Others that are wrong that I have seen are, Pre-Dreadnought Duncan in the database the (N) is missing, in game the ship is spelt Ducan.Then their is Malborough,Colosus. They should be Marlborough & Colossus.It looks like I'm going to have to go through, all the ship spelling in the database, in order to fix all the mistakes, I would have thought that after years since the game has been released, these errors would have been sorted by now.

I note that your naval mod does not add any new ships to the German navy?
On a side note about Admirals, how come the British Admirals all have very poor stats?

Random wrote:This was intentional since, in my opinion, there were no additional ships or ship units to add. The cruisers that you mention, and the obsolete Riskflotte battleships of the Wittlesbach and Kaiser Barbarossa classes may have saw brief service in the Baltic before being laid up and demilitarized. The OOB for the front-line ships on foreign service is pretty complete (and CL Karlsruhe will not self-destruct on you) so since I place a premium on the history (or at least as I interpret it) the German navy was essentially complete.
Agreed, I have written elsewhere that the selection of British leaders in particular is perplexing as is their game statistics. It's why I created a mod adding additional leaders.
Leaders are easy to mod to taste though, see the [color="#00FF00"]...\DB\Leaders.csv[/color] file. Adding new leaders is pretty straight forward and to include new leaders in a scenario it is necessary to add them to the [color="#00FF00"]Detachments.csv[/color] and [color="#00FF00"]Nations.csv[/color] files for the selected scenario.
As to why the leader ratings are what they are, I would not like to speculate other than to acknowledge that historical game design and development is subject to the same sort of subjective analysis as the history itself with the added caveat that the game's design team also try to achieve some specific effects for the Players. A tremendous amount of thought went into WW1G, the attention to detail is phenomenal and if not everything works as intended (like Entente supply through neutral Greece), much can be edited to taste by the Player.
