There are several people that hang out on the Discord, but it seems that most people bounce around between mods. With the general population shrinking, most people I've encountered are willing to try a variety of mods (myself included). It's simple enough to use the Wargame Mod Installer to switch and not lose your decks.

As Airland Dragon is most suitable for PvE gameplay, it is niche, and therefore hasn't generated a dedicated community.

How is preventing the game joining to non modded lobby rooms with modded RD?

If I understand what you're asking, the game allows modded games to join unmodded ones, but there will be desynchronization. This is also prohibited by Eugen, so make sure you know who you're playing with. If you set up a public lobby that is modded, make sure it is clearly labeled and that anyone who joins understands what it means.

Love this mod, we play it multiplayer in a little group of 2 - 4, if anyone like to play with us with this mod then leave an answer here.
We are from Denmark, just so you know with time zones and all that.

Hmm maybe one thing. The command vehicles., maybe lower the speed or cost of them. It's Ai related. The Ai tends ro Rush it's command unit in front of it's main forces easy getting destroyd. Otherwise i dont have any suggestiins.

New version is uploaded. I just had to tweak some of the deck rules to accommodate the new deck era.

Discussed on Discord.


Performance is equal or only slightly better than AIM-9L while the only relevant unit already has AIM-9M. As such, there is no reason to add it.



Given to Syoujyu-Buntai '85 (now '90) and availability reduced by one step. Identical transport options are given to the earlier version of the unit.



Given to UDT/SEAL, making them a 1991 unit. Teukjeonsa had a Minimi for some reason- it was exchanged for an M60 "Shorty".
