    should now have seven folder named replicant
    and six files named replicant

    Start MTW,
    choose replicant campaign

    now you can mod away in those replicant files and folders to your hearts content,
    if you change anything in names.txt or descriptions.txt make backups each time you make a change,
    that way you can go back one step and try again.

    if you make changes to name.txt or descriptions.txt please detail all changes made,

    just for those of us who may have more than one mod installed, so we can copy in your new bits to those files without losing previous expack mods,

    cheers and good luck,
    B.

    and rename the copy replicant
    If you wish to change the names of these files
    you must use numbers or upper case letters

    Same for the castle flags that go in here
    Medieval\Textures\campmap\replicant\castleflags


    The entry in the startpos does not need to be upper case.
    Might save a few hours.
