About this mod

This is a large scale rework with PvE in mind. Gameplay takes priority, staying close to vanilla abstractions, but doctrinal and technological authenticity is strongly considered. The singleplayer campaigns were edited to remain playable and consistent with the mod.

Changelogs
This is a personal project that started as an attempt to bring back the fun of Wargame:ALB's combat while incorporating the newer systems in Red Dragon.  Many years later, the scope has far exceeded the original intent, but I'm extremely happy with how it turned out.

This is a large scale rework with PvE in mind and focusing on "believability" as opposed to "realism". Gameplay takes priority, though it should still feel authentic.
The singleplayer campaigns were edited to remain playable and consistent with the mod.

--------------Installation

1. Extract contents of download and run the installer
2. Select your root Wargame Red Dragon folder when asked

--------------Uninstallation

Modded decks are not compatible with the vanilla game. The game will crash if you don't delete your decks prior to reverting back to vanilla.

Option A
1. Delete your decks
2. Run the installer and select the uninstall option

Option B
1. Delete your decks
2. Find the installer backups created in \Wargame Red Dragon\Backup\Airland Dragon and copy them into \Wargame Red Dragon\Data\WARGAME\PC

Option C
1. Delete your decks
2. Revalidate the game through Steam

If you did not delete your decks and cannot install the mod to do so, I have included a blank user profile in the Backup\Blank Profile folder.
