How To: Edit a unit name/description

Go to Data\text and open the file export_units.txt

Here there is a list of the units and their names and descriptions.

The format is:
Code:
{unit_faction}	Unit Name

{unit_faction_descr}
Unit Description

{unit_faction_descr_shor}
Short Unit Description
Do not edit the text in the curly brackets {} There should be a tab between the unit name tag and the name itself, and a line break after the descriptions (i.e. the description is on the line below it)

Edit as you like, save quit and run the game. Easy
