BrewLAN is a unitpack and balance mod for Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance with a variety of changes and additions at all tech levels for all factions, including Seraphim. The design goals for the mod are simple; to add new, interesting and visually aesthetic units which complement those already in existence and to maximize technical compatibility with other mods, even if said mods may be incompatible in concept.

The name BrewLAN is taken from Joshua Wilsons infamous LAN party of the same name, where the mod in its earliest incarnation saw its first multiplayer usage. The LAN itself taking its name from the fact that lots of tea was served there.

There are two different ways to download and play BrewLAN, either via the public betas or via the SVN oriented alphas, which contain the very latest, but possibly unfinished or experimental, changes and additions. For more information see the Google code page, if you have any issues, bugs or anything else that requires our attention please report them on the issues page.

Multilingual support

BrewLAN, as of version 0.4.3, has full language support for English and French, with previously full language support for German (now out of date). German localisation by 106.Bluebird, French localisation by Explo.

If you would like to see BrewLAN translated into your language you can help! All it takes is translating this one document and uploading it somewhere for me to access. Benefits include your name on the credits and of course this mod being available in your language.

Hey Balthassar now that you are back maybe you could fix the model for the Aeon T3 Tank the Moldavite (BAL0311)the model is great but unfinished, and the turret is not connected to the body.

Nice to have you back btw.

I was gonna put a glow effect under the turret so it looked like it had a reason to hover, but I couldn't get it to work immediately so I gave up on it thinking no one would care. Would you buy that its held there by magnets?

I have serious problems getting this to work, I followed the instruction and 3.0b and global icon support 5.0 shows up in the mod manager but when I check brewLAN it says that I need GIS and don't have it installed. What could be wrong? I can check GIS and it works(as far as I can tell.) I've tried with 2.9 also, and I've tried with GIS 2.0, and it hasn't work. The brewLAN folder structure looks good to me(judging by the GIS instructions.)

thank you in advance

If you're still having problems, go into the mod file, open mod_info.lua and delete the requires and requiresnames lines and save. That will let you use any version of the icon support mod.

It doesn't matter at all which version of the support mod is used, I was tempted to release it without the direct requirement, but I wanted to avoid the inevitable "no icons" comments.

If you're playing with other people you may want to get them to delete the lines as well, but that shouldn't really matter.
