dude its definataly the mod i have the same problem just uninstall the game say yes to saving ur saves and configuration and reinstall so the mod in it is gone and u still hav ur saves. id save the modding until u get bored with the game or want a diffrent perspective or really just until ur btr with modding itself.
i am having trouble with my land battles and some space battles in EAW FOC.
the zann consortium are completely unattackable by my units in both land and space. and when i retreat from the ground battles it just deadlocks the timer stays at zero. the only mod i have installed is increase space population cap for tactical space battles to 999999.
