GC DLCs upgrade project (GC Complete v3)

Post by nikivdd » Sat Jan 16, 2016 7:29 pm

Total Panzer Corps upgrade project...and more.

The upgrade of a lot of DLC scenarios with the new equipment that has been introduced by Allied Corps and Soviet Corps.

What is required?

Having the DLC(s) installed. It should work for the steam and non-steam version of the game.

What do i provide?

I provide the scenario.pzscn file, which must overwrite its original in the correct DLC folder. No other files are provided from my side.

What is recommended?

Back-up the GC(s).

Purpose of this (major) upgrade?

More diversity in enemy units.
Hopefully it will contribute to the replayability factor of the "Grand Campaign".

Your input is appreciated.

REMEMBER! BACKUP THE ORGINAL FOLDERS BEFORE EXTRACTING!

Italy plays the Grand Campaign v0.2.

https://www.sendspace.com/file/g9xylt

v0.1 includes all scenarios from DLC 39, 40 and 41

Heroes appear in the same scenarios as playing the Grand Campaign as Germany. The heroes do appear in Italian equipment though. For example, super Rudel still appears in Minsk41 scenario.

Untested scenarios: Wyszogrod and Warsaw North of DLC 39, the British branch of DLC 40, the Leningrad branch of DLC 41.

Capturable equipment:

Warsaw North/South: 149mm 149/19
Sedan: Somua S35
Dunkirk: Matilda II
Dijon: Char B1
Reims: Char B1
Metaxas Line: Matilda II
Minsk41: T-34/40
Smolensk: KV-1B
Novgorod: T-34/40
Zolotonosha: T-34/40
Vyazma: KV-1A
Streets of Moscow: KV-1B, T-34/40
Demyansk Pocket: T-34/41

Scenario changes:

DLC 39 and 40 scenarios are based on the vanilla scenarios. The exceptions are the scenario Spoils of War which includes two core joining self-propelled tank destroyers (turn 1) and the scenario Stonne with an extra airfield.
DLC 41 scenarios are based on the GC upgrade project scenarios. The exception is Vyazma with two extra airfields and two auxiliary Italian units.

Italy plays the Grand Campaign v0.2
v0.2 contains all scenarios from DLC 42East and v0.1

Fixes v0.1:
DLC 41: The German AA unit in Demyansk pocket is replaced by an Italian AA unit.
Some capturables in DLC 40 have been changed. All capturables have the German skin.

Untested scenarios: the scenarios following Stalingrad docks for the branch "disobeying orders"
Capturable equipment:

Vitebsk: T-34/41
Vorononezh: KV-1B
Novoanninsky: KV-1C
Kharkov42: T-34/41
Buzinovka Depot: KV-1C,2x SU-122, 2x M4 Sherman
Storming Stalingrad: KV-1C
Ilovlya: KV-1C

Scenario changes:
Some small adjustments here and there, mostly to Romanian forces. Few capturables were changed as well.
DLC 42 scenarios are based on the GC upgrade project scenarios.

Hello Nico,
Nice to see you attend to this matter and are integrating the new equipment in the Grand Campaign. Thus, the replayability is significantly increased. Will you do that for all the DLCs? :D

It will depend on the feedback.

I just started GC 41 with the new equipment file and the Belgrade scenario looks better without the Soviet tanks and planes.

Looks great!
Why not make this as official patch for Grand Campaign? IIrc the GC got updated once already.

Nico... First thanks for these upgrades...

I use GME so that I do not have to write over the delivered data files.

In order to use GME, I created a folder called GC_Upgrade. Within that folder I created the DLC folder. I copied your DLC folders to that. This all is in the mod folder. See below. I can then activate this mod to include your changes or deactivate to use delivered.

Yes, I do the same! :D

Nico, the d/l Links from post #1 (GC39 - GC 42 East) included the full update from each DLC, or?
