More has been done, all downloads are available in the first post of this thread. As a quick reference i will post them here as well.
The equipment file i have been working on, is based on vanilla entries only; the SS units are the same graphics as for the SE units.

Nick, I am a huge fan of your work in all aspects PC-related i.e. official DLCs, other scenarios, equipment mods, etc. (I even created this forum account just to thank you, as I normally prefer to be the quiet bystander/observer on forums). I have sincere and utter admiration for what you've done and continue to do (whether it's paid or unpaid, the quality and quantity is what matters really). So... thank you!

Now that introductions are complete, may I ask which of your campaign extensions are complete and ready for a full play through apart from the Vanilla campaign you mentioned just now?

I simply ask because reading previous posts in this thread, I could not find a distinction like "Vanilla Campaign Completed" when a campaign is completely revamped- I can only figure that you worked continuously on editing scenario maps from different DLCs and you finished the work, moving on to another DLC.

Brilliant- looking forward to those then!

Could anyone tell me if they have done any of the completed ones on Rommel difficulty? I.e. is there some drastic prestige change to the original campaigns that would make the playthrough much harder?

I noticed that the equipment file is not included with the Vanilla Campaign SendSpace files. Was this intentional?

Yes, it is only available separately; it also compatible with all the other vanilla content. I still consider the equipment file as unfinished thou.

Hi all, I have down loaded the extended GC 39 and installed ( I had real issues with WinZip) I have this working on my pc if I load Panzer C direct, but I do not get the extended version when I am going through Steam. I assumed that steam uses the installation on my pc? I must be doing something wrong or have missed something.
any help please,

Martin

Installation folders of steam and non-steam version are different.

Steam:
For ex. GC 39 should be unzipped (and overwrite) the GC 39 folder in <drive:> steamlibrary\steamapps\common\panzer corps\DLC\

You either place the e-file (and overwrite) the existing one in steamlibrary\steamapps\common\panzer corps\data\ or place it in steamlibrary\steamapps\common\panzer corps\DLC\GC39\data\
Don't forget if you use my custom e-file, you must continue to do so in the following chapters of the grand campaign; it might mess up core import otherwise.
Also, i recommend to back-up necessary files before extraction and overwriting.

Nick, would it be too forward of me to ask when can we expect the rest of the Grand Campaign updates? I'm slowly working my way through it (love the changes), and am at West 42/43 and East 43, so will need some more dru... I mean content soon!

Btw no issues so far with difficulty settings- pace feels more or less the same as before!

Is this the beginning of more changes in regarding to the DLC 45 East? Or only this scenario?
