New mercenary companies can be added with files in

common/mercenary_companies

folder.

Official example of a mercenary company is as following:

merc__local_free_company = {
    regiments_per_development = 0.025
    cavalry_weight = 0.1
    artillery_weight = 0.1
    cavalry_cap = 2
    cost_modifier = 0.75
    trigger = {
        total_development = 150
    }
    modifier = {
        
    }
    # No home province means local mercenary company
}

In trigger you can write any condition for a country who'll be hiring mercs. In modifier you can assign modifiers only for a single army, no country-wide effects will work.
