Ship Captain Ranks

Recommended Posts



I have been a long time supporter of the Aslains mod pack.  I did a quick search and couldn't find a particular type of mod that I've been wanting.  


I can read and understand the USA ship captain ranks, but I find the rank system annoying for every other country / foreign ships.  What the F*** is a "Kaigun Shoza".... or an "Oberleutnant zur See" :[.   Could someone from the community look into making a mod to rank commanders from 1-20 over their portrait, or allow all of the captain ranks to be in English (or other languages) regardless of country?


I apologize if this has already been requested but I don't see a thread about it on the first page and a quick search revealed nothing.


Thank you!!!!!!

I think he is asking for US Navy ranks to be listed on the other country's captains, eg. calling the first Japanese rank "Ensign".


Sorry about that I didn't see Aslain's post.  Yes I am asking for other country's captains rank to be the same as the Americans.  However, I would rather see the captains rank be displayed as a number on the portrait.  So rank 1 for an Ensign, then 2, 3, 4, 5, all the way to 20 for a Fleet Admiral.
