I'm posting here the A3R mod files I provided to Hubert back in January for the Community Pack update. Same stuff, but available here too.

Here are the version notes for v1.2:

Advanced Third Reich for Strategic Command WWII: War In Europe, v1.2

- reduced Russia initial mobilization from 30% to 25%
- slightly reduced chances by 5-10% for sandstorms in Africa and Middle East, snow in Europe during winter, and significant reductions in frozen weather (to permit more effective combats)
- doubled initial BRPs to help jumpstart spending options
- made significant revisions to economics to get back to boardgame originals:
-- all industrial areas now 20 BRPs and all oil now 30 BRPs
-- Britain (was getting about 80/turn and should have been getting 125/turn)
- Hamilton added as Canadian industrial area
- one Canadian oil for variant and one for total war increase if London occupied by Axis
-- France (was getting about 70/turn and should have been getting 80/turn)
- changed Sedan to major city (this also helps Germany)
