Just to clarify, are these changes that all or most have been already implemented into 1.2 or changes that are still to be done; more like a to do list. I just wasn't sure as all. BTW, great changes, 100% agree with them and can't wait to see how it alters gameplay :)

All these changes are implemented into 1.2 if you see a WIP next to one of the changes those are still being tweaked.

are the damage deficits the same as the health, so will 1% health lead to 99% reductions or is it scaled differently?
and will the new experimental be compatible with the balance mod right off the bat?

The damage defects work in 25% blocks so 25,50,75,100, There will be no balance mod for 1.2 the mod will have its own balance.

Small question, what is mass scaling?

I am just a tad bit curious to what that does.

RVE 1.2 has a scaling system that allows for mass scaling unlike 1.05 and other scaling mods were there done by each unit, Revamp can also scale new content.

scale as in what? is it something to do with the code or is it something simple like balancing new content? call me an idiot but i have no idea what scaling is when you say it in that. i think of scales as in weight or scaling a wall(moving sideways along the flat surface of a wall).

what do you mean by overhaul in research tree?

Awesome work guys, I've purchased SupCom2 just to play this mod with my friend. In my opinion, SupCom2 wasn't a game worth to be called original SupCom's heir, but you somehow managed to fix up even seemingly permanent flaws like warfare scale and improper economy model. Can't wait for 1.2 release.

Was just wondering, don't mean to sound impatient. But i was wondering if you guys knew when your going to release a V.12. This mods got my mouth watering and i can't wait for the next release. Don't care if its next year or in 10 years time. The wait'll be worth it.
