BrewLAN is a mod for Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance that has been in on and off development by a team of one for almost a decade. It adds a wide variety of new units for all factions, as well as offering several new game modes and features. The core design goals for the mod are simple; to add new, interesting, and visually aesthetic units which complement those already in existence and to maximise technical compatibility with other mods.
BrewLAN point seven and two halves. Because two halves don't make a whole. Delete any previous versions before installing.
As some of you may well be aware, version 0.8 is delayed on account of I broke my leg. In its place, I present version 0.7 and two halves. It doesn't have all the content I wanted to add in 0.8, but it exists, unlike the missing content. Don't expect 0.8 this year. February 2017 maybe? But don't quote me on that.
If applicable, remove all old versions of BrewLAN and its sub-mods before continuing. If you don't this can cause desync due to file renames and deletions causing some old files to remain.
Inside the zip file you will find 3 folders, /gamedata/, /maps/, and /mods/. These will need merging with your pre-existing /gamedata/ and /maps/ folders and your possibly pre-existing /mods/ folder. These folders will exist wherever Forged Alliance is installed. Options for where it could be installed include:
...\Steam\SteamApps\common\supreme commander forged alliance\
...\Program Files\THQ\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander - Forged Alliance\
Once you have located the correct folder simply drag those three folders in there, and allow those folders to merge. If you didn't have a mods folder before, congratulations, now you do.
BrewLAN 0.7.5.5 is at least mostly with FAF; the custom strategic icons don't work, this includes the ones from the Experimental Icons Overhaul, and possibly some other icons and custom buttons might be missing. But unless they have released a ninja update that I have not checked compatibility with, the all important things should work.

Fair warning on comments that require attention, when the comments section gets split into multiple pages it can be very easy for me to completely overlook comments, especially if they aren't at the end of the thread and are replying to an old comment.
Now go kill robits.
