Modified OOBs and PBEM
 
I'm really looking forward to start some PBEM soon.

Since i love my fellow Bundeswehr, i (started to) correct the OOB44 to bring it up to a state of being historically correct (as good as possible).

Mostly redone the organization and corrected some availability dates:

MARS batteries for example were planned and formed on the organizational level in the late 1980s already, but actual delivery to the Bundeswehr didn't happen until 1990-1993.

Another example is the "Fliegerfaust 1" (German designation for the Redeye SAM) which was used until the introduction of the "Fliegerfaust 2" (Stinger) in 1992.

I didn't change any stats tho (didn't find any mistakes here so far), no weapons altered or TI added to units or the like.

Question is: is it, from the technical pov, possible to play a PBEM with a modified OOB when the opponent used the vanilla one or will this cause problems like it's the case with scenarios?

I'm aware usage of a modified OOB in PBEM would be a negotiation thing.

If people or even the developers are interested in corrections regarding the 1980s ("Heeresstruktur IV" army structure 4) OOB44, i am gladly ready to post my findings with sources in a seperate thread.

If you want to play with a modified OOB then your PBEM opponent must install it for the duration of the game. He could swap it out for the default one in between plays, and of course once the game is done but while playing a turn, the OObs must be the same ones the PBEM was started with.

From the Game Guide:

A regular secure PBEM game also requires that the exact same OOB files be used by both players. A Basic secure PBEM does not.This is mentioned below, in more detail.

Ah damn, thats pretty much work for the opponent. I won't ask others to swap OOBs all the time and will instead stick with the vanilla version then.

Thanks for answering my question.
I'll write myself a "check the game guide first!" post-it ;)
