this might be a bit late to ask (because RTW2 was released earlier this year) but is there a guide or similar on how to mod RTW? Or even a list of stuff that can be modded vs stuff that is hardcoded into the game? I remember some modding techniques being described in some of the threads, but they are scattered all over the place.
What I'm particularly interested in, would be changing the rebuilding rules for quad mounts. Because there aren't any! Once you have a quad on a ship, you're stuck with it.
In my most recent game (which I started celebrating rtw2) I couldn't build superfiring turrets until the early 20's and didn't have access to superfiring B mounts until about 1930. I did however have quadruple and improved quadruples in the early 10's. Since I was playing Germany I didn't have any (really) big either - so I build quite a few 4|3-3 ships, because side turrets can only be doubles and you cannot combine cross-deck firing with a turret in position V (the only superfiring I was allowed to use). And it really annoyed me I couldn't rebuild them to 3|2-2 or even 2|2-2 ships with larger guns. In fact I could only rebuild them removing the forward turret or putting smaller guns on them.
