I have opened all the .gtp files and I can't find anything where a career squadron is located, or the ranks, or the info on the career pilot (at time of creation) ect. I wanted to maybe change the rank descriptions (Sergeant) and a few other things. Any idea where they might be located? or am I SOL? thanks guys.

TBH, I'm not sure how much of the career stuff can be modded.  I know it's possible to change the pictures that career mode allows you to choose for your pilots, so it's not completely locked down.  I'm pretty sure some folks were messing around a few years ago trying to alter the pilot biographies, but I can't remember whether they were ever successful.  I made a lot of modifications to the career config files a few years ago to add in a lot more ace and historical pilots and their skins/paintjobs into the career mode and getting the units to use their historically-correct markings during the appropriate periods of the war, but that was by working directly with the devs on the official files and wasn't really a "mod" as such.

 

I haven't looked at those .gtp files in years and don't remember offhand where any of the possibly moddable files might be located.  I'm kinda tied up with RL stuff tonight, but if I remember and get a chance over the weekend I'll take a look and see if I can jog my memory as to where they might be.

Yeah - it really is amazing what Pat was able to do with PWCG.  I especially like what he did with making it possible to assign custom skins to your entire squadron.
