So I was looking for ways to rename my ships in game,but can't seem to find any answer until I saw this post on the NA forums,

thought I'll share it with you guys. Credits to original poster for discovering and sharing this method.

Link to original post will be given by the end of this post.

 

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TO BACKUP ANY FILE YOU'RE ABOUT TO MAKE CHANGES TO.

I DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU somehow MESSED UP YOUR GAME DURING THE PROCESS.

 

1) Locate the file that needs to be edited in order to change a ship name, this will be in your WoWs main directory "res\texts\ru\LC_MESSAGES\"

    the file you want is "global.mo"

 

2) Now you will need to convert the "mo" file to a "po" file

    Visit this website http://tools.konstruktors.com/ - use the top panel, browse to global.mo and then press the "convert" tab

3) Now that you have the "po" file, you need a program to edit it.... I use poedit due to its simple interface, you can find it here http://poedit.net/

    Open "global.po" with poedit... find what you want to change in the VERY long list and edit the name\value in the bottom table. Upon saving, It will save both a "po" and "mo" file. You only need the "mo" file. In this case we're editing turning Kongo into Haruna.

4) Now,go to your "res_mods" folder,in the 0.5.x.x folder,create another folder named "texts". And in that texts folder,create another folder named "ru",after that put the ".mo" file you made just now into the "ru" folder you just created in the "res_mods" folder.

 

5) Enjoy.

Apparently this renaming method doesn't work after patch 0.5.1.1

I will start a new post after I figured out how to mod it,requesting thread to be closed.
