmish games don't seem to be bothered too much by these changes. Multiplayer - Works fine if all players use the same mod. Players without the mod, get dropped. Balance has not been tested.
