Map Making Reference Guide (POS2 XML) - Suggestions & Discoveries Corner
This topic is the central location to post your suggestions and discoveries about functionality of anything contained in the POS2.xml.
An example of appropriate posts for this topic would be:
a. You have suggestions to improve an existing description of a function in POS2.xml. Post the details here and it can be reviewed and if merited, updated.
b. You discovered that a information in POS2.xml is inaccurate, misleading or lacking critical details. Post details here and it can be reviewed and if merited, updated.
c. General POS2.xml discussion.
Refer to below for "POS2.xml recently implemented features":
Note, this topic is not a feature request topic.
Refer to below for the actual "feature request" link:
Copied your post here.
This property works only if the territory is owned by the player placing the units. Maybe should be reworded to "Place in Any Owned Territory".
The feature I would like to see is "Place in Any Unoccupied Territory". This would allow the Americans in my mod 'UNDER SIEGE: America' to place units behind enemy lines, a feature that is in the 'original' board game.
Food for thought. Thanks
@general_zod What would also be great is actually adding the discoveries/clarifications to the POS2 XML :)
Anyone should be able to create a pull request with changes here: https://github.com/triplea-maps/the_pact_of_steel/blob/master/map/games/pact_of_steel_2.xml
@redrum Still think it should probably be just a select person or persons to maintain clarity and consistency.
@hepps Well, I'll be reviewing all of the pull requests to ensure consistency. But its much easier for me to review a pull request than have to read through lots of threads and make all the changes myself.
@redrum Cool. I have no idea what great and mysterious powers the great Oz wields behind the curtain.
@hepps @redrum I agree completely. I'm just getting a topic to get it started. And we can nominate keepers (or not) in addition to the "de facto" current setup as @redrum indicated in a related discussion.
Plus I think this topic should help keep the other topic with the actual implementations to POS2 less crowded. So information can be, more quickly found there.
@redrum You may call me Shultz... I see nothing ... I hear nothing... i know nothing! Sometimes ignorance truly is bliss.
I propose a brief section devoted to images in POS2 or in one of the other help documents.
