Full game reinstallation is highly recommended when replacing old with new megamod version (for example v1.06 to v2.1).
TWoS v2.1.0 should be gamesave compatible with v2.0.1 and newer although there is a possibility that some changes won't be visible until your next fresh career start or advancement to the next campaign chapter (this depends largely of your TWoS version at the moment of your career start)...

so if you have a previous 16.8 version of the patch in the MOD folder. do you remove it before extracting the new 17 version or do you just extract into MODS folder and overwrite or replace the files when prompted ?

Nice mod I really like it.
By the way it's working with Steam. I had first to launch Stean and Uplay.
Then I launch the game for Uplay.
So, no problems with Steam or Uplay.

Thanks again !

Hello Thank you for your great MOD

is there a way to change the damage control lettering back to English?

-side note
I have followed the instructions on Youtube to edit the game with the HxD editor in order to change the map tool colour scheme, but I get an error code from the steam launcher.

Is there a mod that can do this as the default lines are near impossible to see.
