EAW: Tactical Command 0.6 Beta (Space Skirmish)
(EAW v1.3 Compatible)
Take charge of your fleet and outsmart your opponent! Flank and manoeuvre, charge in at point blank range or harrass from a distance, concentrate fire or pound support ships.
Capital ships mount an increased amount of weapons batteries. Heavy turbolaser barrages and massed proton torpedo barrages penetrate shields. Fighters dance while capital ships lumber through the battlefield.
Comes with 'Scenarios', recreating battles in the SW universe. Will you do better than Thrawn? Or be crushed like a bug under the odds.
This mod is meant to be played with smaller numbers of ships, and uses my SWRealism 3.0 as a base.
Simply place the XML & TEXT folders inside your EAW/gamedata/data folder.
To uninstall, simply delete the XML folder, and
replace the TEXT folder with a backup of the original.
IMPORTANT: BACKUP YOUR TEXT FOLDER -> THIS MOD WILL OVERWRITE THE FILES WITHIN.
For Scenario play, copy the 2 XML files inside the 'BattleOf' Folder and place it inside the Scenario XML folder, then use that folder in EAW.
NOTE: There will be no victory message after you annihilate the enemy.
