1. What is it?
The "4th Dimension" is a modification for Supreme Commander. The goal of this mod is to make SC feel more realistic (as long as it is better for the gameplay) and to improve the balancing of the game. The Czar for example is the biggest unit in the game, but it can take only very few damage. Another point is the ship behavior. They have a much too high acceleration which is much lower in the "4th Dimension" mod. I also wanted to make more units usefull than in the original game. When you reached tech 3, a lot of tech 2 and 1 stuff becomes obsolete in SC. In the "4th Dimension" the tech 3 siege bots are much slower than tech 1 and 2 tanks. Nearly all units have a weapon inaccuracy now, so that they dont hit the same pixel over and over again. Some new units do area damage when they die and a lot more you have to find out!
nearly all unit weapons have an inaccuracy (except special weapons like guided missiles, beamlasers... )
veteran system is much more linear (for example a Rhino lvl 2 tank needs 6, 12, 23, 34, 54 kills instead of 15, 30, 75, 150, 300) and units can reach max level in praxis which was impossible before.
explosion damage added to a lot of units (damage decreases from explosion center)
walls are more usefull but also more expensive (they can block more fire now)
changes to explosions optic like multiple generated (randomly) explosions
improvements to general balancing: check changelog for details
gameplay changes to make units/races more different (for example big units are slower, cybrans have regeneration)
