    I'm going to dive into the Estab Editor properly and was wondering how the naming to best name the forces I create. I've been looking at the list and can somewhat deduce a convention, but I'm not sure.

    Like:
    WF - VGD - Gren Bn HQ

    WF -> Module or Scenario?
    VGD -> Volksgrenadier probably
    Gren Bn HQ -> The unit itself

    I want to mimic existing units but I need to be sure of what I'm doing. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    WF - Western Front I guess.
    BB - Battle Of The Bulge (?)
    But if you look at COTA estab from "The Cauldron" module you will see a different naming scheme.

    You seem to get the idea. WF are the base "west front" estabs, then we added specialized estabs for the different modules BB (bulge) MG (Market Garden). "FB" were some estabs created by a splinter team for what later became Westwall. These FB estabs were dozens of quasi-duplicate WF estabs with very minor, pedantic changes that I had to comb through and purge because the estab file was growing out of control.

    We have abandoned the old COTA naming format, more or less. Your safe with keeping with the basic WF for now I suppose.
