isConstruction for sea zones
is this possible ? I tried making isSea but said it needed a factory. I guess I could make an invisible factory type unit and put in the sea zones.
I wonder if
is why it won't work. Maybe that'd be an easy code addition, if so ?
Really unsure of what you are asking here. By default "Sea Zone"s, "isWater" territories/zones have no production value. Unit placement/production is guided by the a joining land territory/zone production values. If you want to create units in "isWater" zones, you might have to set "production" and or "unitProduction".
@wc_sumpton cool yea have a repair unit for naval ships that have been hit, but it can only be placed on land. So wanted to be able to place in sea zones but it requires ownership i think to place ?
At any rate , will give it a shot.
@beelee Should be possible. Try placing a construction with isSea attributes and also give it production attributes. But confirm that your current settings allow for construction placement without factory otherwise will need to build next to a factory.
Heres a few to check and or use. refer to POS2.xml for complete lists
values: allows a unit to be a factory, without all the other things that come with being a factory (like capturable, land, non-combat, etc). So if you want flying factories, go ahead. Just don't complain if you get errors.
values: allows the unit to be placed in territories that don't contain factories.
Only "constructionsPerTerrPerTypePerTurn" contructions of "constructionType" may be placed per territory per turn.
May have only "maxConstructionsPerTypePerTerr" constructions Total per territory with/without a factory unless you enable "More Constructions with/without Factory", which will allow up a total number of up to the territory value.
"Unlimited Constructions" game property allows unlimited constructions total in a territory.
values: is just a unique string which identifies what kind of construction this, if two or more constructions have the exact same constructionType (and the same PerType rules), then they will follow the same rules for placement.
example: if you have little_bunker and big_bunker both as type "bunker", with constructionsPerTerrPerTypePerTurn=2, then you could place 2 littles, or 2 bigs, or 1 little and 1 big in a territory
If you do not want this unit to be effected by the global properties "More Constructions with/without Factory" and "Unlimited Constructions", then make sure the type ends in "structure".
values: is how many of this type you can place in a territory every turn
values: is how many max of this type may be in a territory. this must be greater than constructionsPerTerrPerTypePerTurn
if "More Constructions with/without Factory" = true, then the minimum will be either maxConstructionsPerTypePerTerr or the PU value of the territory (whichever number is greater) in territories with/without factories
if "Unlimited Constructions" = true, then this number becomes 10000
Also @wc_sumpton is correct the sezone may need production values.
