How to make a unit that does not require a factory to be built/placed.



  • Does anyone know how to make a unit (say infantry) that does not require a factory to be built or placed?

    Thanks.

    @SLW2000 You can make any unit not require a factory and be placed anywhere by setting isConstruction to true. An example would be like bunkers in NWO/WaW:

        <attachment name="unitAttachment" attachTo="Bunker" javaClass="UnitAttachment" type="unitType">
          <option name="attack" value="0"/>
          <option name="defense" value="3"/>
          <option name="hitPoints" value="2"/>
          <option name="isConstruction" value="true"/>
          <option name="constructionType" value="bunker"/>
          <option name="constructionsPerTerrPerTypePerTurn" value="1"/>
          <option name="maxConstructionsPerTypePerTerr" value="1"/>
        </attachment>
    


  • @redrum Thanks for the info and it works great.

    I had another question: how do you enable "More Constructions without Factory"? I wanted the unit to be buildable up to the territory value like other land units.

    Thanks.

    @SLW2000 You just need to add these 2 properties and set them to true to the properties list at the end of the XML:

        <!-- if true you may have a number of constructions up to the value of the territory, in territories with factories -->
        <property name="More Constructions with Factory" value="true" editable="true">
          <boolean/>
        </property>
        <!-- if true you may have a number of constructions up to the value of the territory, in territories without factories -->
        <property name="More Constructions without Factory" value="true" editable="true">
          <boolean/>
        </property>

    @redrum Those are stack limits, not placement limits.

    @SLW2000 What you want to do is not possible. However, you can have factories in all territories, then a unit that is required by all normally placeable units, except the units you would want to be placeable without factories.

    @SLW2000 Please, take a look at the descriptions. "Maps & Mods" says: "Talk about and work on specific Maps and Mods".

    Moving this thread to Mapmaking.

    When you will have your specific map or mod, feel free to open a thread about that in "Maps & Mods" (though I still suggest opening threads in Mapmaking for the technicalities, to keep your thread cleaner for general feedback).
