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.

    • With no power in storage they do next to nothing, but are fairly catastrophic when full. The upshot of which is that if someone gets a shot off on one of them while your shields are down from low power not much happens, but if they punch their way through your shields it will make a mark.

    • The problem was the fake Fatboy I created, to be able to move the real Fatboy into the Gantry, had a fake AA weapon with no targeting restrictions (because it could never fire it) and BlackOps had a script that tried to give all AA weapons a restriction so they couldn't shoot their nuke satellite, which failed when it found a weapon with no restrictions.
  • Removed all units not in a releasable state (the UEF Drop-Pod Artillery and the UEF Experimental Gunship).
