Changing the random scenario in People’s Tactics

I discovered today that it is possible to change the random scenarios in the game People’s Tactics (scroll down and look in the sidebars to see the People’s Tactics download).

People’s tactics uses the scenario scenarios/2PL_Two_Rivers.pt1 to determine the type of units and other game rules for random scenarios; if you back up this file and then rename, say, 2PL_World_War_One.pt1 to have the name 2PL_Two_Rivers.pt1, random scenarios will now have World War I units (no tanks until this technology is purchased with political points, etc.).

Cool way of getting more variety out of People’s Tactics’ random scenarios.
