This folder contains all of the alternate versions that you can use instead of the default selections. Historical Data text files will give you relavent historical information to any of the alternate versions included in the mod. Instructions to Change text files that are scattered throughout the mod will instruct you how to change them. The alternate versions folder is structured like the res_mods folder so you can easily replace files.

  • 0.9.21
    - Fixed the Rank Insignia for Captaine (French Army) to display gold stripes instead of silver. - Fixed the missing phonetics in the Chinese and Japanese Ranks. - Corrected the Panzeroberschutze (now Oberpanzerschutze) and Curiasser (now Soldat 1e Classe) Rank Titles. Reasons for Rank Corrections: -Panzeroberschutze is the Oberschutze designation for the Mechanized Infantry whereas Oberpanzerschutze is correct for the Armored Corps -Curiasser refers to the Cavalry Unit for the unmarked private rank in the French Army. The marked, 1 striped, private had no designation for the Cavalry corps (which I assume based on how the Chef d'escadrons is used) therefore Soldat 1e Classe is more accurate (the condensed version of Soldat de première classe) to the period.
    - Fixed the PRC Rank titles after making a template for the ranks used in a word document for easy transferal to the .mo files. - Added an Alternate Scheme for the Koumingtang as their rank titles are different. Reasons for Rank Corrections: -The Chinese Koumingtang Used a Separate Ranking System from the PRC. - Da Wei is a former military rank of the PRC between Captain and Major between 1955-1965 by the PLA and is known as a Senior Captain or Captain Lieutenant in the navy (equivalent to it's soviet counterpart). - The Koumingtang do not have this rank. Instead the private superior class is used instead as a lower rank filler.
