This is what I know:
Before modding (and messing) I'd recommend you to create a second installation of the game.
Look at "\EAW\GameData\Models"
You may open each file with Wordpad.
1376AUSRudolf Ritter von Brudermann.mdl
The abilities for him are:
Code: Select all
Ability0 = $abiLand_CiC_Book
Ability1 = $abiAustrian-Hungarian
Ability2 = $abiReckless
Add, remove what you may consider. You have to delete the file "Models.Cached" in the same folder for the changes to take effect. It will be created again by the game in the next start.
The abilities in the game are listed in a separate folder in \GameData.
For serious modding and managing of multiple files, I read that this application is better:https://notepad-plus-plus.org/
Perhaps Bohemond may add some comments.
