      Good call sir. I would suggest checking out their forums for some of the mods, such as the battle size increaser, and there are several graphical mods, texture replacements, HDR lighting, more bushes and grass on the ground, etc that are also very nice.

      While the combat "Feels" really good on any difficulty setting, you may find it to not be challenging enough on lower difficulties. The physics of it still feels very cool, but its pretty easy to be a "one man wrecking crew" on lower difficulties.
