Need a how to...

How does one add leaders to the game?
I figure I'll need to add .uni and .mdl files and graphics. That I can do, but how to get them into the .scn files?
I have OpenOffice but my .Scn files only open in Writer (all 703 pages.)
HELP Please.

Here's my version of Clark and Langlade roughly done in Photoshop for the Army and Fleets folder, and the unit portraits above which go in the Units folder.
Copies of originals and a separately named file for when you patch.

What about 1,10e with 110d saves since there are a host of new options?
I'd hate to have to give up my AAR. :p leure:
