READ THE MANUAL AND README.TXT BEFORE PLAYING

A NOTE FOR BEGINNERS:
The AI is challenging, depending also on the map. The easiest map so far is Country Roads. If you are a beginner set the easy game difficulty in the option menu, otherwise you might find the game frustrating. You can increase the difficulty setting later, when you have learned the game mechanisms.

INSTALLATION:
Unzip the file in the Mods folder of Men of War. If it does not exist, create it and then unzip the mod there. Start Men of War, go to Option, then go to the MOD tab. There look for the mod in the left list, select it and use the arrow to move to the right list. Press Apply.

KNOWN ISSUES:

The reinforcements menu might cross the display boundaries sometimes, especially when you are using a 16:10 monitor. There is not much I can do because the reinforcement menu is hardcoded, so I can't change it. I've tried to add more reinforcement categories, so It shouldn't be a great problem now. I'm sorry but apparently making a slider for menus and windows was too hard for DMS 

MOD GOALS:
Men of War is probably the best ww2 strategy game on the market, but it lacks most of all one thing: a skirmish mode where you can have huge battles against an AI player. It is a shame that you have so many units available that you can rarely use in the campaigns.
Battlefield mode is a unique skirmish mode, more advanced than those you can find in Assault Squad, whose objectives are the following:
•    Create a challenging single player skirmish with a great variety of battles.
•    Build a sandbox to allow inexperienced players to set up their own scenario quickly given a prebuilt map.

BATTLEFIELD MODE IN DETAILS:
Battlefield mode is a skirmish mode based on map point controls. Unlike multiplayer games, control points provide resources to buy reinforcements. Each control point grants you command points, used to buy reinforcements, and tech points. Tech points are needed in order to unlock more advanced units. Every minute you receive a new amount of command and tech points based on the control points you own.
Besides each nation can use a set of Support Commands which unlock Support Operations. Support Operations are special abilities like airstrikes or special unit reinforcements which can be unlocked by support points. Some control points provide you with these support points.

CURRENT PROGRESS:
The mod now includes several Battlefield scenarios and 5 playable factions (Germany, USA, Commonwealth, Japanese Empire and Soviet Union). Besides I have completely reworked gun stats to make them more realistic (based on penetration tables from www.tarrif.net) and added new units (some taken from other mods, see the credits in readme.txt).

FUTURE GOALS:
•    Include Soviet Union and Axis allied nations as playable factions in the Battlefield mode.
•    Convert the mod for Assault Squad.
•    Make some tutorial missions for the Battlefield mode.
•    Write a tutorial explaining how to set up your custom battlefield scenarios.
•    Create a campaign for each of the nations.

During a test I decided to record a video showing the new AI in action. The map is "Contry Roads", I am playing with Germany using the Infantry Support Command, while the Russian AI is using the Urban Warfare Support Command with the "Hard" difficulty setting. The video does not contain the whole game because it was too long, but it should give you an idea of how the new AI behaves.

I couldn't upload it directly into the video section here on moddb because the video is too large, and youtube URL does not seem to work in the upload section. You can find the video below. Meanwhile I'll keep trying to upload it from youtube URL.

this mod is great but there seems to be an issue when facing soviets, they seem to be able to send t-34`s and 2t-26`s while the best i got is a pak 40 and a luchs despite the fact i control more than half the map and when they use the soviet war machine i am faced with a serious problem where they spam is-2s and alot more tanks while i only have 2 panthers holding the line (also despite the fact i held more than half the map)

I know, if you read the news you'll see I'm reworking the AI to balance this problem, it will use resources like human players do, now it purchases units based on simple heuristics so situations like this may be possible. In the next version (4.5) the AI will be fully reworked. I've already written Wehrmacht and USA AI scripts and they behave pretty well compared to the old version. Besides you will have more difficulty levels, beginner, easy, normal, hard and insane so the game will become more scalable and more friendly for new players.

Those are base defenses, you can't control them directly. They just attack the enemy when it's close enough.

Does anyone know if you are able to play this game with just player vs pc. Not the campaign but make your own battles I guess is what I'm asking. Or is that what the world builder is intended for

It is a skirmish mode intended to be played vs a computer opponent. Just select the Battlefield mode in the campaign menu.

No I can't, it's forbidden by the developers to port Assault Squad units to earlier installments, you can do the opposite, that is you can port Men of War and Red Tides units to Assault Squad, but the other option is considered piracy.

Unique and much needed, in my opinion, mod, that provides the opportunity for a good old random "multiplayer-style" (unscripted, unlike any scenario, that come in a sackful) comp-stomp on a great variety of maps, which was long missing for so many Men of War players.
