Locked information?

Post by semmes » Sat May 08, 2010 2:34 pm

Squads in armies in scenarios in campaigns are locked? I changed config/system and squads.csv.xls but it seems that those changes only work in my armies created afterwards through skirmish/editor. IF I edit an scenario I add or disband a squad but I can only change weapons.
So, if I replace STARTING.SAV and /default armies changes will apply to them, good. What about other armies?

May I increase the size of a existing map?

Reducing men in squads fine but increasing the size of tiles (formations) wouldn't crash, just wouldn't load the game.

Thanks.

I think it would depend on the changes you made - things like the stats on a unit aren't (IIRC) baked into the armies that are used for the battles. But things like weapons might be.

The maps are built to size, so changing the size of them isn't very practical.

To increase the size of formations you would need to increase the numbers of men defined in the formations files. There is also an internal limit (I don't have the code in front of me to tell you what it is though).

Cheers
