You should be able to rename bases, but you'll have to change it in alot of places.

if you're gonna move bases its my guess you'll have to update the borders aswell.

and you cannot just edit your savegame, you'll have to get into gamedata.vfs and change it there, if you just want to change the name of a base then edit localization.vfs

Oh right, localizationPack.vfs it is, the vfs files are giant archives, they're not encrypted but compressed. If you look in the mods section of this site, or follow the link in my signature below you'll find tools that help extract and reassemble these archives.

When you've extracted the contents of gamedata.vfs you'll just have to experiment, i dont think anyone has done what you want before. Copy the files you need to change to a new directory (use the same directory structure) and edit them there. Then use vfstool to import your modified files. Oh, And make backups of everything. Perhaps its easier to make alpine plugins, i dont know.

Have look in the mods forum aswell.

Hm, just a thought maybe you could simply use a base nearby (keep it's coordinates, though)and change it's name in the savegamefile. This wouldn't be perfect, but could eventuallywork.

To change the starting position you have to edit one of the baseownership files ('baseownership.txt' for USA, 'baseownership_as.txt' for asian and 'baseownership_eu.txt' for the european start positions.) In these files all bases are listed with a "H" for bases in your posession and "A" for bases not in your posession.
I have not yet found out how to set one of your starting bases as a engineering base. When I changed the starting location all the bases were military. (in stead of one engineering and one military)

It is also possible to add a new base (via 'listofbase.txt'), but then you have to change the borders as well ('bordersdata60.txt' = lot of work)
