How to customize "Unit Pack Mods"

Here is a tutorial how you can add, change or delete content within Unit Pack Mods.


ADDITIONAL UNITS MOD - EMPIRE (AUM-EMP)

ADDITIONAL UNITS MOD - NAPOLEON (AUM-NAP)

ADDITIONAL UNITS MOD - SHOGUN (AUM-SHO)

ADDITIONAL UNITS MOD - ROME (AUM-ROM)

ADDITIONAL UNITS MOD - ATTILA (AUM-ATT)


You need to download the Pack File Manager. A note about the use of the "Pack File Manager" for all players who are not experienced how to use this tool. I recommend to be very careful what you edit in the database tables. One wrong entry can cause crashes. Please create a backup before you edit a mod in case that it doesn't load anymore after you changed it.
