Unlike other mods this one appears not a .module file with folders, but .dll file of game engine. Thus it can be applied to any mod without any pretreatment, except if your mod reduced large unit scales to 1, so you need to revert this changes. The last one is also known fix to large unit pathing problem, but it leads to a visual bug, when large units in game create stucks, because physical and visual size being different. New fix prevents this bug, as physical and visual size now synchronized, at least in a way that relics did in vanilla. Any mod now can have better syncronized visual and physical scales of units.

For a moment this fix is under testing and any of bugs and problems are possible. If you encounterd any bug or problem, please write comments and provide as more additional information as you can.

Known issues:

  1. Retail DVD version and Steam version have different dlls (but fix is the same and available in tutorials)
  2. Problems with Unification mod (The mod has it's own fix of pathfinding, looks like they don't want to work together)

If you want to play online, you will need to have the same simEngine.dll as your opponents, otherwise you will encounter syncerror. It doesn't matter to use old or new simEngine.dll, but all players should have the same file (do not confuse with different dll files for Steam and retail version!!!). Game engine is not capable to detect differencies in dll files, so do it by yourself.

And don't forget to make a backups!

Hello everyone!

As mentioned before, different versions of the game (addons, languages, patches) have different versions of the simEngine.dll. So, there is no option for any dowloads. Previously loaded files of simEngine.dll were archived as they caused more problems then help. But I have added a new tutorial and now you are able to make mod by yourself if you need.

Still, some problems are possible, so don't forget to make a backup file!

Excellent fix good sir, I'm very glad I found this. I've been replaying each of the classic DoW game campaigns, and that issue is really gnarly when you're trying to fight with huge armies.

Anybody know how to increase the scale of the vehicles and big units?
Compared to infantry the vehicles and big units are ridiculous!

I believe true scale mod exists somewhere. Maybe even on moddb. But here is only fix, no mods.

I'm trying to find that mod, but I can't find it. I find the half scale mod, but this mod half scaled everything...

As it is a dll it will work with any mod or vanilla, but multiplayer games require ne type of dll (old or new doesn't matter)
