Just to back up Helpless here. During the Christmas break, I made two scenarios from scratch that are currently in testing. Every conceivable unit that fought on the Eastern Front is in the database and if we missed one, we will add it as long as there are references to back it up. The editor is quite usable and if you run into problems, just post them up in the editing forum and we will answer them.
We plan to allow higher flexibility in mod making, i.e. locked generic data in scenario, ability to use mod folders for the arts and generic data, ability to switch on/off hardcoded functions, etc. But due to the limited programming resources the more emphasis is put on general game stability and balance first.
Anyway, current editor is not something which cannot be used. We had quite a few guys who were able to create new or contribute by manipulating existing scenarios.
