I’ve done a bit of modding before but it was always with games that had a built in modding feature like War in the Pacific, so honestly, not unlike Jon Snow, I know nothing. I’d like to start out by simply changing a few of the regimental names, not in the Events but in the GameData/setup if that’s possible. I’d like to do a little unimportant cosmetic work just get used to modding, stuff like getting rid of the 5th and 6th Austrian regiments and move some of the French regiments that weren’t active in the Napoleonic era to where they appear after the ones that were active in the era, etc. What I really need to know is how do I make these changes stick. I seem to be able to make the changes in the files using notepad but the changes don't appear in the game.
Also any other advise would be appreciated.
