Unzip this folder into a temporary directory, cutting and pasting into the WW1G DB, GrandCampaignFour and GrandCampaignTwo Scenario folders, replacing the original files. Now go win the War. From scratch...
The enclosed Units.csv file contains a number of modifications and cannot be used with any other stock scenarios.
This mod should restore something resembling naval balance to WW1G and the British Royal Navy is unlikely to face annihilation after a mere ten or so combat rounds at the hands of an inferior High Seas Fleet. A number of values and modifiers have been changed to lessen the otherwise unstoppable power of the Kaiser’s dreadnoughts. As a small offset for the taming of the uber-battleships however, Austria-Hungary may now build U-Boats to add to the tonnage war. Also the Japanese Navy has been adjusted to better reflect its 1914 OOB.
British Admiral Doveton Sturdee is no longer a paltroon. On his worst day he was a far better commander than Milne or Troubridge on their best and he led the RN to its only unambiguous naval victory of the Great War. Feel free to disagree and not install the modded Leaders.csv file.
German colonial garrisons are locked in place until July 1916. This prevents all manner of nasty AI behavours but if you don't agree, do not install the modded WarPlanTurnRules.csv file and have fun wiping out the Anglo-French colonys.
Reinforcements no longer need be placed in major cities and may by placed in any owned and supplied province. If you feel that this should not be possible given the scale of WW1G and one or two-month turns, do not install GameRules.csv
