You can do it for your personnal use only.
A question of basic mod etiquette
I didn't mean uncredited and as far as I know their is absolutely no difference between lifting them and doing them youself.
Besides, it's about an 8 second editing job for each of the three files, factions, campaigns_singleplayer and the story_sandbox file
EDIT: It would also be helpful if Sithman said what he was intending to do with the Empire. As it stands it's only changing those files around, unless he's balancing the campaigns_singleplayer file to find a good mix of starting units. Perhaps the AI?
