Is there a supported way to add nationalities/factions or units to existing or correct ranks of existing factions?

I've been wondering what the point/purpose of them changing the files like that.

It was shown how easy it was to data-mine weapon and vehicle stats and expose how bad and simplistic they were… 😛

You can add units to factions, you can add new factions, you can correct ranks and rewards, you can add new squadrons to existing or new factions etc...

I made a little mod for experience gaining speed, to get medals much slower and longer flight times for ranks. 

 

Something for more ambitious pilots, the leveling was imo to fast. I was about to release this mod to public after longer test. Plus new medals images, stripes and unitis for Poland, those can be mod in 2.7 but not names, witch are without polish letters in DCS currently - bug!. Polish medal pictures comparing to US are ugly, I have no idea like someone accept those.

 

If EDs is not doing anything around this, would be a good thing to leave those doors open for moders. Maybe we can come with some more creative idea that would be beneficial for all the community.  However, if there is something is in the air... well I wish to know about it, but if not - PLEEEESSE LEAVE DB_COUNTRIES ALONE! 😭 😜

@BIGNEWY - any chance for an official comment on what/why the db_countries was encrypted?  Might ED consider opening this back up for modding?  There are several nice logbook mods out there that many of us use that rely on db_countries.

They also need to make the files containing the units editable, like USA.lua, they where in scripts\database\troops

 

We will include it also.

thanks

I don't understand where you're coming from.  I'm saying it was dumb for ED to encrypt it.

I mean, if one little post from a junior poster put a damper in their motivations to remedy alienating popular non-game breaking mods that add things that should already be in the game to begin with,, they have bigger issues.

whilst your second statement is clearer; i honestly thought you were saying you didn't understand why people wanted to make changes to the db_countries.lua file, rather than why users would want to... the tone of your second statement is not cool, if you don't understand that then, understand that dev's are people with feelings too. 

 

In either case ED are reverting the change, which is great to see!

May I request here about adding some aircraft types to some countries in db_countries.lua ?

 

One of my request is adding IL-76MD to LIBYA.

Libyan Air Force often charter commercial fleet's IL-76T/TD/M operated by Libyan Air Cargo or former Jamahiria Air Transport.
