Or do you have any tips on how to easily switch maps to LD?
I use my mod, BonusValue QuickOverrider, and the assumption that I want to remove all bonuses with more then X territories.
(Since you need to remove overlapping territories, this seems the best way)
This is NOT perfect, since it's not the designed usecase of the mod. But the few times I have done it, it has saved much time over manually changing the bonuses.
Also, after you make the template, remove the mod, since there is no need to have the game be a moded game, when all you are doing is overriding bonuses.
For the LD game itself, I would use the mod I made for it too. "Local Deployment Helper (Add past orders)" which helps.
I am open to suggestions if you have any concrete ideas about it.
