2.then run the game from the shortcut. (enhanced combat leader).
i've made the download availible, to try out the beta you can download it from the relicnews forum i included the link below:
I have increased maximum Line of sight ranges for units based on the categories of class for example all tanks have smaller sight ranges to detect objects on the battlefield and almost no chance to detect hidden squads or snipers, while infantry have the best chances to spot objects at the longest ranges and have very good chances at spotting hidden units or snipers. Maximum range visible to detect objects for tanks is 35m when the tank is "buttoned up" and 45m when "unbuttoned" because crews in vehicles with semi-exposed fighting compartments have better sight ranges than crews in enclosed fighting compartments. However infantry troops can see very far the maximum range visible to detect objects 65m.
Suppression is far more prevalent weapons dealing variable rates of suppression, so the rate-of-fire is key. That is why all machineguns and some types of infantry squads have suppressive fire ability which increases the rate of fire, lowers weapon accuracy, and increases the rate of fire, and suppression a weapon causes temporarily. Certain types of Infantry Combat Criticals for machineguns and artillery can cause units morale to break in combat this will cause units to flee to the nearest rally points. Rally Points and Medical Aid Stations can be built in territories to rally all broken squads in an area. Medical Aid Stations can now also reinforce wounded/KIA units a squad incurs during combat.
Infantry Combat Critical. The most common Infantry Combat Critical is the casualty; weapons also have a variable chance to kill an enemy unit outright. Casualties last for a long time to give medics a chance to save them. Other types of Infantry Combat Critical for cannons and artillery can cause a unit to be stunned in combat which causes units a decrease in rate-of-fire and weapon accuracy penalties.
Cover in Infantry combat. Cover reduces the accuracy, damage, and suppression a unit receives. The heavier the cover the better the protection from the effects of received damage, suppression, and being pinned, so flanking fire will be essential to victory.
Tanks and Tank Critical
Tank damage is based on realistic penetration values cannons and artillery can cause a unit to be stunned in combat which causes units a decrease in rate-of-fire and weapon accuracy penalties. Cannons and artillery can cause a destroyed engine and immobilized will also make the tank actually be stuck. Cannons and artillery can cause a unit to have the commander killed and the vehicle losses all external mounted machineguns and suffers reduced rate of fire penalty on all weapons. Cannons and artillery can cause a unit to kill the gunner and destroy the main weapon (unit cannot fire main armament). Cannons and artillery can cause a unit to have the driver killed or the vehicle goes out of control and explodes.
All small arms, light machineguns, and anti-tank rocket launchers engagement, sight, and maximum range increased to 50m
All ATG, artillery, heavy machineguns engagement, sight, and maximum range increased to 150m
