Hi there, a link for a non-steam download (in .zip format, ~50MB) for the Factions Plus mod as requested:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/108HRKhhSysCPqMQbD2Rmy-qtHh2XgWlT/view?usp=sharing

Mod installation: unzip the file, add the resulting folder into the Armored Brigade/data/database folder, next to 'default'

----------------------
Hotfix 19/7/2021:
Fixed crash caused by taiwanese marines
Hotfix 4/3/2021:
- Fixed errors causing crashes for players who don't own the DLC
Hotfix 28/2/2021:
- Fixed missing South Vietnamese planes from DLC update
Patch 26/2/2021:
- Updated for new Armored Brigade patch and DLC
- Updated rocket/MRLS units with new specific NATO icons
- Reworked rocket/MRLS units
- Updated Israeli Uzi with new sound effect, changed weapon stats to match DLC faction

Description:

Adds a lot of new factions to the roster (to date, 13 complete).

- Australia
- People's Army of North Vietnam
- People's Liberation Army (China)
- Argentina
- Egypt
- Israel
- Iran
- South Korea (ROKA/Marines)
- Japan
- South Vietnam (ARVN)
- Cuba
- Taiwan (ROCA/Marines)
- Mongolia


Hundreds of new sprites, both reskinned and custom made. New units and formations meticulously researched and adapted into the game as accurately as feasible. Some new unit types adapted, e.g motorcycle scout, man-portable rocket artillery, flame launcher infantry, etc. Virtually all combat vehicles used by the new factions and workable unit types from the ingame period of 1965 - 1991 have been added: e.g Israel has several halftrack variants as mortar carriers and SP AA-guns. Some minor liberties taken in the name of playability: e.g, ROKA infantry given slightly more M67 recoilless rifles than issued historically.

To use the mod, simply select the 'change settings' option when booting up the game, then select 'Factions Plus' from the custom database dropdown list. DLC not required, although strongly encouraged to support the developers, not to mention the new factions, maps, campaigns and battles which make it well worth it.
Enjoy.

A true little gem and labour od love!

By the way, the incoming patch will have a set of proper icons for both infantry and vehicle MRLS.

That’s quite a compliment considering the source. I need to finally pull the trigger and check this out!

Would it be possible to also make a standard zip file available for download. My computer apparently doesn't like the .7z format and doesn't recognize it as something that can be extracted from.

I asked this on Steam as well...

If I use this mod, can I play the default db scenarios? Or do I always have to switch back to the default db to play them?

Scenarios are tied to the DB they were created with.

OK. Is there anyway to convert them? It doesn't look like they changed any of the original data.

Yes, and it is very easy actually.

In scenario XML file there is a parameter:

<string name="databaseID" value="default" />

Where "default" should be replaced by a new database value. Of course, it is highly recommended that the copy of the original scenario is edited.

Just a follow up. I made copies of the out-of-the-box scenarios to the user folder. I then changed all that default scenario XMLs to use the factions db. Worked perfectly. In fact, I took a bunch of workshop scenarios and did the same thing. Took a little folder manipulation, but it all worked like a charm.

Very nice mod, can't be overstated! Do I have your permission to use the sprites for my own mod? If I release it I will make sure to credit you properly.

This a common file extraction utility.

I have a problem with this mod. When I start the game appears error:
CL_IODeviceProvider_Files:::CL_IODeviceProvider_Files():Unable to open file ...\ArmoredBrigade\data\graphis\flag\flag_ru.pnp.

When I get this file?

Hi qsmiron, all I can suggest is making sure you haven't gotten a corrupted download. That file name doesn't exist in the mod, I've double checked. Let m,e know if it works, it should.

Thanks

Have you selected Faction Plus database when launching the game?
