Hello!

Which mod on WWII do you advise?

What tools used to create and change the units?

Modding A&A is a fairly complex process, but looking around on the forum here and asking some of our senior modders (theharkonnen and gizmotron especially) should yield all the information you need regarding modding.

However in general the programs you will need are:

A .RWD extractor (The Kohan II website has a download for this)
A text editor for opening and/or editing unit files when they are extracted (Notepad will do)

and if you are planning on editing the models used for the units

Nifskope (which can be downloaded from the nifskope website.



As for what mods to try out, I cant quite help you there, as I have actually never played an A&A mod aside from my own.

The game uses .TGI files instead of .txt files.



As for number of soldiers, that can get rather complex based on what regiment layout is being used.

What did the error say?

Yes, the format "TGI" (open file as "txt").

I had added other lines of "[slot]" (hoping to increase the soldiers of the Regiment) in the file "regiment_usa_infantry.tgi" in the "USA" inside "Regiments".

The error dialog is:

An error has occured:
ERROR:
"File Path: regiment_usa_infantry."

Ah.

Yes, you cant add additional units to a regiment by doing that; by default the infantry regiment layout has 9 units.

In order to increase the number of units in a regiment beyond that you must create a new organisation layout.


I dont remember who did this, but somebody on the site did manage to accomplish that.

Thank you!

I get it!

You need to create a new layout.

Perhaps this new layout that created the user of this forum is also found in a mod!?

There is an example of it in Gizmotron's user mod, yes.
