Switches the factions around so that all three races can be played. The balance changes included in the mod address numerous long standing complaints about the original game while the faction swap provides a fresh experience to the gameplay. The mod has been built from scratch with full compatibility on all maps and missions in mind: Any map that worked with the original game will work with this mod. The campaign can also be played either as it was in the original (except with the new balance changes), or using the previously inaccessible Terran units instead.

After two long months of development and a Fun* foray into the world of programming to make a launcher, Version 3 is done. So long as no major issues show up this should be curtains for the mod. I have to say that the balance, polish and ease of use make the previous versions look amateur and incomplete. Even if you've played the mod before, dust off your old copy of Ground Control 2 and give this a whirl, you won't be disappointed.

*Not so fun.

Get the mod from the downloads page here. If you're interested in reading about what changed between the last version and this one, check out the change list. Also try out the custom skirmish map pack if you haven't already.

A very comprehensive readme file is included in the download. It has a large FAQ and commentary section in it that some of you may find informative, otherwise check it out for installation instructions (if you missed the ones on the downloads page) or any troubleshooting issues.

As always, if you have any questions or comments please post them here.

Enjoy!

I finally got rid of that horrible launcher I made and went back to putting the mod in a .zip file. The new download should be up soon and I'd be happy if everyone deleted the launcher and forgot it ever existed, but truthfully if you already have the mod working you don't need to download it again.

Also, thanks again to everyone who has played, commented and even voted! You guys make all the effort worthwhile.

I was afraid that would happen for some people. Honestly the easiest thing you can do is open up Explorer, go to your game directory and use the batch (.bat) files instead. There are three batch files, one for each faction combination. Pick which mode you want to play in and then double click on the .bat file for it. Example if you want to play NSA vs Terran, use the "GC2 Reviron 3 - NSA v Terran.bat" file. The GC2 Reversal 3 batch file is the one that includes the Terran campaign.

I recommend making shortcuts to these in your GC2 start menu folder for convenience; Just drag & drop the .bat files from explorer into the menu.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hopefully the launcher is working for most people though. The .bat files were included as a backup and its the same method used to start the game as in previous versions of the mod.

Short of including the entire system32 folder along with the mod (and there's no way I could/would do that), there's no good way for me to make the launcher completely failure proof.

yo I've been wondering if there is any documentation about modding GC2. There's the SKD and so on but is tehre also some sort of community or unofficial help/info? For example C&C modding has various forums with people actively modding, wondering if something like that exists for GC2 as well.

Mod sounds great, haven't tried it out yet but sure will and rate. Sadly that other terran mod was very terran OP, the more I wanna try this mod out ;-)

There is some documentation included with the SDK that should get you started on the basics. I found that pretty much all of the .juice data (unit stats and the like) is intuitive to mod and easy to work with. I didn't get model editing to work right but that is admittedly outside of my expertise and I didn't spend much time trying either. Your mileage may vary.

There isn't an active modding community as far as I know. The Massgate forums had a board (now archived) for modding GC2 but I've never looked in there myself and couldn't tell you how useful it would be. There are references in some custom maps* to websites for GC2 gaming clans, not sure if any of those are still around but they might have had some additional info as well.

As for this mod, its not perfectly balanced but I like to think it does a good job of it. The maintenance overhaul in version 2 made the stronger units appropriately expensive but it could still use some tweaking. I don't have any plans for a version 3 right now but I could well end up making it next time I go back and play GC2 again.

I dare say you would at least enjoy playing the campaign with Terran units when you try it. :)

*One of these days I should upload the custom skirmish/multiplayer map pack that I put together.
