- weapon accuracies adjusted for good game play at new ranges
- adjusted vision ranges to be slightly longer for the slight weapon range increase
- increased number of fx and entities that can be on a map (tank tracks, shell holes, blood, weapons, bodies.. etc)

- Readjusted all difficulty levels:

- Easy: gives player 50% more health, quick health regeneration, and less chance of being hit. Enemy has 20% less health and accuracy

- Normal: gives player 25% more health, health regeneration is slower, increased chances of being hit. Enemy has normal health and slight decrease in accuracy

Human Realism Changes

- increased infantry endurance time, but slightly reduced movement speeds
- adjusted human reload animations to more closely match reload times for most weapons
- added heal system with medics (% chance of soldiers being healable is based on difficulty level)

Vehicles Realism Changes

- Major Update to Path System for all units
- Units will prefer to move along roads and other surface types that allow them to travel at faster max speeds when possible
- All vehicles have Max speeds in KPH (use to be MPH) and added true off road speeds to all vehicles
- Only Heavy tanks can drive through large buildings
- Dead tanks can not be pushed around by another tank
- hull destroyed tanks will always burned out, with a chance of catching the engine on fire and exploding
- updated vehicle mobility stats (turret and gun rotation, vehicle acceleration, rotation, stop and start times.. etc)
- removed Indirect Fire artillery of 105mm or larger from buy menu. Explanation: Due to hard coded changes in the GEM 2.5 engine, shared vision has been reversed and no longer provides long range spotting for indirect fire artillery. This change renders AI artillery useless and (to help balance game play) was removed for both AI and player.

- Light AA rotates quickest and has high rate of fire with low damage
- Medium AA rotates slower, lower rate of fire, requires 2-3 hits to shoot down plane
- Heavy AA, slowest rotation, slowest rate of fire, 1 hit to destroy a plane

DCG Program Files

- Added New region: Southern Europe (#7)
- added all squads XML's for each nation
- added all vehicle XML's for each nation

- added necessary vehicle and squad icons for buy menu
- added more detail weapon information for vehicles in buy menu (caliber/barrel length, MG mount locations, ect)
- Added reaction moves for computer on operation map which allows a chance for an idle unit to add its category and some extra forces to a unit being attacked by the player's own unit; this also allows computer forces from two different nations to appear in the same defense

- Added button on purchase screen to reset (clear) ALL inventories to their default loadouts with one click

- Increased starting procurement points for campaigns of attacking nation. (ex Germany starts with more points in 1941 when attacking russia vs. 1943 campaign when Russia is attacking Germany)

- Artillery strikes: prices lowered, damage lowered, increased # of shells that land, decreased accuracy, increased delay time for shells to land (specific values vary per nation to reflect historically accuracy)

- Air strike prices lowered (prices and availability
- Air strike chances adjusted per campaign (increased in cases where one nation had Air Superiority)
- Reduced default number of enemy Radio operators that can spawn
- Reduced default number of air attack runs by planes
- Adjust AI force size larger for oversized maps
- Ally forces from another nation can appear in-battle if a player attack is supported on the operation map by another nation

- No air attacks at night
- Increased chance of air attacks when player has vehicles with counter tag
- Increased chance of AI armored units on operation screen (closer to 50%) when massedarmorattackallowed is true
