    The new units' civilopedia pages can't be entered by search/right click on tech/right click on unit portrait. They can only be entered by page links (e.g. enter Missile Destroyer page under Modern Destroyer's Upgrade Unit).

    This means Rocket Missile's page is completely inaccessible.

    @azum4roll

    Many aspects of what you did with ENW for your Photojournal (6-19-4) look very good to me.
    I'd like to make a new version 1.6.14 with some of your changes:

    • "-- fix anti-Sub promotions"
    • "-- rename Dreadnought promotions"
    • Air Supremacy I to Supercarrier
    • Turtle Ship unit class fix
    • Destroyer moved to Replaceable Parts and Advanced Destroyer moved to Particle Physics
    • PROMOTION_FIRE_SUPPORT dropped definitly for all Units
    • All Range Units do not see sub
    • A few of your general changes on strength

    Where I am not keen is :

    • PROMOTION_HEAVY_FIRE 50% vs Melee looks huge. Do Range Naval Units, able to damage Units safely, need that ?
    • PROMOTION_WITHDRAW_BEFORE_MELEE is like a fondamentale chance given to subs. And It matches well with what a sub is in RL.
    • All changes you make on UNIT_MISSILE_CRUISER. But you are right PROMOTION_LOGISTICS and PROMOTION_SEE_INVISIBLE_SUBMARINE are too much.
    • All changes you make on UNIT_SUPERCARRIER

    Your comments ?

    My design is a combat triangle of Melee > Sub > Ranged > Melee, gradually transformed from the Melee = Ranged parity that's Corvette and Frigate, and Ironclad and Cruiser.

    By making ranged ships have high CS, low RCS but a +50% against melee ships, they counter melee ships, do okay against land units, and have an extreme weakness to submarines. They also don't have resistance to planes, but won't fall that easily. Armor Plating on Missile Cruiser would stop it from taking much damage from pretty much everything except submarines, which is definitely not balanced.

    Melee ships' role changes from tanking and taking cities to intercepting planes and protecting ranged ships and carriers from submarines towards the lategame. VP made them too strong, so I lowered their CS a bit.

    Submarines are supposed to be weak to melee, but withdrawing from melee counteracts that, so it has to go. High RCS makes them resist ranged ship attacks.

    (Super)carriers' high CS makes them resist air strikes. Low RCS hopefully reduces the AI's tendency of using them to attack directly, and makes them weaker to submarines.

    Of course, all changes were just theorycrafted and I still have to test them using the current AI game.

    VP(8-16)
    -
    Anti-Sub I/II Now gated behind Navigation I
    Anti-Sub I tech locked behind Nuclear Fission (submarine unlock tech)
    Detect Submarines Now gated behind Anti-Sub-II
    Destroyer/Missile Cruiser Removed free anti-submarine promotions
    -

    I believe you and I need to play a least once without ENW to renew our understanding of where VP is going with Naval.
    Then, we will be able to think about what "Enhancement" we want.

    This is my answer to the 8/16 changes for my tweaked version.

    No change for Anti-Sub promotions
    Detect Submarines now gated behind either tier 1 promotions (Broadside I/Hull Upgrade I)
    Detect Submarines removed from free promotions except Advanced Destroyers

    Your tweaked version is interesting. Very. No doubt about it.

    ENW maintenance is something completly different. The base concept of ENW is to do what VP does with more Units. Nothing more and nothing less. I like this idea since the beginning and want to stick on it.
    Despite this conviction, ENW is moving further and further away from all vp naval rules. Naval rules changing almost once a month ! I'm getting tired with that.
    I don't understand the all thing about this bonus vs city for Ironclad/destroya already destroying cities easly, I don't understand the all thing about this withdraw promo giving to Destroyer but not to the missile cruiser. The detect Submarines removed is a big move. I'm concerne about that. Does it mean that the only priority now is to get "can see Sub" with XP? I hope AI know that... Btw, I've not been able to observe the "Can see sub" promo at any time with IE. Does it work really?

    I don't know anymore if it worth to stick on the VP concepts or if ENW must evolve and offer something different.
    For now, I'm going to play a game without ENW to feel the fondamental. (I don't even remember the last time I play VP without ENW) Then, I'll see what we can do.

    @azum4roll
    If your tweaked version is clean enough with also its TXT updated, could you upload it here? With comments about changes. You could call it something like ENW 1.6.13 Special Azum War Edition :rockon:

    I'll release it after testing. So far there's no stable enough version to test it thoroughly (what's lategame naval warfare when half of the planes randomly disappear?)

    With the new version there'll be more tweaking needed.

    Actually none of that work in VP(8-23-3)
    Regarding this bug (already reported) it appears that ENW (V 1.16.13) is the best alternative to see Subs and fairly deal with them.

    That's how VP works now. Subs are realy hidden underwater. You have to pick appropriate promotions to hunt them. Otherwise, they hunt you !


    - 2 -
    The annoying fact about ENW was the Destroyer available too early after the Ironclad. But now, everybody moved to make space between them.
    One technology column separates always all Naval Units.
    Submarine moved as well to be syncronized with The Destroyer.
