I have renamed some unit XML file names (externally) of the stock game (and ultimately user modded game) for myself in such a way that the units list 'better' in the scenario editor and the Armour and Inf folders. I now present them to you for your approval.

Haven't all of you been cross-eyed by the way "late" versions of vehicles list before earlier versions in the scenario editor (eg "Xx_ late 44" comes before "Xx_ 44")? And they are not listed in vehicle type catagories, making it difficult to find them when applying them to scenarios.

What I've done is very cool to me: I like things organized for quick intellectual digestion. (I am a list-er and organizer by nature. Organized brain-folder scheme is one reason I'm smart [the other is congenital hyper nervous system]. I make things easier to lay into memory in my world.)

But I don't know if everyone else will like it since it systemically overwrites many stock files (but doesn't change game play). It is a good concept-- If not my scheme, someone's listing scheme should be used! I like the way it looks and works in the Scenario Editor.

Also I fixed certain things ("Sdk250, Wespe, Hummel Fix" --see 4th post below).

===================
Listing Mod --Armour

-Changed name of files only (_not name IN file_).

Listing Mod --Infantry

-Changed name of files only (_not name IN file_).

(Note by dates in the ScrnShot that I have incidentally installed files: Mraah's "Pioneers w/satchel charge". The "Listing Mod" does not include those; they are just in the SShots here.)

Note that most of 'my' organizing scheme was started by stock PzC.

===================
-User Mods: I rename if necessary. (And I re-save as-is to make the date more recent than stock files where necessary. This allows one to find post-stock additions more easily.)

-Captured or Allied mod tanks at bottom of list. (The joy of Z.)

"Sdk250, Wespe, Hummel Fix"~

~Fixed stock 'sdk 250': image in scenario editor didn't show the available summer paint; now it does.

~Fixed 'Wespe': stock PzC had it listed as indirect; changed to "assault gun" (only choice...), "OpenTop". Note it is not an assault gun; it is Self Propelled Field Artillery. But PzC only allows for "assault gun"(?).

~Fixed "150mm SP Artillery" stock image to a "Hummel" image: it was a 'wespe' image in PzC:K stock.

Note that both wespe and Hummel are given by PzC stock multiple times in different ways. ...As indirect "SP Artillery [gauge type]" (but not dilineated in PzC by nicknames "Hummel" and "Wespe"), and also as assault guns _as their nicknames (Hummel and Wespe)_. (I would not use these vulnerable --eg tall profile, thin, unwieldy-- vehicles as assault guns. They are simply motorized to keep up with their motorized divisions as Field Artillery (in rear). [There might have been exceptions.] SP Infantry Guns and assault guns and some PzJg were the close support non-tank vehicles; SP Field Guns weren't.)

====================
@#@#@#@#@#@#@#@#@#@#

What do you all think of this "listing Mod" (and Fix)? I, no matter what, will still use it in my world --'cause I can trust me... But Will you all really replace all your stock files with these?!...

I have not found any issues with externally renaming the files. But if anyone knows something about this that I don't tell me here.

-----------------
I listed things so...

For Germans:

`Air
`Field Guns
`werfer
`ATG
`SP ATG
`Tank
`Carriers/SP ATG/Assault guns
`Assualt Gun/destroyer
`SP Inf Gun
`back to Feld Geshutz (SP) at top.
`Captured [non stock]

````
For Russians, I know less about tactics:

`Air
`Field Gun
`Rocket /mortar
`ATG
`Light Vehicles
`Tanks
`Heavy Tanks
`SP. Guns (destroyers, Assualt Guns etc)
`Lend Lease.

Here is the "Listing Mod" Zip...
