It appears that you are correct, the close trait does not work, but multipurpose to infantry does.
A bridge too far?
When they hard coded close into the infantry class they dropped the trait.

Delete nothing!!! Rename.

Rename GC43East as GC43EastOld.

Place the new downloaded GC43East into DLC folder.

To use Nico’s new equipment file:
Rename equipment.pzeqp to equipment.pzeqp.old
Place Nico's equipment.pzeqp into Data
There comes a time on every project when it is time to shoot the engineer and ship the damn thing.

After I had to restart again, I played through 41 now and didn`t notice any problems.

Hi,
after some years (!), I recently decided to play some panzer corps, again. I realy love that there is some sort of update for the GC. Thank you for all the work - the result is realy awesome.
I have finished '39 of the german camaign and wanted to give some sort feedback for the equipment file. I would propose to:
- give the pak 3.7cm a movement of two. I think it helps to devlope some niche for that unit in which it may be usable, i.e., for training lategame tankdestroyers. Since the gun could be moved by man-power in real life, I think such change would be reasonable.
- remove that additional unit of ammunition for the ss artillery. I think it makes them vastly overpowered. The +1 attack bonus for ss units should already be sufficient and the artillery units are -in vanilla- balanced regarding their ammunition values.
- delay the availability of the panzer iii and iv model a bit. It makes the early scenarios a lot easier.
Thank you again for your work!
Best regards!

GC42 is missing awards.pzdat and gamerules.pzdat which the other GC downloads all had.
Other than that I`m halfway through without noticing any problems.

Grand campaign 39-45 east and west is complete.
As promised, the whole package in a single download.
Unfortunately, to add it here as an attachment is not possible because max filesize is 2 mb.
The download link has also been posted in the first post of this thread.
A special thanks to Ralle for his regular feedback.

Hello Nikivdd!! Thanks for sharing your absolutely awesome modding work!! :-)

Just a question: I have integrated the Grand Campaign 39 and 40 with the More Panzer Content 35-40... Can the new scenarios be integrated in this installation? Can I just replace the old files with the new ones?
Thanks again!

Thanks Guille.
New scenarios should work with MPC because nothing was changed to those vanilla scenarios that could cause a problem.

DLC GC Special 1: Export Operation Sea Lion core army into DLC 43 East
campaign.zip
(1.2 KiB) Downloaded 122 times
Back-up the campaign.pzdat file from the folder DLC\GC43East\data.
Extract and overwrite campaign.zip inside the folder DLC\GC43East\data.
Remember that as long you use this custom campaign.pzdat file, you will not be able to import the GC42East core army into GC43East. Simply place the original campaign.pzdat back to make it possible.

DLC Special 2: Reserve pool not cleared in opening mission St Nazaire in DLC 42-43 West
GC42-43West St Nazaire.rar
(11.22 KiB) Downloaded 130 times
If you'd like a full eastern front core army experience to the western front, than perhaps this tweaked scenario is helpful.
This altered version of the opening mission of St Nazaire no longer clears the army reserve pool after the deployment phase and no longer substracts +9K prestige at turn 2 (for those who thought that selling off the rest would give a nice prestige reserve).

The DLC Specials are also available for download in the first post of this thread.

Back-up the St Nazaire pzscn and pzloc files in the GC42-43West\data folder.
Extract and overwrite the zip into the same folder.

Thanks Nikivdd,
Good job!
But in several successive scenarios, it appears "Capture all objectives AND eliminate all 3 Polish Leaders" as conditions of decisive victory.
Best regards

DLC Special 3: Rudel appears in the mission Oxford of the Operation Sea Lion campaign
Oxford.zip

During this mission of the Operation Sea Lion campaign, the super Rudel might now appear. The same prerequisite must be met as in DLC 41 East in order for Super Rudel to arrive on the field of battle.

Back-up the Oxford pzscn and pzloc file in the DLC\Sealion\data folder
Extract and overwrite this zip into the same folder.

These are the DLC45 East scenarios
I think it's a wrong copy / paste in * .pzloc files from Goldap to Selow Heights.
The 2 branches.
The objectives are good from Berlin.

Best regards

Thanks for all the feedback and reports (also by PM).

An update and a new downloadlink. This update should fix the victory requirements in DLC 45 East.
I also included the DLC 39 extended version. This version allows you to begin the GC with a purchasable starter core. The folder that needs copy/paste is a subfolder of the GC 39 extended folder.

The download link is also available in the first post of this thread.
