Very easy to install and extremely light (150 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 flags, symbols, icons are replaced by the accurate ones for a better game play experience, this Historical add-on is a visual/cosmetic change, your COH Blitzkrieg Mod game will remain untouched.

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: Blitzkrieg V4.8.2.0 BKCMPV Patch Installer 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.27 (main file to be installed first):

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

* NEW: Adding the Historical Ranking system V.3 in replacement of the Relic veterancy system (white squares) all units will receive now their real WWII ranks, the Veterancy Ranks V.3 is not ONLINE COMPATIBLE, if you installed the Veterancy Ranks V.3 "dataattrib" folder in your main Blitzkrieg Mod for solo plays make sure to remove it before going online for multiplayers plays, this also will not touch or brake anything from your original Blitzkrieg game files.

For the Historical Ranks V.3 (side file to be installed in second):

Same thing as the Historical add-on V.27 "data" file, Go to your COH Main directory and add like the Historical add-on V.27 "data" file the « Dataattrib » Ranks V.3 file in your main Blitzkrieg Mod 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_V" -"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.27 "Data" folder and the Ranks V.3 "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.

Great works once again, Justforfun1!

In regards of the veterancy addon where it says "NOT ONLINE COMPATIBLE" - does it mean I can't play with my friend even if she also has it?

no you can't, you can try but i really don't think it will work, as soon you change the Relic dataattrib file, you will not be able to play online, if it work it would be a miracle :) maybe in Lan... Thats why i did this "folder" system to the add-on, easy to put, easy to remove without touching original Relic files.

Thanks for the reply! I'll try it later with my friend to see if it works and get back to you!

On another note, I noticed a bug with the rank addon! In Terror, you can't build panthers when the rank addon is installed. If you remove it (but keep the normal addon) the panther is buildable. This was in skirmish vs an AI.

Here's a screenie with ranks-addon: I.imgur.com (notice, the panther is missing in Heavy Panzer Factory)

Here's a screenie without the rank addon: I.imgur.com (panther active)

you must have a problem, because i don't have this bug with the ranks on, i ask to another tester as well and him also don't have this problem, the Panther Ausf. G is build able without problem, sorry mate, did you upgrade the panzer factory? ;) here the tests we just did Img15.hostingpics.net its surely a missing icons problems like you had before, did you removed manually all the old files of the old bk before reinstalling bk mod?

Hi again. Thanks for your reply.
Do I have to remove the whole mod? I reinstalled it 2 months ago.
Or do you mean your historical addon-mod?

I might have just overwritten your old version instead of removing and replacing. Thanks, I'll try doing it now and test the ranks addon again to see if there's a panther in Terror.

Unfortunately I get the same issue I.imgur.com even after completely deleting the data folder and reapplying a fresh copy of your latest version along with the ranks mod.

when you have missing icon problems means that Blitzkrieg isn't well installed, or some BK files are corrupted, you need first to uninstall bk with the uninstaller then seek bk files who are still in your coh relaunch folder, then when you're sure there is no more bk files you reinstall bk mod + the patch and then drop my 2 folder in it, there is a lot of people who needs also to reboot, its happened often, you will face the same problems with others mod, its not a big deal but its happening, and for now you're the only one who got that problem...
