Under Construction

 
Make sure you have at least one working version of Cossacks II : Napoleonic Wars or Cossacks II: Battle For Europe installed on your computer.

 
The different tools to download can be found under our
Downloads  or get the
All GSC ToOol Pack version 1.01 which contains all the tools in one pack. 
The ALL GSC Tool Pack also contains tools for CI , so you might not need them all.
 
 
A short description of the tools & their use: 
  • GSC GigaPacker : Unpacks & packs .g16 & .g17 files.
  • GSC Triangulator: Breaks down .g16 & .g17 files in triangles to make the files smaller.
