Hello,
I've started to play CC (well I never realy stopped) but when I realized that there are rereleases of the old CC games like Invasion Normandy and Battle of the Bulge  and also completely new ones like Panther in the Fog I was totally hooked again.

What I really really like is the acurate depiction of WW2 squad sizes, weapons and loadouts (contraty to the older games).

I'd like to make some changes to the WAR sqauds however (mostly give the Volksgrenadier Squad StG44 instet of MP40) but also some other minor changes.

For CC4 and CC5 there was this awesome editor which allowed you to change just about everything, squad sizes, soldiers on a squad,the weapon of a special soldier, also basic weapons data. But unfortunately I can't find anything like this for CC WAR.
Can anyone help me?

Kind regards

In WAR and the other newer releases you use a spreadsheet program to do your data edits. DL the WAR workbook from the DL section of this site.

Thank you very much first!

Unfortunately I'm not sure how to use it.

Maybe you or anyone could give me a quick tutorual or point me in a direction where I may find one.

Do I have to keep the WaR Workbook at a special folder on my PC (like in the game folder) or does it not matter where I keep it?

If I wanted to replace the MP40 in the VG Sturm squad with StG44 what would I do?

Open the axsteams file with ediotror word pat and the what would I look up in the workbook and which numbers do I have to replace?

And what would I need to do If I wanted to change the number of clips carried by a specific solider?

Regrads and thanks in advance!

Keep the workbook (WB) anywhere - It doesnt matter.

To change the weapon carried in a squad - you would actually change the soldier.
- Go into soldier tab of the WB, take note of whats the index number of the MP40 and the StG44 soldier.
- Go into axsteams tab and find the team you want to change - locate the soldier coloumns and change the number from MP40 soldier to StG44 solider number.

save this sheet from the counter down ,  as "tab delimited text"  name it Axsteams.txt
Backup your original Axsteams.txt file and replace it with the new one. enjoy Stg44s!

Number of clips is in the soldiers sheet.

Ohh OK, I think i got the hang of it!

Soldiers of the squad changed for MP40 leader 2x MP 40 Soldier and MP40/Panzerfaust to StG44 leader 2 x StG44 soldier and StG44/Panzerfaust, numbers of clip carried changed from 7 to 6.
I backuped the whole base folder before I changed it.

Thank you very much!

I might have a few more questions over the next few weeks but looks like I've got the hangof it for themoment.

Thankx again!
Kind Regards

Maybe TT's VetBoB mod (adapted to WaR by platoon_michael) can be useful to you.

You can download the mod here

If you have Microsoft Excel maybe have a look at this.
I tried to make it user friendly for myself when I was learning how.
