Attached are two files required to play the 1939 More Historical Mod. Backup your original 1939 scenario folder, or the consts.ini and land_units.csv files, then replace those two in that scenario folder with the two files in the mod.

changes (marked with #gwg comment in the consts.ini):
- increased APs for all units to better fit with the map scale
- scaled down land combat results, to allow for less complete annihilations and more retreats
- scaled down air to air combat results
- scaled down costs for producing and reinforcing/repairing land and air units
- much reduced costs for amphibious transports
- less losses in amphibious assaults
- more chance of making an amphibious assault
- increased range for paratroop drops
- reduced strength of Norwegian and Danish forces

Effect of these changes: now possible to recreate historical timelines for war plans, unrealistic minor power strength corrected, air war is more fun (because not exhorbitantly expensive), amphibious assaults more realistic, less likely that a land unit can be completely destroyed in one combat situation (more likely to retreat), but this is offset in part by more APs for attackers.

I've only played this from the German side, so a lot of testing from different perspectives needs to be done. However, to me, the game is so much more fun to play this way. I may need to adjust the retreat possibility again, to make it even more likely still.

One thing: the Russian AI is incredibly aggressive, and with more APs, can do some serious damage to isolated enemy units. I strongly advise anyone using this mod to watch their flanks!

I'm not the greatest player going round these parts, but with your mod,
I got Warsaw in 3/4 of turn 1 and immediately headed west.
Captured Paris end of Turn 4, and am heading east to see if Russia is so easy.
These guys are ubermensch!

It shouldn't be so easy to go straight for the West after taking Warsaw.
