I have been making a Let's Play of this mod, since it seemed to be the closest thing to the fun of the original JA2 without all the massive, overbearing busywork of 1.13. I have finished the original JA2 4 times in the past, with 3 of those on Expert mode.

There seems to be something deeply wrong with the progression on this mod. Or maybe I am missing a setting or something...

It is day 12, I have Drassen and the SAM site and I am half way through taking Cambria. I am seeing:

1) Teams of blackshirts roaming the countryside.
2) Redshirts playing like Blackshirts, throwing lots of grenades, aiming for the head constantly, keeping their distance... and this leads into...
3) Insane levels of equipment. I am seeing redshirts in Cambria with full spectra and/or guardian vests. All assault weapons, with hollowpoint or AP. Bountiful grenades and the insanity of it is only slightly offset by the odd guy who still has a minimum of a top of the line SMG.

Weirdly, in Drassen, everyone was a greenshirt (admin) which was also odd, but after clearing them up after expecting mostly redshirts in Drassen (this was on the first day) the enemy, patrols, in towns, wherever have mostly been packing end game level gear you'd expect to see after taking at least 2-3 towns and having completed most of the game.

I found an ancient thread here where someone brought up similar findings, but it was dismissed as congnative bias...

Other than this mod, is there a way to get a v1.12 experience on Windows 10? It's not really playable with insanity equipment from the offset, without massively cheesing the game...
