Perhaps "-DWGUNITS" will get you there.
I still can't figgure this out, but I did notice that there is some reference to feet and inches that must be the factor. A default autocad based file defaults to the inches section, and one of my files with a few civil 3D alignments uses the feet section. I'm not sure if there is a place to set the units, but it doesn't appear to be linked to the drawing units or insertion units. If ANYONE can help, please post!
It depends on the source drawing settings.
If you template units are set to feet the drawing created from it are going to have their units set to feet and use those scales initially. If you then change to inches, then you will get a mix of the 2 as the feet scale will have been referenced and then the inches scales will be added.
That was the key. Thanks Jeff.
