How to increase british effort in Balkans theatre?

Post by Kossatx » Sun Apr 28, 2019 5:40 pm

Hi, I've never modded AI in CTGW, but I'd like to try it. I would like to begin increasing the british effort in the Balkans theatre sending more units. Anyone could help me about how to do it?

You mean ferrying troops from Egypt to the Balkans? If so there must be troops in Egypt to start with.

Open 1914.lua and go to line 127 where you will find the data for British troops in Egypt.

It reads:

Code: Select all

          {type = "smallgarrison", hex = {125, 66}, facing = "right"},
          {type = "smallgarrison", hex = {127, 67}, facing = "right"},
          {type = "smallgarrison", hex = {129, 68}, facing = "right"},
          {type = "smallgarrison", hex = {130, 66}, facing = "right"},
          {type = "smallgarrison", hex = {130, 67}, facing = "right"},
You can see that 5 small garrisons are stationed at the indicated hex coordinates. However small garrisons cannot be transported via sea transport.

Change these troops to something that can be transported like

Code: Select all

          {type = "infantry", hex = {125, 66}, facing = "right"},
          {type = "cavalry", hex = {127, 67}, facing = "right"},
          {type = "artillery", hex = {129, 68}, facing = "right"},
          {type = "garrison", hex = {130, 66}, facing = "right"},
          {type = "armouredcar", hex = {130, 67}, facing = "right"},

That is a question only the original coder could answer since only he would exactly know how the AI works.
