Supreme Commander Discussion
here is the way how you modify stats of your
buildings, vehicles, etc. Just go to the
"gamedata" folder and open "units.scd" with
WinRAR. Extract everything within this folder.
Now you have plenty of subfolders in "units".
Each folder has a ".pb" file, which you have
to open with a text editor like notepad. Near the
top of each .pb file you get the information about
the object (like UEF_select_air - so now you know
its a unit of the UEF). Now you can set the values
as you like (health, regeneration rate, buildtime,
energy costs, mass costs, etc).
When you've finished modifying your files, just
move all the folders back to the units.scd with
WinRAR (it automatically replaces existing files).
Since there are no trainers or cheats known for
the campaign mode yet, this will help you a bit.
OK i just rar-ed it now but the size isn't the same it's like 200 mb difference doed it mater?

Extract the folder (drag and drop the folder into the directory)
Edit the files, then reopen the units.scd in winrar and drag the units folder you extracted with the edited stuff, into the units.scd winrar window. A little box should pop up, just press OK and it should compress everything back in, including the files you just edited.
You should now be good to go. However you may have to start again on campaign mode, as it screwed up my campaign mode when i tried to load it.
You did nothing wrong. The .scd files are not compressed. When you add your modded files back a box pops up in Winrar asking how good you want the compression to be... Anyways, if you pick "store only" all the files are added to the .scd file without compression. The .scd files are installed like this.
Whats the difference? I'm not sure yet but would seem the more compression the longer it will take the game to uncompress what it needs.
