Skalgrim mod is an overhaul of the original game. It features thousands of changes for an overall new experience of Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2. It adds new ships and titans and changes the stats for weapons, units, and campaign related things. It rebalances the game and makes for several times larger battles by both lowering shipcosts and increasing the amount of points available for both fleets and battles. Fleet sizes grow with levels just as in the original game, but the end result is many times larger battles. It rebalances critical hits, making bigger ships more resistant to crits. It rebalances morale, and several morale related effects. It buffs many abilities, meaning that your choices matter more as a admiral. Balancing is ongoing, so check back for updates.

PS: The 1.7 version has a slightly different installation process with one more step than previous. Its a step that you have to do for it to work. Follow the installation instructions. They are simple.
IMPORTANT UPDATE AND INFORMATION:
Rollback fix for "Cadian Gate" steam update problems is now available. Look for it in article/comments.

So as you'v noticed the latest update ("Cadian Gate Update" of september 7 2020) caused a ton of problems for mod users. The solutions to this is slightly bothersome and until/if ever a proper solution from the devs comes around I'v created a work-around, by simply providing a roll-back to the previous version, but using the updates version information - which should trick Steam into thinking you are up to date and thus letting you play the mod as you did prior to the update.
Now since this means moving around the massive 40gb vanilla .pak file it has been compressed as much as possible. Its still a large download and it will take time to unpack.
Installation instructions are simple enough:
1: Unpack all files in the bundle and let them replace any files currently in your Battlefleet Gothic Armada II folder.
2: Unpack the BattlefleetGothic2-WindowsNoEditor.pak file and let it replace the one in your Paks folder. (Remember that if you want to install Skalgrim mod the .pak file in the bundle will need to be placed in a new folder called "Stock" within the Paks folder as per Skalgrim mod installation instructions.)
Playing Skalgrim mod after rollback:
Install Skalgrim mod as per mod installation instructions. Rember to use the -NoEAC line as per instructions.
Secondary solution: (Not recomended)
Reinstalling the mod(s) after the Cadian Gate update + running WITH EAC but OFFLINE gives a bunch of warnings when entering the main menu - which can be clicked away. The game+mod(s) functions as intended after this. But with this we cannot play coop any longer with our mods.
