For those that have changed game files....

I would like to change the "Roster" files to add ships to countries' fleets that they actually had.

Can I copy an existing file to another, and have that ship now show up in the game with a different flag, or is there more involved?

I'm not trying to create ships. Too computer illiterate.

Any help (in "english") would be appreciated.

started working on this myself this past week. Got tired of the americans not having any battleships so i copied over the config files from roster/Britain/sea to the roster/US/sea folder.
once copied open the desired cfg file
and u will see this at the top

ClassName=BBRevenge
UnitType=11
AppearanceDate=19160316
DisappearanceDate=19480301
DisplayName=US BB Washington <--this line changed to give it US identification

Shouldn't be any problems at all. Just cut and paste them into the relavent folder. You don't even need to do what Jbacon69 suggests, although its a very good idea for keeping things a bit simpler when you add them in using the mission editor.
