Issues with modding data?

Hey, so I’ve recently uploaded a historical realism type data mod onto I finally got the mod to download properly into my game, although it looks like other people downloaded it with no issue. However I noticed that many of the changes I made in Advanced Genie Editor did not carry over into the game, even when I had the mod selected. I double-checked the .dat file, and the changes I made were still in the file. So basically I’m wondering if changes to unit stats and technologies carry over? The tech tree changes I made still applied but no unit changes? Very frustrating- wondering if anyone knows how to resolve this?
