isLandTransportable for units with 0 movement

  • My Flak 88 has 0 movement and isLandTransportable but should be able to attack as far as the isLandTransport unit (truck at mov 2) can attack. Like now a truck with 2 movement can pick up a infantry which only has movment 1 and let it attack at max movement distance of the IsLandTransport unit (2 in this case).
    I tried to fiddle around with the GivesMovement option but that also doesnt function because in both ways it seams that movement has to be >=1 for the isLandTransportable unit.(?)

    I assume you don't have the "Selectable Zero Movement Units" property true.

    However, you may still want to make a Feature Request about handling this matter in a better way.

    Oh thank you so much, but i really cannot remember that option even though its not totaly foreign to my brain. Must be long time since i used that i guess.

  • <property name="Selectable Zero Movement Units"
    It seems that this only effects the player?

    <attachment name="unitAttachment" attachTo="Mot.Inf"
    <option name="attack" value="1"/>
    <option name="defense" value="2"/>
    <option name="movement" value="2"/>
    <option name="canBlitz" value="true"/>
    <option name="transportCost" value="4"/>
    <option name="isLandTransport" value="true"/>
    <option name="createsResourcesList" value="-1:PUs"/>

    With above isLandTransport unit, AI is able to pick up below isLandTransportable Unit and move it.

    <attachment name="unitAttachment" attachTo="Infantry"
    <option name="attack" value="1"/>
    <option name="defense" value="2"/>
    <option name="movement" value="1"/>
    <option name="transportCost" value="2"/>
    <option name="isLandTransportable" value="true"/>
    <option name="createsResourcesList" value="-1:PUs"/>

    But AI seems not be able to pick up following one:

    <attachment name="unitAttachment" attachTo="FlaK88"
    <option name="attack" value="2"/>
    <option name="defense" value="2"/>
    <option name="movement" value="0"/>
    <option name="transportCost" value="3"/>
    <option name="isLandTransportable" value="true"/>
    <option name="typeAA" value="AA"/>
    <option name="attackAA" value="3"/>
    <option name="maxAAattacks" value="1"/>
    <option name="mayOverStackAA" value="true"/>
    <option name="isAAforFlyOverOnly" value="true"/>
    <option name="createsResourcesList" value="-1:PUs"/>

    Seems its only for the player, and at least thats ok as long only the human player has units with movement=0.
    But i have a unit which is for all players, so thats problematic as i like to have it at 0 movement while still being transportable by the AI.
    Is there something i dont know?
