New unit trait "veteranUpgrade"

Post by GabeKnight » Sun Aug 25, 2019 1:35 pm

There's a new trait with the Soviet Guards infantry units: "veteranUpgrade"

Has somebody already experimented with it? What does it do exactly? Is it possible to "abuse" it for new unit ideas? :shock: :D

Where exactly did you see the word "veteranUpgrade"?
It's not mentioned for the Gds in the Nav Tool, and I can't see it on the units themselves in the editor.

This new unit trait seems directly related to specialization, I do not feel that this feature can be used for other units :(

Here it is in the Specialisation screen, some text is missing

Thanks, Spike, for your effort, but I was talking about the unit trait, not the spec. It's found in the units file; with the units...

No, just tested it with an "elite" version of the KV2: It works as upgrade for other units as well. Nice.

Now I'll have to come up with some ideas for a reasonable application in the game...

Good news, it would then be possible to have Guards Tanks and Guards Artillery ?
Did you use a new specialization or the existing Guards Infantry specialization ?

You don't need a spec for the trait to work. The "Guard" spec is basically just limiting the purchase of the units.

But the trait obviously unlocks access to the new units to any 4-star unit inside the same unit-class. The possibilities are interesting, at the least.
