Namelist modding

From Hearts of Iron 4 Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Divisions get default names from a preset pool of historical names. All such name-pools are stored in /Hearts of Iron IV/Hearts of Iron IV/common/units/names_divisions in country-specific textfiles, e.g. "USA_names_divisions.txt" contains the division names for the United States.

Fortunately, every single file contains a good tutorial at the top and lots of existing name-pools to serve as your examples.

Still keep the following in mind:

  • Don't forget to make a safety copy (e.g. "USA_names_divisions_original.txt")
  • Maybe consider to first create an empty template in excel in order to automate the numbering (1 = { "%dst ' ' Division" } , ... continue down to 100th), as typing everything manually can be nauseating.
  • Don't forget to save the file.
