Hi Uveso

I've tried reinstalling the mod afresh. Good news the weapons do now seem to work as intended!
Bad news, the unit build menu icons are still showing as "blue circle placeholder" icons. Ok, as I said before, this is cosmetic and doesn't stop me from using this mod, but it would be nice to get it working 100%!

What I did forget to mention is that I'm using the Steam version of SC:FA, so it has a different directory path to the one you shown (although interestingly I do have that said path as well)!

PS/ I cannot provide you with this "game.log" file neither!

If you like to start a non online game with a Desktop shortcut:

Make a desktop-shortcut from the file:
C:\ProgramData\FAForever\bin\ForgedAlliance.exe
(Rightclick the file and select "Send to" -> Desktop Shortcut")


Fallen flat at this first hurdle..... I have this directory, but it's empty, there is no "ForgedAlliance.exe" in it!

The tooltips are seriously lacking. Many installed weapon systems don't appear in the units' tooltips at all.
There's no text detailing why any unit that is very similar to another unit of the same faction and tech should be built opposed to the other one (T1 tanks, mostly; but also some similar mechs).
Units in general have the habit of already launching their weapons before being properly aligned towards the target, causing their projectiles to hit own or allied structures on accident if they're facing the wrong direction initially (after repairs / retreating). And there's also a good amount of random, all over the place missile scatter that just hits everything within a huge range, not just enemies at the targeted spot.
BUG: The UEF tactical missile launcher experimental doesn't seem to be able to attack anything.
I recommend using different death animation sounds for T1, T2, T3 and T4 experimentals, so that only T4 ones have that nuke explosion sound and all others lesser effects, representing their lower tech level and helping to avoid confusion if just some gunship died and not some actually valueable T3 or T4 unit.

The mod itself has a good amount of fresh, new units and some cool ideas. Just how to integrate the new experimentals into the regular game will be a balance challenge.

Edit: Even despite playing on FAF I had to copy the TotalMayhem\sounds folder contents into the Supreme Commander FA\Sounds folder for all unit sounds actually playing in the game while using the mod. Post#1 tells that's not necessary while playing on FAF but that seems to be either wrong or outdated. Btw. downloaded this mod from the FAF mod vault.

Supcom can't handle weapons with the same name in some cases. You could try my tooltip mod:

(please also enable "Show Armament Build in Factory Menu" in game)

Yes sadly there are no such details. And will never be. The author of this mod is gone long time ago.

Same as above. I only bugfix or path the mod for the latest FAF version. I don't change anything else.

Unit brnt2exm2 - Advanced Tactical Missile Launcher.
The launcher only works in stationary mode. But there is a bug that prevent the transform button from showing up.
I repaired this now and will release the fix with the next TM version (1.36)

"Should" work. Don't know what happened. Please add a game.log to your next post and i will take a look.

[Edit] Found a bug that was deleting all tooltip data. Will be fixed in 1.36
