This modification adds numeral veterancy descriptions to all multiplayer units, replacing the original, inaccurate descriptions. That's not all - it also improves other English localization strings such as outdated or plainly broken ones. I tried to keep the changes subtle and in Company of Heroes 2 fashion so they don't look out of place. You can use this modification in automatch without any risks or bugs associated with it.

Note:
You need to reinstall the mod after almost every Company of Heroes 2 update, since Relic often adds new strings with each update. The mod itself needs a update after every bigger Company of Heroes 2 update that adds new content. Using an outdated version after bigger updates may cause string errors.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Download:
Improved English Localization (30.12.2016).rar

30.12.2016 Changes:
Fixed SU-85 veterancy rank 2 string being outdated.

Installation:
The file inside the archive belongs to "Steam\SteamApps\common\Company of Heroes 2\CoH2\Locale\English". Installing it over other languages works as well. For example: You play the game in German. Rename the file from "RelicCoH2.English.ucs" to "RelicCoH2.German.ucs" and copy-paste it into the "German" folder. You should backup your original localization file.

Changelog:

NUMERAL VETERANCY DESCRIPTIONS

Added numeral veterancy descriptions to all multiplayer units.

Known Issues:
Jaeger Light Infantry and Stormtroopers veterancy level 3 share the same string.
Conscripts and Captain veterancy level 3 share the same string.
Vickers and HMG42 veterancy level 3 share the same string.
Pershing and Comet veterancy level 3 share the same string.
10,5cm leFH 18 Artillery veterancy rank 2 and 3 share the same string as 4 and 5.

He is a friend of mine, it was just a troll comment of him. There is no virus or any other questionable stuff bundled in the archive - only the localization file.

It's actually a simple text file. You can open it with Notepad and see how it is organized.

Great idea! The often inaccurate or just plainly wrong help texts have always annoyed me. Have you considered modifying vehicle names to make them more consistent? They often seem somewhat arbitrary, especially for Axis tanks.

A manual change of strings after every game update that changes veterancy values is required.

Yeah, I did consider doing such thing as well. Didn't want to overload the mod though right off the bat.

Just to clarify, you are refering to things like the Ostheer Panther being named "Panther PzKpfw V Medium Tank" while the OKW version is named "Panther PzKpfw V 'Medium Tank'" and multiple vehicles missing their type, like Heavy Assault Gun for the Sturmtiger?

Yes, it works in automatch without any side effects. No synchronisation error, no risk of getting banned, no bugs.

I will do my best to keep it up to date, and update the mod itself quickly as well after an patch.

Yes, exactly! If the Panther is called "Panther PzKpfw V Medium Tank", then the P4 should probably be called "PzKpfw IV Medium Tank". Also, some tanks have the exact model in their name (OKW: "Panzer IV Ausf. J Medium Tank"), while most others don't (Ostheer: "Panzer IV Medium Tank", actually Ausf. H).

But that's only the history nerd in me talking :D Updating everything by hand after every patch is already enough work!

Anyway, as I said: Great mod idea, and thanks for releasing it. I'll use it for sure.

I will keep your suggestion in my mind and perhaps implement it in one of the next updates, as consistency is always a good thing.

26.12.2016 Update:

OKW Panther name from 'Panther PzKpfw V 'Medium' Tank' to 'Panther PzKpfw V Medium Tank'.
Wehrmacht Panzer IV name from 'Panzer IV Medium Tank' to 'Panzer IV Ausf. H Medium Tank'.

I delayed other name changes for now as changing the names would also require a change of their descriptions and commander dispatch ability strings.

Updated the 10,5cm leFH 18 Artillery veterancy strings. Now includes +40 damage for veterancy rank 3 and OKW variant bonuses. Due to the fact that Relic reused the veterancy rank 2 and 3 strings for 4 and 5, it ended up a bit messy.

Awesome work harold;
If its not too much;

you should definitely do this for abilities with modifiers, like auras, active abilities, etc. (I see you did repairs already.) if you can/are allowed to change the texts for them.

I wouldnt mind, infact I would be quite happy if you copy pasted the text from the ability guide here if you needed to. I'm sure it would make your job 100x easier if you have to type this data in yourself in any way.

:D nicely done!

Wouldn't it be possible to write a script that reads game files/database/whatever it has, to produce such file after every update without having to download new file?

Adding modifiers to ability strings and all that stuff is one thing I'm doing as an ongoing process. My main goal was to utilize the yellow extra text for that. Issue is: Relic reused the Zeroing Artillery "Click to activate." yellow text string for multiple other abilities which doesn't allow me to put more details into it and using the white description part would make descriptions messy.

Thanks for letting me use your guide, it will come in handy. :)

Good question. An automatic updater would be quite handy. I'm not a programmer though, someone else would need to do that.

Since Relic probably won't release any big updates anymore, like British Forces, keeping the file manually up to date is not a big problem as I sorted all the strings I modified in a seperate text file.

I think so! It should be fairly easy to do for stat modifiers, but when it comes to stuff that isn't actually listed in the vetrancy_ext, such as unlocked abilities, it might get a little complicated. Sounds like an interesting project, though!

Just a little nitpick (you are correcting periods anyway :) ) -
it was labeled "T-34-85", not "T-34/85".
Same for its little brother: it is "T-34 model 1943", not "T-34/76".
The difference is that first are Soviet labels, while second are German.
