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 (fix is available in downloads, waiting for tests)
  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!

Hi guys! I have studied a problems with this fix and come up to some conclusions. If you don't know it has several issues:

  • looks like different translations of game have different engine dlls (don't know why), so fix for english version is not work for others
  • retail and steam versions also have different dlls, making a number of required dlls quite problematic (also retail versions have much more languages available)

Unfortunately not so many people who downloaded fix wrote a feedback, so any other issues are possible.

It is possible to solve 2 known issues by some kind of "patcher", however due to the nature of such programming this "patcher" may be distinguished as virus in some antivirus applications. To not confuse people I decided it's better to save only english steam versions of fix as the most popular on steam.

Regarding retail version I still want to write a patcher, but I will not add it to this page until it becomes antivirus-friendly. Until this moment I can manually fix your dll, if you want (it can be easily checked by any antivirus) or send you a patcher when it will be ready.

Thanks for your attention and don't forget to backup your files!

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)
