Very easy to install and extremely light (200 Mb), the Historical add-on is a complete cosmetic rework historically accurate based on the Normandy battle during the D-Day on June 6th 1944, the Historical add-on will take you into the Normandy battle and give you access to the real combat units who fought in Normandy, all the fake uniforms, flags, symbols, icons etc... are replaced by the real ones for a better game play experience, this Historical add-on is a visual/cosmetic change, your COH Blitzkrieg Mod game will remain untouched.

How Historical Add-on work? very simple, Historical Add-on is a simple folder when placed into your game the PC will take in count this folder first and apply all the cosmetics changes from this folder.

You will need to install manually the Historical data file to your Blitzkrieg Mod main folder game, just make sure to read the instructions below, or attached to the Historical add-on .Zip file.

This add-on will not touch any of your original game files, will not change the way you play Blitzkrieg, will not break anything from your beloved game, and will not slow down your online multi players gaming experience, also, and i really think its important for a lot of people here, you don't have to be an expert or a genius in informatics to install it.

You need to have the latest Blitzkrieg Mod installed to your ORIGINAL Company of Heroes game, for info the latest one is: Blitzkrieg V4.8.0.0. Complete Installer, plus the latest Blitzkrieg patch VI: Blitzkrieg V4.8.3.0 BKCMPVI Patch and your Steam account ( Steamcommunity.com ) updated before installing this add-on, this add-on also is made for the Originals and untouched Blitzkrieg Mod files, if you have customs files others than the originals ones this add-on "might" not work properly, im saying "might" because i tested also with custom files and its working so far...this add-on is FREE from bugs!

** Installation description:

For the Complete Historical add-on V.43 (to be installed first):

Go to your COH Main directory file and find your main Blitzkrieg folder, in the main Blitzkrieg folder you need to add the « Data » Historical add-on folder in your main Blitzkrieg Mod folder.

* NEW: Adding the Historical Ranking system V.7 in replacement of the Relic veterancy system (white squares) all units will receive now their real WWII ranks.

For the Historical Ranks V.7 (to be installed in second):

Same thing as the Historical add-on V.43 "data" file, Go to your COH Main directory files and add the « Dataattrib » folder in your main Blitzkrieg folder.

Directions: c:/Program Files(x86)SteamSteam Apps-->Common-->Company of Heroes Relaunch-->Blitzkrieg, Normaly in the Blitzkrieg folder you should have some files like: "Archives" - "BKCMPatch_VI" -"BKCMPatchInstalled" - "Locale" (If you don't have that i suggest that you update your Blitzkrieg Mod) its in there that you need to add the Historical add-on V.43 "Data" folder and the Ranks V.7 "dataattrib" folder, if you don't want this add-on anymore in your game just remove those 2 files from your Blitzkrieg Mod main folder, easy!

* If you have some trouble with some texture, it means that your Blitzkrieg Mod isn't up to date or your installation isn't well done, or you have with the time some corrupted files, i suggest that you uninstall your Blitzkrieg Mod game and reinstall it from scratch with the latest version.
