Post feature RSS Supreme Commander 2 0 1 3 Mod Cumulative Changelog

This document categorizes and lists the differences between the default game and the modified game. It does give a run-down in plain english of all the changes that really matter, but it does not include every variable tweaked as that would just be an insanely big list.

Supreme Commander 2 0 1 3 Version 1.11 available for download here or here.

Document update for v1.11 on March 22, 2013

Some of the most important changes will be Italicized .

Removed starting engineers, added teleport effect similar to SupCom1.
Changed Unit Cap options to 1000, 2000 (default), 3500, 5000. (Change in 'game.prefs'. Found in C:\Documents and Settings\&#xUS;ERNAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander 2 where &#xUS;ERNAME% is the login you use for windows [or somewhere similar to this I am not familiar with all operating systems]. Search for UnitCap and change to one of the above 4 values).
Added Custom SupCom2 0 1 3 Loading tips.
Added custom Main Menu 'Version' tag.
Added over 25 new hotkeys!
Added Secondary/Tertiary/Minimum range rings to a lot of units.


Most Visual and weapon ranges raised all around.
All cannon and laser based projectile speeds raised.
All Anti-Air will now target at long range as long as radar/line of sight is achieved, however all anti-air that is not a rocket based can only fire above a certain degree relative to their horizon, meaning gunships and transports can fly under their fire until close range.
Various tweaks to projectiles to make them more visually appealing with the new scale of some units.
Various tweaks to projectile explosions to increase the 'what you see is what you get' feel.
Changed some boring unit names (mass convertors, artillery peices).
All Missle Launchers and Artillery given smarter targeting priorities.
Most torpedoes now do 750 damage, with rate of fire determining a unit's damage per second.
Some unit's or individual weapons have a minimum range, meaning they are vulnerable from fire by units very close in.
Increased the beam length on all Tactical Missile Defenses.
Basic Economy Upgrades are generally cheaper and easier to get in the Research Tree.
All factions have new economic possibilities.
All factions can now spend their excess research points by some means.

All shields have been re-balanced so that they regenerate quicker while they are up, but once down, take 50% longer to get to 100% again then if they had not gone down.
All ground based anti-air (excluding those with rocket rounds) can now only target air units that are above a certain degree in their line of sight, so gunships can sneak in beneath AA while bombers can not.
Tweaked all unit colour pallets:
-UEF now always has a dark-blue-steel colour as their main colour, and their chosen team colour is their logos and stripes
-Cybran now always has a dark-red-steel colour as their main colour, and their chosen team colour is their logos and stripes
-Aeon's chosen team colour translates into a luminescent version of itself for their main colour, and a khaki-green/grey as their logos and stripes
Tweaked build time and RP cost of all experimental units/gantries/long range artillery/overcharges/nukes to push back end game (1v1 games now last approximately 20 to 40 minutes instead of the 8-16 minutes of a typical game of SupCom2, but do not think there is in any way less action or less things to do).


Assault Bots, Tanks, Mobile Artillery, and Mobile Missle Launchers are all a fraction of the size/cost/buildtime/health etc that they used to be.
Added unlockable Support Command Unit (SCU) for each side (uses replacement model, hopefully just for now but I am not a modeler!).
Engineers, Field Engineers, and Shotjas get a small bubble shield when upgraded.
Increased Jump Jet speed to 3x base speed from 2x.


Fighters, Fighter-Bombers, and Gunships are all a fraction of the size/cost/buildtime/health etc that they used to be.
Bomber and Fighter-Bomber bombs no longer track targets and now fall with gravity; non-formation ground firing over level terrain is recommended to keep bombs on target.
Bombers now have a long reload time (about a minute), so hit and run tactics are recommended otherwise bombers will just uselessly circle their target, and may end up missing their target if left on improper bombing runs.
Most air units will now land when idle over valid terrain (_flat_ land only, not water).
All the gunships base speed is now 8 (from 6).
Air units now fly at different altitudes: gunships and transports in low, fighters and experimentals in the middle, bombers up high.
Basic Transports get a bubble shield when upgraded.
Basic Transports weapon capabilities increased.
Increased cost of each factions gunships by 1RP, and transports by 2RP.


Naval has been switched up so that different units have different recon abilities, (ie, no longer can you just spam subs, you will probably need a Cruiser to give you sonar once you are outside of structure sonar range).

Point Defense now build very slowly, but are very deadly when deployed properly.
Mass conversion now converts 3000 energy to 200 mass (from 2500:250).
All Nuke Silos are now less expensive (comparable to Aeon TML launcher), but nukes are more expensive (2500m:10000e).
Nuke Silo Tactical Missle Launchers are now longer range (combine with artillery to crack shields and snipe shield generators).
Radar Station cost increased to 205 (from 80).
Research Station cost increased to 400 mass from 375.
All factions now have seperate subtle visual tweaks to their Nuke Silo Nukes.
Nukes are now way more deadly.
Increased Range of anti-nukes by 50% (50 to 75, nuke radius is 100 on the farthest outskirts).
Boomerang not changed due to devestation upon success.
Land Gantries can now be built before any experimental units are purchased (plan ahead and save 130 seconds!).
Reduced the health of factory sheields by 20%.


Overcharge customized for each faction.
Overcharge energy cost from 2000 to 5000 (but also more deadly).
All research now costs at least one RP more, with the exception of Training.
Doubled the amount of experience necessary to level up your commander (because of ability to slaughter T1 units).
Escape pod now builds very quickly to give the illusion that your headquarters teleported you a new body and your pod just programmed it. As a compromise to this obvious buff, building a new body with your escape pod alerts your enemies to your posistion via a giant scorch mark.

Many, many addtions and new paths, screenshots available on ModDB website and included in the download.



Loyalist Assault Bots can now repair, finish buildings, and reclaim from very close range when put on patrol or attack-move orders. They can also be set to repair manually.
