    Unit Pack Compatibility Languages Project - Thrones of Britannia (UPC-TOB)


    What is the UPC?
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    The UPC project is necessary for all languages except English, because of added custom texts to the game by modders. Most of these texts are from Unit Pack Mods, Gameplay Mods and Overhaul Mods. Without the UPC you can not see these custom unit names, descriptions and other texts if you don't use the English language version.

    Mods are not compatible if they all include an own language file which contains the file localisation.loc. Therefore this mod aims to create an universal localisation.loc file that can be used to make as many mods as possible compatible. Then you can see all custom unit names, descriptions and other texts from the included mods.

    You can switch your language in the Steam options of Thrones of Britannia. If you switch to English, then all custom texts appear without the need of the UPC-TOB. This is because only the English language file system can directly read the custom texts from our mods. All other languages ignore the included custom texts. Therefore we make this UPC project. Each language needs a separate UPC language version.

    I will update the UPC with new orignal vanilla texts from future official patches and DLCs.

    The UPC doesn't contain any mods and you must download the mods from the related sites. It contains only the custom texts of the included mods.

    Please note that not all mods in each language are translated, but all custom entries are included in English and you can see at least English texts.

    There is a little rule in the UPC history. "It is better to see at least an English text, as there would be otherwise just a blank text."

    Information for modders
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    The UPC project is fully free and you can use it for your own mod as a base. Please give credits if you use the UPC.

    If you want that your mod will be included in this project, then please upload your exported TSV file with just your related entries here on the thread or send me a private message.

    I will include your entries into the next version.

    Installation
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Download, unpack and copy the file to your TOB data folder:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Thrones of Britannia\data

    Please check if there is more than one UPC_*.pack file in your data folder. If there are other custom language files from mods in this folder, then you have to delete them as they would conflict.

    The UPC file doesn't show up in the official Mod launcher and there is no Mod Manager needed to activate the mod.

    The UPC file is a special Movie type format file which loads automatically if you put the UPC file into your data folder.

    Enjoy UPC-TOB

    UPDATED ALL LANGUAGE FILES - 23.5.2018

    UPC language files

    Default Re: Unit Pack Compatibility Languages Project - Thrones of Britannia (UPC-TOB)

    I released the first version of the Unit Pack Compatibility Languages Project - Thrones of Britannia (UPC-TOB). All language versions feature the latest vanilla game localization.

    I created the UPC-TOB similar like I did it for previous games (Empire, Napoleon, Shogun 2, Rome 2, Attila). Thrones of Britannia has the same language system like Attila and therefore if a player uses another language than English, then the custom texts added from modders in their mods are not visible in game.

    UPC-TOB can be used to fix vanilla text errors and if you see any vanilla text errors in the game, then you can post it here on the thread and I will look at it.

    UPC-TOB is of course fully free for all modders to use it as a base for their mods. Mostly major mods and complete overhauls sometimes need to change the vanilla texts for their mods.

    Other modders can download the UPC-TOB base files and use it for their own mods to add custom texts regarding foreign languages. Please just inform me about this and give me credits on your thread.

    It would be also a big help if modders will upload their custom text entries via an exported .TSV file on this thread or send them via a private message. I will include these texts afterwards.

    UPC-TOB features 11 languages:

    German
    French
    Italian
    Spanish
    Portuguese
    Czech
    Russian
    Polish
    Turkish
    Korean
    Chinese (Simplified)

    I added these mods:

    Radious Total War Mod - Thrones of Britannia by Team Radious

    Seasonal Effects by Dresden by Dresden

    12 Turns Per Year by Dresden

    Ammunition Replenishment Mod by Magnar

    I translated already all custom texts into German in the UPC-German and also fixed some vanilla German text errors.

    Please read through the first post and I wrote there all imporant information about the mod and how to install the UPC-TOB.

    Enjoy UPC-TOB

    Today CA opened the Steam Workshop for Thrones of Britannia.

    As always with my UPC mods, I will not upload the UPC-TOB to the Steam Workshop and it must be still installed manually.

    This is because of a technical reason as not all Steam Workshops of the related games can handle the special mod pack type in which the UPC mods need to be that they work.

    I produce since 2010 the UPC mods and there are already 51 UPC mods available for all supported languages in 6 Total War games. (Empire = 9, Napoleon = 8, Shogun = 7, Rome = 8, Attila = 8, Thrones of Britannia = 11)

    Also in terms of the needed time it would not be managable for me to also release them on the Steam Workshop. Thanks for understanding my decision.

    Enjoy UPC-TOB

    Yes unfortunately CA used the same language system as in Attila and therefore the UPC-TOB is needed. Otherwise non-English players can't see any custom texts from mods in the game.

    CA released today a beta patch 1.

    Specifically in terms of languages they wrote this in the patch notes:

    "Please note, there are text changes in this patch that are not yet localised into other languages, the patch is best played in English for now."


    I will update the UPC-TOB for all languages with the new fixes as soon as the real patch will be officially released.

    Hey, I would love to translate this mod to Turkish but when I try to open the pack file I am getting an error. How can I see the text and translate it without getting any errors? Which program should I use to open it?
    I currently use PFM.

    Yes you need the newest Pack File Manager and then you can open any UPC_*.pack file. I'll write you a pm soon.

    Hello UPC-TOB users,

    I released an update of the UPC-TOB in all supported languages.

    The UPC-TOB is currently for the latest official release version of the game as I wrote earlier on this thread. The new beta patch 1 entries aren't included as CA officially stated that the foreign languages aren't yet supported in the beta patch.

    I updated these mods:

    Radious Total War Mod - Thrones of Britannia by Team Radious

    Unique Units Expansion by Moon Hoplite

    Addtional German translations by Swiss Halberdier.

    Thanks a lot to Yildizyusuf for his new translations of the UPC Turkish.

    Yes sure this is the right place to write your feedback. Please re-download the UPC Polish again and place it into the TOB data folder:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Total War Saga Thrones of Britannia\data

    The UPC does only support at the moment the mods which are listed in the section "Current mods support". So for these mods all entries are visible in game. I tested the UPC Polish and I can see all entries.

    Which mods do you exactly use?

    My path is D:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Total War Saga Thrones of Britannia\data <-- there I past upc_polish.pack nonunpacked right?

    I tested with mod Unique Units and probably Radious mod and I have blank description and don't have any name of unit.

    Yes if you installed the Steam Games on your Harddrive D:, then this path should be correct and yes put the UPC_Polish.pack there. And set the language in the Steam options of TOB to Polish.

    Please check if there is more than one UPC_*.pack file in your data folder. If there are other custom language files from mods in this folder, then you have to delete them as they would conflict.

    So I guess there must be another conflicting mod which causes your issues as I didn't received any feedback yet that the UPC mods don't work.

    However it could be of course if the modders of the supported mods already included new entries, that then there is a blank unit name. But it shouldn't be that absolutely no unit names are displayed for the supported mods.
