Hey will generals get mad at me if I rename the upgrades? For example if I changed Upgrade Upgrade_ChinaAircraftArmor to just Upgrade_AircraftArmor would the game be mad at me? I'm hoping, despite the stupid amount of work for little return, that I can rename most upgrades to something more applicable. As an example, I want to combine ChinaAircraftArmor and AmericaCountermeasures into a single AircraftArmor. US jets would still gain the effect of countermeasures, and china jets would get a health increase. The point is that the upgrade name is more intuitive to what it does. A better example would be a straight change of Upgrade_Nationalism to Upgrade_TechTree1 or something, and then that upgrade is used to represent certain tech tree upgrades between generals. It'd still work the way Pend has it (overlapping upgrade effects to increase number of possible upgrades) but it'd be far more intuitive for future coding.
Considering Pend has established his own upgrades (USAHBOMB, Escalation1) I believe it's possible, but could use some confirmation.
