File Description

This is the fixed version. This will now work with latest patched version of EAW and should work with the unpatched game aswell. This mod will add several new units including New Air units for Land combat for both Factions, and other features into the campaign and Galactic Conquest mode only.

New Changes in Version NOTE: i had to remake the whole mode to make it playable for the latest game patch. copying the content of the old XML's somehow didnt work, so there may be some major diffrences between the new mod version 0.3 and the older version 0.2 and also new bugs that didnt appear in the older version.. some units had to be removed from the mod as they caused crashes in the patched game, and after several days working on them i just couldnt fix them.

Description:
Fixed version. will now work with latest patched version of EAW and should work with the unpatched game aswell.
This mod will add several new units including New Air units for Land combat for both Factions! 
and other features into the campaign and Galactic Conquest mode only.
somehow some of the new units caused the game to crash in skirmish mode, 
so the new units still doesnt work for skirmish.
the mod also focus much on realism but not that 100% real life realism. 
i didnt want some of the infantry to die far to easily as i wanted to keep the Star wars feeling.
which i dont feel is when a whole infantry company dies in a single laser blast. So the infantry takes about 1-5 hits depending on
infantry type and what damage rate the attacking units have.
Heroes are still as powerfull as they were in the original game, 
and i will keep them that way for now. 
indingenous units are very much like cannonfodder as they are weakly armored and equiped.
All Infantry including all heroes has been scaled down aswell.
Unit cap has been raised with 50 for space and 30 for landcombat.
unit cap for campaign and Galactic conquest varies from planet to planet
Expect more versions in the future that will eliminate bugs and add new units.

Installation:

Put/copy the XML folder into gamedata/data in your EAW program folder. should be program/eaw/gamedata/data
Be SURE to not mix my mod with another one if you already have an XML folder. it could make the game buggy.
Then copy the masterTextFile_english.dat to your gamedata/data/text folder. 
*WARNING* please make sure to make a backup of the original MasterTextfile_english.dat before you overide it.

Unistallation:

Simply remove the XML folder and overide the new mastertextfile_english.dat with the original backup .dat file

for any questions, suggestions or if you found any bugs please contact me, at ( sf_recruit@hotmail.com )
PLEASE label the mail with EAW-Addon: (subject), i will probably just ignore any other mails.
If you downloaded this from EAW.filefront.com please be sure to check for any comments. i will now just ignore
all mails containing information about the version 0.2 bug. as i have already explained it in the comments more then twice.


Credits given to Tiger's Realism Mod 0.30 which many units scaling and some realism attributes from this mod is based on 
Credits also to Viperman who made the TIE-Advance mod.
