Barring I had no names for the faction, it worked. But I did not put REGIONS.CSV and SETUP_GROUPS. REGIONS.CSV, you don't have to touch it usually, as the factions defined there are usually overwritten by what you'll add in SETUP, so don't bother. It has a use when a region remains independent or if you want to change static data like terrain or trade goods.
So I suspect you made some errors in REGIONS.CSV probably, like forgetting a $

SETUP_GROUPS is a deprecated file with some left over values, you can do everything in SETUP now, by adding new groups of units there.

You should take a look and edit the master XLS files in Database, and then export to CSV, that will be clearer for you. The separator is the half colon ;

This is all I see when I use only my modded SETUP.CSV file.........



I've also looked at the master XLS files in Database, and then export to CSV, that isn't clearer for me ! Looks like gobbly de gook.

I'll check again what is in REGIONS.CSV but you don't need it for now, you can overwrite region ownership in SETUP.CSV

Usually not seeing any faction means you botched FACTIONS.CSV, more than SETUP.CSV ... I'll check that Monday. You are probably modding mostly on week-end, but except for a critical bug, I prefer not to code or debug during week-end, for my sanity (or what remains of it :wink: )

I checked again factions.csv and I see you put your faction at the start of the file and then put some line jumps. Don't do that, I believe it will pose issues. If you want maximum compatibility, then add your new factions at the very end. If you don't mind not being compatible with any saved game, then you could add them in the middle of the file.

I'm posting the latest database in another thread, see for further instructions.
