This mod has been in development for about 5 years now. Some major features are: Corpses of the fallen will now permanently stay, population caps have been increased, and new units. Each faction receives one hero unit, you can play with and against any faction, and there are Heroes, crazy stuff (like The Maus, Powell, zombies,...) can be activated or deactivated in the reward menu. It also contains an Infantry Only mode, Early war mode, No Pop-Cap mode, and Quick Start mode in the victory conditions. This mod is only for fun! If you are looking for complete realism, try another one.
This mod is compatible with Company of Heroes, Opposing Front and Tales of Valor patched to 2.601. After one year of bug fixing, here is a stable version of the NHCmod. A lot of new features are now available. Powell can now be played like a FPS game with the "direct fire ability", snipers can hide in hay stack and big tree (Thanks to Lethal Dosage add-on). Some news units are also available: Voss Tiger Ace 205 and LefH 10.5 cm. This version also contains a "combiner mod" that allows you to play Eastern Front and have German voice for german soldiers if you have the Eastern Front mod and the needed sound files.
